Win A Supplement To Enhance Your Eye Health

40% of those over 40 feel uncomfortable driving at night. Are you one of them?

Driving at night, especially when it’s raining, can be particularly hazardous for drivers over 40 with vision problems. Changes to our eyes occur gradually, over many years, and we may not even notice them until the cumulative effect kicks in and our vision isn’t what it used to be.

As we age, our pupils shrink and don’t dilate as much in the dark, which reduces the amount of light entering our eyes. This can even make it seem as if we’re wearing dark sunglasses at night.

{Test This} Kiss My Itch Goodbye

Kiss My Itch Goodbye ($8 for 2oz) could be your scratching savior. For those of us affected by itchy skin, we know that it’s more than just a little annoyance.

Over time, excessive scratching can lead to red, cracked skin. Everyday creams often do little to combat the problem, whether it’s caused by the weather, fabric allergies, or a mild skin condition like eczema. Prolonged scratching also can cause infections and even scarring, so we better ditch the itch completely.

{Test This} Essence of Vali Soothing Sleep Gift Box


Possessing healing properties dating to 1st century Greece, aromatherapy flourishes today as a form of alternative medicine that uses “essential oils,” extracted from plants by steam distillation, to benefit our mood, mind, and general well being.  Aromatherapy is not just about smell– the essential oils have a strong chemistry, which work on an emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual level.  This practice is believed to trigger smell receptors in our nose and send messages through our nervous system to our brain, which controls our emotions.

Enter below for a chance to test Valerie’s unique, lavender-based Soothing Sleep Gift Box (retail value: $72).

Where did your inspiration come from in developing a line of essential oils?
I wanted to make a difference in the way people care for themselves. My personal interest in holistic healing and my business background helped me create quality aromatic blends for health and well-being that are well priced.

What are the different products in your line?
There are 10 different formulas that each address a common condition.  I’ve studied the chemistry of each oil, which helps me create blends with unique benefits.  For example, lavender, in the sleep blend, has sedative properties in its chemistry that can impact a person’s sleep.  All of my products are totally natural and made in New York and New Mexico.

What makes Essence of Vali products special?
They are highly effective because of their purity.  Some other products have chemicals in them, but ours are natural. They are also hand-blended and brewed for several days at our aromatherapy studio, instead of made in a factory.  Additionally, people really love the way our blends smell.  Our line appeals to a cross section of people because it addresses a spectrum of issues.

Where are your products sold and what do they cost?
The line can be bought through my website and other online retailers. Prices range from $8.50 for an individual mist to $60 for a 2oz bottle of EOV’s Eau du Parfum.

What is your best-selling product?
The sleep products sell best because many people have trouble sleeping.  For example, women in their fifties can have sleep difficulties as they go through perimenopause and menopause.

Valerie’s Soothing Sleep Gift Box, includes Sleep Concentrate and Soothing Mist for your bed linens; Sleep Massage & Bath Oil, and Sleep Bedtime Balm, to dab on your upper lip and pulse points.

Is this oil it takes for a great night’s sleep? 8 FOFs will test this.
