All Natural Products – A Koru Naturals Review

What a blessing! That really sums it up for me. I was recently given the opportunity to review some great products from Koru NaturalsEmu Oil and New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream specifically. And I must say, I was very impressed with these products.

About Koru Naturals

Koru Naturals is a New Zealand company that produces quality, all-natural products that have never been animal tested. Their name “koru” means “newborn” chosen to symbolize new life, growth, strength and peace.

What I Received

We received from Emu Oil and New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream from Koru Naturals.

How We Used Them

When I was present with the Koru Naturals products I was given a choice of several of their products. I chose Emu Oil and New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream. I specifically chose the New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream because my baby had been suffering from a reoccurring diaper rash and the Lanolin Cream product stated it worked well on diaper rashes (as well as a wonderful skin soother for dry skin).

After reading through the ingredients online I figured it was worth a try. Boy was I glad we did. It cleared up my baby’s diaper rash almost immediately. The cream itself is very moisturizing and smooth – cooling almost, but with no odor and no stickiness to it. The baby soothed almost every time with the initial application of the New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream.

In fact her rash was so bad when we first received the cream that it was bleeding in places. We had tried everything from diaper brand changes, both cloth and disposable, cream and soap changes, diet changes, bath product changes, and just going diaper-less when possible. The New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream was the fastest and best relief of anything we have tried. What a blessing to finally see some relief for my baby.

The Emu Oil is silky smooth, colorless, and light to the skin. I used it on my face it in place of other moisturizers and felt good about using it because of the natural ingredients (100% natural Emu oil with no additives or preservatives). It was a very nice moisturizer and I didn’t need much in order to use it effectively.

I also used the Emu Oil on my hair to tame static (I have very thick, curly hair so I always need a little help in the winter). It was very effective in taming the static and fly-aways.


Overall I was very impressed with the quality products I received from Koru Naturals. The pricing is reasonable and the natural product were quality. I would certainly recommend their products and will be ordering another New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream to have on hand for my baby, and anything else that might come along.

You can purchase New Zealand Pure and Simple Lanolin Cream for $8.95 for a 3.53 ounce jar and Emu Oil for $9.85 for a 2 ounce bottle on the Koru Naturals website.

3 Ways to Manage Mama Stress

lady with coffeeI don’t know about you but I’m a homeschool mom. I just hang out with the kids all day and there is ZERO stress. Do you believe me?

So now you know I’m a little sarcastic from time to time. (insert smily face) It would be nice but we all know that being a homeschool mom comes with its own level of stress.

As a homeschool mama, it is imperative that we find ways to manage out mama stress. We WILL have it so finding useful ways to handle it will give the best results for our family and for us.

Here are some ways that might be helpful in handling that inevitable mama stress.


One way to manage stress is exercise. Exercise is helpful to our physical, overall health but it is also an extraordinary stress reliever. You don’t have to be a marathon runner to use exercise to manage stress. Any exercise can release those endorphins and reliee stress. Walk around the block, do an exercise video, or head to the gym. Any exercise is beneficial!


Many mamas need to talk it out. They need someone to vent to. If you don’t have a husband that you can vent to then find a friend or another homeschool mama to talk about what’s stressing you out. Sometimes just talking about it can decrease stress. If you need a plan of action then you can talk over a plan with a confidant. This in itself can be a stress-reliever.

Many people find that time with their Bible, in prayer, or in private or group devotions can be a huge stress reliver. Take it to God. Leave it with God. If this is helpful to you, be diligent in giving yourself the time you need with God to help manage your stress. Sometimes just “unloading” all your stressors to God can give you the recharge you need. Don’t be afraid to leave it with God.

I’m certain there are a million ways to destress and manager you stress-load. Find what works for you and don’t be afraid to use it.

What is your best de-stressor?


3 Reasons Not to Push School Too Early

imagesWith the influx of early childhood programs, preschoo, and early learning classes, it is easy to get caught up in the early education whirlwind.

However, no matter how good it sounds, there are many good, well-reserached reasons why you don’t want to push school too early.

There are the 3 main reasons we have decided not to push our kids into schooling too early.

#1 – They are only young once. They have all the time in the world for formal school. Why rush it? They are learning every day, absorbing words, vocabulary, nature, people, and manners. Mastering language and developing critical thinking skills. Formal school can wait. Let them play!

#2 We want to instill a love for learning. Making them do formal schooling before they are developmentally ready and mature enough only makes them hate school, which they may or may not come out of. Why take the chance that they don’t come out of it. We want long time life-learners, not reluctant learners.

#3 We don’t need to keep up with the public school. Though there are plenty of studies showing early formal education is unnessary – that learning by play is most important, that especially in the case of bosy, early formal education can cause long term issues, the pbulic sector still wants early child care disguised as early education. I don’t need to keep up with mainstream education. So I can let my kids learn through curiosity and play. Read to them and talk with them. Let them develop their love for learning.

There are porbably a dozen more reasons to not push early formal education. These are just a few that we feel are important.

What reasons do you have to not push early education?
