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!

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.

Yogi Surprise Monthly Box

I’ve been a little MIA lately with alot going on now that it’s Summer. My kids and I have been busy to say the least.

I am excited to try out another Yogi Surprise box and treat myself! The last box, linked above was really awesome and what’s better is this time I have TWO to show you.

20180712_183634

They have a couple of themes you can choose from if you join their subscription service, depending on what tickles your fancy (does anyone really even say that anyone?! LOL).

All products are non-GMO, & cruelty-free. Check them out here: https://yogisurprise.com/yoga-box/https://yogisurprise.com/jewelry-box/

First up is the yoga box. This month’s theme is “adventure”.

I must prefix this by stating I found the BEST new Summer product in this box. I am in love with this Badger brand all natural Aloe gel. Its clear and not at all sticky. It is a life saver this Summer for me especially on my face.  It is definitely helping with the dry peeling skin I have from chlorine and sunburn.

Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.

I’ve been only using it for the past 3 days and I’ve seen amazing results on my facial appearance already.

I have larger pores and its smoothing out my skin, especially near my nose. Also the redness is evening out, but it isn’t clogging my pores like some lotions do.

The BEST part? A daily Aloe facial regimen can help reduce wrinkles! Yes, I said it! Makes sense doesn’t it? Plump your face full of natural goodness and hydration and the wrinkles will slowly fade.  That’s my goal!

Next up is the Yogi Surprise Aloha hip pouch made out of 100% coated Tyvek® to keep your valuables safe from splashes, spills and weather. Retail value $36.

I like that “fanny packs” are making a big comeback. Rapper Logic has made a statement making sure to add one to many of his outfits.

This one is particularly useful this Summer since it is somewhat water proof (I have a feeling water can maybe leak in through the zipper though). Not to mention it is super lightweight

African Chai Tea by Just Tea is a nice change up to my normal coffee routine.

20180709_195824

One really cool thing about each Yogi Surprise box is that they always include a Yogi surprise sequence card. Try some of these out if you can while you sip your tea!20180709_195635

Surprise surprise! This Yogi box also has a special jewelry piece to add to your collection.  A simple natural stone necklace that comes with interchangeable necklace lace.

20180709_19585420180709_195959

 

Lastly it’s the all natural Nantucket Spider bug repellent.  This is a must have for all parents! Spray it on yourself if you do not want to put anything on your kids (even though it is all natural, deet free) and it’ll help keep the bugs away from your little tribe.

The 3 pieces in this month’s box really add up to alot. The plunging necklace along with the matching bracelet (and if you got the yogi surprise yogi box you have the bonus matching necklace!) are the perfect accessories to daytime or nighttime outfits.

The white pearl look matte beads are my favorite!

You know I enjoy a good subscription box. So when I was invited to review Yogi Suprise, of course I jumped on board. It’s something about the ‘unknown’ when that box shows up on the mail,  it makes it feel like ion opening a present!

New to market,  Yogi Suprise is a monthly subscription box valued at over $70 a month according to their website. They only pass a $44.95 fee along to the customer for this monthly box (+ Free Shipping), and although the subscription auto-renews monthly once you sign up,  you have the option to cancel at any time..

What’s different about Yogi Suprise? It promotes a healthy lifestyle, with Yoga, charity,  and global well-being intertwined.

You can choose between the ‘Lifestyle or ‘Jewelry” boxes.  The one i received is the lifestyle box,  so it is a mix of goodies.

So without further delay,  I present to you,  my first  Yogi Suprise Lifestyle box.
