Jennifers Fantastic Finds

Great Products to Try and Love!
I thought i'd give you guys a fun post with some good information so I decided to give you guys some info on some great products that I like to use and would advocate you to try yourselves. I kept the list short... Beeceuticals Organics, FoodTees, and Hemp Products:

Beeceuticals Organics!

Burt's Bees is under fire from the public due to their buy out by Clorox, a company that is known to be avid animal testers. As someone who is opposed to this sort of testing I have stopped using Burt's Bees Products. However, I do miss my chapstick and balms...a LOT. But now i've found a valid alternative...BeeCeuticals Organics! Check out this information from their website:

The origins of the BeeCeuticals Organics® line of body care stems from wound-care doctors who sought natural solutions for skin problems that were unresponsive to conventional medicine. When specialists began working with unique forms of honey that began improving wounds and burns they also noticed that many of the formulations not only began to facilitate wounded and damaged skin, but helped healthy skin look even better by reviving, replenishing and promoting new cell growth.

BeeCeuticals Organics™ is dedicated to providing a range of products that enhance the health and well-being of our customers, community and the planet. Our products are based upon science, technology and the traditional therapeutical uses of bee products. We actively support research into solutions for the environmental challenges facing the global bee populations as well as programs to improve and eliminate these challenges. Our products are formulated for maximum efficacy from the highest quality, purest ingredients.

We select only the highest quality ingredients to include in our products. We use certified organic botanicals, extracts, oils and butters. Each of our products contains our healing Organic Holistic Honey Blend™. We never use sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate, parabens or synthetic fragrances

PS this product is available at Harmony Farms on Creedmoor Road or online

Check out some of the many reasons to try out hemp in one of many fantastic forms...

  • Hemp seeds are drug-free and extremely nutritious. They can be eaten whole, pressed into edible oil like soybeans, or ground into flour for baking. They are one of the best sources of vegetable protein. They contain a full complement of essential amino acids, essential fatty-acids (EFA'S), and have been shown to lower blood cholesterol and dissolve plaque in coronary arteries.

  • Hemp seed oil is perfectly suited for hair and skin care. Its nutritional value, combined with its moisturizing and replenishing EFA's, make it one of the best vegetable body care foundations. Hemp seed oil's EFA complement includes polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega-3, omega-6, omega-9, linoleic acid, and gamma linoleic acids (GLA's). Although they are very effective in skin care maintenance, GLA's are rarely found in natural oils. Hemp is an excellent source of GLA's.

  • Hemp paper is naturally acid-free. The oldest printed paper in existence is a 100 percent hemp Chinese text dated to 770 AD. Thomas Jefferson drafted both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution on hemp paper.
    Hemp's cellulose level is almost three times that of wood, so it makes superior paper and yields four times as much pulp per acre as trees. The hemp paper process also utilizes less energy and fewer chemicals than tree paper processing and doesn't create the harmful dioxins, chloroform, or any of the other 2,000 chlorinated organic compounds that have been identified as byproducts of the wood paper process.

  • Hemp oil extract can also be used as an ingredient in nontoxic, biodegradable inks, paints, and varnishes. It is an ideal raw material for plant-based plastics such as cellophane as well as more recently developed cellulose-based plastics.

Check out fantastic hemp products online or in your local health food store. The options are multitudinous!
