Redmond Trading Company Review

Treat Yourself Giveaway Hop-Redmond Clay Review and Giveaway

Treat yourself to Redmond Clay.
What is Redmond Clay?

http://wp.me/p3Qr1T-KJ

Redmond’s Bentonite Clay is a natural, edible healing clay with no additives, chemicals or preservatives. Bentonite clay has been used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes since ancient times.

Geologists state that Redmond Clay is volcanic ash that was deposited in sea water long ago, where it developed into a swelling-type sodium bentonite clay. Redmond Clay is extracted from the earth in the state of Utah, near the famous ancient sea bed salt mines. This clay deposit is one of the most unique clay deposits discovered so far, being rich in both calcium and sodium.

Once extracted, Redmond Clay is then packaged in its pure, natural state.

There are literally thousands of recipes and dozens upon dozens of internal and external uses for Redmond Clay – which is why the folks at Redmond have dubbed it “the clay of a thousand uses”.

Treat yourself with Redmond Clay and discover all the ways you and your family can benefit from the healing power of Redmond Clay.

Treat yourself to Redmond Clay Facial Mud.

Redmond Clay Facial Mud Review

Redmond Clay Facial Mud is amazing for your skins overall health and well-being. This powerful clay helps to clarify skin, remove excess oil, shrink pores, draw out toxins, tone skin, remove impurities, and deep clean. I loved how cooling and silky the clay feels on my skin and really enjoy my few minutes of calming peacefulness while I am using my mask.

Treat yourself to Earthpaste Amazingly Natural Toothpaste.

Earthpaste Review

This earthpaste is different from any toothpaste I have ever tried! I had to really get used to the different texture because it doesn’t foam up. I have to say though after a week of using it I truly do love it! I had to stop while moving back to my hometown and my teeth missed it-seriously, I had to dig it out of my boxes and start using it again nothing compares. Seriously-You just have to try it and stick with it for a week, then you won’t want to go back to your regular toothpaste.

Treat yourself to Redmond Bath Salts Plus.

Bath Salt Plus Review

Take your relaxing baths to the next level with Redmond Bath Salts Plus. They help to detoxify your body with an abundance of trace minerals that can help restore mineral-deficient bodies back to good health. We added our favorite essential oil to our bath with the salts to make the bath even more relaxing. This salt takes a bit to dissolve in the bath but it is worth the wait.

Treat yourself to Real Salt Organic Season Salt.

Real Salt Organic Season Salt Review

This will be my all time favorite season salt EVER! I love this season salt! It is so good! It has just the right balance of flavors to perfectly season chicken, pork, steaks, and veggies. I love making roasted chicken breast and potatoes with it and fried chicken is heavenly with this season salt. I also use this to season my chicken when I make green enchiladas, chicken broccoli and rice, and chicken quesadillas.

I’d encourage you to peruse the Redmond Clay website to get a really good understanding of it and all the benefits it can bring you and your family.

Happy Tot Grow & Shine Organic Toddler Milk from the Happy Family Review & Giveaway 10/17-10/31

 I was sent this product in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Happy Tot Grow and Shine Organic Toddler Milk from the Happy Family Review and Giveaway

Every time we go over to our doctor for yearly check-ups I wonder if my children are healthy and getting all they need. Like most parents I worry about their nutritional intake, especially my toddler-quite frankly toddlers can be very picky and stubborn. I desperately try to remember the last time I convinced him to eat veggies successfully before the questions about nutrition are brought up. If you’re like me then let me calm your worries because the Happy Family has a NEW Happy Tot Grow & Shine Organic Toddler Milk that is perfect for your toddler.

Happy Tot Grow & Shine Toddler milk is formulated to support toddler’s extensive physical and cognitive development and ensure they receive the essential nutrients necessary for their continued growth. Just what I have been waiting for! Trust me you won’t find that printed on a gallon of milk. I especially love that developed to address the changing nutritional needs of children 12-24 months old. Plus it offers essential nutrients that cow’s milk does not, such as iron, DHA and choline, which are important for brain and eye development. Amazing right! But wait it gets better! It is organic which means no growth hormones, or steroids here and it’s designed to support the specific dietary needs of a growing toddler by providing an additional source of vitamins and minerals. Because you know they grow so fast and I really need all the additional help I can get to support that growth.

Grow and Shine from Happy Family

I love the design of the tub just as much as all the nutritional benefits! The tub has this special slot to hold the scooper so you don’t have to get your hands all powdery fishing it out.

Making Ezra a 6 oz. sippy is as easy as 1-2-3.

Easy as 123

Grow and Shine Review

One serving offers one-third of the expert recommended daily amount of DHA for toddlers which supports toddlers brain growth. Did you know a toddler’s brain triples in size from birth to age two, making this an ideal time for complete nutrition.

Happy Family Happy Tot Review

Happy Tot Review

Happy Tot Grow & Shine is recommended as a supplement to a toddler’s diet and not as a replacement for cow’s milk

To help navigate the world of feeding your little one, the Happy Family has created Nutritional Resources that you can download for yourself. You can find the Nutrition Guides and Allergy Reference Chart on the Happy Family website or click the links in this sentence. Visit their website www.happyfamilybrands.com to learn more about their AWESOME company and all their organic products for babies, toddlers and kids.
