NOW Essential Oils – Heal Yourself Through Aromatherapy

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Aromatherapy, Digestive Health, Energy, Hot products, Inflammation, Migranes, Nail Fungas, NOW Essential Oils, Pain, Skin Care, Stress

EO-Purity-5Essential Oils are a staple in my household.  Sometimes we always think about supplements for healing and we forget the power of essential oils!  Hope you enjoy the post…

Some interesting facts and history of essential Oils:

 

  • žHealing practices dating back to 4000BC
  • The early 1900’s, significant period in the development of essential oils and their therapeutic applications.
  • Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, French chemist and perfumer, coined the phrase “Aromatherapy” in his first book:
    • Aromatherapie: Les Huiles Essentialles Hormaones Vegetales, was translated into English.
    • “Father of Aromatherapy”.

Maintaining consistent quality in natural products like NOW® Solutions Essential Oils is a complex process, especially as supply changes from season to season.

So how does NOW Solutions consistently assure the identity and purity of our essential oils? We utilize state-of-the-art testing and analysis as well as numerous checks and balances, including:

  • Identity and purity testing
  • Use of The Essential Oils compendium by Ernest Guenther, Ph.D. and Fenaroli’s Handbook of Flavor Ingredients, edited by George A. Burdock, Ph.D., to verify the correct essential oil species
  • Supplier/grower track record of providing high quality materials
  • Aroma comparisons
  • Review of essential oil processing to ensure that appropriate extraction methods are used
  • Appropriate cautionary and regulatory language

Because identity and purity are key attributes of any essential oil, testing for these attributes is the best way to ensure an oil’s quality.

Blending Essential Oils:

  • Use 1 oz./30ml of a skin care oil: 7-30 drops of essential oils
    • Fill 1 oz. bottle ½ way with a carrier oil then follow recipes drop ratio, and fill to top – this can be doubled
    • Do not exceed 30 drops per 1 oz.
  • Recipe ideas visit www.nowfoods.com/nowsolutions
  • Three groups
    • Top notes; highly volatile, evaporate quickly
    • Middle notes; stimulate main body systems
    • Bass/Base notes; evaporate slowly, calming

NOW Solutions identity and purity testing program uses four individual tests. To explore each test in more detail and to learn the designation between Food Grade and Therapeutic Grade oils, CLICK HERE.

Most Alive, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus stores carry the majority of the Essential Oils, and if we do not have the specific one we will get it for you!

Sierra Sil – Health You Can Feel – Amazing Joint Formula!

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Inflammation, Injuries, Joint Health, Pain

kolke-creative-vancouver-advertising-natural-products-print-media-sierrasil-retail-pos-support-00This is a post written by a guest.  I hope you enjoy!  So many of us suffer from joint pain and it does not have to be this way.  Many have found relief with Sierra Sil which is an all natural formula.  Below is the article with testimonials at the end…

In this fast paced world we have become addicted to quick fixes for every problem we face, and our health is no exception. Drugs are often taken to relieve pain without a second thought as to what it is we are putting into our bodies. Disturbingly, these quick treatments do not eliminate the cause of our pain, yet merely mask the problem by temporarily alleviating the discomfort. What is worse is that the more drugs we take, the more we rely on them to get us through each day and night.

Fortunately, there are healthy, natural alternatives to this approach that not only decrease aches and stiffness but also supports joint health and mobility. Our overall health depends on a proper mineral balance to keep our immune system strong and healthy. The lack of specific minerals can create both acute and chronic health problems that often plague us as we age. SierraSil is a unique mineral complex straight from the earth that supports the cessation of or noticeably reduces chronic inflammation.

One of the primary mechanisms of action of the SierraSil mineral complex is its suppression of those genes responsible for triggering and perpetuating chronic inflammation. SierraSil targets and reverses inflammation. This is something that many drugs are unable to do, at best providing relief from pain symptoms, not its cause.

SierraSil is ideal for adults suffering from sore joints, aches or muscle pain. It is designed for seniors seeking improved comfort in daily routines through increased flexibility and mobility.

Here are a couple of SierraSil senior users who describe the relief they have felt:

What can I say. I am in my mid seventies and SierraSil helped my knees within 2 weeks. One month I walk more, sleep better, pain in knees and ankles almost all gone after years of severe joint pain.

Why suffer try SierraSil and you will feel the difference.

- Jerald in North Bay ON

I’m 72 years old. A favourite hobby of mine has been working on old cars and trucks, but I had to give it up. I heard about SierraSil on the radio and decided to try it. I am now walking for 40 minutes every day! Initially I was very skeptical SierraSil could help me, but now I am a true believer. All I can say is try it!
