TAKE BACK THE LOVE and get ready to look your best this Valentine’s Day holiday. In order to keep you looking your best, here are some coupons and tips on products that are better for you. You don’t look your best with irritated skin or eyes. Artificial fragrances are the worst thing for your lungs and skin. If you read the back of any bottle of bathroom spray, it stated “ DO NOT INHALE”. What?! An inexpensive alternative is to add some baking soda to a glass jar to absorb odors. Add some apple or pumpkin pie spice or an essential oil to the baking soda to make rooms smell naturally pleasant. No more allergies or coughing due to the irritants in these fragrance products. Warning: If you have pet birds it is especially important to NOT use most artificially scented household products. The respiratory system of birds is very sensitive. Stick to natural room fresheners so that the WHOLE family- people & animals are healthy. Most scented candles suffer the same problem. Stick to soy based candles with essential oils for a safer room scent product. I periodically stock up at my local Big Lots store when available. I also love love love the Citruscent citrus air freshener found at Sally Beauty Supply. The small bottles lasts a long time to naturally eliminate the stinkiest of odors with only 1-2 sprays. Try these tips to save money as you will avoid doctor visits, over the counter allergy medicines and anti-itch creams for avoidable problems.
1. Free sample of Breathe Right strips ( 2 pack) and/or $1.50 off coupon
2. $1 off Simply Saline nasal spray.
$0.55 of Arm & Hammer baking soda
3. Kirk’s Original Coco castile soap pack of 3 bars for only $3.28 at Wal-mart. I just saw it a few weeks ago in Wal-mart Supercenter in little old Mebane, NC along with the regular conventional soaps. What an affordable way to enjoy a natural soap. I tried it and it is great for cleansing and moisturizing body and hair, as well as for a super soft lather for shaving. I kept a bar in the kitchen for hand washing and found it worked great on my dishes too. See link below for a picture so you know what to watch for in Wal-Mart.
I still love my Dr. Bronner’s liquid and bar castile soaps, but Wal-mart does not sell it yet. This was a great find when I am not near Target, Lowes Foods or Harris Teeter. Anyone with a loved one with eczema or sensitive skin should try either Dr Bronner’s or this Kirk’s castile bar soap and use coconut oil (found in grocery section next to other cooking oils) as a skin moisturizer. Some of you may ask why the big deal about soap. Ivory (only 99.44% pure), Dial and Dove have been around a long time. But the artificial fragrance, the animal fat (from slaughterhouse waste), and/or the other little bit of artificial ingredients/preservatives in these products can be detrimental to those with sensitive skin or respiratory issues. Give it a try and enjoy healthier skin and hair.
Let’s look and feel our best this love month and show yourself some love. Show others love too as you share this information with them.
Take Back the Love this Month!
