Just Learning About Essential Oils

So if you know me.  You would know that I am all for modern medicine.  We as a world have had leaps and bounds in medicinal uses and surgeries, practices.   Before you get up in arms though I also believe that herbal remedies and home remedies are also better for some ailments.  I personally, love lemon with honey for sore throat and coughs.  Many of my friends found essential oils when the big halobaloo was going on a few years back with them and some where just down right nasty to us that didn't use them.  The others, respect my decisions, even though I did know the benefits of them.  They have been my go to girls and we share stories all the time about this oil is good for that etc...

I recently was given the opportunity to try three #Newyorkbiology  #EssentialOil. 
 I have never heard of this company before but from what I have tried I am very impressed with their products. The three oils I have received are #pepperment, #lavender, and #tea tree.  
Since I am new to this, I have spend time online finding out how to use them and what they are used for.  Very interesting. 

Each bottle, dark brown glass, comes with a glass eye dropper. I have used the peppermint many times. I get headaches quite a bit so I have mixed this in some lotion I put on my neck and head when I feel a headache coming on. I have used it in hair conditioner, lotion, mineral oil and in a diffuser. It gives an over all calm feeling.
Don't put it on straight though, it burns.. I love the smell.. very fragrant.
With the Tea Tress, I have used it in my laundry to get the musty smell out of my machines. My clothing are also smelling better and cleaner than they have. I love it, reminds me of going to my grandma's house. I have added a couple drops in my electric tart burner and my whole house smelt great and refreshed.
The Lavender I have used in hair conditioner, in a tart burner and lotion for my children at night. I love it. I have been calmer in just a couple days. My children don't like the smell of the oil straight up, so I mixed it in lotion.  My two younger ones love having me rub it on their backs before they go to bed. 
Can't wait to find other uses for it.  

Here is the link for a short picture video I made on youtube for these products .

Review: Sagano Natural Shoe and Room Deodorizer

 I have to state that these are a great deodorizer for the sticky feet smell to both take away and prevent. Put them in your shoes, leave them overnight and next morning your feet with be happy, along with your nose. Now that being said, we have some feet in the house that are WOW!! for these shoes they took some of the odor out but, it is still there, longer time withe the deodorizer is needed or other product like baking soda is added to help. Over all very impressed. I should get these shoe deodorizers for every member in my family this #saganofresh product.

I was really excited to to try the Room Deorderizer since I have a couple rooms that smell, one like a locker room the other, well I will leave that to the imagination ... I gave Sagano Home Odor Eliminator a try. It is made with bamboo and activated charcoal. All I had to do is remove the bag from the packaging and hung it up on a nail in the room the I wanted to freshen up. So much nicer than room spray that just covers up the odor and shoots out chemicals I don't want in my house. It took a couple days but the locker room smell has disappeared. Yeah!!! Now to put in the other room. Might have to buy a second one at full price at

Review: #keliwamuffinpan

I love to cook and bake in the kitchen. Better yet I love it when my children like to join me in the cooking and baking process. I have one child loves to join me and is becoming a good little chief.

 Recently I was able to receive a 12 cup #keliwamuffinpan at a discount in exchange for my honest review. This is exciting because up until now I had a 6 cup and it took forever to make muffins and cupcakes. I love silicone it can withstand a higher cooking temperature without melting all over and cools faster than metal pans. Overall I would recommend this product to everyone who like to bake.

You do need to still coat with a small amount of cooking spray or oil.
 Remember: NO Sharp object on the cook ware.

You can find this product on Amazon: 

I did try logging onto there website but it isn't working.

Review: Lebice

Summer Time Healthy Ice Pop Snack

When it is hot out side there is nothing better than a cold snack.  My kids and myself included love ice pops.  I had the opportunity to receive this product  at a deep discount in exchange for my honest review. 
When we opened the box this is what we found: set of 6 molds, holding tray (I loved this), collapsible funnel (so easy to add mix, no messes YEAH), Cleaning Brush, and instruction manual with three healthy ice pop recipes. You can check the company out here  if you want to see the info on their START tab you need to type "/start" after the address. If you do this you will find an idea book of 50 delicious recipes. 
When looking at the molds, they took me make to when I was a kid.  My mom had a similar looking set, she used to make us ice pops. 

