Winter Wellness for families – How we keep our family healthy

by | May 7, 2020 | Health + Wellness, Things we love | 190 comments

Winter Wellness for families is a hot topic every year but this year, it’s more important than ever to make sure we stay healthy and safe. I am not a doctor or any type of healthcare provider. Just a mom that believes in prevention over cure and giving our bodies as much natural support as possible. We prioritize healthy eating and exercise throughout the year but as winter rolls in we take a few extra precautions to keep the sniffles at bay.

5 Ways we are staying healthy this winter!

1. A teaspoon of Rosita Cod Liver oil to start the day

* After the information that came to light after watching the documentary Seaspiracy we have decided to no longer use cod liver oil.

Just A Mamma Rosita Cod Liver Oil Review 7492

I lived with my grandma for a good few years growing up and Cod Liver Oil, daily, was non-negotiable. Now years later I still see the benefits and we are teaching our girls this healthy habit too.

Rosita Cod Liver Oil contains:

  • Vitamin A and
  • Vitamin D
  • a complete range of raw omega fats including omega 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 11 fats.
  • It is particularly rich in the long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) which are also known as essential fats because the body cannot make them from scratch, it makes these fatty acids from omega-3 linolenic acid which must come from food/diet.

However, not all Cod Liver Oils are made the same and to truly benefit you need to make sure you’re taking a good quality oil, sourced, extracted and bottled correctly.

Rosita Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO) is a “living oil” sustainably sourced from wild and abundant Norwegian codfish stock. It is unprocessed, raw fish liver extracted for codfish livers using traditional methods that do not require any heat or mechanical devices. So, the delicate fatty acids found in this nutrient-dense fish oil are retained. The end product is a pure and undisturbed whole food giving us the maximum health benefits provided by nature.

All oils are also thoroughly tested by leading universities and government-linked institutes, giving us peace of mind that Rosita cod liver oils are truly pure. No extras are added in an attempt to alter the nutritional composition in any way. Available in a liquid and soft gel tablets.

TOP TIP: We keep our Rosita Cod Liver Oil in the fridge. Since doing so the girls haven’t complained about the taste and it’s also a little less runny, preventing spills.

2. Boosting our immunity with Young Living Essential Oils

Just A Mama Giveaway 15

Essential Oils have always been apart of our home but it was only after Young Living launched in South Africa that we felt comfortable enough to start using them regularly. This is due to one thing… The Young Living “SEED TO SEAL” guarantee that gives me the reassurance needed that the oils we use as a family are in fact of the highest and purest standard. Completely toxin-free and safe to use. We don’t see EO as a replacement for western medicine or a wonder cure. It’s simply another “natural tool” we use to stay healthy and less dependant on medicines.

Our favourite oils for Winter Wellness include:

  • Lavender – The “Swiss Army Knife” off oils, assisting in various areas of wellness.
  • Lemon – Not just great for us but also our home, as a potent cleaner.
  • Thieves – This combo of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Rosemary and Eucalyptus is great at giving your immunity a boost.
  • Purification – Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Myrtle, Citronella and Lavandin is the perfect air deodoriser and neutraliser. It even keeps the mozzies at bay during summer.
  • RC (Respiratory Care) – Snotty noses, sneezes and sniffles call for this mix of various Eucalyptus types, Myrtle, Black Spruce, Peppermint, Pine, Lavender, Marjoram and Cypress.

Together with organic grapeseed oil, I enjoy making up various rollers that we apply to each other’s feet and spine 5 times a week. Our most used roller is a wellness roller (made with Thieves, Purification and Lemon OR Lavender) and I also keep a breath easy roller (made with RC and Lemon OR Lavender) handy just in case.

During winter our home is also filled with the lingering smell of Purification being diffused into the air.

How To Use Essential Oils With Kids

Botanical Bella Email Signature

Essential Oils are potent and can be harmful when misused. I don’t feel comfortable using certain oils on babies and toddlers and that’s why proper knowledge of oils, before use is important. Annabell, from Botanical Bella is passionate about plant-based wellness and the perfect person to guide you through the safe use of essential oils for the entire family. You could, of course, do your own research too but having an “oily couch” in your corner makes things a whole lot easier.

3. Cutting out sugar as much as possible

Just A Mamma Blog Chew Bars 8467

We keep to a healthy whole food diet but the cold weather definitely has all of us snacking more… Having nutritious options at hand that hits “that sweet spot” without compromising our immune system is very important.

Mrs. Milk recently launched the ChewBar – A superfood protein soft bar. Available in 2 flavours, apple & baobab as well as cocoa & maringa. These bars are delicious!!!!

