Zion Health/Adama Minerals – Ancient Clay Body Care

Don’t you love it when you discover new companies that have products you didn’t know you couldn’t live without? This recently happened to me when I learned about Zion Health. They were kind enough to send me products to review, and once again, I am in love. Yes, I know I fall in love a lot with my beauty products, but I am ALWAYS honest when it comes to expressing my passion for these items.

Zion Health specializes in ancient clay body care. They use an ingredient called Kanwa, which has been around for centuries and can be found in the clay of the Palm Desert.  It has an abundance of detoxifying and nutrient rich minerals that make in an ideal ingredient for natural skincare products. The company started out making toothpaste and has since expanded to feature an array of wonderful items.

If you are an avid reader of mine, you know how much I enjoy natural products, and how I believe they are the best for my husband’s eczema.  When you suffer from eczema you tend to use an abundance of products looking for the best relief. I have found many wonderful products since I started blogging and am happy to add  Ancient Repair Healing Cream to my husband’s (and mine when needed) skin care regime. This healing cream is packed with amazing ingredients, such as tea tree and eucalyptus oils for relief of extra dry itchy skin.

So here is the thing, he will scratch scratch scratch till he is sore and bleeding. It pains me to see him suffer. He used this healing cream over his itchy spots and it provided immediate relief and soothing.  It is a clay like substance that you spread over the spots, it is very thick and dries to a grayish consistency. It is healing and protecting his skin, no more itching.  I am so grateful that I received this product for him!

I got a little something for myself too! Their Minerals Mango Lip balm is heavenly. The mango scent is so natural smelling and so true to an actual mango it feels like I am spreading mango puree on my lips except for that fact that it glides on smooth and silky and makes my lips feel hydrated and lovely.

I love scented everything, especially fruity scents. I never would have thought of throwing orange and vanilla together but I am glad Zion Health did because it is such a heavenly smell. This is the scent of their Mineral Moisture Daily Lotion. The lotion not only smells good but hydrates my skin. I think I am going to need a larger bottle!

I also received their all natural River Spring Ancient Clay soap. The ingredients feature the Kanwa clay, shea butter, edible coconut, olive oil, mandarin and green tea extract essential oils. It smells delicious, it’s also vegan and gluten free so feel free to take a bite. Okay, I am kidding, don’t eat it because then you will miss out on how soft and clean your skin will feel after bathing with it.

Emu Oil –

Emu what? Yes, Emu Oil. I never heard of this before until I came across this through InstaNatural and noticed the description said it reduced inflammation. My husband has eczema and I am always looking for products to soothe his skin and help his swollen red patches. Poor guy. I thought, hey it can’t hurt to try this to. All I can say is WOW.  I received this on a day where his eczema was out of control, so many swollen red patches of dry skin. I rubbed this into his skin and was surprised that even though it was an oil, it absorbed quickly and left his skin feeling soft.

I honestly didn’t have any expectations for this, I just thought hey another oil to help relieve his symptoms isn’t going to hurt anything.  24 hours later I took another look at his skin and I was amazed. ALL the swelling was gone, the bright red patches were now only slightly red. I’ve never seen a product work so quickly and efficiently on his skin. I put more on that day and it looked even better the next day, after four days of Emu Oil on his eczema most of it was gone except the extremely bad patches but even those looked a million times better. This is going to have to be a main staple in my house to keep my husband happy and help relieve his suffering.  Seriously, if you have eczema or even really dry skin you HAVE to try this! Find it HERE on Amazon.com

Vitamin C Toner-

Vitamin C is all the rage in the beauty world right now, I have a few vitamin C serums that my skin loves so I was excited to try a toner!

This smells very natural, almost floral with a hint of citrus. I like that it comes in a spray bottle for easy application. Just spritz spritz and rub a cotton ball over your face and viola! All toned up!

So what does it do? The 100% all natural ingredients cleans and shrinks your pores with the power of witch hazel and tea tree oil. Vitamin C helps your body produce collagen that will leaves your face feeling supple and increase elasticity.  And it’s perfect for hydrating and prepping your skin for the rest of your beauty routine, it will actually increase the effectiveness of  your serums and lotions! Not to mention all the anti-aging properties. You can find it HERE on Amazon.com

Moroccan Rose Water Toner-

Doesn’t this just sound lovely? Rose water for your face. Let me tell you it SMELLS like roses, so if you don’t like the way roses smell, well that’s okay because it fades off quickly so just suck it up because it’s worth it.

