.Elm Natural Products is focused on providing all natural essential oil products made with only 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. There are countless benefits to using essential oils for a healthier lifestyle.Featuring all natural bath and body, relief and home products.
The ingredients in Oh! de toilette spray act as a barrier on the surface of the toilet bowl water and traps odors beneath the surface. In fact, the essential oils will make your bathroom experience smell better than ever. This was the strangest product that has ever been sent to me. Living in an apartment with a room mate we use this a lot. Even after taking a shower we spray this spray because it smells so good and it still light enough not to mind. I don't really know how to review this product. I never thought I would use it in the first place. My room mate was the first to use it and loved it. This product isn't for me but my room mate loves it and how discrete it is.
This was another odd product that I thought I would never use but this came in handy when traveling. I put them in my purse when I was in the airport and on the plane and they came in handy when I wanted to refresh right as the plane landed. I don't know how to review these either because they worked but having regular toothpicks could do the trick.
This review was very underwhelming but I wanted to showcase the products that have been sent to me in all fairness. Just because a company sends me products doesn't mean I will rave about them. I would love to try the other essential oil products to change my mind about this company. I think the message of what they are creating is great but some products are unnecessary
I am finally back and I am swamped with school work. SOOOO many companies have sent me things to review for you guys! My mail room attendant was not happy with me when I had 20 packages waiting. Not a lot of people like when I review things so instead of doing 50 million review posts I am going to put the products all in one post
HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE PACKAGING! It is so simple but it runs with the theme I have going in the dorm, I have never really used a cleanser before so I didn't know what to think but my face was so clean and felt like it never felt before. I apply the cleanser every morning after I wake up and right before I put my makeup on, it's a great thing to wake up to and throughout the day even though my makeup is on my face feels clean. The Cleanser is made with Raw Honey and other natural ingredients and it doesn't feel sticky at all. I haven't used it as a makeup remover yet because I am very picky with makeup removers.
To be honest I really do not need to use the Plumping Facial Toner, the name was a big turn off for me because my face is already plump enough. The only reason that I really enjoy this product is because it has Rosehip Oil in it and that helps keep your skin healthy. I apply this once a week on Sunday just to keep my face in check. I recommend this to people that have fine lines and wrinkles or people like me that want to keep their skin happy and healthy
The Facial Serum acts as a moisturizer even though it is an oil. I don't use this product in my everyday facial routine because I like Tarte's face oil the best and I feel that works for my skin better. This serum works just the same and is great for people on a budget.
CRUNCHY MAMA BEAR also sent me a Relaxing Body Oil but I can't review it because I am giving it away!!!! Just submit a contact form entry telling me why you need to relax
Saltz & Co sent me a million products to try out but sadly I only enjoyed 3 of them. I will never review something I don't like and put up something false just because a company sent them to me. This is not saying they are a bad company but I am very picky about what I put on my skin or something that I have.
The thing that I really love from them was the Lavender Spray that you spray on your pillow or around your room at night to relax you. THIS STUFF WORKS! I usually use a balm that I rub on the bottom of my feet but this stuff makes me nod off in no time. I don't spray it around my room because lavender is a strong scent, I do two sprays of it on my pillow right as I am going to bed and it puts me to sleep in an instant. Anything to help me sleep I will try out
I have been wearing heels or sandals most of the summer and now to my classes since Atlanta is still hot, and my feet have taken a beating not being in enclosed shoes all the time. The melting Foot Balm works wonders for my feet. When I get home from school or from the gym I rub my feet with this and put my slippers on. It is not too greasy and not sticky. When I take my slippers off at night my feet feel so soft and that cares on in the morning and throughout the day.
I am a sucker for face masks and I was so excited to try this Dead Sea Mud Mask, I have so many mud masks in my collection and I love them all. This wasn't different from the rest, it did have a cooling effect that my face loved but the mask is like every other Dead Sea Mud Mask. I do recommend buying a brush or applicator because things can get messy
This is the most expensive face oil I have tried, I don't spend a lot of money on makeup or face products but sometimes you have to. This face oil is life changing. It is made out of pressed planted-based oils and it has a lot of claims like: repairing sun damage, protects from stress, softens fine lines, and moisturizes. I don't really need to smooth fine lines like I said before and I don't have a lot of sun damage but it evened out my skin tone which I needed. This is the only skincare product that has evened out my skin tone and now I swear by it. I don't have dry skin and thats what it is for so I only use half a drop for my face. If you don't have to money please don't feel like you have to get this, there are so many other face oils out there. If I had fine lines and wrinkles I might be telling a different story.
organic to green stole my heart with the packaging. I was so excited when I saw this bag. I got sent the GInger collection and I was scared I wasn't going to like it, coconut oil is a little too much for my skin but this was perfect. The oil in the package I ended up using for a neck and chest oil because I have so many other face oils. My chest has been breaking out for awhile but this cleared it up real quick. I put it on right after I get out of the shower and it makes my skin glow.
