Cinnamon Essential Oils

Cinnamon Essential Oils

Cinnamon has such a delightful smell!  What do you think of when you smell Cinnamon?  I think of Christmas.  Big Pinecones that bring great smells to your home.

However, Cinnamon has  other properties to it you need to know about.  Cinnamon leaf oil comes from Cinnamomum Verum (also called Laurus Cinnamomum).  The Cinnamon tree can be distinguished by its small, white flowers, shiny, leathery green leaves, and purple oval berries. Its papery, pale brown bark has thick quills that roll inside one another and are gathered every two years.

Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to man.   I learned it was part of a mixture in what was know as “The Holy Anointing Oil”  That was used in the anointing of  holy people and could not be used by anyone else.  According to Wikipedia
The holy anointing oil described in Exodus 30:22-25 was created from:[2][3]
Pure myrrh (מר דרור mar deror) 500 shekels (about 6 kg)
Sweet cinnamon (קינמון בשם kinnemon besem) 250 shekels (about 3 kg)
Kaneh bosem (קְנֵה-בֹשֶׂם kaneh bosm) 250 shekels (about 3 kg)
Cassia (קדה kiddah) 500 shekels (about 6 kg)
Olive oil (שמן זית shemen zayit) one hin (about 5 quarts according to Adam Clarke; about 4 liters according to Shiurei Torah, 7 liters according to the Chazon Ish)

These are some of the things that our 100% Organic Oil can do.  I am also adding another oil mixture called Everyday A Holiday because it has Cinnamon in it and we will get to the rest of the oils in the blend.

























































Hope you have enjoyed this post about Cinnamon and Everyday  A Holiday
Do you love the smell as much as I do?

Eucalyptus Essential Oils

Eucalyptus Essential Oils

Eucalyptus Essential Oils have an interesting history.  These oils come from The Eucalyptus Tree in Austraila.  The Aborigines have known for many generations of the healing properties of these oils.  They refer to it as “Kino”. A story is a young man almost severed his finger and his father who had studied  Aboriginal folk medicine advised his son to wrap the wound tightly in Eucalyptus leaves after it was stitched.  The Doctor who looked at later was amazed it was healing so quickly and with no signs of infection.

Reports of this spread throughout Australia and pharmacists like Joseph Bosisto began tinkering with the idea of commercially producing eucalyptus oil in 1852. Soon thereafter, the leaves of Eucalyptus Radiata were first distilled near Melbourne.

Some small towns in Australia discovered that eucalyptus oil could be converted into a gas to light their homes, hotels and shops. Little did they know that they stumbled upon one of the most powerful forms of natural medicine ever.

Today’s research includes studies that show it can help with the drug resistance to some bacterial infections like TB.  As some of these infections are building up a tolerance. Especially for regions like Africa, which are still highly affected by HIV/AIDS.

Now here are some other benefits:

Lavender Essential Oils

Lavender Essential Oils

Lavender is one of the most used Essential Oils .     It is most  known for how it can relax you.  It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.  Lavender is one of the most versatile herbs.  Its various health benefits range from pain relief and mental clarity to use as an anti-bacterial cleanser and a natural deodorant.  Lavender can be applied as an essential oil, dried herb, distilled in water, and as (edible) therapeutic-grade oil.

These oils can protect your body from toxins.  One of the most dangerous and most common risk factor for every disease that affects Americans, free radicals (toxins, chemicals, pollutants, etc.) are responsible for shutting down your immune system and can cause unbelievable damage to your body.  Your body can become overwhelmed and has a hard time keeping up with the deluge of toxins.

One thing to note if you are pregnant or nursing you should check with your Doctor before using this any form.  It is considered an emmenagogue, meaning that it promotes menstruation and blood flow to the pelvic area.

Rosemary Essential Oils

Rosemary Essential Oils

Rosemary smells really good and as you will see can do some amazing things but first lets get a little history on Essential oils.

For the next little while I will be blogging about Essential Oils.  I am fascinated with them.  What they can do and how they are used.  I have a friend Jana Szabo who is a International Trained Aromatherapist.  The company that we buy our oils from is so lucky to have her.  She has provided many hours of training to the company!  I try not to abuse her friendship but sometimes it is hard not to ask questions.

I recently got a new Diffuser  and am using a couple of oils for some aches and pains and one to be going while I sleep.

