January 22 is National Hot Sauce Day — Here are two brands to try!

Hey, spicy lovers! January 22nd is the National Hot Sauce Day. Are you going to do something for this unique holiday? Of course, a hot sauce lover like me will hunt for some nice spices forever. Here are two hot sauces I recommend – making real nice hot foods on this spicy holiday!


Inspired by a beloved Venezuelan staple that is traditionally drizzled on grilled meats, sautéed veggies and sandwiches, Kumana is an avocado hot sauce that is stunningly delicious on eggs and pretty much anything you love to eat.

Crafted from veggies and fruits such as avocados, fresh onion, bell pepper, cilantro, garlic and just a splash of white vinegar, Kumana adds a punch of flavor to anything you’re eating.

Super Bowl is just around the corner, which means that besides a (hopefully!) exciting game, is a whole lot of fabulous food. Whether you’re hosting the festivities, or going to a party, make your dish stand out with new Kumana Avocado Hot Sauce. Take a twist from ordinary apps and add a fresh and vibrant drizzle of Kumana on your Super Bowl spread.

Available in three flavors:

Be Original: Truest to the Venezuelan avocado sauce that inspired the Kumana line.

Mango:  Blends in mango puree which adds a hint of sweetness. Think of mango salsa.

Hot: Takes a splash of mango and finishes it off with just the right amount of habanero heat.

Moore’s Marinades & Sauces

Moore’s Marinades & Sauces are continually adding to their lineup of products, and these hot sauces are the newest addition. We can look forward to Super Bowl, and maybe just as exciting, WINGS! Wings are one of my favorite things to eat and creating them is super easy with Moore’s Sauces and Marinades. All you have to do is fry, bake or grill the wings, and then toss them with one of Moore’s delicious wing sauces—and then you’re done! One of the most crowd pleasing recipes is the Moore‘s Wing Trioa delicious blend of Creamy Ranch BuffaloBlue Cheese Buffalo and the award-winning Original Buffalo Wing Sauce, these will be sure to please your audience’s palate.

Vegetarian? No problem–try theCauliflower Hot Wings. Cauliflower and Moore’s Habanero Hot Sauce combine to make an out of this world appetizer.

Saucy isn’t your thing? Then try the dry rub Smokey Hot Wings. A dry rub combined with one ofMoore’s Hot Sauces, these wings have a smoked flavor that is truly phenomenal. But the fun doesn’t stop there – take a look at all the yummy wing recipes on the Moore’sSauces and Marinades site.

With four flavors to choose from – from a milder mustard with cayenne to the explosive habanero, there is something for everyone’s taste buds. Here’s the product line-up:

Spicy Mustard: A little tangy, a little sweet . . . perfect for when you crave that mustard taste but want the added kick. Contains mustard seed combined with chili peppers and cayenne peppers.

Jalapeno: If you love green salsa, this sauce is for you. Made with tomatillo and cilantro with just a hint of lime, this sauce pairs perfectly with Mexican dishes.

Harissa: This sauce takes the heat up a notch with its unique blend of roasted chili peppers, habanero peppers, cayenne peppers and touch of garlic. Truly a unique taste, perfect for adding the perfect amount of fire to any dish.

Habanero: For those that like their food as hot as it can get, this naturally smoky sauce made from Costa Rican habanero peppers pairs perfectly with any food.

Winter depression is very real. As this holiday season approaches, some see it as the most wonderful time of year while others dread it.

Luckily with research on sensory engagement impacting moods, The Mood Factory has created a line of products that will help boost moods this winter.

The formulations are based on their white paper, expert advisors, and extensive research, and supporting the moodstates of Tranquility, Serenity, Happiness, and Energy.

One woman’s quest to heal problem skin

Nearly two decades ago, Roni Kramer received a degree in traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese herbology and opened her practice. Soon she realized that a large number of clients were coming to her with skin conditions like eczema, acne and psoriasis because of the side effects they were experiencing with cortisone and other conventional treatments. They were looking for a natural alternative.

That prompted Kramer to form a company called Kamedis (pronounced KaMEDis) and embark on years of R&D to determine what Chinese herbs and other botanicals could be used to treat these conditions safely and effectively.  The resulting products have been sold overseas for eight years – are clinically proven to reduce eczema flare-ups up to 50% in two weeks, acne lesions within 12 hours, and dandruff by 50% in two weeks – and have been available in the U.S. for the first time in January 2018.

Each product contains extracts from multiple plants, using a patented extraction process that produces such a potent concentration of botanicals that you can literally SEE THE DIFFERENCE in the vivid greens, ambers and honey colors of the formulations.

