I was helping Cheryl to understand how oils worked, she was just being introduced to complimentary health care ideas. This took along time and she was at my house coughing all morning. About lunch I got and idea and went and got the Raven and asked her to put it on her chest, saving my lungs from her bugs. Right away she stopped hacking, and she loved the nice warm feeling. The rest of the afternoon she didn't hack again. It was a great example that when the oils work it usually takes less than four minutes to see your symptoms go away. They are powerful and they do accomplish what they say they will.

drugs in water by Dr. Mercola

As reported in New Scientist, a comprehensive survey of U.S. drinking water reveals that your drinking water is also likely laced with a wide variety of pharmaceuticals and hormonally active chemicals.
The 11 most frequently detected compounds were:
Atenolol, a beta-blocker used to treat cardiovascular disease
Atrazine, an organic herbicide banned in the European Union which has been implicated in the decline of fish stocks and in changes in animal behavior
Carbamazepine, a mood-stabilizing drug used to treat bipolar disorder
Estrone, an estrogen hormone secreted by the ovaries and blamed for causing gender changes in fish
Gemfibrozil, an anti-cholesterol drug
Meprobamate, a tranquilizer used in psychiatric treatment
Naproxen, a painkiller and anti-inflammatory linked to increases in asthma incidence
Phenytoin, an anticonvulsant used to treat epilepsy
Sulfamethoxazole, an antibiotic
TCEP, a reducing agent used in molecular biology
Trimethoprim, another antibiotic

poison ivy

I have my oils shipped to my office so I get them as soon as they hit town and I open them as soon as I get them, occasionally people on the other side of the office yell at me what the **** did you open now. ( I had to promise not to open valerian in the office ever again) well you know how the oils affect toxic people, and we have some really toxic people here.
Any way I get heckled daily about being a witch doctor. But who do they come to with problems. I found out yesterday that one of the girls was going through my desk on Friday (while I was a C.A.R.E.) looking for my lavender oil she had a sun burn!!!
Then this week my best heckler, the girl who sits next to me and smells every thing I do, came to me. She ask what do you have for poison ivy? I did not have my reference=2 0book with me so I pulled out my favorite trusty fix everything oil THIEVES, and gave her a few drops. after I had her wash off the Windex she had been putting on it ( she says it dries it up) but it was not drying it at all. I told her it would only dry it up because it had alcohol in it and that Windex is not a good choice. Well guess what, the poison Ivy just started shriveling away she was really pleased. Every one should have a bottle of Lavender and a bottle of Thieves, if they can afford nothing else. Bev Scalf

water - FDA lack of rules

Even when bottled waters are covered by the FDA's rules, they are subject to less rigorous testing and purity standards than those which apply to city tap water (see chart below). For example, bottled water is required to be tested less frequently than city tap water for bacteria and chemical contaminants. In addition, bottled water rules allow for some contamination by E. coli or fecal coliform (which indicate possible contamination with fecal matter), contrary to tap water rules, which prohibit any confirmed contamination with these bacteria. Similarly, there are no requirements for bottled water to be disinfected or tested for parasites such as cryptosporidium or giardia, unlike the rules for big city tap water systems that use surface water sources.

Dr. Andrew Weil M.D.

The latest study of bottled water came from the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a Washington-based nonprofit organization that investigates pollutants and their impact on public health. The EWG report isn't the first or the most comprehensive on the subject of bottled water. In 1999, the National Resources Defense Council, a New York-based environmental advocacy group, tested more than 1,000 bottles of 103 brands of bottled water and found that about one-third violated state standards or microbial impurity guidelines. The following year, a Consumer Reports investigation concluded that eight of 10 five-gallon polycarbonate jugs tested contained residues of bisphenol A, an endocrine disrupter.
The EWG report, issued in October 2008, documented a surprising array of chemical contaminants in every bottled water brand analyzed. The contaminants included toxic byproducts of chlorination in the store brands of several large retail chains, at levels the same as those routinely found in tap water. The EWG said that it considered the results to "represent a snapshot of the market during the window of time" in which the samples were purchased.
Cancer-causing contaminants in bottled water tested "substantially exceeded the voluntary standards established by the bottled water industry," the EWG reported. The lab tests were conducted at the University of Iowa Hygienic Laboratory on 10 brands of bottled water purchased at retail outlets in nine states and the District of Columbia.
The contaminants included disinfection byproducts, common urban wastewater pollutants such as caffeine and pharmaceuticals; heavy metals and minerals including arsenic and radioactive isotopes; fertilizer residue (nitrate and ammonia); and a broad range of others, tentatively identified industrial chemicals used as solvents, plasticizers, viscosity decreasing agents, and propellants.

Youngliving tooth paste

I just had my yearly teeth checkup and passed with flying colors. Not so before Youngliving.
My hyginist said that my gums were in amazing shape - she was very impressed and ask what I had done to make the change. My spaces between the teeth were the same but Im thankful they were not worse. I told her about the tests done by Weber State University in Ogden Utah and how they found that the oils in my toothpaste kill 60 different bacteria. Brushing only kills 40% of the bugs in my mouth -- now I know the oils are killing the rest and I don't have to worry about gingivitis any more j


A 1995 study at the College of Pharmaceutical and Biological Science found the thyme essential oil even in itty bitty concentration like 500 parts per million or less killed all the organisms that are responsible for tooth decay and gingivitis and bad breath. There are actually 100 different studies out there that agree with this study. The Journal of the American Dental
Association say that the use of essentail oils is widely used to prevent and treat periodontitis and to prevent the formation of supragingival plaque.


I have an amazing story, I've always bruised easily and had capillary walls break making big blue bruises on my skin. I read that essential oils help speed the healing and decrease the clot formation. Last week I brusied the whole tip of my thumb at work, it was just black. That night when I got home from work I applies cypress and lemongrass essential oils and in the morning the black was gone and the pain too. Yesterday at home, I did the same thing to my index finger but not quite as bad. I had the oil right there and applied them right away. The bruise never came and my finger hardly hurt. Again the oils I used were lemongrass and cypress. Joan

Home Spa lady -- travel

-Take footies to wear while in hotel room instead of being barefoot.
-Use one of the glasses in the bathroom to put your toothbrush in vertically, whether it has a cover or not. If it is not covered put the toothbrush handle inside of the glass and put the brush part at the top where it is not touching any surfaces.
-Take your own soap and carry it in a plastic soap tray. This is how I use my essential oils: (and they are absolutely essential - I would never travel without them for many reasons, one is that they naturally kill unwanted bacteria, virus, and fungus):
--Sprinkle several drops on the carpet throughout the room (if I'm barefoot) {I like Purification}
--Spray my favorite essential oil spray {Thieves spray bottle I carry in my purse} on the remote control and the earpiece and mouthpiece of the phone
--Sprinkle several drops of a good anti-microbial oil {Purification or Thieves} on a washcloth and stuff it into the vents of the a/c/heater {I love Purification mixed with orange for this}. Turn on the fan and run it so the oil diffuses throughout the room.
--If you must use the drawers, spray or drip a few drops of oil in the drawer or on a tissue and then put it in the drawer next to your clothes (lavender is good for this).
--Place a few drops of lemon (I always have lemon with me) on the bathroom counter and wipe it down
--Place a few drops of oil on the bed where you will sit (lavender) and put a few drops on a tissue and tuck under your pillow.

hotel room and smoke

We went to see our granddaugher in Arizona and the hotel room was awful. It was a nonsmoking room but it smelled like smoke and food and bad body oder.
I had some peppermint along, it did help some. Got some more ideas? J