  • High in fibre

4. Wearing this season’s number 1 accessory… A face mask!

Double Layer Linen Face Masks Made In South Africa

Facemasks have become a MUST and that’s why we’ve decided to invest in reusable masks. We have a few different styles and one of those includes a family set recently ordered from Anneen Henze. The masks are made using 2 layers of soft brushed linen with a vilene woven inner.

  • Available in 3 sizes for adults and kids (6-12 years and 3-5 years)
  • The adult mask comes with a fabric, as well as an elastic tie. And the kid’s masks all use an elastic tie.

These masks are functional and soft but also super stylish in trendy colours such as Nude, Rust, Denim, Blush and Black. We may as well make it fashionable, right?

5. Keeping our Owgels Portable Nebulizer close

Just A Mamma Owgels Portable Nebulizer Review 7503

We have learnt the value of a nebuliser over-and-over again… First when Lia fell sick with RSV, then while being pregnant and flu-ridden, unable to breathe through my nose or use any medication, and again earlier this year while on holiday when Ava fell ill with croup. The doctor only let us leave the hospital early because we had packed our Owgels Portable Nebulizer. A nebuliser has come to our rescue more than once and it’s a MUST HAVE for our family.

Only thing, our girls hate being nebulised! It’s a full-on wrestling match trying to keep the nebuliser plugged into the wall, and the piles from popping off, all while holding a mask over their mouth and nose. And then trying to find my “happy place” amidst the ear-deafening noise!!!!!

That was until now… The Owgels Ultrasonic Portable Nebulizer is a game-changer.

Just A Mamma Owgels Portable Nebulizer Review 7524

  • Compact and portable – This little helper fits perfectly in my hand and weighs less than 230g. Diaper bag, handbag, we even took our to the beach (Keeping to Ava’s nebulising schedule perfectly).
  • Very user-friendly – No pipes or extra attachments. Single-button operation allowing you to choose between three adjustable speeds and an automatic shut down after 10-minutes of inactivity. It’s awesome, especially when I fall asleep during a midnight neb session.
  • Silent – This is my favourite feature and makes this nebuliser much less intimidating for little ones. In fact, I can nebulise the girls in their sleep. No more fighting.

What Is The Best Nebulizer For Kids 1 1

  • More sustainable with low power consumption – The nebuliser works with lithium rechargeable batteries which also makes it ideal for power shortages and traveling. No sitting next to plug outlets or fidgeting with power cables. The rechargeable batteries are charged through a USB port. You can even charge will on the go in your car!

Just A Mamma Owgels Portable Nebulizer Review 7512

And one last, extra addition to our “medicine cabinet”…

Protecting and taking care of our skin, our biggest organ, and 1st line of defense is ALWAYS important and that’s why I was so happy when I came across PATCH bamboo bandages last year.

Just A Mamma Blog Patch Bandages 9396

Our girls have always shown a reaction to conventional plasters. Hours after use I would notice redness around the plaster and if not removed in time an itchy rash would appear. This rash would become sore and most of the time the reaction to the plaster was far more severe and painful than the wound it was meant to protect.

PATCH  bamboo bandages are an incredible, natural alternative made with 100% certified organic bamboo fibre.

The range includes 4 options – Extra natural goodness in the form of coconut oil, aloe vera and activated charcoal has been added for their proven benefits in soothing symptoms and assisting with wound recovery.

The bandages are also 100% biodegradable making them GOOD FOR US and GOOD FOR THE PLANET.

    The 2 things that gets me most excited it the Owgels Nebulizer and the Young Living essential ouls.

    We are big fans of nebulizing but it is always a mission if there is no power(which comes naturally in SA🤪) and it takes up so much space when travelling but with the Owgels this would eliminate all these problems.

    We truly believe in the healing powers of essential oils and love having them in our home.

    • Marietjie Bezuidenhout

      Most excited about the essential oils. We use it daily. So this will be amazing to have. ♡

      • Faheema Hendricks

        What a perfect WINTER WARMER😁…Bella Essential Oils- fantastic and Codliver to boost the whole families immunity

        • Teniele

          Would so love this…… would incredibly help boost our immunity and make winter a little less of a hassle ❤️

      • Natasha Kraljević-Scrimgeour

        I’m actually excited about all the prizes!!! But if I had to pick I’d say the nebulizer as we have a bulky noisy one which our daughter hates. I’d love to be prepared for winter having it. Then the chew bars, we try our best to limit sugar intake and mommy is running out of ideas and once back at work, my time for baking will be less.

  2. Urisha

    Love the fact that these prizes really assist with all that is happening thses days and that they promote natural remedies.

    • Juhane van der Merwe

      I’m speechless this hamper is so amazing I’m so excited about it. You introducing me to so many new exciting products. The owgels nebulizers is what excites me most. I know just how big hustle it is to travel with those big lumpy ones🙈🙈.

