Let me tell you about the oils I have chosen to talk about in this particular E-Book. I have decided to base myself on a Young Living kit called the ‘Essential 7’ which groups the seven most popular and easy to use oils.

LAVENDER is the most versatile of all essential oils. Therapeutic grade lavender has been highly regarded for the skin, and has been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects. Wait to see all you can do with this one! LEMON has antiseptic-like properties and contains compounds that have been studied for their effects on immune function. CAUTION: Citrus oils should NOT be applied to skin that will be exposed to direct sunlight or ultraviolet light within 72 hours. PEPPERMINT is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Jean Valnet, MD, studied peppermint’s effect on the liver and respiratory systems. JOY — is an exotic blend of Lemon, mandarin, Bergamot, ylang ylang, rose, Rosewood, Geranium, Palarosa, Roman chamomile and jasmine that produces an uplifting magnetic energy and brings joy to the heart

PANAWAY—is a blend of Wintergreen, Clove, Peppermint and Helichrysum. This blend was created by Gary Young following an injury that severely tore the ligaments in his leg. PEACE & CALMING — is a gentle, fragrant blend of Tangerine, Orange, ylang ylang, Patchouly and Blue Tansy specifically designed for diffusing. It promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace, helping to calm tensions and uplift spirits PURIFICATION — is an antiseptic blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaleuca, Lanandin and Myrtle formulated for diffusing to purify and cleanse the air and neutralize mildew, cigarette smoke and disagreeable odors. THIEVES* — Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who protected themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. The proprietary Thieves® oil blend was university tested and found to be highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. (*) This is where I cheat a little and add another blend to the 7 above mentioned oils. Te Thieves blend is not part of the Essential 7 kit but it should definitely be part of your must have oils. I believe this blend to be one of the most powerful and effective there is for 3 fighting infections and viruses of all kinds and helping support the immune system.

GUIDELINES FOR THE SAFE USE OF YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS

1. Always keep a bottle of pure vegetable mixing oil or any pure vegetable oil handy when using essential oils. Vegetable oils dilute essential oils if they cause discomfort or skin irritation. DO NOT USE WATER as essential oils are non-water soluble: using water will only spread the essential oil over a larger area. 2. Keep bottles of essential oils tightly closed and store them in a cool location away from light. If stored properly, essential oils will maintain their potency for many years. 3. Keep essential oils out of the reach of children. Treat them as you would any product for therapeutic use. 4. Do not use essential oils rich in menthol (such as peppermint) on the throat or neck area of children under 30 months of age. 5. Lemon, bergamot, orange, grapefruit, tangerine, White Angelica and other citrus oils may cause a rash or darker pigmentation if applied to skin exposed to direct sunlight or UV rays within 3-4 days of use. 6. Keep essential oils away from eye area and do not put into ears. Do not handle contact lenses or rub eyes with essential oils on fingers. 7. Pregnant women should consult their health care professional before using essential oils containing constituents with hormone-like activity, such as Clary sage, Idaho tansy, juniper and fennel. 8. Epileptics and those with high blood pressure should consult their health care professional before using essential oils. Avoid hyssop, fennel, and Idaho tansy oils. 9. People with allergies should test a small amount of oil on a small area of sensitive skin, such as the inside of the arm, before applying the oil on other areas. The bottom of the feet is one of the safest, most effective places to use essential oils. 10. Before taking GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) essential oils internally, always dilute with an oil-soluble liquid like honey, olive oil or soy milk. 11. Do not add undiluted essential oils directly to bath water. Use Bath Gel Base as a dispersing agent for oils in the bath.

...Sheyla I Lopez Professor Cormier English 101 March 4 2013 The Importance of Environment One of the most important reasons for us to take care of our environment is because it is our home. This is where we live, eat and raise our children. If we don’t start taking care of our home we are going to end up homeless. Articles like “The New Wilderness Land Grab” by Elizabeth Arnold and “The Obligation to Endure” by Rachel Carson talks more about the importance of protecting our environment. Even though this two articles talk about the same subject, they show two different ways to protect Earth. Elizabeth Arnolds focused more on the importance of protecting wildlife while Rachel Carson focuses more on how chemical pesticides affect plants, animals and humans. Both authors are very concerned about the importance of the environment they just have their own special way to contribute with Earth. In this two articles Arnold and Carson have a very different way of writing. On article “The New Wilderness Land Grab” Arnold uses an analytical and very formal way of writing. Elizabeth Arnold uses logos to argument her point. Logos is how writers use evidence, logic and reason to argument their point. Arnold introduces her article by saying “In a closet size office with a sloping floor in down town Durando Colorado, a phone rings off the hook. But Brian O’Donell and Melissa Watson coordinators of the ten month old Wilderness Support Center, are long gone” (1). The author is trying to......

