Baby Mantra

IMG_2632

“I participated in Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Baby Mantra. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.” www.momcentralconsulting.com

My children’s skin is very important to me. I always try my best to use the most gentlest of products on their delicate bodies.  Finding all natural products are always a challenge.  When I heard of Baby Mantra products I couldn’t wait to try them.  Their all natural, cruelty-free, and gluten-free products are all made in the U.S.

IMG_2631

I have two children, an 18 month old daughter and an almost 5 year old son.  Both of them have very sensitive skin so I have to be careful with what I use.  Each night they both get a bath individually.  Typically I add soap to my daughter’s bath and use that to wash her.  For my son, I put soap on a washcloth and wash him at the end of his bath.  Then I thoroughly rinse him so he doesn’t get a rash. Immediately after I dry each of them, and then give them a massage with soothing lotion. Baby Mantra’s products fit very well into my routine.

I absolutely loved using the 3-in-1 Bubble Bath + Shampoo + Wash. A little goes a long way. I put in a few drops for my daughter’s bath and it created lots of bubbles; she loved it!  The smell was very calming and relaxing, not overbearing at all.  The soap made her skin feel very soft.  For my son, it worked better when I just put it on a washcloth and washed him. I tried adding the wash to his bathwater since sometimes he likes bubbles. Unfortunately he broke out in a rash the next day.  As long as I rinsed him after washing, there was no problem.  The 3-in-1 Bubble Bath + Shampoo + Wash is made with natural ingredients including Aloe Vera and Lavender.

Baby Mantra’s Calming Lotion was my favorite. Massaging my children’s skin with it after baths was a very relaxing time.  The lotion was very creamy and the smell was wonderful. A little went a long way with the convenient pump feature.  It made my children’s skin feel nice and soft. Even the next morning their skin was still soft.  Baby Mantra’s Calming Lotion is made with natural ingredients including Shea Butter, Lavender Oil, Olive Oil, and Sage Oil.

Baby Mantra offers a variety of skin care products for babies, kids, and adults. Some of their other products include Calming Massage Oil, Newborn Shampoo & Body Wash, and Detangling Conditioner.  All of their products contain natural ingredients such as Avocado, Sunflower Seed, Mango Butter, and Wheat Germ.

1-home-index-747x300-01a

Just Natural Organic Products… MADE IN THE USA!!!!

This is a wonderful company providing organic products to consumers! We were very pleased that Just Natural let us review part of their product line!

The company offers a wide array of effective, powerful, hair and skincare products with formulas inspired by nature. Most importantly … NO GMO’S…Eco friendly and NOT tested on animals!

The Just Natural Line stated the following about their ingredients:

logos-no-gmos-2d

 

 

 

I know I have mentioned this in a previous post… but it is WORTH repeating!!!! *** This is such a wonderful list it makes my heart smile knowing that I can bring healthy non-chemical laden product to my family! ***

We were pleased to be able to review two products specially formulated for children.

kids-hair-skin-747x300-1d

    The products reviewed were:

    Boys 3 in 1 Shampoo

    Girls Shampoo

boys-hair-3-in-1-shampoo-AA

The Boys 3 in 1 is an AWESOME product! This is a great product for boys because it can be used as shampoo, body wash and conditioner…WOW! This product is just right for kids on the go who need to grab and go and not worry about fussing with extra body washes or conditioners! We found that this product works well when we go to the indoor swimming pool and shower afterward… it works great for the whole family to use as a 3 in 1 for a quick shower after swimming! We also love that it is specially formulated for children because                                        as we all know children’s skin is more delicate than an                                        adults skin. This product is made from the mildest plant                                      based ingredients!

girls-hair-shampoo_AAAlthough we wish there was a 3 in 1 for girls… we DID LOVE the Girls Shampoo! This was such a nice fragrant shampoo… that is specially formulated for young ladies hair! I have two daughters and this was a treat for them to use. Both of my daughters thought their hair felt smooth and soft after use! Again we love that this is formulated for children and made from the mildest plant ingredients as to avoid irritation, which is important to us!

natural-organic-4d

    What about price? The Just Naturals line of products are VERY     well priced for organic/natural products… they offer larger           sizes for a great price! At a farmers market or retail store you     cannot get the larger sizing or the QUALITY!!!

Please take a moment to visit justnaturalskincare.com you will not be displeased! Their products are SO awesome I cannot wait to try other items from their product line.

