Our goodie bags and vendors are always amazing. Imagine going home with all kinds of new things to try and meeting some of the people behind the products to answer your questions. I’m very picky about who and what we have at our events – I don’t take just anyone! Check out this year’s round up and you’ll see why everyone that comes to a retreat/bootcamp brings an extra empty suitcase!
Joan Schrader made the trip to BBC again with all kinds of great magnesium products. Along with a lovely sampler pack in our goodie bags, she also had some very exciting new products for us to try in her booth. Check out Joan’s web site for all kinds of in-depth information at www.health-and-wisdom.com
You know T-Tapp Trainer Renee McLaughlin– she’s got her finger on the pulse of all kinds of neat stuff. Renee had a booth with samples of Boresha’s Skinny Coffee, Young Living Oils (the Baranoff Ballroom smelled heavenly!), and handmade jewelry by her mom Harlan who is also featured in our public broadcasting show! Contact Renee for more info! www.healthcoachforsuccess.com/
For those of you who know T-Tapp Trainer Jane Heinrichs, you’ll be astounded at how well she’s doing and how fit she is! Jane has discovered a new form of diatomaceous earth that is like baby powder. We’ve dubbed it Diva Dirt and Jane gave everyone a generous sample to try. If you haven’t read about DE, check out our thread on the forums (http://forum.t-tapp.com/showthread.p...t=diatomaceous ) – lots of great info, just what you would expect from T-Tappers! www.alivingearth.com
Kim Bright, one of our keynote speakers, brought Sweet Wheat (http://www.brightcorenutrition.com/#4 ) to our vendor marketplace and generously gave everyone a full 30-day supply to try. Oh my, that gorgeous green of Kim’s Sweet Wheat is amazing (it’s processed the same way as our Premium Blended Alfalfa!) and her love and intention radiates from her product!
We love Reed Myles and his wonderful hands. Reed brought his massage chair and samples for everyone of CryptoGel. Those who were lucky enough to get a foot massage appointment with Reed walked around with heavenly smiles on their faces! You can call Reed directly to order the gel or try out those cool BodyPure detox footpads. (727) 446-5116.
Everyone wants to know about those crazy shoes they see me wear – they’re called Chung Shi’s. Lauretta Fernandez from FootSolutions http://www.footsolutions.com/largo brings a wide selection of shoes out for everyone to try and helps people address any structural foot issues they have. Lauretta has also become a T-Tapper! Don’t try Basic Plus in Chung Shi’s, but to fit fitness into your day, these are the shoes that will give you a workout SAFELY unlike some of the other rocker shoes and negative heel products in the marketplace.
This year Hyland’s donated a full-size Arnica 30x homeopathic remedy for everyone. www.hylands.com/products/arnica.php After a long workout, Arnica is a great way to keep muscle recovery pain at bay for those who overworked (my Super OverTappers) and it also works great if you bump into doorknobs, counters, and tables.
Barlean’s supported us again this year with all kinds of delicious products - -we had Swirl samples (fish oils in yummy flavors and their special blend for women in Chocolate Raspberry – Lauren’s FAV!) and their greens to try in Berry flavor – yum! As always, I’m so grateful to Barlean’s for their whole-hearted support of T-Tapp. www.barleans.com
Barney Butter had a sample of delicious Almond Butter for everyone! If you haven’t tried Barney Butter, you’re going to love it – it’s gluten-free, all-natural, and almonds are actually a seed vs. a nut so if you have a nut allergy you might do just fine with almonds. www.barneybutter.com/
The perfect complement to that Barney Butter was the super yummy chocolate from T-Tapp Trainer Sue Fetzner. Sue’s chocolate is made with xylitol so it’s actually good sugar to go with a fine grade, healthful chocolate – those almost didn’t make it into the goodie bags I liked them so much. Email Sue (firstname.lastname@example.org )if you want to buy some.
