I previously reviewed the Elements Premium Essential Oil Blends and Raindrop diffuser I use them in my bedroom throughout the day and night. I love them so much, I had to add them to my Top gifts for Migraine, Chronic Illness and those in need of Self Care.
I now have a diffuser and oils to use in my main living space also. I received* the Radiance diffuser and Master Aromatherapist kit and it has been a gift my whole family enjoys. The interesting thing about having Chronic Migraine is that smells are very personal and a constantly evolving sense. Some days I diffuse oils for an extended amount of time and other days I can’t stand any smell in my home. Some days I like mixed oils and others I like them pure. This is why the Master Aromatherapist kit works so well for me. It “features some of the best, most important and versatile pure essential oils, certified organic oils and four artisanally-crafted essential oil blends found nowhere else.” It’s perfect for all of my needs while providing a beautiful box to hold my essentials oils and future bottles I purchase.
The Radiance diffuser is beautiful! It blends perfectly with my décor. Organic Aromas diffusers use “Bernoulli’s principle” which is a nebulizer requiring no heat and no water. The diffuser comes with built-in “touch sensor” light switch that allows you to turn the LED light on or off with a simple brush of your finger whenever you wish. This is great for the days I can’t stand any light. It also has usage cycles of 2 minutes On, and 1 minute Off with auto Shut-off after 120 minutes. I also enjoy the feature that allows personalization of “volume” which gives me control over how much I diffuse. A little oil goes a long way and each day I require different oils, amounts of oils diffused, and amounts of light and duration of oils being diffused. With my variety of needs, Organic Aromas diffusers and oils allow me to choose what is best for each situation.
Along with making handmade aromatherapy diffusers using specialty glass and high quality wood, there are numerous varieties, shapes, colors and sizes of essential oil diffusers to choose from. The certified oils and kits are organic essential oils and blends made with the finest quality plants, flowers, tree barks and other natural materials. The people at Organic Aromas are founded on “the principles of hard work, innovation and the genuine care for the well-being of our customers.”

Recently, I went to Disney World with my family. I love Disney World! My family, the adventures, the magic and the fun. It all was a dream come true.
After my last experience at the boutique that turns my daughter into a princess, I feared the hair spray smell. The last time we went, the lights were really bright. Beyond the lights was the smell. Oooooooooh the smell. I had started my day with a migraine. Standing in air that was saturated with strong hair spray made me really sick!
This time, I was prepared. I had my Axon Optics in my purse and wore a scarf that I sprayed with my favorite essential oil to cover my nose. As we were called back and I entered the room, I was confused. Where was the smell?
As we settled in, I asked our fair Godmother what was different. The air was breathable without trigger and I felt much more relaxed. The answer was Original Sprout. She then explained to me how their last hair spray was so stiff that it was giving little girls headaches. My ears perked up when she said the word “headache” because I live to prevent headaches in my family.
Disney World switched to Original Sprout products to give the little girls a more natural and less stiff hairstyle. I was so impressed with their response to give families a “soft, strong, healthy hold” that provides thicker luscious locks all day & night. The Natural Finishing Mist is “for all hair types & textures with organic extracts & plant proteins to help strengthen & smooth.” The soothing organic extracts made a huge difference as a migraine trigger and breathable air.
The experience was so much more enjoyable with using Original Sprout products. Thank you to Disney World for making the responsible switch to Original Sprout and thank you to Original Sprout for the products to try after falling in love with your line.

This week I got another delivery from Sprinly, my favorite vegan fresh delivery meals. If you live in the Cleveland area, I highly recommend them! Although Sprinly rewards me for my recommendation, I only write about products and services that I truly love and use!
I fully admit that I am not vegan. Nor do I particularly love vegetables. But Sprinly (use code REF7LVIUO2MLV for $20 off!!!) is some kind of wonderful and somehow gets me to love both! I order them when I need a break from cooking, when I’m feeling like I need a reset in my diet and when I’m craving them. I end up craving them because their meals are so delicious. I feel so full from their meals and often can’t finish them in one siting. I’m always so surprised by how satisfied I am after each meal but I guess that’s what clean proper nutrition tastes like.
What an inspiration to try!!!!!
To read more about Sprinly, here’s my review
If you are already a Sprinly customer (possibly by my recommendation;)) please vote for them for “Best of Cleveland 2017.” Nominations are in and Sprinly has been nominated for “best local startup.” Please go to the link, fill in the information and vote for Sprinly to receive this much deserved title.
If you live in the Cleveland area or know someone who does, please let them know about this amazing company. It’s a great feeling knowing I’m eating good food, made my good people, trying to spread good vibes, all delivered to my door. YUM!
Thinking about trying? Use code REF7LVIUO2MLV for $20 off!!!
I was given the opportunity to try Fay Farm Rejuvenation lotion as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review may remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
I had the opportunity to try Rejuvenation Lotion by Fay Farm and really love it for my neck and shoulder pain related to Migraines. “Rejuvenation Lotion is made with all organic ingredients and is paraben and phthalate free. Great for use on sore, aching muscles. Loved by people suffering from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, neuropathy and other deep joint and muscle pain. Magnesium Oil provides deeper relief.” http://thefayfarm.com/
I love it! I’m always looking for new ways to treat myself organically and naturally. The Rejuvenation lotion is a soft, lightly fragrant lotion that goes on without being greasy. I suffer from neck and shoulder pain leading into the base of my head and up. I use the lotion on my shoulders and rub it as far into my hair line as I can get and on my temples and forehead. It is relaxing and seems to help my tense aching muscles quickly. It doesn’t have the medicine smell and burning that many rubs do and a little goes a long way.
The Fay Farm is run by a family dedicated to creating quality natural body care products. They use milk from their herd of Nubian goats and herbs from their greenhouse from their sustainable organic farm. None of the products contain parabens, alcohol, mineral oil, or phthalates. Knowing that I’m putting a product on my skin that was made by a passionate family using their organic farm makes using their products even better!
As with most healthy, natural, hand crafted products, there comes a cost. I find the products to be a bit pricey but comparable to other health products. When choosing my products, I consider quality and how it will impact my health. A cheaper lotion may fit a better budget but will add chemicals and toxins to my sensitive system. Cheap products are not worth triggering a migraine or inflaming my aching muscles with toxic chemicals. Fay Farm rejuvenation lotion is worth not only the quality of product but the peace of mind that it carries with it.
