Foxbrim Youthful Radiance Eye Cream with Vitamin C + E + Aloe + Green Tea for Dark Circles and Puffiness Review



I love trying out eye creams for my dark under eye circles so when I saw Foxbrim had this product available to try out I totally jumped on it. My sleep patterns are terrible! I think this has to be the one thing affecting my eyes. I can never get that perfect amount of sleep so yeah I always look tired.

Foxbrim is recognizable due to their ultra cute fox logo on their products. I think it's a really nice touch and sets them apart in my beauty products. The eye cream bottle itself fits perfectly in my hand.

I like the fact that there is a pump on the top to distribute the cream easily. I hate taking too much of a product and then I have to wipe the rest off on a tissue wasting it. This bottle is a little smaller than my other bottle of eye cream so I wonder just how long this will last me. You don't have to use too much though when applying it.

The cream itself is just a white regular looking cream. My other eye product is a little more springy and airy in texture. This cream contains many wonderful things like Aloe, Jojoba Oil, Grape seed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Green Tea, Vitamin C + E, Tamanu Oil and many more ingredients. It absorbs into the skin quickly and feels soothing on application. There are no silicones, parabens, additives or fillers used. Only natural and organic ingredients blended with the most sensitive of skin types in mind.

I have noticed a difference in the skin under my eyes within using it for a week. I honestly feel like it made me look more refreshed in the mornings. I always apply it at night before bed and in the mornings. I actually like the compact size and it would be perfect to take along in my purse if I need a quick pick me up for my skin. I'm very satisfied with this product and would recommend it. #Foxbrim

Honeycat Cosmetics Bath and Body Treats for Women Review + giveaway


I got the awesome opportunity to try out these products from HoneyCat Cosmetics. I have seen their products around so I knew it was popular amongst the ladies. Their website is pretty much easy to navigate and straightforward. All of their products are centered around cats. It's absolutely adorable. I love the mix with pink and black which gives it a classy yet sexy playful feel. I also love how their products aren't tested on animals. Meow!


So I decided to try the Honeycat Rub My Tummy Honey & Buttermilk Body Cream first. The smell is extremely intoxicating. If it wasn't just for cosmetic use I swear it would be edible from the goodness of that scent. This is probably the best body cream/lotion I have ever smelled. I always rub this on my body right after a shower and I smell delectable. It makes my skin super soft and makes me feel just fabulous. This is probably my favorite product out of all of them and if you can only afford to get one thing...this would be it. You can buy this product here: http://www.honeycatcosmetics.com/cart/item_22/Rub-My-Tummy-Hand-Body-Cream.htm


This is the Vanilla Butter Cream Grooming Bar. I just got a kick out of the soap bar being called a grooming bar. It's so cute how they keep the feline theme so prevalent. I think it's a big thing that separates their products from other beauty products. They would just make perfect gifts because of it. I've been using the grooming bar exclusively in the shower now and it pretty much carries the same sweet scent that the body cream does. It's just really nice.You can buy this here: http://www.honeycatcosmetics.com/cart/item_13/Vanilla-Cream-Grooming-Bar.htm


Isn't this shower gel bottle just adorable? It's called the Cat-Bernet Sauvignon. I actually prefer soap bars over shower gels but I decided to give this a go. It's got like a grape type of scent to it. I think I prefer the soap bar scent over this one but that's not to say this one doesn't smell nice. I think I am just more into warm type cookie smells. I would describe this one as a more "grown up" type of scent and the other one a bit more "innocent" smelling. The bottle looks really cute in my shower though and I will definitely keep using it.  You can purchase this product here: http://www.honeycatcosmetics.com/cart/item_36/Cat-Bernet-Sauvignon.htm

