Review: Austrailian Tea Tree Oil


 
 I've never tried Austrailian Tea Tree Oil before and having the chance now to do so has been an interesting experience. Not only did I receive this for review but I also received a '53 Uses for Tea Tree' e-book. When I unscrewed the top from the bottle, I can't say that the smell was a pleasing one but it a strong scent. I never knew that Tea Tree Oil had so many uses! From household cleaning and disinfecting, masks, toners, facial washes, body scrubs more, this product is quite handy! It's a 4 oz bottle that's pretty large and it will def last a long time let alone if you use it daily. You don't really need much of it when using it because it's pretty potent. 

  I did try a receipe from their e-book! I wanted to make a body scrub, a simple one so I chose a 'Replenishing Tea Tree Oil Body Scrub'! Here's what it called for:

  • ½ cup raw brown sugar
  • 8 drops Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil
  • 1 tbsp. raw honey 
  • ¼ cup sesame oil

  Mix it all together and store in a jar. Apply it by scooping some up with your finger tips and rub on face, neck and body. Continue to rub the scrub in for a few minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

  This is what my brown sugar scrub looked like and I soooo wanted to enjoy it but the sesame oil ruined it for me! I will try another recipe later for another scrub with the Austrailian Tea Tree Oil with a pleasant scent and I can't wait to try it with so many other uses for it.

Review: Propresser Garlic Press



  I love garlic and love to put in my spaghetti sauce and anything else to give a kick to my meals. This garlic propresser by Orblue is stainless steel and it's a beauty!

  I was so excited to get to work and try this product out! I peeled my cloves and then put them into the presser. I discovered that if you use more than one large clove, it'll be pretty difficult to mince. At least it was for me! Putting two small sized cloves works well. I tried the presser with the peelings kept on and it made it did make it harder that way for me to press through so I could mince the garlic. So, I prefer them peeled first, makes it easier for me to use. 

  
  This is the finished product showing my minced garlic using the Propresser Garlic Press! It's a great product and the garlic smells delish! The propresser is easy to clean also. Just use some soap and water. In the corners, you'll have a little of the garlic in there so, I used a butterknife to get it out. I'm really happy with this product and recommend it everyone who enjoys their garlic!

Review: Advanced Probiotic by Number One Nutrition




I received Number One Nutrition's Advanced Probiotic for review. 

When I first heard about Probiotics several months ago, it was recommended to me by my Physician because I was taking a strong antibiotic for an illness that I had. The antibiotic I would soon take would kill the good bacteria as well as the bad. So, she recommended that I take a Probiotic especially while on the medication that was being prescribed for me. So, that's when I was introduced to Probiotics.



Probiotics are good bacteria that perform a very important role in our digestive, metabolic and immune system. They produce enzymes that break down the food we eat, regulate vitamin intake, and convert sugars to the essential nutrients our bodies need.

You take 2 capsule pills daily. A bottle of 60 pills will last you a month. I think once I'm done with this bottle, I'm going to keep on taking these. They're a a better deal than some other Probiotics which can cost a lot more and you wouldn't get nearly as many. Also, some probiotics you have to take more than 2 capsules a day so you would go through them a lot quicker.

I feel that the Number One Nutrition Advanced Probiotic has helped me feel a little bit more 'regular'. 

If you've experienced the following, you may have a low amount of probiotics in your system.

- Digestive problems
- Constipation
- Auto Immune Disorders
- GI Inflammation
- Fatigue
- Irritability


Our Gastrointestinal Tract (GI) is home to 80% of our immune system!  That´s why it is so important to take a good Probiotic Supplement!

  Taking the Advanced Probiotic can help:
  

- Drastically improve your digestive health
- Balance your intestinal flora
- Improve your mood
- Break down allergy causing proteins
- Accelerate your fat loss

Review: Graze

 

Graze is a snack company providing 4 perfectly portioned size snacks in each box to their subscribers. When you sign up, you can view all of their snacks and rate them.

 I'm going to share with you the ones that I got in my first box!

Up first is the 'Scrumptious Blueberry Swirl'. I'm not a fan of yogurt raisins but I think with the cranberries, blueberries and blackcurrants all together just made some good happen in this lil box!

Next, was the 'Brownie Flapjack'! Oh. My. Word. Delicious!! It was delightful with the oats and brownie pieces together! I ate them slowly because I knew once these 3 lil guys were gone, that I wouldn't see them for a while! :) Regular granola bars simply don't compare imo. These were soft and quite yummy! My favorite from this box indeed! I put this one as 'LOVE' when rated.


 

The third snack in my box was the 'Salted Fudge & Peanut Cookie'. This one I liked the least out of the box. I didn't like the chocolate cookies and fudge. I thought I would've liked those but I really didn't care too much for them. Now, the peanuts I thought were good.

 Last and final snack in the box was the 'Texas Corn Salsa'. I really enjoyed this pack! I loved all the corn goodies and the salsa almonds. Definitely in my top 2 for this box! I rated this of course, as 'LOVE'.


I love my snacks and healthy ones for that...what can I say?! :) A great thing about Graze is that they DO have a referral program! When you refer someone, you get $1 off your next box!

 You can get your 1st 5th delicious, Graze wholesome snack boxes for free!! If you want to cancel after the 1st free box, you can do that if you desire. Use my link to get your nom nom on! .
