MORINGA TO THE RESCUE!!

 

MORINGA:

  • ✔BENEFIT FROM NATURE’S FINEST MULTIVITAMIN. Packed with over 90 essential ingredients including 20+ types of amino acids, 40+ antioxidants, 35+ anti-inflammatory compounds, key vitamins, minerals, protein, Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils and phytonutrients. Few foods can match the nutrition provided by Moringa.
  • ✔ENJOY THE GREENEST, FRESHEST RAW LEAVES, NEVER FREEZE-DRIED. Our Moringa Oleifera has been carefully sun- and shade-dried at the ideal low temperature to preserve its precious nutrients and quickly packaged to maintain freshness. Other sellers use industrial machines to freeze dry or heat dry their Moringa. The sun is better! You can see the results in the bright green colors and rich, earthy scent of our Moringa.
  • ✔WE SUSTAINABLY SOURCE ONLY FROM SMALL ORGANIC FARMS in the Himalayan foothills where Moringa originates. Other sellers run huge industrial-sized operations which produce lower quality leaves. Always ask how your Moringa is grown! Hundreds of 5 star reviews from happy Amazon customers attest to the quality and purity in every bag we sell.
  • ✔MADE IN THE USA IN AN FDA-REGISTERED AND ORGANIC-CERTIFIED FACILITY. Always ask where your Moringa is made! Other sellers package in countries without the same safeguards found here. Our Moringa is made in small batches, following strict health and safety guidelines. It’s then rigorously tested to ensure purity and quality and delivered quickly to maintain peak freshness.

SAFETY WARNING: While Moringa is safe and effective for most people to take, you should always consult with a doctor before starting any new exercise or nutrition plan and should immediately stop using if you feel any ill effects. In addition, Moringa is a mild laxative, so you should start with 1 capsule per day to see how your body reacts. Over time, you can increase the dosage, if you have no issues with it.

Moringa is a great addition to your daily green drink or smoothie–just add a few teaspoons to your favorite recipe and enjoy! Moringa powder can also be sprinkled on top of many dishes just before they are served (Moringa shouldn’t be cooked or it loses its strength). These include meats, stews, soups, and salads. However you enjoy it, make Moringa a part of your daily health regime!

Ingredients: 100% Pure Certified Organic Moringa Leaf Powder.

Save Time & Money With e-cloth!

You can’t get anymore sustainable, organic or green than these e-cloths!

I just received my e-Cloth Home Cleaning Set in the mail last week. The set comes with 8 pieces:

  • Kitchen cloth
  • Stainless Steel Cloth
  • Range & Stove-top Cloth
  • Bathroom Cloth
  • Window Cloth
  • 2-Glass & Polishing Cloths
  • Dusting Cloth

I have only used them a couple of times so far and I can already say, I LOVE THEM!! They have saved me time & money because there is no need for cleaning products. They work with just hot water, which means I don’t have to spend a fortune on harmful, chemical laden, products & I don’t have to carry around bunch of cleaning products to clean the house.

Every morning after my husband & I are done washing our face and brushing our teeth, I wipe down the bathroom sink. I have always just used a regular cloth and then once a week I would give the whole bathroom a thorough cleaning. Now, with e-cloth, when I wipe down the bathroom sink, IT’S CLEAN!! No having to go back and clean it again 😀 I wipe down my glass shower doors using the Window Cloth along with the Glass & Polishing Cloth at the end of the day, after the last shower has been taken, to keep them looking clean & clear. While the Bathroom Cloth keeps the shower walls squeaky clean.

It’s the same with my kitchen counters. Everyday I wipe down my kitchen counter at least 3-4 times. Then at night after washing our dinner dishes I would spray the counters down and give them a more thorough cleaning. Now, I don’t have to do that, using the Kitchen Cloth, my counters stay clean all the time, it’s a miracle!! The Range & Stove-top Cloth along with the Glass & Polishing Cloth has kept my stove-top looking shiny & and practically brand new.

Because I only need to wipe down the surface of my furniture, without have to drag out a bunch of cleaning products, it’s much easier to keep the dirt and grime from building up. I use the Dusting Cloth to give my furniture a quick swipe and I’m done and can move on with my day, making time for other, more important, FUN things!

