I learned about Neal’s Yard Remedies a couple years ago on a direct sales advertising list. It seemed intriguing but very English. When I met Judy & learned about her business story & passion for these products, I learned that the company has been right here in the USA also! & celebrities like Corrine Bailey Ray, Oprah & many other magazines, & even Benedict Cumberbatch love NYR.
Neal’s Yard Remedies strikes me on 2 points. 1) Their items are all award-winningly very natural & fair to the earth. This article on their site summarizes some of this. 2) Their items are all therapeutically beneficial. That has always been the NYR focus. Helping people.
I could not select only 1 item to try so Judy recommended a few favorites to me & now I know why they are her favorites.
My favorites (in order):
- Wild Rose Beauty Balm
- Rose & Geranium Roll On Deodorant
- Melissa hand cream
- Goodnight Pillow Mist
- Calendula & Oat Lotion
I have recently discovered some fun ways to use rosewater, so the Wild Rose Beauty Balm & Rose & Geranium deodorant were natural picks.
This article shares 3 best ways to use the balm. I love smelling the roses on my lips as a chapstick & it has been wonderful & not oily as a balm on my wintry chapped hands that have also had some recurring eczema issues.
Judy recommended this deodorant for me instead of the peppermint/lime because the rose is a little more suited for sensitive skin.
With a beautiful floral scent, our Rose & Geranium Deodorant delivers aluminum free, clinically proven 24hr protection. It has been formulated to help naturally guard against odor and wetness with cleansing shikimic acid and moisture-absorbing bamboo powder. A combination of organic essential oils delivers a gentle yet effective way to face the day with confidence.
I tested the deodorant’s 24 hour claim on a crazy, stressful, & long day for me. 12 hour work day followed by my weekly yoga class. & it was the first day after the bank that I worked for merged with another. I put the deodorant through that rigorous test & I think it lasted me about 22 hours. Not too bad at all!
The Melissa hand cream (a.k.a. lemon balm) is thick but not too thick or greasy as some can be.
With softening mallow extract and the delicate scent of lemon balm, this cream nourishes, protects and conditions.
The Calendula & Oat lotion is also the perfect lotion texture & is especially geared for sensitive skin. It also is a help to my eczema when I just want to use something light & use a lotion over my whole hands. I don’t have to worry about anything in the lotion causing more flare.
Combines essential fatty acid rich oils of borage and evening primrose with extracts of calendula and oat to gently soothe and moisturize dry, problem skin.
Suitable for extreme dryness and sensitive skin
Suitable for Sensitive Skin
The Goodnight Pillow Mist is one of the newest NYR products for 2017. In a consumer trial, 81% of people found that it helped calm & relax at night time. I certainly need this as I have struggled off & on lately with my own sleeping, especially staying asleep. I first sprayed the mist on my sleeping pillow, but I don’t smell it much (I suppose I keep my face far too far up-tilted) so I have come to spray the mist on the pillow that I snuggle with.
Prepare to say goodnight with this deeply relaxing mist. A therapeutic blend of organic essential oils promotes a sense of calm for a more restful night.
Neal’s Yard Remedies is a wonderful business opportunity to make some extra income.
Neal’s Yard Remedies also has a rewards program to earn free & discounted products.
