I’ve been dying to try something from the JASON naturals range for a while. You may have heard of them; they have a huge range of skincare and haircare products in lots of different ‘flavours’ and the entire range is based on natural goodness:
The J?SÖN® brand is devoted to using only ingredients from the rich source of goodness that is earth’s garden and its natural resources. There are no artificial colours or animal by-products, the packaging is bio-degradable and packaged in recycled and/or recyclable containers. All products are certified Vegatarian too.
The range is REALLY huge and it’s quite hard to decide what to try (their UK site is here).
I am a big fan of Tea Tree for it’s antiseptic properties. I was sent a few products from this range to try:
The Tea Trea hand soap I kept in the kitchen and has been a real hit with Mr C (cos he tends to do all the cooking ahem) and also as he has psoriasis on his hands. Rather than being harsh, this hand soap is very gentle but you feel like it’s really killing all the germs effectively.
I like the Tea Tree scent though, of course is a unique thing – some people hate it because it reminds them of medicine which I totally understand, some people like the zingy-ness. I definitely don’t hate it but some Tea Tree products are a bit too strong for me. The JASON range Tea Tree smells just right, slightly minty almost and isn’t too distracting to use day to day.
I would usually buy fairly cheap anti bacterial hand wash but as I’ve been very anal recently about not spreading germs, I would spend £5 on a soap like this as it’s not got any nasty ingredients (free of SLS and Parabens).
Tea Tree Nail Saver:
I have many cuticle oils and they tend to smell flowery or fruity. So this is an unusual one because it’s got that medicinal Tea Tree smell but it’s fine. The texture of the oil is quite light and it sits there for a while unlike some other cuticle oils or creams that sink in quickly so bear this in mind if you don’t want to touch things with your greasy fingers!
The ingredients list is very good – I can live with a slightly oily residue if there are no nasties in this:
Finally my favourite product from the Tea Tree Range!
The Cooling Minerals & Tea Tree Pure Natural Muscle Pain Therapy Balm!
They say: This long-lasting, 100% natural pain reliever deeply penetrates tight, aching muscles. Many sports doctors and physical therapists recommend deep cold therapy to treat painful injuries. JASON’s exclusive, all-vegetable formula contains no animal fats, mineral oil, petrolatum or paraffin wax.
I wasn’t sure if this would have a really hard texture (and be hard to work into the skin) because that’s how it looks! But it doesn’t it’s fab:
I have used many muscle rubs before and they are just average even the ones like deep heat I find extremely average.
The best muscle product I use is a Japanese Heat Sticker my Nan buys from Hong Kong it’s the best but it is a bugger to pull off after 12 hours wear. It takes all your hair with it!
So in truth I wasn’t expecting much from this natural muscle balm. But it is excellent. Mr C rubbed this on to my lower arm where I have been suffering some serious pains (about where I carry my bag, hmmm!). I was surprised by how LONG the heat lasted, and how hot it got – the hotter the better because it provides longer, greater pain relief.
I would say it was on par with my deep heat plasters from Japan.
LOVE this product, well worth trying if you like that warming sensation to help muscle pains.
Ingredients: Safflower seed oil, sunflower seed oil, beeswax, eucalyptus leaf oil, C18-36 acid triglyceride, tribehenin, natural menthol, sesame seed oil*, virgin olive fruit oil*, wintergreen leaf oil, soybean oil*, avocado oil, evening primrose oil, hazelnut oil, tea tree leaf oil*, tocopheryl acetate (Vit.

This was a nice dabble in Jason, I will definitely try more of the range like the Shampoo etc once I have used some of my current products up!
