goPure lavender essential oil review

Lavender is one of the most commonly used essential oils because of its therapeutic healing properties and wonderfully fragrant aroma. GoPure lavender is 100% pure, premium, Bulgarian oil; it is undiluted, without any chemicals or additives. It is pure bliss. 

Lavender provides relief for both emotional and physical problems. It is known to improve your mood, help against insomnia, and calm your mind. It strengthens and refreshens, and it relaxes the body and the mind. I have found lavender oil to be the absolute best topical for any kind of burn. It neutralizes a burn almost instantly. I love to use lavender for aromatherapy purposes, natural healing, and natural cleaning. Like all my favorite products, lavender is a multi purpose oil that can be used for so many different things. 

The oil comes in a large 4 oz bottle with a convenient glass dropper that helps to control the amount you use. The scent is sweet and smooth and it heightens your senses and your awareness. I love to mix the oil with any kind of fractionated coconut oil and put it on after a bath or shower. You can also put a few drops in the bathtub, it is so calming and soothing.

Paw2Paw Nail Clippers

My 12-year-old pit bull, Coco, has many fears. Too many. At the top of her list? Nail clippers! I hate it almost as much as she does. She uses her sixth sense to predict when I am thinking about clipping her nails, and stubbornly lays down, hiding her paws in a way that makes it hard for me to get to her nails. Until I was introduced to Paw2Paw Quality Stainless Steel Nail Clippers, I dreaded these moments too. The clipper I bought, which was not cheap, was too dull and it often cracked poor Coco's nails in a way that made us both cringe…and that is only when I was successful in this horrible task. The Paw2Paw Clippers have changed not only my experience, but Coco's as well. After using it one time, I immediately discarded my old pair and will never look back. I will always rely on this clipper.

These clippers are super sharp. So sharp that the nail beds are cut cleanly and quickly. They truly are professional grade and make clipping a pets nails so much easier. The design is ergonomic, making it easy to grip and less likely to over cut, causing a painful, bloody mess. Oh the horror of over cutting nail beds! The clipper also comes with a handy nail file, hidden in one of the handles of the clipper. This is convenient and easy to use, making grooming a breeze. Coco's nails grow so fast, and are so thick and strong, that I could never keep up. These have absolutely changed our lives. One quick pop/snap and her thick nails are cleanly removed. If you have ever struggled with clipping your large dogs nails-awkwardly finding the right angle, squeezing so hard, cracking nail beds-then you definitely need to try these. I promise you will not regret it! If you are not happy, you can rely on the 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, but I am certain you will not need to use it. Purchase your own pair here. It is on sale now for only $11.97. It is worth every penny.

Botanyst ~ Restful Sleep Aids

I don't always get insomnia, but when I do it is a total nightmare. Sometimes I just cannot shut off my mind. I meditate, I count sheep, I practice deep breathing. And still my mind goes back to this loop of my ever growing to-do list. Restful Sleep was developed by physician and herbalist, Dr. Yan Ping Xu, to help calm and overactive mind and promote a full night's sleep. I don't take it every night but I can usually tell when I am going to have a rough night. The best thing is that it is a natural supplement, of course you know how I love natural.

The key ingredient in Restful Sleep is Astragalus. Yeah I have never heard of it either. It is an ancient Chinese herb that has been used and documented in medical text as far back as 220AD, for its health promoting effects on the spleen. My thoughts? Who the hell cares about the spleen when I'm trying to sleep? Well, in traditional Chinese medicine, stress and worry can impact the spleen which, apparently, can cause difficulty turning off the mind and falling asleep. So it's my spleen, not my brain, that's been keeping me up at night?! This is new information! In fact, in Chinese medicine the spleen is a VERY important organ, that every other organ relies on! When your spleen chi is out of balance, you can experience worry, fatigue, restlessness, and anxiety, which can all contribute to a poor night's sleep.  Astragalus helps to get your spleen chi back into balance and also helps quiet the mind, allowing the body to relax and rest for a good sleep. Restful Sleep is also fortified with calcium, magnesium, and potassium which support proper nerve function and absorb best overnight.  Restful Sleep is said to do the following:

~Calm & quiet a restless mind and body
~Promote a full night's restful sleep
~Nourish chi to bring harmony & balance into the body
~Promote calm throughout the day
~Restore vitality to the spleen and heart organ systems

My favorite thing about this product is that it is natural and it does not knock you out the way many sleeping aids do. It is a gentle product that works with your body to promote a regular sleep schedule. Developers of the product suggest you take the supplement regularly so your body adjusts and consistently changes your sleep pattern to a more regular cycle.

Lady Lidz Sleep Mask Review

I was recently given the opportunity to test and review Lady Lidz Sleep Mask. It came at the perfect time, as I had to work several overnights in the last few weeks. You see when I work overnights, I sleep days. It can be difficult to fall asleep when the sun is shining brightly through my window. This mask completely blocks out any light making it easy for me to get to sleep and stay asleep. I have had masks that are cheaply made, slide off my face, or let the light in. This mask is superior in several ways:

~Extra wide & thick to truly cover your peripheral
~Velcro closure to adjust the straps to your head size - good for my unusually small head
~Satin on the outside, won't stick your pillow and get pulled off your eyes
~Cotton velvet on the inside feels cool and comfortable on your eyes
~Earplugs are included to block out noise - another bonus for when I need to sleep during the day, those pesky lawnmowers won't keep my up

This is by far the best mask I have ever used, and I have used a lot of masks. There is nothing else to say except that I love this mask. Purchase yours on Amazon.
