Grateful Naturals Review and Giveaway Ends 6/15/15

DISCLOSURE:
I received products from Grateful Naturals for the purpose of this review. I received no monetary compensation. The opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with the items.




As I'm sure you know, my family loves natural products -- organic whenever possible.  I seriously never thought that I'd find not only natural skin and body care but also pain relief rub and even natural bug repellent!

I heard about Grateful Naturals from a friend.  So, I thought I'd investigate further.  After taking a long look at the website, I knew that ya'll would want to know about these great products, too!

A couple of weeks ago, I was truly blessed to receive several Grateful Naturals items in the mail: 
two sticks of Botanical Deodorants (Lavender for me and Lemongrass for Happy Husband), a stick of Muscle Relief balm, and a spray bottle of Botanical Bug Repellent.




Since Happy Husband works outside in very hot and buggy South Georgia, he took the bug repellent.  He really wasn't sure it would help, but has expressed surprised pleasure that it DOES work!  
Ingredients include: Distilled water, alcohol free witch hazel, spearmint oil, citronella, clove, tea tree, lavender, lemon and rosemary. 

The essential oils and citronella are proven repellents but are not harsh and have no nasty medicinal or chemical odor.  Tea Tree Oil is toxic to several insects.  Witch Hazel is a natural healing remedy for insect bites!

Mike sprays it on his hands and other exposed areas every couple of hours (not the face) and isn't coming home with bites.  That's a huge relief as he has sensitive skin and insect bites just make him miserable.


    

The botanical deodorants are just fabulous!  I choose the Lavender Scent and Mike took the Lemongrass. Now, he was a bit concerned as he has to use a deodorant that is mild, not harsh, and won't cause him to burn or develop a rash.  He's also not crazy about scented products.

The deodorant stick is very lightly scented.  It contains Coconut Oil, Baking Soda, Arrowroot Powder, Shea Butter, Organic Beeswax, Essential Oil.  It's not as 'hard" as a regular chemically processed stick deodorant. It's more like a balm. It goes on a bit thicker than most, but definitely NOT sticky and it dries faster than a gel or roll-on.

I chose the lavender for both it's aromatherapy and healing properties.  I am fairly stressed and the light, gentle fragrance of lavender soothes and calms my soul.

Mike chose the lemongrass for it's known healing properties of pain relief, relieving exhaustion, and soothing aching joints.



 We also received a stick to botanical muscle relief -- a very soothing balm for achy joints, arthritis, muscle pain. Ingredients include Coconut oil, beeswax, birch, clove, and essential oils.

May I bring gently to your attention how the deodorant and muscle relief  look VERY similar??? In the early morning... before coffee... after the shower and before you put on your glasses... one can quite easily confuse the two.

Ask me how I know??? 

Yes. I confess. I used the muscle relief stick instead of the deodorant under my arms.  Seriously, it wasn't until about 15 minutes later that I realized that the 'deodorant' has not dried and my arms were toasty warm.

However, I did learn that this amazing Muscle Relief Stick does NOT burn the skin the way that chemically-processed muscle pain relief products do.  This is a great blessing because it means that Happy Husband can use it, too.

I have it sitting right here at my computer desk.  I roll it over my fingers in the morning when I get started and again just before bedtime.   I keep the deodorant by my bedside.  It's just safer than way... LOL! ;D