I highly recommend getting a set of e-cloths. They really do save time & money and even though I have only used them a short time, I can already tell the difference. If you are skeptical like I was, I have added links below so you can read about the science behind these cloths and how they have such remarkable cleaning capabilities, removing 99% of the bacteria in your home!! WHAT?!

e-cloths have 3.1 million fibers per sq in. 480,000 fibers per cubic centimeter. By combining this unique fiber technology with water, the cloths break up, lift and hold grease, grime and bacteria, which normal cloths leave behind.

paperlesskitchen

Caring for your e-cloth is as simple as rinsing it with hot water in your day-to-day use. To ensure your e-cloths perform at their best you can machine wash them up to 300 times!! You only need a small amount of detergent, then either hang or tumble dry. That’s it!! I use Soap Nuts by NaturOli, you can read about them here.

Why choose e-cloth?

Research undertaken by Siliker (a leading scientific research organization, with 45 laboratories worldwide) has proven that e-cloths remove over 99% of bacteria. Get full details here.

Thanks for dropping by!!

With Love,

Holy Community Gardening

We love the idea of community gardening! A few months ago, Hoss had the opportunity to donate one of our Wheel Hoes to the Community of Jesus – an ecumenical Christian community made up of monastic Brothers & Sisters, along with married couples, families and single adults located in Orleans, Massachusetts.  This community of 230 members, strong in their commitment to their faith and way of life, are also master gardeners!

Brother Andrew Smith is, as we have come to know, the chief gardener of the community gardening.  He oversees three main gardens plus two potato patches – in all, the Community has about 2/3 of an acre under cultivation.  We felt the members of this Community would greatly benefit from one of our Wheel Hoes – not only to take the strain out of gardening but to help the members really enjoy planting and harvesting their vegetables and fruits and get the most out of their crops.

At Hoss Tools, we are huge fans of sustainable gardening, and the Community of Jesus does an incredible job.  Oh, and we have to mention the fact that the Community also has cows, chickens and goats!  A true working farm with both plants and animals  – coming together to provide for community members.

Apartment Composting

When I was growing up, my family compost pile was a mound of stinking black earth decorated with vegetable peelings, nutshells, and denuded, forgotten apple cores. Teeming with worms and other wriggling digesters, the pile took six months or more to transform our jettisoned detritus into the fragrant loam my mother would later scatter at the base of her peonies.

The pile was not something that could ever work in an apartment.

But not all composts are created equally, and if you have ever rejected composting because of a less-than-spacious abode, think again. Today’s composters are streamlined and odor-free, offering options to accommodate even the smallest of apartments. Is it time for you to get on the composting bandwagon?

The Benefits of Composting

While you may not have peonies demanding a steady diet of nutrient-rich fertilizer, composting has other benefits. Not only can apartment dwellers use that black gold to feed house plants and patio containers, you can also reduce household waste and save yourself a trip to the dumpster.

Food scraps
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, food is the biggest ingredient in American trash. Currently more than 35% of the average garbage can is filled with kitchen scraps—scraps that could be diverted from the landfill altogether.

And diverting those scraps is important. When tossed into landfills, organic waste generates methane gas, something that doesn’t happen when you compost. Methane is a harmful greenhouse gas that increases the rate of global climate change. In fact, municipalities like Seattle, San Franciso, and New York City operate curbside collection and composting programs and get a carbon credit for their efforts. Despite this, about 95% of food scraps in the US are still thrown away.

To help reduce emissions and divert your share of organic waste, apartment composting is the answer. Luckily, there are several great ways to compost in an apartment. The type you choose will depend on your situation.

Superior Cannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil

What is Hemp oil?

Superior is the result of a collaborative effort to develop a novel, 10x bio-availability optimized hemp oil extract using exclusively natural, plant-based ingredients in a complete botanical formulation.

Balance In A Bottle

Our Superior formula:

  • Balances the Nervous System
  • Balances the Musculo-Skeletal System
  • Promotes Mental Clarity, Focus & Memory
  • Supports Calm & Relaxation
  • Supports Healthy Immune & Stress Response
  • Supports Healthy Inflammatory Response
  • Provides Anti-Oxidant Support
  • Supports Healthy Energy & Stamina

HoneyColony Superior CBD Hemp Oil

Cannabidiol is extracted from the hemp plant and has no euphoric properties whatsoever. This formulation offers all the health benefits of hemp oil without the feeling of being “high.”

Superior hemp oil nourishes the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. A decrease in the functioning of the ECS can lead to chemical imbalances throughout the whole body. Our hemp oil acts on the ECS to increase its function and promote total body health.