Essential Oils have been mentioned in the Bible but actually have a history back to 1500 BC.  History shows that the art of Essential Oils was lost until the early 20th century when they were started being used again.

What Is Rosemary Essential Oil?

Related to mint and looking like lavender,  has leaves like flat pine needles touched with silver. It boasts of a woodsy, citrus-like fragrance that has become a feature of many kitchens, gardens, and apothecaries worldwide.

The Virgin Mary is said to have spread her blue cloak over a rosemary bush as she rested, and the white flowers turned blue. The shrub came to be known as the “Rose of Mary.”

Rosemary was used by the Egyptians, Hebrews, Greeks, Romans, and used in the Middle Ages to ward off evil and protect against the plague.  It was a favorite of Paracelsus, who was a physician and botanist.  He valued Rosemary Oil because of its healing of sensitive organs like the liver, heart, and brain.

Rosemary Oil Uses and Benefits

You can use fresh rosemary-infused oil on your salads as a delicious dressing. The herb itself has a thousand uses, and it extremely hardy and therefore easy to grow and maintain whether inside or out. You can add an entire sprig to your soups for a unique flavor.  Rosemary oil has been extensively used and studied since ancient times for a variety of health benefits. Today, it is included in many medicinal preparations, with many potential offerings.








Hope you found this information helpful.  I am of course showing toy our product.  It says it is Spanish but all that means is it is from Spain and Morocco and is of the highest quality.

Hidden Fluoride

Hidden Fluoride

Hidden Fluoride when you think of fluoride what is the first thing that comes to mind?  If someone asked me that question I would answer toothpaste and drinking water.  I was watching a show this afternoon (Yes I will admit I watch TV) and it was brought to my attention that Ice Berg Lettuce contains up to 180 times more fluoride than your toothpaste! I was appalled to think this might be true.  I started researching  and found some interesting things.

Here are some hidden fluoride facts.  First of all it is mainly non-organic foods because of the  widespread use of Fluoride Based Pesticides.  What is mainly used is :The fluoride-based pesticide called cryolite is essentially sodium aluminum fluoride, which is favored by growers for its high level of effectiveness at killing produce loving insects. Cryolite (a white or colorless mineral made up of fluoride, sodium and aluminum in crystal form) is also well known for its ability to adhere to produce in a thick layer of ‘protection’ – a layer that is extremely difficult – if not impossible – to remove before consumption.

Produce temporarily stored in warehouses is also treated with a gas fumigant, used to kill insects and rodents – and it penetrates produce completely, making it impossible to wash off later. This fumigant leaves extremely high levels of fluoride residue in and on stored foods.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) currently allows up to 7 parts per million of fluoride on more than 30 fruits and vegetables that are treated with cryolite. It is applied as dusts, granulars or powders and is applied by ground or aerial spray.

  • apricots
  • beets
  • blackberries
  • broccoli
  • brussel sprouts
  • cabbage, cauliflower
  • citrus fruits
  • collards
  • cranberries
  • cucumbers
  • eggplants
  • grapes
  • kale
  • lettuce
  • melons
  • nectarines
  • peaches
  • peppers
  • plums
  • pumpkins
  • radishes
  • raspberries
  • squash
  • strawberries
  • tomatoes
  • turnip

Due to the fact that cryolite is easily absorbed by crops, people who then consume treated produce are ingesting an unknown amount of fluoride. According to, “Cryolite contains aluminofluoride ions that shed fluoride ions, which then pass through the blood-brain barrier and contaminate brain tissue.”

Fluoride has been linked to decreased IQ in children, and even the United States government is calling for lower levels of fluoride to be added to United States water supplies. Perhaps the next big hurdle in the fight against fluoride will be within the food industry.

Asbestos Do Your Children’s Toys Have It?


Asbestos should we even have to worry about this proven killer?

This from National Cancer Institute

You should really look at all of the information there.  How our government is allowing this to happen.

Asbestos has been classified as a known human carcinogen (a substance that causes cancer) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the EPA, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (2, 3,7, 8). Studies have shown that exposure to asbestos may increase the risk of lung cancer and mesothelioma (a relatively rare cancer of the thin membranes that line the chest and abdomen). Although rare, mesothelioma is the most common form of cancer associated with asbestos exposure. In addition to lung cancer and mesothelioma, some studies have suggested an association between asbestos exposure and gastrointestinal and colorectal cancers, as well as an elevated risk for cancers of the throat, kidney, esophagus, and gallbladder(3, 4). However, the evidence is inconclusive.


