Win A Cibaderm CBD 5-piece Beauty Kit ($199 value)

cibaderm_1024x1024-e1498476300335.jpg

I Tried the 5-Piece Cibaderm CBD Beauty Kit and you can too!

Hubby and I are big fans of Cibaderm CBD products, as well as all CBD products. These products are made from hemp and contain little to no THC, so are legal in all 50 states. Applied topically, CBD can help your skin as an anti-inflammatory agent that stops redness and itching, and since topical products do reach your bloodstream, you may see some internal benefits, such as less pain and better sleep.

I have eczema and hubby has psoriasis, so we are always on the lookout for products that keep our skin moisturized and calm, without feeling heavy. Cibaderm CBD delivers!

The scent is a light eucalyptus mint, and the products are thin in consistency and almost a green color. I would be careful with the shampoo and conditioner on bleached or blond hair, as some folks say it left a greenish tinge. I can't speak to that!

Our experience with these products has been great. They smell nice, work well, and our skin and hair are happy.

Now you can enter to win one of these Cibaderm 5-piece CBD Beauty Kits! Enter below. Winner will be announced 7/4/17!

And if you want to order a kit, or any products from US Hemp, use the code wearehemp and receive 10% off your order.

Deozein Natural Deodorant Review and Giveaway

DSC_1383-e1493496092388.jpg

Deozein Natural Deodorant Actually Works!

I don't know about you, but I like to use deodorant. Given the fact that I live in NYC, where there are many warm bodies packed into small spaces, body odor is an issue. I figure that if I hate smelling other people's funk, nobody needs to be smelling mine.

Basically, underarm odor does not come from sweat itself. It comes from bacteria, so if you can manage to stop or slow down the bacteria from growing in the first place, you will not smell. This means that the best time to put on any deodorant is right after you bathe.

Most deodorants either work by masking the body odor with perfume (Old Spice, for example), or by adding an aluminum-based antiperspirant, which closes your sweat glands. Neither of these seems ideal.

Over the past few decades, I have tried many natural deodorant products, none of which has ever worked. I tried crystals, pastes, Tom's of Maine, and others. So when the folks at Source Vital Apothecary contacted me about reviewing their Deozein Natural Deodorant product, I was hesitant.

"Why bother?," I thought. "They never work!"

Bdeozein zestut then I read some reviews, and took a look at the product page. Deozein is made from:

  • Mineral Salts – Cleansing, purifying
  • Algae extract – Remineralizing, purifying, cleansing
  • Aloe Vera extract – Soothing, calming
  • Lavandin essential oil – Soothing, light herbal scent
  • Patchouli essential oil – Soothing, calming, earthy smell
  • Sage Spanish essential oil – Deodorant
  • Tea Tree essential oil – Purifying, cleansing
  • Cajeput essential oil – Purifying, cleansing you would
  • Lemon essential oil – Cleansing, softening, deodorant
  • Pine essential oil – Purifying, cleansing

And Deozein Zest has the same basic ingredients, with a minty citrus scent (I prefer Zest).

The mineral salts and algae extract have strong antibacterial properties, as do several of the essential oils. Deozein works so well for me that now hubby, who has used Old Spice deodorant for over 50 years, has switched. I once went 3 days without a shower when I was sick, and even then I didn't stink!

At only 2 sprays needed per armpit, I have been using Deozein daily for over a month and still have more than half of a 1 oz. bottle left. How economical is that?

 

Source Vital also sells great lip balms, skin care products, and essential oils. Today's giveaway is for some of my favorites - Deozein, Deozein Zest, Cucumber Eye Cream, and Lip Balms. You may enter daily to win. Good luck!

Komega6 Sport Essential Oil Giveaway

Win A Komega6 Sport Essential Oil Travel Kit

Oh yes, I have another awesome giveaway for you this week! This time our giveaway is from my friends at Komega6 Sport Essential Oil.

As you know, I love these oils, which is not typical for me. I generally dislike the smell of most essential oils, and the fact that so many are long-lasting doesn't help. I also find that having to blend them with a carrier oil is annoying, but is necessary to avoid burns and other reactions.

[If your essential oils say that you can use them straight, or ingest them straight, run away quickly! Imagine how a strong lemon or orange oil could burn your skin and the inside of your throat. Plus, carrier oils aid absorption. ]

Komega6 Carrier Supreme

Every Komega6 sport essential oil blend comes ready to apply with their trademarked Carrier Supreme blend featuring coconut oil, avocado oil, flax seed oil, and kenaf seed oil. This carrier blend delivers an all-natural transport vehicle for topical oil use. Carrier Supreme also aids the absorption of potent essential oils to the skin for various sport and health related uses, all without the risk of unwanted side effects. Here is more info:

Right now, you will receive kenaf seeds in every Komega6 order as part of their #GrowTogether initiative.

 

Four Targeted Sport Essential Oil Formulas

Instead of having many bottles of essential oils around, with Komega6 there are four blends: Focus Factor, Metabolic Lift, Recover, and Rest Easy.

I use the oils in my day - Focus Factor before I leave for work and later if I feel scattered, Metabolic Lift on my muscles before a workout, Recover both on sore muscles and in a hot epsom salt bath, and Rest Easy an hour or so before bed, or at any time when I need to chill and relax. Here is more information about the oils generally, and each formula specifically.
