WHAT IS CASTILE LIQUID SOAP?

Castile liquid soap is an all-vegetable oil based soap. It is named for Castile, Spain, where it is known for its olive oil. Previously, Castile bar soap was made with olive oil and animal fat. Now, liquid and solid forms of Castile soap are made with vegetable oils including palm, coconut, olive, and hemp.

ABOUT:

Dr. Jacobs was a Swiss chemist that perfected the long-standing Castilian tradition of making Jabon de Castilla or Castile soap before the turn of the 19th century. Today, they still use the same recipes and work to uphold the long-standing tradition of making natural Castile Soap products.

The company Dr. Jacobs was created by Joey and Ezra Aini in the spring 2011. Familiar with cosmetics and skincare from other brands they have launched, they are answering the call of demand from customers for a multi-purpose natural soap product.

My Thoughts:

I prefer to buy as much organic, natural, and/or NON-GMO products for my family to use. The Dr Jacobs Naturals Soap brand fits my lifestyle very well. I simply adore these soaps, because they make my skin, and hair feel clean without stripping away natural oils. Skin and hair feels soft, and well moisturized, and the scent of these soaps are absolutely amazing. I have no need to use a hair conditioner with this castile soap. My curls feel soft and look defined.

A little of this soap goes a long way, making it a good buy for the money. There are so many different ways to use it from body care to household cleaning, laundry, dish soap, and even for washing pets. It works wonders for a horse wash. I’m can’t wait to buy some of the other scents.

Alfa Tactical Rifle Drag Bag ~ review

Disclosure: Sweet Ramblings receives products in order to conduct reviews. No monetary compensation was provided unless noted otherwise. All opinions are 100% my own.

002

This is a great bag for gun enthusiasts, and it’s lightweight, professional and affordable. Bag measures in at 40” L x 6” W x 12.5” H and weighs 4.84 lbs. The exterior is made with 1000D nylon, waterproof polyurethane, and 210D polyester and interior closed cell foam padding. The stitching and zippers on this bag are of great quality. Plenty of space for ammo and other necessities.

Purchase at Amazon

This bag is outstanding for its intended purpose, and I love the option of making it into a gun range backpack or a single handle drag bag. The padding used in the bag is great to protect a rifle. This would make a good bug-out bug for when times get tough. A perfect bag to carry to the range or field. Tough enough to use in any conditions. I couldn’t be happier.

Purest Naturals Hair Detangler Spray ~ review

Disclosure: Sweet Ramblings receives products in order to conduct reviews. No monetary compensation was provided unless noted otherwise. All opinions are 100% my own.

004

This product has so many wonderful benefits and leaves my hair looking and feeling fantastic. Made with ingredients like: Castor & Neem Oils, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and essentials oils. The hair detangler and leave-in conditioner combination makes my hair look so much healthier, it’s moisturized, shiny, soft, silky, and protects my hair from heat styling. Perfect for use with my heat straightening brush, or simply air drying.

Purchase at Amazon

This detangling spray will help quench and separate the toughest tangles. A light leave-in conditioner that doesn’t feel tacky or sticky, and never leaves a heavy feel. I find it helps to prevent breakage and makes my favorite comb glide through my hair with ease. No more ouch! Great for both men and women to use and terrific for those with a sensitive scalp.
No harsh chemicals in this formula. I absolutely love this product!

 

FS Kitchen Pre Seasoned Cast Iron Square Grill Pan ~ review

Cast iron has been my go-to cookware for many years, and if I had to pick one type of pan to have in my kitchen, it would be a couple of cast iron skillets, grill pan, and dutch oven.

I purchased the square, 10.5 inch grill pan from FS Kitchen, and I’m extremely overjoyed with how well it cooks food. This one arrived pre-seasoned and ready to use. It’s easy to clean and store with my other pots and pans. The grill pan is durable, and pretty much indestructible.

Purchase at Amazon

This grill pan is great for multiple uses like: stove-top, grill, oven, or campfire. Terrific for searing meats and the ribbed shape allows fats to drain away from the food. Also, the ribbed shape adds grill marks to foods like polish and smoked sausage.

These types of pans are cheap in price considering they will literally last a lifetime. I have one cast iron skillet that belonged to my grandmother, and it looks and cooks great. There’s not a single piece of kitchen equipment I could recommend more.

My husband surprised me with a new iPhone 7 for my birthday, and it’s so nice, and nice of him. These phones are not cheap, at least not for us, so he suggested buying a case of my liking for it. I was able to choose the NAISU iPhone Card Case. It is only designed for iPhone 7.

048

This is a very well made case, ultra slim in design and made from quality PU leather. The color is very nice, and can be for both male or female use. It has convenient card storage which  allows me to carry my ID or other cards. It’s nice to have the essentials right in hand, especially when out shopping. There are times I don’t want to carry a big bag, just my phone, ID, CC, and keys. This phone case makes it easy to do.

Purchase at Amazon

All ports and side buttons are easily accessible, and the iPhone case is easy to remove. I love the look and feel of it. Very nice and professional look.

This is a nice stand for work or play. It can be used as a laptop stand, for reading books, eating, and for children to do crafts on. I can take the cart from room to room without any hassle. It would be great for elderly or sick people to use for an eating table. The adjustable height makes it perfect to use with a chair, sofa or bed. 3 height levels from 67 to 79CM.

Cedar Shoe Trees ~ Review

I love the scent of cedar, and these shoe trees do the trick of simply holding some form in your shoes, and may help in reducing odor. They are good for maintaining the shape of the shoe, prolong life and reduce moisture. They are made very well, and are extremely durable.

012

Long lasting natural cedar fragrance. Perfect to use in both men and women’s shoes or boots. They come in different sizes, and work perfectly for my shoes. A good choice for narrow, medium and wide widths. The shoe trees length and width may be adjusted. These shoe trees are ideal for all your most expensive footwear.

Order at Amazon

The shoe trees make my closet smell so good.  To rejuvenate scent, brush lightly with fine sandpaper.