This is the I'm In Heat Whisker Slickers lip balm. It's  cinnamon and ginger flavored with an extra bit of spice. It's totally free of animal products and petroleum. I actually wish this lip balm was a little more solidified. I know it's hard to probably get just the right consistency when you are working with natural products. I wish there was more of a stronger cinnamon or honey presence in this one. It actually kind of felt and tasted minty to me. I really would just like to see the buttermilk , vanilla and honey come out with this one just like the body cream. You can buy this product here: http://www.honeycatcosmetics.com/cart/item_20/Im-In-Heat-Whisker-Slickers.htm

This container is so cute. I really applaud the person who is thinking of all these awesome packaging ideas because it's ingenious. I didn't open this one up because I do not have a bath so I'm passing this onto a family member to try out. This is the Chick Of The Sea Foaming Bath Crystals. Open this can of delicious muscle soothing, chocolate, amaretto and mint bath crystals. The crystals themselves are pink in color and it's a one time use tin. You can purchase this product here: http://www.honeycatcosmetics.com/cart/item_23/Chick-Of-The-Sea-Foaming-Bath-Crystals.htm

I really enjoyed trying everything out and I can see that these products would definitely make a bunch of special ladies in your life very happy. They are too cute not to think about when you have to buy someone a gift that is thoughtful and original.

BustBomb all natural breast enlargement formula capsules and cream



I got the opportunity to try out two very different products than what I am used to. I like to try almost anything and this is one of those times where I really was intrigued. A product that claimed to enlarge the breast size naturally. It sounded too good to be true.

There are a bunch of herbs women take to try to enlarge their breasts and some may have success while others don't.


The pills are very easy to swallow and have a taste of coffee to me. I think that might be the Dong Quai in it. There are quite a few ingredients in here. There's Saw Palmetto Berries, Fenugreek Seed, Fennel Seed, Mexican Wild Yam, Blessed Thistle, L-Tyrosine, Atlantic Kelp, Damiana, Dong Quai and Mother's Wort. You take three capsules daily which is one with each meal.


Here's how the cream looks like. It has progesterone in it. I found that it made my skin very soft when applied. It does have a very peculiar scent to it that I really don't care for so I try to put it on like an hour before I decide to shower. To me, while taking both products I feel like I probably just got a little bit firmer and my skin just feels softer. I have not noticed any major differences at all and have been taking both items religiously as directed. I have read you need to be taking the product for about three months but to expect something to happen quickly will be impossible.

I can tell you that it was simple to follow the directions and the product came quickly. I just can't vouch for it making my breasts larger than they already are. I'm a little disappointed but I guess I have to keep going with it to know for sure where it might take me. I would also like to note that the cream is paraben-free.#bustbomb

Ozeri OW05A Prestige Electric Wine Bottle Opener with Aerating Pourer and Foil Cutter


I got the opportunity to try this electric wine opener from Ozeri. I really can't express how happy I am with all of their products. They always push out quality ultra modern pieces that deliver.


It comes with a few different pieces. There is a simple charging base so that you can put your wine opener in there and plug it in the wall so you don't have to deal with batteries. It also comes with a foil cutter and an aerating pourer. Everything looks really sleek in black and chrome accents.
The wine opener has an ergonomic rubberized soft grip so you can handle it comfortably and easily. 

You will notice a blinking red light for when the device is charging. You should probably just let it charge for a couple of hours before using. 

I decided to buy a new bottle of wine to test this one out. It's a pretty big bottle. 


All you have to do is put the wine opener over the top of the cork and then push the down button for the corkscrew to go into it. Once it's all the way in you just press the up button and it will pull out the cork. It did take me a few times to get it out so it won't be happening in one pass. It's a nice little device for sure and can be helpful. It also seems to be priced right.

Petgroomer Deshedding Tool for Cats and small animals



I got to try out this DeShedding Tool from Pets and more. I have two cats who shed a bunch and wanted to see if I could find something smaller to use. I do own a Furminator but yeah it's a little bigger than what I would prefer for my cats because I actually purchased it for a dog I had a few years back.


Here goes the two perpetrators with the fur. There's Rusty to the left and Peeper to the right. They quite liked rubbing up on the Pet Groomer tool.


So this is what I do because I don't like to spring it on them. They might get really spooked and run off.


