It has really been a while since I ordered something from iHerb, it’s just that I’ve had some issues. I wouldn’t blame iHerb, they’ve been really sweet and refunded me for my lost package (including shipping and rewards) even though they shouldn’t have to! The issue has been DHL (which has yet, months after, not answered my letter!). I ordered a package late October that never got delivered. Of course I had taken the cheaper shipping charge without any tracking or refund for that matter. At the same time I had read about another blogger getting her package but with three items missing and one destroyed. I’d actually like that much better than get my package missing and my money used for nothing. My conclusions are that DHL got it so destroyed to the point they couldn’t deliver or it got stolen. Because there’s at least records of it leaving iHerb to the hands of DHL.
I just think it’s sad that delivering companies can’t even at least admit and send apologies.
This whole took very long, because you have to wait 6 weeks before you can contact about a missing package, then the holidays came, and so on and so on.
But now I’ve reordered, this time with express shipping for 8$ just to be sure. Unfortunately I had to pay customs this time, which I’ve never had to do before when using the cheaper shipping even though I ordered under 300kr. I don’t know how I will do in the future, ’cause I don’t think iHerb will be as nice to me for a second lost package… and I really don’t like to lose money! But anyway, after months of waiting I finally got me some iHerb stuff!
I made some changes when I reordered, but it may be fun to know what would have originally arrived:
- Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Powder
- Wisdom Natural SweetLeaf Stevia Concentrate
- Eden Foods Organic Dulse Flakes
- Great Eastern Sun Wakame
- Indigo Wild ZumBar Goats Milk Soap Patchouli & Orange
I managed to buy some raw cacao powder else where. And then I swapped the natural Stevia for three flavors because it was a bit cheaper. I didn’t get the wakame because I just changed my mind about them. The ZumBar I got really upset that most of the good scents where sold out when I wanted to order. I found a cheaper one though (Alaffia Shea & Rooibos Antioxidant Goat’s Milk Soap), which seemed with even better ingredients, but because I wanted to stay below 300kr I had to set it aside.
I’m starting to look into natural tooth care. Not that I feel that my teeth are starting to rotten from all the fruits I eat haha, but I’ve always felt that the tooth is a living thing that can repair itself. I hate doctors and dentists and hope to never need to go to one. Even if there is a need for things like pediatric dentistry in the world, I’m just not personally fond of the experience. However, if you have a family you will need to take your kids in to see the dentist on a regular basis as their teeth are continuously growing and need to be professionally cared for. Families can visit Foothills Family Dentistry or one that is closer to their area, so they are keeping on top of their children’s dental health. I am also planning on making a “natural tooth care”-post, so stay tuned!
This toothpaste isn’t really what I was ideally after because it still contains glycerin. I’m not fond of Fennel flavor, but this was the only Foam-Free so to speak, and I want it to be as natural as possible. Other than that it seems to contain everything I look for in a natural toothpaste.
I was thinking about buying EarthPaste, but to me it didn’t have the oils and extracts that are good for overall gum and teeth health.
I got a sample of Vanilla Creme just like these from HälsoKraft which lasted me – what felt like – ages. I didn’t like it at first, I could really taste the bitterness in it, but the more I used it the more I got used to it. I still would want the natural taste bottle, but it’s fun testing out other flavors too.
One thing I knew I had to reorder was the Dulse Flakes. Kimberly Snyder talks about them a lot, to throw into salads for when you want some salty taste. They smell and looks exactly like fish food but does definitely give that salty taste I’m after. I will probably use this quite frequently!
According to Kimberly, using Dulse is like adding pure hair mineralizer! Contains vitamins B6, B12, E and A, and is rich in iron, but also contains beauty minerals like: zinc, calcium, potassium and magnesium as well as iodine.
Cool thing to add into your daily diet in other words!
Okay, I’m crazy about oils and you should see my growing oil collection!
Tamanu oil I’ve been eyeing on ever since PinksoFoxy introduced me to it in one of her videos. Somehow it got lost in the thoughts, just like Neem Oil, but now I’m finally trying it out!
Tamanu oil works a lot like Neem, it’s good for people who battles with skin issues, but doesn’t smell as bad.
Right now my skin is really seeing better days and I’m trying everything on earth to lighten and repair those nasty scars and red marks it has left me.
Having good teeth often times starts with a healthy tongue!
I first looked at my local drugstores but all they were selling was plastic one-size, and for some reason plastic doesn’t seem right. Dr Tung’s were the most recommended one, so I bought two, one for me and one for Peter.
I really like these, they are adjustable and made of steel, will probably last me years. I’ve just started with some oil pulling, but to do it right you should scrape your tongue afterwards, and now I can do that.