100% natural and all pure, no artificial fragrance or preservatives, those are real roses your smelling.

This will calm skin irritations, such as sun burns. It’s great for all skin types, and this is another great toner to prep your face for your beauty routine.

You can also use this on your hair to make it soft and shiny. So wake up and smell the roses ladies because this toner is the bees knees. Find it HERE on Amazon.com

Apothecary Tea Tree Oil – A Must Have!

I recently received a bottle of tea tree oil to review and honestly blogging about this is a no brainer.

teatree

Tea Tree oil isn’t something new, it’s been around for hundreds of years and it should be a staple in every home.

What’s the big deal about Tea Tree oil you might ask? I’ve personally used it for helping heal my breakouts, soothing burnt skin and on my scalp to help relieve dry scalp and dandruff.

Have you noticed how expensive Tea Tree oil shampoos are? I made my own by simply putting 10 drops into my favorite shampoo and I use it a couple times a week to keep my scalp healthy.

A few uses for tea tree oil: Minor cuts, acne, air freshener, athletes foot, bruises, blisters, dry skin, flea bites, ear aches, lice (will not only kill lice but repel them as well), inflammation, eczema, nail fungus, insect repellent, soar throat and sunburn.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. The Tea Tree oil that I am featuring in my blog is great because it comes with an e-book that not only lists its multiple uses it also shares recipes for DIY cures for your ailments.

It comes in a 4fl oz bottle and it will last you a long time. If you don’t have tea tree oil in your house I highly recommend purchasing this HERE on Amazon.com.

100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil – This Stuff is Awesome!

Argan oil is all the rage lately and for good reason. This all natural oil is great for your hair, skin and nails.

Moroccan Argan oil is full of fatty acids that helps restore dull skin, dry hair, dry skin and my personal favorite, cuticles.

I have long thick hair that tends to frizz, I rub a couple drops of this onto my palm and smooth it throughout my hair, it tames down the frizz for the rest of the day.

I rub this on my husbands eczema, it calms his skin and moisturizers his dry patches. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky or oily residue. You can see and feel the difference instantly.

I keep this next to my bed stand and rub my hands and cuticles with it everyday, I am rough on my nails and don’t spend a lot of time maintaining them, this helps me to get rid of those little hang nails and rough cuticles.

I believe this is a must for every household, it is affordable and because you don’t need much, it will last you a long time.

Purchase your own Argan oil HERE on Amazon.com, if you don’t like it they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee, but I trust you will love it as much as I do.

Nami Naturals – Natural and Unrefined Raw Shea Butter

I had wanted to try raw Shea Butter for a long time to help my husband who suffers from eczema. Going the all natural route for skin issues in my opinion just made more sense that buying a chemically infused product to help relieve his symptoms.

It arrived in a nice package, the butter came packaged in 2 individually wrapped 8oz packages. Each package was triple wrapped to ensure quality.

I was NOT disappointed at all, quite excited actually. I slathered a piece of raw butter right onto his dry spots and instantly you can see the moisture difference in his skin. His scaly dry spots disappeared leaving a nice and soft, non-greasy texture. The next day I went to reapply the Shea butter and could already tell the difference in his skin. He said he felt instant relief; it soothed his skin and relieved the itching.

After reading other reviews, I was skeptical about how it would smell. However, it didn’t smell bad at all. It has natural nutty smell that I didn’t mind. If you don’t like the smell, not to worry, it fades quickly.

SHEA BUTTER
It is summertime and flip flops are my essential go to footwear, but wearing them everyday wreaks havoc on my feet. I started using this on my dry cracked heels and I am already seeing a difference.

The best part about this Shea butter is its unlimited uses, you can easily warm some up, add your favorite essential oil and whip it up into a nice lotion. Add coconut oil as well for an amazing texture.

I really don’t see a point of buying any more expensive body butters and lotions when I can EASILY, and I can’t stress the word easy enough… make my OWN lotion!

You can also make shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, salves, lip balms, hand creams, and much more.
