Win a Necklace and a Manuka Soap Bar from N. Zealand!

Hey guys, Adventures of a Beauty Queen is having it’s FIRST EVER blog contest!!!  I am SO excited to do this 🙂

YOU CAN WIN this Infinitry Pendant on a bar of Manuka Soap!!!

Up for grabs is this lovely Manuka Soap (which smells like heaven) and Necklace with a gorgeous Infinity Pendant. I found them in a lovely little shop in New Zealand during my recent trip there. The soap is handmade by Joanna White who manages “Handmade NZ Lavender Farm Ltd”. Click here to check out the website.

Just a short note on Manuka – it is the Maori word for the Tea Tree plant. I’m sure the kikays reading this will be familiar with Tea Tree oil products that are often used to fight zits.

Well, Manuka products have long been valued for thier healing properties by the Maoris, who are the indigenous people of Aotearoa (New Zealand). Aromatherapy researchers have found Manuka Oil to have anti-bacterial properties (that’s why it’s effective vs. zits!) They have found it to be well-tolerated by the skin and to be helpful for itchy and irritated skin as well.

For the psyche, Manuka is reported to be beneficial in fighting stress, nervousness and anxiety. I have to agree with this last statement as the smell of this Manuka soap bar is powerful enough to make me feel as bubbly as a glass of champagne!

1) Click here and READ this blog post I wrote about the Polynesian Spa in Rotorua, New Zealand

    Good Day Madam:
    I’m a big fan of DF & d knowledge you’ve shared was awesome. Let me start my comments as I recall my botany class>> the traditional use of this medicinal Manuka tree:
    Its effectiveness against bacteria & fungus infections e.g. acne, pimples, eczema, ringworm, skin rash, chafing, itching, dandruff, bedsores, athletes foot, nailbed infections, foot & body odor, cuts, abrassions, insect bites & stings, sunburn, muscle aching joints, aromatheraphy. The LEAVES: thru deconcoction was drunk for urinary complaints & to reduce fever. The BARKS & LEAVES were boiled for stiff backs & rheumatic joints. The YOUNG SHOOTS were chewed & swallowed for dysentery. The BARK,SAP, SEED CAPSULES: used for various ailments.
    MANUKA OIL: is gaining popularity in Aromatheraphy w/c we love so much where u can feel good inside. The benefits for people w/ over sensitive nervous system & those who suffers fr. stress & anxiety. Conditions that often manifest themselves in allergic reaction w/c I experienced many times.
    More Power Madam & I hope 1 day i can see see d miraculous manuka tree fr. heaven.. GODSPEED