For our ice pops we used: Strawberries, 1 apple, 1 plum, a couple tablespoons of oatmeal, tablespoon of chia seeds (we love those) and Soy Milk (almond milk works great too.) I should have added some Stevia or honey and some vanilla. Maybe next time. 
Your ice pops will be approximately 3 3/4" - 4 inches tall, depending how much mix you add to the mold.  Using a fruit smoothie mix it didn't expand much. 

The mold set are BPA free, dishwasher safe and FDA approved. 
Overall there isn't much to to complain about. The set is not flimsy and very sturdily made.  The tray is my favorite thing about the whole set. Could be made a bit more solidly though. 
The whole idea is nothing new and I can make healthy ice pops using any types of molds. 

You can find this product on here on Amazon:‏‏  (at the time of this posting they are on sale for $8.99)

Review: We Dream vol 2 CD by Ryann Judd

Need a little calm in your house, with your little ones? Not just for babies. Try the new #WeDreamBabySleepCD by Ryan Judd.  You can visit his site and learn more about him and his music at  You can also listen to his music on this site. 

I love listening to acoustic guitar music, it can be very nice to listen to. I have been playing this CD for all of us to listen to. I can't say that it made any of my kids fall asleep, but it did help the calmness factor in the house. 
The ocean sounds in the background helped with the overall feel and sound of the guitar. My children loved the music. Not you typical lullaby songs. The music Ryan Judd uses, actually much better than any of that.It is modern music, slow, calm, beautiful music. There are 8 different songs. This is a CD that I will be playing all the time in my home. The CD has a very simplistic label and the case is a cardboard paper half folded case 

You can find this CD here on Amazon. It is about $12,  (I am NOT  being compensated for any sales) 
I received this CD free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. 

Review: Moody Zook Shoe Deodorizer

We all have and get stinky feet sometimes.  Come on admit it, sometimes there are days when you kick off your shoes and WOW!!!  Right,

When I saw these, shoe deodorizers, from Moody Zook  #getmoody  I was thinking of one member of my family in particular, Yeah all the stink is gone!!. Well, not so fast... Their shoes and feet stink all the time, can't stand it some days. We put these Shoe Deodorizers in their shoes for three nights straight and very little effect on the shoe or the foot odor. I then tried them on my own shoes, they have the normal daily foot smell and the difference was awesome...

The material is thin fabric is the type stiffer thinning you find under some skirts, Can't remember what it is called.  It looks like the edges are sewn together but if you really look at it, they are glued and stamped closed.

So lesson I learned using these Shoe Deodorizers --  on the shoes that have the normal ever day smell, or even a slightly sticky smell these worked fabulously. On the extra stinky, plow you over shoe odor, was not that great.

Review: Cherry Rebel Watermelon Slicer & Server

I received this product at a deep discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Back when I was a child I remember growing up with Melon Slicers and Melon Ballers. I remember all the fun I had making melon balls for summer parties, or just because.

As an adult I always wanted one.  So I finally was ably to get one.  

This #CherryRebel watermelon slicer appealed to me, since I get nothing but complaints about how I cut watermelon. How can I go wrong with this? The cutter is a think piece of wire and the handles can be squeezed together to make large or smaller think slices. Squeeze again to take the cut slice out of the rind. Super easy to clean. The red grip is nice so when my hands are wet they don't slip all over the place. 

The melon baller works easy and nicely too. Works well with cantaloupe and honeydew also.  My children can easily uses these tools also, and they have a great time. The rind cutter I have not used yet so I can't tell how I like it. Over all this is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone.

We had a couple cantelopes and after watching me use the baller and fancy slicer my children have taken over and I haven't been able to use these new kitchen utensils since.  In fact one of my sons has claimed this set as his own,  

You can find this set on Amazon here:
