Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Review

Since becoming a vegetarian I've spent a lot of time researching natural ingredients for cooking and solutions for household and beauty needs. One of the things that kept coming up both online and in conversations was coconut oil. People talked about how tasty it was in recipes as well as how useful it could be for your skin, body and even around the house.

Prefense 24-hour Protection Hand Sanitizer Review and Giveaway -Now Closed

When I was much, much younger I worked at a nursing home first in the kitchen as a cook and then on the floor as a unit helper. I learn many valuable lessons there and wouldn’t trade that experience for the world. One extremely important lesson they taught us was how crucial it was for the health of ourselves and the clients we worked for to wash our hands. Now I must admit that working there did turn me into somewhat of a germaphobe. I cringe when I have no choice, but to go into a public rest room. In fact, I refuse to sit down, flush all toilets using my foot, wash my hands at least two … [Read more...]
