OraMD Breath Spray Review

First of all, I owe this sponsor a big apology - I've not gotten this review and giveaway up in a timely manner, and I'm so very sorry for the delay.   The last few months have been crazy but that is no excuse.  I LOVE this product  - it is always in my purse for a quick spray! - and I really think y'all will too.  So here is my review, and then info on the fabulous giveaway that Trusted Health Products is sponsoring.

How much do you spend each month on gum, mouthwash and other ways to hide bad breath?  I always have gum with me just in case, but that doesn't really fix the problem, it just masks it.  One spray of OraMD Breath spray will eliminate both bad breath and the bacteria that cause it!   Even better?  It's made with 100% natural, pure ingredients - peppermint oil, spearmint oil and almond oil. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this breath spray!

Like OraMD, which I shared with y'all here,  OraMD Breath has a strong, minty flavor at first.  After a few sprays, you will be used to it, but at first it may seem too strong.  Keep using it - the results are worth it!


  • One spray completely eliminates embarrassing bad breath.
  • Kills the cause of bad breath and keeps it from coming back (unlike chemical sprays, mouthwashes or breath mints).
  • Ingredients also clinically proven to kill periodontal bacteria (which is the worst kind of oral bacteria) – in a recent University of Kentucky Clinical Study.
  • Leaves a really fresh, clean feeling in your mouth – unlike anything you’ve experienced.
  • 100% pure ingredients only: Botanical oils of Almond, Spearmint and Peppermint.
  • No chemicals, sugar, alcohol, or anything artificial.
  • Includes about 60 sprays per bottle.
  • Same formulation as OraMD Original.
  • Endorsed by Dentists Worldwide.
  • Tens of thousands of satisfied OraMD customers all over the world.
  • Ships same day if ordered by 3:00 PM EST, Monday – Friday.
  • 24/7 Representatives available to take your order over the phone – 1.888.423.7500.

I only use it occasionally, and my bottle from last Fall is just now getting low. So it will last you about 60 sprays, but that could be several months depending on how often you use it.  

Check out their website for much more information on the natural ingredients and what they do, FAQ, testimonials and more.  Trusted Health Products is a great company to purchase from, I've always received fantastic customer service and quick shipping.  My dentist loved the results I saw from using OraMD drops, too!

Now onto the giveaway.... Three of you will receive a bottle of OraMD Breath Spray! Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below:

Cabana Grill Snellville, GA Review

This giveaway is only for my Atlanta-area readers!  We are so lucky to have an amazing new restaurant here to enjoy - Cabana Grill.  It just opened in Snellville and it is a fun new concept for Mexican food!

The food is prepared fresh for you when you order - you choose what you want on your nachos, quesadilla, tostado, etc.  Choose from three proteins - Chicken, Steak or Shrimp.

Kids under 12 can choose from a taco or quesadilla, plus a small side and drink.

Cabana Grill's menu features these sides: Mexican Rice or Cilantro Lime Rice, Mexican Potatoes, Charro beans,  Refried Pintos, Black Beans or Refried Black Beans.  I tried the Refried Pintos with my Chicken Fajita bowl and all I can say is - delicious!!

Premium toppings are available for a small charge: Guacamole, Grilled onions and peppers, Cheddar Jack cheese or Asadero cheese. Oh, did I mention that they make their own flour and corn tortillas right there in the open kitchen where you can watch them prepare your food?  Yep, they do!

The Salsa bar is crazy-good! Chipotle Lime, Salsa Crema and Avocado Cilantro are their Signature Salsas; they also have other toppings to choose from.  The Chipotle Lime was my favorite!

Now that you are hungry, who wants a Margarita? They are available by the glass or pitcher!  They also offer a variety of bottled beers, both imported and domestic.

David thought it was great that they offer Mexican Coke and Fanta in bottles.

Every day from 4 -  7 pm they offer a $5 Fiesta special!

To celebrate Spring Break, Cabana Grill is offering a week-long Fiesta on the patio!!  

Monday, April 6 - Live music on the patio from 6-8 pm

Tuesday, April 7 - Kids eat Free Night - plus a face painter and a balloon artist - 5 - 8 pm

Wednesday - April 8 - Magic Night - a local magician will perform from 5 - 8 pm

Thursday - April 9 - Build your own pinata from 5 - 8 pm

Friday - April 10 - Friday Fiesta - Karaoke, Caricature Artist, drink and food specials from 4 - 9 pm 

Make sure to say hi to the manager, William Moses and Tennielle - who was helpful in getting us acquainted with the menu, showing us around, and telling us all about Cabana Grill!  (I am so upset that the picture I took of her with her nametag so I could spell her name correctly turned out terribly blurry,  I am sure I didn't get her name right, and I'm so sorry!!)  The folks at Cabana Grill make you feel right at home.  They greet everyone with a smile, and the wonderful customer service rivals that of Chick Fil A! 

Please make a visit to Cabana Grill.  It's our new go-to place when we head to Snellville for trips to Sprouts Farmers Market, or when we are coming home from Stone Mountain!  Hours are: Mon - Sun:
11:00 am - 11:00 pm and they are located at 1635 Scenic Hwy  Snellville, GA 30078.  

Ok, so now for my Atlanta-area readers, here is the awesome giveaway! Five of you will win a $5 Gift Card to enjoy Cabana Grill!

Easy entry and fast - there is only one entry per person!  This contest ends 4/27.  Share with your friends and y'all can go together to enjoy a fun night at Cabana Grill!  You must live in metro Atlanta, or your entry will be disqualified.
