Electric Pepper Grinder by Ozeri


Details: Ozeri's Artesio Electric Grinder is the ultimate accompaniment to any dining setting where a touch of fresh pepper, salt or other spices goes a long way. The Artesio has an adjustable ceramic grinding mechanism that provides from coarse to a fine ground pepper. It has a battery powered engine for a push-button easy dispensing of pepper. It has a non-slip grip which is ultra soft. It also has a built-in light for low-lit dining ambiances. It runs on 4 AA batteries not included.





It is advisable not to use sea, stone or rock salt with this device.  It may result in a jam.  When adjusting the grain, make gradual adjustments, stopping to test the grain.  Avoid over-tightening as this may jam the device.  If such happens, then loosen the grain adjustor and attempt to shake loose the peppercorn.  Be careful not to overfill the chamber.

My Review:  The Artesio Electric Grinder from Ozeri has been a fun kitchen tool that is cool to have on the dining table.  I like the light that comes on when grinding the peppercorns.  It operates very smooth, and can be done with just one hand.  Despite having 4 AA batteries to make this work, it is still light enough to operate one handed.

I also tried Whole Allspice.  It worked great.  You can see the various coarsness/fineness of the ground Allspice.  The adjustable ceramic grinding mechansism is slick to operate.  One hardly has to move the mechansim and it changes.  





The only complaint is when I fill up the chamber, the top piece always fell over.  I had hoped it would stay standing up.  Not a big deal, I was just surprised more than once when I stood up the top piece and it toppled over while filling the chamber.  The pieces snap into place without any issues and your up and ready to start grinding.

The Artesio Electric Grinder will make a perfect gift for Christmas.  Be sure to order today from Amazon so it will arrive in time for Christmas.

Pros:  Can use 1 handed.  Grinds real fine to very coarse.  Grinds Pepper, Salt and Spices.  Like the light that comes on when grinding.

Cons:  The 4 AA batteries are not included.  The top doesn't stand up when filling up chamber.  

My Rating:  Thumbs Up!

Review:  I have this lotion fettish.  I love to try the newest and latest lotions.  Of all the one's I've tried recently, this has got to me my favorite for many reasons.  First of all this lotion, despite all the oils and butters that are in it, is Not oily or greasy.  Second of all, a little goes a long ways.  I only squirt a little onto my hands and it covers my face and neck just fine.  Third, it absorbs quickly.  While I'm massaging it into my face and neck it feels like it is going to work instantly.  Fourth, my face and neck feel very hydrated after application.  It doesn't not interfere with my foundation, and my face looks and feels smoother.  (Read-reduced fine lines and wrinkles.)

I love all of  the above and that it is fragrance free.  This is a wonderful product. This is my new favorite!

The container is designed to help keep air from getting to the facial moisturizer and free from contaminants.  I also love the butterflies on the container.

Below are some helpful tips from Oleavine:

How To Use:

a. To prime the airless pump and extend the pump head, twist the silver cap counterclockwise until you hear a click. This locks the airless pump head in place and ready for use.

b. When storing or traveling with your moisturizer, turn the silver cap in the opposite direction to hide the pump head in the silver cap.

c. Apply to clean skin on face, neck, and décolleté day or night. Can be used under makeup.

d. Although our formula was designed to be deeply penetrating, for improved absorption apply after gently exfoliating to ensure no dead skin cells are preventing optimum absorption. We recommend the highly popular Oleavine Facial Konjac Sponge for exfoliation.


Coupon:  Oleavine is offering a 40% off Coupon from Amazon.  This is an amazing discount.  Sale ends at Midnight PST on Friday.  Limit one redemption per person.  Go to Amazon, and Use this code:  PK6CCAHH.

Pros:  So soft and silky, not oily in the least.  Great hydration that lasts all day long and helps those fine lines disappear quickly and stay away.

Cons:  None.

Edens Garden Essential Oils Neroli and Ylang Ylang

Details:  Edens Garden offers 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils.  There are no peticides, synthetic chemicals, herbicides, gmos, harmful chemicals or natural fertilizers ever used during any stage of the growing or distillation process.  Edens Garden Oils come from plants grown in their indigenous locations (where they grow naturally).  Their trusted suppliers strictly follow all USDA food/product safety guidelines.  They never add any bases, carriers or additives to their essential oils.


They to GC (gas chromatography) tests on each of their oils and MSDS and Certificates of Analysis are available upon request.  This provies the breakdown of the naturally occurring components found in any given oil.