...People do not care for the environment. How far is this true? About 1% of U.S. landfill space is full of disposable diapers, which take 500 years to decompose. If we did not cared about the environment, the earth would be a place filled with so much pollution we would barely be able to breathe as we would not take any action to stop the pollution. As only individuals do not play their part in protecting the environment and instead harms the environment for them to reap their own benefits. However, as a community, many people work together to try and change the way of doing things to benefit the environment, such as implementing more policies to ensure the survival of marine life or, finding methods to better the environmental situation. I agree only to a small extent that people, both individuals and as an international community, do not care for the environment, be in on land, air or sea. There are many situations in which people could choose to ignore the harm that is being done to the environment, and not care about what the outcomes may be. However, because we as people care, we have implemented many measures to protect our environment. For example in Lake Chad, located between the borders of Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria, there is a environmental issue of desertification where fertile land becomes similar to that of a desert. The UNHCR and its partners, including the Chad government, are addressing the effects of climate change with programmes aimed at......

...for all organisations to acknowledge the influence of their environments and, in turn, the impact of organisations on their context. We have argued that the commercial environment is characterised primarily by the growing trend toward globalisation. To a much greater extent than ever before we live in a global village where goods and services will be produced wherever they can be provided at the least cost. Consumers in the West in particular are getting used to the idea of products being available for almost unbelievably low prices. Business responses to the ‘green’ environment seem to be at something of a ‘tipping point’, with successive estimates of the severity of the problem seeming to indicate ‘sooner’ and ‘worse’. There are plenty of examples of enlightened behaviour but the degree of adjustment being achieved seems more akin to reducing the rate of acceleration than actually hitting the brakes. The ethical environment does seem to be developing, but the transition model that seems to apply to emerging economies would suggest that the export of western ‘norms’ will lag behind the growing industrialisation for the foreseeable future. None of the above is meant to sound in any way fatalistic. All three environments are changing, and human activity is the agent of change in every case. Organisations make choices, people make choices. Humanity has grown to the point where it can make major changes to its environment, it now needs to decide what those changes should be....

Strategies adopted by corporations against environmentalism: Corporations advertised their views against environmentalism, through telephones, letter writing campaign and through using media, for those activities corporations took advice from professionals and spent huge money for campaigning Throughout 1970s and 1980s new environmental legislation was legally postponed by the activities of corporation, but at the end of 1980s public concern about environment rose due to local pollution events such as pollution of Sydney beaches by sewage and scientific discovery of Ozone depletion, these all events made regulatory agencies very tougher, so government enacted new environmental laws and regulations During 1990s, corporations formed front groups for manipulating public opinion, lobbying politicians and thereby convincing politicians to oppose environmental reforms Corporations followed strategic counseling to change public and government perceptions of environmental problems and thereby encountering environmentalists Firm groups helped corporations by marginalizing, alienating environmentalists who were refused donations and job offers and moreover these groups labeled environmentalists as......

...number of years, the planet and its environment have strived to meet the demands of the increasing growth in populations, global warming, and altered habitats, which has produced a global impact on the sense of balance between nature and man. The struggles amongst the environment do not affect one group of individuals or living entity; the whole planets population is concerned by environmental troubles. Each living entity on the planet may affect the environment. In order for individuals to preserve the planet, assistant in resolving environmental problems, and attain sustainability of the planet as it grows, a person should know the fundamental principles of environmental science. Environmental science may be described as the study of human connections with the environment. It is the interdisciplinary subject that blends knowledge from several disciplines such as geography, biology, chemistry, physics, geology, economics, cultural anthropology, sociology (particularly demography, the study of populations), natural resource management, engineering, agriculture, law, ethics, and politics (Berg & Hager, 2009, p1.4).

