We are super excited to be expecting baby #6!  I’ve experienced varying degrees of morning sickness with all my boys so I was thrilled when Three Lollies sent me their Preggie Pops and Preggie Pop Drops to try.  Their products are all natural and drug free.  They use specific essential oils and flavors  along with aromatherapy to help ease queasy stomachs.

 

I’ve been lucky that I haven’t had too much nausea this time around although it has definitely picked up the last few days.  It’s more of an unsettled yucky feeling that comes and goes all day long.   I first tried a  sour raspberry Preggie Pop (that one is missing from the picture above).  It tasted really good, kind of like raspberry sorbet and within a few minutes my stomach started to feel more settled.  One of the flavors in the pack was lavender.  I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d like it but I have to say I was surprised.  It has a lighter flavor that I enjoyed.  Other flavors of pops included peppermint, spearmint, ginger, sour lemon, and sour tangerine.  Later that afternoon, I tried the Preggie Pop Drops.   The green apple was pretty sour which I liked.  I have found that sour tastes really help me.   Other flavors in the drops included sour raspberry sour lemon, and sour tangerine.  It’s hard for me to pick a favorite because they were all yummy.  I loved that they not only helped with the queasiness but also got rid of the yucky taste in my mouth that tends to accompany it.  I keep a few of these in my purse with me so I have them whenever I start to feel bad.  I have been very pleased with them and would definitely recommend them.

Three Lollies also has Queasy Pops and Queasy Pops Kids.  I plan on getting some of these for my sons.  It’s hard when they have upset tummies because they are too young for adult medicines.  I love the idea of giving them something all natural to help them feel better.  Plus they taste great so I know the kids would enjoy them.  You can find all of their products HERE.

The generous people at Three Lollies have offered a chance for TWO of our readers to try out the items I reviewed!  One winner will receive a box of their Preggie Pops and the other will win a pack of their Preggie Pop Drops.  To enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below.

Not only do we have 5 boys, we also have 2 dogs and 2 cats.  When I came across Doghouse Rock Pet Bed and Toy Detergent by Rockin Green, I was really interested.  Most detergents are designed to leave something behind. It could be fabric softener, fragrance or optical brightners. This residue is a breeding ground for dirt and bacteria and is toxic to your pet’s delicate system. Doghouse Rock doesn’t contain any of those.  It is a clean rinsing, residue free detergent that is safe for all your pet’s bedding and stuffed toys.

 

I used the detergent on a couple of our dogs’ blankets.  This is our Maggie and Sammie 🙂

 

 

A few of weeks ago, they decided to confront a skunk in the backyard.  It was not pretty!  The smell was HORRIBLE!  It took 2 weeks for the smell to fully dissipate from the house and 2 vinegar baths for the dogs to smell better.  however, it tends to reappear when they get wet.  According to our vet, this could be the case for months.   Because of this, the blankets still have a slight skunk odor at times.  I couldn’t wait to see how   Doghouse Rock worked on them.  I followed the directions and did a warm water rinse first and then washed the blankets on a normal cycle.  I was really happy with the results!  The blankets came out clean and odor free!  Even the underlying skunk smell was gone 🙂  Rockin Green detergents are safe for all washing machines and you only need to use 2 tablespoons per load.  I really like knowing that not only is the detergent safe for my pets but it’s also safe for the environment.  Even the bag is made from recycled materials!

Rockin Green makes many eco-friendly laundry products including Classic Rock.   It’s  great for cloth diapers, regular clothes and everything else!  It’s available in several fragrances including smashing watermelons, motley clean, and lavender mint revival just to name a few.  You can also get unscented detergent.  You can find all Rockin Green’s products HERE.

The people at Rockin Green have generously offered the chance for one of our reader’s to win a 45/90 load bag of detergent in the winner’s choice of scent/formula!  to enter, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below.
