Norwex Products


                                              Norwex Products

Norwex Products are products that are simple easy to use cleaning products
I love love these products.  All you need to clean a sink or a counter is one of their microfiber cloths and water.  This is all I need to clean my whole house.
The microfiber cloths  I do not know how they do it but they clean like nothing I have ever seen.
My son who is not into doing anything natural  he makes fun of me all the time
Last week I was looking all over for my water bottle and my microfiber cloth and low and behold I find it with him cleaning his car with it.
His car now looks like a brand new car when it is over 14 years old now.
What i also like but these cloths is that when they are dirty you just plop them into your washer and wash them accept they do suggest that you use a natural detergent
They have also microfiber glass cleaners for eye glasses.

You have got to see all these great products take a look at my website.  They are fantastic.
My website is

Thank you

My Snap Insulin Pump by Asante


There is a new insulin pump on the market and it is fantastic.  It is called the Snap Insulin Pump by Asante and it really is a snap to use .  This pump makes life so much easier for people with Type 1 or even Type 2  Diabetes.  You do not have to put in batteries to it and it  is the only pump that uses glass cartridges of Humalog insulin.  They also say that you will never have any air bubbles in the pump  so less chances of having higher blood sugars.  
I have always have good A1C's but with this pump I think they will be even better.  The Asante Snap Insulin Pump does not say that if you go on this pump you will have better A1C's but for me I know I will.  I already have had to do some adjustments with my basil rates.  For me this pump is fun to be on.  My first time changing the insulin pump cartridge I was so surprised how easy it was.  You have three pieces of equipment.  The controller,  the Body compartment which is where the Cartridge goes in and has the battery to it and the Insulin Cartridge.  The body compartment is disposable so you always have a new battery .  You just put a cartridge of Humalog insulin into the Body compartment .  You then just put on your tubing to the Cartridge of insulin then snap the Body compartment into the controller  compartment.  Then you just prime then go to the screen for the Cannula and prime the Cannula and you are done.    The one thing that I really love about this pump is that you push one button and you are on the Status screen seeing all the information that you want to know.  I love love this pump.
They are having a special right now you go on the pump for a month free of charge, they give you all the supplies you will need.  They say that it could be less then a month to try it out depending on how much insulin you take.
You get to see if you like it.  After 1 day of being on it I  jumped on it.   I told my sales rep put the papers through I want this pump.  They are also having a special right now that if you decide to go on the pump  then if your pump is still under warranty  then most insurances will not cover another pump but with this pump if you are still under warranty all you do is tell the representative that you want to go on the pump and they will give you a form to fill out to trade in the pump you have.
this is what i did  then i just waited until the insurance approved everything for the pump supplies.    Your new pump will then be sent out to you .   This is only going on until November 24th for the trade in program.  The screen looks smaller then most pumps but it is really not it is bigger they use bigger font size on it.  They had someone that used to work for Medtronic tell them the things they liked about Medtronic and the things they did not like about Medtronic Insulin Pumps.  They took that information and made this pump.  It is as they say a snap to work.  Most people can wait until a week before they will have to change their Humalog cartridge on this pump .   I have a large dose of Basal rates so for me I made  it in 4 days but when I was on the Animas Ping I was changing out cartridges every 1 and half to 2 days.  My sales rep for the Pennsylvania area is Andy  Holder his telephone number is 610 999 6312 if you  are interested or would like more information about this pump please call him.  I am so thankful that I  took the plunge and decided to do the trial run for this pump .  I can almost say it is fun to be on this pump.  One more item of why I love this pump to see your status screen you push  one button and you have everything right in front of you.  If  you are a Type 1 or Type 2  Diabetic you will  want to be on this pump Call Andy today so you can get the information and go for the Free trial of this pump.  I liked it so much I signed up for it the day of training for the free trial.  I am going to have my new pump this week.   Andy Holder's telephone number to learn about and to go on the free trial of this pump is   610 999 6312.  I hope you will try out this pump.