...There is a growing environmental awareness amongst stakeholders, individuals and communities in Thailand. This increase in knowledge and awareness has been, by and large, the result of campaigns and education programmes run by major public interest groups concerned with the environment. These include non-governmental organizations (NGOs) at the international, regional and national levels, as well as groups concerned with the empowerment of marginalized sections of society, such as women, indigenous peoples, and youth groups, and other community based organizations. . Major public interest groups are increasingly contributing efforts towards sustainable development through participation, advocacy, demonstration projects, monitoring and research, as well as cooperation and networking with other NGOs and government departments. This chapter reviews the contributions made by such groups to the promotion of environmental knowledge, awareness and action in the region. Traditionally, community based organizations played an important role in the management of common property resources such as forests and fisheries in the Asian and Pacific Region. Although over successive years their role was reduced by governments in some countries, recent years have seen a re-emergence of community involvement and the development and growth of NGOs, youth, women and indigenous people’s groups and associations of farmers and businessmen. NGOs have, in particular, played an important role in......

...12-012751 With our ever increasing population rate, so comes with it an increase in the damage we are inflicting on our planet. Often we hear of concerning environmental issues that are happening around us, but how much do we know and understand about these issues? Because these issues affect us and our future generations directly, it really is in our own best interest to ensure that we are fully informed and also that the sources that we receive information from are accepted in a critical manner. In this essay it is my intention to highlight one of the many environmental issues we are currently facing, to view it both locally and globally, and to critically analyse both sides of the argument presented. Furthermore, to view how social environments are directly affected by the issue and to look at a media campaign that it relates to it considering constructionism, claims making and framing. And then to conclude, having viewed all points, what my new (if at all different) assumptions are. Hunting, to survive, has been a part of human culture for centuries, in the past it has been a necessary tool and skill, however, today most people live in a world where it is no longer a required in order to provide basic needs to our families. Trophy hunting, as a sport, can be dated as far back to the early 1800s in southern and central Europe.

...asparagus which is what the region is famous for. Many farmers are afraid that the harsh Spring weather could eventually affect their profits. The weather changes described in the report by BBC news can be one of many consequences that come along with global warming. As mentioned in lecture, the greenhouse effect is a good thing but when too much carbon dioxide gets trapped in our atmosphere then a problem arises. Extreme temperatures changes are one of the more obvious changes wrought by global warming. The trapped carbon dioxide in our atmosphere may cause an unusually cold spring or an unusually warm winter. More specifically, in this case it is an unusually cold spring which has many consequences not only on the environment but on the individuals that live in that environment. Even though a rise in temperature is a common attribute to global warming, the opposite effect might be possible in colder climates. Lastly, in England trying to produce asparagus, not only is the actual soil affected by global warming but the lives of the farmers are impacted because of the lack of revenue this issue brings....

...to help other plants grow. The result is an endless cycle of growth, degeneration, decomposition, and regrowth once more. Implementing zero-waste to its fullest would mean ensuring a product poses a net-benefit to the environment throughout its entire life-cycle – especially towards the end of its lifespan. Zero-waste has become a cornerstone to many business models and environmental ideas. It is also the central component of the Cradle to Cradle principle developed by William McDonough and Michael Braungart to help business implement closed-loop, zero-waste production systems informed by nature. The Problem with Normal Packaging The biggest problem with normal packaging is that it uses materials that are generally damaging to the environment. Materials such as certain plastics, polystyrene foam (styrofoam), and polyvinyl chloride contain harmful chemicals that can leech into the environment, contaminate the ground and water, and adversely affect plant and animal life. And since these products do not readily decompose, large volumes of these harmful materials end up in landfills. The problem is that packaging is in such widespread use for food and consumer products that large quantities of harmful packaging waste are produced and emitted into the environment every day. The cumulative environmental impact of such harmful waste production is unsustainable and environmentally destructive on a large-scale. Perhaps the most telling example of the dangers of plastic waste is......

