I had the opportunity recently to try a selection of products from Ora's Amazing Herbal and want to tell you about these handcrafted goodies that are, just like the name says.....amazing!!
Ora's Amazing Herbal is a family owned business that came about when the owner wanted to find a more holistic & natural approach to her daughter's eczema after her physician suggested steroids & antibiotics. She headed to her herbal medicine cabinet and started her research....and the herbal salve was developed that she began giving as gifts to friends, family and teachers --- who then wanted to buy more....and more....and, just like that, a business was born!
I tried two of their eight flavors of beeswax based Lip Balms in Earl Grey and Chai Spice. These balms went on smoothly and didn't pull at my lip like others I've tried. They each had a very unique scent & taste to them and I liked that they were unlike the "usual" flavors you'd find in a store. These balms are paraben free, gluten free, and are not tested on animals! (Yay!!) These sell for $3.99 each or you can buy a three pack sampler of Basil Rosemary, Vanilla, and Minty Cocoa for just $10.99!! That's a great deal for lip balms slow infused with "herbs and love"!!
Ora's All Purpose Salve is perfectly scented with rosemary, thyme, tea tree, and thuja (which is cedar leaf) and is useful for anything from softening your cuticles to moisturizing dry cracked skin...it even acts as a first aid ointment for scrapes, mild burns & bug bites. I love that it's non-greasy, fast absorbing, and really comforting. I loved using it on my elbows as a moisturizer. You can also use this on tattoos, although they also sell an herbal salve especially for tattoos which I thought was pretty cool! The All Purpose Salve sells for $8.99-$18.99, depending on the size!
Lastly, I tried their All Natural Body Powder in both Vanilla and Blissful Earth. I have to tell you, I am in love with their Blissful Earth Body Powder and will be purchasing this in the future! It has such a wonderful scent...it captures all the wonderful scents of a walk through the woods...and you can really pick out all the layers of fragrance...from the lavender to the clary sage. I think this powder would be great for both men & women - and the scent lasts for a very long time which I thought was great. The Vanilla powder is very subdued & mellow in fragrance, but is just as cooling & soothing as the Blissful Earth without such a pronounced scent. These powders are kaolin clay based, so they're talc free, grain free, and gluten free. In fact, they're free of synthetic ingredients all together! These powders sell for $10.99 (2.5oz) and an unscented version is also available!
Aside from the above mentioned products, Ora's Amazing Herbal also offers a number of gift boxes with an assortment of products sure to put a smile on anybody's face!
These products were all packaged very well and I think they're very reasonably priced considering you are getting all natural, organic, and fair trade ingredients in products made by an ethical eco-friendly company who cares about the environment and the people, plants & animals that inhabit it.
You can order Ora's online or check to see if there's a store near you that carries their line! You can also connect with them socially on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to be the first to find out about any specials and new products!
