Fabulous Finds Friday

Welcome to FFF, where every Friday I intend to unveil a product I highly recommend. My SIL actually prompted me to do this -- she thinks my entire blog should be devoted to it, as I am the Product Queen. I used to write a beauty column for a local magazine, since folded, but wayyyyyy before that I've been a 'product hound,' so this is second nature to me.

NOTE: I am not getting paid to blog about anything, and have no contact whatsoever with any manufacturers or companies to recommend this stuff -- I heard about the controversy -- so, no fear I am promoting stuff with any self-interest in mind.

There'll be no rhyme or reason to the choices, no particular rating, just stuff I have used forever or new product I have discovered. I try to purge or toss product before it expires, but in the case of this stuff, I'm replacing it before it goes bad. So, these are all things that work great for me, and I hope you give them a try and are pleased to discover they do for you as well.

I am running ragged today, having asked friends over for dinner tonight and needing to get ready -- like clean the house and prep the food and make dessert -- so, although in the future I intend to photograph what I can, today isn't the day to fuss with that, so sorry, no photograph of the first thing I grabbed off the dressing table:

BACH 'Rescue Remedy.' Comes in a cheery little yellow box.
This is a homeopathic natural stress relief -- it contains 27% alcohol, but more importantly it has original flower essences in it, and it tastes lovely. Put a few drops on your tongue and go out and face the day calmer and more grounded. I prefer the liquid, but there is also a spray version I keep in my purse or car for quick spritzing when I feel frazzled or have to do something that makes me a little 'out of my element,' like before a doctor appt., public speaking, or facing a room of people...
It can be found in the organics section of most whole food stores or groceries and places like that.
I've been using it for a decade.

I'd like some product "reviews" actually! I don't buy a lot of products but I'm quite interested. I love things like Make Up Alley which reviews all cosmetic and perfume related products (or its users do!) and I always check it out there before I buy something new. Plus it makes me feel all girlie.

I am still trying to find the perfect red lipstick that works with my colouring. It's hard being me you know.

Stress relief though, we all need that.

You can also put a few drops in your pet's water dish if you have a particularly stressed out dog or cat. No, really... Me, I go right for the hard stuff. I do love me my Xanax.

I've heard about these from some docs here...the 27% alcohol has me a bit concerned as I'm supposed to avoid it, so I am looking into other things.

I stopped by after you left a comment last week. Thanks. I've caught up on all of your postings and must say I really enjoy the writing here.

I used Rescue Oil for a while, until I found out the alcohol content! That sort of shocked me! I was also surprised to find out that some mouth-washes also contain up to 17% alcohol! I didn't want to appear drunk!

That sounds like a good product. I've never heard of it before.

I Wonder Wye said...

I have used it in the cat's water dish and it appeared to work for them. The alcohol content is negligible when you consider the few drops you take so it's not going to have that kind of effect.

Come by Sunday for a little bling for your blog.
