haul from iherb!
heh! please indulge me and allow me to blabber on about my loots! yes, i’m aware it does seem like i’m on a shopping spree recently, though they are generally household items and healthier alternatives to the commercial detergents.
my parent’s order from iherb arrived a couple of weeks ago, and take a look at the hauls!
as you already know – I am switching all my hand wash to Dr Bronner’s cos’ it has less nasty chemicals. My parents got the Rose Hemp and it smells really nice! a little bubble gum like smell – in a good way. Managed to convince my sis to change too and she got the eucalyptus and lavender.
i got magnesium oil for myself – see link for what it’s supposed to help you with. for me, I mainly wanted to improve my sleep quality (cos’ i wake up an average of 3 times per night!) and boost my energy level cos’ I feel lethargic and sluggish at times. I rub it to the base of my feet and the 2nd night I did it – I actually slept throught the entire night w/o waking up!!!
While on holiday I didn’t bring it but still managed to sleep well. Back home, I was lazy to apply (cos’ I slept well on holiday so figured doesn’t hurt to skip it), and the past 2 nights – i woke about 3 -5 times. Sigh. Not quite sure if it’s cos’ I didn’t use the magnesium or the late afternoon coffee or the later nights i sleep. probably a combination of all I suppose.
oh. you might like to know that you can use the magnesium oil as a deodorant! they say to spray it directly on your arm pits, and smell-be-gone! Haven’t tried that yet since I still have my Soapwalla deodorant.
There’s also pet shampoo, dental floss and shaver blades – quite amazed at the range that iherb has!
Now I know why so many people love online shopping. if done properly and at the right places, it yields a lot of cost savings than from buying retail!
oh. only thing – this time round, the delivery took 2 whole weeks before it arrived. maybe cos’ it’s was during the new year?
