Review of A Remedy for That products

***Including tallow balm and Magic Elixir (fire cider).

I have offered products from this vendor to the buying club for a couple of years now, and they have become increasingly popular. It has been great watching her line slowly grow, if you haven’t checked out all her offerings recently, you need to! She originally started offering just tallow balm, elderberry syrup, and Magic Elixir (fire cider). She now offers a variety of personal care products, including starter packs and gift sets!

Last month I ended up testing out a new-to-me product as part of an oops, and I’m so glad that oops happened. Melissa shipped a boxful of her product to me, and the lid for 1 of the whipped tallow balm loosened up, so a tiny bit leaked. Mainly it just made a greasy mess of itself, the product was fine. But she told me to keep it, and she direct-shipped a replacement to the customer so it would arrive in perfect condition (something I always appreciate from the vendors I work with). Well, I feel like this oops was meant to be. It arrived in March, when both Hubby and I were experiencing pretty dry, end of winter skin. He had started doing a lot of spring yardwork and had perpetually dry hands from being in the dirt. The balm has a very greasy, wet feeling when you 1st put it on, but it absorbs surprisingly quickly. We much prefer the whipped to the non, which is much denser. We both feel like the whipped tallow balm has by far been the most moisturizing product we’ve ever used for our hands. I’m in my early 40’s, and look at my hands sometimes and feel like they’re starting to look like old lady hands, a bit wrinkly. No matter how much lotion I put on, it didn’t help with that. But I truly feel they have improved in that regard since using the tallow balm! I still like my good-smelling, all over body lotion (from Poofy) for the rest of my body. But specifically for our dry hands, I can guarantee we will be keeping Melissa’s whipped tallow balm on hand (pun intended!). My Hubby even commented that we cannot be without it!

A few other products I have tried: Magic Elixir. Many of you have likely heard of Fire Cider, this is Melissa’s version of it. I LOVE the flavor of it. I usually take a shot glass of it as often as I remember during cold/flu season, as each ingredient is selected for its immune-boosting properties. But I also use it as kind of a vinaigrette sometimes! One of my favorite dishes I used it for was a brussels sprout-based stir-fry with some bacon crumbles in it. Right at the end I doused it with a shot of the Magic Elixir while on high heat. It gave it such an awesome tang! Here’s her description from her Etsy shop page: Magic Elixir is my version of the classic Fire Cider. I use local and organic roots and vegetables to steep for a minimum of 6 weeks. Then I strain and top with true raw honey. The recipe for fire cider has been around for a long time. My version of this recipe is unique and the local honey ready pulls the flavors together. Ingredients: Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, onions, garlic, ginger, horseradish, peppercorn, lemon, orange, spicy pepper variety, thyme, rosemary, fermented turmeric powder, raw honey.

I absolutely love this pic of her Magic Elixir steeping:

Other very popular items she offers are her ready-to-go Elderberry syrup as well as kits to make your own! I do make my own, and tried one of her kits last winter and absolutely loved it. It was super easy, and the taste was great. She takes all of the guess work out of it for you.

I plan on continuing to offer these products during each of the 2 buying club orders annually (March/Sep). So that’s a great time to stock up while getting products from many other vendors, and paying just 1 shipping fee. But if you can’t wait until then, here’s the link to shop directly from her Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ARemedyForThat
