Raquelitas sent me some gluten free sandwich petals.
Being gluten free is not an easy task. Gluten is in so many products. Lotions, shampoos, toothpaste, soap, food, drinks etc. When you do find a gluten free product, many times, its full of sugar. Mr Crazy Life has been gluten free for approximately 4 years now and finding quality products can be difficult AND spendy!
Queue Raquelitas … These babies are so flexible and SO delicious!
Raquelitas also has safeguards against gluten contamination. They segregate all the ingredients away from wheat/gluten products. The Line that these gluten free petals are made on is a dedicated line. There is 200 feet between the other lines and a solid concrete wall between them. FANTASTIC! They even have their own air supply for the different lines.
I was able to try the Chimayo red chile, agave grain, and spinach garlic. These were all so good. They have gluten free ancient grains, omega 3’s, high prebiotic fiber, only 100 calories and low glycemic.
I love the fact that they are flexible and tasty. That is so hard to find in a gluten free product. We have made quesadillas and sandwich wraps. I even cut them in half to make two pieces and used them for pulled pork/chicken. Amazing! They held up to every test that we gave it. My daughters most recent attempt to use them is almond butter and a bit of shredded cheese. Sounds odd, but super tasty!
You can order these by the case on amazon. If you are gluten free, diabetic, or atkins I would highly recommend this product. Even if you are not they are delicious and very healthy!
Safe Ringz started in 2010. These are safe alternatives to metal wedding bands. These are safe, non-conductive, heat resistant silicone! These are great for anyone who works with their hands. Now Firemen, electricians, firefighters, mechanics etc can finally wear their wedding rings without fear of getting hurt or caught up on equipment! They are also great for those who experience swelling in the hands such as pregnant women or diabetics.
Mr Crazy Life weight lifts and rock climbs so these have been an inexpensive option that can get beat up and not ruin his expensive band. Anyone that is into sports, lifts weights, rock climbs or is outdoors will appreciate this. They are an affordable option and not thick at all. Mr Crazy Life doesnt wear this as his band full time, but it is definitely a great option for the times your expensive metal band is not a good idea.
Check out their safety features
here. These bands come in platnum, black, white, gold,
antique metallic, and a variety of other colors. You can size your fingers here.
Two things I love about this brand. USDA Organic seal and the Rainforest Alliance seal. From their site they state” The USDA Organic Seal assures that at least 95% of the ingredients are organically certified. The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal guarantees that the cocoa in our Signature Series was grown on farms that meet comprehensive standards for sustainable farming, protecting soil, waterways and wildlife habitat as well as the rights and welfare of workers, their families and communities.” I received an assortment of the following 3.25-ounce bars (which we had to hide and dole out to the little)
Diffusing mamassent me this amazing old world celtic cross diffusing locket for review. This view shows the pendant with a black diffusing pad inside. I was blown away by the quality and weight of the pendant. There is nothing flimsy about this jewelry. The chain that came with it is quite stunning as well.
And here it is with the white diffusing pad. This locket is designed to gently diffuse throughout the day and night with body heat gently warming the locket.
Here you can see the locket and both pads. It is made from surgical stainless steel. Isn't it amazingly beautiful? This necklace is not heavy but it has some weight to it so its very comfortable. The beaded chain it comes with allows you to put the locket closer to your face if you want to smell the oils more prominently. I find myself playing with the pendant because the finish is so smooth, and I love the intricate pattern on the front.
They have a variety of high quality pendants and bracelets available. The winner will get $25 towards whichever amazing pendant they want.
Soothie Suckers sent me these great ice pops. They were created by Marietta Harrison to create happy, healthy kids. A parent of 5 kids she was on a search for natural ways to promote health. Check out her story here.
Soothie suckers are premeasured herbal remedies delivered in a tasty way for children. There are grape and orange natural flavors. Marietta works with a local herbalist to create herbal blends to keep kids healthy.
This company is small and focused on specific needs of children, which I love. Their products tap into ancient wisdom of herbal support for immune function.
There is NO high fructose corn syrup or alcohol AND the packaging is BPA free! :)
We try to promote our health with natural remedies as much as possible and keep our immune systems healthy. This is going to be a staple in our house! I have tried both and little crazy life is nutso about them! They used nutrition that is plant based and gets kids to take them in a yummy dose of kid friendly ice pops.
New Green Air sent me this handy little car diffuser! This diffuser plugs into your car's lighter and instantly delivers a fine aromatherapy mist throughout your car.
Check out how compact it is! Mr Crazy life commutes 45 minutes each way and this little bottle (filled with immune formula) lasted a whole week. The little line allows you to see how empty the bottle is.
It was a bit harder to fill, so I suggest using the little pipette. Recommended: Dilute 50 % of essential oil with 50% water.
The diffuser does a little chirp when it diffuses which makes little crazy and myself giggle. Its a great portable option and is great to have for commutes or staycations. This is a great way to keep your family healthy on the go as well as make your car smell good without harmful chemicals!
Greenair sent me a different type of diffuser for review this time.
This diffuser is genius. You screw the bottle of oil, directly into the unit. No water to mess with! Mr Crazy Life stole this review item for his office. Mr Crazy Lifes favorite setting is the 120 minute setting with 10-15 seconds of diffusing and 30 seconds off. While diffusing I put my finger right over the dispenser and there was no visible oil or moisture on my hand.
NebAirSmart SystemFeatures 48 settings. My favorite thing about this product is how its customizable diffusing by adjusting the settings. The first button on the left is your on time in intervals of 5 seconds. The second time setting is the full length of time for your diffuser to run (up to 120 minutes), and the third is the off interval.
• 4 stage Timer Modes
• 16 Smart Interval Settings
• 64 pre-set Smart Setting
Slide the cap directly onto the bottle full of oil. Here I have a grapefruit essential oil. The cap will fit on most essential oil bottles.
Next line up the cap/bottle with the mechanism on the unit.
Slide the cap/bottle upwards until it clicks.
This plug can be a USB adapter or plug into the wall converter.
This has to be one of my favorite diffusers for the office because its great for a specific time limit and you can customize the diffusing. There is no moisture involved so the threat of water near electronics is not a worry anymore. Because you can customize the time of dispensing you can make your oils go further as well. You can easily go a whole week or more on one bottle if you want. The unit is unassuming as well so can easily be used in the workplace on a low dispersing interval!
I might have to steal this one back from the Mr. ;)
