1. The Case for Thieves vs. Windex
~^~By Gloria Miller

Now that the holiday season is approaching, most of us are starting to focus on the tradition of getting our homes "sparkling clean." But what kind of products to use -- or NOT to use, and why? I'd like to make the case for Thieves Household Cleaner (which, I admit, has an odd-sounding name), by contrasting it with a popular over-the-counter cleaner (with a most delightful-sounding name): Crystal Rain Windex™. (Aaahh. . . Lovely purple color, and the name makes us want to run barefoot through the dewdrops, right? Well, read on. . .)

Nobody would dream of spraying food with Windex, but they do spray various surfaces in their home with it -- including sinks and countertops -- which come in contact with food, and refrigerator door handles, which come in contact with skin.

Let's take a few seconds to find out what they (and their family and pets) will be inhaling, and what kind of chemicals will be left behind on surfaces. There's not much printed on the label, so I visited the Windex.com website for a closer look, then checked out the ingredients on Wikipedia.

Here are some of the ingredients in Crystal Rain Windex, what the maker has to say about them, and what they really are.

The Windex website lists 2-Methoxyethanol (also called Ethylene glycol monomethyl ether) and describes it as "a cleaning agent that removes dirt and soils." Just what we want, right?

2-Methoxyethanol is toxic to the bone marrow and testicles. Workers exposed to high levels are at risk for granulocytopenia (reduction in certain types of white blood cells), macrocytic anemia (abnormally large red corpuscles usually caused by B-12 deficiency), oligospermia (shortage of sperm), and azoospermia (absence of sperm). Uh-oh. . .

The Windex website lists Ethanolamine, described as "a cleaning agent that removes dirt and soils." Again, this sounds good. Ethanolamine is a toxic, flammable, corrosive, colorless, viscous liquid with an odor similar to that of ammonia. It is an iritant to the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. Overexposure causes lethargy. What!? . . . No wonder people get tired when they clean all day with Windex. Ouch! And P.U.!

Ethoxylated alcohol, another ingredient, is listed on the Windex website as "a cleaning agent that removes dirt and deposits." O - o - okaaay. . .

Ethoxylated alcohol has been controversial because of its widespread use and the toxicity to aquatic life after it's degradation. (Is this what the maker means by "green???") By the way, some ethoxylated alcohols are called PEGs, or polyethylene glycols. Ever heard of them? PEGs are a class of useful compounds of molecular weights ranging from 190 to 9000 atomic mass units that vary in texture from viscous liquids to waxy solids. The Merck Index says PEGS can be considered as being of "low toxicity." (Regarding toxicity, "no" is better than "low" and Thieves Household Cleaner has "no toxicity.")

Anyhow, PEGs are found in all kinds of over-the-counter products from garage floor cleaners, cosmetics, and eye drops, to paints, paper coatings, commercial foods and food products. Wikipedia says "PEGs are nephrotoxic (damaging to the kidneys) if applied to damaged skin. (Is that what they mean by "low toxicity?) Pesonally, I'd rather protect my kidneys than put them at risk for the sake of a shiny countertop.

Now for the mystery ingredient, Polyquart® Ampho 149, also said to be "a cleaning agent that removes dirt and soils." The name tells you it is a synthetic substance that does not exist in nature with which our bodies were not designed to easily metabolize and eliminate. Polyquart® Ampho 149 is a registered trademark of Cognis GmbH, which is the same as saying, "No way will we tell you what's in it." Hmmm. . .I wonder why. . .

No place does it say whether these chemicals in combination might be even more dangerous. The company isn't required to test them that way, so they don't -- or if they did, they aren't telling us the outcome. (Call me a worry-wart, but I'm willing to bet mixing them together doesn't make them any less toxic.)

There are a few other ingredients, including artificial colors. I didn't check them out because I believe the above would be enough to convince ANYONE to switch to Young Living's Thieves Household Cleaner. (Oh, and water, which you can get by turning on a faucet.)

