Monkey Balm Review and Giveaway

Hmmm...as I sit here and write this post I am trying to remember if I have ever mentioned my son's skin condition yet. My middle son has a condition called X-linked Ichthyosis as a mom this is a very frustrating thing. Sometimes the itching and pain is unbelieveable and without some kind of constant moisture. Recently I was able to review a product called Monkey Balm. Monkey Balm is 100% all natural and uses the ingredient Sea Buckthorn to help promote relief. Sea Buckthorns have been found to have many health benefits including:
  • Reducing of inflammation
  • Soothing of discomfort from numerous skin conditions
  • Helping to heal wounds and burns
  • Promoting healing of acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis
  • Hydration and moisturizing of the skin
  • Improvement of skin tone and texture
  • At first I was a little skipticle about this product. While nothing will take away his condtion I have noticed that he has seemed fare more comfortable. Normally his feet crack until they bleed and he is forced to wear bandages constantly. Since we have started using this product all his open wounds have healed and no more have arisen. Obviously I cannot say that 100% this has been the reason but it is enough for me to continue using this product. I love that he does not come to me crying any more. I can't wait to see how this continues to help him especially as he hits another growth spurt. My favorite part is that it is all natural! This month has been 6 months since we weaned him off of the 7 daily medications he was taking. All natural products have really been a God send for us!
    The makers of Monkey Balm want to share in their joy by offering up a thing of Monkey Balm to one of my great readers. Just make sure to enter on the Rafflecopter below!

    My daughter could use this. She has a rash that comes and goes and the doctor doesn't seem to know what it is and causing it. Right now it's at it's coming stage and not much seems to help.

    Homemade Fly Traps

    We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

    Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

    I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

    Jello Hard Candy

    Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
    2 Cups of Sugar
    2 Cups of Water
    1 Package Sugar Free Jello
    A candy Thermometer

    Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