Their products can also be found on Amazon.com!

20140928_031233

 

We LOVED the Hair & Body Babywash! This      was such a great product! My children are        older 6, 8, and 10…but it worked wonderfully    on them and myself I might add! This really      is a product that you can use for the whole        family. It is very gentle. My daughter has          eczema so I am always cautious of what I        use on her skin and this product is so gentle      it did not cause flare ups ! The pump spout is    a great addition to the product as it makes        dispensing easy…I always like a pump spout    better than a flip top!

 

Professional Performance

  • Say goodbye to Cradle Cap and Eczema.
  • Leaves Hair & Skin Clean & Ultra Soft
  • Gentle pH for Skin & Hair of 6.0-7.0
  • Naturally Helps Clear Cradle Cap

 

20140928_031221

 

The Natural Shampoo is a great start to any      hair regimin for children and adults! The            shampoo has a great lather and performs          well on hair. My children have very thick hair    and it is often hard to get natural product to      wash out of their hair. This product washed      out nicely and left the hair smelly and feeling    wonderful! AS an added bonus for us it also      provided great conditioning and detangling        too!

Professional Performance
  • Gentle pH of 6.0-7.0 to Help Retain Hair Color
  • For Babies, Children & Adults
  • Detangling & Conditioning

20140928_031247

The deep conditioner boasts soft, strong,          healthy hair….and it does live up to its claim!    This conditioner is wonderful. Again … I have    had so much trouble in the past rinsing out        natural products from the hair…but this            conditioner goes on smooth and rinses out        nicely…leaving hair soft and manageable!        This is a great addition to your hair care            routine!

Professional Performance
  • For Babies, Children & Adults
  • For All Hair Types & Textures
  • Rich in Moisture & Protein

20140928_031310

 

This is by far our favorite product from              Original Sprout! This product truly makes          combing effortless! We love using the                detangler on wet hair right after the                  bath…but found it works EXCELLENT on dry      hair too! So often my daughters go to bed        with wet hair only to wake up looking tangled    and disheveled in the morning. Just a spritz      of this detangler and a quick comb/brush          through makes their hair look sleek again and    well groomed!

 

20140928_031306
   Another plus to the miracle              detangler is that it has this nifty      pump spray! This spray is so            nice … simple and easy to              use…much nicer than a cream        detangler that has to be applied      with the hands. The pump makes    dispensing effortless!
Professional Performance
  • For Babies, Children & Adults
  • For All Hair Types & Textures
  • Helps Prevent Breakage
All Original Sprout products we reviewed come with the Worry-Free claim below!

Blog Forward 2014 Challenge #3 by ZonePerfect

Although I have entered the Blog Forward program and received complimentary product and ZonePerfect promotional items, I am free to comment about ZonePerfect in a positive, neutral or negative fashion.

ZonePerfect Blog Forward 2014 Challenge

Blog Forward 2014 Challenge #3 by ZonePerfect

You may or may not remember my earlier posts for the ZonePerfect Challenge #1 and Challenge #2. Here I am again for Challenge #3, which is:

Challenge #3: How you feel your progress has gone so far? Review the letter you wrote in the beginning of the year. How do you plan to recharge and renew the excitement you felt in the beginning of the year to get yourself through the year successfully?

A Review of My New Year’s Resolutions

You all know I don’t make resolutions so here is my “loose” list of goals for 2014:

1. Increase our income. (I *think* God is well on His way to answering this prayer…need a bit more time to be sure.)

2. Nutrition. Eat and grow more vegetables to we can freeze and can our winter supply.

3. Take our children on more field trips.

4. Get more organized as a whole family – mostly the house as it is an ongoing battle, that and getting the children to stay on task.

On to Challenge #3

How am I progressing?

  • I would say baby steps. I’m continuing to work on organization in our home and trying to teach everyone else how to contribute to that organization. This is a constant issue in our home, even with older children.
  • We have taken the children on a couple more field trips – the Young Flyers day, apple picking, berry picking – but funds are limited so we will be planning to take advantage of free museum days.
  • Nutritionally, we are doing ok, but have not been able to grow enough to can or freeze because of our commitment to our CSA members. But at least we got to eat from our garden more this year than we did last year!

My only plan is to continue focusing on 3 and 4. Especially 3, as family is important and the more we time we spend together, the more memories we will make. Children are only children for so long and we want to enjoy them as much as possible.

