Supplements haul!

I recently went on a supplements haul!

B-12 vitamin spray — super important to get your B-12, especially since I don’t eat meat. The spray is cool because you can quickly and conveniently squirt it in your mouth and it tastes yummy!

Elderberry syrup — elderberry has been used since ancient times as a way of strengthening the immune system and fighting off colds.

Coconut oil (buttery) — coconut oil has so many health benefits. I have some I keep in my bathroom to use on my skin, but I wanted another for food/eating. This would be great to add to a cup of tea.

Collagen powder — this is also a protein powder, great for smoothies. Collagen helps strengthen hair, skin, and nails.

Hum probiotics — this is called “flatten me” and helps with bloating and digestion.

I also got some interesting stuff from Sacred Smoke Herbals.

Sage spray — not exactly a supplement, but sage is typically burned in order to cleanse your home/space, or “get rid of bad vibes.” I’m excited to find a spray version, because where I live, burning sage is going to set off the fire alarm!

Harmony CBD oil — this cinnamon flavored CBD oil is sativa dominant which makes it ideal to use in the morning, since it gives you energy! CBD has many benefits, including anti-inflammation and anxiety relief.

D8 cartridge — D8 is similar to D9-THC but milder and federally legal. It is neuroprotective, analgesic, and helps with digestion and anxiety.

Happy self-care Sunday!

  1. I haven’t tried CBD or THC even though it has made me curious. My husband won’t let me buy that stuff because he thinks it’s snake oil or something. I used to have a B12 spray but it didn’t have any flavor – yours sounds a lot better. Right now, I use a melatonin supplement powder that I add to water which is sugar-free and tastes like sour blue raspberry. I also use melatonin orange drops which are from the same company called NaturalCalm (www.naturalcalm.ca). I have been buying from them ever since I tried some of their samples.

    1. Hahaha, interesting! Ohh, yes this spay is surprisingly yummy! Ohhh, I love melatonin! It gives me super vivid dreams. I will totally check out that website. The ones I use now taste like chalk, blah!

      1. Same! Melatonin gives me super vivid dreams too. This is a Canadian website and the prices for Canadians is very reasonable. I am quite sure they ship to the states, and I am quite sure they sell their products in the states at the pharmacies too. They also sell magnesium anti-anxiety powders which they send me for free along with my orders. Itโ€™s a good company – I highly recommend! I specifically order the packets of melatonin (berry flavor) because I like how they are pre-portioned. Their containers are a bit deceiving because they look big but are only filled about halfway. So I just stick to the individual packets instead ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Ohh I can definitely use some anti-anxiety!!! And okay, that’s good to know! I really don’t like having to measure it out myself. Thanks for your tips. I am a supplements nerd ๐Ÿค“

      3. I used to be a supplement nerd until I pulled apart my cupboard one day and counted 30 things of supplements. A lot of them had expired, and idk if half of them really worked. Now I only buy a select few ๐Ÿค—

        At one point I used to sell supplements but they were expensive and nobody including myself could afford them on a monthly basis. Greedy companies and reps wanting their money made it very difficult to actually make a profit or decent commission.

      4. I can see that, I can see companies ripping you off with stuff that doesn’t work. Totally important to do your research and notice how different things effect you. And even the good ones are not worth overpaying for. Plus I think too many different supplements overwhelm the body. But I’m super interested in how all of them work. ๐Ÿค”

      5. When I find a product that works for me, I stick with it. Itโ€™s the melatonin powder, droplets (new product) and magnesium chewable supplements that I get from Walmart (nothing exciting), and vitamin C tablets that the family uses. All of these products work for me so I will continue buying them.

        Things I stopped buying: oregano oil, cranberry capsules, generic calcium supplements, expensive glutathione supplements from said company.

