All Good Goop - 2oz

Our first product ever to hit store shelves, we named this healing balm All Good Goop when we realized how amazing it is for everything! Its organic skincare formula mixes essential oils with medicinal plants to make it strong enough for a climber’s raw knuckles and gentle enough for a baby’s bottom. 

Cuts, Scrapes, Abrasions

Minor Burns, Sunburn

Insect Bites, Stings, Dry and Irritated Skin

Chapped Lips

Diaper Rash

Blisters

Cracked or Calloused Hands

Scars… and much more

Love that it’s natural. And that it works. I’ve used the All Good Goop for several of the problems listed above including insect bites (spider and fire ant) and scrapes. It absorbs well and gets to the job of fast healing. I like that it can be used for so many things. It’s available in several jar sizes; the 2 oz. jar is handy for traveling.

For beginners and green-thumbed foodies, this unusually all-inclusive garden-to-kitchen cookbook is part lesson in gardening and part collection of healthy, delicious, kid-friendly recipes

.

Plant, Cook, Eat!  is published by Charlesbridge Publishing. They offer “high-quality books for children, with a goal of creating lifelong readers and lifelong learners.” 

Hardcover, 112 pages. Ages 7-10; Grades 2-5

The book starts with some gardening information and plant science for elementary students. The remaining book consists of several vegetables (I count 16 veggies) that are presented with basic how-to growing tips followed by one recipe that includes that veggie. Adult assistance is required for both the gardening and cooking instructions in this book.

I find the “plant” section of the book useful. The “Cook” and “Eat”,  not so much. Overall, the book didn’t meet my expectations.

Naked Binder

 Serious, but Fun.

Naked Binder’s mission is to create the most sustainable office supplies by offering an eco-friendly alternative to the toxic options on the market. We believe that a 3-ring binder may not be able to save the world, but they can reduce the toxic waste that must be landfilled and keep your office and home air better.

Hooray- I’ve used these before and recommend them for school, office, and home use. There are several styles of Naked Binders in various sizes to suit your style or need. The papers and board are acid free. They also sell folders and tabs. 

Boohoo-They are not found in stores and so would have to be purchased online. The inside D rings are a bit clunky. I prefer smooth and quiet.

 

Naked Binders are available in several styles and sizes. My favorite binder is the little plain one (bare board) and the one that I still have in good working condition. (5 years now)

A discount is offered for materials used in the line of work for educators, teachers, and schools. I asked and this discount applies to home school teachers.

UCB BLANKET + PILLOW

The lug® collection of undercover bears is a cuddle team of different bears/agents. They have different colors, faces, names, and even personalities! Agent Boots, the brown bear, is “one tough bear – a mighty force, no doubt. His strength is matched by none around; he’s stable as a rock. Cuddle in close with this big, strong bear, and carry him for health and stability whenever you need cover.” 

 

 

 

There is an inflatable pillow for the bear cover or you could use the blanket inside the bear cover for a softer shapable fit (assuming you don’t need the blanket) Both the bear pillow cover and the blanket are machine washable.

I’ve washed agent Gomer, the “green” bear, several times since I’ve had him (2014) and he is still soft and in good shape. I’ve had many uses for him over the years. Not surprising that it makes a great back-to-school idea. We head out in the morning with a cuddly back seat travel buddy. Sometimes he rides with mom up front !

Pillow Case Size: 11″w x 9″h x 3″d
Blanket Size: 35″w x 46″h

It’s Eco-wonderful. It’s your grill’s new BFF.

It’s THE ULTIMATE BBQ CLEANING TOOL.

Made in Wisconsin. 100% hardwood.

Four years ago I tried The Woody Paddle. It has proved to be a tough, useful grilling accessory. Don’t let this worn looking paddle lead you believe it’s outlived it’s purpose. It still rocks!

“Each Great Scrape is already treated with a food safe mineral oil (butcher block oil). If the color begins to fade over time, reapply mineral oil as appropriate. We recommend storing it out of the elements.” (I admit: Our Woody Paddle was never treated to mineral oil and was frequently left to view the constellations.)

Get yours online @ the great scrape. Personalize it if you want. Follow them on Facebook; they have mouth-watering food pics, recipes & Great Scrape giveaways!

Organic and Natural Skin Care – Beauty By Earth

Beauty By Earth Facial Toner; Organic and Natural Witch Hazel Rose Water Astringent; Best Hydrating and Clarifying Face Spray for Daily Use; No Alcohol or Oil; Skin Cleansing for Men and Women

“Perfectly Natural. Crazy Effective. Absolute Peace Of Mind.”

Facial Toner with Rose Water

Light, fresh, clean, refreshed… Do those words describe your skin? They will once you start using facial toner with rose water! This light, bright, and refreshing spray helps clear away excess dirt, oil, and dead skin that may be on your face after washing. It also helps nourish your skin, reduce redness, swelling, and irritation, helps relieve sun and razor burn, and just feels really, really good.

What do we like best about our facial toner with rose water? Besides the fact that it helps make complexions look their best, makes pores smaller, balances skin pH, is easy to use, and smells incredible, it’s made with 100% natural and organic ingredients. Everything in the bottle (and, now that we think about it, the bottle itself) is sustainably sourced and entirely cruelty free. There’s really no better way to care for your face. Once you start using our toner, you won’t want to go back!

 

This is a terrific toner! The above description is right on. Thank you Beauty By Earth for allowing me to review your toner with rose water (& with aloe vera, witch hazel, and cucumber) It has been added to my selective list of skin care products that I use.

Additionally, I’d like to mention that I use their Boar Hair Bristle Brush. The longer nylon bristles of this brush help with tangles and the boar bristles make hair shiny and smooth.  

Products are natural and effective. Made in the US. Cruelty free. Available on their website and on Amazon.
