Natural 100% Ultimate JOJOBA #HolidayGiftGuide

Sample sent for feature

jojoba logo

We take multivitamins for body functions, but what about our skin? This natural Ultimate Jojoba (ho-ho-ba) is a multivitamin for the skin. It contains so many natural oils that do wonders for our skin from providing moisture and anti-aging properties.

jojoba-natural

This Ultimate Jojoba smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with a pleasant linden blossom scent. With the added oils, you get Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and Omega Fatty Acids 3, 6 and 9. The jojoba oil carries the vitamins and nutrients deep into your skin for a healthy glow and process. It leaves a small bit of oil after I put it on and within minutes it is absorbed. On some cases it is absorbed within seconds and there is no residue left. I apply a small amount at night after washing my face and in the morning before my makeup.

The Australians know a bit about sun-related aging in their climate and Jojoba is an Australian company. If uneven skin tone is not your issue, then see what other natural products Jojoba Company has to offer. See my recent review of .

2 Hair and Skincare Serums with Natural Oils Review

Samples sent for feature

natural oils serum

Only recently have I had a better interest in using oils both for skincare and around my home. I have oils I use when sick or my son has an upset stomach and oils that make my home smell good as well as oils that improve my skin. The skin care serums from Eden’s Semilla bring oils you apply to any affected area at a great price.

edens natural oil

Eden’s Semilla Vitamin E Oil and 100% pure Jojoba Oil is 2 of the great oils that are available on Amazon and is a Prime qualifier. You can also find essential oils, rosehip and argan oils and Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Serums.

jojoba natural oils

 The 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil is cold pressed and unrefined. Jojoba is a great benefit all over the body from skin to hair. It helps to guard against skin irritation, inflammation, acne, dryness and chapped skin and I love how non-greasy it is and dries fast too. It really leaves your skin or hands and nails so soft. It smells fantastic too-like a citrus scent.

vitamin natural oils

Eden’s Semilla Vitamin E oil is at a 35,000 IU strength and is made with added organic rosehip and jojoba oil blend (used as the carrier oil for the Vitamin E). It is all natural and 100% Extracted from plants. Vitamin E helps repair damaged skin, provides hydration for dry skin and provides relief for skin irritation and sunburn.

Effective Clean without Chemicals using Force of Nature

Sample sent for feature

force-of-nature

Finally a safer way to clean. Actually, it just might be the safest of all. Force of Nature cleans using only salt, water and vinegar. When electrolyzed together it becomes more powerful than bleach. The reason we don’t use this safe clean in our homes is that not everyone has the ability to electrolyze ingredients in there homes. Force of Nature has found a way to bring this technology to us and now we can clean safely without the chemicals. Here is how it all works and why you need to clean this way….

How it works

This slim machine from Force of Nature electrolyzes water. It comes with pre-measured activator capsules of salt, water and vinegar. When you combine water, the capsule and electricity you get a safe, all-purpose cleaner and natural disinfectant. The low level of electricity changes the salt and water solutions composition.

When you add vinegar, the pH is regulated and you get 2 gentle yet powerful ingredients: sodium hydroxide and hypocholorous acid. There is a mild fresh scent that you get as well. I personally love scents in my cleaners but I don’t like the chemicals. I remedy that by burning my essential oil diffuser in my home while I clean with my Force of Nature.

Using Force of Nature kills 99.99% of germs including MRSA, E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria. You also won’t get antibiotic resistant bacteria left behind. There are no dangerous chemicals and eliminates germs, odors, mold, mildew, grease and grime. It also works on any surface.

Save money

It is also very cost effective. In the long run you will save about $70 just in the first year. Average safe-labeled cleaners cost .19-.36 cents an ounce and using Force of Nature will cost you .07 cents an ounce. The starter unit will cost you about $80-$90 and you get 5 activator capsules to start. When you make a full bottle solution it is good for 2 weeks. Refill capsules are well under $1 each. PLUS I was just at their website and had a pop up that said if you join there newsletter in that pop up you can get $30 off and free shipping. I’d hurry because I am not sure how long that lasts.
