I was told “You are going to want to lick the jar!” Well let me tell you…that was just the beginning!
I received my Simply Ghee, Black Garlic flavor a few days ago. It took me about 10 seconds from when my package came through the door until I tried that lovely ghee.
I should probably be honest with you at this point. I imagined myself putting it on so many things. I wanted to savor the jar and let out my inner foodie! I wanted to cook an absolutely blissful meal, try it on toast, on veggies, on pizza, fry an egg in it…I could go on. However when push came to shove, I whipped off the lid and stuck my finger into the jar. YES, I did. It was a moment where a grown woman lost control in the excitement of trying something new, and boy did it feel good!
Now that I have confessed to you all, l must ask. Have you tried ghee yet? If your answer is no, you are missing out! I’m not new to ghee. It’s something I cook and bake with often and it has become one of my pantry staples. It is one of the few “dairy” products that I am able to use and boy am I thankful (so is my butter loving husband). Ghee is made by gently heating butter and removing the lactose (sugars) and the caseins (proteins). With the lactose and caseins removed only the rich golden oil remains. This oil contains the optimal ratio of Omega 3/Omega 6 and fat soluble vitamins A, D, E & K. I find that ghee has all the great flavor of butter with a texture similar to that of softened room temperature butter. Since the lactose and caseins are removed those that may have a hard time eating traditional dairy are sometimes able to tolerate ghee, such as myself. Whew!
So what’s black garlic and why put it in ghee? As I understand it, black garlic is a fermented garlic. Through the fermentation process what was once raw and pungent garlic flavor becomes this wonderful mild savory garlic flavor. It almost has an ever so slightly sweet or molasses like tone to it. Black garlic also boasts double the antioxidants that traditional raw garlic holds. There is one more secret, I’ve read that black garlic won’t make you have that stinky garlic breath that raw garlic so often leaves behind. All this being said, am such a garlic lover and was just so excited about this new flavor. When I say garlic lover, I mean it. I put it into 50-70% of the meals that I prepare for my family. When Simply Ghee came out with the Black Garlic flavor, purchasing it to try was a no brainer for me. After tasting it, I would describe it as a nice mild garlic flavor whipped into this light and airy ghee with an accent of sea salt. Can you tell that I really love it?
Mix that fabulous mild black garlic flavor and healthy antioxidants, with the wonderful nourishing tradition of ghee (made from grass fed butter as Simply Ghee is) and I don’t believe you can go wrong. It’s a great match!
From now on when you peek into my pantry, you’ll spot at least one jar of Black Garlic Simply Ghee. I may actually need to keep one just for myself and one for guests. I can’t guarantee I, or another family member, won’t dip a finger into it again!
If you like garlic, I’d recommend you pick up a jar of Simply Ghee Black Garlic. Cook with it and let me know if it unleashed your inner foodie or if you were like me and just couldn’t wait. Either way, go for it and enjoy!

On a former dairy farm up in the mountainous region of Northern Pennsylvania, a pharmacist-turned-maple syrup entrepreneur has created a new use out of the pristine farmland. The result is Rocky Ridge Maple.

This certainly is a company that you can feel good about supporting! “And did you know?

We love maple syrup. We are lucky to have some local options here in the Garden Spot of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, but this is some of the best that I have ever tasted!

You may have read my previous blog post about Josiah’s Oils UltraPure SPF Sun Stick. I am adamant about keeping my daughters and myself fully protected from the sun. My poor husband, however, is not so adamant. He was outside working on a semi-cloudy day, didn’t put sunscreen on right away, and by evening, was sadly feeling some of the effects of the sun on his shoulders and neck. He came walking out to me, head down, handed me the Egyptian Magic Skin Cream, and turned around, ready for a generous application of one of the best products around. He knew what would be the best remedy for his mistake!!
Who uses this EXTREMELY VERSATILE product?
Lauren Conrad. Kate Hudson. Gisele. Rachel Zoe. Rashida Jones. Chaka Khan. My poor husband. My kids. Me.
I keep a 4oz jar in the bathroom, and 2oz jars in my purse, travel toiletry bag, and my daughters’ travel toiletry bag! We even have a jar in my Park Bag beside my Josiah’s Oils Insect Away and my Josiah’s Oils UltraPure SPF Sun Stick

All of this sunshine we are experiencing here in Lancaster County, PA has me dreaming of the school-free summer days to come…and all of the Josiah’s Oils Ultra Pure SPF Sun Stick and Josiah’s Oils Insect Away that we will be using!
I am very fair-skinned and burn quite easily. We spend a lot of time outside, and you will find my girls in short-sleeve or even long-sleeve rash guards most of the time! I go through numerous Josiah’s Oils stick of sunblock each summer. It has a faint hint of yummy essential oil, and I know that I am putting on probably one of the most pure products out there.
No nanoparticles, no chemical UV absorbers, no parabens, no phthalates, no synthetic preservatives, and no fragrances or dyes. We apply liberally and reapply often! I always used your typical commercially sold sunscreens and the white sheen that comes from quality sunblock always threw me off a little bit…I am now proud of that white sheen, because I know it is working to block the sun! (The non-nanoparticle zinc oxide works as a physical block—it sits on the skin’s surface and is NOT absorbed into your skin or your blood stream like chemical sunscreens!) The ingredients are PURE: coconut oil, grape seed oil, sunflower seed oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, beeswax, 20% non-nanoparticle zinc oxide, and Vitamin E!
My other favorite product for the summer?
Josiah’s Oils Insect Away, which I started using two summers ago. This will be summer number three already! Every single person that smells this product immediately comments on how much they LOVE the smell! You cannot even begin to compare this to the commercial products out there. I love being able to shake my bottle and spray liberally and often on my girls, and know that they are safe and that I am not spraying chemicals on them.
We have many hikes planned this summer, as well as two camping trips. We also have trips to the beach/bay area, where bugs can be BRUTAL. Josiah’s Oils Insect Away essential oil blend not only helps protect against mosquitos, fleas, and lice, but it also includes Rose Geranium oil, which has been shown to keep away the ticks! I have only pulled ticks off of my children once, and that was a late fall hike where I thought it was too cold for ticks, and we had no protection! Remember: There is no DEET or other chemicals in this product…in fact, there is NOTHING harmful, just pure essential oils (cedarwood, peppermint, rose geranium, and lemongrass), aloe, and steamed distilled water.
I have what I call my “Park Bag” which is ready-to-grab on even last-minute trips to the park nearby or to take along for our longer trips. What do I keep in there? Josiah’s Oils Insect Away and Josiah’s Oils Ultra Pure SPF Sun Stick of course! I also keep wide-brimmed hats for my girls and for myself, a small first-aid kit, an extra towel, and an extra set of clothes for each girl in case of impromptu stream stomping! I have two empty pockets ready for our Kleen Kanteens and an empty pouch ready for me to stick in some Nick’s Grass-Fed Beef Sticks, Just Tomatoes Freeze Dried Fruit, and some Sprouted Raw Almonds for snacks for all three of us. We are READY for SUMMER! Are you?? Don’t forget, add in these Josiah’s Oils products into your cart, and fill it up to $49 to qualify for free shipping! And did you order your Nikki’s Coconut Butter yet?? Trust me when I say, all of the products that we have highlighted so far in the blog posts are products you want to have in your cupboard and/or travel bag!!