...expense, those whose circumstances allow them to, but choose not to, are choosing to pay some other cost, generally in environmental and personal health. Going towards a greener approach in your day-to-day lives has its benefits. These benefits range from saving earth and our environment, saving our health and improving it, and, last but not least, saving money in the long term. While our collective actions have done huge amounts of damage to our planet, our collective actions can also save it (Going Green Hints). Let us talk first about how going green can save our planet and our environment. Earth is our planet, and contains abundant natural resources. As we evolved, we grew more and more intelligent and developed machines. Those machines, which use large amounts of fuel and energy polluted the environment and depleted many of our planet’s natural resources. As we grew, we cut down trees, which according to scientists are our planet’s lungs. This has not only affected our climate but has also helped worsen global warming. Avoiding the over-use of non-renewable resources and by planting more trees can provide a safe place for us and our future generations. Another benefit of helping in cleaning the environment and going green is its major effect on our health (Smenyak). Use of bikes or walking to work or school will not only help us get exercise, it also helps in reducing the amount of carbon monoxide and other harmful gases from polluting the earth’s atmosphere. If......

...other hand do not have these laws, so in turn, they currently possess the most polluted city in the world, as of 2013. The city is Linfen, China. Before the rare earth mining started in 1978, this city was known for spring water and a lovely environment, and was even considered a modern fruit and flower town. Even though this doesn’t seem to be good for the United States, that they are pretty much at China’s mercy when it comes to rare earths, it is good for the environment. Market prices affect supplies of nonrenewable minerals. The economic fact is, when a resource becomes scarce, the price goes up. This fact promotes new and more efficient technology and encourages a search for substitutes. Then, the U.S.’s dependency on the Chinese rare earths market will start to diminish down to healthy levels. An example of this concept would be the fact that there is a shortage of copper because China uses it all up expeditiously. There might be reserves that last 30 years at the most. But, a replacement may have been found in the PEX formation. There still remains other problems such as the bad practice of giving subsidies and tax breaks to mining companies. These tax deductions keep the artificial price low, but is very costly to the environment....

...Significant numbers of large scale industries are generating toxic elements in both gaseous and solid form, chemical and unrefined wastes causing air pollution and placing extra load on the environment. 9. Urbanization. The unemployed rural people migrating to the larger cities causing scarcity of housing land, drainage problem, excessive production of sewage and other wastes, traffic congestion etc. shrinks down cultivable land of the country. These all badly affect the environment causing ultimate effect on weather. 10. Deforestation. According to a recent estimate, over the past 50 years nearly 14% (?) of the forest area had been deforested. This is causing excess pressure on ozone layer which ultimately affects the climate. 11. Marine Pollution. Ships operating at sea and ship breaking industries mainly in the SE Asian coastal areas are polluting the sea and adjacent land area by discharging liquefied petroleum gas and oxygen, large amount of fuel and other oily substances adding threat to marine environment. It further makes the sea surface polluted and warmed and increasing the temperature. 12. Air Pollution and Transportation. The major sources of air pollution occur due to the burning of fossil fuel, petroleum for transportation etc. These cause increasing of CO2 in the environment and affecting the weather. 13. Pressure by Population Growth. The world’s population growth is rising specially in SE Asia at 17,000 people/sq km by 2050. This leads to a......

...with it on a daily basis. However, research has proved that being exposed to PM2.5 for a long period of time will augment both all-cause and specific-cause mortality (Garrett & Casimiro, 2011). A possible explanation is that the small size and short diameter make it possible for PM2.5 to penetrate into people’s lung, which brings chronic damage (Zhang et al., 2013). These research results enhance the scientific knowledge about smog, and lay solid foundation for future control and prevention against smog contamination. Therefore, while citizens had been growing awareness of smog’s severity and complained with deep concern, Chinese politicians were finally woken up by the outcries and actively sought measures to redeem the losses of environment. Obviously, achieving this goal could never be straightforward. An Action Plan for Air Pollution Prevention and Control (2013-7) was issued in September 2013 by the State Council. This plan combined three provinces (Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei) as a unit named Jing-Jin-Ji area, aiming at better control and supervision. It was not long after this plan that a well-designed and particular action file was released by the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) to instruct how to implement the former plan. With two goals set in this file, Chinese government will decrease the PM2.5 level in Jing-Jin-Ji area by 25% while avoiding the density of PM2.5 from soaring over 60 μm/m3 in Beijing by the end of 2017. However, it is predicted......
