For this week’s dos para el martes, I have some photos of horses at the beach. This is sometimes what Virginia Beach, Virginia looks like in the off season.
I know some bloggers do the “Oprah-thing” and post their “favorite products of the year” (and I really enjoy those kind of posts – well not if they have too many ads and too many linked affiliates, but those posts can be so informative).
I am not sure if I will get to create one of those posts this month, but maybe I could start with sharing two products that I have loved this year:
Product A: Kleen Green (here):
I first heard about Kleen Green back in 2002 when I was on the curezone forum.
I had no idea what everyone was raving about…. until – I used the product for myself.
Kleen Green is an enzyme cleaner that is also an air purifier, bug killer, and it is SAFE for gardens, plants, ponds and around children and pets!
It is a “must have” household product. Kleen Green is non- toxic. It is so natural and gentle that pregnant woman can use it (it is all enzymes, baby). It can also be sprayed in the car, on the body, and used on pets. Our black Lab says, “Woof, thanks for the Kleen Green woof – it makes my coat shiny and clean.”
The horse photos actually reminded me of the KG enzyme product because I think the owner of this company has an equine background. I believe the formulas began with horse care. Not sure, but I AM sure that we need more all-natural products like this – because in today’s heavy toxic world – the little things we do can make a big difference.
Product B: NOW Foods Pure Lanolin
I could have picked a different item for my second share, but went with NOW foods pure lanolin because it is also all-natural and can be used for personal use, pet care, horse care – and it is so safe that nursing mothers can actually use lanolin for their chest, hands, lips, etc (safe for baby – safe for adults). We have been using pure lanolin since I first bought some as a nursing momma back in the 1990s. Usually we would whip it out during the winter and it makes a great lip balm (all natural and powerfully soothes) and because it is pure lanolin – there are no perfume odors or chemicals. It is more of a barrier and a little goes a long way.
Pure LANOLIN is also so great because it is effective for protecting and healing the skin. (And in summer 2015, The Profit partnered with a company that was started by a woman loved lanolin and wanted to share this with others – info here).
There is a time for coconut oil. There is time for plant lipids.
There is a time for Shea butter, jojoba, glycerin, castor oil, or maybe even a mineral oil…. and then there is a time when lanolin is the remedy. I am getting some of the small pure lanolin containers to use as stocking stuffers (Medela makes them and they are really small – like 0.3oz small).
In closing, every home needs some pure lanolin – and the nicely priced (around 10 US dollars) NOW Foods jumbo container is win-win-win.
Have a doubly nice Tuesday –