        This is such a phenomenal giveaway
        I would really love to win
        I am an Ashmatic and with winter around the corner the Nebuliser and the essential oil would do me really good
        I then have to use my Ashthavent and Budaflem less as what I’ve heard by word of mouth a nebuliser is very effective and and opens and clear the airways

    • Monique Mentoor

      As a mum to 2 toddlers I’d be excited for all the items. However the Young Living essential oils and the ChewBars would be an absolute treat during these very trying times.

      • Salome

        I will love the Owgels Portable Nebulizer… We still have the old school one and makes a terrible sound, Lumé hates it, but to nebulize helps so much!
        Great prizes!!

      • Bruce Jennings

        Awesome prize.
        Would like all, the portable nebulizer will come in handy.

  4. Natasha Botha

    Definitely the Young Living essential oils 🙂 & the Owgels Ultrasonic Portable Nebulizer 100%. Absolutely love the natural oils, & I would love to add more to the ones I have. The sleep well roller would be amazing for my children & the wellness roller would be great during this Corona virus lockdown period.

  5. Jolene

    I cannot choose a specific product as I would be ecstatic to win all of them. I have never tried any of theese brands and would absolutely love too. With two kids this would be a blessing in our home.

  6. Suzanne

    Definitely the mobile nebulizer!!😍😍😍😍😍

    • Debbie Knighton-Fitt

      Oh those essential oils. I finally feel like I have more capacity in my life to learn and enhance my every day with essential oils. And the neb. That looks super cool! X

  7. Nosipho Sombane

    I love all the prizes but am most excited about the great fitting masks, the portable nebulizer and thieves oil

    • Samantha

      I would love to win, because I’m a new mom and I’ll admit – I am struggling 😔 to adjust to my new hormones. I’m getting all this advise on what to use and what not, but in the end I want something natural for myself and baby. His just a young baby and I want to be the best version for him, I’ve been up on your oils and I feel a connection to it – I just do not have the cash right now due to lockdown to buy some and therefore I am praying I get the chance to try some.

      Thank you for always giving Mama’s amazing advice ❤️

  8. Kim Hoffe

    Wow, this all sounds good!
    My children would love the Bamboo bandages and Chew bars the most 🙂
    I guess I’d be most looking forward to the fabric masks – and I would purchase an additional kids’ size one (I have 3 kiddies).

    • Marnitz Malan

      Top product is probably the essential oils.

    • Sofiah

      I would love the oils

      • Tracy-Leigh Govender

        This is absolutely amazing! Especially the humidifier, because getting my toddler, who is constantly on hers during winter, to put on that mask one is nearly impossible! So would love to try this one!
        Also we have been wanting to try oils in our home, and this kit looks amazing

  9. Chantelle Mallett

    Awesome prizes but my favourite would be the Rosita Cod Liver Oil as I know the value of it!! 🤞🏼

    • Chantelle Swanepoel

      I would absolutely love each of these items but the essential oils and the nebulizer are the most appealing! I have my second baby on the way and have treated my first little one as naturally as possible from teething to HFM!! I have been desperate to add my own set of oils to our “medical” kit. Both my little one and I are prone to colds and the nebulizer will be amazing as the one we have is terribly loud and scary.

  10. Lizelle Jansen Van Vuuren

    I just started my essential oil journey, so very excited about that part of the prize. Also with a toddler and a 11 month old exploring, the Patches bandages would we great, because my toddler is rough. The chew bars sounds devine and healthy, breastfeeding still, you meed healthy snacks. In fact everything sounds awesome.

    • Kirsten Baldocchi

      I have the Owgels nebulizer has been on my wishlist to replace our old one. It would give such great peace of mind this winter!

  11. Marizanne

    Everything sounds great, but I am most excited about is the portable nebulizer and thieves oil.

    • Siske

      So much to love… Definitely the thieves essential oil and the nebulizer. I am pretty sure this is a staple of a NICU mom.

  12. Lize-Marie Potgieter

    Hard picking only one item that stands out as ALL of them gets me excited. As a Mom the Owgels nebulizer makes me want to jump up and down especially with winter creeping in. Having the Chew bars on hand to bribe the little one to drink the Cod liver oil will be a bonus without me feeling guilty 🙂
    Lastly, I can’t think of anything better (while being in lock down) than wearing an Anneen mask covered in PATCH while dancing around the house to the smell of essential oils. #wellness

  13. Chris-Marie Duvenhage

    The portable nebuliser would be amazing. We are currently in lockdown on the farm with my family and I am 35 weeks pregnant with my third. I left all my important baby things where we live in Oman in the middle east, and dont have a nebuliser yet anyway. So would love to take all these goodies with me when we return and use it for my children while we are here at home in SA.

