We are no strangers to Bookroo’s monthly subscription program. In fact, my son remembers how fun it was to unveil the books the last time he got a shipment, check out my previous post from a couple years back.
This is a great gift idea for little ones and older kids as well. They have board books as well as paperback and all are quality books worth every penny of the monthly fee you will be paying for them. The wrapping paper that they come wrapped in is worth that much alone!
Imagine the faces one the kids wheb they get their monthly package in the mail with two books to unwrap. Just watch my 5 year olds reaction to the “gifts” he got!
What’s even better is the fact that this makes him want to try reading and creates an excitement around the possibility of books. Personally, we have so many books that I like to donate books when we are done with them, but these we tend to keep because they’re special!
Right now they have a GREAT Cyber Monday deal going on for 25% off you order by tomorrow 11/27!
BFJERSEY for 25% off any multi-month subscription (3,6, or 12 months)
One redemption per family. Valid for new customers only. Existing customers may use for the purchase of one gift subscription.
Lately I’ve been on sort of a health kick.. I am part of a bootcamp training facility that I go to daily at 5am, I am walking a mike a day on my lunch break at work and eating more consciously. I’ve been getting a little into essential oils and using my oil diffuser while i take a shower or a relaxing bath with a bath fizz and some eucalyptus scented Epsom salt to help ease my sore muscles and dry skin.
It also helps me to wind down from the day and just clear my mind. My kids have also used the eucalyptus to help with allergies and sinus issues, I just prop the diffuser in their room and they’re good to go after a couple hours relaxing with it filling the room with aromas.
With that being said, I want to give my opinion on a lesser known mom and pop store in my home town of Staten Island (I love saying I was born on an island because it’s true haha).
Www.Relaxbehealthy.com sent me a few items to check out and i have to say I’m really loving them. I haven’t had much experience with essential oil water sprays but these probably take the cake of i had to guess from what i see with their essential oils.
All of their products are organic and hand made in their shop with imported products from around the world. The items in reviewing are made from raw materials from Bulgaria and are the real deal.
First up to the plate is the Lavender Water. It’s a 4oz misting spray and is $10.99. It has a scent of lavender just a bit lighter then the oil, and is a super soft delicate mist.
All natural Bulgarian organic Lavender water:
Use to soothe skin, used for redness of soon, eczema, inflammation caused by mosquito bites (must try this!), and acne. It also helps eradicate dandruff and prevent scalp infections.
When sprayed directly only hair, it helps make hair shiny as it conditions the hair.
You can use the water spray as deodorant for your body, or even spray on furniture and around the home to deodorize.
There are many other different uses for lavender you can experiment with.
Now this Rose Water is my absolute favorite. They captured such am amazing scent I could wear it as a body must and probably will! Also $10.99 at their store, I wish you could smell it through this post, but if you do order from them, I suggest you put this in your cart.
All natural organic Bulgarian Rose Water:
It can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, helps to maintain the skin’s PH balance, helps to hydrate the skin, helps to aid healing scars, cuts, wounds, regenerate skin tissues, dermatitis and eczema. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores, helps aging skin, wrinkles and fine lines
Extra fun uses include mood enhancer and spray the scent on your pillow to help to sleep better.

For dry & frizzy hair: Mix equal parts rosewater and glycerin, apply on the scalp, massage for 10-15 minutes. Let it stay for another 30 minutes and wash off with shampoo.
Last but not least is their 20ml Lavender Oil that retails for $24.99 but is currently on sale for $21.99 At their online boutique. This little potent bottle is much more fragrant then any other essential oil I’ve gotten and you can tell it’s just so fresh and pure. Check out my video below to see what i compared it to.
