Treat Yourself: Ora’s Amazing Herbal All-Purpose Salve

Ora's Amazing Herbal All-Purpose Salve

A few weeks ago I wrote about Abe Market’s new $2 sampling program, where you can try out an assortment of products for just $2 each, including shipping. It’s a little like a subscription box, I suppose, except that you can choose exactly what you want to receive. (Note: There’s a limit of 3 samples that can be requested per day.)

Right now one of the $2 samples includes a 1 oz. jar of Ora’s Amazing Herbal All-Purpose Salve.

Description: True to its name, this salve truly is all purpose. Mildly scented only with essential oils of rosemary, thuja (cedar leaf) and tea tree, it is great for use as a first aid ointment on scrapes, scars, bites, mild burns and piercings. We also use it as a lotion on cuticles, cracked feet, as an after exfoliating treatment, as a wrinkle cream, and as a no nonsense hand treatment. We have even used it as a lip balm when an actual lip balm wasn’t handy (although that doesn’t happen often around here!). Because our base oil is slow infused in healing herbs, this salve works exceptionally well to help dry, irritated, and inflamed tissue. Every ingredient has been carefully selected for its healing, soothing, and protective qualities.

I can’t say I know anything about this salve, but based on that description I’ll definitely be picking up my own sample to try! I’ve been really into all-natural beauty remedies, including salves, this summer, so this is pretty much right up my alley.

Taste Trunk Review – The Sweet Trunk

Last month I mentioned that I had picked up a discount voucher and was going to check out The Sweet Trunk from Taste Trunk. Well, that box came and I was so unimpressed that I didn’t bother writing a review.

A funny thing happened, though.

I forgot to cancel my subscription and another Taste Trunk arrived at my door this month. Normally I hate when I forget to cancel, but it ended up being a fortuitous mistake this time around as the July Sweet Trunk was 100% better. I’m not sure if last month’s box was so bad because I had used a coupon and thus received a crappy box, if this box varies from bad to awesome each month, or if last month was just an off month. Regardless, I wasn’t expecting much from the July box so to say that it far exceeded my expectations would be an understatement.

Here’s what I received in The Sweet Trunk from Taste Trunk:

Gummy Bears

Bissinger’s Gummy Pandas – These were JUST what the doctor ordered yesterday. As soon as I poked through the box I had downed the package of blackberry hibiscus Gummy Pandas. They were absolutely delicious. These are two full-size bags and, if I’m not mistaken, this is a product that is sold at Whole Foods.

2014-07-21 20.32.10

Suite Foods Liège Waffles – So, these were dessert last night. I had the chocolate drizzled waffle and my husband had the non-chocolate waffle. These were a little stale coming out of the packaging, but were perfect after 20 seconds in the microwave. Apparently Suite Foods is a waffle shop in San Francisco that I’m going to have to visit the next time I’m out west.