There's my furminator to the right. That thing was so expensive. I just had it from years prior to owning an American Eskimo that needed to be groomed constantly so it's what I have been using on my cats. It works really well but it's bigger than what I need for them.


I think that this deshedding tool is very easy to handle. It's small and lightweight. I also like the purple and black colors together. The tool itself has a grey eject button at the top there so you can push the button and hair will push out off the head of the tool. This is really important to me because I always have to hold my cats down with my left hand and just have my right hand holding the tool. Grooming cats can be really tough to do because they usually don't like it.


As you can see the tool took out a lot of fur from them both. Peeper actually booked it upstairs so she isn't in the pictures. She is the cat that gives me the most trouble with grooming. I'm really impressed at what this tool did. It's a great value and it gets the job done properly. #Cats

Hill's Ideal Balance Dog Food Sampling from Crowdtap


I got the opportunity to try Idea Balance dog food from Hill's. I do not personally own a dog but my boyfriend's mom does so I always try to get what I can to try with her. She has a wonderful English Setter named Sophie with a great appetite for many different things.


Sophie and her mom was thrilled with the new retractable pet leash that came with the sampling. She had a red one that was just all chewed up from her. Sophie just couldn't wait to try the delicious Soft-Baked Naturals with Duck & Pumpkin. We decided to give her a treat before eating lunch.



She loved it and was anxiously awaiting for her lunch which would be the Grain Free Braised Salmon Recipe Wet Food mixed with the Grain Free Natural Chicken and Potato Recipe Dry Food.

So I mixed half the can of wet food and a cup of dry food for her. As you can see one of the cats was interested in the food as well while I was preparing it.


Sophie gobbled it up quickly and seemed to love it. I've seen her eat many times and she will usually pick out all the wet food first but she ate everything together with no problem.


I gave her another treat after her meal and she was nice and full. She had a nice little nap after everything.


I really have not seen anything like this before. The dog food itself has a velcro strip so you can seal it easily. I really like that idea.

All in all, this was such a fun sampling. I love getting samplings that are for the pets in the family. It's very exciting to see their reactions and find out new products that they would love. Thanks to Crowdtap and Hill's for letting me try out all these wonderful pet products. We're very happy with everything and so is Sophie. We'll be sure to use the wonderful coupons that were included to purchase more of these products in the future. #Crowdtap #IdealBalance #PetFoodCrew

Natural Stacks BioCreatine Complex for Increased Cognition and Lean Muscle Gains Review



I got the opportunity to try out these BioCreatine Complex pills from Natural Stacks. It's something I have heard about before but never really thought to use. We need to know what Creatine is and does first beforehand.

Creatine is used to supply energy to your muscles. Creatine supplements are primarily used by people looking to build muscle (although it’s used for strength/performance as well).
Does creatine itself actually build muscle? No. That’s not how it works.
During exercise that requires short bursts of energy (like weight training, sprinting, etc.), the primary source of energy is Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
The thing is, ATP is in limited supply and it depletes rather rapidly. This of course is where creatine comes in, as it’s used to replenish the amount of ATP available.
So, in plain English, creatine increases the energy your muscles have.
This then increases the amount of work your muscles are capable of doing, which then increases what you’re capable of doing during your workouts (meaning lifting more weight and/or doing more reps).
The process of gradually increasing the amount of weight you lift and/or the number of reps you lift it for is known as progressive overload, and it’s the #1 weight training requirement for building muscle.
What creatine does is directly assist in making this process take place. Which means, in the end, creatine supplements help build muscle.

There is also Himalayan Pink Salt and Fenugreek extract in these pills. Himalayan Pink Salt is a pure, hand-mined salt that is derived from ancient sea salt deposits, and it is believed to be the purest form of salt available. By having this salt in the formula it's able to restore the body's sodium levels and maximize absorption. Fenugreek will also help to improve the creatine uptake while taking the pills.


