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.

They have so many products, it’s amazing! From organic bug sprays, to lotions, oils, shampoos, and chapsticks. Do yourself a favor and check out their store. They also do giveaways each month, and they’re pretty awesome packages you can win directly from their website.

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.

“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!

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.

I HATE mosquitoes. Like, really really hate them. Yuck, it just grosses me out to no end thinking of them swapping my blood & my children’s blood with other people and animals, how disgusting and unsanitary!

But I have to say I am not a big fan of bug repellents. Especially the sprays that smell gross and make you feel dirty and oily all day. My kids run anytime I try to spray them with any type of spray, especially something so pungent and strong. This makes it easier for me to just say screw it and leave them unprotected from bugs. With all of these new virus’s carried by mosquitoes like Zika and West Nile I always find myself crossing my fingers that the bite they got today is just an itchy nuisance and nothing more.

I stumbled upon the brand Para’Kito that claims to be all natural and safe for children & pregnant women. What intrigued me most is the fact that it wasn’t a spray and it claimed to be as effective but made from all natural essential oils. It is a selection of different wearable items that work for anyone and can make a perfect give for yourself.

  • Wristbands MSRP $19.50 – They come in all different colors and styles and have sized specifically for children. These work with essential oil pellets that release scents to mask your skin. Each pellet lasts 15 days.
  • Clips MSRP $19.50 – These clips can be clipped onto strollers which is AWESOME to keep baby protected or you can put it right onto your keys or purse strap. These work with essential oil pellets that release scents to mask your skin. Each pellet lasts 15 days.
  • Roll-on MSRP $19.50 – This is just what it sounds like. A roll-on stick that rolls the oil onto your skin. It does smell a little stronger then the others but it forms a physical barrier between your skin an the nasty bugs.
  • Unidose Gel MSRP $1.00 ea – You just bust open the little packet it comes in and smear it all over your skin for 5 hours of protection.

I’m testing each of these items out for you! They are a bit expensive, and I haven’t had a chance to really put them to work yet since it’s just the beginning of mosquito season, but I’ll be sure come back and update this post once I get the full review in.

In my opinion, some coverage is better then none. So if I can get my kids to wear this wrist band or clip or even get the roll-on gel onto them, its better then leaving them unprotected!

parakito

PARA’KITO resolves all these worries & concerns with its line of colorful and waterproof refillable wristbands and clips. Also safe for pregnant women who cannot use harsh sprays, PARA’KITO has quickly positioned itself as a global leader in natural, DEET-free mosquito repellent alternatives.

Packed into a kid-friendly pellet that sits comfortably in the pouch of a band or clip, you can rest assured the little ones will be safe from the following of our least favorite bugs this spring and summer.

A little more info on how the PAra’Kito brand products work;

The pellets operate by releasing a blend of essential oils that interfere with mosquitoes’ sense of smell, thereby reducing their capacity to identify their prey.

Mosquitoes’ orientation relies on a combination of olfaction, heat detection, and vision,  which means that spatial protection products can offer relative, but not absolute protection.

In case of high infestation, the roll-on gel has been specially developed. This super-smart gel works both as a barrier and a mask. Applied directly to the exposed areas of the skin, ankles, wrists,face and neck, it immediately forms a barrier between you and the mosquito that lasts up to five hours. As the natural oils’ active ingredients are released into the air around you, they also help to mask the scents of your breath and body, making it harder for mosquitoes to find you.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS;

Citronella Oil……34.0%

Rosemary Oil……22.0%

Geranium Oil……21.0%

Mint Oil………….10.0%

Clove Oil………….2.5%

Peppermint Oil….1.5%

DEET FREE & No Animal Testing!
