Radha Beauty Tea Tree Oil – The miracle oil!! (claims not approved by the FDA, merely my opinion)

I have been a fan of Melaleuca Oil for years, in fact long before Essential Oils became trendy, this was a staple in my home. Also known as Tea Tree oil, this has many uses and I will simply talk about how I use it.

I have begun making my own health and beauty products, and three that I use the most are my homemade shampoo, homemade laundry detergent and a skin softening healing salve. There are so many chemicals in the commercial versions of these products that I wanted to find healthy, organic or more natural versions, and tea tree oil is a prominent ingredient in each of these. I’ve been buying the small 15 ml bottles and if you make any quantity of these products, it can be quite cost prohibitive.

This product by Radha Beauty is of top quality, and by selling this in 4 oz. bottles, you can incorporate it in many ways without worrying about running out when you need it for something else. It comes in a lovely blue glass bottle, with a glass eyedropper so you can measure it precisely. I also rub it into my nails (both hand and toes) and while it strengthens my fingernails, it is rapidly clearing up a fungal toe nail infection I’ve dealt with for years.

My doctor gave me a product that has more health warnings on it than benefits, and I used it for two months with little results. Within two weeks of using tea tree oil, I can see new, healthy nail growing in. Granted nail growth is a slow process, but I’ve got a nice supply now to ensure I’ll finish the treatment with new healthier nails. Every house needs one of these bottles (in my humble opinion) because this one bottle can replace dozens of products. Wonderful!

Plastic Transfer Pipettes 3ml, pack of 100 – Ingenious invention!

I have been acquiring different essential oils and other all natural beauty products, and have begun making my own DIY beauty and health products, both to save money and to begin eliminating some of the chemicals from our lives.  These pipettes make it easier to transfer hot liquid waxy products to their container, to measure out essential oils and other liquids without cross-contaminating or spilling too much into a container. I am sure I will find other uses for this, like measuring flavorings into my baked goods, or as I have seen others do, as a decoration full of chocolate liquor or other goodies stuck in a gourmet cupcake.  But for now they are helping me be less messy, and if you ask my hubby, that is always a good thing!  I will definitely buy these again, but the pack of 100 is A LOT and they should last a long time.

50 Clear Empty Brand New Lip Balm Tubes & Caps,Contains NO BPA, Made in the USA – LOVE these

I purchased these from simplenatural on eBay, and wasn’t sure whether or not I was going to be able to do what I wanted to do with these.  I am just starting to experiment with DIY beauty and health products, and I wanted my first project to be lip balm.  Both my husband and I use lip balm, neither of us drink enough water, and therefore our lips are often dry.  So I found a good recipe but needed to put it in something, so I searched for lip balm tubes, and this one seemed to be the best price.  I am completely happy with these.  I made my first batch last night, and every lid fit every tube perfectly.  None of the tubes leaked, and the mechanism that turns to push the balm up works flawlessly on each.  I will definitely buy these again (although it will be awhile before I use all these…50 is a lot for the amateur!
