I first became interested in natural medicine at the age of 18. As a teenager, I experienced many severe health problems such as severe acne, depression, anxiety, low energy, and hypoglycemia (pre-diabetes). As a last resort, I went to see a Naturopathic physician. While skeptical at first, having been brought up on prescription drugs and a Standard American Diet (SAD), I decided to try the changes suggested by the Naturopath. I switched to a whole foods diet, cut out dairy products, started taking vitamins and other supplements, and began exercising and practicing meditation. Within a year, most of my health problems were gone. I have since studied more about natural medicine and tried hundreds of health products. My favorite book is "Healing With Whole Foods" by Paul Pitchford. I have found that a simple, whole-foods based diet, along with some key supplements, exercise, and stress reduction is a great recipe for health. May others find the key to good health, too!
Corny, I know, but this product makes me think of those ridiculous chia pet commercials. The product itself is high quality, as I have come to expect from Bob's Red Mill. The seeds were fresh and lasted several months in my refrigeration. With all of Chia's health benefits, from it's Omega 3 profile, to fiber, to vitamins, it is truly one of the powerhouse superfoods available today. I would order this product again and enjoy in smoothies or oatmeal.
I got this product for free. I'm not especially interested in lip balm flavor, but this one seems to be pretty good. The vanilla flavor is subtle and my lips stay moisturised during the day. As for whether this is "completely kissable", I'll leave review of that item to others. Solid lip balm and recommended for the price.

I purchased this product to try a different toothpaste from Jason Natural. I prefer this type to the peppermint Powersmile. This toothpaste is a clear gel that is quite light. I experienced some problems with irritation and sensitivity with other natural toothpastes. This product doesn't irritate my teeth and leaves me with a cool taste in my mouth. It seems to work well as an overall toothpaste, although I haven't noticed any whitening effects. I will purchase again.
I purchased these lentils to be used in indian dishes and for lentil soup. The lentils were fresh and tasted quite good when cooked in soup or with rice and spices. I trust that Bob's Red Mill is a quality brand. If I'm looking for red lentils, I will certainly buy this product again.
This is a nice blend of cinammon, nutmeg, and ginger, 3 anti-inflammatory herbs that also happen to taste great in drinks or in baked goods. You can also use this product in ciders, pancakes, waffles, or cookies. It's a nice, warming blend that works in many different recipes.
I bought this product to add to rice and bean dishes. The product is very fresh and vibrant. It has a strong red color and delicate, spicy flavor. I don't need to use too much of the paprika in dishes, so I expect this jar to last a long time. A great value and good product to add to your spice cabinet.
I got this product as a free sample in the "freebies" category. I have been switching more and more to biodegradable based cleaning and laundry products. It is very sad to me that people use harsh chemicals to clean their homes and clothes when all those chemicals wash off into the water supply. It seems like such a waste. Products like this are a good alternative. This soup is biodegradable and won't damage the environment. I just wonder what would happen if everyone switched to more environmentally friendly cleaning products. It seems like the world would be much better off for it.
I purchased this product to use in the shower. The first thing I noticed when I received my iherb order was the amazing smell. The entire box smelled like pina coladas. The soap itself is of high quality, what you would expect from Nubian Heritage. And the price was also right in line. You can't get much more for less than $4. I'm just disappointed this product is now discontinued. I will use other Nubian Heritage products in the future.
I found this to be a solid bone building product overall, with a high price compared to others. The main downside of this product is the price. I don't doubt that this is a high quality product. While algae based calcium supplements are certainly worthwhile, I think there are cheaper alternatives such as coral calcium powder or MCHC bone building supplements that are just as effective and much cheaper. I bought this product on sale and wouldn't pay full price as I don't think the quality is significantly better than other products.

I started using this conditioner due to dry, thinning hair. After about a month of use, I notice my hair has looked healthier than before. It has a pleasant and subtle scent, too.
