Thieves Oil

     Here is an interesting article I'd like to share with you on thieves oil. I know from personal experience that the Thieves oil and the Thieves house hold cleaner are great organic disinfectants  fungal killers, smell great and they are great at  hard to clean jobs.

Thieves Essential Oil - The Organic Germ Killer

Thieves essential oil blend is hands down my favorite oil of the season. Well really, one of my favorite oils ever. Young Living produces only therapeutic grade essential oils from organic ingredients, so you can be sure that this organic germ killer is of the highest quality. Nothing is more effective, yet completely natural and chemical free.
Thieves essential oil is a blend of highly anti-viral, anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-infectious oils. The formula was created by four thieves in 15th century France who would cover themselves with oils to prevent contracting the plague when robbing plague victims. When they were arrested, they were given a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret formula. The most powerful ingredient in this organic germ killer oil is Clove oil, which is the highest scoring single oil on the ORAC scale (which is one of the most sensitive and reliable methods for measuring a substance's antioxidant capacity). Clove is highly antiviral and antibacterial, and has a delicious, sweet scent. Clove is blended with Lemon (powerful antioxidant), Cinnamon Bark (digestive aid and support), Eucalyptus Radiata (highly antibacterial) and Rosemary (energizing and antimicrobial) to create the most powerful organic germ killer oil on the market today. A 1997 study at Weber State University found Thieves blend to be 99.96% effective in killing airborne micro-organisms.
Young Living has created an entire line of Thieves products, making this organic germ killer simple to incorporate into your everyday life. When the oil itself is diffused, it kills airborne germs, odors, micro-organisms and even molds. Applied topically to the bottoms of the feet or ingested in a capsule, Thieves organic germ killer properties boosts your immunity with anti-viral and anti-bacterial capabilities. The line of soaps and oral care products cleanse without adding synthetic ingredients, and the household cleaner is highly effective without harsh chemical cleaners.
Thieves essential oil blend is a must if you are looking for a healthy, organic germ killer, especially for the cold and flu season. Essential oils are an amazing, powerful way to make your life healthier and more enjoyable, and the Thieves oil blend is hands down one of the most amazing oils out there.

The New Plan That Seems to Be working!

          In the past; I've watched calories and fat grams it seemed to work some but not a lot unless I added exercise. I have recently seen a big change in a couple of people around me. One cut out gluten the other read and followed Jorge Cruise, The Belly Fat Cure. These ladies made such a change that I decided to see what I could do.
          About two weeks ago: I switched from my heavy IPA beers to New Planet gluten free beer, I don't eat any bread with meals, I've cut down on breaded entrees and started using corn starch instead of flour to thicken soups and gravies. I use the whole grain sandwich thins when I make a sandwich. So far I've found that the Oroweat brand has the less sugar to fiber and protein.
        Which brings me to the other big thing. I've always read labels, but I never paid much attention to the sugar content. Now I'm looking at three things; fiber, sugar and protein. I'm trying not to buy anything with more than 5g per serving of sugar. If it does have more than 5g it has to have at least an equal amount of fiber. I'm trying to get as much protein and fiber into my diet as I can. In fact I'm drinking a Whey protein drink/ mixing it with almond milk and shooting for 35g of fiber a day.
      I also have increased my water intake.
      I drink a pint of my wellness tea a day. ( See the recipe on this blog)
      I drink 4oz of ningxia red a day; 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening.
         In the past two weeks I've lost about 10 lbs. It might have been more but at the start of this program I cooked myself two huge dinners and it was late. When eating sensibly, the weight seems to fall right off.
    I have also been working out with some light weights and I've walked 3 days over the last two weeks. the exercise is very infrequent and I don't consider it a major factor at this time but as the weather gets nicer I'll be walking every day and that should dramatically speed up the weight loss.
           I'll let you know in a couple of weeks

Abundance Essential Oils

Essential Oils In Your Office - Greater Abundance Using Certain Essential Oils

Certain essential oils and abundance just go together. What I would like to share with you in this article is a list of some of the abundance essential oils and ideas on how to implement them in your office.
Oils of Abundance and Wealth
The first eight oils on this list are known for their qualities of attracting abundance and prosperity. The last one, rose, is simply one of my personal favorites.
  • Frankincense. During ancient times, frankincense was considered to be more valuable than gold and could be found in wealthy households. When I inhale it, I feel wealthy, and putting it on the soles of my feet - not easily done in a company office - is just downright luxurious!
  • Myrrh. According to legends, myrrh possesses the frequency of wealth. In ancient times, it was used in royal palaces.
  • Cinnamon bark. One of the measurements of wealth for emperors of ancient China and India was the amount of oil they possessed. Cinnamon bark was highly regarded as an oil of wealth.
  • Clove. In the Orient of old, people who possessed clove oil were considered to have great wealth.
  • Ginger. In ancient times, this oil was prized among the wealthy. In today's terminology, we would say that it amplifies the law of attraction.
  • Orange. This oil so frequently brings feelings of happiness that prosperity can follow soon thereafter.
  • Patchouli. Legend says that this oil represents money and that those who have it were considered wealthy.
  • Rose. This is most expensive oil (Rosa damascena) that I buy and just having it makes me feel abundantly blessed!