      6. Ooo nice! Since college I have tried to take multivitamins, extra B-12, Ashwagandha (herb for stress/energy), melatonin (before bed), and hemp seed oil as my staples, and then trying other things occasionally. Now I still have the same staples but instead of hemp seed I use CBD. I take iron during my period. I use many other different herbs too but inconsistently, and now trying the probiotics and other stuff mentioned in this post. I have to say that since trying elderberry syrup for the first time, it’s sooo delicious, it’s absolutely nothing like cough syrup which makes me gag. And to add I’ve found CO-Q-10 great for energy but way too expensive to take on a regular basis.

      7. I think youโ€™d really enjoy studying holistic medicine or taking some courses in neutracetical science. I studied neutracelticals as a minor to complement my bio degree and it was the only thing that I found interesting. A naturalpath/homeopath would be the perfect career for you imo ๐Ÿ™Œ

      8. They should reply to your message soon. I have had good customer service experiences with this company. I want to say yes, but don’t quote me on that. I know that they sell some of their products in the US (but I think it depends on the state).

      9. I haven’t heard anything yet unless it got buried somewhere in my email or spam. I can always just try ordering and see what happens haha! But I do need to clear out my inbox haha, it might be in there somewhere…

      10. If you try ordering something, it will probably tell you whether or not there is a “shipping fee.” All of my orders have free shipping because I order the sample packets (pre-measured doses, which I prefer anyways). Shipping for you should be free.

        I am sorry that they haven’t replied yet. Usually, they reply pretty quickly. Then again, it’s Easter weekend so maybe that’s why?

      11. That’s good to see that they responded! That website sounds promising ๐Ÿ˜Š Two days ago, I ordered some magnesium gummies from NaturalCalm and a few more packets of the melatonin sleep powder. The other day I bought some Jameson magnesium gummies (I take magnesium for tinnitus) and the dose was so low compared to other brands…. it was quite disappointing.

      12. I realized that the site they sent me to only offers “sprays” for your skin… which I think is cool, but I think I’d prefer powder/something you eat. I’m sure I can find them somewhere. And that’s very disappointing about the low dose!! That makes you wonder what’s the point!

      13. I visited that site and I noticed the same thing – they don’t seem to carry the powders. I have seen some of the powders at CVS in Washington state, but they did not have the melatonin powder.

        Right now, I am actually going to order the magnesium lavender gel from naturalcalm.ca because I get the worst leg cramps at night. The dr told me to up my daily dose by a lot, and gummies just aren’t helping with the leg cramps. The pain is bad, so I will be looking into the gels/sprays.

        If you’re interested, I don’t mind mailing you a couple packets of the melatonin sample packets (powders) to try. I can only fit 2 packets in an envelope though (I mail flat items because Canada is $$$) ๐Ÿ˜†

      14. That is so kind of you ๐Ÿ™‚ I will have to look harder for these packets! Otherwise that would be amazing!! And I’m sorry to hear about your leg cramps, that’s awful. Topical is probably much more acute, especially if you apply directly to legs, so maybe if you use that at night then it should help.

      15. If youโ€™re still interested, feel free to email me (contact me section). I would need your address.

        Also, Iโ€™m currently out of the packets but I ordered some more melatonin packets a few days ago! Also, I ordered a bottle of magnesium gel from the same website so Iโ€™m really hoping that helps with the leg pain.

      16. I just found it on Thrive market! I ordered the gummies and the melatonin sleep powder, super excited to try!!! I used the magnesium spray about two hours ago and it works really well, I can still feel it now, so I think you will really benefit from the gel! I’m super surprised, I feel like this works even better than CBD. I’m seriously in love with magnesium now ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃโค๏ธ

      17. I havenโ€™t heard of Thrive market but Iโ€™m really happy that you managed to find them!! I hope you like them as much as I do ๐Ÿ™‚ I ordered the gel instead of the spray…. tbh I was torn between the two options. CBD Iโ€™ve never tried because my husband wonโ€™t let me โ€œuse those products.โ€

  2. Oh, I like the idea of a sage spray! The leaves smell nice when fresh, but burning them as incense has the unfortunate tendency to send me running along with any negative energy. Not sure what that says about me. ๐Ÿ˜…
