Help Save Our National Parks

Just in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks (CPANP) is launching an online storefront to boost the Coalition’s work protecting national parks and the National Park Service (NPS) mission. The storefront for the CPANP-branded merchandise is available at

CPANP Chair Maureen Finnerty said: “We have been hearing for years that people want to support the unique group that the Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks brings together.  As a non-partisan, independent organization, it can be challenging for us to raise funds.  We thought this was an interesting way that people who visit and love the parks could show their support for our mission.”


Visitors to storefront are greeted with this message: “The Coalition to Protect America’s National Parks is an independent, non-partisan organization with over 1,400 members, who are all current, former, and retired employees of the National Park Service (NPS). With nearly 35,000 years of combined service, we focus on the preservation and protection of America’s most precious natural and cultural resources. We use our voice to defend national monuments, to stop budget cuts and to protect our public lands from energy development. Your purchase helps the Coalition continue its work to support the NPS mission, the parks and NPS employees from a growing numbers of threats. Thank you for your support of this important work!” 

Featured items on the storefront branded with the “Our Blood Runs Green” message include t-shirts, sweatshirts, baseball caps, beach bags, messenger bags, kid’s clothing, water bottles and other drinkware, and a variety of lower-cost “stocking stuffer” items, including notepads, golf balls, stickers and mouse pads.

Woolzies pure essential oil peppermint

Peppermint is one of my favorite scents so when I had the opportunity to get Woolzies pure essential oil peppermint  at a discount I jumped on it!

Peppermint can be used for a wide variety of things such as: headache relief, anti-inflammatory,  anti-parasitic, antibacterial, digestive stimulant, stuffy nosses, and as a pain releaver.  It can also be used to keep ants at bay as well. I can also be used as a rodent deterant as well.


I have suffered from Chronic Migraines for years and I also have Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and several other health issues and peppermint really helps calm me and helps with the pain. I put peppermint on my temples and the back of my neck when I have a migraine or headache and it really helps.  I also put it on any of my other aches and pains and it helps with those as well.

It does well putting it in a oil diffuser and letting the fragrance fill up your room/house. It makes a house smell really good!

I would recommend this to anyone that has pain and wants a natural remedy or anyone that needs to get rid or rodents or ants.

Woolzies Best 100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil

Woolzies Best 100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil is the perfect essential oil for anyone that needs help with sleep. I put a few drop in my essential oil diffuser and once I get comfortable it doesn’t take me long to drift off to sleep. I have had chronic insomnia for years and have taken sleeping medications and none of them have helped. This really helps.  After reading some of the reviews on this product it looks like I am going to have to get some of Woolzies Wool Balls for my laundry.


This comes in a 1 ml bottle and has a top that allows you to measure drops out rather than with a dropper. I would recommend this to anyone that is wanting a reliable lavender essential oil that will help you sleep at night.

THE WRAP by Zen Jane

I have been wanting to try one of these types of wraps for a long time. I like this because this box comes with 4 wraps in it. Not only can these be used on your abdominal area but you can also use them on your arms, legs, waist, or hips…it just depends on where you need your body tightened and toned. I have always wanted to firm up my abdomen from my having my children so that’s where I am using my wraps. You put the wrap on, then wrap it in suran wrap, wear it for 45 minutes, then remove it and wash the area. I didn’t have any reaction to it. I didn’t experience weight loss yet but I have noticed some tightening and firming. You can do a wrap every 72 hours.

**I received this product free or at a reduced rate in exchange for my unbiased and honest opion. I was not paid to review this product.**

Bubba Earth Relief Joint Arthritis Relief Cream

‪#‎BubbaEarthRelief‬  Joint Arthritis Relief Cream is a great product to try if you have arthritis joint pain. Not only can this be used for joint pain it can also be used for muscle pain, carpal tunnel, sprains, tendonitis and plantar fascitis. It contains 7 anti-inflammatory ingredients.

One of the ingredients is Comfrey which is a powerful analgesic pain reliever that reduces inflammation causing the pain.

I have MS, Fibromyalgia, Degenerative Disk Disease, Osteoporosis, Arthritis, lower back pain, and other issues and I used Bubba Earth Relief and it really did help with some of the pain.

It arrived in a neat vintage looking metal container.  This is a cream that goes on smoothly and doesn’t leave any greasy feeling behind.  I really recommend it to anyone that suffers from any type of joint or muscle pain.

I did receive a free sample of this product in exchange for my honest opinion of it.
