On April 22nd we celebrate Earth Day, and with that a little insect that makes a big impact on the environment – honey bees.
Honey is one of the longest lasting, and also versatile products that are available. One of my favorite uses of honey are in facial products and body products. The healing properties of honey are second to none and the versatility unmatched.
Savannah Bee Company is different in that they are not only making the products but also raising and caring for the bees that provide them the honey and royal jelly used.
Salba Chia: Dark Chocolate Chia Seeds Review & Giveaway
As a review blogger I am always on the hunt for new and innovative products that combine health and sweetness. Hands down one of my favorite sweet things is Dark Chocolate. That is not to say that there is anything wrong with milk chocolate but there is something decadent and luxurious about this darker chocolate.
When I attended the Natural Products Expo in March, one of the things that I discovered were Dark Chocolate Salba Chia Seeds from Salba Smart Natural Products. I have been thinking about these ever since, and I knew that full review was needed.

There are companies that sell honey based products but not like Savannah Bee Company. The thing that makes Savannah Bee different is that they are not only making the products but also raising and caring for the bees that provide them the honey and royal jelly used.
During the winter holidays there are certain scents that are synonymous with the winter holidays – these can be cranberry, apples, mint to name a few.
One of my favorite scents is lemon, and while not usually associated with the winter months, it is a strong citrus fresh scent that can good any season. There is something fresh and citrus can awaken the senses and cheer a person up on an otherwise gloomy day.
In these otherwise cedar and cranberry-apple filled days, I am thrilled to be able to bring you a fresh and versatile citrus set with this Simply Lemons.

Often times there are moments that I will see a creature in nature and be in absolute awe and when I see Bees, I have this moment.
Sometimes I wonder if their is nothing that these miracles workers can’t do. They work in in a hive mentality, with the goal of keeping the queen safe. The was is produced on the side of a bees abdomen and is only produced when their is nectar flow. To product the was the bees get together to increase their temperature and thus wax is produced (amazing huh!?).
When I was approached about giving a bag of US Organic’s Organic Beeswax Yellow Pastilles, I was curious to learn more about this natural wax.

Savannah Bee: Honey Lavender Handmade Bar Soap Review and Giveaway
Regular readers will know that I love soap and I love honey. The uses for honey products are as vast as they are amazing. There is medicinal honey which helps wounds and various injuries and there is food grade honey that is used in many popular recipes. Honey can be used on sore throats, burns, and bacterial infections.
My personal favorite use of honey is in soap. Honey is naturally an anti-microbial and when added to soap this makes the soap also anti-microbial. The other natural benefit of honey is that it is a humectant which basically means it retains and attracts moisture in the hair and skin.
I had the chance last year to review a couple of items by Savannah Bee Company and loved them. I was curious to try some more of their products and they were generous to send us a couple of products to review.
Lafe’s Natural BodyCare: Active Twist Stick Review and Giveaway
As a native San Diegian, it is a rare day where the temperature becomes unbearable. These past couple of weeks it has been record-setting hot.
There is something that I should tell you is that I do not handle heat well and neither does my body. Sadly when the heat index rises, so does my sweat levels. This can be embarrassing, since I am not a gal that likes to have any adverse odor coming from my region. I am sensitive and I am picky when it comes to my personal hygiene. Despite my pickiness I am always open to trying something new and different, as with the case with Lafe’s Natural BodyCare Deodorants. Continue reading →
