Adovia Sulfur Soap With Dead Sea Salt – Review

This soap is no longer available, but if you’d like a sulfur soap, there’s a nice list here.

I recently received one of these soaps for review, and I enjoyed using it. I’m not one to have acne or excessive black heads (I’ve been blessed with very good skin), but washing with this soap leaves skin feeling squeaky clean: a bit tight, but not so much that I’d be overly concerned.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION from manufacturer:

  • Adovia sulfur soap, is highly enriched with minerals and sulfur from the Dead Sea.
  • Your skin’s natural moisture levels are balanced and optimized with Olive Oil, Dead Sea minerals and Aloe Vera extract.
  • Sulfur has Antiseptic, Anti-Fungal and Antibacterial properties
  • This soap thoroughly cleanses your face and body and leaves your skin gentle and smooth.
  • Our sulfur soap has a 3% sulfur content.

I like that the soap isn’t highly scented, and looks like it will last quite a while. If you suffer with acne, oily skin and black heads, give this soap a try.  You can find it at Amazon and you ca read more about the company at their site: CleopatrasChoice.com

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Propresser Garlic Press Review

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad I work from home, because I love my garlic. And since I’m home most of the time, I can more easily eat garlic without worrying about being socially unacceptable. Of course, I use garlic in my cooking, and then it doesn’t smell, but we love eating baked fish with home made garlic mayonnaise 😉

Are you hungry yet? I’ll give you my garlic mayonnaise recipe in just a minute, but first let me tell you about the Propresser Garlic Press I received for review. It’s sturdy, looks great and most important, makes using garlic easy as pie.

Garlic Mayonnaise Recipe:

  • 1 head of garlic
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of oil

Crush the garlic (with the Propresser Garlic Press you don’t even need to peel it), add the salt and then slowly mix in the oil without changing direction. It’s really that simple, and it’s delicious with fish, Lima beans, and home made fries! YUM!

If garlic isn’t part of your diet, you might want to think about the benefits. Here are just a few:

  • strengthens the immune system
  • helps lower high blood pressure
  • helps prevent heart disease
  • helps repel mosquitoes (I bet you didn’t know about that one 😉

If you want your own Propresser garlic press by Orblue, you can get it at amazon here:  http://www.amazon.com/70-OFF-TODAY-Propresser-Stainless/dp/B00HHLNRVE

Managing Fear During Growth Spurts

We all deal with fears, stress and anxiety at times as we expand and grow.  It seems to be a natural part of life and brings our attention to the fact that something is missing for us in that moment.  What is missing during those times is usually a feeling of safety and certainty.

Here are some simple techniques to help create stability and center us during our growth spurts as conscious entrepreneurs.

Break it Down. When facing new challenges that elicit fear, overwhelm or stress the first thing to do is break it down into a series of small steps.  Complete each small step one at a time to make it more manageable and increase your chances of success.

Take a Breath. Sometimes we get stressed when everything seems to happen all at once. When this occurs, take a deep breath and refocus your mind away from the challenge for a few minutes. Get some fresh air, listen to music, or do an activity that will give you a fresh perspective on the situation.

Visualise. At times we can experience fearful thoughts that may be hard to manage. Visualize a Red STOP sign to interrupt the negative thought. Take a breath and replace the thought with a positive affirmation eg. ‘I am always given the courage to move through difficult situations and succeed’.

Get the Facts. When we encounter challenging situations that upset us it is valuable to remember to get all the facts. Gathering the facts prevents us from scaring ourselves with exaggerated and fearful assumptions.  Check out what is real and what is not by asking yourself – ‘Is this real?’, ‘What is the worst that could happen?’ ‘What support could I get to help me with this?’

Re-focus. We always have a choice to dwell on the negative things in life or choose to focus on all the positive things around us and acknowledge and be grateful for those. As they say ‘Energy flows, where attention goes’. Whatever we focus on expands – choose what you focus on.

Take Action. Ask – ‘What small action can I take right now that will make me feel in charge?’ then take it.  Taking action gets you moving rather than going round and round in your head, empowering you to move through any fears and anxieties that pop up one step at a time.

Everyone faces fears at some time in their life especially when trying new things, it is normal. Overcoming fears and anxieties is not always easy and might take some hard work and persistence but by using strategies to face, move through and overcome these fears your trust in your own abilities grows along with your self confidence and self belief.

So, you could look at fear as a positive opportunity to grow and expand as it is moving you towards a stronger believe in yourself, how good is that?