 I have been working out here and there and I decided to let my boyfriend try them too since he works out more regularly as well. A lot of directions on powder form of creatine will say to take them after working out. I wouldn't recommend that. It can take about 1 hour for the creatine to be absorbed into the bloodstream - and from that point you have about 1.5 hours to use the creatine or lose it. Since creatine supplies us with energy when working out - it is important we have creatine available during our workout.

The pills are very easy to swallow just like all the Natural Stacks pills. You won't have to deal with any nasty taste or after taste. That's why I prefer the pills over the powder form. There has been some research done saying that taking creatine on your off days is a good idea. That's up to you so you would have to test that theory out for yourself.

You definitely can feel a nice burst of energy to push yourself harder with your workouts if you follow my direction and take it an hour before. I can tell you how hard it is to have the energy to work out and finish your reps when you are not at peak physical shape. This is just nice to use to help you out with that.

I've seen cheaper creatine pills out on the market but I have also compared both supplement fact labels in the back. With Natural Stacks BioCreatine Complex you will get more mg of the BEST most optimal creatine per serving. You also have the added benefit of the himalayan pink salt and fenugreek extract to help your muscles absorb it better which other pills can't offer you at their lower price. I would definitely recommend you to go with something that's higher quality so you can actually see and feel a difference. #naturalstacks

Lavender Essential Oil 1 Oz - 100% Pure Undiluted Premium Therapeutic Grade Natural Aromatherapy Essential Oil



I got the opportunity to try out this Lavender essential oil from Elite Gold Solutions. The size of it is 1 ounce. They use a process called Super Critical Steam Extraction (Lavandula Officinalis)to make it.
It actually came at the most perfect time because I was trying out another product and I was looking forward to mixing the two together. Before I get into what I used it for I would like to give a little information on Lavender itself.



The lavender plant is a small aromatic evergreen shrub of the mint family, with narrow leaves and bluish-purple flowers. Lavender has been widely used in perfumery and medicine since ancient times. It's quite striking and beautiful when you see it all bunched up together like this. It's also nice to decorate with or even grow outside your home. It will definitely give your porch a wonderful scent I am sure.  There's a ton of uses for lavender oil itself.


1- Skin irritations: Therapeutic-grade Lavender oil has been excellent in soothing and healing minor skin irritations. As long as the skin is not broken or raw, Lavender can be used to bring healing and soothing comfort to minor skin irritations.

2- Cure for Ringworm: It's a great, natural therapy for a minor ringworm infection, without the fear of any man-made chemicals touching your skin.

3- Acne treatments: Because acne is often caused by skin oils and bacteria, the antiseptic properties of Lavender can be very effective at managing acne. However, it should be tested on small areas and even diluted for some skin types as it can be a little irritating for very sensitive skin types.

4- Tension / massage: Lavender oil can also be used to help relieve tension in sore and bruised muscles. It can be used effectively to bring relief and relaxation for a muscle massage.

5- Other skin blemishes: Minor rashes, dryness and other skin irritations can be effectively treated with therapeutic-grade Lavender oil.

6- Calming for acute anxiety  By utilizing essential Lavender oil into the post-anxiety relief process and re-programming, one can create stronger, calming memories of the aromas of Lavender while learning to get out of the triggering circumstance and taking control of the situation.

7- Helping little ones prepare for bed: Many children can benefit from a calm, predictable routine at a consistent time each night. When Lavender oil is added to the regimen, it can be even more effective. Rub a few drops of oil on the soles of the little one's feet. We have even put a few drops on our fingers and touched the under-side of their noses so they would smell it and develop a calming routine with a familiar smell. And, since the smell center of the brain is very close to the memory center, this kind of pattern can produce strong, peaceful memories for little ones as they grow older.

8- Winding down before bed as an adult or assisting with sleep disorders - Many adults suffer from sleep disturbances and sleep disorders that range from mild to severe. At many levels, lavender oils and diffusing lavender into the room can help promote calm, restful nights and actually help a person regain some life energy by gaining more restful sleep. Some have used this inside of their CPAP mask and have reported increased sleep effectiveness of up to 35% more sleep per night.