Even after all they know about  Asbestos it is still legal.
Most alarming to me is it found in children toys.  Other
products also here is a small list:

  • CSI Fingerprint Investigation Kit
  • Six colors of clay in Art Skills’ Clay Bucket
  • Three varieties of Ja-Ru Toy Clay
  • DAP 33 window glazing, made in the USA, and purchased at Lowe’s and Home Depot
  • DAP Crack Shot spackle paste, made in the USA, and purchased at Lowe’s and Home Depot
  • Gardner Leak Stopper Roof Patch made in the USA, and purchased at Lowe’s, Home Depot and Wal-Mart
  • Scotch Duct Tape: High Performance, made in Canada, and purchased at Wal-Mart.AsbestosNotice the CSI stuff is powder.  What is the chances the child
    may put it in their mouth or at the very least breath the powder.
    This product unless pulled from the shelves is expected to be a
    top seller during the holiday season.
  • There is no safe levels if Asbestos but our government does not see it that way.  There are a multitude of lawsuits going on right now.

Mesothelioma — a cancer that most commonly attacks the lungs and abdomen — was profoundly rare until industrial and commercial companies expanded the use of asbestos during the 20th century. After spending decades investigating the disease and its causes, medical researchers identified one primary culprit: Exposure to asbestos.

As a former Real Estate agent I know if Asbestos is found in a
house they send in removal people in big white suits and head
gear that protects them from breathing it in while they remove it.
So why is it OK for it to be in other products we use everyday?
Even more important what are we doing to our children and
what are the long term effect?

I hope you have found this helpful and has given some awareness we still have to be vigilant about what is in the products we use and especially what our children
play with.

myself about health issues and in turn educate others.




Meditation Change Your Neural Pathways

Meditation Change Your Neural Pathways

Meditation  have you tried it? 
In addition to the age-old spiritual benefits, thousands of research studies have demonstrated that meditation increases awareness, well-being, relieves anxiety, depression and other mental health problems; increases mental clarity, and reduces the stress associated with many medical problems.

The problem with traditional meditation it can take years to master.  Years before you start feeling the benefits.  Most people who try meditation give up rather quickly because they don’t feel the results for so long.


I started Meditation back in the late 70’s.  I always enjoyed it.  I even had some good experiences but I never really felt like it was something that was a permanent feeling.   I still had a quick temper and could be very mouthy.  Open mouth inserts foot.  Never stopping to think about what I was saying.

When I moved to Las Vegas and started working face to face with the public instead of on the phone (where I could mute them if I had comments) I realized it was 100% more stressful and with my temper I was going to get myself in trouble. After all, I worked in baggage service and people were not all that kind when they came to see me.

Neural Pathways

I went looking for a solution.  I found out about neuro-technology.
WOW, what wonderful technology, it changes brain wave patterns and creates new neural pathways in the brain.  I am not going to give you all the science behind but there are many studies.  From my research, I found Holosync  through a company called Centerpointe Research  Institute.  A man named Bill Harris had discovered how to take the research and turn it into CD’s  that take you deep into meditation from the very beginning.

It changed my life, in a very short time my hair-triggered temper is gone.  I am peaceful all the time.  There is nothing like it.  If you would like to try Holosync just click on the image in the sidebar right.

Afformations Vs Affirmations

Afformations vs Affirmations Which Are Best?

Afformations vs Affirmations


Afformations vs Affirmations which are more believable for your brain?  

I have to thank my friend Bob Miller for mentioning this in one of the discussions we were having.  It was in a group called Motivational Manifesto where we discussed all the chapters in Brendon Burchard’s book.  Bob made a good point, you should speak as if it already is.  So I looked into Afformations and found it all quite interesting.
In 1997 Noah St John wrote a book named Afformations The Miracle Of Positive Self-Talk.  If you would care to read it you can get it Afformations®: The Miracle of Positive Self-Talk on Amazon.   Before Bob passed away a few weeks ago.  (We miss you so much, Bob.) he did an interview with Noah St. John.

