As a 2nd year member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review many homeschool products. The only compensation that I receive for my review is the free product. I feel truly blessed to be participating in this review group and I'm looking forward to trying out these products and giving you my honest opinion.
If you are looking for all-natural health products you will definitely want to check out the Beeyoutiful website. Their products include vitamin supplements, lotions, hair products, and more. Here's a quote from the site owners:
"We have found a lot a tools that have worked very well for our families, and made Beeyoutiful a repository for those tools, as well as the information to effectively use them. As we learn more, we share more. Our goal is to eventually carry every natural product that we use."
Several different products from Beeyoutiful were sent to TOS Crew members and I received a product called Tension Tamer. This neat little product is an all- natural alternative to aspirin. From the website:
"This incredible combination of essential oils act to reduce pain, relieve tension and combat headaches. A great nerve relaxer and pocket decongestant. Roll Tension Tamer on temples, wrists, nose, or neck and relax as your headache and tension disappear. Great for children too!"
In case you're wondering, this little cocktail includes the following essential oils: expeller pressed jojoba oil, expeller pressed sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, eucalyptus essential oil, peppermint essential oil, wintergreen essential oil. If you're anything like me, however, that doesn't mean much. The real question is ... does it work?
Well, I only get headaches occasionally and I generally prefer to just deal with them rather than take aspirin. I've always been a little anti-pills. So I admit, the idea of simply rolling on some essential oils to relieve a headache sounds pretty nice to me.
I've been using the Tension Tamer on occasion for about a month now and my conclusion is that it does seem to work a little. I'm not claiming a miracle or anything. But it certainly has a nice smell, it leaves a cool feeling on the back of the neck after you rub it on, and my tension/headaches have seemed to ease up after using it. I can also testify after this weekend, that it has a soothing effect on a major sunburn as well!
The tension tamer sells for $11. Seems a little pricey for such a small bottle, but after using it a month I've truly barely put a dent in it. So it really doesn't seem so bad to me after all.
