Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Trillium Organics - Face Polish
Zuhay 12/4/2012 11:39:00 AM
I have such admiration for Trillium Organics. This has become my favorite line of body products. Their commitment to USDA Certification ensures that you are getting nothing but the finest in terms of ingredients. A close friend recommended this Face Polish to me describing it as "a face lift in a jar". Really???? How was I suppose to not experiment with a recommendation like that? I purchased the Advanced Face Polish in Primrose and Cranberry Wrinkle Relief Cleanser and have been delighted with the results. My single favorite aspect about this polish is that it serves 3 functions. You are cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing in one step! And as far as anti-aging goes it has anti-inflammatory Neroli which supports aging skin and antioxidant Rose which fights wrinkles naturally. I have used this polish quickly to exfoliate and moisturize and I have also left it on for 5 minutes as a mask when I want an extra treatment. It works simply amazing. I smooth it all the way down my neck to get the benefits there as well. My skin looks noticeably better and I have had no adverse affects (acne breakouts or over-drying skin are always a risk for me). My skin has a healthy glow and a prominent forehead wrinkle appears slightly less visible in just a matter of weeks. It's almost like the product is so moisturizing it works like a "filler" on wrinkles for lack of a better description. I simply cannot say enough positive things about this product other than simply try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
I couldn't agree more with the previous reviewer, there really is no delicate way to review to this product. No matter how you cut it is simply awkward at best.... None the less it warrants review and rave reviews at that. I have been using Summers Eve for years despite the fact that I dislike what aerosol sprays do to the environment not to mention that Summers Eve is FAR FROM AN ALL NATURAL PRODUCT. When I heard that Indigo Wild had released a comparable product I couldn't wait to try it. Needless to say with a brand that hold itself to the highest of standards I was not disappointed. Zum Bum is simply AMAZING. It is made with Witch Hazel, Vegetable Glycerin and Pure Essential Oils. This product isn't only for woman who want to stay fresh, I've told male friends about it and they are loving it as well. Granted it holds a greater appeal for females but it's not called Zum BUM for nothing..... I would give this product more than five stars if I could. I keep one in my bathroom and carry one in my purse.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Rhiamon Chakra Balancing Roll-On / I Love
Zuhay 10/8/2012 3:09:00 AM
The Seven Chakra Balancing Blends in order are: I Belong, I Feel, I Can, I Love, I Speak, I See and I Am. I am going to review the Chakra Blend I am using at the moment – I Love – This Balancing Blend focuses on our Fourth Chakra and assisting us with the Energetic Template Joy and representing our relationship with others and our love/compassion for humanity. I am using this oil as suggested on my corresponding Chakra (chest center). I also use it on pulse points and often take the cap off the perfume and inhale whenever I feel like I am going to be dealing with a negative, aggressive or potentially confrontational situation. I use it when I want to bring a feeling of love with me to negate negative energy. I have also found it helpful to use right before dealing with patients or individuals that I know are going through a difficult time. I find this oil most helpful in keeping me from absorbing negativity I am exposed to and diffusing difficult situations by remaining calmer than I would without its use. Essential Oils – Rose, Ylang-Ylang and Bergamont. Gem/Flower Essences – Emerald, Ruby and Diamond. India, Japan and China have been using all natural, energetic ways of healing the body and mind for thousands of years. I am of the opinion that we in the Western World would do well to experiment with the various wonderful products that are finally available to us until we find the alternative treatment that best meets our individual needs. I plan on trying all of the Rhiamon Chakra Balancing Blends and look forward to working on my commitment to establishing a healthier connection between my mind, body and spirit.