How People Are Using Abundance Oils
Whether to use just one of these oils or a combination of them is a personal choice. Some people prefer to make their own abundance blend, while others prefer to purchase it.
Some fast and easy ways to start using your abundance and wealth oils include the following:
  • Inhale directly from the bottle.
  • Diffuse in a cold air diffuser.
  • Put a drop on your telephone.
  • Put a drop on your computer or computer keyboard.
  • Wear as a cologne or perfume.
  • Place a drop on your check book.
  • Place a drop on mailings that you send out.
There are probably 101 ways to use essential oils to attract greater wealth and abundance to your office.

6 reason to drink Ningxia Red

 a conference call with Marc Schreuder, the lead researcher of Young Living Essential Oils. He spoke about the 6 health benefits of NingXia Red (NR). This article is a summary of his lecture.
Here are Marc's 6 reasons to drink NingXia Red (pronounced ning-ja):
1. Longevity
The Ningxia wolfberry is consumed in a region of China where people are known for their longevity. In Ningxia China, there is 5 times the number of people living over 100 than any other part of China. The NingXia wolfberry has a longevity history unlike any other berries on the market.
2. Contains Essential Oils
NR is the only liquid supplement containing therapeutic grade essential oils. The essential oils in NR are orange and lemon. Both of these essential oils have been studied for their ability to combat cellular mutation, which is the first step to cancer.
Orange and Lemon essential oils have THE most anti-mutating properties of all the essential oils. Since NR contains essential oils, it is also an essential oil supplement.
3. Highest Antioxidant in the World
NingXia Red's antioxidant capacity has been tested and validated at Brunswick lab in MA. Brunswick lab developed the ORAC testing. ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity. NR scored higher than any other supplement or food!
To put this in perspective for you, here's an example of how NR compares to other foods:
1 oz. of NingXia Red has the same amount of antioxidants as-
100 oranges
11 pounds of spinach
55 pounds of almonds
55 tomatoes
23 large purple onions
2 pounds of blueberries
4. Anti-inflammatory and Energy-Giving Properties
Inflammation in the body is connected to many chronic diseases today, such as heart disease and cancer. NR has the ability to modulate the immune system because of a molecule called beta cryptoxanthin, a cousin to beta carotene (vitamin A.) Beta cryptoxanthin has one of the highest anti-inflammatory properties of any known compound.
The University of Manchester did studies on beta cryptoxanthin and found that the levels are very high in oranges. One single glass of fresh squeezed orange juice it is sufficient to reducing poly-arthritis. However, the beta cryptoxanthin levels in NingXia wolfberry are over 20 times the levels of orange juice. And the NingXia wolfberry is the highest known substance containing beta cryptoxanthin. People are noticing a decrease in arthritis symptoms within weeks of starting on NingXia Red.
5. Maintains Low Blood Sugar Levels
NR will not spike blood sugar levels. It has a Glycemic index of 11 compared to pure glucose which is 100, white bread is 70 and pinto beans are 42. NingXia wolfberries are one of the lowest of any known food on the Glycemic index rating.
Maintaining high blood sugar levels over the years can damage your body worse than smoking a pack of cigarettes a day!
6. Supports Eye Health
The University of Chicago conducted tests and found that a compound called zeaxanthin is the predominant carotenoid found in the eyes. It's more important than lutien or any other compound found. The highest known foods containing zeaxanthin are raw egg yolks and red peppers. However, after testing NR, the results showed 20 times more than the amount in raw egg yolks and 15 times more than the amount in red peppers.
Once again, the 6 reasons you should be drinking NingXia Red...
1. Longevity
2. Contains Essential Oils that Combat Cell Mutation
3. Highest Antioxidant on the ORAC Chart
4. Anti-inflammatory
5. Low Glycemic Index
6. Supports Healthy Eyesight
Also, I'd like to share with you some information on how Young Living's Ningxia wolfberry is grown, harvested and packaged.
The wolfberry begins its life on an organic farm in Ningxia, China. The wolfberries are freshly picked, quadruple washed, sanitized and then pureed. The processing plant is totally aseptic and clean and the juice processing is done in stainless steel. We use all modern, hygienic equipment. The processing plant is cleaned with steam, not chemicals.
The wolfberries are grown in the surrounding Yellow River Delta, where all the Himalayan melt water flows down. This melt water nourishes the soil making it rich in minerals. This process creates a berry that has unmatched nutritional impact.