Affirmations often do not work because the statement you are repeating is not in alignment with what your subconscious believes. Your brain is like a computer and is a problem-solving mechanism and it wants to solve a problem.  If you make statements as affirmations  such as “I have all the money I need.”  If it is true the sub-conscious agrees and nothing needs to be done.  If it is false the brain disagrees but there is nothing for it to do.  No data to sift through.

So why do Afformations work?  It works because you are asking empowering questions that change you subconscious thought patterns from Negative to Positive!   What every problem you will ever be faced with really is, a question that has not been answered yet.  By converting Affirmations into Afformations by asking questions you plant a seed in the sub-conscious .  Your sub-conscious mind will then work tirelessly to answer the question.

So, in conclusion, I say turn your affirmations into questions and let your sub-conscious find you the answers!   Why Am I Able To Help More People Every day?   Why Am I Unstoppable ?  

Let me know what you think of this? Are you going to try it?  If so would love to hear your results.  Get on my newsletter for more tips and thoughts!

Dirty 7 What To Avoid For An Alkaline Body

Dirty 7 What To Avoid For An Alkaline Body

Dirty 7 and there a lot more things that are bad for your body but these are some that contribute to your body being acidic.  When your body in an acidic state you are leaving it wide open for disease.
Acidic Foods and things within the foods are everywhere.
Here is a list of Dirty 7 things to absolutely avoid if you want to
get an Alkalized body.  In an Alkalized body, fat and disease
can not live!!

Dirty 7








1. Soft Drinks:  Regular or diet.  Double whammy on both
Regular contains sugar and diet contain the bad sweeteners.
Never touch colas, lemonades, sports drinks and other fizzy, carbonated beverages. Full of sugar, chemicals, sweeteners, and ingredients that are actually known and proven as being dangerous for human health ( phosphoric acid). I remember as a kid going into
the local drugstore that had a soda fountain in it and getting a
Cherry Phosphate drink.  Oh, my I must have been killing myself
even back then.

2. Ice Cream:  All dairy is bad for you.  No matter what you have been told it does not support strong bones but just the opposite.
Ice Cream is the worst.  This was found in a Forbes article on
Vanilla Ice Cream
If you’re a label-reader like me, you may see castoreum listed on vanilla & raspberry ice cream. Ick factor: What they don’t say on the label is that castoreum is the anal secretions & urine from a beaver. While not known to be harmful, knowing there’s beaver pee in your ice cream may help you cut empty calories!

3. Sugar:   Now, I know this isn’t exactly an easy one to give up  or get away from since it is hidden in so many foods under so many names!  It’s at the root cause of all sickness and disease.  All sugars cause a rapid rise in blood sugar, which then creates an environment for the creation of bacteria, yeast and mold within the body (i.e. a hugely acidic digestive system, candida overgrowth, digestive issues, mal-absorption of nutrients and any sickness or disease you can think of).The worst thing is, of course, the more sugar the body gets, the more acidic it gets, and so the more it craves – to keep feeding these acidic microforms.  sugar is more addictive than cocaine – and so the only way to cut this off is to alkalize the body and slowly transition away.
Dirty 7






4. Hydrogenated and Partially Hydrogenated Fats/Trans Fats:  We all know just how bad the bad fats are, and we’ve been told about them for many decades (clogged arteries, heart disease, cancer etc). Animal fats, cheap vegetable oils, butter and (worse, much worse) margarine, trans fats and a lot of saturated fats (coconut aside) are all absolutely shocking for our health.  Trans fatty acids, also known as trans fat, is an artery-clogging fat that is formed when vegetable oils are hardened into margarine or shortening. It’s found in all of the most acid-forming foods – takeaways, fried foods, refined foods, cakes, biscuits, chocolates and chocolate snacks, chips, pizzas . The consumption of trans fats is one of the main causes of the current obesity epidemic and absolutely a huge reason for the diabetes epidemic. Trans fats are proven to increase blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol, while lowering levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), known as “good” cholesterol.

5. Monosodium glutamate:
Or MSG as we know it another name  sodium glutamate.  The FDA has stated that it is safe.  Right…but it still put out this statement

“Studies have shown that the body uses glutamate, an amino acid, as a nerve impulse transmitter in the brain and that there are glutamate-responsive tissues in other parts of the body, as well.

Abnormal function of glutamate receptors has been linked with certain neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s chorea. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain.”

