Concentrated Lemon Essential Oil Goes A Long Way

Lift Care Concentrated Lemon Oil.Extra Strength Lemon Oil from Lift Care is very concentrated. They say it is 5x Extra Strength.

All I know is that a little is all it takes. This is a fair sized 4 oz bottle and I have been using it in my kitchen for a few weeks, and I still have more than half of it left.

I have been putting some in my dish washing water, and have a spray bottle with lemon oil and some vinegar for spraying the counters. Both have natural sanitizing properties so it is really good to use in the kitchen.

You can use the lemon oil in homemade soaps too. Or in diffusers. It smells wonderful. A drop in the laundry can make your clothes smell good too.

A couple of drops in a corner can make the whole room smell nice for quite a while.

Lemon Oil is supposed to be good for other things, like cleaning your skin, and even removing stains. Rinsing your hair with it can help with scalp issues, and make your hair smell nice.

Lemon Oil Uses.This graphic from Organic Facts lists a few different uses. I haven’t tried it for anything but cleaning, sanitizing, and making things smell good. I suppose just having it in the air can help if you have asthma.

In any case I like this Lemon Oil.

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts Review

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts.The Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts are really wonderful to put in the water when soaking in a hot bathtub.

The salts contain more than 26 essential minerals that are good for the skin and body.

The minerals in these bath salts can help provide relief for Psoriasis, Eczema, and Arthritis symptoms.

Soaking in them is definitely good for feet that have painful bunions and ganglion cysts. I have both those problems, as well as arthritis that makes my joints hurt really bad sometimes. Soaking in a hot tub with Dead Sea Salts helped more than with Epsom salts, which is not really surprising as dead sea salts have more minerals.

Soaking in them also makes your skin feel really great.

These salts also come in a resealable pouch, that is easy to open, and reseal. You get quite a bit of them. That one pouch should last me a month or so (depending on often I want to soak, ya know).

Contains no additives, colors, or scents.  The salts are fine grained and they do dissolve quickly. I had no residue left in the bottom of the bathtub.

You can buy these Dead Sea Bath Salts and on and you can connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. Also check out the Gopure Naturals page on Facebook.

Turmerex™ Turmeric 95% Extract Review

Turmerex™ Turmeric 95% ExtractTurmerex™ is a really good way to get your turmeric/curcumin. It is a professional-grade turmeric supplement standardized to 95% curcuminoids.

That means you get quite a lot of the good stuff in each dose. The bottle says it has 712.5mg of Curcuminoids.

I like that it also has BioPerine® to help you absorb all the curcuminiods.

Curcumin is supposed to do all sorts of good things for the body, like help support the liver and immune system, but if you tried to get enough from eating you might turn into a blimp.

That is one reason I like supplements.

These pills are easy to swallow and though I did have gas a few times after taking them, that might not be the fault of the pills, because the older I get the more likely things are to mess up my digestion, and I did take them at the same time as my other supplements.

I do like that these pills do not have any added artificial ingredients or flavors and they are made in the U.S.

They also come with a 60 day money back guarantee.

Bunion Pads Can Make Your Feet Feel Better

Dr Fredericks Bunion PadsThis 8 piece Bunion Pad & Spacer Kit from Dr. Fredericks is an easy way to help your feet feel better. It has spacers and bunion cushions and some that combine both.

This kit is really great for someone who wears different kinds of shoes on a regular basis.

The bunion cushion didn’t work well when I was wearing my sandals or my tennis shoes, but the spacer did a great job.

The spacer and cushion combo worked really well with the tennis shoes but made my dress shoes fit too tight.

Pictures of the different kinds of bunion pads & spacers in this kit.

There is a spacer for sports wear as well. I didn’t wear that one except to try it out because I’m not involved in any sports and just didn’t really need it. It might work well for hiking.

The spacers hold your toes apart and help align your big toe properly. You wouldn’t think a little thing like that could make much of a difference but it can. Especially if you have to be on your feet for a while.

The cushion can help keep your shoes from rubbing on the bunion.  That can keep the bunion from swelling up when you are walking a lot.

These pads do help! Try them. Your feet will thank you.

Doctor’s Choice Probiotic A Good Choice?

Picture of Doctors Choice Bottles.Probiotics can be very helpful to the digestion.  Especially after you have been sick and had to take antibiotics, because the antibiotics kill the good bacteria as well as the bad.

Other problems can also cause the good bacteria to decrease, so it is a good idea to replace them every so often.  If you really want to know whether or not you need them, there are tests that can be done, but I don’t know anyone that ever actually did that.

The Doctor’s Choice probiotics are easy to swallow and didn’t cause me any problems, which is something that I definitely have to look out for these days. The older I get the more problems eating causes me.  I used to be able to eat just about anything with no trouble but now it seems like everything makes me burp, or give me indigestion, or gas.

Especially pills. Of all kinds. So the fact that these didn’t cause me any problems is a plus.

They have a picture that lists all the things a probiotic should have (or do) and it shows that the Doctor’s Choice Probiotic has all the “must haves”.  (To see the picture large click to go the attachment page then click the picture to enlarge).What a probiotic needs to have.They come with an eBook that has information about nutrition, common digestive ailments, and cleanses, as well as recipes.

They also offer a guarantee:

“100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE – We are so confident you’re going to love your Doctor’s Choice probiotic, If you are not fully satisfied, simply let us know and we will issue a full refund. No questions asked; and you can still keep the E-Book”

Rescue Your Skin With Shea Blossom Remedy Cream

Shea Blossom Remedy Cream.Shea Blossom Remedy Cream is the best moisturizer I have ever used, and it can be used from tresses to toes.

You can use it on your hair to help control frizzies, and it is really great on sun dried skin.