Go Back to School with Harvest Snaps #HarvestSnapsFan

This post was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. I have been compensated for this post in the form of product. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Looking for a healthy back to school snack for you and your children? Try Harvest Snaps ! Harvest Snaps come in six different flavors: Snapea Crisps Black Pepper, Snapea Crisps Lightly Salted, Snapea Crisps Wasabi, Snapea Crisps Caesar, Lentil Snaps Tomato Basil, Lentil Snaps Onion Time.

Our children really liked these snacks. I only got to try a couple and thought they were powdery tasting. It was a weird taste bud war going on, seriously, because I wanted to like them. Our youngest found the Green Peas Black Pepper flavored one hot, so he only liked the non-hot flavors. These made a great after school or before bedtime snack. Of course, I forgot to take photos of them snacking! Other ways I can see Harvest Snaps being used are: back-to-School lunchboxes, post-workout snack, lunch sides, crunchy salad toppings and for sports fans gameday snacks and tailgating events.

FFR Harvest Snaps_4

A Little Bit About Harvest Snaps

Here are some Harvest Snaps facts:

~ Snapea Crisps are made from 70% pea. Lentil Snaps are made from 65% lentil.
~ Harvest Snaps offers a healthier snacking option. They are baked, not fried.
~ Harvest Snaps are all-natural and guilt-free. Each of the 6 flavors are high fiber and protein, and low in sodium and fat.
~ These healthy treats are a great snack for the whole family, except my hubby did not try them. I think we forgot to ask him! Oops…
~ They are non-GMO.

We were able to review 6 of their products…and were pleased with everything! One thing we LOVED about the products is that they are SAFE and EFFECTIVE for the ENTIRE family! Yes … moms and dads can use this and it works great!!!

20140819_141003
Below I will highlight each of the products received and what we thought about them. But overall they were awesome!

Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash

Oatmilk-Calendula-Shampoo

 

 

 

 

This is an amazing product…especially for those with dry or sensitive skin. My daughter has eczema and it worked great on her skin. But I also used this product and I liked it too… although I do not suffer from dry skin… I do tend to get drier on my legs after bathing …and this worked great…no drying like I usually get! PLus, the scent is wonderful and do not forget their seal of Nutri-Soothe blend!

 

contains-seal

 

 

 

 

Moisturizing Baby Lotion

Oatmilk-Calendula-Lotion-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who says baby lotion can’t be for the whole family! This is a such a great product that we all started using it after bath time! It goes on smooth and absorbs well to hydrate the skin. Since there are no chemicals we never have to worry about irritants! This is a wonderful lotion suited for baby or the entire family!

 

contains-seal

 

 

 

 

Swim and Sport Shampoo & Wash

Cucumber-Aloe-Vera-Shampoo-2

 

 

 

This was by far our favorite product! My children are avid swimmers and swim at least twice a week in a chlorinated pool. We liked that this was a shampoo & wash specially formulated for swimmers and/or sports players. One thing the product does is removes chlorine… which was a plus for us! No more drying out of the hair…only hydration!

 

 

 

 

Swim & Sport Conditioner

swim-sport-smoothing-conditioner

 

 

 

 

This product is a great addition to your shampooing regimen after play or swim! Get ready for hydrated hair! No more dry feeling! I used this on my three children AND myself after swimming and boy does it make your hair feel good! I LOVE that it is natural …why use a chemical laden shampoo to get rid of chlorine…. go the natural route!

 

 

The next two products I did not get a chance to use because school has just started and my children have not gotten that dreaded “lice” letter yet… you know the one  I am talking about…”there has been a case of head lice reported in your child’s classroom” Ugh…makes me shudder! Well … shudder no more! There are two great products that will repel lice and make moms breathe a bit easier when that letter comes home!

 

Lice Repel Shampoo

Rosemary-Tea-Tree-Shampoo

 

 

 

I like this product because it is a preventative shampoo…use it before a lice letter even comes home. YOu can send your child to a sleepover or camp without worry if you use this first! If you get one of those dreaded letters use this shampoo to ward off the little pests!

 

 

 

 

Lice Repel Conditioning Spray

Rosemary-Tea-Tree-Spray-2

 

 

 

The final product and perhaps the most intriguing of all is the spray! This detangles , conditions and repels lice all at the same time! NO more worries about lice ending up in your home!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over all Babo botanicals are WONDERFUL products at a great competitive price in natural market! Check out their site and shop today you will not be displeased!

logos-no-gmos-2d

This is such a wonderful list it makes my heart smile knowing that I can bring healthy non-chemical laden product to my family!