Sincerely Yours

Gluten Free Everything Under the Sun Summer Salad


The summer months I do not do much cooking .  It is just too hot to turn on the oven and make one of my master pieces
When it is hot out my husband is not hungry he is just happy with a sandwich,
I on the other hand am hungry so I am always trying to figure out what I am going to have
A few weeks back I was trying to make something that would be good tasting and really good for me
I began thinking up things and I came up with quite a winner of a everything under the sun salad
Here is my recipe
1 Package Quinoa Mediterranean this is at Giant on the top shelf in the rice Aisle
Make the Quinoa as directed on the package then place it in a large serving bowl
Slice up 5 stalks Celery
1 Bermuda sliced Onions or if you like better Red Onion
2 to 3 stalks Broccoli tops chopped up
1 can Chick Peas
1 can Eden Organic Cajun Rice & Beans this is also at Giant food stores in the organic gluten free Aisle
1 can WestBrae Natural Vegetarian Organic Salad also at the Giant Food store in the organic gluten free Aisle.
1 cup cooked Brown rice  
Mix everything together then season lightly with what ever spices you like.  I usually use a little garlic salt and pepper
I put about 1 cup to 1 and half cups of this salad over a plateful of Romaine lettuce
Then I drizzle 1 table spoon of Ken's Caesar dressing
I put about 2 tablespoons of shredded  Italian cheese over top of everything
This salad has helped my diabetes and my Celiac disease .  It gives me more energy and it helps out my blood sugars.  I love it .
When I first made this salad I thought I would have the salad for the whole week to have for dinner.  I was wrong.  My family began nibbling at it and in no time I have had to make this up 3 times in the last week
This is now my go to salad it  is really easy to make and it is good for all

Shea and Mango Butter Lotion Candle


One of my favorite products on the Pink Papaya's website is the Shea and Mango Butter Lotion Candle.  Its starts out as a candle, you light the candle and after it  burns for awhile you blow it out and it becomes a soft soothing super moisturizing lotion.  This is even good for sore achy muscles.  It starts soothing right away and gives your skin lots of softness and warmth.  The candle part of it can be used again and again and it is all natural and gluten free of course.  It comes in three different scents  and the Shea and Mango Butter Lotion Candles are 5 oz
Lavender and Sweet Orange item number 00014
Grapefruit and Bergamot      item number 00016
Lemon Yuzu                          item number 00453
Once again the website is

I wanted to let you know that at Aldi Stores they have just had shipped in the US gluten Free Products there are many to choose from.
They are priced significantly lower then  regular super markets
I tried their Live G Free Light & Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes.  They were really very good .
The price for the Pancakes was 2.69 for a package of 12 of them.  They have all sorts of products
They are trying this out and they say that they will carry a lot of these products but they will be picking and choosing which ones sell better.  These are the ones that they will be keeping but they say that they will be adding more products.
If you go to   you can put in the store locator , once you have the store in your area put in the search bar Gluten free products and they will have all their gluten free products and the prices for them.  I am very impressed with their gluten free pancakes and will be trying the other products .  There are about 30 different products
I was so impressed that they brought in their product line of gluten free  products and that the prices were so good.
I hope you will try out these great products I know this is where I will be going for my gluten free products now

Sincerely Yours

Skinner's Salve


Skinner's Salve is fantastic.  this salve takes care of any need you might have for pain relief or even mosquito bites.

I began using Skinner's Salve for itchy skin it was amazing.  It took the itch out right away.   This product is completely all natural.

I began to use it for any type of ailment I  had even headaches.   I would just put it on my far head rub it in and presto no more pain

I have now a frozen shoulder that I  am in pain almost every day
I thought well it worked for my other ailments mind as well  see if it will work for this
The one day I was in so much pain I was seeing stars and crying out loud.
I grabbed the jar and began putting it on my shoulder.  I was not really thinking it would work.  It did and then some, no more pain no more stiffness .  I could move my shoulder

I use it for sinus problems mosquito bites pain in any area and it goes away in a very short amount of time.

I have a friend staying with us, she does not have any dental or health insurance. She  is trying to get some now.  Her wisdom teeth were coming in and she was in sheer pain.  she was taking Advil and a few other things to help the  pain.
She said to me I can not take anything else but I am still in so much pain.  I said to her here take this my Skinner's Salve.  She does not believe in natural products.   I said you have nothing else to lose try it.  I said to her do not put it in the inside of your mouth put it around your sinuses and your jar line and your cheeks .  She said to me you are nuts how is this going to help me?  It is in my tooth.  I said just try it.  She put it on her face where i had told her to put it.   She  looked at me like I had 3 heads.  In about 15 minutes later she said to me what is in this stuff?  It is relieving the pain
There is  no more throbbing pain. I explained to her that it is just petroleum and natural herbs .
  I do not like to take Advil or any type of pain medications,   because of the chance of having gluten in it.  I use this all the time now and it just works
The website is
I wanted to let you know about it in case you feel the same way that I do to get products that work and are natural to relieve what ails you

Sincerely Yours