    • Chane

      I would love to win this!
      TWO things to be excited about… This is difficult as all the prizes are AMAZING but i would be ecstatic about the neubuliser as ours is NOT portable and makes a lot of noise and then the oils, this mamma would love her some oils man!

  14. Hasina.

    I’d most like to win the portable nebuliser. My eldest daughter is asthmatic and always gets sick in winter. This would really come in handy with her.

    • Chantel Williams

      I love all of it, but if I really must choose 1 . It will be the Owgels Portable Nebulizer will be the ultimate gift. With 3 boys, the travel one is a must. It will be such a blessing

      • Rebecca

        The portable nebulizer – my son has needed one since he was little and our big bulky one has just broken! So this is perfect. My daughter also LOVES bandaids 😉

    • Tidi Phago

      I love the nebulizer, my 3 small kids have inherited my chest struggles and phlegm build up comes up over and over. They struggle to sleep during cold nights is a real nightmare. I never look forward to winter, it scares the mommy life out of me.

  15. Judy van der Schyff

    I’m most excited about the Rosita Cod Liver Oil! Because I am 27 weeks pregnant and haven’t been using any omegas yet. I would love to use Rosita (just out of my budget right now with lockdown finance 🤦🏻‍♀️)

    But really excited about all these awesome winter goodies! Definitely all must haves in a winter keep healthy cupboard

    • Genevieve

      I would definitely love to win the 4 Tubes of PATCH bamboo bandages (one of each type). They are amazing.

  16. Sasha

  30. Kelly Jennings

    What an amazing prize especially now. I need the nebulizer for my daughter that has asthma

  31. Katalin Mercer

    What a lovely assortment of products! Most excited to try the Young Living Essential Oils❣

  32. Carla

    I would be excited to win the oils, cod liver oil, chew bars and bandages. I am a single mom of a 13 year old teenager and we absolutely adore essential oils. However the ones I have are almost finished. We love having a bath with a few drops of essential oils on days when we’ve had a particularly trough day. I’d also like the cod liver oil to boost his immunity for when it’s back to school time. And we’d love to try out the sugar bars. I’d love Tha bandages because I am trying to move towards a more environmentally friendly home and having a son he still at 13 gets scratches here and there especially since he loves skateboarding and these bandages would be perfect.

  33. Elisabeth Meyer

    Most definitely the Owgels Nebulizer. In our house a nebulizer is literally one of our most valued essentials especially with my daughter with lung problems. We have many power outages these days and this little gadget would be a heaven sent for her!!

    • Lelanie Anderson

      Oe ek sien uit na alles!!
      Wou nog altyd daai bamboo bandages probeer het. Die nebulizer lyk amazing, het al my oog op hom vanaf jou review laasjaar. En YL EO altyd welkom!! En natuurlik lyk die chewbars amazing! Enige iets Anneen Henze wil ek verseker he. Sal ook graag die Rosita cod liver oil brand wil probeer. Hoop ek is lucky!!xxx

  34. Lauren Hogarty

    What a great read! And prizes! I would love to win the oils as I’m new to the oil world and would love these to start our health journey with.

    • Salochana Naidoo

      I’m most excited to win the PATCH bamboo bandaged … with 3 little boys, there’s always a need for these.

  35. Jemma Biggins

    Awesome Give-Away!! Would love to win the Owgels Nebulizer our kids are traumatized from our current one and the bamboo bandages our littlest human inherited my sensitive skin and refuses to use regular plasters as our skin blisters under them and when you remove the plaster it takes the blistered skin with it 😣

  36. Willecia Vermaak

    We definitely use our nebuliser every year for a good stretch and having a new baby the Owgels portable, more quiet version will be a big plus. Also the Patch Bamboo plasters! A mom always needs these. And I’ve been meaning to try the Chewbars for my toddler. These would all definitely warm our winter!

    • Trudy-Jo Daniels

      This is such an amazing prize. I cant pick just 1 item🥴 I love the essential oils since its got benefits for the whole family, not just my little girl… But im also impressed by the Patch range, as my daughter is fearless in her exploration of the world, but at 16 months is still a hazard to herself🤭 And finally the face mask-these just make practical sense.

    • Marnitz

      The nebulizer would be such a great prize to win. Our twins have a lung disorder and this is a must have for them. Fingers crossed

  37. Emily Farrer

    This is such a fantastic prize! I’ve been reading so much about essential oils lately and all their benefits, but they are quite pricey and so haven’t been able to purchase as yet. So I think this would be what I would be most excited to win and start using at home with my family, especially as we heading into winter, so they can aid in our health, naturally!

