FEATURED PRODUCT: Marseille’s Remedy Thieves’ Oil & Balm: Ancient Remedy for Modern Times

marseilles-remedy-product-photo-6The Folklore

In 1413, as the bubonic plague decimated France, thieves were arrested for robbing dead and dying plague victims, a crime punishable by burning alive.  The judge offered them leniency for their terrible crimes if they would share the secret which enabled them to expose themselves to the plague without contracting it.  The thieves explained that they were perfume makers and spice merchants who were unemployed due to the closure of France’s sea ports.  They had prepared a special herbal infusion which they applied to their hands, ears, feet, masks, and temples and this protected them from infection.  As promised, the judge did not burn the men alive…He hanged them instead.  Soon after, plague doctors began to wear beak-like masks stuffed with absorbent material soaked in the Thieves’ blend to protect them from disease.

The Thieves’ original blend, containing vinegar and garlic, was known primarily as Vinaigre de Marseille. This formula was marketed by medical suppliers as the first line of defence for hundreds of years, and has been a staple of pestilent prevention in every plague since its formulation. The rise of the modern pharmacopeia saw this staple placed in the pages of forgotten history. Marseille’s Remedy is the most traditional concentrated form of this time- honoured recipe. Its applications are numerous, as a treatment for all of life’s hygienic needs.

A Powerful, Versatile Remedy

Marseille’s Remedy is an all-natural blend of five pure, high-grade, therapeutic essential oils used to improve wellness, health, and vitality. It consists of the organic, steam-distilled oils of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, plus the true cold-pressed oil of Lemon. These are sourced from Sri Lanka (the first two), Australia, France and Italy, respectively. This authentic blend naturally balances, safeguards, and synergizes (or strengthens) the healing properties of various essential oil constituents.

It can be mixed with any carrier oil for topical use, vinegar or soap for cleaning, baking soda for teeth, or used directly in a diffuser to purify air.

Its applications and usages are many, and when applied correctly, Marseille’s Remedy is a very effective antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral treatment.

We have received many happy testimonials from customers, including in successfully treating acne, boils, warts, cold sores, and colds/coughs amongst their families, to refreshing indoor air quality, eliminating their pet’s fleas, or wiping out surface molds, among others.

Suggested Uses:

  • Clears phlegm and congested airways
  • Relieves inflammation due to sprain/strain/rheumatoid arthritis
  • Antispasmodic for symptomatic relief of digestive discomfort
  • Eliminates airborne pathogens and foul odours
  • Antifungal: Feet, hands, scalp, and mold remediation
  • Use as hand sanitizer or all-purpose cleaner
  • Can aid in the treatment and prevention of topical infectious ailments
  • Deters mites, lice, worms, fleas, and mosquitoes

Applications:

  • Topical: Combine 2 drops of Marseilles Remedy with 40 drops of carrier oil, and massage into skin, muscles, or joints.
  • Direct Inhalation: For cough and cold, apply 2 to 6 drops undiluted product to a handkerchief/tissue and inhale. Alternatively, diffuse in boiling water or in an essential oil diffuser.
  • Household: Mix with soapy water, or diluted vinegar, to clean, and sanitize. Use undiluted to remediate mold around the house, or deter pests.

 

Thieves’ Balm:

The Balm is like having a popular muscle rub product combined with the favorite leading chest rub, merged into one effective and all-natural ointment. It contains over 50% of the Marseille’s Thieves’ Oil blend, plus some grapeseed oil and beeswax for pleasant texture, plus a warming natural camphor, and a soothing, deeply penetrating natural menthol (peppermint oil compound).

The balm is effective for many of the aforementioned uses, but also can “stick” longer to the skin, so is better suited for continual topical treatments, such as in respiratory disorders, or for joint or muscle aches or injury areas.

Some parents have reported how quickly it acted as an expectorant to help expel their child’s chest cold, and many clients have had success treating symptoms of back or other body pain. Recurrent daily use can help the body modulate the inflammatory response, and resolve conditions more easily.

Since Marseille’s Remedy is a concentrated, undiluted pure blend, use responsibly. Avoid contact with eyes, membranes, or other sensitive body areas. Read label before using.

Omega-3 Can Help Your Child Reach Their Full Potential

Kids Omega3 - wordyDiscover how Children’s Omega-3 can help your child realize their full potential.

Our sugar-free Children’sOmega-3 contains the ideal ratio of 100 mg EPA to 50 mg DHA per softgel, with a subtle burst of natural lemon flavour.  Omega3 fatty acids are crucial for childhood brain development which lays the foundation for learning, behaviour, attention span, mental focus, and mood.

 

Studies have also shown omega-3 fatty acid to be effective for treatment of childhood ADHD. Premium fish-oil supplementation is also a healthy, side effect–free alternative to prescription stimulants (methylphenidate) in the development and maintenance of ongoing mental health from childhood through adolescence.

 

New Roots Herbal’s Children’sOmega-3 is sourced from deep sea–dwelling sardines and anchovies. They’re tested for purity and potency, as well as for freedom from heavy-metal contamination in our industry-leading analytical laboratory.