The folks at Terranova® sent me a 4 oz tube.  The tube is bigger than I expected it to be but I have still used a lot of the cream already.

I love this stuff. I especially love the smell. It has a wonderful fruity scent that isn’t overwhelming. I told them I thought they should make a scent…maybe for a diffuser. I was told they are considering it. I hope they do. They do have a perfume but I’m not sure if it is the same scent.

The Remedy Cream is really rich and thick and does a wonderful job of moisturizing. It has 10% Shea Butter and also contains argan, marula, and baobab oils, as well as added protiens and vitamin B5 panthenol.

I have used it on my arms and hands mostly. Those are the driest parts of my body these days, since I have been doing a lot of working out in the yard, and gardening. My hands get really dry.

Besides that since I really love the scent it seems a shame to waste it on parts of my that are too far from my nose.

It doesn’t take that much, as a little bit does go quite a ways. This tube should last me another couple of weeks, at least.

Shea Blossom Remedy Cream.

If you are out in the sun this summer you really should try this cream. It is wonderful.

Monitor Your Blood Oxygen Levels At Home

Fingertip Pulse Oximeter from Areta.If you need to keep track of your blood oxygen saturation levels at home, this little Fingertip Pulse Oximeter from Areta will be real handy.

It comes with a cord so you can hang it around your neck if you want to. It also comes with a little case, so it is protected if you just stick it in your purse or pocket.

It is a really neat little gadget. You just stick your finger in it and turn it on and a few seconds later it tells you your pulse rate, and your blood oxygen saturation levels.

Areta Fingertip Pulse OximeterThe digital numbers are easy to see and it also displays as a graph. You can change the direction of the display if you would rather it show horizontally.

It will automatically turn itself off after 10 seconds of no activity, so you can just take your finger out and it will shut itself off.

It does have batteries with it, and they will last for more than 24 hours of continuous use.

I like this product very much. It can really help ease your worries when/if you are feeling short of breath. You can just check and see if your blood oxygen is really low.

It is a great product to have around if you have problems with breathing, and need, or just want to know, your blood oxygen levels.

It has an alarm you can use to alert you of abnormal readings.

Need A Gluten-Free Barbecue Sauce?

Classic Barbecue Sauce from Mrs. Renfro's.Mrs. Renfro’s Classic Barbecue Sauce is now Gluten-Free!

This barbecue sauce does not have any high fructose corn syrup in it either, and it only has 30 calories per serving (2 Tbsp).

I really like this sauce. It isn’t too spicy, and it didn’t give me indigestion. It has a good tangy taste to it. It should taste good on whatever you want to put it on, especially ribs.

They also have a Chipotle Barbecue Sauce, that says it is medium hot. I can’t eat too much of that one at a time, because it does have a kick to it.  I did like the taste of it, it is just that it is a bit too hot for me.

Chipotle Barbecue Sauce from Mrs. Renfro's.

If you happen to really like Chipotle, they have a corn salsa, and a nacho cheese sauce that contain chipotle too.

I also got to try Mrs. Renfro’s Nacho Cheese Sauce. I love this stuff.  It is really good and is also Gluten-Free.

Mrs. Renfro's Nacho Cheese Sauce.This time I also tried the Peach Salsa. It was really good too, but I didn’t like it as much as I did the Pineapple Salsa that I got to try for my last review.

Mrs. Renfro’s has been around for 75 years (or more now), and they have been making good food ever since.

I’m glad they started changing some of their products to Gluten-Free versions. I only have a mild gluten intolerance but even that can mess you up.

Sanitize Your Trip With A Sanitizing UV Light Wand

UV Sanitizing Wand from MyBioDefense.If you travel a lot, and stay in places that may not be completely sanitary, or just worry about how sanitary your normal environment is, then you should check out this travel wand from MyBioDefense.

This Foldable UV Light Wand from MyBIODefense is a small travel light that produces UV-C light, which is known to kill germs.

It is a perfect size to carry along with you on trips. You can use it to sanitize the bathtub in hotels if you are not absolutely sure if the tub is clean.

It will work on any solid surface, like faucets, toilets, seat back trays, TV remotes, and phones.

It is also good for things that you can’t really clean well with other sanitizers, like your keyboard.

You have to hold it over the surface for a few seconds. The longer the surface is exposed to the light the more sanitized it will be, but they recommend several seconds for most things.  For some things it would take a lot longer. To kill  some molds you would have to expose it to the light for almost a minutes, maybe even longer depending on the type of mold.

You do need to be careful not to expose your eyes or skin to the light, but the wand does have a built in safety feature that turns the light off if you turn the wand sideways.

The wand comes with a cord so you can plug it into a USB slot and use it while it is plugged in, or you can put batteries in it and use it anywhere.

I like it.

Wearing A Jaw Strap At Night Can Prevent Snoring

Anti-Snoring Jaw Strap.This Anti-Snoring Jaw Strap from American Snoring Solutions can help you stop snoring by holding your jaw closed while you sleep.

I can’t say for a fact that this works. I can only say that my husband hasn’t complained about me snoring for the past few days.

He has (in the past) told me that I sometimes snored pretty loud, but that I don’t always snore. I think it must be a matter of how I am sleeping (on my side or back), and whether I’m having any breathing problems. It seems to happen more during allergy season.

This jaw strap might not work for everyone. If you have some medical problem that causes you to snore this might not help.

If you are snoring because your lower jaw drops down out of place when you are asleep, then the strap should fix it.

It does take some getting used to. And you might have to adjust the straps a few times to get them to where they won’t come off at night.

The strap is soft and doesn’t feel bad at all, but getting used to the pressure holding your jaw in place can take a while.

The strap has adjustable velcro strips so the it should fit most people, and it seems to be pretty sturdy.

You can throw it in the washing machine to clean it.
