The Only Thing You’ll Ever Need To Put On A Pimple EVER Again!

By RaddestMom

SOUND THE ALARM. I’ve cracked the code! For the last 6 months, my hormones have been koo-koo & all over the place. I was getting really bad breakouts on my chin. I tried at least 5 different spot treatments & unfortunately wasted a lot of money. It wasn’t until I was reading in my “Modern Essentials” book that I realized Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree Oil, can be used as a zit antiseptic. “I’ve used it for just about everything else, so why not slather it all over my face?” I thought.

I’ve had recent facials that used masks “containing tea-tree”, but it didn’t seem to help. I think the best way to get quick results is to use pure, clean, highly concentrated oil.You only need to use a little bit as a spot treatment. It has been 2 weeks and I am completely zit-less in what was my most congested area. I’m not kidding, people. I put the stuff on my chin, went to bed WITH chin acne, and woke up with brand new skin and not a trace of even a blemish. It was fantastic magic. I have been applying it to my chin once a week ever since to prevent future breakouts, and so far, so good. Melaleuca is highly anti bacterial and goes deep into the skin if you’re using a very pure concentration. I highly recommend DoTerra Essential Oils, only because they are the best. If you really wanna get crazy & turn back the hands of time on your face, mix a drop of their pure Frankincense oil into your nightly moisturizer.

Best Kid’s Lunchbox EVER!

By RaddestMom

Tired of losing lids to tupperware and having to pack a bunch of different containers for your kids’ lunches? Look no further….PlanetBox is a game changer. A friend of mine recommended these and I am extremely happy with the purchase. They are stainless steel lunch boxes that look a bit like prison trays, but they come with a cute little carrying bag. A bit pricey at between $40-$60 for varying styles, but hear me out on why it’s worth it. For one, you don’t have to buy ANY other containers because this can hold everything. Two, the lid is attached, so you won’t ever lose it. Three, there is no BPA leaching in stainless steel like the plastic containers do. It doesn’t stain if you put spaghetti in it, and you can literally use it for years. It comes with a cup holder and condiment pouch. As a mom, I’m thrilled about it. Added bonus is how aesthetically pleasing and organized your kids’ lunches look. Being as OCD as I am, well, it really tickles my fancy. Get one HERE at their website or you can also order on Amazon.
