Have you heard ofÂ MOBU Herbals?
It is a line of balms and lotions that offer effective supplementary and alternative medicinal to those suffering from an illness as well as those wishing to protect and improve their health. The creator Janell Cole, a woman with several degrees from a few universities, developed the line of products in response to the needs she encountered in her patients and the feeling that more could have been done in her father’s treatment of prostate cancer. You can read more of her storyÂ here.
All of the balms and lotions are meant to go on your skin to get the fastest relief while bypassing your digestive tract. This means they will go into your bloodstream faster than most OTCs and prescription medications which in return provides faster relief and less side effects.Â The balm is the most concentrated; therefore, it takes less. If the problem is severe then you should use a balm. The lotions are creamier which makes it easier to apply and are best for larger areas.

So I received three products for review per my request! I got the Vitality Lotion for myself, the P.M. Pain Balm for my hard working boyfriend, and the E-Z Lax for my 3 month old baby since it is safe for all ages!
First I will start with my love, the Vitality Lotion lol! I say this because this product has worked wonders for me but before I get into all of that let me explain what it is. The Vitality Lotion is a quick energy booster that activates a sluggish immune system, energizes adrenal, thyroid, and endocrine functions, regulatesÂ menses, strengthens hair and nail growth, and helps relieve chronic fatigue syndrome. Do you see why this has been a miracle for me?! You apply to the crown of head, neck, throat, chest, abdomen, wrists, inner thighs, or arms and you do not, I repeat, YOU DO NOT apply close to bedtime or you will be up writing on your blog in the middle of the night like I am doing lol! I requested this product specifically because I have just recently had a baby in December so I feel like even when I do get any sleep my life is still going in slow motion and the thought of even making dinner anymore terrifies me because I am so fatigued and don’t feel like doing anything put popping a Lean Cuisine in the microwave! I am so pleasantly pleased with the outcome of this product, with just the first day of use, that my mind is completely blown because I was honestly skeptical if it would actually work. Coffee was just not cutting it for me anymore and I am so happy I found this so I could cut back on my new found caffeine diet! Like I stated above all ingredients are 100% natural and mostly organic and if you would like a list of all ingredients in this product or more details visit here. I believe the product smells like a lemon grass scent but it does not contain lemon grass. I think it’s the combination of the fennel, dandelion, and rose hips that give it that scent but I am not really sure because there are several more ingredients. The fact that you apply the product in such small increments on your body makes the 4 oz bottle last a lot longer so the $20 it costs for it is more than reasonable and a great value. I have used it every day for a week and have barely put a small dent in it!
Next is the P.M. Pain Balm that I requested specifically for my boyfriend. He works 40 hours or more a week for Caterpillar and is always on his feet in steel toe boots! The fact that he comes home sore every day is an understatement and sometimes his back is bothering him so much it’s hard for him to fall asleep or stay asleep. P.M. Pain Balm is a natural muscle relaxant and is effective at soothing nighttime relief for aches and pains and can help with insomnia. There is a warning for the product that states do not operate any heavy machinery after applying because it may cause drowsiness and do not mix with alcohol. I think this a pretty accurate statement since it pretty much made my boyfriend snore all night in my ear lol! My boyfriend is a typical male who doesn’t believe in taking any medicines unless he’s forced to so he honestly thought this was a bunch of bologna until he tried it! You can apply it anywhere on the body that hurts so we applied it to his back and at first he said is it suppose to burn which he later explained was more of a tingling sensation to him and dissipated pretty quickly. Not every one might get this reaction because sometimes he just reacts to certain lotions differently. He gets this same effect from the Hempz lotions as well. There was also a strong herbal odor to it as well when we first applied it but went away after a few minutes of rubbing it in. I liked the smell he didn’t…again it is preference thing! The product did it’s job and he woke up the next day to get ready for work making all kinds of racket early in the morning because he felt so good and like he got better sleep!

Last but not least, we have the E-Z Lax Balm. I used this on my 3 month old daughter since it said it could be used on all ages and she is currently battling a lot of constipation issues due to me weaning her off the breast and trying to find the right formula for her. The fussiness from gas is real with this one lol! Anyways, the product claims it is an extraordinaryÂ remedy for constipationÂ and helps facilitate easy, complete bowel movements. Like I mentioned it relieves gas and provides fast relief for children and the elderly who are bedridden or less active. It is non invasive and effective. It says to apply to the belly or around the belly button generously and apply up to 2 to 3 times a day until relief is achieved. I applied a small amount only once around my daughter’s belly button at first to see if she would have a negative reaction since she is a baby. I did this in the morning hoping it would work during the day but nothing really happened besides she didn’t fuss all day from gas. That same night she still hadn’t pooped in several days so I applied a little more than I did earlier in the morning and lo and behold she pooped with ease around midnight! It took about a day but it worked and there has been no negative side effects thus far! For more details on product and ingredients clickÂ here.
