1. Castor Oil
Castor oil is seriously amazing. It’s one of the few beauty products that I’ve used consistently over the years, and it yields great results for an array of health issues.
One of my favorite uses for it is helping with eyelash/eyebrow hair growth.
I just rub it on at night, and it helps my lashes and brows look healthier and have a thicker appearance.
I was introduced to these at Living Without’s gluten-free convention, and while I didn’t get to try them there, I made a point to seek them out at my local Whole Foods here in Tucson.
These are delicious! They’re literally made from mung beans and water, so there’s no issue of gluten, nuts, starches, or gums, AND they boast a whopping 25 grams of protein per serving (there’s about four servings in one bag).
I can’t believe how tasty they are, and my kids gobbled them up. A great buy if you’re looking for a healthy pasta alternative.
I watched the trailer for it, which was about three minutes long, and was in tears by the end of it. The movie is almost two hours long, but I plan to see it to be informed.
The reasons that I haven’t adopted this popular lifestyle are complex, but movies like this really compel me to at least limit the animal products I ingest.
I recently purchased a little bottle of this for its purported healing properties for the skin.
Upon first use, I wasn’t impressed, but after using it now for a couple of weeks, I’ve been very pleased with my skin tone and hydration.
I use it every other night (along with my Homemade Vitamin C Serum on the off nights), as I find it the most effective for myself this way, and I really enjoy the earthy smell, though some reviewers didn’t.
It’s also touted to be a natural sunscreen!
5. Buff Dudes
One of my favorite things to do is cruise YouTube for recipe, workout, and beauty videos. I’ve stumbled across some great material, and recently my husband and I were cracking up over these guys.
In addition to pizza, they have tons of videos for workout techniques and even a spoof of a scene from Dumb and Dumber you should check out if you want a good laugh.