 

Discover how Children’s Omega-3 can help your child realize their full potential.

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are critical to the optimal development of the nervous system in childhood.  These essential fatty acids fuel vigorous brain function, crucial for learning and behavioural development, nervous system integrity, and providing nourishment for healthy eyes. They also establish and maintain the network of veins and capillaries that lay the foundation for a lifetime of cardiovascular and mental wellbeing.

New Roots Herbal’s Children’sOmega-3 chewable softgels deliver the perfect balance of 100 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 50 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), naturally sweetened with stevia and a subtle burst of natural lemon flavour. Softgels are the ideal form of dosage to preserve the potency and therapeutic benefits of omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation.   EPA is arguably the most important single agent for promoting optimal mental focus, memory, concentration, and mood, in both adults and children. Studies have shown that EPA-rich omega-3  supplements can reduce ADHD traits, and even reverse criteria for the diagnosis of ADHD, in a considerable percentage of children. Collective data from a 2011 systematic review and meta-analysis of 10 trials of 660 children showed a significant difference with omega-3 fatty acid treatment, and higher doses of EPA rather than DHA within the omega-3 fatty acids supplements were significantly associated with increased effectiveness in treating ADHD symptoms.  Based on the strength of this data, a high-EPA fish oil with a minimum 2:1 ratio of EPA:DHA is needed to impact parameters related to mental focus, memory, and concentration. Studies show that a good dose of EPA for children is between 400 and 600 mg per day. A large concentration of omega-3 fatty acids is essential for nerve cell synapses (communication); a deficiency of these critical fatty acids can be a root cause for a host of cognitive disorders.  Premium fish oil supplementation also represents a healthy alternative to prescription stimulants (methylphenidate) for the development and maintenance of ongoing mental health. Our Children’s Omega-3 chewable softgels are a healthy way to lay the foundation of sound cognitive function during the formative years of childhood and adolescence.

New Roots Herbal’s premium fish oil is sourced from wild, deep sea–dwelling sardines and anchovies. It is tested for purity, potency, and for freedom from heavy metal contamination in our industry leading analytical laboratory.

NEW PRODUCT: CoQ10-SR by Quality of Life

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is one of the most intensively studied cardio-protective nutrients, which can also increase overall energy and act as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals.

Because standard CoQ10 is poorly absorbed, a number of technologies have been developed to improve its bioavailability. Unfortunately, while these products may dramatically increase CoQ10 absorption in some people, they have little or no effect in others.QofL CoQ10-SR

Quality of Life’s CoQ10-SR delivers sustained release over 24 hours, contains MicroActive® CoQ1 which is the only form of CoQ10 shown in human clinical studies to have 100% enhanced absorption across all test subjects.  CoQ10-SR comes in a vegetarian capsule!

CoQ10-SR will:

  • – Double CoQ10 levels from baseline in 3 weeks
  • – Delivers sustained release over 24 hours
  • – Is 3x better absorbed than regular CoQ10
  • – Is 2x better absorbed than solubilized CoQ10 softgels

The Hidden Side of Stinging Nettle

Illustration_Urtica_dioica0

by Josée Fortin, biochemist and naturopath

I probably recommend the use of Stinging Nettle more often than any other plant. It is packed with nutrients and serves as both remedy and food supplement.It revives the body as a whole, stimulates vitality, aids in the absorption of nutrients, activates the metabolism and helps to eliminate toxins by stimulating the kidneys. Stinging Nettle has a high alkaline content, and thus is very useful for balancing pH levels.

Bone and muscle system

Stinging Nettle has a significant remineralizing action. Its use can be recommended in the case of sprains, chronic arthritis, gout, rheumatism
and all joint-related problems. It helps detoxify the body, and is particularly useful in the elimination of uric acid. It even has mild anti-inflammatory properties.

Circulatory system

Rich in easily absorbed iron, Stinging Nettle helps promote the production of red blood cells, thereby helping to treat anemia. It also has hemostatic properties; that is to say, it reduces bleeding (such as nosebleeds). It also stimulates white blood cells (for example, leukemia and mononucleosis)
while helping to cleanse the blood.

Digestive system

The plant gently stimulates elimination via the intestines. On the other hand, it works just as effectively in the treatment of catarrh, gastrointestinal disorders, diarrhea and dysentery… It helps balance blood-sugar levels in people prone to hypoglycemia or diabetes (especially those who are not yet required to take insulin). It promotes all types of metabolic exchanges, stimulating enzyme activity. As such, it helps digestion and assimilation. It helps eliminate intestinal gas and soothes nervous-stomach cramps.

Urinary system

Stinging Nettle increases urination, which is useful in cases of chronic cystitis (urinary tract infection). The plant also helps to reduce symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Furthermore, it helps to flush out materials that may develop into kidney stones, and can be combined very well with the traditional diuretic plants, dandelion and goldenrod.

 

Stinging Nettle is an integral part of the A.Vogel 15 Day Detox Protocol along side Boldocynara and Molkosan
