Ditch the Itch: Product Review of Ilog Maria Throat Spray




I talk loud since the day I learned how. And being such, I joined numerous contests, from declamation, storytelling up to the point of leading a speech choir. But a bad case of throat and nasal infection that left me hospitalized for days, left me with a slightly hoarse voice and a very sensitive throat. I sneeze and get headaches at the slightest trace of smoke, I have runny nose more than 5x a year, and too much talking, too much sweets and lack of water can set up a serious fire on my throat.

Two weeks ago, I held my first bazaar event in Ayala Alabang. It was a bazaar, so you can imagine how I endlessly entertained customer queries for 12 long hours. I went home exhausted and fell asleep in less than five minutes, only to be awakened by a burning sensation on my throat. I knew it was serious, since it was able to wake me up from my deep sleep. [even alarm clocks don't work on me!].

I stood up, got some warm water and a pinch of salt, and gargled like there's no tomorrow. But the fiery itch starts to get really painful and I couldn't sleep anymore. I suddenly remembered the Ilog Maria Throat Spray that Martha, the beauty junkee, was talking about in her blog. She's a theater actress, and in vain need to protect her asset (thanks, sis!). Ilog Maria is fairly new in my list of products to sell, and so this is the perfect time to test it.

I squirted 3 sprays directly on my throat, and I automatically felt an intense cool sensation that eventually beat the pain. I was literally shocked on how fast it worked. I went back to sleep and after 5 long hours, I woke up, without even a trace of itch or pain! I couldn't believe it. I've always believed in the powers of organics, and I'm the biggest fan. But I know nature takes time to heal, but Ilog Maria proved me wrong this time!

Lifted from their website:

"Propolis Throat Spray (30 ml) Breath Freshener & Bacteriostatic Throat & Mouth Spray. Made from ILOG MARIA Virgin Honey, Propolis Gold & Peppermint / Spearmint Oils. Prevents colds and coughs, even fever/flu, if taken immediately after an "itchy throat" is felt. Spray twice on tonsils at first sign of a cough or cold. Soothes sore throat and smoker's cough. Excellent for cold sores or "singaw". Clears itchy throat & hoarse voice fast."

True to their word, their throat spray prevented cough, colds and tonsilitis, that could have left me sick for days. I tell you, when I catch the flu, I catch the toughest kind! So thank God for finding this gem. I'ts officially in my necessity kit from now on.





Likes:
-Relieves itch and pain INSTANTLY
-Cools your throat INSTANTLY
-100% ORGANIC, so goodbye to chemical gargles!
- Prevents colds, flu and tonsilitis effectively, VERY effectively
- very handy
- safe even for kiddos =)

Dislikes:
- Not actually a dislike, but taste can be an issue to some. It's a bit strong & spicy BUT NOT BAD!
- Not widely available, you can get it only form their farm in Silang, Cavite, or through their website which charges provincial rate or through MY organic store.

Overall Verdict: 100% approved. And I'm not saying this because I sell it, I'm not that desperate. LOL. =P

Have a great midweek lovelies, I'm soo busy, hence the lack of updates, but i still read yours EVERYDAY! So keep them coming!

Much Love,
The NeuroChiq

PS: Got this as a Holloween treat in the office, aside from the fact that I'm a chocolate monster, I like the message! Very TRUE! We worry too much, and so we smile and feel happy less. And most of the time, our worries aren't even close to reality. So chill & smile at the person in front of you now! I am, seriously! =)

  3. @ Nikki: True! I saw Ilog Maria featured on TV several years back, but I was then a student still living on allowance. So when I'm already making money, I tried their products and the rest is love-story =D Sonya's use them too =D

    @ Stacie: Hmm, I believe this is just available here in Phils., the bee farm is 100% organic, so that means they only harvest what comes naturally, so without the aid of fertilizers etc., their supplies are premium but very limited. If you ever get to visit here, buzz me and I'll bring you some =D
