As far as I'm concerned, Basil oil is the best kept secret of human health. One drop of Basil combined with a drop of Lavender is magic on muscle spasms. And it is my favorite remedy for a dancer's pains. Plus, mosquitoes don't seem to like it! The pleasant scent has gotten many a compliment. It doesn't smell like Pesto sauce.. instead there is a deep, almost licorice, undertone. When my bottle arrived, just opening the little plastic bag around it made me heady. I love this stuff.

I have found Black Walnut Hulls to be especially helpful in relieving bloating, and as a complement to enzymes or HCl which help with digestion.
This is a lovely color, very close to my natural blush color. I'm naturally fair-skinned, but after years in the tropics I have a bit of leftover yellow-ish tan. So when considering whether to get the cooler pink or warmer peach, you might also figure in how much of a tan you have. It is possible to be fair/light skinned and still be on the warm spectrum. The peach livens up my skin tone without looking artificial. People say, "You're looking perky today!", or "You seem to be healthy!" I like how it works when applying. There's no greasy feel, as so many have said, nor is there a mineral-y sparkly sheen. Instead you get a kind of translucent glow, which is great for my over-50 complexion. It's easy to smooth in, and when you apply a second stroke it deepens the color slightly, so you can layer it carefully by degrees. Just about the perfect blush, in my book!
My experience with Chanca Piedra, or "Break-Stone" is that it is a very gentle herb that gradually softens deposits so the body can get rid of them. Since there are different kinds of mineral deposits, I'm sure a person should research more deeply about which ones are affected by this herb. This product is a nice way to take the herb, and it really helped me with salivary stones. Some people also drink it in a tea--one reviewer said she emptied the capsules into a tea bowl. But bring it to your doctor's attention before you use it, since minerals are so key to the body's health, you don't want to upset the balance. Still, this herb might just be part of restoring that balance. I felt the price was fair, and the herb was effective. The scientific name for the herb is Phyllanthus Niruri.
These are a really pleasant way to prep the sensitive tummy for a meal. But don't make my mistake and take too many. Even with the "G" removed from the licorice, some people can experience edema if too many of the supplement are eaten in a short period of time. I've placed my next order, but I'll be using with caution, and adding in daily lemonade to the mix. (and, yes, I can drink lemonade again .. so thank you DGL!)

So yummy. Perfect for a party. If you liked the mint wafers sold by Girl Scouts, you will adore these. They are a good pick-me-up, and ex-TREME-ly consoling. The inner cookie is oreo-like, and the outer chocolate is significant without being so dense that it makes the cookie smushy. I would dare to say it is the perfect cookie (as long as I ignore home-made chocolate chunk cookies).
Sometimes I don't need a whole capsule's worth of enzymes. With these little tablets I can gauge the amount I want for the foods I've eaten. It's not a broad spectrum enzyme, but it definitely helps at mealtimes. I'm coming to like them more and more.

Every first aid kit should have arnica gel/cream, arnica tablets and arnica drops. As a former ballerina I have a habit of gliding across the floor ... and bumping into coffee tables, doorknobs, etc. My bruises disappear when arnica is applied, and if you are sensitive to it, you can notice the calming effect of these tablets at such times. They totally work for me, and i keep them in the cabinet at all times.

I just wish someone had told me about this cream when menapause hit. I could have been relieved of a lot of ups and downs and physical shocks. I now keep it around for maintenance whenever it feels like age is winning the battle. A girlfriend even uses it as skin toner, though I'd be watchful of dosages in that case. Anyway, this is the good stuff, as far as I'm concerned.
I'm very happy with this product. I have looked for an easy-to-dissolve B-12 lozenge and this one fills the bill. A friend once gave me the use of hers in an emergency, and they dissolved even better, however this brand is much more affordable than hers. I take two of these with one MegaFolinic when I need a boost. But don't take them right before bedtime, or bedtime might be delayed! This is my third time purchasing them.
