Have you ever tried to change jobs or careers unsuccessfully? Are you
struggling to start your own business? Have you tried several diets and failed
or repeated past relationship patterns? The common factor in all of these
circumstance is fear, doubt and a lack of self-confidence. This new oil blend
addresses all the above frustrations by tapping into your deepest yearnings,
focusing your profound
energies you may not even be aware of and helping you surmount what once seemed
impossible. There is a shining sword of possibilities waiting to be plucked from
the granite stone of doubt.
When applying this oil to the temples, forehead and back of the neck you may
experience a feeling of warmth and an opening in the center of your head for new
found energies. This warmth is the opposite of the cold one feels when one is
fearful or afraid (e.g., cold feet). Don't let your hidden fears or past
experiences control your future. Take control of your destiny by activating your
"Highest Potential" with this new oil blend from Young Living Essential Oils.

In our continuing effort to provide you the best in healthy products for
pets, we are now offering online ordering of Nature's Variety Prairie pet food
on our site. See
http://www.optimumchoices.com/Natures_Variety.htm for more details. Since
our other brand, Prosperous Pet Products (PPP) no longer offers a cat food and
its selections include only kibble, we have added Nature's Variety Prairie to
our offerings. Nature's Variety offers frozen raw, freeze-dried raw, canned and
kibble for both dogs and cats. We personally use Nature's Variety frozen and
freeze-dried raw and canned with our dog. The freeze-dried raw can be broken
into pieces to make delicious, healthy training treats.
As we explained in our May newsletter (http://www.optimumchoices.com/may_2003.htm),
the best possible diet for dogs and cats is a homemade raw diet. If you don't
have time to make that, then a pre-made raw diet is the next best choice. If you
can't afford that or your pet doesn't do well on 100% raw food (which may happen
if they have been on cooked and processed food all their life), then a canned
food with added enzymes is next best. We realize that some people prefer the
convenience of kibble so we also offer the best available kibbles from PPP and
“You get what you pay for.” Is the expensive product better than the
cheaper one? Our observations follow from 20+ years in the holistic health
field, using this scenario: the local store sells two brands of the same
quantity and dosage of Vitamin Z for $10 and $18, and your healthcare
practitioner or a distributor sells a third proprietary brand for $30.
The differences between the products could include the following:
The $10 brand probably does not contain all-natural ingredients (certainly not
all organic), probably has more filler and has not done extensive testing on
their formula (often copying others). The supplement could be produced in a
hard tablet that is hard to digest and might just pass straight through you,
rather than being absorbed.
The $18 brand's company probably performs quality control, uses all-natural,
organic ingredients, has done research on the bio-availability of their
formula, and sometimes contains synergistic ingredients that make their
formula more powerful. The product is more likely produced in a gelatin
capsule that is easily dissolved in the digestive system and doesn't require all the filler
ingredients in tablets.
The $30 brand's company probably uses a proprietary method in manufacturing to
create a higher-quality product, the ingredients are top-notch and usually
include synergistic ingredients, they have done laboratory and/or clinical
testing and do not sell their brand through retail stores but only through
qualified practitioners or educated distributors.
On the other hand, the higher prices might not be due to higher quality:
The $10 brand could use all organic ingredients but they buy in large
quantities or grow their own raw materials to keep their price low.
Perhaps the $18 company uses fillers but marks the price up because of
brand name and advertising costs.
The $30 proprietary brand might be marketed at a higher price due to a
desire for higher profit for the company, practitioners and/or distributors.
So, which brand do you buy? Here are our recommendations on what to look for:
All organic ingredients, good quality control and field testing.
A company that stands behind their product and has a “no questions asked”
A proprietary formula or manufacturing process that produces a higher
quality product and better results justifies a higher price.
Supplements in gelatin capsules, loose powder or tablets that are soft
enough to chew up.
Don’t pay a higher price for expensive advertising, brand name marketing or
higher profits unless the product’s results justify the cost. Some higher priced
products do produce amazing results due to their outstanding quality and the
research behind them. Higher quality ingredients mean better results and are safer. For example,
green food supplements, such as spirulina, easily pick up heavy metals. Be sure
to buy the higher priced spirulina from a company that grows it under clean
conditions and tests for purity.
Remember, everyone’s health needs are different and everyone has a different
budget. What works for one person may not produce results in another. Find
the price level that fits your comfort zone with the brand that produces the
desired results. If your healing process is continuing using the $10 brand,
then go for it. If you have gotten absolutely no results from the $10 or $18
brand, then you might consider trying the proprietary $30 brand before
concluding the supplement doesn’t work.

This month we feature a book on how to use hydrosols, which are a by-product of
essential oil distillation. When the steam with the essential oil molecules
rises, it cools by flowing down a tube that drains into a bucket of purified
water. After the essential oils are skimmed off, the remaining purified water is
called a hydrosol of the essential oil (e.g., lavender hydrosol or lavender
floral water). The monoterpene alcohol compounds have an affinity for water,
while the phenols and ketones do not appear in hydrosols but are skimmed off
with the essential oils. This makes hydrosols much safer for use on cats, birds
and smaller pets. There are no known case histories of hydrosols or monoterpene
alcohols causing toxicity in cats. Hydrosols of chamomile and a combination of
rose, lavender, geranium and neroli are known to have a claming effect on cats.
Wounds can be cleaned with diluted lavender, rose, geranium, and chamomile oil
or their hydrosols. Itching can be alleviated using witch hazel, rose, lavender
or German chamomile.
The best recommendation for birds is to use hydrosols only and in highly diluted
form in the bird’s water like a homeopathic remedy. Suzanne Catty’s book
Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy has some excellent recipes for common bird
ailments. Most of them call for using 2–4 drops of a hydrosol in a bowl of fresh
water for the bird.
Hydrosols are best suited for animal use because of their gentler qualities than
essential oils but are also excellent for human use too (e.g., children and