  38. Tendani Nancy Lidovho

    This is an awesome giveaway i would like to win this giveaway

  39. Tasneem Maganlal

    As a mum of two preemies I would love to win the Owgels Portable Nebulizer the most. My 1 year old son had RSV when he just came out of NICU we had to go back to hospital because he picked up RSV. My 4 year old is also prone to getting sick and we use the nebulizer every time as it’s the one thing that always works. A portable one would be absolutely amazing

  52. Sarah

    I’m super excited for the nebulizer and the chew bars. I’ve yet to come across a nebulizer that doesn’t scare my son or not sound like an airplane taking off and my son has a lot of allergies to it’s very difficult to find a healthy, delicious on the go snack for him.

  53. Stephanie Morton

    What an awesome variety of products 😍 The Owlgels ultrasonic portable nebulizer is definitely top of my want list.

  54. Sumaya

    PATCH Bandages, The Nebulizer and The Face Masks. Fantastic Giveaway!

    The Owlgels nebulizer would be my top choice but all the products are great.

  56. Karia

    I just love this giveaway!!! I am the most excited about the Owlgels ultrasonic portable nebulizer and the essential oil kit. I also react to plasters and would love to give the bamboo one’s a try. The sugarfree snacks is definitely a big treat!! This giveaway get me so excited and will use all these products everyday!

  57. Janine Bisschoff

    What an amazing prize to win.
    I’ve been eyeing that kegels nebulizer since the first time you’ve talked about it. Those bamboo bandages would be perfek for my 3 and 1 year old. They are busy bees and an accident happens quickly!

    I’ve also been keen on the oil “thing”. Its just a bit to expensive… but I’m very curious to try that also!

    • Janine

      Damn autocorrect!
      I meant the owgels nebulizer.

  58. Karien Coetzer

    I would love to win everything is so awesome and necessary for winter! But I would especially love the PATCH bamboo bandages as my son and I are allergic to conventional plasters!

  59. Grace

    The young living oils and definitely the Rosita cod liver oil!!!!

  60. Shaaista Mahomed

    Oh my word… what an awesome giveaway.. for me I’m most excited about the owgels neubilizer . I have been after one of these from your first review 😍😍😍

  61. Christine

    Oh wow! What a stunning giveaway😍 I especially like the Owgels Nebulizer! Thanks Justamamma for the giveaways xx

  62. Leandra Krige

    This whole giveaway reminds me of my son, Hunter. The Owgels Ultrasonic Portable Nebuliser is definitely on top of my list, when Hunter gets sick we always have to nebulize him. This will help make life so much easier. He will also go crazy for the Patch Bamboo plasters. I have kot met a child who loves a aster as much as Hunter!!

  63. Roxanne

    Wow… What an amazing giveaway. It’s so hard to choose one favorite product. These all look so amazing. The Owgels Ultrasonic Portable Nebuliser might just win as my top pick though, only cause I have a daughter with lung issues so a nebuliser is an essential in our house hold. She can have a breathing laps at anytime so a portable one would be absolutely amazing

  64. Sarah

    I would be most excited about the chew bars, anything to get my kids eating healthy snacks. And those plasters are just so awesome 👏🏻


    The Owgels Ultrasonic Portable Nebuliser… Would come in do handy as my Don is asthmatic



  67. Kim Muller

    I would love to win the nebulizer. My kids always get chest infections during winter and this would be amazing help.

  68. Deruschka govender

    Most definitely the essential oils,natural healthy living for my family.These oils and rollers will be the perfect for winter especially with everything that’s going on we could do with some wellness and sleep support.
    Amazing giveaway,thank you ❤️❤️❤️

  69. Tanya M

    I am most excited to win the owgels nebulizer. I watched your video review and at that time i had recently been in hospital with my then 7 month old. She had RSV and we had to stay in the hospital for 3 days till her chest was better. Nebulizer sessions every 6 hours, of which every 12 was with some cortisone and the others just with the normal chest meds. It was afwul, loud and it was basically a crying session. I did some research after the video and I’m inlove with all the features. Chargeable. Quiet. Portable. Game changer! She’s 11 months old and God willing we won’t need it often but based on history and subsequent chest issues we’ll likely need to use a neb again. This one would also be so much easier for her gran to use when I’m back at work and life gets back to normal.

  70. Manogaree Govender

    Would love the range of patch Bamboo plasters. It’s the best. U have a phenomenal giveaway. Everything is awesome, love the facemasks, its super awesome.

  71. Sanelisiwe Duze

    Super excited about the Nebulizer with a 9 month old baby the stuffy nose can be a problem especially when she gets flu so this will really help us get through rough nights

  72. Melinda

    I’m totally in love with Young Living, and I started using the plasters a few months ago since my skin reacts to conventional plasters. 😁

  73. Lyn

    Hi I am so keen to try Patch and Rosita 😊

  74. Kayla

    A product I am 100% excited about is the PATCH bamboo bandage. As a student teacher, it is very important to me to keep all the kiddies safe, happy and healthy. We all know that kiddos get cuts and scratched while playing. These will make it a lot safer and more eco-friendly to take care of them (when they are back at school). They may not be my biological children, but they do mean the world to me.

