Relaxation Herbal Tea

With the change in my hormones after going through menopause, I have found it more difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. This lovely herbal tea blend has solved at least the issue not being able to fall asleep. Each of the ingredients in this vegan herbal blend are caffeine and gluten free.

The herbal tea contains 100% organic ingredients, including chamomile, cinnamon, peppermint, red raspberry leaf and valerian root. Each of these ingredients has been chosen because of their relaxation and/or sleep promoting properties. To brew, Place 1 teaspoonful of tea in infuser or cup. Pour hot, but not boiling, water on tea and let steep for at least 3-5 minutes. I don’t mind a stronger brew, so I will generally start drinking my tea after about 10 minutes and will leave the infuser in the cup until I’m almost done with the tea.

I find the mild flavor of this herbal tea quite nice & drink the tea as is, without any additions. I have found that drinking this tea within an hour of going to sleep has greatly helped me to sleep more deeply and for loner periods of time.

A nice free gift is included with the purchase of this tea. You will receive a doubled-sided plastic measuring spoon. One side of the spoon measures 1 teaspoon and the other side measures 1 tablespoon. The measuring spoon contains two tiny magnets. I keep my spoon conveniently placed on the side of my refrigerator.

The Perfect Pillow for Those with Allergies or Asthma

I can not even begin to tell how comfortable my new Shredded Memory Foam pillow is! I knew that it was going to be comfortable because I have a memory foam bed that I absolutely love. This pillow supports my head & neck very well, whether I am lying on my back or on one of my sides. I suffer from asthma & allergies & I have not woke up being congested or stuffed up since switching to this pillow.

The pillow comes compressed and rolled up very tightly. When you first remove it from the box, it looks much more like a bolster than it does a standard bed pillow. After you un-wrap the pillow, it will take several hours for it to fluff up to its normal size. Once the memory foam has had time to fully relax, the pillow is about 7 inches thick.

The side-zip closure bamboo/polyester blend covering is very soft next to my skin. I was able to put a standard pillowcase on this pillow. However, due to the thickness, I did have a bit of a struggle to squeeze the pillow into the case!

I am very pleased with the quality and comfort of this Relax Home Life pillow! I highly recommend this pillow to anyone looking for a well-made, high quality pillow that will serve them well for years to come.

Form, Function and Quality All Come Together in This Stylish Diffuser!

ZAQ Noor Diffuser

My favorite way to keep my home smelling fresh & inviting is by diffusing essential oils.  Diffusing essential oils is also a great way to reduce germs & promote healing of respiratory ailments, such as coughs and colds.  I recently acquired a new misting diffuser and here is my review of the device.

ZAQ Noor Essential Oil Diffuser is a cone-shaped device that is about 5 inches tall and 5.5 inches across the base. It diffuses a very ultra-fine mist. This diffuser has color changing LED lights. The color-changing LED lights cycle through white, red, purple, blue, green, and yellow with all the various shades in between, as the lights morph from one color to the next. Included in the box is a water receptacle. The receptacle holds about ½ Cup of water, but you will only need about 1/3 Cup to fill the diffuser’s reservoir.
ZAQ Noor DiffuserThe diffuser has 4 modes: 1) Off, 2) On with Misting & Color Changing Lights, 3) On with Misting Single Solid Color Light, & 4) On with Misting Only, Without the Lights. The 3rd Mode will hold a solid color light of whatever the light is on when the mode is set. The reservoir will diffuse for about 4 hours before needing to be refilled.

I really like the way that this diffuser works & the color changing light really do add to the ambiance that it creates. I highly recommend this well-made, high quality diffuser.

Uncover Softer, Smoother Feet With Very Little Effort!

Pretty Feet

Both my husband and I are totally in love with our new PediBunny Electric Callus Remover and Foot File. My husband has always had rough dry calluses on his feet, especially on his heels. He has always used a basic corn and callus scraper, the type that that basically resembles a cheese grater. I don’t really have any corns or calluses, but I do get dry, rough skin on the soles of my feel from going barefoot most of the time.

Neither of us had ever used a mechanical callus remover and foot file before, so we had no idea what to expect. We both have been very happy with the results we have obtained from using this product. I am very sensitive to using anything on my feet, but this little device was very gentle yet worked like a charm! It took away the roughness on my soles and made my feet very soft & smooth. No more rough skin “catching” on my socks or on the bed sheets. My husband has also been very pleased with his results from using the PediBunny. He is able to remove the rough skin from his heels so much easier and faster than before.

I highly recommend the PediBunny to anyone who wants to experience softer, smoother skin on the heels & soles of their feet, with very little effort!

Other conditions that can be relieved by using these insoles include sore feet, poor circulation in the feet, corns and calluses on the feet and toes, back pain, heel pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and Morton’s neuroma.

I Forgot to Remember?

Don't Forget

Since I started going through menopause a few years ago, I have noticed that it has been increasingly more difficult to remember things in my short term memory. For instance, knowing what word I wanted to say, but not able to think of it so that I can get it out. Or walking to another room to do a task or get something and totally forgetting what I went in there for by the time I got there, which would only be a matter of seconds.

I had been reading that Ginkgo Biloba has been used to help with memory and focus.  In my reading, I have found that Ginkgo improves blood flow to the brain and acts as an antioxidant.  So, I figured that I would give a Ginkgo Biloba supplement a try.  What did I have to lose? More memory??

On Amazon, I found this Ginkgo Biloba Complex for Memory & Focus from Pegasus Nutrition. It is all natural & is backed by a no-questions asked, 100% 60-Day money back guarantee. That sounded ;like a decent deal to me.  So, I placed my order.

After taking the capsules twice a day for a week, I have actually experienced improvement in my memory, as well as my focus! I have been having much less difficulty in recalling words and tasks from my short term memory.  Plus, these capsules seem to have given me an afternoon energy boost, where normally tend to become sluggish and hard to remain focused on the task at hand.

I must say that I am pretty pleased with my results, so far.  I plan on finishing the bottle and most likely will be placing an ordering for more, as long as I continue to experience the same results.

My Week Has Been Busy, How Was Yours?

Things have been going really well with MR & his new job.  So far, he really likes it there & he likes all the people he has been working with.  He spent the first 4 days filling out paperwork, and in training watching safety films and such.  He has worked two shifts now, with tonight being his third.  Both of his first two shifts he ended up staying a little later than he was scheduled.  He may again tonight, who knows.  At least it shows them that he’s willing to work! 🙂

In other news, in my quest to try to find ways to add to our income, I have been introduced to the world of Product Testing.  Now, you will NOT actually make money testing products at home, but you CAN acquire some pretty nice stuff really inexpensively!

Here is one very nice item that I received to test & review.

Oil Diffuser

This Essential Oil Diffuser normally retails on Amazon for $44.95.  I received it at a discount in exchange for my honest review. So, while I technically didn’t make any money, I got a really nice item to keep & SAVED almost $40.00!  All I had to do was to use the item & write a review in my own word of how I liked it – or didn’t like it, if that was my experience.  Since I get Amazon Gift Card codes from SwagBucks, I have had ZERO actual out of pocket expense in the two weeks that I have been product testing.

Well, I’m off…….I have a few more reviews that I need to get written up tonight!