We were pleased to receive and review the following products:

Kids Body Wash
Natural Detangler
Daily Spray Detangler
Peppermint foot lotion
Body Lotion
Turbinado Brown Sugar Scrub

20140807_153209

Let me start off by saying that the scent of these products is heavenly!! I always wonder and am pensive about the scent of organic products… but EVERY product I received is something that smells inviting … something I WANT to smell and lavish my hair and body!

Kids Body Wash

images

This product is a great addition to any household! We liked it because it comes in a larger size 16 oz size! Most of the time when I am shopping for organic natural shampoo I find it in an 8oz size…. this was a treat! It lathered well and has a pleasant orange Blossom scent. Most of all I liked that it is gentle on the skin. The product is also moisturizing which is an added plus! My youngest daughter has Eczema and since this product is not made with harsh chemicals or synthetic additives it has not made the Eczema flare up as other products can.

 

Natural Detangler

download

Let me tell you…I am always looking for a detangler for my hair (naturally wave to medium curl) and my daughters’ hair (thick and long). This is a great leave in deep conditioning/detangling option! I liked that the product does what it says… “effortlessly and easily” unravels tangles! It does this!!! My children take swim lessons every Monday and after they shower I like to brush out their hair…sometimes because of the harness of the chlorine their hair gets brittle and dry…and tangles easily! We like this product because it is easily portable in the jar that it comes in and it makes the hair easy to brush through. We have not only reserved the conditioner to swim days … but have made it part of our hair care regimen (yes even for mom…it worked wonders o my hair)!

Mom’s hair… I used this product and loved it on my hair…I am “air dry” styling type of person so this product worked great for me! Just put some on run a comb and fingers through my hair and I am good to go and my hair gets enriched with extra vitamins, proteins, and nutrients!

Daily Spray Detangler

download (1)

This is a STAPLE for kids hair… let me tell you that it is a hard to find a good detangler. This one is by far one of the best we have used! I LOVE that it comes in a large bottle…but would love it even more if it came in a travel size…so we could take it to the pool! Anyway… we Loved that the product has no harsh chemicals to strip and ruin the hair follicles… this is GREAT. Secondly the product reduces breakage while combing. While we sometimes have breakage due to knots in hair this product actually helped alleviate that issue. When used right after showering the hair is easily combed through and no breakage occurs… What a GREAT thing, no breakage helps keep hair healthy!

Peppermint Foot Lotion

 

download (3)What a YUMMY treat for your feet! This was so soothing and luxurious. I loved being able to try it! First off the scent is heavenly! Peppermint sooths and eases my tired feet and arouses my senses at the same time! It also began to moisturize and rescue my poor dry and callused feet. It penetrates the skin immediately and goes to work… I like that it has a nice feel and does not leave my hands slimy… I have had experience with other foot lotions where the product was soooo slimy/greasy I had to wipe my hands with a towel afterwards because it just would not absorb.

Body Lotion

 

 

Natural Body Lotion

download (6)This lotion was also a quick to absorb into the skin! Can you tell I am a fan of quick absorption? I love it when a lotion goes on smooth and actually hydrates and moisturizes the skin instead of just sitting on top of the skin! This lotion is wonderful! It comes in a large pump container, which is great!!! It makes it easy to pump and apply after the shower! The scent is heavenly…it has a sweet orange blossom smell with other blended flowers that makes this lotion double as a wonderful aromatic experience!

Turbinado Brown Sugar Scrub

download (4)Can you say INDULGENT??? This is such a luxurious addition to any shower ritual! … I LOVE body scrubs because they exfoliate and moisturize the skin leaving it soft and supple! This product does just that with NATURAL/ORGANIC ingredients! (YEAH!) This scrub has replaced my old Burt’s Bees Scrub … which I though was good…boy was I wrong this is SO MUCH BETTER! What about the scent?

 

 

 

natural-organic-4d

What about price? The Just Naturals line of products are VERY well priced for organic/natural products… they offer larger sizes for a great price! At a farmers market or retail store you cannot get the larger sizing or the QUALITY!!!

 

 

Please take a moment to visit justnaturalskincare.com you will not be displeased! Their products are SO awesome I cannot wait to try other items from their product line.

