  • Michelle Witt - Top quality Frankincense Boswellia Serrata oil!

    This Frankincense is so great. It is of a really good quality. It is Boswellia Serrata variety which is commonly known as Oilbanum and is considered to be the richest most exquisite in scent and quality. This aroma has lemon, citrus and pine notes. This makes a great oil you can use for help with yoga practice by rubbing is on your body to stay limber and relaxed. It also helps to encourage healthy moods. I am a huge oil fanatic and I really like the quality of this oil a lot. It is pretty much from what I understand the best quality and variety of Frankincense. I will continue to use it and recommend it. I did receive this product for free in exchange for my honest review and I can attest that all statements made are my own from my usage.

  • Sloan - Weathertech IS the GOODS!

    Weathertech mats are Far & Away the best mags on the market! I've had them on a Civic and now my 13 Accord Sed. Digital fit is all I'll ever buy. They're amazing at trapping dirt of any kind and at containing water and or spills. They're extremely good looking and have a "factory" look to them. Two minor things prevent a 5 star rating. #1 the driver's side left foot area doesn't come up as high as I'd like, as it only comes up 4-6 in past the floor. This leaves the e brake petal area (if u will) uncovered and limits stretching on a road trip, again, a small gripe. #2 is the same concept below the driver's seat beginning. The back most part of the mat, going away from the steering wheel, is very shallow and barely comes off the floor at all. There is no hinderence from Weathertech making this place come higher, as it would not interfere w anything. Again, this is small, but IF u were to spill a large drink, u would have to VERY carefully remove the mat, in order to avoid getting liquid on your carpets. Weathertech is the goods and every car owner that cares about their vehicle at all, should purchase a full set of mats as soon as the buy a vehicle, if not before;). This would've been a 4.5 star review if that were an option.

  • Joseph Petrashek - I feel like drenching her in the spray. But company says it may be overwhelming for the dog. (sigh)

    Not quite sold on it yet. Sprayed down my red haired toy poodle twice and rubbed it into her hair real well. Fleas were still biting her an hour later. Bathed her well for 6 minutes with lots of Dawn d/w liquid, as other research indicated, to no avail. Treated her again with the Wondercide, now a total of 4 times in a week, and she is still biting and scratching after the little buggers. Electronic pest collar around her neck isn't working either. I was thinking about taking her to the movies, getting some hot buttered popcorn, putting them both in my lap for awhile. When the fleas smell the hot buttered popcorn, they'll jump into the bucket, she'll be pest free and then we'll leave the bucket there and flee the theater!

  • Jeff C. - I bought this for my Dad.

    My Dad has poor hearing in one ear. He had a hard time changing batteries in his regular hearing aids and stopped wearing them.