  75. mia van niekerk

    THE MIRACULOUS SAMUEL AND BENJAMIN…………………. I am a proud gran of twin boys, turning one year on the 30 th of May……………….. Hope you have got time to read their story, I will try to keep it short. They are still in the NICU, Panorama Med. Cape Town, since birth. Born at 26 weeks, with premature lung disease and PIG, With their first sonar, already , the doctors painted a dim picture and since birth the waters were dark and stormy. They were so fragile, the parents were only allowed to hold them after three months. I can write a book about the past year’s trails and tribulations ………………. but those are all on the back ground now. …….. OUR BOYS WILL BE HOME SOON, AFTER A YEAR!!!!! JUBILATION!!!!!! They are going to be in hospital for their first birthday, but the light is on, at the end of the tunnel. I will not tell this story without pride for their patents and praise and thanks to our Lord Jesus. I cannot choose a gift for them, as they will be grateful for any of the awesome products, but they are going to need nebulizers at home. Anything will be appreciated and welcome.

  76. Tanya

    would love to win this competition. Always been interested in oils. And as i said on my Facebook post – The chewbars look good. A nebulizer would also be awesome. I have three girls so always one of them getting sick or hurting themselves. Can’t wait. Thank you

  77. Jemma

    I would love to win! Everything looks amazing ! I would be most excited to win the Owgels Portable Nebulizer, it would be life changing.

  78. Candice

    Oh my goodness I’d be excited about everything! Wining this prize would be amazing! I’d be most excited to try the owgel nebulizer as I’ve heard great things and I actually don’t own one yet and my little
    Guy is already two and a half!

  79. Diana Boshoff

    The chew bars because I have four kids and they’re eating me out of house and home! And also Rosita, to keep them all healthy! Such a great giveaway!

  80. Tamaryn

    Such a great giveaway, with great local brands!

  81. Amy Blu Breytenbach

    This entire giveaway is super exciting! But for our family, specifically our son, the nebulizer and essential oils would be amazing! Our son is asthmatic; we have a nebulizer, but it’s not load shedding friendly and makes a hell of a noise. I have also been looking into essential oils as an alternative to over the counter meds, or at least a preventative measure. Would love to win this!

  82. Layle Trollip

    We would love to win the Owlgel nebulizer. Nothing like a sick kid in the middle of the night and you have to haul out the clunky nebulizer.
    The whole prize looks amazing!

  83. Candice Vincent

    What an amazing hamper. I would be most excited for the Cod Liver Oil and the Essential Oils… I love Essential Oils and would love to try these.

  84. Kristi-lee Fraser

    I know we supposed to pick something in this prize that we were most excited about but I just can’t, it’s all right up my alley. Love everything about it, the oils, nebulizer, patch plasters, yummy things, everything. Holding thumbs, crossing fingers, four leaf clover, lucky socks.

  85. Lena

    I meant to say the Patch plasters 🙆… On 10th week of lockdown and my brain is fried!

  86. Marie

    Owgels nebulizer definitely and oils

  87. Karen Ratshivhombela

    Most excited for the owgel nebulizer. Think this is such a must for this season

  88. Charne Parsons

    It would definitely be the essential oils. The RC one to be exact as it would help tremendously with the sniffles. As a mom of a 2 year old and who also suffers from sinus and mild colds, I take little to no medication as I’m still breastfeeding. This would definitely be a game changer for me when it comes to my health.

  89. Cheri Kok

    Excited for ALL the excellent prizes, but if I really have to choose one, it would be the essential living oils – it fascinates me sssooo much these little bottles of HUGE power❤️❤️❤️

  90. Candice Conyers

    As a family of asthmatics, we are most excited to win the Owgels portable ultrasonic nebulizer. This would be an absolute game changer for my family! 💜

  91. luzaan nel

    wow dont know where to begin but the one i would have to say the owgel nebulizer

  92. Tarryn Salkinder

    All the prizes are absolutely incredible! I would particularly love to win the Owgels portable Nebulizer. It’s such an essential item to have in the home and we don’t have one. I have 2 young kiddies and previously needed to borrow in a panic when we needed to nebulize. With winter here it’s even that more important to own one. The fact that it’s portable is so nifty!

  93. Tamsyn

    Patches!! The little is on the move and we have started getting scratches to deal with. Living on a farm means dealing with our own waste, and chucking out plastic plasters that dont burn is something I would love to never do again!