I have been using Clear Away Essential Spray by Rhiamon for over a year now and can't imagine not having a bottle on hand in my office and home at all times. I have recently started using Rhiamon's Chakra Balancing Roll On Blends with delightful results. These Roll On Blends go on as an Aromatherapy Fragrance. In addition to smelling wonderfully they each work on a corresponding Chakra. At the moment I am using I Am - Seventh Chakra. The Essential Oils used in this Roll On are Rosewood, Cardamom and Petitgrain Sur Fluer (scent is heavenly). I use this Chakra Blend to instil Peace and Tranquility. The Roll On's are convenient for pulse point application or scent inhalation, so whenever I am feeling stressed or simply want to feel more centered I pull the Roll On out of my purse and either swipe it across my wrist and inhale or inhale directly from the bottle (usually I do both since I love having the fragrance on my wrist for continued calming benefits). The Dr. Oz Beauty Website You Beauty wrote an amazing article about Aromatherapy and included a product review on these specific Chakra Balancing Blends. Here's a quote "Just a whiff of the oils can impact your limbic system, which connects to parts of your brain controlling breath, heart rate, blood pressure, hormone balance and yes stress". I love that the mainstream media is FINALLY seeing the benefits of alternative treatments for mind, body and soul.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - OGMind Botanical Perfume Rest
Zuhay 7/29/2012 4:09:00 PM
It would appear that Trillium Organics is one of Natures best kept secrets. This wonderful line of USDA Certified Organic products is barely talked about and not easy to find in retail stores. It is however one of those product lines that one person using it recommends to their loved ones and they in turn do the same (word of mouth is how I heard about it & I in turn now have my sister using it based on what I have told her about it). I've reviewed one other OGMind scent and the idea behind OGMind is Mind over Matter! Aromatherapy Perfume for focused Manifestation. OGMind Rest is for relaxation & stress relief. The ingredients are OG Jojoba Oil , Blue Chamomile Oil, Neroli Oil, Lavender Oil, Vanilla Absolute Oil and Rose Absolute Oil. This oil smells simply divine, it can easily be worn all day as a perfume for those who choose to do so. I have chosen to use it before bed and "focus" on relaxation. I apply it to my temple, wrists and neck and then spend a few minutes focusing on relaxing and breathing in the relaxing, healing properties of these essential oils. I can't begin to tell you how helpful I find this botanical perfume. We often tend to forget to nurture ourselves the way we should, the concept of a botanical perfume for focused manifestation is simply brilliant. A magnificent scent with healing benefits. I plan on working my way through the entire line of Trillium Botanical Perfumes.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - OGMind Botanical Perfumes - Love
Zuhay 7/18/2012 10:02:00 AM
OK I have to start out by saying that I am beyond delighted to have found this product on Amazon! I have been trying to buy it directly from the Manufacturer (Trillium Organics) for over a month and they have been sold out! I originally purchased OGSoul - Love and adored it (read other review of mine). This is also about love but A VERY DIFFERENT CONCEPT AND A TOTALLY DIFFERENT SCENT. The idea behind OGMind is Mind over Matter! Aromatherapy Perfume for Focused Manifestation! The ingredients are OG Jojoba Oi, Cinnamon Oil, Patchouli Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil, Clove Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Rosemary Oil. This blend of essential oils smells simply divine. It is complicated in that it will keep whoever is smelling it guessing. I was able to detect the sandalwood and patchouli immediately but never would have imagined the oil to be as complex as it is. The ingredients compliment one another and clearly have been chosen to enhance feelings of love. In my opinion a MUST TRY.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - OGSoul Botanical Perfume - Love
Zuhay 7/16/2012 11:04:00 PM
OGSoul Botanical Perfume - Love is made by Trillium Organics a line of products that is USDA Certified Organic. I love how pure this line of products is, the quality is so superior that it truly sets a standard. I have used other Trillium products and loved them and just about passed out when I heard they released a perfume line. The concept is "aromatherapy for everyday". These perfumes are exactly that, aromatherapy!!! Each one has a different function in terms of what senses it stimulates. No one can dispute that certain odors are stimulating while others are relaxing.... Trillium has mastered these combinations in terms of creating beautiful scents that also serve a spiritual function. Love is a blend of OG Jojoba Oil , Sandalwood Oil, OG Vanilla Oil & Rose Oil used to attract love into your life. This isn't hocus pocus, these are sensual scents that make you feel attractive and when you feel attractive you attract others into your life! This line carries a scent for almost everything. I am not familiar with all of them but I know they have Warmth, Comforting, Play, Calming, Rest, Romance and more. They are carried as OGSoul, OGBody and OGMind (each scent focusing on a specific area). Just amazing!
