On to the Review:
I know most of you moms are probably as skeptical as I am about herbal remedies. When I was growing up, my grandmother swore by Tea Tree (and still does). We used to laugh anytime anything would happen (scratch, rash, etc) and say to put tea tree on it. We laughed, but it did honestly work. I recently came across Mobu Herbals, a company that has an Herbal Remedy for some of the most common problems. I was able to try the Kava Calm Balm and the Slim Stick lib balm.
Kava Calm: Uses herbs that can help alleviate anxiety, stress, etc. and help promote relaxation and restful sleep. All you do is apply the balm to your temples, wrists, or other areas of tension. I was very intrigued when reading the website description of the Kava Calm. I had no idea if it would help me, but I was definitely willing to try! I have used this several times during the day, and it has helped me. I haven’t used it at night (guess I need to go put it by my bed now), but I have no doubt that it would help me then, too. I received it just in time for our girls’ trip that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, and I was so glad! With 3 under 3 years old, I definitely needed something to help me stay calm and relaxed! After trying this product, I definitely want to try some of their other herbs (like the A.M. pain and the X-tracting Balm). I will say that the herb smell is strong at first, but it goes away quickly. I’ve gotten used to it and don’t even notice it now.
Slim Stick Lip Balm: The Slim Stick is not made for quick weight loss, but it is made to help appetite control without having to take pills. It has green tea flavor which helps curb your appetite, and the Gymnema herb stops your desire for sugar. You can easily use this through-out the day. After the Kava Calm worked so well, I was excited (but still slightly skeptical) about the Slim Stick. I put it in my purse to use before meals and during the day when I felt I “HAD” to have a snack. I have used it several times, and it definitely seems to help. I was actually contemplating eating one of Sydney’s teething cookies yesterday on the way to the library, and I remembered I had the Slim Stick with me, so I put it on…and I did not eat the cookie! While this isn’t a “miracle diet” or anything, it does help reduce cravings. There are many weight loss enhancers that claim to do the same thing, but how many come in a lip balm that you can use anytime, anywhere?