Hidden everywhere in chips and flavoring and microwave dinners.
Look on the labels for these names Autolyzed Yeast, Calcium Caseinate, Gelatin, Glutamate, Glutamic Acid, Hydrolyzed Protein, Monopotassium Glutamate, Sodium Caseinate, Textured Protein, Yeast Extract, Yeast Food, Yeast Nutrient.

6. Yeast:  The more yeast we put in our bodies the sicker we will
become.  Your body is in a constant state of Acidity .  Found in
Yeasts from bread, pasta, alcohol, baked goods and anything that is made from yeast can cause huge microform overgrowth!  The stress of maintaining a level of alkalinity is just too much and so we get sick, tired and full of disease.

7. Sweeteners:  This includes any sweeteners  except Organic Stevia. ( there are a few others they say are good also like agave but I have not used them.   Whichever brand you use you’ll be ingesting one or more of the following: aspartame, saccharin, neotame, sucralose, acesulfame and or cyclamates. These are all highly acidic to the body. For instance, when ingested, aspartame breaks down into formaldehyde in the body!  My grandmother whom I adored died at age 59 from cancer in her bowels.  She drank a ton of tea a day with saccharin I just know that is what caused her cancer.   

Want to get ALKALIZED?  I have just the thing!  Get on my NEWSLETTER and let me tell you what I have got that will improve your health.  There is a lot more things you need to know about than just the Dirty 7.

I hope you have gotten value from this post.  The Dirty 7 is very important for you to know about.  If so please do me the kindness  of leaving a comment and sharing 🙂

Constipation A Real Problem For Many

Constipation is a real problem for many people.

Constipation is a real problem for many people.

Constipation is not something that is talked about  very often.  However, the person suffering from constipation is miserable.  What is to be done?

I was one of those people.  For all of my adult life.  So you start with laxatives.  There are many out there but of course, E-Lax is the best known.  ( There is also store brands that are supposed to be equal and I have used them also.)  But let’s look at what I was doing to my body using E-Lax.
Active Ingredients sound OK
each pill contains: calcium 50 mg
sodium free
It is the inactive ingredients that are the problem.  The ones with the stars are on the Toxic Ten List.  ( there are more than 10 )
acacia, alginic acid, carnauba wax, colloidal silicon dioxide, dibasic calcium phosphate, iron oxides, **magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, potassium hydroxide, pregelatinized starch, **propylene glycol, shellac, sodium benzoate, **sodium lauryl sulfate, **stearic acid, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide
Notice Shellac what in the heck is that doing in there?  Sucrose is just another name for Sugar.
So these only work for a few times and then your body gets used to them.  So for the next little while, you use stool softeners and suppositories .   Let’s see what are in them.

Stool Softners:
Inactive Ingredients:** Polyethylene glycol 400, gelatin, glycerin, sorbitol, **propylene glycol, **methylparaben, titanium dioxide, **FD&C Red No. 40, D&C Red No. 33, propylparaben, **FD&C Yellow No. 6. Colace Liquid, 1%, contains the following: Active Ingredient: each mL contains 10 mg of docusate sodium.

purified water, sodium hydroxide, **stearic acid

Next, we try things like  Metamucil

With psyllium as the main ingredient in all Metamucil products, the remaining ingredients are inactive. They are used as coloring, flavoring, binding or preservation agents. Sucrose, **FD&C Yellow No. 6 and citric acid are a few of the inactive ingredients. Sucrose is used as a flavoring. **FD&C Yellow No. 6 is a coloring agent, giving the powder form its yellow-orange color. Citric acid is added as a preservative.

When everything stopped working I went to my Pharmacist  and he told me to try Prune Juice and Milk Of Magnesia.

NDC 0904-0788-14  MAJOR – Milk of Magnesia – Saline Laxative – ORIGINAL FLAVOR – effective overnight relief – cramp free – stimulant free – sugar-free –
What concerns me here is Saline Laxative
Read this article  about them right here

What  is my point of all this?  We blindly put stuff in our bodies every day.  We don’t check out  what we are doing to ourselves.  This may have been an uncomfortable subject to speak about.  It is not pleasant but an important one because these products that we are using are causing damage to our insides.

I have found something that is 100% Toxin free and Organic. They are called Earth Greens.  I have been drinking them since Aug. of 2015.  They have never quit working and with each scoop I am getting 5.5 LBS. of Organic Vegtable.  They have been a God send for me.
