School Of Wash Hand Made Hair & Body Spritz Review, in GreenTea & Lemon Grass.

You had me at Lemongrass & Greentea.  Not only did School Of Wash create Handmade Bath Products, like Hair and Body Spritz, but it is also Paraben-free, Talc-free, SLS-free, Sulfate-free, Sodium Chloride-free and no added colors or dyes.  I am totally a healthy hair snob, mainly because I donate my locks, and if it's not good enough for my hair, it's not good enough for my son's either.

The first thing I noticed about the spray, was the aluminum bottle.  As soon as I opened the box, I spritzed my hair, and face. Experienced a fine, cool mist on my face.  It's humid here lately, so it was highly welcomed, and much needed.  The scent of the Lemongrass & GreenTea Hair & Body Spritz genuinely compliments eachother perfectly without overpowering.   It's just a light, natural crisp aroma. The best I can explain the scent, is a sweet, earthy smell.  Some of the ingredients inside the spray itself are organic aloe juice, witch hazel, organic black willowbark extract, and tea tree essential oil. Since it passed my test, I decided to try it on my 2 year olds hair.  He has super fine strawberry blonde hair that he will twist, and knot up.  With the School Of Wash Spray It hasn't been a horrible task to keep his handsome locks straight. Great products like these just aren't for little girls.  I prefer products like these for my son.  It smells great, it does a superior job keeping his hair shiney, and knot free.  Plus he knows he's adoreable, and isn't stinky.

Bonus. School Of Wash can be for Her, Him, Kids, and Pets.  

There are literaly hundreds of different hand made scent variations to pick from School Of Wash. I am a sucker for leave in conditioners, and I find myself using SOW, and backburnered the others. I already want to try SOW's Cherry Almond, and then the Eucalyptus & Spearmint. Honestly, One of every smell I would probably squeal over, and baby my hair even more (I still haven't cut it yet this year to donate to locks of love!! I am going to soon. This will be my 5th time donating since Fracturing my leg.  I figured since I have cadavers, and an ORIF in my leg, the most I can do is donate my hair to someone that needs it, someone donated their bones so I can still walk. I'll keep donating my hair til that day comes I can give more too.)

I honestly spritz my face, and hair before leaving the house into this heat.  

School Of Wash has earned a Label on my blog, as Holiday Gift Guide Worthy.  Well for any time of the year too, but if anyone wants to know what to get me, or to donate one to someone in need?? THIS! This would be great!  For more info on how to donate to A Little Sunshine In A Bottle, to help The organization, Lily Pad, whom provides a 24-hour crisis line, forensic interviews, forensic exams and evidence collection, medical accompaniment, legal advocacy and support groups for victims and their families. , you can read it here on School Of Wash's page.  Everything behind this company is admireable.  It's unreal that this was created by love, and wanting to share at camp, to now this.  

I received product to facilitate a review.  The Product does say external use only, and keep out of reach of children, which is normal.  That just means don't let the kiddo drink it, or rub it in membranes that shouldn't have anything irritable in, 'nuff said.

Don't forget to check out School Of Wash at, Facebook, and Twitter.  Think you've tried a lot of differen't hair, and body spritz,  browse through their drop down menus for scents, and I bet there's atleast 100 varations you haven't tried yet.

Dragon & Phoenix Filtering Tea Mug, and Cherry Almond Black Tea Review.

I have always been a huge fan of tea.  A good cup of tea helps me de-stress myself.  Even at a young age, I would drink Tea with some of my Aunts.  It was our thing to do.  Over the years, I would much rather drink Tea, than Sodas too.  It's just what I love.  A lot don't know this, but the Green in my blog name is for Green Tea.  Vics is for my Son's name.  Two things that I love more than anything.

I discovered, and just had to try some of their loose leaf teas.  Since it was my husbands, and I's anniversary I thought a matching set of the Dragon & Phoenix Filtering Tea Mugs would be ideal. They are! The pictures online do not do the cups justice.  They are beautiful.  I actually have a dragon tattoo, so I'm a little biased when it comes to them.  I think we all need a little power, good fortune, and luck.  The Phoenix is just as iconic, and full of meaning.  As for life, we are all knocked down, and want to rise from our own ashes.  That is what life is,  things happen, you do everything you can to overcome it, and move on.  

The above video I took to show just how easy it is to brew your own cup of tea.  Nothing special to do. Just add the tea, pour hot water over the tea, put the lid on, and let it steep.  The lids themself help steep the tea faster, and keeps it hot for longer.  Not all mugs have that, or the removeable filter.  In the video I show how beautiful the tea turns out once the filter is lifted up.  You can also see how none of the loose leaf tea even gets into the brewed tea itself.  These Dragon & Phoenix mugs retail for under $10.00.  Each Mug is sold seperately, one side is a dragon, and the other side is a pheonix that wraps around the mugs.  If mythical beings aren't your thing, there are other designs for the filtering tea mugs.

I really enjoyed the Cherry Almond Black loose leaf tea.  There are pieces of sliced almonds, and dried cherries through out the tea itself.  I was impressed with the quality, and the smell of the tea as soon as I even opened the tin lid's, and even more so once the tea started to steep.  I am also going to try the Liche Green Tea, and Japanese Green Tea.  I drink green tea mostly, so I wanted to try the Cherry Almond Black Tea first.  Both myself, and my husband thought the tea was strong (just the way we like it, you should be able to taste the tea.) and went down smoothely.  I could taste the almond, and cherry, gave it a nice extra sweetness that the stevia sugar I used in it amplified.  I also like a little fat free milk in my tea.  I'm ready for another cup.

There will also be a giveaway for a Smart Tea Maker, and 4 ounces of the winners choice of tea! So make sure you come back to check that out.  I promise you, you will not be dissapointed!
