Melaleuca: Healthy for You, Healthy for the Planet

Melaleuca: Healthy for You, Healthy for the Planet

Over 30 years ago I made my first purchase from Melaleuca, some Tea Tree oil to get rid of a canker sore to which I was very prone to having. It worked wonders in healing it as well as killing germs to allow all wounds to heal faster.

Through the years the company has grown with a transparency, ethics, standards, innovativeness, science, and expansive products I value. Their products are healthy for you and healthy for the planet. The cleaning products do not contain caustic chemicals, hence are human and pet safe. They still have essential oils that I love. Through science they have developed supplements to help you build and maintain a healthy body. They include products designed to support the body when doing exercise or a weight-loss program. Snack foods and treats also fall into the category of healthy. Beauty products and personal hygiene are included as well.

Melaleuca Products

To purchase products a person simply places an order on their website. Then it is shipped to you. Cleaning products are concentrated, hence you are not paying to ship heavy water. There are only two of us in this household and a bottle of laundry soap lasts roughly half a year. When our family arrives – and sometimes stays to help us for a week or two – I do go through it faster, but it still seems to last forever even during those times.

I’ve had a number of health issues through my life and found various supplements helped me to regain my health, making me stronger. Certain herbal supplements relieve aches and pains allowing me to move freely. Knowing a reputable company has researched the properties of the supplements and use only natural ingredients reduces my concern about ingesting harmful components. I’ve even been able to do things at this time in my life I wasn’t able to do 5,10, even 20 years ago. I think it is because my body is healing itself as I use my common sense along with these supplements.

I wanted to share this information about the Melaleuca Company in order to allow you to explore it as a possible resource – a VERY HEALTHY resource for you, your loved ones and the planet! Right now, as we are going through this global crisis, getting healthy and staying healthy are primary concerns for most. Finding an established company with a higher consciousness – a higher vibrational energy – providing products without caustic or harmful additives and with data-based, third-party documentation to show how it supports our health is of utmost concern for me, and I hope for you, too!

If you would like to learn more about Melaleuca, their products and my experience with them, I would be honored to talk with you. Please contact me via my email to set up a time to talk: Linda@LindaLenore.com

I wish you health, wellness and happiness. I’m here to support you in whatever ways I can.

Blessings, Linda Lenore

“Love-On-Your-Home” Is Self-Love: Flowers

Alstroemeria & RED Mini-Carnations

Most of you don’t know that in a previous life I worked in a florist shop. It was during an extremely challenging time in my life. My son, Jeff, had gone to the Emergency Room at the local hospital all three days over the Labor Day weekend, each day with a severe headache. With a different doctor each day, it was a nurse that had been there everyday who finally insisted they do a CAT scan, only to find the root problem was a blood clot requiring surgery. Unfortunately Jeff died a few months later. The flower shoppe played a major role in my grieving, and ultimately my healing, from this traumatic even

To this day, several of the lessons I learned while under the tutelage of a wise British woman, Irene, and her talented floral-creator daughter, Adele, have contributed to my respect for, love of, and craving for flowers both inside and outside my home. The hospital where Jeff was born, and ultimately died, was just 3 blocks from this shop.

Clean water & no leaves

I quickly discovered the circle of life played out in this arena.Plus during the two months before his death, Jeff delivered flowers to unsuspecting souls whose eyes lit up and smiles unfurled as he handed bouquets, plants and a few stuffed animals to celebrate, delight and heal bodies, minds and spirits. (He also received tips from many, which helped him purchase a remote control car he assembled before his death.)

 

What I learned in the flower shoppe:

  • When there is a death, there is usually a birth within a 24-hour period.
  • Always start with a good foundation – a clean vase – washed with soap and water, or possibly bleach.
  • Use the food packet – the packets you get contain sugar (nutrients), an acidifier (to maintain the water’s pH level so flowers can soak up the water), and bleach to kill any bacteria.
  • Give the stems a fresh cut since exposure to air seals the stem.
  • Cut the stem at an angle for more surface area to drink up more water.
  • Be sure to remove all leaves that will be in the water because the leaves rot and often are the carrier of diseases.
  • Check the water level daily. Keep the arrangement out of the sun or direct heat to prolong their beauty.

RED Mini-carnations

Yesterday my husband said how much he appreciated I “beautified” our home with flowers. First, I found that surprising because in 28 years he has never made a statement along those lines. Second, as I was removing the 4-week-old blooms from the dining room table vase, he started asking more questions about the new flowers I had purchased. Why did I use bleach to clean the vase? Why do I remove the bottom leaves? Why do I cut the stem at an angle?

As I was putting these beautiful Alstroemeria buds in the vase, he asked, “Will those buds open?” With a smile I said, “Yes, by tomorrow they will be open.”  And because they are buds, they will last 2-4 weeks. With delight in my heart from his awareness of this ritual I do, I was overjoyed I had been able to find one bouquet of RED mini-carnations to add to the arrangement. Since it’s only about a week after Valentine’s Day, finding anything RED is very unusual. 

This is a way I “Love-On-My-Home” as well as giving myself “Self-Love.” Go get some flowers for your home and your heart! Then, please share it here!

 

Double Eagles Create Eagle Heart: A Valentine’s Day Full of Love

Inspired at Valentine’s Day 2012, this piece by First Nation artist Roy Henry Vickers depicts two Eagles and a heart connection.

Some pieces of art really move me. They touch me deep in my soul. This is one such piece. Created by Roy Henry Vickers, a First Nation artist in the Tofino area of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, it spoke to my heart in April 2016. Little did I know the impact it would have on my life.

Vickers says of this piece he created: “Eagle Heart is another one of those magic, inspired creations that comes along one day. This one came thinking of Valentine’s Day 2012, and it was inspired by commen

Two Bald Eagles Who Have Mated for Life. Symbols of Spiritual Soul Mates

ts from fans about a Valentine design that I had created.”

He continues by sharing this: “Eagles mate for life and are a symbol of vision. The courtship and mating ritual of eagles is breathtaking when you see them lock talons high in the sky and spin to the earth in this incredible  aerial dance. They eventually separate to rise to greater heights and do this dance all over again. These were the thoughts that inspired this creation. I wanted something different for a Valentine’s image this year and out of this desire came: EAGLE HEART.”

I purchased this piece as a symbol of the deep love I share with my Soul Mate, Hilory. We have gone through many health challenges together, some were supposed to end in death. We celebrate 28 years together this year.

The surprising thing is a move we did last year to the Pacific Northwest. In 2016 we still planned to live in California all our lives. Yet, shortly thereafter, life circumstances changed. We decided to move. Now at the waters edge of Dungeness Bay across the Strait of Juan de Fuca from Vancouver Island, Canada, and Victoria Harbour, we have these incredible Bald Eagles as our neighbors.

Today, Valentine’s Day 2019, two Bald Eagles landed in a tree outside our bedroom window. Perched together, they posed for an hour for me while I talked to them.

Images are powerful. They connect deep to your soul, moving you towards their reality. What are the images surrounding you? What are they telling you? Are they really what you want? Now is a good time to analyze each piece of art. Make sure they are setting the intentions to manifest your heart’s desire.
