Health & Beauty Tech I’m into Now!


Northern Light Technology Flamingo Lux Bright Light Therapy Floor Lamp

Why I like it:

Most S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder) lamps are small desktop lights that have to be positioned just right to be effective. This floor lamp is much more versatile; it stands 4 feet tall fully assembled with a rotating head which allows you to angle the light for maximum comfort. Electronically powered ballast assures reliable performance with no flicker and no hum. Offers 10,000 lux at Full Spectrum Lighting a comfortable distance of 12 inches, UV blocked. Made in Canada following strict CSA safety guidelines, Canadian Standards Association. I put it together myself in under 5 minutes.



Oral-B BLACK 7000 SmartSeries Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush with Bluetooth Connectivity Powered by Braun

Why I Like it:

It talks to your phone using Bluetooth giving you real-time feedback with the Oral-B app focuses brushing on your most important areas, tracks habits over time, motivates with helpful oral care tips, and senses when you brush too hard! Cross Action round brush head with perfectly angled bristles for a precise clean; though my favorite brush that comes with it is the whitening brush. I feel like I just came from a dental check up. Clinically proven superior 3D cleaning oscillates, rotates and pulsates to break up and remove up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

Rechargeable with 6 modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Deep Clean, and Tongue Cleaner.

Reminds you to floss and use mouthwash. Keeps a calendar on how long and how many times a day you brush. And more….

I’m lazy when it comes to dental care. The least amount of work the better! So I love to be told by the brush what to do to motive me!



Clarisonic Smart Profile Cleansing Brush


Why I Like it:

Just when I thought Clarisonic couldn’t get better, it did!!! It got intuitive! SMART technology enables the Smart Profile device to read the two new smart enabled brush heads and to automatically adjust between gentle and deep cleansing for an optimal head-to-toe experience. Brush Head replacement indicator illuminates to prompt you when it is time to replace the brush head. Speed auto-adjusts! Amplified turbo speed removes makeup 11x BETTER than hands alone delivering superior cleansing results. You can use 4 manual speeds as well!



DAFNI Hair Straightening Ceramic Brush

Why I Like it:

Heating to a safe 185°C/365°F in mere seconds, this tool evenly distributes heat without damaging your tresses in the process and you control the level of volume. Plus, it’s simple to use, no clips or fuss, you simply brush your hair! I love that it saves time! The bristles glide through your hair without tugging or pulling, creating straight, frizz-free strands fast.

Essential Oil of the Month: Clary Sage – the Hormonal Helper!

A three to five foot plant with pink, white or blue flowers that bloom in bunches. It is native to the northern Mediterranean, along with some areas in north Africa and Central Asia.

Scientific classification

Kingdom: Plantae




Order: Lamiales

Family: Lamiaceae

Genus: Salvia

Species: S. sclarea

Binomial name

Salvia sclarea

The herb derives its name from the Latin clarus, meaning, “clear.” Clary seeds have a mucilaginous coat, which is why some old herbals recommended placing a seed into the eye of someone with a foreign object in it so that it could adhere to the object and make it easy to remove. This practice is noted by Nicholas Culpeper in his Complete Herbal (1653), who referred to the plant as “clear-eye.”

The distilled essential oil is used widely in perfumes and as a muscatel flavoring for vermouths, wines, and liqueurs.

Steam Distilled from the leaves and flowers

Middle Note and a Fixative

Clean, Dry, Warm, Herbaceous, Musky, Bittersweet Floral Aroma

Blends well with:  

Bay, bergamot, black pepper, cardamom, cedarwood, chamomile, coriander, cypress, frankincense, geranium, grapefruit, jasmine, juniper, lavender, lemon balm, lime, mandarin, patchouli, petitgrain, pine, rose, sandalwood, tea tree  

Was commonly used for pain during childbirth. Helps balance emotions and hormones from PMS to menopause anxiety to stress. Used to help insomnia, menstrual cramps, lower blood pressure, disinfectant of skin and hard surfaces, oily skin and hair, respiratory problems, inflammation, aid digestion and sore throats.

If you are pregnant, receiving cancer treatment, or are taking chloral hydrate or hexobarbitone (specific to clary sage essential oil) interacts with the clary sage or have a weakened immune system the use of essential oil is not recommended!
While essential oil will not go rancid, carrier oils can. Store your carrier oils in a cool, dry, and dark place.
