A good friend of mine from our local MOPS group started a company called Granny's Green Goo. She makes all the salves and more by hand with high quality ingredients. Her products bring herbal healing to your home. They range from her GGG - Signature Herbal Multi- use Salve to Teething Gel and even After Ink salve.
Today I will be reviewing the following products: GGG, Sun-Day, and Shay Butter & Herb Lip Balm in Peppermint and Vanilla.
GGG is the salve that started it all. "It contains six healing herbs in a coconut/olive oil and beeswax base. No artificial preservatives, colors, fragrances, or petroleum products. Goes on smoothly so won't stretch broken or raw skin."
It really is the do it all salve. Use it on diaper rash, cuts, burns, chapped skin, eczema, cold sores, stretch marks, bee stings and more! The scent is very mild and earthy. I used it on a rash on my hand and it worked to clear it up quickly.
It comes in three different sizes 4 oz, 1 oz, and .25 oz.
Sun-Day is natural sun block. I know you've heard all about the bad stuff in typical sunscreen. This is nothing like that stuff. "Sun-Day sun block is made with a number of skin loving oils like carrot seed, coconut, avocado, and shea butter. All of these oils help protect your skin from the suns rays, but the real all star is our non-nano, high quality, Zinc Oxide. This ingredient boosts our sun stick up to 30+SPF and provides broad protection from both UVA and UVB rays of the sun. This is due to natural properties of zinc oxide, which produces a physical barrier on the skin to block the sun's rays. There is a little bit of peppermint essential oil which not only makes it smell good, but it also lends a cooling effect to the skin, and rosemary essential oil to act as a natural bug repellent. Perfection."
I have to say I love this stuff. The only issue I had was that it takes a little bit longer to rub into the skin than other sunscreens. Honestly, that doesn't matter to me. What matters is that not only do we not have to have those icky chemicals but the sun doesn't get to burn us either!
It is available in two sizes; a 1 oz stick and a 3 oz squeeze bottle. And, remember a little goes a long way!
Shea Butter and Herb Lip Balm is exactly as it sounds. It is an amazingly moisturizing lip balm made with GGG Special Infused coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, essential oils. The lip balm comes in your choice of Vanilla, Peppermint, Cinnamon, or Tangerine.
They go on smoothly and keep my lips from drying out. I really like this stuff. I tried it in Vanilla and Peppermint. I think I will be trying Tangerine next as I love citrus scents.
It comes in an oval shaped lip tube which is perfect to easily apply to my lips.
