Was suggested to me by my health care practitioner. I took one at bedtime each night. Even though I don't have a problem sleeping, sleep felt even a little more restful, and good for mood - depression and anxiety. I used this and Source Naturals brand, both were good.
Use for cooking, salad dressing, have also used diluted as skin toner/treatment (too smelly though...and stings, not sure it really did a lot), mix with bentonite clay for facial mask, use dilute as hair rinse...
I have used this for UTIs, to make my own cleaners, add to witch hazel or aloe for toners, in Waterpik, on toothbrush...
The scent reminds me of Doublemint gum. This was fine, (I have normal hair that is not very fussy) but for the sake of simplicity and not having multiple huge bottles in the shower, I just use the unscented body wash for my hair too, which works just as well for me, and add my own essential oils sometimes. Like that it is SLS/paraben free, fair trade, short simple ingredient list...
Worked well and I always got compliments on the scent, but I couldn't stand it. Too fakey, overpowering and almost plasticky smelling. I absolutely love vetiver, this definitely does not smell like vetiver.
Can't imagine going back to pastes and gels again. I really like this, have tried mint and cinnamon. It's really not that hard to get used to. People complaining about it being messy might try not squeezing the bottle, just let it fall out, it's not that bad. Prefer the taste to overly sweet stuff. No glycerin, that is why I tried it in the first place.
Not much to say, just a great clay to incorporate into your routine. I always have it around and try to use weekly, I leave on for longer than the label says. Works best when mixed with vinegar, water makes it clumpy. Sometimes I use part vinegar and part water, or hydrosol, or aloe gel. Does turn you bright red for a little bit! Makes more "applications" than the label suggests, for me.
This was my first iHerb order! Have had it for 3 years (even though now they recommend replacing yearly), at the time it was 18.99...worth the money, would have been even at full price. Does take some getting used to but so glad I tried it, wouldn't go back. Just the one box to recycle, so much less waste. Save some money, save your plumbing, possibly save yourself from some irritation from whatever else you're using (yes, even the organic, unbleached stuff)...do yourself a favor and try it!
I bought a few of these to melt down and add my own essential oils.
Usually buy HerbPharm's...tried this one, it's fine too.