Emerita is a company dedicated to making natural, clean, chemical-free products for women’s health. They have supported us over the last few years and this year they provided us with Menstrual Cramp Cream, Day & Night Cream, and a Facial Cleanser. This is a great line of products for women including everyone’s favorite – Pro-Gest natural progesterone cream. www.emerita.com
Ever wish you could add a dash of lemon or lime to something, but don’t have any citrus fruit in your handbag? True Lemon and True Lime are great for solving the problem! These little packets have dehydrated and crystalized lemon or lime juice in them – and nothing else! Get rid of that chemical-laden Crystal Light stuff and use these!!!!!! http://www.truelemonstore.com/?trk_s...FQ2R7Qod2gldgg
Now if you do have a fruit with a peel with you, then Pat Brown had a handy Pampered Chef Citrus Peeler http://pamperedchef.biz/luckychefpat for you in our goodie bags. I love Pampered Chef’s high quality products for the kitchen. Their pizza stones are wonderful! But it’s a bit easier to keep the citrus peeler with you – lol!
Univera's focus is on helping to repair the excessive damage all the things we enjoy in life cause on a cellular level. Prevent degenerative effects with Xtra Advanced Cell Renewal for an increased sense of energy and vitality! Go to wwwbodybyjeanne.com.
Have you heard about how amazing Chia is? Long time T-Tapper Theresa Broughton started her own company recently called ChiaBia – and boy is it good! Theresa made chia smoothie drinks and chia muffins for us and we were all scooping them up as fast as she could make them. YUMMY!! Contact Theresa to try ChiaBia at email@example.com.
Everyone kept sticking their noses into their goodie bags and wondering what that intoxicating smell was. Guess what -- Blueberry Tea from Tea Time Garden was the culprit and it smells sooooo good and tastes even better! A simple blend of Japanese and Chinese green tea, cornflower petals, and blueberry, our little samples of loose leaf tea were wonderful and green tea has bonus slimming effects! www.teatimegarden.com
Who knew a lollipop could help you lose weight?! Long time T-Tapper Cathy Bradshaw has Slender Pop lollipops available in four flavors. Made with xylitol as the sweetner (so it’s actually good for your teeth!) and irvingnia, a new herb from Africa that stops feeling of hunger and improves carbohydrate utilization; these lollipops taste really good and even if you chew up em up after a few licks, they’ll still stop the hunger pangs. I love these! https://gethealthynow.mysisel.com/en...categoryId=376
If you’ve got more hair length than me, then check out the beautiful hair accessories at Lila Rose. They’ve called their products Hairlooms and they are gorgeous! Makes me wish I had long hair for a minute! http://www.lillarose.biz/sweethairlooms
Beauty By God is Shelly Ballestero’s luscious line of all natural body and skin care. This year we had either lip gloss or heel balm in each goodie bag. The lip balm makes your lips silky and yummy to smooch and the foot balm turns around dry, cracked heels overnight! Order directly from Shelly at www.beautybygod.com
Aromatherapy is such a powerful tool but I never realized how much it could help achy, sore muscles until we found Muscle Mist! http://www.aromasensations.com/muscle_mist.htm We all smell very spa-like during our retreats but our Muscle Mist helps relieve any kind of soreness or cramping. This is a great, natural alternative to products like Ben Gay.
PAV was a find a few years back by T-Tapper Kate Young. This is the perfect product to keep in your purse or backpack! Based on pine sap, it’s antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiviral; so, if you get tick bites or brush cuts like I do when I’m working out at WaterMark, this stuff is awesome! www.natr-health.com
I added two of my favorite products to the bags this year too. I have been a long-time supporter of Peter Gilliam’s Natural Calm which is an effervescent magnesium-based product you can add to warm or cold water. Magnesium is such a great stress tamer and Natural Calm is a great way to get a bit more of it in your system. I also included a sample of Shaklee’s Enfuselle E and C. This is one of my favorite night time skincare products for wrinkle repair and sun damage. It’s great to wake up looking younger than when you went to sleep! You can find both products in our store.
Joyful Noise Goat’s Milk Soaps http://joyfulnoisegoats.webs.com/ are so nice! In the past we’ve had different fragrances, but this year it was all about fragrance-free. These soaps are wonderful feeling and the love that goes into making them makes them all that much better! All of the goats at Joyful Noise have names and lots of love!
