Cleansing Short and Simple

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

I have a friend from years ago who did a cleanse at the beginning of each new season.  I’ve done cleanses over the years and can verify that they are helpful.  They liked doing these cleanses for similar reasons to my own.  More energy, healthier skin, and to rid our bodies of toxins.

One of the reasons that I find cleansing to be important is to clear out toxins from our liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and skin.  In order for me to do that in my life I’ve chosen to use a product called Zendocrine.  You can take one capsule with morning and evening meals.

Using Essential Oils In Your Home

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Using Essential Oils  In Your Home can be easy and become your way of taking charge and becoming more health conscious.

I have been using essential oils in my home for many years now on a daily basis.  They have made an enormous transformation to our health and wellness.

My education first came when I took a year long course by Jane Buckle Ph.D., RN.

I have continued my education since that time and I am continuing to learn more and to put these precious oils to work.   As I do this, I’m gaining more understanding about their potency, and the chemistry behind these wonderful oils.

The constituents in therapeutic grade essential oils are different from other oils.  These essential oils are pure without contaminants.  I choose these oils for myself, my family, and my friends for two reasons, one is for their quality, meaning potency, and the healing properties that cerified pure oils like Frankincense, Myrrh, Lavender, Lime and Lemon  have on our bodies.

Secondly you get what you pay for so the investment is well worth it, you are investing in your future for healthy aging by using certified pure essential oils.  Have you ever heard the phrase you get what you pay for.  Well that is exactly my point, that is why I choose to use certified pure essential oils for myself, my family, and my friends. Contact me @ crgeiger@idealscentsllc.com for more information on how you can purchase these oils at wholesale prices.

Pure essential oils are very potent therefore you don’t need as much.  The benefits are too numerable to mention all at once.

I recommend the continued education of essential oils.  They have put me in charge of the varying complaints that go on in a household.

Here are a few suggestions: There are many more oils that can be used for these complaints, and I’m just naming a few.

**I use Grapefruit Peel, Lemon Peel, Peppermint Plant, Ginger Root, and Cinnamon Bark essential oils to curb my appetite and help with my metabolism.

**Feed the Brain with these certified pure essential oils  Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus,

**Help your Respiratory system with these therapeutic grade oils: Laurel Leaf, Peppermint Plant, Eucalyptus Leaf/ Stem, Melaleuca Leaf, Lemon Peel, Ravensara Leaf, Cardamom Seed essential oils.

Cleaning and Disinfecting with Essential oils…Use a couple of drops of lemon & melaleuca in a spray bottle to clean bathrooms and kitchens.

There are many uses and recipes for the use of essential oils.  I’m experimenting in the kitchen with oils like cinnamon and clove.   The holidays are coming and we can use these oils to spice up our traditional recipes or have new ones.

I make a Foaming Hand Wash and I use two tablespoons of Dr. Bonner’s unscented Castile Liquid Soap, one tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil and 10 drops of my favorite certified pure essential oils.

I suggest one to two drops of essential oils with  2 tablespoons of a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil this will be beneficial when applying them to the body.   These oils are very potent and more essential oil is not necessary.  It would be better to apply the therapeutic grade essential oils more frequently than to use too much at one time.  Essential oils safety is something I take very seriously.

When applying essential oils to large areas of the body, diluting them with a carrier oil is best so that they are gentle to the skin, the recommendation is to dilute the oils as follows 15%-30% carrier oil is suggested.

There are several ways to use them.  One of the fastest ways to absorb them is when they are applied to the feet because of the large pores.

For Infants dilute one to three drops of essential oils to one tablespoon of a carrier oil.  For Children 2-5 yrs of age one to three drops to one teaspoon of a carrier oil.  The application of these oils for Infants and Children should be on the feet, then add socks or to the back, as well as a diffuser.

One of my favorite ways to use essential oils is to diffuse them throughout the day in my home.

Please note these recommendations are for use with therapeutic grade essential oils.  Please use with caution and keep out of the reach of children.

Magnificent Mangosteen the “SuperFruit”

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Mangosteen when the antioxidant-rich power of  it is combined with vitamins, plant-sourced minerals, organic glyconutrient-rich aloe vera and decaffeinated organic green tea, the result is the ultimate nutritional foundation.

Because the mangosteen is combined with vitamins and minerals our digestive systems utilize the liquid nutrition properly. It benefits the human body so extensively when it is taken in adequate amounts daily.

Parents we have a product for children too.

It is called NEXT.   The formula was specifically designed for children ages 2-12.  With the right amount of vitamins and minerals along with the superfruit mangosteen and it’s creamy orange flavor it gives their growing bodies the immune support that they need.  The proper nutrition for our children is critical to their overall health and wellness.  In order for them to have peek performance in school makes the NEXT product the nutritional support they need to carry them into their adolescent years.

Mangosteen, known as the “Queen of all fruits” has been used for centuries by Asian health practitioners for its nutritional benefits and delicious flavor.

The Mangosteen plant has the micro plant nutrients that our bodies need. These nutrients are called xanthones.

Vemma” represents the most complex liquid nutritional program that I have ever seen!” says Dr. John Edwards, Bsc, MBBS of Healthy Oakland Clinic.

So many amazing scientific studies have been done to prove the antioxidant power of mangosteen.  Here is one from Pub Med.

“Potential of xanthones from tropical fruit mangosteen as anti-cancer agents”

The antioxidant effect of Vemma has been shown to enhance immune function.  As noted in the clinical studies it proved in the studies that Vemma showed significant improvements in immune markers, superior antioxidant absorption and a lowering of C-reactive protein (CRP), which points to its beneficial effects on overall health and wellness.

The recent clinical studies that Vemma has done will prove to the skeptic that mangosteen and minerals in the Vemma formula is a powerful way to change your overall health and wellness.

Our immune systems need help on a daily basis and the Vemma formula has proven 100% to have helped myself and my family.

Dr. Geiger, the OilMD has written a book called “The Sweet Smell of Success and he shares the importance of juice therapy.

Healthy Immune System Needed to Protect Against Swine Flu

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Immune Health

The majority of health issues can be related to a weak immune system.  Your immune system loses its abilities silently.

Free radicals are bad. They cause cell mutations, damage immune function, cause wrinkles and aging and are a contributing cause behind many diseases including ancer, heart disease, arthritis, alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, and others. Free radical damage is a factor behind almost every known disease according to some researchers

So one key to keeping a strong immune system  is to forfeit the white sugar, white flour, and the processed foods, and instead go for the lean proteins, veggies and fruits.

You are looking for high antioxidants.  Antioxidants are found in plant pigments.  Let me explain further.

These plant pigments are more than coloring agents for fruit juices, wine, and other beverages. They also contain an array of health-promoting benefits.

Eaten in large amounts they will protect our immune systems, anthocyanins are antioxidant flavonoids that protect many body systems.

Anthocyanins possess a strong ability to work deeply in the human body.  These essential phytonutrient pigments are the chemical components that give the intense color to many fruits and vegetables.  They provide powerful protection and have diverse physiological effects that are possible through their powerful antioxidant abilities.

The powerful acai berry takes this to a whole new level.  While anthocyanins are why many doctors and health professionals recommend drinking red wine, the acai berry contains as much as 33 times more anthocyanins that grapes.

Be a friend to yourself and take care of your immune system by eating healthy, drinking plenty of acai, green tea, water, and eat lots of foods that contain that antioxidant protection that you need to stay healthy.