But if someone still needs more convincing, consider this: Crystal Rain Windex costs about $3.00 per quart.

Thieves Household Cleaner, mixed to "Medium Degreasing" concentration, costs about thirty cents a quart. It comes highly concentrated, so you add your own water.

Thieves Household Cleaner is totally non-toxic -- so safe that a small child could drink it right out of the bottle and not be harmed. Full-strength, it will clean burned-on gunk off the bottom of an oven. To clean glass, just dilute it further with some white vinegar, which makes it even more of a bargain.

But even if someone doesn't care about paying ten times more for Windex, why would they pay a company any amount on toxins? How "clean" will their house be, with a film of toxins on every surface?

Thieves Household Cleaner is antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal (great for destroying mold and mildew in tiled surfaces!) It's even antiviral. It contains 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils of Clove, Cinnamon, Lemon, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary, but NO harmful chemicals. So besides everything being sanitary AND safe, your house will smell wonderful.

Breathing Thieves cleaner is pleasant and boosts your health. The makers of Windex can't claim that.I count it an added bonus when, after cleaning all day with Thieves cleaner, my hands feel better than when I started! And, oddly enough, the water I used will be dirty, but the rag or sponge is fairly clean. (Go figure!)

If you haven't already, I hope you will "make the switch" to Thieves Household Cleaner. Do it for health's sake AND for your budget. It comes in a 14.4 ounce size (YL item #3743), but if you want to save even more money, get the two quart size (YL item #4475).

2. God's Breath
~^~by David Stewart, PhD

God’s Breath

The fragrances of flowers,
Of fields, and of the trees
Exhaled as God’s own breathing
As wafted on a breeze

Inhaled by us, his children
To mingle with our own
The taking of His likeness
Into our flesh and bone

The healing of the nations
By oils of stems and leaves
Embracing Him in silence
In resonance we breathe

Vibrations of the Master
God’s molecules of love
The essence of creation
Distilled from heav’n above

Essential oils of living
God’s nature to imbue
With joy and peace and courage
Uplifting me and you.

As God breathed life to Adam
God’s oils bring life to heal
In sweet aromas fragrant
His presence we do feel

cf. Genesis 2:7; Psalm 33:6; Job 33:4; John 20:22; Revelation 22:2


3. Why Our Great-Grandparents were "Happier"
~^~Adapted by David Stewart from material provided by Bob Krone, YL Distributor from Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Today we are prone not to trust the U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA). While they were commissioned by the U.S. Congress just over a hundred years ago to protect us from fraudulent and potentially dangerous foods and drugs, today it often seems they are more interested in protecting the vested interests of companies whose foods and potions are far from healthy and, some cases, can make you sick and even cause death. Just listen to the disclaimers on television when advertising over-the-counter or prescription drugs and you know what I mean.

However, before the FDA, there was a real problem to be addressed in the country. The driving factor behind establising the FDA was because of the plethora of medicines and elixers of the 19th century that really were faudulent or dangerous and people were being duped and harmed. For example, there was a weight-loss product sold sold on pharmacy shelves that actually contained tapeworm eggs. So some sort of regulation was certainly in order. But are we better off today because of the FDA, or not?

Anyhow, here are some examples of items freely available to the public during your great-greatgrandparents days which may explain their fond memories of the "Good Old Days," even though thir life spans were shorter.

Bayer's Heroin
Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold to the public by Friedrich Bayer & Co., a German company later made famous for its aspirin, as a non-addictive substitute for morphine. It was also used to treat children suffering with a stong cough.

Coca Wine
Metcalf's Coca Wine claiming to be made from "fresh coca leaves and the purest wine," was one of a large variety of wines containing cocaine on the market. It was recommended for "neuralgia, sleeplessness, despondency, as well as fatigue of mind or body." Distributed by Theodore Metcalf & Co., of Boston, Massachusetts, it promised to be "A Pleasant tonic and Invigorator." While making you "happy," it could also work as "a medicinal treatment."

