InstaNatural Review 5


I am very excited to be trying a few more of InstaNatural's products! 
Scar Gel: I've been using this on a scar I had on my leg and on a couple smaller scars on my face (thanks to my fabulous skin during my teen years). It contains Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) to help stimulate the healing process, Gotu Kola to help restore healthy skin, and Green Tea, Fucoxanthin, Astaxanthin and Sea Kelp to help fortify the skin with antioxidants. to minimize external damage. I've only been using this a week, so I don't expect results yet, but I am hopeful to see some changes especially on the scars on my face! 

Peppermint Essential Oil: I really like the strong scent of the essential oils I tried. I use it in our diffuser after a long day and it helps me de-stress and relax. I've read about the benefits of peppermint oil to help with headaches. I have issues with migraines so I am definitely going to try rubbing some peppermint oil on my temples next time I feel one coming on and see if it helps! I also plan on using it in a sugar scrub to get my feet sandal ready!

Lemon Essential Oil: Even with all the snow on the ground, this oil is bringing spring sunshine into our home! We've been using it in our diffuser, I made a cleaner with it for our counter tops, and I've been using a few drops in our steam mop on our wood floors. It's such a wonderful scent, it brightens my mood immediately! I would love to try it in a skin care recipe as it is known to be a good astringent, to help cleanse and tone the skin, and delivers Vitamin C antioxidant benefits. I have read some articles that say you can use essential oils in food. I just wish these were food grade to further increase their uses! 

Both essential oil bottles are large and I can tell they are going to last me a long time!

  1. I also have a lot of problems with migraines, so if you do happen to use it and it works let me know! I am willing to try just about anything at this point. lol! Migraines are miserable! I'm also interested to know how well the scar gel works. I have a bunch of them on my hands and face that I would like to fade away. Great review!

  2. Thanks Julie! I will let you know! My migraines typically build so I am going to try using the peppermint oil before it gets bad and see if it works!

  5. OK, all these 3 products sound like winners to me. I have a scar om my forehead, since I was about 4. I wonder if that scar gel will make it better. Also, I too suffer from migraines. I knew green mint was great for it but I must now try something with peppermint for my awful headaches. Thanks for writing these reviews, Laura. They have been helpful to me.

  6. I've never tried essential oil but I have heard great things about them! Peppermint oil especially for nausea. I bet it's a calming scent to use on a long day too!