The two other products I can't review because I am giving them away, along with the cute bag that they came in! I am overwhelmed with products and I want to give them to someone who can love them. Submit a contact form telling me your favorite use for coconut oil
Those are all the products. If you sent me something I did not receive it
I am on the road right now and I will be on to road until September 12. Going back to college! I am excited but I wish I could stay at home for a couple more weeks. My face has been breaking out with all the fast food and not properly taking care of it on the road. Before I left I was sent a beautiful package from HEARTSCENT Aromatherapy and I have started using it on the road. The products are really easy to use and I have been able to have a skincare routine whilst traveling.
All the products have natural and simple ingredients, ones you can pronounce, and they are designed for you. The packaging is also amazing.
I don't use facial cleansers because my face hasn't found the one it likes yet. I had a bad breakout on my chin and cheeks from sunscreen. Only two uses of just this cleanser and my breakout disappeared and I didn't have any marks to show that I had a breakout. To apply, I wet my face with a wash cloth and used one pump of the product and applied all over my face and wiped the product off with a hot wash cloth. Everyone knows that I love face oil and this cleanser is infused with Argan oil. With this cleanser I can take out two steps on my regular routine to have a faster travel routine.
of course I had to throw a face oil in here. I don't have a problem with dry skin, I have combination skin but this works as a good night face oil. Again, I only use about one pump, I can see these products lasting me awhile because the payoff with little is great. After putting this on I let this work for about ten minutes before removing with a hot washcloth. When removing this product your face will feel cleaner than ever before and the product just smells cleans. If that makes sense
this body butter is supposed to be used st night to relax you and work over night. I don't use it all over I just use it on my legs and I hate to say but it works a lot better than my homemade argan oil body butter. My legs feel clean in the morning and they feel soft, they oil does not make you feel as oily use you would think. It feels like a regular dream as you rub it in
traveling on the road can be stressful but with the right products it can be a breeze
What an interesting brand!!! I have been dying to try them out because of how unique they are! If I had to work at any skin care/beauty company, this would be the one! (Are y'all hiring?). To give the products all a fair try I got the sampler kit.
The first thing that I fell in love with is that their products do not contain any harsh chemicals or synthetic additives/preservatives and they are all coconut oil based! What a great company.
Dr.Bronner's products are made with organic and fair trade ingredients, are biodegradable, and packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. What more could you ask for? These products aren't just good for the environment they are great for you. I got to test out a few products and I am fully converted to this brand.
OKAY THIS PRODUCT IS FREAKING AMAZING! I have been wanting to try this product for a few months. After seeing this product in a Buzzfeed article, it has been on my Amazon Wishlist ever since. Not only is this product hand sanitizer it is also an air freshener. Throughout this post you will see that all this products have multi uses. This product is always in my purse or in my art bag. When working with paint or charcoal or even markers I get covered and I need something that is powerful but does not dry out my hands. THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL and I am already ordering replacements to have it stashed in every bag I own.
Okay I have always been a little skeptical about organic toothpaste, I just felt like it could never get the job done quite as well as the "real thing", but my mouth has never felt so clean. The peppermint toothpaste has to be my favorite out of the two, the cinnamon one is a little too overpowering but both have the same result. I do wish that the peppermint toothpaste came in a bigger tube because I go through toothpaste a lot.
No one can have enough lip balm. I am a devout Burt's Bees customer because my skin and lips are very sensitive and only a few products work. The lemon lime lip balm was a little weird for me but I put it on in the morning under my lipstick during my morning routine. At night when I am doing my night time routine I use the peppermint lip balm after I brush my teeth and it lasts all night until the morning. I am used to putting lip balm on about every three hours but this stuff is life changing.
There is nothing these soaps can't do! Use it as a face toner, regular soap, bathroom cleaning, house cleaning and many more uses that would blow your mind. I break out using scented soaps so I stay away from them but there are no detergents or chemicals that aren't natural so I decided to test these out. Both smell amazing but my favorite is the Eucalyptus soap. Since these soaps have so many uses, I use each one for a different purpose. Like the lip balm, each soap is in both my morning and night routine. I use the Hemp Rose soap as a face toner in the morning, it is nice and refreshing and the first thing I use in my morning routine. For the Hemp Eucalyptus soap, I use it as the last product in my night time routine. Eucalyptus is a calming scent so I use it as a nighttime toner instead of a strong scented toner that would wake me up. Again I wish I could get these in bigger bottles with their many uses I am bound to run out of product in no time.
Magic Balm! No false claims this stuff is pure magic. I am really picky with lotion and balms because I like to home make my own so I know what is in it and if my skin breaks out I know what is in the product. This helps because it is unscented so I know I won't break out. Unlike other products it is the perfect balance of moisturizing and drying but not drying your skin. You can use this as body butter, face cream, hand cream, foot cream, or any other cream you can think of. The tin is cute as well so you can stay in the theme of recycling and reuse the packaging. Y'all know I am a sucker for packaging.
Here is another Magic Balm that is actually pure magic. I have used a lot of products to feel a sense of calm and help me sleep throughout the night. This is a product I do not use very often because I do not have a lot of aches and pains. But after attending a concert, I decided to test this magic. My back was killing me but after 20 minutes of applying this magic balm I felt relief and the pain was gone. I got a great night sleep and when I woke up the pain was still gone.