I've reviewed Kate's Magik before because I fully believe in the concept of alternative healing techniques. For those of you who haven't read my previous reviews Kate is a Reiki Master Teacher who has developed pure essential oil blends to help people overcome everyday struggles. I can only speak for myself but I find life challenging and I seek the relief, comfort and confidence that these products provide (so I use almost all of them depending on my current situation). Fearlessness & Confidence is an Anointing Oil that I consistently find myself seeking. The purpose of it is to help fight fear and insecurity. While providing the motivation and courage needed to conquer challenges. Challenges are thrown at me left and right, when I find myself ducking, I sneak away to a quiet place (a restroom will do if nothing else is available and anoint myself with this oil - this oil is meant to be applied on Chakra: #3- Solar Plexus: Center of Will, Truth, Self. #1- Base/Root: Grounding). Scent: Luscious Moroccan Vanilla with a kick of spicy ginger. We tend to forget that the history of essential oils dates back to ancient times. They were used to treat everything from medical conditions to mental illness. In my opinion there is no disputing the benefits of each of Kate's Magik's Anointing Oils.
I've been using Kate's Magik for a while now. I started using it because I picked up a brochure for it at wholefoods and was immediately drawn to the concept of alternative healing techniques. I loved that the founder "Kate" is a Reiki Master Teacher and the more I read the more I realized that this is someone who is dedicated to using pure essential oils to help people overcome everyday challenges. And much to her credit she has developed an anointing oil for almost any need/difficulty you can think of (I use several and will have to do reviews one at a time). Right now I want to talk about one of my favorite products, her Purification & Protection Aura Mist. This mist is intended to cleanse your atmosphere and eliminate negativity. Kate suggests you use it to create a peaceful, safe and spiritual environment. I suffer from horrible insomnia. One of my many favorite uses for this product is spraying my pillow about half an hour before I go to bed. The scent of these essential oils is so soothing and relaxing that it really does facilitate sleep! I've grown so accustomed to it that I bring a bottle with me when traveling. Active Ingredients: Lavender, Sandalwood, Frankincense and other pure essential oils. This line of products is one that I wish I could just share with everyone!
Other -Unlisted Brand - Clear Away Essential Spray by Rhiamon Energy Essentials
Zuhay 6/25/2012 12:52:00 PM
Clear Away Essential Spray is a unique blend of organic essential oils of grapefruit, sage, lemon and peppermint used to provide a unique feeling of calm and purity that brings inner peace, restoring your inner balance. I keep one on my desk at work and one at home. They have a purse size travel one that I haven't bought because I don't know that I would be able to resist spraying it in some people's faces (just kidding - kinda of). In all honesty this product works. I may not be able to explain the mechanics of how it works but I know from experience that it does. There is simply something very calming about this combination of essential oils. Apparently, I am not the only one who think so... Wholefoods Associates tell me it is one of their better selling products. Well worth a try.
CD/Books/Movies -Unlisted Brand - Say Her Name by Fransico Goldman
Zuhay 6/24/2012 4:13:00 AM
Say Her Name by Francisco Goldman - Is a must read, just make sure you have a box of tissue paper on hand because you will cry your eyes out. A heartbreaking memoir of a young woman's life cut far too short and how the man who loved her tries to cope with the emptiness left by her absence. This book is a testament to the passion of a great love. Every woman should be so fortunate as to have been loved at least once in her life as Mr. Goldman loved his wife. Written with beautiful prose and brutal honesty. One must admire the authors courage in sharing his grief and hope that it was at least minimally cathartic for him.
