Acure Organics For The Kids

Acure Organics Baby line

Acure Organics is a family owned and operated company that provides natural and organic personal care products. I am always on the look out for new natural products for my family. Ever since my children were born I wanted to make sure I bathed them in natural or organic soaps. I was excited to try Acure Organic's Baby Line products. They make lotion, 4-in-1 wash, and other great products. 

Bare Baby Lotion is fragrance free, which is good for those who may be allergic to fragrances. It is made with ingredients such as colloidal oatmeal, cucumber, and calendula. 

Acure Organics Baby's Day Out

Baby's Day Out has three sticks. Baby Fix It stick is for the boo boo's. If your little one gets hurt, this balm is supposed to make it feel better. We haven't used it yet but when they get hurt I will make sure to put it on them. I'm all for natural remedies. And if a natural remedy can make a boo boo better, I say lets try it. Baby Bug stick will help keep the bugs away. I think I'm going to start using this myself because every time I sit on the patio I get bitten by a mosquito. Baby Sun SPF stick is non nano uncoated zinc oxide. I have to be honest, we do not use natural sun screen protection. But we should. This is great for all of us. More for my daughter and hubby because they both get red pretty fast. Always re-apply as the directions say. Or even more so, never take a chance. 
What I really love about these sticks is they are the perfect size to throw in a pocket book or diaper bag.

Acure Yummy Baby 

My favorite out of all of these baby products is the Yummy Baby 4-in-1 Foamer. We use this the most. You can use it as bubble bath, shampoo, body wash, and hand soap. It is also paraben free, sulfate free, and phthalate free. It has a nice citrus scent. I like the foam dispenser, it makes washing easier. The kids can press down on it themselves and not make a huge mess. 

Overall, I am very satisfied with these natural products for my children. They are natural and many products are also USDA organic. They carry skin care, body care, lip care, and hair care products also. Another thing I love about this company is they are environmentally friendly. Green office, green products, and green packaging is something I like to stand behind as a customer. Finding brands and businesses that care about the environment is important in my opinion.

Tealated Review and Giveaway

Tealated Tea

(*I received complimentary samples for this review. All thoughts are 100% my own.*)

Tealated is an online shop that sells loose leaf tea. They offer many different types of tea. I may be addicted to coffee but I also have a love of tea. In the past I have tried black tea, green tea, and chai tea. I was excited to try the new tea Tealated has given me.

Tealated Loose Leaf Tea

Each pouch comes with enough for a few cups of tea. The directions say to use a tablespoon. Each pouch has steeping times on them also. You can use tea bags which can be found here at the Tealated shop. You can choose to shop by tea categories such as black teas, green teas, or many others. You can also get a tea sampler for yourself or as a gift. The sampler comes with 11 different types of tea. I think this is a perfect gift for a tea lover.

Another thing I love about Tealated, besides their tea of course, is they give back. They donate 3% of their sales to Water.org which is a great charity to help find solutions for safe water and sanitation. I think it is wonderful when businesses and brands give back. It makes me happy to shop with them.

Another tea I enjoy is Oolong Tea. It has many health benefits and is a tea I can drink without adding anything to it. If you would like to learn more about different teas go to the Tealated blog. You can learn all about each tea you drink.

There is something nice about drinking loose leaf tea. It tastes better then what you buy in the store. I think if you never tried tea this way before, you should give it a shot.

Tealated is sponsoring a giveaway here on Barefoot and Loving It. You can win a Iced Tea Gift Set.This set comes with a Takeya Iced Tea Maker and Tealated Tea. This is a perfect summer giveaway. I love drinking Iced Tea in the summer time. The winner will also get a digital copy of Iced Tea: Easy, Delicious Recipes, and How To.

This giveaway is open to the US and 18+. All entries are optional. Fill out the Rafflecopter below.

Netflix Original Series Dragons: Race to the Edge

Dragons: Race to the Edge

Netflix has come out with another great original series. Dragons: Race to the Edge has Hiccup and Toothless going on all new adventures. There will be new dragons with new abilities. I don't know about you but we are big fans of How to Train Your Dragon. We love dragons of any kind. And Toothless is super cute! We started to watch a couple of the episodes and so far they are a lot of fun. Check out this exciting trailer.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

If you haven't seen How To Train Your Dragon 2 yet, I suggest you do. This one is sweet, but I won't tell you why. I love when movies have things you wouldn't expect. Dream Works never fails to entertain. The quality of animation is well done. It is adventure packed. 

What adventures have you and your family been on this summer?

dōTERRA Essential Oils Review and Giveaway

Essential Oils

dōTERRA Essential Oils is something I always wanted to try. I like learning about essential oils and the benefits they offer. You can use them on your body and around the home. 

Ann Summers was nice enough to give me a few samples to try out. She has her own website here. Check out the great information she has which includes DIY and Recipes. I was able to try Peppermint, Lemon, and Lavender essential oils. Lavender has been a long time favorite of mine. 

What I like about Lavender:

-promotes general sense of well being
-can be applied to reflex points

What I like about Lemon:

-use to remove gum
-wood stain
-invigorating scent
-soothe sore throat

What I like about Peppermint:

-works as an energizer
-stimulating to the mind
-fever reducer
-may help motion sickness

There are a ton of other possible benefits for essential oil use. These are just a few things that I like about these oils. If I get a cold, I look to natural remedies first. Before I had my kiddos I went to a school to learn about Acupuncture. I never finished the program but I do believe that alternative medicine and natural remedies can work. Of course, Doctors are important also. 

Do you use essential oils? If you would like to try one be sure to enter this giveaway for Wild Orange.

Giveaway is open to US and 18+.
