I have dabbled with different essential oils and am a huge fan of tea tree oil to heal almost anything. So when I was asked to check these out, of course I agreed although I had never heard of Utama Spice company before.

giveaway_april_18_zesty_fresh_spa_kit

The essential oils they sent I actually have never used. They are;

Cajeput (Melaleuca Cajuputi) – Use for cuts and scrapes, therapeutic massage, decongestant.

Cajeput_Essential_Oil_10ml-600x400.jpg

A slightly medicinal smelling oil that carries a fruity camphor aroma with hyacinth and herbaceous undertones. Properties include antimicrobial, astringent, analgesic, stimulant, and anti-inflammatory, and as a natural bug repellent.

Cajeput has great value in skin care and wound cleansing, stimulates the mind and assists with getting back into balance. Its antiseptic and expectorant properties make it excellent for respiratory tract infections such as colds, laryngitis, bronchitis and it may be helpful for asthma, as well as nasal and sinus congestion.

Pain relieving properties make it useful in massage for neuralgia, headaches, muscle stiffness and general aches and pains. The oil is also reputed to have insect repellent qualities and can be applied to sooth insect bites.

Orange (Citrus Cinensis) – Use as room deodorizer, decongestant, stress relief and stimulation.

Orange_Essential_Oil_10ml-600x400

A refreshing sweet citrus aroma that delivers a multitude of uses.

A widely used room deodorizer with uplifting effects. Can also help relieve the symptoms of colds and other respiratory ailments.

Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) – known to be a potent and powerful aid for digestive health.

Its strong licorice flavor and aroma is gained from the steam distillation from the crushed seeds of the plant

Clove (Eugenia Caryophyllus) – Use as massage oil for stress relief and aphrodisiac, pain relief, skin care.

Clove_Essential_Oil_10ml

A sweet warm scent and very intense flavor. Clove oil is known to provide potent antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits and is a preservative when used in all-natural products.

Clove can be applied topically to irritated skin, combined with Coconut or Argan oil to create an aromatherapy massage oil, or mixed in other products to enhance their benefits. Clove oil can be used with a diffuser to sooth respiratory illnesses, relieve stress and treat headaches.

All of their essential oil’s are 10ml.  You can buy them in sets of 5 for $34.99 or single bottles at $14.99 AND they’re currently running a special, if you buy 5, you get a FREE Diffuser! How is that for getting a bargain?

Next up is the Yoga Mat Spray ($9.99 MSRP) comes in a 100ml bottle. There are 3 varieties to choose from but I was sent to Lavender which I love. It is such a relaxing fragrance. Although I am not a “yogi” I like to spray it around the house creating a calming environment.

yoga_mat_spray_category

“The missing link to achieve the perfect end to your practice. With just a few simple sprays you can sterilize your mat and bring on inner peace”

I also tested out the “Supa Dupa” Moon Flower incense and whoa are they nice and big! I hate getting incense and they burn so quick and done. These are huge! They burn very slow and are very aromatic. I was impressed by how long they were as well. They come in a really nice box too!

incense_all_regular-768x512.jpg

I got the 12 long sticks, which is $12.99 but they have a smaller option where you can get 6 for $6.99 as well.

Utama Spice’s natural incense sticks are all created using locally sourced spices and herbs. Lovingly hand rolled in Bali the incense is dipped in pure essential oil making these incense one of the most lovely smelling natural dupa sticks

“This long burning incense is a blend of flowers, barks, herbs, oils, nuts and spices using no synthetic or endangered plants. Wrapped in recycled paper. Handmade with Fair Trade and Tri Hita Karana principles.”

Lastly and most important, the Sonoma Yi Diffuser. This is the one I am GIVING AWAY to one of you lucky readers! You can pick up some oils for it in the Utama store or use any you currently have (although I have to say, that you SHOULD definitely check out some from Utima as they are high quality and so many to choose from).

Not only is it a Luxury ultrasonic diffuser, it is also an air humidifier and attractive LED lamp.

Elegant, clean design a perfect complement for the home, studio, spa, or salon.

DiaResQ Comes to the Rescue!

DiaResQ is a NEW Natural Approach That Comes to the Rescue! 
Think of all the times that you are running errands and need to eat something quickly that doesn’t agree with you later! Next time when you feel the signs of diarrhea, you can reach for a product that really works! DiaResQ is a food, not a drug, made from naturally derived ingredients to provide rapid indigestion relief.

DiaResQv3 (1)

How Does DiaResQ Work?
DiaResQ works with your body to support digestive health and restore normal intestinal function. It features an innovative combination of immune factors and important nutritional components. Plus, it is safe for children as young as one year in age. Besides being handy to have at home, it’s the perfect companion to take on trips near and far!

How is DiaResQ Different?
Many diarrhea relief products alleviate the symptoms by interfering with your body’s natural immune response when you eat something that doesn’t agree with you. DiaResQ is different because it works with your body’s natural defenses to support digestive health by delivering micronutrients, macronutrients, and immune factors to get you back to normal in no time!

Where Can I Find DiaResQ?

Digital wellbeing. The new normal health checkup you must do on yourself

20180828_194819

Digital wellbeing. The new normal health checkup you must do on yourself and your children.

Being a blogger, I have some close contacts with youtube, and have been enlightened by their ability to say, “hey, we love you, but you need a break from us!”

YouTube is introducing new tools that help people better understand their tech usage, focus on what matter most and disconnect when needed.  Starting today, anyone can find all of these new tools in one place, alongside more info about how much time they’re actually spending on YouTube.

You can access this easily on your youtube account by clicking to home.  There is a new “time watched” button.

Phew.

I thought I watched much more than this, but I guess it’s been a busy week and I haven’t been as engulfed in my phone.

20180828_193849.jpg

It’s almost scary to hit the button and see the reality in black and white.

I suggest everyone takes a moment to check this new feature out and especially check in on your children’s youtube binging and see if you need to adjust anything to fit your family needs better.

This is better explained in a blog release from Youtube themselves.

Relax Be Healthy Organic Essential Oils and Waters

Today is June 2nd, the unofficial start of Summer in my mind.  It immediately makes me feel at ease knowing school is coming to an end for my kids and long play days in the yard await. Health has been on my mind as well since of course everyone wants to be in their best shape for the beach and water parks.

Lately I’ve been on sort of a health kick.. 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.

It 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).

20170601_204147.jpg

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.

20170602_072647

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.

20170601_203159

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.

20170602_072702

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.