My favorite is their Clear line, as I have acne problems sometimes. And you know, acne is no fun – whether you’re 14 or 27, a single pimple to a full on breakout is straight up the worst. Kamedis created this product that will not only clear your face but keep it clear and resilient. Kamedis also wanted the acne products to balance your sebum production using an oil-free formula that won’t dry out the skin. Through the combination of eastern medicine and western innovation, Kamedis created just what they were looking for and made it available as a treatment set. See results in just 12 hours using the full acne treatment.

CBD Suppositories for Men: A Bold New Way to Relieve Pelvic and Back Pain

Lower back pain and pelvic pain are incredibly common ailments for men: half of all men will experience prostatitis in their lifetimes, along with other ailments like sciatica that cause pain in the lower back and pelvic regions. Fortunately, there’s an unorthodox new method for men to treat lower back and pelvic pain that’s not only safe but also highly effective: CBD suppositories.

Foria Wellness has released a new line of suppositories with broad-spectrum CBD and other organic ingredients (including cocoa butter) that’s designed to treat lower back pain and pelvic pain in men. Foria is currently conducting research with Harvard Doctor Staci Gruber to understand more about how the endocannabinoid receptors in the pelvis work; but what we do know now: Back and pelvic pain are dramatically reduced with this product and all without harmful drugs or surgeries. That yes, Dr. Gruber is affiliated with Harvard Medical School, she is also the Director of Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery (MIND) Program and the Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Core (CCNC) at McLean Hospital.

Basics Suppositories

$ 72.00

Basics Suppositories are formulated for relief during your period, or for local muscular relaxation and inflammation relief. Experience the soothing, tension-melting effects of our pristine broad-spectrum CBD. Each suppository delivers 100mg directly to the area that needs it most.

  • 8 suppositories / 100mg active CBD each
  • Broad-spectrum CBD from sun-grown USA hemp
  • 100% organic & fair-trade cocoa butter
  • Free of solvents, heavy metals, and pesticides
  • No additives, preservatives or THC

Relief Where You Need It

Once again, Foria has followed nature’s design, creating an all-natural formula with the purest ingredients available, formulated for direct, local relief. The vagina and the rectum readily absorb CBD, creating muscular relaxation and localized relief from discomfort and inflammation.

Like Foria Relief (available only at CA and CO cannabis dispensaries) Basics Suppositories are formulated for relief from menstrual cramping and discomfort — but are available worldwide. Basics Suppositories deliver 100mg of active, broad-spectrum CBD directly to the muscle and vascular tissues of the upper vagina and uterus. (Other over the counter remedies affect the entire body — often with unpleasant side-effects.)

Compared with CBD edibles and tinctures, these suppositories activate local receptors much faster. (The only form of CBD that works faster than suppositories is our CBD vape pen — though its soothing effects are more general, influencing overall mood and tension.)


For us purity starts at the source. This hemp is sun-grown on a sustainable farm that employs permaculture techniques to enhance soil, water, and biodiversity. After harvest, Foria Relief uses CO2-extraction (the gold standard for purity) to create a hemp extract rich in phytocannabinoids and terpenes, and deliver these actives in fragrant cocoa butter that’s 100% organic and fair trade certified. Foria Relief uses independent lab tests to ensure freedom from pesticides, heavy metals, microbes, and other toxins.

Hemp Extract (broad-spectrum CBD)

Broad-spectrum CBD is naturally soothing, helping to unwind local tension & discomfort while oxygenating and rebalancing tissue. CBD offers a tremendous range of potential health benefits, including antioxidant & anti-inflammatory effects, along with significant pain modulation.

Unlike cheaper CBD products made with “CBD Isolate,” Foria Relief exclusively uses Broad-Spectrum CBD — which is far more beneficial because it contains a range of cannabinoids & terpenes that enhance absorption and efficacy.

Organic Fair-Trade Cocoa Butter

Foria Relief‘s pure, organic cocoa butter is a fragrant, easy way to deliver CBD to the vagina or rectum. Cocoa butter is made from raw cacao beans, which are squeezed in a hydraulic press to express the rich, golden oil — which solidifies below 76 degrees.

Fair-trade cacao is grown and harvested by small farmers who work their own land with help from family and community members. Workers’ pay, schedule and accommodations are monitored by the fair trade certifier to ensure that every contributor gets a fair share of the benefits of this high-value crop, re-investing into education and material improvements for the community. (Cacao that isn’t certified this way is typically a bulk commodity with origins in exploitive labor.)

About FORIA:

Foria Wellness is committed to natural well-being & vibrant health. Foria Wellness‘s wellness formulas unite traditional herbs & botanicals to create natural enhancement products that are thoughtfully designed for both women & men.