9- Soothing and cleansing common cuts – In World War I, René Gattefossé experimented on soldiers in military hospitals by using Lavender and other antiseptic essential oils with quite positive results. This same oil can be used to help heal minor cuts by safely killing germs that prevent normal healing.

10- Bringing relief to bruised areas – try gently rubbing a few drops of Lavender oil around and on sore, bruised areas to promote blood flow, healing and relief for the tenderness and pain.

11- Soothing minor burns – just as René Gattefossé accidentally discovered the anti-scarring and healing effects of Lavender on a laboratory burn, you can use a few drops on minor burns that are caused from things such as small cooking burns or burns caused by a craft iron or glue gun.

12 - Relief for insect bites – rub a few drops on bee sting areas and other insect bites to speed up the healing and bring instant relief to the burning, itching and irritations of insect bites such as mosquitoes.

13 - Insect repellant that is safe without side effects- Perhaps you have heard of all the dangers of using man-made insect repellents and the toxicity / build up of these kinds of chemicals in the world. Also, there are all kinds of home-remedy type insect repellents or oils that just don't seem to do the trick. Lavender oil is a unique insect repellant that is safe, effective and has no side effects (except positively balancing the mood and stabilizing mental states). Before reaching for the next can of over-the-counter bug spray, try essential Lavender oil.

14 - Safely moisturizing chapped lips – Only pure therapeutic-grade Lavender oil should be considered safe for ingesting or use on skin areas. Be sure your bottle does not say “for external use only” as it is not pure therapeutic-grade and is not worth the money spent on it. Apply as needed to areas of chapped lips in the dry winter season to relieve dry, burning, chapped lips and to promote healing and moisturizing effects.

15 – Winter chapped hands - Lavender oil can triple as a bactericide, moisturizer and reliever of pain, itching and dryness caused by dry, cold winter conditions. Try a few drops as needed and rub into the chapped ares of the fingers and hands.

16 - Eczema relief and dermatitis - Using Lavender oils alone or with other essential oils that are good for the skin can help bring relief to the dryness or the inflammation caused by eczema and dermatitis. Many children have eczema patches as well and eventually grow out of them. Using Lavender oil is safe and effective.

17 - Repelling insects and moths – place a few drops on a cotton ball for closets and linen drawers to ward off insects and moths.

18 - Fabric freshener and deodorizer – Place a few drops on cloth or laundry drier sheet to freshen laundry scent and naturally deodorize

19 - Child's resting place - Place a few drops on your child's stuffed animal or pillow to help comfort them at night and to build comforting memories.

20 - Romance and relaxed social settings - Diffuse the lavender oil to set the mood for a nice romantic evening or for a relaxed social event.

21- Can be used in a day spa for diffusing - Lavender is a nice oil for diffusing, cleaning the air, and bringing balance to any atmosphere. Diffusing it in a certain area of your day-spa can really bring a sense of balance and tranquility.

22 - Lavender infused tea and other drinks – Using Lavender in a nice cup of hot tea can help as a nice wind-down drink after dinner or with a decaffeinated tea before bed. It can also be used with a nice Chamomile tea or “Sleepy time” tea before bed or when trying to relax.

23 - Lavender in breads and cooking – Experiment with Lavender oil (digestible kind) in your fruit breads and other dishes. It can provide a wonderful complexity and aromatics to some of your favorite dishes. Try adding a drop or 2 to a few bites before adding it to a complete recipe to be sure you like it first.

24 - Sunburn relief - Lavender drops can be diluted in water to spray over sunburn to promote relief and healing several times a day. Try using Lavender instead of (or alternating with) aloe-vera gel and diluted apple-cider vinegar to help take away the heat and sting of sun-burn.