My Review: Being very new to essential oils, I've been introduced to several companies recently. There are many great companies out there.  I've actually tried and purchased essential oils from many of them and have been quite impressed.

I recently purchased two oils from Edens Garden, Neroli and Ylang Ylang.  My order arrived very quickly.  It was less than 1 week.  Since this was going from coast to coast, I thought that was impressive.  Shipping and handling charges were less than many other companies I was looking into. Not only that, but the prices of their oils are very reasonably priced.  Basically no MLM, and no middle man so costs are down.


Neroli:  Have you heard of Eau-de-Cologne?  Well it is traditionally made from Neroli Essential Oil. It is made from the bitter orange tree comprising a sweet yet spicey aroma.  Not recommended to take internally.

Neoli promotes cell growth and increases circulation.  It can help prevent scarring and stretch marks.  It is effective in treating skin conditions linked to emotional stress.  Neroli helps to eliminate acne and blemished skin by regulating oiliness and shrinking pores.  With regular use, Neroli will reduce the appearance of fragile or broken capillaries and varicose veins.  When inhaled, it is known to relieve anxiety, stress and depression, reduce high blood pressure and stimulate an underactive libido. It is an aphrodisiac.

Now that I know Neroli helps with varicose veins I'm going to try that and will report back.



Ylang Ylang:  Is made from the flowers of the tree.  Is used to uplift the mood and promote overall health.  It is used to treat high blood pressure, nervous conditions, anxiety and impotence.  It is a powerful aphrodisiac.  It has antidepressant, anti-infectious, antiseptic, euphoric and stimulant properties. It contains stress reducing properties.

Personally, I think Neroli is very strong smelling. Ylang Ylang is more pleasant. I place a few drops of each on separate cotton balls, and place at the head of my bed. They help me relax and sleep well throughout the night. Often times my legs are very restless. When I take in a few deep breaths of each oil, my legs calm down. When I'm stressed out, it's nice to just sit for a few minutes and smell these two oils. I feel much better afterwards. 
 
Pros: No complaints about the company nor their products. Both Neroli and Ylang Ylang help me feel less stressed and help me sleep through the night.

Cons:  Haven't noticed any improvement with libido.

My Rating:  Thumbs UP!!!

True Synergy - Pure and Potent Turmeric Curcumin Extract

Details:  True Synergy offers a Pure and Potent Turmeric Curcumin Extract.  It comes in capsule form.  Turmeric has powerful antioxidant effects.  It neutralizes free radicals on its own, then stimulates the body's own antioxidant enzymes.

Turmeric supports joint, heart and brain health.  It benefits radiant skin and hair.  It helps relieve pain and inflammation in the body safely and naturally.  Helps those suffering from arthritis.  Helps with Alzheimers.
#turmeric
Review:  Turmeric or Curcumin is one of those items that should be in everyone's medicine cabinet or spice rack.  It controls diabetes, builds and improves the immune system, and digestive system.  It speeds up wound healing.  (Put it directly on cut or wound.)  It's a natural liver detoxifier and a natural pain killer.  Turmeric does so many more wonderful things.

I've purchased Turmeric from grocery stores to sprinkle on my foods during and after cooking.  Love it for making yellow rice, and making my gravies more appetizing and appealing to the eye.  It's a natural yellow coloring.  However, whenever I sprinkle this on my foods after cooking, even though I mix it in real well, I have severe stomach cramps.

Because I know how good turmeric is for our bodies, I've been searching for a capsule form that I can take without any side effects.  True Synergy offers such a product.  They suggest taking 1 capsule a day with a meal.  Let me tell you, I can take this with or without a meal, and take more than 1 a day without any side effects, aka stomach cramps, whatsoever.

I especially like the way it helps my back.  When I have a long day working out in the yard, believe me, 1 capsule is all I need to relieve any back pain I may have encountered.  This is awesome.


My husband likes taking it because he wants to avoid any colds or flus. It has definitely strengthened our immune systems.  We still have a few sneezes and sniffles, but that's it.  And even those have significantly decreased.

We've only been taking these capsules for a couple of weeks, so haven't noticed any other benefits. However, turmeric has been added to our daily routine of healthy eating.

Pros:  Love that my stomach can tolerate this, and my back pain simply vanishes within 30 minutes of taking just 1 capsule.

Cons:  None.
