We LOVE the Sierra Bees standard lip balms and have used them since Iherb first offered them on the trial deal. Unfortunately this slight change in their ingredients caused one in our household to have an adverse reaction that brought odd tingly and irritation. Because we LOVE Burt's Bees and have tried the Alba Botanica without any reaction, we never considered there would be an issue. I suspect it's the Lauryl Laurate... We liked the light color, but don't want the problems with it.
Best for the first part of your cycle. Great for day or night with plenty of adhesive power to stay in place. Excellent for the money and without all the horrible chemicals that can cause irritation to your most sensitive places!
This oil is fantastic and we won't be without it. I recently found an older herbal book from the 80's and the author was referencing the great power of this oil, proving it's been long known. We did a bit of an experiment this winter when the whole family was sick. We found that congestion WITHOUT using the Olbas oil neat (directly on our skin) as some would use 'Vick's Vapor Rub', took significantly longer to break up and heal. We have found great benefit adding a sprinkle to a bath or shower and I use it neat or with a bit of organic jojoba oil to alleviate the severe neck pain from a decade's old car accident injury - all without the preservatives and junk added to 'other' products. It doesn't leave my skin heavy feeling, just refreshingly tingly for quite some time. I have sensitive skin and this is one product that has never, ever given me problems and the smell - oh, so refreshing and clean!
Recommended as it is a high quality, natural option - minus the gmo junk of others....
So appreciate another option that is less expensive but great quality compared to the long stand alone Dr. Bronner's...
As this works well in conjunction with our other natural washing supplies, we find it works for all members of the family without being overwhelming. We have one particular member of the family that MUST have a smell to his clothes and it does the right job.
This soap smells amazing, lasts long and isn't too harsh on the skin. Not as soothing as a milk based soap, but lacks a number of the junk chemicals in so much of what is available today.
Appreciate non-gmo...notice it takes less than other brands to reach tolerance level...
Loaded with good herbs but WATCH OUT for the Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. For this reason we will be finding another option.
