In the last several months I have been looking for more natural products to try. I haven't become "green" yet per se, but I would like to. It isn't easy when you are just starting out. Especially if you are on a tight budget. Plus, it seems so hard to find good, safe yet natural products. Even products that are advertised as natural...sometimes aren't. It was a great opportunity for us to hear about Beeyoutiful and get to try out some of their natural products! Thanks to the TOS crew and Beeyoutiful we relaxed with Tension Tamer and B.A.L.M.
(From their website) At Beeyoutiful.com, we believe that each individual is responsible for their own health. It is not a doctor's responsibility to keep you in good health. Instead they are a tremendous resource, especially for those times when urgent care is required. But, they are only one of many resources. And the tools they use, while powerful, are not the only tools available. But a tool is worthless unless one knows how to use it.
We have found a lot a tools that have worked very well for our families, and made Beeyoutiful a repository for those tools, as well as the information to effectively use them. As we learn more, we share more. Our goal is to eventually carry every natural product that we use. We're not there yet. We may never be as we are constantly being exposed to new and great products. As much as is in our power, we want to aid others in obtaining and maintaining good health.
I have dabbled with aromatherapy in the past but it has been a long while since I have seriously considered alternative therapies. As soon as I opened this little tube of tension tamer, the scent took me back....way back...to the days when I studied herbs, made my own tinctures and infusions, and dabbled in aromatherapy. The funny thing is...the memory alone instantly made me feel better! Rubbing the aromatic blend on my temples -- even better! I love the smell!
From the product ad:
The ultimate de-stressor! This incredible combination of essential oils act to reduce pain, relieve tension and combat headaches. A great nerve relaxer and pocket decongestant. Roll Tension Tamer on temples, wrists, nose, or neck and relax as your headache and tension disappear. Great for children too!
And it is. Everytime I rolled tension tamer all over my forehead (rough days at my house) my kids asked for it too. We all settled down quickly after. This worked great in our house during the "witching hour." You know, that time right around 5pm, before Daddy gets home, before dinner, but after nap. The one where little girls (and probably boys) run through the house, whooping and hollering, shrieking and shouting. Try tension tamer - it sucked the rowdiness right out of my kids. :)
Ingredients: Expeller pressed jojoba oil, expeller pressed sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, eucalyptus essential oil, peppermint essential oil, wintergreen essential oil.
You can purchase Tension Tamer HERE. It retails for: $11.00 per tube. You can also save buy buying more, see chart below.
B.A.L.M. - Beeyoutiful All Natural Lip Moisturizer
MMMmmmm! We received the orange lip balm to try. I love it! It smells, honestly, like an orange sweet roll and when I put it on my lips my kids laugh and laugh as we try to sniff our own lips. It goes on smoothly and evenly and doesn't leave your lips feeling oily or greasy like other natural lip balms. My girls both like it way better than the stinky, waxy chapsticks you get from drugstores and a LOT better than the minty chapsticks which "makes their lips tingle funny."
From the product ad:
Who hasn’t struggled at some point with dry, chapped lips?
Either during the dry winter months, after being outside gardening or during sporting events, or even during a cold. Conventional lip moisturizers can be harsh and even damaging to fragile lip membranes with chemicals and fuel derived bases. Beeyoutiful’s all natural Lip Balms offer you a choice of a soothing, healing lip balm that you can be confident in the ingredients, knowing you are using the very best on your lips!
The convenient size fits in your purse, pocket, diaper bag or gym bag for easy access wherever you may be.
GrapeSeed Oil- high in antioxidants (procyanidolic oligomers and polyphenols) and linoleic acid which nourish, moisturize, naturally provide anti-inflammatory support, and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles! So instead of merely relieving your chapped lips, it is nourishing them and helping them look their best as well!
Shea Butter- also high in antioxidants, Shea Butter helps bring elasticity back to the skin, moisturizes, has natural sun protection, and helps bring healing to scars and wounds.
Beeswax- recommended by Mayo Clinic as an excellent choice for a lip balm, beeswax is high in germicidal antioxidants, possesses natural anti-inflammatory abilities, and has been shown to have antibacterial qualities. It gives body to the lip balm while providing moisture and cell restoration for your lips!
Essential Oils- (Either Orange or Peppermint Essential Oil)- Both provide refreshing flavors while providing their naturally inherent benefits to your lips! Orange is a refreshing, citrusy blast that helps to brighten your lips. Peppermint’s cool, tingly flavor will bring soothing refreshment to your lips on the driest of days!
Lip balm comes in peppermint and orange! MMMMmmmm!
You can purchase lip balm HERE. It retails for: $3.00 per stick. Or, when you buy 3, pay only $2.70 per stick!
