Enter to win a FREE Homemaker's Friend Planner!

Created by a mom of six (Sue Hooley) who wanted a planner that offered a lot of flexibility. I was very impressed with the sample planners Sue sent me and I think many of you will love these, too.

Sue understood that a homemaker’s day can rarely be scheduled and structured the same as the one before, nor can every task fit neatly into the time-slot allotted by other planners. Since her first publication in 2010, thousands of homemakers have benefited from the daily planner.

  • A section to enter specific projects.

48-Hour Giveaway: Moringa Oil and Soap Nuts Liquid (4 Winners)

Green Virgin Products
For a long time, I’ve heard about Soap Nuts — a natural alternative to laundry detergent — but I’d never gotten around to trying them. So I was excited when Green Virgin Products sent me some to try.

What are Soap Nuts?

Soap Nuts actually aren’t nuts at all. They are technically the fruit that grows on the Chinese Soap Berry Tree. These berries are gathered and then dried in the sun to preserve them.

They contain powerful cleaning properties. They are hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin making them great for anyone who is sensitive to chemicals.

How Do You Use Soap Nuts?

If you’ve never used Soap Nuts before, they are really simple to use. Put 3 to 5 whole soap berries in the draw string bag which is included with your purchase. Lightly tie the bag closed and stick it in your washer along with your dirty clothes.

That’s it! They will clean and soften your clothes naturally.


What Are the Benefits to Using Soap Nuts?

Green Virgin Products sent me this list of benefits for using Soap Nuts:

  • Soap Nuts are less than half the cost of regularly-priced Tide.
  • Soap Nuts make clothes extra soft without any fabric softener.
  • Soap Nuts are 100% non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
  • Soap Nuts are a powerful natural detergent.

Do Soap Nuts Really Work?

I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to use Soap Nuts and with how well they worked. I also loved that you can re-use them for multiple loads of laundry. I didn’t notice any difference in how these worked compared to regular laundry detergent. And it was fun to use them, as well!

Don’t Want to Mess With Soap Nuts But Want the Benefits?

Try Soap Nuts Liquid! The liquid is made with USDA Certified Organic Sapindus Mukorossi Soap Nuts. We extract the saponin using only water. They remove all the solids and tannins and deodorize it. This is all done using high tech filters using no chemicals only water.

The liquid is much easier to use than traditional soap nuts. No more wash bags to look for in your washer and you don’t have to remember how many loads you have done so far.

The Soap Nuts Liquid is also proven to work more effectively. In testing done by an independent lab, (Exova) this product out cleaned the raw nuts by a large margin. The liquid is a little more expensive than raw nuts, but it is still less expensive than Tide and other chemical detergents.

Green Virgin Products is also giving away bottles of Moringa Oil to 4 winners. Here’s more about this oil from their site:

Moringa oil, also known as Ben oil has been used for thousands of years because of its anti-aging properties. Most oils will only have about a one-year shelf life. Moringa oil is the only oil in the world that will never go rancid.

This oil is completely absorbed into the skin and leaves your skin soft, and healthy. It is also prized by massage therapists for its non-greasy feel and is known as the best massage oil in the world. It’s great for your hair too, just apply to damp hair and comb in to spread it around. Have an itchy insect bite? Spply a little oil to it and the itching goes away in a few minutes.

Their growers look after your tree throughout the year and harvest and press your olives in autumn. And then they ship your oil direct to your door – no middle men, no messing – just fresh and delicious olive oil.  Yum!

Weekend Giveaway: One Year Subscription to Raw Spice Bar (4 Winners)

raw spice

If you love unique spices and blends, you’ll definitely want to enter this giveaway!

RawSpiceBar is an LA based monthly subscription box that delivers perfectly portioned, freshly ground spices & blends created by top chefs from around the world. They are on a mission to eliminate the waste of pre-ground spice jars that many of us all have had sitting in our kitchen cupboards or on our kitchen countertops for too long.

raw spice1Here are some highlights about the Raw Spice Bar company:

  1. Freshly ground: ­Their spices are whole toasted, ground and blended just a few days before they ship directly to your door so you can have your spices the way you have your coffee (fresh!).
  2. Perfectly sized: ­Each of their spice blends are perfectly portioned to create a dish serving 8-12. Their recipes are kitchen tested and loved — and almost always will include an option for vegans, carnivores, and vegetarians.
  3. Discover new spices:­ Their blends are from old family recipes or their curated chefs — so you can explore new spice blends from experts all year long.

We got to try a sample pack of Raw Spice Bar spices and loved how they smelled, how fresh they were, and how unique and different they were. They send recipes to use each of the blends in.

I love the concept of this, but I have to say that it’s probably not a great fit for our family since you don’t know what you are getting and some of the recipes weren’t really things we would normally eat, and at least one I knew would be something we wouldn’t like.

However, if you are adventuresome and you love trying new flavors and new recipes, this is definitely worth checking out. Plus, it would also make a great gift idea for a foodie in your life.

If you sign up for a subscription, be sure to use coupon code MOM2015 for a free monthly spice box with a purchase of 6 or 12 month subscription.

Would you like to win a FREE one-year subscription to Raw Spice Bar? Just click on the graphic below and type in your name and address to enter to win. Four winners will be chosen and posted next week. This giveaway ends Monday, June 1, at 11:59 pm, CST.
