Win an Acupressure Mat!

WHAT IS IT: a Heavenly Acupressure Mat that has a total of 8,820 contact points, which stimulate your skin and acupressure points in your body. By laying or standing on the mat, the contact points can help your body to release endorphins and oxytocin, your body’s own pain relieving and feel-good hormones. Ideally, by using the acupressure mat for just 20 minutes each day you can effectively relieve pain, promote relaxation and increase energy levels.

To be more specific, with regular use you may achieve the following benefits:

  • Reduced pain, including backache and tension headaches
  • Decreased muscular tension and stiffness
  • Stress and anxiety relief
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Increased metabolism and mental clarity
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increased energy levels and decreased chronic fatigue
  • Improved sleep, especially stress induced insomnia
  • Deep sense of relaxation

Definitely a great range of possible benefits! To be honest, it’s pretty weird at first… think bed of nails. Or don’t think bed of nails because that probably sounds really painful for good reason. It is far from the feeling of lying on a bed of nails (not that I speak from personal experience), but the general idea is similar. Actually, I found that if you wear anything that is too thick when using the mat then you barely feel the contact points. So I definitely suggest that you opt for very thin clothing or even bare skin.

HOW TO WIN IT:

  1. Be a follower of this blog & leave a comment below
  2. Extra entry for liking the {new facebook page} (please leave a separate comment)
  3. Extra entry for tweeting about this giveaway (also, separate comment)

The giveaway mat is orange (exactly like the one here). You have until 10pm EDT Sunday, May 1st to enter. The winner will be announced on Monday, May 2nd. Good luck!!

Grandma’s Cleaning Recipes
By Dr. Myron Wentz and Dave Wentz, with Emily Alaniz

Next time you clean house, try one of these natural cleaning recipes:

Window Cleaner: Add 3 cups of water, plus ¼ cup of white vinegar and 1½ tablespoons of lemon juice. Try wiping this mixture off of windows with crumpled newspaper instead of paper towels to avoid leaving lint on the surface. If the glass appears streaky or has residue on it afterwards, it’s probably buildup left from those synthetic blue window cleaners you’ve been using for years. Try washing with vinegar a few more times and the residue should come right off.

Drain Cleaner: Pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by half a cup of white vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then pour a pot of boiling water down the drain to flush out any remaining clogs caused by food particles, soap, and grease.

Stainless Steel Polisher: Use baking soda and a soft-sided sponge. Toothpaste works, too.

Carpet Stain Remover: Baking soda combined with water or club soda.

Heavy-duty Cleaning (for large jobs): Add 1 teaspoon baking soda and 2 teaspoons liquid soap to 1 gallon of hot water. If it’s a particularly stubborn project, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of borax.

Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Flush the toilet to remove as much water as possible, then pour 1 cup vinegar around the inside of the rim and scrub to remove buildup. Repeat if needed.

Refrigerator Cleaner and Deodorizer: Mix a few teaspoons of salt with two cups of soda water to clean your fridge without getting synthetic chemicals close to your food.

If you need a little extra incentive, just look at the price tag. These natural cleaners are a fraction of the price of those brightly colored products you’re used to. And in the long run, your body will thank you.

Crispy Green Giveaway!

Crispy Green’s freeze-dried fruit snacks are shockingly delicious. I say “shockingly” because  when I saw “freeze-dried” I didn’t expect such delicious flavor…flavor SO similar to the actual piece of fruit! After trying several of the varieties (all tasty), the mango is definitely my favorite. The full choice of flavors include: Fuji Apple, Asian Pear, Banana, Mango, Peach, and Pineapple.

Wondering how they’re made? The water is simply removed from the fresh fruit in cold (freezing) vacuum conditions, leaving behind the essence of the fruit in the form of light and crispy goodness. So that’s it – the water is taken away, but nothing is added. Take the Crispy Apples for example — Ingredients: Fuji Apples. That’s it. One ingredient – the fruit – and nothing else! They’re a fun snack and especially great for when you want something sweet yet healthy. Added bonus – they won’t rot or bruise when storing/transporting :)

Would you like to try out all of the delicious flavors, including some of the FruitziO line (fruit + a touch of cane sugar)?