  94. Robyn bosman

    What an awesome prize just before winter. Would love to try the young living essential oils

    • Kathryn Poole

      Amazing prizes! I would love to win then all but the most exciting for me is the portable nebuliser and essential oils.

  95. Sharon de Villiers

    I’m really excited about the essential oils and the nebuliser. I end up in a nebuliser every winter without fail and my grandchildren seem to have inherited that from me so this would be super handy

  96. Leana Jordaan

    Oh my goodness thieves oil! A friend of mine in the States swears by the stuff and sent me a bottle once, and I’m converted! I had no idea it was available in SA!

    My mom’s just been diagnosed with lymphoma which has attacked her immune system. While this has been devastating news, we are called to action and taking next level precautions this winter to protect not only ourselves, but especially her. This kit would give our stay-healthy mission such a boost!

  97. Clare Nichols

    Being ridiculously clumsy I have always wanted to try the Patch plasters. Whether it is burning myself in the kitchen or being torn to shreds by our foster kitten, there is always a wound needing tending.

  98. Leatitia du Toit

    I would love to try the bamboo strips

  99. Anjé Koekemoer

    I’m so excited about this giveaway. Absolutely all the amazing products made me want to enter. If I have to choose, I’d choose the Owgel Nebuliser (I’m a soon to br first time Mommy and I believe this will become my best friend as my baby girl is a winter’s baby) and for ME, the Young Living Essential Oil. I’m a big believe of the magic that lies in essential oil and I’m so excited to try it.

  100. Tarryn Vincent

    Oh my goodness! How incredible! What a brilliant competition! I must say, the Nebulizer got me very excited 😂 would be an absolute life saver this winter for our little girl 🥰

  101. Carri Page

    What an amazing prize !!! Would love and be so excited with all of them, but if I had to choose one it would be the essential oils – been dying to try it out !

  102. Nita Watson

    This is one amazing hamper!!! Most excited about the rosita cod liver oil and the essential oil!!! Just love everything!!!

  103. Helen

    Ermmm! Everything!! I’m a big fan of essential oils already, and haven’t found a nebuliser that my child would use yet – so excited for this one!
    Also all for anything natural and sugar free 👌🏽👌🏽

  104. Ntombi Lushaba

    An amazing giveaway but the nebuliser is my favourite!!

  105. emlyn thomas

    The greatest wealth is health

  106. Cara Bosch

    I’m excited to win the Rosita Cod Liver oil

  107. Karen Salhab

    Would love this hamper, especially the essential oils. A couple I’ve never tried before and think would be very useful.

  108. Angelique

    The things that get me excited is the owgel nebulizer and the essential oils. Crossing my fingers for this giveaway.

    Thank you for this amazing write up

  109. Ameerah hendricks

    Please I need this for my girls. The oils and the codliver especially. I bought the codliver beginning of month after your post but it cost a pretty penny and lasts 1month, cant afford again. I believe in it though

  110. Mary-Ann

    Love this. So perfect for survival RIGHT NOW, my boy keeps getting “owies” and would love to try these pledge plasters ➕

  111. Melissa

    What an amazing giveaway! I’d definitely love to win the Owgels portable nebulizer! My son suffers from a nasal drip which sends him into a coughing fit sometimes in the early hours of the morning. The Owgels Nebulizer would be sooo convenient for him!

  112. Danita

    WOW WOW WOW this would be the best prize ever to win!!!! Need all of this in my life for my little ones !! This is the BEST prize ever

  113. Jenna

    Such a great prize! I would really love that Nebulizer! Xxx 🙂

  114. Shae Schwenk

    Definitely most excited for the Young Living Essential Oils to add to my collection!

  115. Tasneem Martin

    Definitely the Owgels ultrasonic Portable Nebulizer! As a newly diagnosed asthmatic and with a 14 month old prone to bouts of bronchiolitis, this is an absolute essential for our home! Holding thumbs and saying prayers

  116. Roxette Malala

    Definitely the Nebuliser. We’ve had to Nebulize my 3 year old son a lot…I’m ashmatic and praying he’s not. I love the fact that it’s portable, also looks less noisy then a lot of the ones one the market. But I mean everything here is literally everything I want I promise you.

  117. Karla Sik

    As a busy mom of 3 kids this prize ticks so many boxes. A nebulizer has been a life safer to us in so many occasions! To have a portable one will make the worlds difference. The bamboo plasters make me very excited.
    Will hold thumbs!!

  118. Bonita Birch

    I would love the young essential oil range!

  119. Lucy Rodakis

    Oh wow what a prize to be won! I have a almost 5 year (June 25th) and a 16 month baby. And I just love the essential oils and that nebuliser would be magic in my home!!

  120. Carmen Terblanche

    I would love the young essentials oils! I have just ordered a feather diffuser and cannot wait to try out all the oils!!

