June iherb haul

As I may have mentioned before, I love iherb, and continue to order from them without any problems or complaints at all. In my experience, products are always packaged well and shipping is fast and convenient!

This month I ordered some new and old-favorite items...

NEW! Bob`s red mill pure baking soda

Recommended for so many things from cleaning to facial care, it is always nice to have baking soda on hand. I am trying this brand for the first time.
OLD FAVORITE! Zarbees natural cough and mucous syrup (nighttime)