In addition to faster absorption, our special formulation synergizes hemp oil with other medicinal herbs used in ancient medicine. This is a potent concentration inside of a small travel size bottle.

No other product in the marketplace uses this finely extracted, optimized cannabinoid matrix, using production that meet high end specifications, using only natural ingredients in its processing. Integrity is key.

Key Ingredients & Why Superior Hemp Oil Works:

Western medicine likes to synthesize and compartmentalize compounds. But the phyto-nutrients contained in whole plants are complex and complete. While identifying active principles is a useful research tool, evidence supports the superior therapeutic value of the naturally-occurring synergistic chemistry of the whole plant. In other words, whole plants or mixtures of plants are more effecteive than than isolated compounds. It’s about treating your health as a whole.

With the assistance of HERBOLOGIE’s master formulator and a veritable  alchemical magician,  we have actively mixed, tested, and finally formulating a recipe that looks to traditional medicine such as the ancient Chinese and the bees  Superior Hemp Oil‘s profile aims to enhance, regulate and support a long healthy life.

Sustainable Organic World: Soap Nuts

Hand-Sort Select Soap Nuts

Sun-dried, De-seeded Soap Berries

USDA Certified Organic

I had never heard of soap nuts before, also known as soap berries, until I saw them on Pinterest. I was intrigued because I am always looking for green, organic, sustainable products to use in my home. So I found them on Amazon by a company called “NaturOli” and decided to try them out.

bag

Before I tell you how they worked, let me give you a little soap nut background. Soap Nuts (Soap Berries) are a gift from Mother Nature, a sustainable, natural resource that grows wild from the sapindus trees. The fruit is picked & dried and it’s the dried fruit that produces the “soap” (saponin). Making it the ultimate 100% natural laundry detergent and cleanser!

nuts

Now let me tell you how they worked. They come with a little pouch that you put 4 or 5 nuts into. Then, because I use cold water to wash my clothes, they recommended to soak them in hot water before using them. So, while I gathered up my clothes I soaked them. It only took a few minutes and they were ready to use.

pouch

I poured the soap nut pouch in along with the soaking water, then, added in my clothes and let ‘er rip. That’s it, nothing else was added, when they were finished, I put everything in the dryer, including the pouch. They came out fresh & cleaned!! I used my initial 4 berries for 7 washes before I had to change them out 😀

I should say at this point that my laundry isn’t very soiled. I don’t do construction, lawn maintenance or anything that would be considered “dirty” work. I do, however, work in the garden and perspire. They are effective in removing soil and odors while leaving my clothes feeling soft. I even used them to wash my sheets & towels. The towels are very soft, while still being absorbent. Bathroom towels that aren’t absorbent is something I used to dislike about synthetic fabric softener.

The soap nuts were so gentle, they are superb for delicate fabrics. If you have allergies or are sensitive to commercial chemicals & fragrances and want to do your part to help create a sustainable, organic world, then soap nuts are the answer!

  • Hypoallergenic, fragrance free, Eco-friendly and biodegradalbe
  • Low sudsing – perfect for high efficiency (he) washers
  • Free of synthetic chemicals, fillers, toxins, dyes and perfumes
  • Ideal for cloth cotton diaper landering
  • Imported only from Fair Trade, Co-op suppliers
  • NaturOli Soap Nuts are cleaned, sorted & packaged in the USA

NaturOli Soap nuts are the highest grade quality. Only premium soap berries are harvested at the their optimal time to ensure maximum saponin content. They are then de-seeded by hand.

Along with my NaturOli Soap Nut purchase I was given a sample of “Extreme 18X” concentrate soap. I use it in my mop water to mop my tile floor and it works perfectly!! But, there are a plethora of green, cleaning uses – both household and personal care. Inherently healthy and nourishing properties will leave skin conditioned too. You can throw away those rubber gloves! Experiment and adjust amounts used depending upon your desired results.

If You Don’t Have One of These, You Don’t Know What Your Missing!!

Back in October of 2016 I went on a trip to Costa Rica and stayed with a friend of mine. We got to talking about kitchen appliances and she told me about the programmable pressure cooker she & her daughter used. She told me it would change my life!!

I wasn’t so sure a kitchen appliance could change my life, but I told her I would check into it when I got back home to the states. Well, time came and went and I never really thought that much more about it. Continue reading “If You Don’t Have One of These, You Don’t Know What Your Missing!!”
