Koru Naturals Review

  This busy momma loves when I get the opportunity to review something that is actually for me and not for the homeschool classroom and family per se. Although sometimes I share! Koru Naturals has a line of all natural beauty products and it was really hard to choose. I based my decisions on my personal needs and really prayed about my choices. In the end I was sent Emu Oil and Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner.

 I have probably not been this excited about a review coming in the mail since I started reviewing way back 5 years ago. I do not often get to splurge on things for me even if they are beneficial and I have been praying for help with my skin and hair issues since I was a kid. Years ago, many years ago I developed a flaky scalp and hair line, as well as dry patches on my face. It has never been officially diagnosed as it does not meet the characteristics as a whole of any one issue so as most weird issues I have it has been lumped under one of the many things my MS causes. Lovely right? Not so much!

  I have tried more products than I can count, some will work for a while and then I am back to square one. I am game for anything even Emu Oil. I even endured the countless teasing from my boys, their favorite phrase is how do you get oil from an Emu? Do you milk it? Ugh Boys, gotta love them.

  As soon as the box arrived I tore into it and went straight to the bathroom, I had researched the products thoroughly before they arrived so now all that was left was to put them to use. The Emu Oil is a milky substance that looks like it is greasy but really doesn't feel that way and  goes a long way with just a little bit. I put a quarter size drop in the palm of my hand and dabbed my finger in it and rubbed it into my hairline and face. I was amazed at how it did not make my face feel greasy at all but yet I instantly felt my face feel a little bit smoother.

Koru Naturals Review
I used it 2 times daily once in the morning and once before bed and let me tell you I am so pleased I almost cannot believe it. My face feels smoother and less dry and flaky. I am not using harsh creams that left my face red and blotchy anymore. I am so impressed and I will definitely be buying more when I run out.

The other thing I have been using it for is my dry, frizzy hair. God um... Blessed me... with naturally curly hair and while I love the look I hate frizz and I hate dumping multiple products into my hair to tame them. I am a no frills no make up kind of gal so this drives me nuts. So I used a quarter size drop again and worked it through my hair from the root out and OMG! I was so excited and it stayed with my hair all day long. My other products I had to use sometimes 3 times in the day to keep the frizz out especially in the dry Michigan Winters and Humid Summers. I cannot wait to put this to the test this Summer, That is if we ever warm up around here.
Koru Naturals Review

My other products the Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner, let me just say Heaven in a shower, I have decided to not share with the family, sorry boys these are mom's and mom's only!! I love how my scalp is not so dried out, now it is not cleared up but I do feel as if it is on it's way. The texture of my hair is so soft and hydrated and all with Natural ingredients! I love it. It is not a strong scent, which I am not telling my boys because then they will definitely want to use it! My secret Ok?

You don't have to use much and it just works it's magic and your hair and scalp are left singing like the birds a song of praise and glory.

I am going to be ordering some more of the products from Koru Naturals especially the lip balm as my lips could use some Koru Magic as well.

  If you like Natural products that work!, You need to order some Koru Naturals today!! The Emu Oil comes in a 2 oz bottle like I received for just $9.85, they also sell a 2 sizes of a larger bottle too,  and the Manuka Oil and Honey Shampoo and Conditioner are $14.95 for the set. This is so worth the investment, you will be able to feel better and know that you are using natural products on your skin and hair and you can toss all the others in the trash!!

IndoctriNation Movie TOS Schoolhouse Review Crew Review 2015 #hsmommas #hsreviews

Pin It Now!    Back from a long winter break with the crew, but I am ready to be back and bring you some amazing reviews and we are starting off with one that is near and dear to my heart.

  Great Commission Films sent some of us crew folks their movie IndoctriNation. The story of public schools and the decline of Christianity in America.
IndoctriNation DVD Review
Geared to parents, pastors and teachers, but I let my  high schoolers  watch it with me, this DVD sells for $19.95 and there is also a book you can get to go along with it, either purchased separately or in a bundle those prices are on the website.
We are a family that has a long history in the public school system, my husband and I both grew up going to PS and my oldest was a graduate from PS last year. My two younger boys have only been homeschooled for 5 years this past week. So I can speak from experience that some of my friends can not, our public school system is crumbling before our eyes and I strongly believe it has been happening ever since we took Jesus out of the schools.
IndoctriNation takes a look at the public schools and is mostly documentary with a little bit of testimony thrown in. The statistics are that 90% of americans send their kids to public schools. That is a ton of kids. While the numbers of homeschoolers grows for one reason or another, most of the time it is for religious purposes. Our reasons were many but one of them was we wanted our kids to know more of Jesus. 
102 minutes of a look into why there is no religious freedom in schools.
IndoctriNation follows Colin Gunn, homeschooling father of seven children and Scotland native turned Texan as he takes up a unique quest:  a school bus and go on a countrywide adventure  to explore what has become of public schools as they have changed over the years.
 Speaking with folks along his journey and what their opinions on the state of the public schools. Speaking to folks such as Ken Ham, Kevin Swanson and many more along the way.

 As we watched the movie, we experienced many emotions as a family, I myself am very passionate about the Public schools and how they failed my children so this film hit a raw nerve with me, now 5 years later it still can stir up emotions that I felt I had conquered. The mama bear in me just cannot seem to let those feelings go. We also felt  convicted. Do you know what your role as a Christian parent is in the education system? 

 Many parents take a backseat to education when they send their kids to PS or any type of school for that matter. I know we did for a long time, especially when things were going well for our kids in PS. After watching this movie, I have a different opinion of sorts on what a parents role, A Christian parents role should be when sending their kids off for their education, It truly made me think especially with a kiddo off at a secular college and two more leaving the nest soon. We as parents need to take part in education even if we choose not to homeschool. 
 Parents do not always have the option or the interest to homeschool, sending their kids to PS is the right choice for their family. I know that, and believe me I am not here to say if you send your kids to PS you are a bad parent. NOT AT ALL. I was one of the PS parents and my father worked in the PS system for almost 35 years. We are not anti PS at all. I think all parents Homeschool or Public School need to watch this movie. If you are a Christian parent or not you need to watch this movie. 
  IndoctriNation is enlightening and engaging, and powerful. It is eye opening and so much more. You need to see this and then let a friend see it too. We as Christian americans need to propel the movement to fix America and the Public School system this is our job as Christians we are God's people and we were put on this Earth to spread his message, 
Buy your copy today and then get inspired to do something!!
