Deal of the Week: Miracle Salve

Thursday, July 28, 2011

After using Miracle Salve on my family for almost a year now, I am confident that it will be a blessing to yours!

This is a wonderful product for minor scrapes, burns, cuts, stings, bites, sores, rashes, eczema, dry skin, and more. At our house it is the go-to remedy for every skin-related issue that arises. I appreciate it that this one product can do so much, instead of needing to purchase many different items for specific ailments. My children appreciate that it does not have a strong scent like some herbal skin salves do. :)

The coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil are moisturizing, and soothe and heal rashes and scrapes. Coconut oil is especially helpful for eczema and other skin rashes caused by yeast overgrowth. Olive oil is a wonderful moisturizer because it manages to allow your skin to still do all of it's normal things (sweat, shed dead skin cells, release sebum) even though it is moisturizing as well. The antioxidant properties of olive oil make it additionally beneficial to your body as well.

The beeswax gives the salve a good consistency even in the hot summer months, and it provides a protective barrier as your skin heals.

Plantain is a wonderful herb that is effective for all types of stings and bites from insects.

Comfrey is especially suited to healing cuts and scrapes. It is also an astringent that soothes and helps calm inflammation and bruising.

Propolis is another excellent ingredient that helps with abrasions, gum infections, eczema, acne, skin cancers, bruises, and burns.

Lavender essential oil is emotionally calming, plus hastens the healing of burns and minor cuts.

Rosemary essential oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties and is soothing to sore muscles.

Although this wonderful salve can do so many things, it manages to last a really long time. The two-ounce size is great for keeping in the diaper bag, back pack, or purse, for all of those small injuries that happen away from home. The 4 ounce size is perfect for everyday use at home.

Normally the 2 ounce size is $15 and the 4 ounce size is $25, but this week you can get them for just $11.80 and $19.69! Sale price through next Wednesday, August 3.

Deals of the Week July 14-20, 2011

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Two timely products on special this week!

Did you know that you can actually help your kids (or yourself!) prevent head lice? My Supermom's No-Lice Hair and Body Spray has a pleasant peppermint scent, but is made from a combination of herbs that lice and other pests hate! Perfect for spritzing on hair before your child goes out to school, camp, sports activities, and church. Normally $19.95, on sale this week for just $10.95! Now is the time to make sure you are stocked up before the new school year. This product keeps for a long, long time when stored in the refrigerator.

So many parents asked me for a natural, non-toxic way to keep mosquitoes and other pests away. Now we have it!

This all-natural product will keep those pesky insects away from you and your family, without harmful chemicals.

Bug Stuff is a solid bar that's convenient to rub on your skin. No sprays or messy liquids! It comes in a tube with a cap, sort of like a deodorant container. So it's easy to carry in your purse, car, diaper bag, or back pack. At a nice sale price this week.

Deal of the Week: Vitamin D3

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I am seeing it more and more: news reports letting us know that vitamin D3 is an incredibly valuable and important vitamin for fighting disease and keeping our immune systems strong. Well, this week you can stock up on this normally very affordable supplement at an even lower price! The small gel caps are easy even for children to take. Mine eat these like tiny jelly beans. :)

In addition, I had some people tell me they were on vacation and didn't have time to take advantage of the SuperDad vitamin deal from last week. So, I am going to let that deal stay active for this week as well. A great opportunity since you save $12 on each bottle right now!

Raw Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Friday, July 01, 2011

I've been doing some raw food making tonite to get a jump on things. I whipped up this batch of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and thought I would share the recipe with you since it doesn't take any complicated equipment or ingredients. Enjoy!

1 cup pitted dates, soak in some pure water for about an hour+ before you want to make this. Drain off but save the water before making the cookie dough.
2 cups quick oats
2 teaspoons cinnamon
about a cup of raisins, dried cranberries, other dried fruit, or if you're really going crazy, chocolate chips, carob chips, or cacao nibs

If you have a strong and mighty food processor, you might be able to get away with throwing all of the ingredients together and just whizzing it all up. If you have a finicky food processor, then try something like this:

Put drained dates into your food processor and chop them up as smoothly as you can realistically do with your machine. Add in the oats and cinnamon and continue to whiz it all up, adding some of the reserved water from the date soaking as needed. You want it to be wet enough to be able to smoosh the dough into cookie shapes. Not too wet to have the stuff hold together. If you have a smaller processor you may have to do this in batches.

Once you've got it all mixed, you've got options. :) You can form cookie shaped patties, little treat balls, or if you're in a hurry or looking for convenience just pour it into a 9"x9" pan and later you can cut it into whatever size cookie bars you need. These are quite tasty!
