If you’ve walked into a Day Spa, a New Age book shop, or Asian Imports store, you might associate the memory with the calming aroma of essential oils. It’s no mystery why Aromatherapy  — a range of alternative or complementary therapies that use essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds — is so popular. Everyone loves an inviting scent,  and it’s easy to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home using incense, candles or an essential oil diffuser.  But sometimes you might want your aromatherapy to be a bit more personal and portable.  For those occasions, let me introduce you to Mood Food.

Product Review: CBD ME Lip Balm by Eco Lips

Well, it appears to be that time of year / the pandemic (again) where we’re going back to school, or returning to the office — or at least making an effort. This reboot of a once-famliar-but-now-somewhat-strange ritual necessitates the reexamination of what items we must shove in our purse or backpack so that we feel safe and comfortable leaving the house. You probably have a list: hand sanitizer, tissues, extra mask, and — something I never leave home without — lip balm. Last year, we reviewed the Mongo Kiss Lip Balms by Eco Lips and found this line of all-natural lip protection to be high quality and also fun to use. Win win!

Now, Eco Lips ups their game by introducing a CBD infused line of all-natural lip balms, CBD ME, which ticks all the boxes for me.

Product Review: AmourCBD, the 1st FDA Registered CBD Cream

CBD products for pain relief are more popular than ever,  for the simple reasons that they are both highly effective and readily available. But not all CBD creams and topical treatments are created equal; many commercial CBD products are of sub-standard quality. Produced in unregulated factories, these creams and salves may contain adulterating substances, including trace amounts of THC and other undesirable chemicals from hemp grown in foreign countries with questionable farming practices. The good news  is that there’s now a high-quality alternative line of CBD products on the market.

Just in time for National CBD Day (August 8th) I’ve been introduced to AmourCBD, the first FDA registered CBD cream, made from the best quality and medical-grade ingredients. Most importantly, AmourCBD products contain no THC, the psychoactive substance in cannabis and, to a lesser extent, in hemp, which means it’s safe to use and safe to travel with.

Product Review: Elementa Nano Silver Dental Care

You might have heard a cautionary tale about how, when it comes to dental health, it’s not sugar you need to be wary of, but food acids, because that’s what causes tooth decay. I’ve been advised by my dentist to avoid brushing too soon after drinking acidic beverages such as soda, orange juice or even wine, because they can make your tooth enamel extra susceptible to erosion. Just being serious. Keeping his advice in mind, I will usually wait an hour or so to brush after eating an acidic food, and drink a glass of water to rinse my teeth of any excess food residue, but that isn’t necessarily providing your teeth the level of protection they need every day. What are you gonna do? Here’s what.

Elementa Nano Silver is a line of entirely new oral health products that protect your teeth by neutralizing food acids, and go beyond the benefits of fluoride by effectively breaking down dental plaque, and even remineralizing the tooth surface – amazing! A few weeks ago, I received the Elementa Nano Silver Tooth Gel, and their Mouth Rinse, to review for the blog, and here’s what you need to know about these very appealing products — because now that we can go (mostly) mask-less, we want our mouths to be as fresh as possible!

Trending Products that Prove The Nineties Are Back, Baby!

To me it seems like the ’90s just happened, but I was recently reminded that those born in 1990 are now over 30 years old. Yeah, crazy. The passage of time takes people by surprise, which is one of the reasons nostalgia washes over us in reoccurring waves. Currently, everything old is new again when it comes to the resurgence of Nineties pop culture!

From dance trends, to toys, food, fashion, music and more — we’re consumed with inspiration that allows us to live in the past. It’s no secret that people are willing to spend more if the product reminds them fondly of a previous time, and marketers have been tapping into the trend to drive purchasing power. Just in time for Prime Day, here are a few products from the no-so-distant past that you’re probably seeing more of these days, especially on social media.

Thanks to the successful rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, we can finally start to think about the possibility of traveling during the pandemic. But while the numbers may be down, we still have to  remain cautious and take the basic steps (masking up, washing hands frequently, and keeping socially distant) to ensure our health and safety while on vacation. With that in mind, one item you will want to toss into your carry-on is a travel-size bottle of Disinfect & Shield 24 Hour Face Mask/Fabric Sanitizer.

Unlike traditional disinfectants on the market, Disinfect & Shield is non-toxic and completely safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. Disinfect & Shield has been tested to destroy viruses, bacteria, molds, and fungi, including strains of SARS, H1N1, E. Coli, EBOLA and harmful microbes including COVID-19 on contact.