Guys I am obsessed with knitting, yarn and everything to do with it. I never thought I would get into it because yarn is so expensive but it is so relaxing and it is a hobby that helps me keep my hands busy. I have been waiting to post this because I wanted to try out all the looms that are offered at Michaels before I said anything. I started with the hat loom and that fuel my obsession.
This loom was my starter, I know some people will say this is not knitting but I do not pick up skills fast and this was the easiest option for me. I usually use the bigger loom for hats that I am making for people because I can not guess their size. It takes me about one to two days to do a hat depending on how many hours I can sit down and just do that. I am planning to sell my hats and the information will be at the bottom of this post. The kit that Michaels offers comes with everything you need but the directions are a bit confusing and it is easier to google them or figure it out yourself.
The second kit that I got was the scarf loom. I have only used this twice and I love it. The downside is that it takes a lot of yarn to make one single scarf because of the technique. My first time I used the medium sized (the purple one) to make a wide scarf and that took about four days and three balls of yarn. For my second one I used the smallest one (the blue one) and it took me about 2 days and two balls of yarn. Depending on the length and width you will go through a bunch of yarn
As I said I am planning to sell my hats, I am in the process of building a website and building an inventory. As a college student I will always struggle to have money and all the funds that I make from my hats and scarves go to paying for art supplies and paying off my tuition. I will have the link posted soon and I would love it if you could donate or buy something.
I am also looking for yarn companies and anything that is willing to donate or let me promote them with yarn. Yarn can get expensive and I am not looking for handouts for my hobby but they would be nice. I have already contacted a few
I fell inlove with this company just looking at their websites. I was in tears laughing at the names of their products and I knew I had to feature them on here. They are a bit pricey for my taste but sometimes a good splurge is needed. Since it was a bit pricey for me I settled with a green nail polish called "Salad Bar". Halloween is coming up and this color is great if you are feeling a bit witchy.
The bottle is pretty big which softens me up a bit to the price. The swatch I did on a fake nail is with flash on to show the sparkles. The flash makes it look blue but in real life it is a beautiful green color. I will definitely feature this in a halloween look book so you can see it without flash at a later time. I only needed two coats to get the color smooth and with a nice top coat the sparkles are amazing.

I am getting feedback from you guys so I can make an amazing holiday post)
Usually when I travel I do not wear makeup because I do not want to waste it and I am not around people I know. For me makeup is part of my routine in the morning and I usually have to wake up earlier to do it but I am not waking up early on vacation.
But then I want to post on social media and that is around people I know and have not seen me without makeup. My eyebrows and the acne scars on my face are the things I worry about the most. But I do not want to but makeup on for just one silly snapchat post that will go away in 24 hours. I have learned that makeup does not define me and that I look good without makeup and that I am the hardest judge to myself.
I decided one day that I looked cute enough to post a selfie online and I did, yes there is a filter over it to hide my scars but I am still proud of myself that I posted a clean face picture. The next time I felt cute I added a filter but not one to hid my scars just a silly one hoping it would distract people from my fresh face.
I am not fully there in loving myself without makeup but I became aware on how much control makeup had on me and I am trying to change that. I hope this opened your eyes and you are thinking about how big a part makeup is in your life. Maybe one day you will post a fresh face picture and feel amazing
This website is so simple and so beautiful. I could spend all day on it looking at all the different designs that they had. I have wayyyyy toooo many notebooks so I got a day planner for my blog and for my new internship with HerCampus SCAD. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted but this is the final result:
The cover feels durable which is a good thing because I know that I can throw it in my purse or back pack and not worry about it. The paper feels so nice and I really do not want to write in it because it is so beautiful. The design on the cover looks exactly like it did on the website and it is beautiful.

Giveaway ends September 8th and you will be emailed if you win
This is was most unique site that I have ever been on!! At first I was overwhelmed by the options but I looked through every single scent and bookmarked a few for later. (I will share those at the end of the post). The scents are not too pricey and the website was easy to figure out and after a few short emails I learned that the customer service was amazing!! I was beyond impressed.
The two scents that I picked out were Jack and Kyoto but I wish I could get every single one they all sound amazing
OH MY GOODNESS!! I think I found my new favorite perfume! I read the reviews online and I was so excited when the bottle came in. One whiff of it and I was in love. To me this scent smells like pumpkin short bread cookies or just the scent of Halloween. It is not a year round scent but I can tell you when fall comes around and I start to miss home this scent will be floating around my dorm room. It is a sweet scent but is not strong throughout the day. I highly recommend Jack for the fall months.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is my new favorite place to get perfumes!! If you would like to see what is on my wish list and to buy list here they are:
Since I was looking for something that smelled like home I got inspired and thought of what scents I would use if I made a perfume that smelled like Okinawa, there would have to be a sea foam smell in there but not too much, then there would be a fresh scent like fresh cut grass or daisies, with a hint of tobacco hiding among the freshness. It probably would not smell good to wear but it got me thinking.
What scents would you use to describe your home?