  121. Leanne Bartleman

    I would love the nebulizer, with 3 boys with weak lungs this is a must especially during winter and the essential oil range 🙂

  122. Simonete

    All of the prizes would be a honor to win! Could make use of all of them, but as an asthma and Righr Middle Lobe syndrome patient, I’m especially excited about the 2 adult and 2 kids linen face masks by local designer Anneen Henze, the Young Living Essential oils from Botanical Bella which includes all the favourite oils (Thieves, Purification, Lemon, Lavender, and R.C) plus everything needed to make my own Wellness Roller, Breathe Roller and Sleep Well Roller, as well as an Owgels Ultrasonic Portable Nebulizer – something used all the time in our house and as a result does not have a long life span! The Patch bamboo bandages will be an awesome addition for the falls and scratches of the little ones, as well as for the sores as a result of the winter hands and all the washing!

  123. Magda

    Beslis die Nebulizer
    Ek moes hoeka die week ALWEER n rondte polmicort en dulin doen, my oudste Thomas doen heel ok met hom, maar my jongste Noah wat ook moes Neb, oe ek sukkel. Ek al
    probeer die “raasdeel” van die nebuliser toe pak met kussings, maar die klank wat die masjien maak om die stoom vry te laat pla ook maar, so ek doen dit maar sonder die masker net na aan my, geen idee of hy ooit werklik inkry wat hy moet nie

    En die Thieves essential olie. Oe oe dit ruik ONGELOOFLIK lekker!!!!

  124. Mariette

    Met n Klein mensie in die huis en n mamma met sinus Kan ons nie sonder ons Nebuliser. Die portable owlgels Sal Reguit uit die Hemel wees. Geen Meer lekke de pypies en drade en geraas wat Klein mensies bang maak.

  125. Alana Allen

    Would absolutely love to win this, especially the nebulizer. It’s an amazing product to have with 3 little girls.

  126. Stephanie

    I would love to better understand the role essential oils can play in building immunity.
    I have 3 tiny humans to winter proof and the weather today makes me nervous 🙃

  127. Zanie Prinsloo

    Wow this is an amazing give away. Everything is really amazing, but the two things that caught my eyes were the nebulizer and the chew bars.

  128. Liezel

    Would especially love the nebulizer!!

  129. Reshma

    I would love to win the young living essential oil kit. I’m currently learning about essential oils and loving the information. Winning this will help me on my journey to incorporate essential oils in my life.

  130. Ammelia

    Wow! All the products up for grabs are fantastic 😍 Young Living Essential Oils are amazing. I’ve never tasted the Cod Liver but the benefits of using it, is great.

  131. Tammy Teague

    What an amazing giveaway! 😍 would absolutely love the Patch plasters because my girls get a reaction from ordinary ones!

  132. Veenasha Padayachee

    This is such an awesome giveaway! I would really love the essential oils and the nebulizer. I have twin girls and this compact nebulizer will be amazing to travel with.

  133. Tamarin

    First thing that caught my eye was that everything is Local!! I love supporting local businesses. I would also live to try the essential oils.

  134. Teresa Calvario

    The nebuliser looks fantastic and would be a great help especially moving into winter ♥️ But all products look amazing

  135. Elizabeth

    All the products are AMAZING! Didn’t even know about these products until now! I am the most excited about the Owgels Portable Nebulizer as you can take it with you wherever you go.

  136. Tammy van Rooyen

    I’m excited by everything!! Like the combination of what you can win!! Thanks

  137. Mari Grobler

    Oooo dit is n “amazing” prys! Die pleisters maak my baie opgewonde 😆 (dalk is dit hoekom my kinders so baie van pleisters hou 😬).
    En natuurlik die Owgels. Ons het nog so ou lomp een wat ek 8jaar terug vir my oudste gekoop het 🥴
    En laastens… die aroma olies! Ek het Aromaterapie gestudeer, so ek is natuurlik altyd n “fan”!
    Vriendelike Groete

  138. Santi

    Oooo AL of the give aways sounds amazing all new to me so would love love to try them out especially with winter here. Holding thumbs. Love your posts xx

  139. Sunande Gerber

    Being pregnant while in Lockdown is definitely not what I thought my first pregnancy will be like.
    No Baby shower, no maternity shoot, not being able to show my tummy to my family (in another province), no exciting baby Expo’s to go to.
    Having to buy everything online and not getting to test the product out. And so much more that LD has took from FTMs.
    I would LOVE to win the Owgels Nebulizer, looks like such an amazing product with a great design. Definitely a new born essential!

  140. Linzy Kastis

    The nebulizer!! We believe it is a miracle cure and it’s always our first go to.. and to have one on the go would be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G 👍🏻👍🏻👌🏻❤️❤️❤️