Trillium's Organic Body Butter in Soothing Lavender Lavandin is an organic body butter made with organic shea butter and cocoa butter and an experience you simply do not want to miss out on. It is antibacterial; promotes relaxation and healing; relieves dry, oily, or irritated skin, dermatitis, eczema, stretch marks, arthritis, fatigue, and muscle aches.Ok so what doesn't it do?? It doesn't contain broad spectrum anti microbials such as parabens , phenoxyethanol, or other alcohols. Here's what it has done for me; I've broken out in a rash/allergic reaction to "something". My allergist has had me changing detergent and soap, taking prednisone and antihistamines. My skin still looked and felt horrible. Since I have been using this cream the symptoms have not completely gone away but I have noticed a "marked" improvement. Not to mention that the benefits to the areas of my skin that were not affected by the allergies have been even more noticeable. I have been really fortunate lately to have come across body care products that are truly raising the bar in organic/all natural care. See also my reviews on Inesscents Magic Mango Butter and Sudanese Coconut & Vanilla Cocoa Cream. I am hard pressed to choose between these products but for therapeutic purposes I highly recommend Trillium's Organic Body Butter.
Nemat is a favorite of mine for essential oil perfumes. Having said that it is bar none my absolute favorite for it's selection of Musk's. It has a beautiful selection of Musk scents ranging from light and soothing to rich and deeply exotic. Himalayan Musk is one of the more light musks. It goes on sweet and earthy with a definite moss base note. This scent is light, fresh, clean and just "feel good". It is also wonderful for layering with other scents (I happen to love experimenting with these little oils and there is no end to the fun when you apply one over another). I have gotten so many compliments when I've layered my oils and so many raised eyebrows when I've explained what I'm wearing.
I don't know if I really need to write a review about a Cocoa Butter in Sudanese Coconut & Vanilla. Doesn't the description say it all? At the risk of sounding redundant I will rave about this product anyway. It is simply magnificent. The cocoa butter is made from the seeds of the cacao fruit, which are also used to make chocolate! It is extremely rich in fatty acids which leave your skin feeling soft and looking lustrous. It is also one of the highest known antioxidants working to destroy free radical damage and slow down that wicked aging process (can I buy this in bulk?). Ingredients Are: Organic and raw cocoa butter, unrefined shea butter, organic jojoba oil, organic almond oil, coconut attar and vanilla absolute. The benefits of this product are extraordinarily and the scent is heavenly. Also look for my review on Inesscents Magic Mango Butter in Rose Sandalwood. I alternate between the two of them depending on my mood.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Kate's Magik Break Patterns & Addictions
Zuhay 6/17/2012 10:28:00 PM
I had to add this product because it was not previously listed. I choose to add it under the category of fragrance because what could be more fragrant than an aromatherapy anointing oil? I will start by saying that I am a firm believer in treating the spirit/mind and the body will follow. I believe in the healing power of aromatherapy and alternative medicine. I believe in and use several products from this line (Kate's Magik). This product in particular I use for all the little things I struggle with...things that I would like to change about myself and could use some positive reinforcement to do so. This oil was created with the purpose of assisting in letting go of bad habits and patterns, balancing extremes and easing frustration. The scent immediately eases frustration upon some simple breathing in and out. Scent is fresh and clean, citrus with a hint of flower. A lavender/geranium blend. Each one of Kate's Oils treats a specific Chakra. This one treats Chakra: #3- Solar Plexus: Center of Will, Truth, Self and is meant to be applied frequently on your solar plexus, neck and also on your wrists for inhalation. I look forward to writing reviews for the additional anointing oils that I use and have benefited from. I strongly recommend this product for anyone looking to take care of their inner self.