Chiquita!

FFR image for posts

 

download (1)

What comes to mind when you think of the word Chiquita??? Bananas of course! But I am here to tell you that the Chiquita brand is MUC HMORE than bananas! It is a whole variety of snacks and good things with fruits!

Chiquita sent us a bunch of products to try! They were great! So great that they got eaten REALLY fast in our house! We took the snack packs to a local firework show and shared with friends and family whose children thought they were equally yummy and fantastic!

The best part of the products we received is that the larger (multi-size) packs can be resealed and the smaller individual packs are hand sized and easily opened and eaten!

Here is what we reviewed:

Family Pack Green Apple Bites and Red Apple Bites

download (2)

download (3)

This family pack was great because it allowed us to open and reseal the bag! This is a great option if you want to buy in bulk and reseal for later. For the purpose of this review we ate a few apples from the family pack and resealed and ate the rest later. Normally our family would devour the entire family pack as we LOVE apples. However, the resealing worked great! the children were able to open and reseal with ease as was mom! The fruit inside stayed fresh and moist with the reseal option so this was good…also no browning!

 

The next product we reviewed was:

download (4)

These little bags are AWESOME!!! Although we reviewed these in summer and found they are GREAT for picnics…I must say I will be buying them for school lunches this year! What a wonderful alternative to chips in the lunchbox! The packaging is easy to open and provides 1/2 cup of fruit for little tummies!

Finally…

download (5)

These were by far the favorite…of course who does not like a dose of caramel with their apples! LOL! We loved these…they went fast at our firework picnic! Although … being at a picnic …at night… the caramel apples was probably not the best option because the caramel got everywhere and stuck to little hands because it was dark out and all we had for light were a few glow sticks. BUT…in normal picnic pr lunch situations … THESE ARE GREAT!!! The caramel cup is small and individual and the apples are yummy. We have tried competitor brand apples and caramel dip where the dip package was attached to the apple container and that always made a mess because when you pulled the tab to open the caramel it either flung the apples out of the package or the caramel dripped. THESE ARE SEPARATE and AWESOME… I like these 10 times better than the ones I used to buy since the caramel container is a separate “sauce” that comes inside the apple bites… it lets the caramel REMAIN separate from the apples and it opens with ease and no dripping (unless you tipped it over LOL)

OVERALL… I was very please to review these products … they will most certainly be purchased for the upcoming school year and packed into lunches! Way to go Chiquita!!!!

Our review:

This is a neat little product! My son suffers from allergies and we usually use an over the counter medication like Zyrtec or Claratin. However after giving this a try I must say it is a nice homeopathic option to the regular pharmaceutical options.

My son said this tasted good and it was better than the chewable pills he usually takes…so that was a plus. You ask… did it work? YES IT DID!!!! I am very happy to report that this worked on all his allergy symptoms. The only downside was that it was not as fast acting as the pills he usually takes but it did work! He did not see immediate relief but he did see relief. The product says to use every 8 hours… so not too bad, so to get continual relief we had to use 3 times a day…compared to our once a day pill.

I like the homeopathic option much better than a pharmaceutical pill that is laden with medicines. This is a much more natural option. THAT WORKS!!!! I have to admit that I was skeptical at first but knowing that homeopathic remedies can work I tried the product and was PLEASED!

Natural Mosquito Repellent – Do You Use it?

Re-posted from July 2013.

I don’t know what it’s like where you live but here the mosquitoes are horrendous. We don’t like to use chemical laden insect repellents. We tend to rely on a natural mosquito repellent, like our essential oils. I’ve taken to putting the essential oil Purification on at the beginning of my paper route and while it does not work 100%, it does deter many of these pesky creatures. We have also used cedarwood, peppermint and lavender.

Mike the Gardener had a little article on what to plant in your garden to repel mosquitoes and I sure wish we had got our lemongrass and marigolds planted! Our daughter did plant a pot of catnip for the cats, which has sprouted. That was more to keep the cats down at the barn rather than at the house – they think they are house cats and try to get inside! But they have a job to do down at the barn – rodent patrol – so we want them to stay down there. Our children love those cats and started feeding them at the patio door and guess where they camped our and hung around? Yep, the patio door! Or any door for that matter. We nipped that in the butt by telling them to stop feeding the cats at the house or the mice would take over!

So do you have a natural remedy to combat the mosquitoes? Have you ever grown your own natural mosquito repellent?
