Hi Elegant Readers,
I recently dealt with a hoarse and very sore throat over the holidays. It proved to be a good opportunity for me to sample Go Gargle! This Effervescent Salt solution is a great product to discuss on Bubbling With Elegance and Grace.
To learn about GoGargle!, check out the company’s website by clicking here. GoGargle! was named the Best New Product at the 2014 ECRM Cough Cold, Analgesics and Allergy convention.
The Go Gargle! product that I received contained 10 tablets and claims to soothe and moisturize dry and irritated throats.
Information from the box:
— Contains a proprietary blend of Honey, Chamomile and other ingredients listed below. Sodium Chloride, Citric acid, Sorbitol, Potassium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Magnesium, Natural Flavor, Sodium Carbonate, Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, Chamomile, Honey, Wheat Germ Oil, Sinc Sulfate, and Stevia Leaf extract.
— Convenient, easy to use
– Delicious, mint flavor
– Great for home, work or travel
– Soothes throats that are dry due to air pollution, smoke and everyday life
The first step is to drop 1 tablet into a half grass of warm water.
Let dissolve until fizzing stops.
I swished the solution around in my mouth and gargled in back of my throat for 15-30 seconds. Then I spit out the solution because the directions indicate that you are not suppose to swallow the liquid. I repeated the steps until I used all the liquid.
JT gargling with GoGargle!
The solution had a pleasant honey taste. My throat felt like it had a coating of moisture like someone was giving you a massage.
GoGargle! has a pleasant experience. It did not leave a bitter taste in my mouth. Go Gargle! says that the gargling may be repeated throughout the day as necessary. When I finished gargling, I could tell that my throat felt coated and did not feel as raw as before.
Warning description on the Go Gargle! bottle:
Severe or persistent sore throat or sore throat accompanied by high fever, headache, nausea, and vomiting may be serious. Consult physician promptly. Not intended for children under 3 years old. Sealed with a tamper evident cap for your protection. Store in a cool, dry place.
Please make sure that if you try this product that YOU DO NOT SWALLOW. One of the ingredients is sorbitol which is a sugar substitute that can have laxative qualities.
Please check with your doctor if you think you have in allergies to the ingredients or have questions. Otherwise, it made my throat feel good with the honey and chamomile ingredients. I recommend it to anyone dealing a sore throat who is looking temporary relief.
Hi Elegant Readers,
New Year New You! The year of the supernatural!
My church is doing a 21-day fast in January. My hubby and I decided that we would do a Daniel Fast. One week down and we are now starting the second week. As a congregation, we can fast whatever the Lord leads us, to fast something that has a significant meaning to us. Kristin Feola, author of The Ultimate Daniel Fast, spoke at church about the Daniel Fast and what to expect.
Kirsten’s book includes a daily devotions for each of the 21 days; and healthy recipes to guide you.
Fasting is a great way to develop a deeper relationship with God and to gain divine insight and wisdom.

At first, I did not know what to think about the Daniel Fast because the main foods to eat are fruits and vegetables. As part of this fast, some things you give up are dairy, yeast, sugar, refined and processed food, deep fried foods, solid fats, beverages like alcohol, energy drinks, etc. Giving up these foods may be a challenge for some people; but that is the point of a fast. You have to give up something in order to draw closer to God.
The fun part of the Daniel Fast is that you can eat fruit, whole grains, nuts and seeds, unleavened bread, Legumes, olive oil, canola oil, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, grapes oil, peanut oil, sesame oil, distilled water, filtered water, spring water as well as herbs, spices, salt, pepper, seasonings, soy products and tofu.
Today we had a Peach-Mango-Strawberry-Peanut Butter-Flaxseed-Chia Seed-Coconut water smoothie. It was good with all those flavors blending together.
The Ninja makes a scrumptious smoothie.
Having a smoothie in the morning is refreshing and an energy booster. It’s a great way to start you day.
As part of the fast, we are also reading the devotions from Kristen’s book, and a chapter from the gospel of John. Both are a good study tool for strengthening my relationship with the Lord.
After the smoothie, hubby and I are ready to do some light cardio. Getting back to my exercise routine after dealing with cold and flu symptoms.
I must admit, prayer and fasting is a real energy booster, clears my mind and ideas are flowing. I plan to write more about the fast after we finish it up at the end of January.
Hi Elegant Readers,
I have been battling a head cold for the last several days. I have had some restless nights, but claiming healing in Jesus name. The high temperature today is 9, yes 9 degrees.
I was recently contacted to sample a product that claims to increase lash growth from the inside out naturally, with no negative side effects. The name of the product is Lanakin, the company’s motto is: “Beautiful lashes start from within.”
That’s essential because there are many lash products that claim to grow longer lashes, but you must apply the topically and they are not natural.
Key ingredients include Lycopene, Burdook root, Primrose, and Green tea extract.
I accepted the offer because the product is natural. I, personally, do not want to apply any liquids or gels to my eyes. Lanakin has been clinical proven to increase lash length. Lanakin provided me with 28 nutricosmetic capsules for this trial.

I took a picture of my eyelashes before I started the two-week trial period.
I am on day three of taking the capsules. My eyelashes are already long, so I excited to see how they look after 14 days.

The directions on the bottle are to take two capsules per day. I take one capsule in the morning and one capsule at night.

The capsule is just like taking a vitamin with a full glass of water and no after taste.