25 - To settle throat or muscle spasms- Recently, I had some issues with GERD and esophageal spasms. If you ever had esophageal spasms or IBS, it can be very uncomfortable and at times, painful. I decided take a few drops of Lavender oil on the tongue to see if it had similar muscle relaxation effects on the smooth, involuntary muscles of the digestive system. The Lavender oil was very effective in greatly reducing the spasms and bringing relaxation and relief to the constricting muscles in my throat. It must be therapeutic grade that it pure enough for ingestion, however.

26 - Soothing tension and headaches - Sometimes, rubbing a few drops on the temples and / or on the back of the neck or trapezius muscles can really help bring relief and reduce the headaches caused by tension. Try this before reaching for that bottle of ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

27 - Sinusitis and allergy flare-ups - Both Lavender and Peppermint oil can be very effective for helping to reduce the flare ups from allergies and sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus linings). Place a few drops near the affected areas, nasal passages, temples, forehead, back of the neck, between the eyes (but certainly not in the eyes) – and test some near your eyes to make sure the vapors are not too intense for your eyes as it can irritate or cause the eyes to water a bit.

28 - Great for a relaxing bath oil – sometimes you need to ramp up the relaxing effects of Lavender and diffusing and rubbing it topically don't do the complete trick. Try adding several drops to a warm, relaxing bath, while playing some soft music and lighting some nice candles. A little extra time on those days when you really need a break after work or from the kids can really bring you back to a sense of normalcy.

29 - Relief with heart palpitationsLavender oil, being a natural tonic and sedative, can also be inhaled in pure form to help with heart palpitations and a rapid heart beat. Practice making calm and quiet surroundings and inhaling Lavender oils when your heart is racing. Be sure to stay with your doctor's advice if you have a condition or are on medications.

30 – Calmness before an exam - Inhale some drops of Lavender before and during a test if permitted to help an older student reset balance to mind and emotions for testing anxieties. Using the Lavender lightly during study times can also help produce calm memories when thinking through particular topics, which can carry over to the testing scenario.

31 – Before a presentation or job interview - You can inhale some Lavender aroma and even put a drop or two under the nasal passages to bring calmness and balance to the mind and emotions before a presentation before peers, colleagues or before a big job interview.

32 – Water fountain or aromatherapy fountain - Placing a few drops of Lavender in your fountain can kill bacteria and promote a nice, balanced, calm atmosphere while keeping the water fresh and free of microbes.

33 – Reducing scar tissue - Be sure to consistently add Lavender oil to areas of skin that are wounded and beginning to heal to help reduce scarring and promote healing, while also experience the antiseptic properties of the oil.

34 – Dry eyes and tear ducts – Do not place Lavender in the eyes. However, you can put a drop or 2 near the bridge of the nose to promote your lacrimal glands to produce tears.

35- Motion Sickness – Experiment with the locations of application, but Lavender can be used to help alleviate symptoms of minor motion sickness. It is not intended to prevent motion sickness on a long cruise or where a stronger medicine may be needed. However, it can be effective in relieving symptoms of the onset of motion sickness.

36 – Bath salts - Not only can Lavender be used by the drop in a relaxing bath, but it can also be mixed with pure bath salts and wrapped up to use later or for a gift for a friend or family member.

37- Ear aches - Sometimes, adults and children get ear aches. Using a warm compress, add a few drops of Lavender oil to the warm, wet compress and massage the areas around and behind the ears, and the sides of the neck under the jaw-line, following the path starting behind the ear lobes. This can help relieve and reduce inflammation around the Eustachian tubes that drains the ears to the throat.

38 – Menstrual cramp relief - Using very warm compresses, also apply Lavender oils around the abdomen while inhaling the diffuse vapors to help calm and relax the muscles, mind and body for less severe cramping.

39 - Respiratory infections - Lavender can be used in a vaporizer to help kill germs and promote healing due to respiratory infections.

40 - Soothe a cough or sore throat - Lavender oil's natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and calming effects can help soothe a cough or sore throat due to cough or minor infection. Having some Lavender around for the cold season can bring a lot of safe relief for little ones as well by inhalation or dabbing some drops around the nasal passages and massaging gently around the neck and throat area.

