Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics

 

 

This past month I had the privilege to be able to receive and experience Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics. Th.e one that I got was the Essential Formula the original formula, which is a complete probiotic system with live cultures.

I'm not new to taking probiotics, in fact,  I give them to my kids as much as I can when I remember too. Probiotics are so great for your health and I really do feel giving them to my kids has helped to boost their immune system and keeps them from getting sick.  Really, my kids hardly ever get sick and when they do I tend to nip it in the bud with a couple of other herbs.

That's is why I feel that a healthy mind and body really does start in the gut, and if you have a healthy gut flora your body will be able to combat a lot of bad bacteria that could make you sick.

Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics are award-winning and feature the use of a Japanese fermentation and modern technology to give you a great start at a healthy digestive system.  This probiotic system is fermented for three years with 12 strains of lactic acid and bacteria. It is then encapsulated within a mixture of seaweed, mushrooms, fruits and vegetables.  Which will your body a complete system of probiotics, enzymes and other nutrients.

One of the reasons that I really wanted to try this brand of Probiotics out. Is because I haven't been taking a great care of myself lately as I should. I know this because although my kids have not gotten sick, I've been getting sick this year a lot on my own. I know it has to come from me eating things I should not be eating and taking in way to many sugars.  I really wanted to give my body's natural immune response a boost.

So I started taking the capsules for a little over a month now and some days I missed but I pretty much stuck to the plan. Two a day before food. I noticed at about 2 1/2 weeks in my body was starting to shake a little and I would burst out in weird chills from hot to cold. That sort of worried me so from that point,  I was taking only one a day. I  don't know if my body did not like the two a day, or if it was going through the detox process or something.

All I know, Is that once I went down to one a day it stopped and I was still able to see results. My skin got a lot clearer, my eyes were a lot whiter and my daily bowel movements were more on point and uniform.

Sorry to give so much information 🙂

One thing I can say it that I have really enjoyed taking Dr. Ohhira's Probiotis and I do plan on purchasing them again once I finish my pack of 60 capsules.

Just so you know this Essential Probiotic formula is:

 

  • 100% Vegetarian
  • Dairy Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Chemical Free
  • Non- Gmo

 

These have actually become one of my favorite go to Probiotics formula.

All Natural Deodorant

 

So you know its the summer months and the kids are all out of school and your running around trying to keep everything in order and the kids busy doing something. In order that you could have some down time for yourself toward the end of the night. Well that is exactly how I have been this past summer, running around like a chicken with my head cut off except for the fact that I sweat right along with it.

Now, I don't mean just sweat like some pretty little girl sweat, to put it nicely. ” When it rain's it Pours!”

Yes, I have the armpits that I think my father gave me.

Nah not that much.

But hey, it does feels that way sometimes.

So I was on the search for all natural deodorants that work! I am still in the search for the ultimate Natural Deodorant that will work miracles like their chemical laden fill counterparts 😉

However, I don't feel like I want to take the risk of Russian Roulette playing the game of getting cancer or allowing some other dangerous hormone inhibitor to seep into my skin pores that comes from using those sort of products. Especially when it so close to your breast area.

The top three that I have been playing around with lately have been:

 



Mill-Creek Cool Lavender Deodorant:  

  • Propylene Glycol Free
  • With Tea Tree Oil
  • No artificial Colors
  • Non-Irritating
  • No-Aluminum
  • All Natural and Organic Ingredients

 Jason Nourishing Apricot Pure Natural Deodorant Stick:

  • No Aluminum
  • Odor Protection
  • No paraben's, phthalates or propylene glycol
  • Uses corn starch and baking soda to neutralize odor

Zions Health Adama's Minerals Clay Dry Deodorant:

  • Long lasting protection
  • Original Scent
  • A unique formula of Clay Minerals and Essential Oils work effectively to neutralize odor and naturally absorb wetness
  • Free of aluminum, paraben, propylene glycol, artificial ingredients

 

I even made a video to really express how I feel!

 

 

P.S. So tell me do you use Natural Based Deodorants? I would love to know!

aromatherapy diffuser

Remember how in my last post I talked about the benefits of Essential Oils,  and how I love the role they play in the everyday health of beauty and natural living. Well, I was given the chance to review the Essio Shower Aromatherapy Shower Kit Diffuser!

 

I was totally stoked since just the thought of  taking a shower with essential oils dripping down infusing the air with scents of relaxation, was all you had to to to get me hooked.  I was sent the starter kit which comes with the shower Essio Shower Attachment and three pods full of essential oils that would last 3-5 showers each with heavenly scents. You might be thinking just three to five showers a piece, well I don't plan on using it for every shower.  I just use them on those days when I really need to wind down and rest pretty quickly. 😉

The three pods inside the starter includes:

 Breathe A refreshing aromatic blend of peppermint and eucalyptus which will help to clear sinuses and decrease congestion. While at the same creating a relaxing element for your senses and body

Passion Gives a Mysterious, exciting complex synergistic mix of orange, lavender, and patchouli. Which creates a sensual aroma.

Unwind – This delightful, restorative blend combo gives an air of citrus and spicy floral tones for an atmosphere of lightness and will promote instant relief.

 

Essio Shower kit Diffuser

 

The only thing I pretty much had to do was open the box, attach it to the shower rod above the shower head, activate the pod by turning it counterclockwise and turn on the shower. It was super simple and took less than five minutes to attach and use.

 

Just so you know, the Essio Shower Aromatherapy kit is free from synthetic additives, fragrance, color or preservatives. The essential oils all come from natural plant-based extracts.

 

It did not leave my shower to oily at all if you're concerned about that I would recommend a shower mat.

 

I really left my shower all though it was quick during the day, feeling refreshed and uplifted. More so relaxed!

 

Will I buy this product again,  Yes, I will 😉 I want to explore their other oils and how well they work.

 

I really think the Essio Shower is something really cool and it really did bring the spa to my home!

 

A tip though with the UN – used pods, you can place them on your dresser and it will fill up the whole room with great scents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really have enjoyed the Essio Shower Aromatherapy Starter kit! If you would like to have a chance to get one of your own you can click here to visit the site and you can also Enter for a Chance to Win One of your Own.

P.S.  Have you ever used the Essio Shower Kit?