Mariani Wine
In 1875 Mariani Wine was the most famous coca wine of its time. Claiming that it was especially effective for "influenza" it promised to "quickly restore health, strength, energy, and vitality as well as "hasten convalescence." Pope Leo XIII used to carry a bottle with him at all times and allowed his smiling image to be featured on the label. The Pope was so pleased, he awarded Angelo Mariani, formulator of the libation, with a Vatican Gold Medal. Mariani Wine was distributed by Wilcox & Co. of London.

Maltine With Coca Wine
We all know that Malt has healthy attributes and has been marketed in many forms. Maltine was a 19th century tonic made by the Maltine Manufacturing Co. of New York that contained coca wine. Its lable boasted that Maltinehad won ten Gold Medals." Suggested dosage for adults was one full glass with or after every meal while children should only take half a glass.

Cocaine and Quinine
While cocaine has its own benefits as well as less desirable effects, quinine, an effective treatment for malaria, is also teratogenic (causing birth defects) and must be administered with discretion. The C.F. Boehringer & Soehne Company of Mannheim, Germany, used to boast of themselves as "The largest makers of quinine and cocaine in the world."

Opium for Asthma
The National Vaporizer Co., of Kalamazoo, Michigan, sold a product called "Vapor-OL Treatment No. 6" which contained "not more than 40% alcohol and 3 grains of opium per fluid ounce." It was recommended for "asthma and other spasmodic affections." A bottle cost 50 cents. With that much alcohol and opium, even if it didn't cure you, you didn't care.

Cocain Tablets
A company in France, V. Vanderbroek Pharmacien, used to sell mint flavored pills containing cocain for its anesthetic and antiseptic properties. It was highly recommended for stage actors, singers, techers, and preachers to achieve maximum performance. Great to "smooth" the voice.

Cocain Drops for Toothaches
Lloyd Manufacturing or Albany, New York had an "Instantaneous Cure" for a toothache--"Cocaine Tothache Drops." It was very popular for children in the late 1800s. Not only did they relieve pain, they made the children very happy.

Opium for Newborns
An American company, Sickney and Poor's, Inc., used to sell a 40% alcolohol tincture of opium called "Pure Paregoric," which was listed in the U.S. Pharamacopia of remedies at the time. The dosages on the bottle were as follows: Five days old, 5 drops; Two weeks old: 8 drops; Five years old, 25 drops; Adults, 1 teaspoonful. Thus you could insure your baby to sleep well through the night, and yourself as well.

So there you have it. It seems as though yesterday's remedies were designed to keep you stoned, from cradle to grave. But with todays abundance of antidepressants, pain killers, and mind numbing drugs approved by the FDA, are we any different than the generation of our Great Greatgrandparents? The FDA sometimes seems to protect the toxic and ban the beneficial, favoring synthetic substances over natural ones like supplements, herbs, and essential oils.

You decide if we are better off with an FDA or not. We do live longer, and that is a fact. "But how and why?" is the question.

This class was very enlightening. I would recommend it to everyone. It is nice to know that there is an alternative to medicine.
~ Tiffany Slusher, Minford, Ohio

As a Medical Doctor, I would suggest very highly that all medical practitioners, medical students, and residents should be exposed to programs like this.
~ Andrew Sears, M.D., Saginaw, Michigan

I can say from experience that the complete version of Raindrop, as taught in CARE Seminars, is the very best. CARE training allows a person to completely grasp the meaning of every technique and lesson taught so a person can carry out, with true value and with deep spirituality, their own facilitations using CARE methods. I am confident that I have learned the most effective way to assist others on their journey to optimum health."
~ Colleen Coleman, Sherwood, Oregon

