    Default what would you recommend?

    I'm researching health supplements and organic products on the web. We are going to sell more of them in our store and I need a few suggestions. At the moment we have:
    emu oil
    tea tree oil
    eucalypthus oil
    olive leaf extract
    organic shampoos and conditioners
    hemp oil
    co enzyme (Q10)
    ginko
    multi vitamins
    vit C

    I would like suggestions about products you actually use yourself and recommend.

    Thanks everyone

    Barley green and Oil of Oregano.

    I like Burt's Bees products (especially the lip balm and the coconut foot creme). (I also use the tinted moisturizer, creme blush, herbal deodorant, and insect repellent). www.burtsbees.com


    We also use some JASON products (shampoo, conditioner, deodorant). http://www.jason-natural.com/

    Might I suggest adding toothpaste to the list? We are currently using Tom's of Maine, but won't be any longer after our supply runs out because it contains SLS. We are researching right now to determine what's available to us at stores here.

    Ds takes Animal Parade multivitamins and loves them. http://www.naturesplus.com/ He has tried the toothpaste (very cherry flavor) and does not like it so we're still searching for a toothpaste for him besides Tom's.

    Pure Virgin Coconut Oil; it has capric, caprylic and lauric acid which help to fight systemic yeast. You can use it in baking, for salad dressings, in cooking, etc.

    Oil of Oregano; it also has caprylic acid in it.

    Garlic tablets (great for fighting infection and for your heart)

    I saw this mentioned on another site I was looking at one day, but the ladies that posted weren't having good success with it for baking if I remember correctly. Is there a secret to using it?

    Oil of Oregano is good for congestion and allergy symptoms. Barley green is used to treat Asthma with fantastic results.

    Oil of Oregano is also good for fighting systemic yeast.

    I have not tried baking with the coconut oil yet but my SIL uses it for cooking so I'll try to remember to check with her on it.

    Definitely tea trea and eucalyptus oils. They are staples in my medicine cabinet. I also use lavender essential oil a lot. It is very calming in the bath and combined with a carrier oil (hemp or something organic cold pressed) does wonders on ecxzema.

    I've never heard of the coconut oil for cooking but I do use it in my hand made soaps. They are very rich and it helps to prolong my olive oil soaps.

    We use a superior product called Natural Calm Magnesium. And considering that it is responsible for over 300 metabolic processes that go on in the human body, I would say it's a pretty important one Bethany. The reason we use the Calm is becuase it is a superior form of magnesium and absorbs quickly. So many people use an inferior form of magnesuim and get little of no results from it! Here is a link to the site that I order our from. www.vites.com

    I highly recommend a royal jelly capsule. I can tell a huge difference when I stop taking mine. It helps with energy levels and also calms those aches and pains that I get in the mornings (age related). There is a company called Bee Alive that makes what I suppose is a great product but I just buy mine at Walmart. I've been thinking about trying the Bee Alive to see if I can tell a difference or not.
