My families first cold is upon us, I simply dread cold season. With 3 kids its a constant fight to keep people healthy and stop the cold from spreading.  I love, love, love the new Burt’s Bee’s Aloe & Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer its smells so fresh and clean. My kids love spraying it so its less of a fight to keep their hands germ free.

My throat is starting to give me the early warning signs of a cold, in between  sucking back vitamin fizz drinks I have been sucking on the new Burt’s Bees  Natural Throat Drops, the menthol cools my sore throat and the honey lemon flavor is yummy.

Now if I could only fast forward to April and be out of cold season!

NEW Natural Throat Drops ($1.99): These 100% natural throat drops are made from sweet, golden honey. Formulated with cooling Menthol and soothing Eucalyptus Oil, the delicious throat drops provide fast, effective, soothing relief for sore throats. Available in two great flavors, the drops contain just the right amount of naturally soothing ingredients to provide instant comfort.


Aloe & Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer ($5.00): This all-natural sanitizer eliminates up to 99.99% of germs anytime, anywhere AND soothe hands. Free of synthetic or petro-chemical ingredients, the effective formula cleanses and soothes with beneficial ingredients from nature, including Aloe and Witch Hazel.

Celebrate Earth Day With The “Best Eco-Friendly Beauty Products”

You can feel great about adding these environmentally friendly products to your beauty regimen! These are our picks for the best beauty products that are good to your body and the planet.

Best Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Desert Essence Organics Green Apple & Ginger Thickening & Volumizing Shampoo, $8.99, Whole Foods Market.

Testers fell for the fresh apple scent. Their fuller, shinier hair was the clincher.

Best Mineral Makeup
L’Oreal Bare Naturale Soft-Focus Mineral Finish, $15.25, drugstores.

The translucent powder absorbs oil and minimizes lines and wrinkles, giving you a flawless finish in seconds. It’s preservative-free for sensitive types, and testers liked the built-in brush applicator.

Best Paraben-Free Body Lotion
Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, $8.99, drugstores.

This shimmery moisturizer generated happy buzz. Royal jelly contains essential amino acids and B vitamins, and the lotion has no chemical preservatives.

Best All-Natural Body Wash
Clark’s Botanicals Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash, $46,

A blend of salicylic acid and willow-bark extract, this formula gently washes away post-workout sweat and oil and promotes cell turnover, leaving skin healthy and blemish-free. One staffer saw a difference in her skin after only one shower.

Best Organic Lip Smoother
Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butter, $3.69, Walgreens.

It has so many healthy ingredients (organic carrot extract, coconut oil, jojoba-seed oil, shea butter) there simply isn’t room in the tube for anything bad for your lips — or the planet. Oh, and it kept our pouts soft too.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.


Last Sunday we were all excited to hear we would see snow.  In Portland we maybe get a day or two of snow a year and it usually all gets rained away within 24hrs. Well we are now on are 8th day of snow and about 13 inches on the ground in the metro area. While that would be nothing to a lot of people it grinds our city to a halt. I don’t think we have all ever wished for rain like we are now.

Even some of the stores are closed don’t they know all of us procrastinators still have Christmas shopping to do? So I am getting to the point of turning our tennis rackets into snow shoes or hand making gifts. For the sake of my loved ones I think I will go with the tennis racket snow shoe idea. I still have two more stockings to buy and I was excited to see all the great gift packs Burt’s Bees is offering this year, here are a few worth a walk on tennis rackets!

For my hard to shop for oldest brother who is very into earth friendly products, this is the perfect stocking stuffer!