Since I can remember I could not seem to hear what others could hear. As a result I was labeled as a slow learner. At the CARE Seminar, the Instructor asked if he could demonstrate the Vitaflex Ear Technique on me using helichrysum oil. So I took out my hearing aid and he gave his demonstration to the class. That night when I turned on my computer I had to decrease the volume by three-quarters of the setting I normally use as it was too loud for me. The next day I did not wear my hearing aid to class and for the first time I did not strain to hear.
~ Vickie Hornbuckle, Piedmont, Kansas
This seminar was beyond my highest expectations! It opened up incredible insights and understandings! In addition we learned one Vitaflex technique that 'cured' my scoliosis with one application.
~ Patricia B. Hayes, Bath, Michigan

My experience in this class was very precious and a blessing! The instructor poured out her love all day long amongst us. She touched my heart. I would love to have more of my dear friends in Europe receive this wonderful experience.
~ Gabriele Hauser, M.D., Vienna, Austria

This program has changed my life. I feel as if I have been waiting all of my life for this door to open so I could walk through into my destiny. Usually I would go to a seminar and in a few days, I would go back to my old habit patterns, but not this time. The next day after the emotional release class I woke up totally free from a fear I had for years. God is such a wonderful Father to prepare these healings for us in such a simple way as offered through CARE's ministry. I will forever be thankful. And one more thing. My block towards chemistry is gone. Really gone!I did not look forwardto the class. I actually dreaded it. Now, I am looking forwardto taking it again and becoming a teacher! Miracles happen all the time! Shalom.
~ Maria DeShields, St. Louis, Missouri

A fabulous reintroduction to the oils, the chemistry, and life in general. The instructor was amazing.
~ Jyll Johnstone, DiReno, Italy

The CARE Intensive exceeded my high expectations. All of the instructors were great. Their tremendous caring and willingness to give of self was always evident. This program provides an opportunity to build on previous knowledge or start new if unfamiliar with essential oils. It also enables you to participate in personal growth and meet wonderful people.
~ Jeannette Vaupel, RN, Genoa, Illinois

It was great! I loved it! Until I took this seminar I didn't have a clue that oils could do so much! Thank you!
~ Susan J. Knowles, Caldwell, West Virginia

We traveled a long way for the CARE Seminar (from England to California). The whole workshop was interesting, enlightening, excellent, and very enjoyable. It was well worth every mile traveled!
~ Susan Neary, Clitheroe, Lancashire, England

As a massage therapist I was able to take the work that I do to the next level! The understanding of the chemistry of essential is helping me explain the scientific way they work. Thank you. It was a pleasure being in this class.
~ Melissa Bills, LMT, Caro, Michigan

~ Aziyza Shabazz, St. Croix, Virgin Islands

Three days after receiving raindrop in the CARE class I received a healing from a painful shoulder and left arm. I am very excited what the oils do for people.
~ Meg Hueslcamp, Brenham, Texas

Millions of thanks to you. I am already lining up students to come to your next classes. Everything was taught in such a simple manner that even a child could follow and do raindrop technique. May God bless you richly in your work.
~ Kiew Lo, Carlingford Court, New South Wales, Australia

Words are not adequate to express how great this class is. Everyone was inspired and blessed by every section of the class. We didn't want it to end.
~ Connie Allen, Lewiston, Idaho

The CARE Intensive was so great! It was amazing. During the three days we all bonded together and it seemed like we were all a big family. I found the chemistry class to be very interesting, which shocked me as I never really enjoyed science before. You explained everything so well that now I will feel more confident in using my oils and sharing them. Thank you for the experience and the training.
~ Jamie Brown, Lakewood, California

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for such a wonderful program. Not only have I learned a great deal of new skills, I have grown as a spiritual being. All this in just three days! Thank you.
~ Kim McMahon, Bronte Beach, New South Wales, Australia

I have taken the CARE Classes twice now and it continues to get better. The magnitude of information is incredible. I feel like I could repeat and repeat.
~ Carol Garvey, Oakville, Ontario, Canada

I wouldn't change anything about the CARE class. It is perfect. This little group is really special. We were supported by so many angels and the presence of the highest spirit. I love this training!
~ Vijay Churfuerst-Hanzal, Leobendorf, Austria