41 - Relief of minor asthmatic and bronchial spasms – Many people suffer from minor asthmatic and acute bronchial spasms leading to some bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchial tubes) from pollens, bacteria and other allergens or pathogens. Lavender oil diffusing, inhaling, and rubbing on the nasal passages and around the chest areas has provided relief for minor asthmatic symptoms and bronchial spasms for some.

42 - Hair loss and re-growth for alopecia - Alopecia areata is an auto-immune dysfunction where the hair falls out, often in clumps or patches. In one study documented by the University of Maryland Medical Center, 86 alopecia areata patients went through a split test. Both subjects massaged the scalp daily for 7 months, where as only half used essential lavender oil during the massage. The experimental group that used Lavender oil reported significant hair re-growth over the control group that simply used scalp massage alone.

43 – Reduce agitation in dementia patients - Some studies have shown that aromatherapy and other Lavender oil use can help reduce agitation for aging patients who experience agitation and irritability due to dementia.

44 – Other skin fungal infections like candidiasis – Fungal infections are common in humans. Skin infections caused by fungus like candidiasis have responded very well in many cases and can be treated with topical applications of pure Lavender oil.

45 - Irritation from shingles – Adult onset of shingles due to the Herpes Zoster virus can be quite irritating and downright painful. Some people have used Lavender oil to alleviate the pain, irritation and itching caused by shingles. Also, because shingles can often be associated with life stressors, Lavender can help with that too.

46 – Scabies infections – Scabies has been identified by the WHO (World Health Organization) as a water-borne parasite / illness that can also be transmitted by skin contact from infected persons. Some natural medicinal doctors (NMDs) have used therapeutic-grade Lavender oils and baths in conjunction with other oils such as tea tree oil to effectively kill these parasites that burrow under the skin, lay eggs, and cause allergic irritations and dermatitis. Not only can the Lavender oil kill the parasites, but it can bring relief to the skin irritations.

47 – Overactive nervous system – Sometimes, other voluntary and involuntary muscle spasms can be treated well with Lavender oil massaged on or near the location of the muscle spasms caused by an over-active nerve or nervous system.

48 – After surgery pain relief – Although there have been more reported testimonials, one study done on biopsy patients (reported at the University of Maryland Medical Center) for after surgery pain relief showed significant pain decrease in patients who received oxygen with Lavender aromatherapy versus those who just received oxygen without aromatherapy in post-operative scenarios.

49 – Improve concentration – Because of its ability to stabilize mood, reduce anxieties, and help calm the nervous system, Lavender has been reported by many to help improve the ability to concentrate by reducing other symptoms that can distract thought and the ability to focus.

50 – Deodorants – Pure therapeutic grade Lavender oil can be used as a body deodorant because it kills bacteria that can cause body odors and can also be used with other applications as natural body deodorants. Some ancient civilizations used essential oils for bathing and beautification / perfuming processes weeks and months before weddings and other ceremonies. In addition to its ability to kill odor-causing bacteria, Lavender also adds a delightful light, clear, fragrant floral aroma.


As you can see there are a ton of uses for it. It's just a one bottle miracle for it all.


I really liked the fact that it had this wonderful drip dropper. It makes it easier for me to measure out. So like I mentioned before I wanted to use this for something else I was reviewing at the time. I had received a bottle of Soap Nuts laundry detergent. When I opened up the Soap Nuts I noticed a peculiar smell that I wasn't exactly thrilled with. I decided to use this lavender oil in my soap nuts liquid.

 They are like two peas in a pod. I put like 10 drops of the lavender oil into the soap nuts and shook  it to mix well. My clothing smelled so nice after I finished my hand wash.

I also used it on the flooring around my cat's litter box. I wanted it to smell nice and calming when I walked into the bathroom. I placed some drops on the bath mat next to it too.


The space is positively wonderful now. I also decided to sprinkle some droplets around the carpets in the living room and entry room. It really makes a nice difference instead of using harsh aerosol sprays. #bestlavender
