Herbal Animals makes eco-friendly pillows in whimsical designs. We’ve taken a cue from the centuries-old tradition of using herbs to help summon sweet dreams–to create lovable sleep companions.

leopardo di caprio 12" eyepillow

Leopardo Di Caprio is named after the beautifully camouflaged, secretive and endangered snow leopard. Leo is filled with lavender, spearmint + sweet annie. He is just one of many different herbal animal eye pillows. 

Use Leo, or any of the other eye critters, for bedtime relaxation or eyestrain relief. A good kiddo companion that makes for an easy bedtime routine. 

All of the eye pillow critters can be put in a fun Herbal Animal signature shirt made of 100% organic cotton. This is a great way to keep them cleaner. The shirts are machine washable. 

Read my previous Herbal Animal post (search “herbal”) from two years ago. Zebra was the herbal animal eye pillow I reviewed and he has since resided in the bedside table drawer and is often used. The lovely lavender, linden flower and chamomile fragrance is still strong. 

A portion of the proceeds of the sale of this leo will be donated to The World Wildlife Fund, whose snow leopard program focuses on reducing human-leopard conflict and rural development, education for sustainable development, stopping mining in fragile snow leopard habitat, and the control of the illegal wildlife trade.

There is an inner cotton case so the linen cover can be removed and washed. It is already naturally cool to the touch but it can be placed in the refrigerator or freezer to chill before use.

Tea Tree Therapy was born from an idea that everyone should have access to a safe and natural antiseptic! Therefore Tea Tree Therapy, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Ed Heftman and Suzanne Dean. Suzanne Dean, an Aussie native, is recognized as one of the leading pioneers of tea tree oil and has been one of its most ardent supporters for more than 3 decades. Tea Tree Therapy has established itself as the industry leader for more than 23 years by sourcing only the highest quality oil direct from the plantation in Australia. 

 

 

Tea Tree Therapy Antiseptic Liquid Soap is the ideal face, hand, and body soap for everyday use. Tea Tree Oil makes the liquid soap the perfect antiseptic soap that is mild and gentle with addition of Aloe Vera gel and natural extracts. Working gently without drying the skin, it leaves skin noticeably clean and feeling well. 

This company offers many tea tree products, all with ingredients listed on the website and the product. Tea Tree Therapy products are cruelty free. This is a must for me when using a product. Thank you for going cruelty-free and making a difference!

The liquid soap created a creamy lather. It rinsed easy and left a nice scent on my hands. We used it on hands and body. A little bit goes a long way. My six year old reviewer said he thought it was easy to use and “liked the smell”. This product is recommended and we will be interested in trying more of their products.

This boxed card deck includes 50 creative mindfulness games, visualizations and exercises divided into 5 categories to help children feel grounded, find calm, improve focus, practice loving-kindness and relax. Whimsical full-color illustrations on both sides of the cards break down each practice into easy-to-follow steps. Tips on individual cards plus an 8-page instructional booklet show modifications that make these activities inclusive for children of all abilities.

What is Mindfulness? How does this help you?

Visit Whitney’s site for more information  

 

Mindful Kids are activity cards – They have various mindfulness skills on them. They have illustrations on both sides of the cards.The illustrations are colorful and busy and we found them to be repetitive. The activities became repetitive, too.

This makes my second mindfulness product review and I am thinking the term “mindfulness” is the present day take on learning good behavior. Doesn’t good behavior include being kind and having control over oneself / kindness, focus, and calm ?

The activities are good non-media options for children and for that I give Mindful Kids a favorable review. We enjoy the activity cards that are titled Mind Castle and Rooted Like a Tree

52 exercises and practices to help kids calm their mind and body, pay attention, become more self-aware, feel happier and confident, connect with others and have fun. Deck can also be used as card games (based on popular children’s games) that encourage kids to practice a mindfulness skill each time they win a hand. Great for therapists, teachers and parents. Perfect for ages 4 and up.

I’ve been seeing the word “mindfulness” spring up in all sorts of places lately. A bit curious about what mindfulness skills are, I wanted to review this product. Each of the Mindfulness Skills cards contain a mindfulness exercise with a stick figure drawing that demonstrates that exercise.The graphic is what held my five year old’s attention while I read the suggested activity.I was surprised that many of the exercises are actually things that we have done at some time or another.

It looks like we have already been using mindfulness on some level シ

In addition to the product’s intended purpose, they could also easily be used as writing or art prompts. These are fun exercises for the short pauses we can insert into life.
