Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil ~ #Giveaway @brandbacker

100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil
~ Apothecary Extracts ~

I love the large size, and that the oil is bottled in a dark glass to help retain it's effects and protect from any sun damage. I also love that it has the bottled date right on the bottle. Mine was bottled August 2014 which assures me I am receiving a fresh product! The included the eBook for over 50 uses for the Tea Tree Oil is amazing. It's extremely easy to find what you are looking for with clear instructions and recommendations for use. It includes uses for health such as skin and hair as well as aromatherapy and bath scrubs. It even has uses for household cleaning! Such a versatile product.

Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil is a pure oil culled from the leaves of a tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) native to Australia. The aboriginal people of Australia have long used Tea tree oil. The Aborigines would bathe in medicinal pools of water where the tea tree leaves had naturally settled.

In World War Two, the producers and the cutters of Tea Tree were exempt from military service until enough essential oil had been accumulated. The oil was a highly valued product as it was issued to each soldier and sailor as part of their kit in order to treat tropical infections and infected wounds.

Description: The Tea Tree is a small tree or shrub with needle-like leaves. It can grow up to 7 meters (20 feet) in height and thrives in marshy areas, though it is now cultivated in plantations. The Tea Tree is very robust; it is ready for cutting only two years after its’ previous harvest.

Packaged in dark amber glass bottle with euro style dropper.
Botanical Name: Melaleuca alternifolia
Plant Part: Leaves
Extraction Method: Steam Distilled
Origin: Australia
Color: Colorless to pale yellow clear liquid.
Consistency: Thin
Aromatic Scent: Tee Tree Essential Oil has a fresh, antiseptic and medicinal scent. It also has characteristic mint and spice back-notes.
Strength of Aroma: Medium
Blends well with: Cinnamon Bark, Clary Sage, Clove Bud, Geranium, Lavender, Lemon, Myrrh, Nutmeg, Rosewood, Rosemary and Thyme.

Contemporary Uses: Tea Tree Essential Oil is best known as a very powerful immune stimulant. It can help to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses), and there is evidence that Tea Tree Oil massages prior to an operation may help to fortify the body and reduce post-operative shock. Used in vapor therapy, Tea Tree Oil can help with colds, measles, sinusitis and viral infections. For skin and hair, Tea Tree has been used to combat acne, oily skin, head lice, dandruff, toenail fungus, yeast infections, skin tags, cold sores, dandruff, and ringworm.

The Australian standards require that the oil of Melaleuca alternifolia must be composed of less than 15 cineole and over 30 terpinen-4-ol. You can see from the Gas Chromatography reports above that Apothecary Extracts’ Tea Tree Oil is not only compliant with these regulations but surpasses them. Apothecary Extracts is composed of less than 5 cineole and over 35 terpinen-4-ol which qualifies for Pharmaceutical Grade as established by the Australian Tea Tree Oil Industry Association. It is 100% pure and unadulterated. No fillers, additives, bases or carriers added.

Stay Warm and Cozy this Winter w/ Firelogs from @EnviroLogFire #Fire #Firewood

Firelogs from Enviro-Log
Ultimate Firewood Substitute

Known as the greenest and most versatile firelogs on the market, Enviro-Log Firelogs are the ultimate firewood substitute. Enviro-Log Firelogs are made from 100 percent recycled waxed cardboard and when compared to firewood, Enviro-Log Firelogs burn cleaner. Enviro-Log Firelogs emit:

30 percent less greenhouse gases
80 percent less carbon monoxide
86 percent less creosote.

Enviro-Log Firelogs can also be stored and burned in all weather conditions and can be transported for camping, fishing, RVing, tailgating and other outdoor activities without the concern of restrictions imposed on firewood by some states and campsites. Enviro-Log Firelogs are also great for emergency preparedness because they have an infinite shelf life and are safe to cook over. They are also a popular choice for fire pits, wood stoves, chimneys, and campfires.

Enviro-Log Firelogs have been tested by OMNI Environmental Services, Inc. in five major areas including: emissions; product application safety; performance; creosote accumulation; and physical and material properties. OMNI is an independent third party products testing laboratory specializing in emissions, safety and performance testing of manufactured fuels.
They come in 5-pound and 3-pound sizes. 
Made in the USA

I recently posted about Enviro-Log Firestarter cups and could not believe how easy they were to use. Not to mention how well they actually worked. When it came to the firelogs, I had high expectations. I was not disappointed at all. From the box the firelogs are shipped in, to the paper they are wrapped in, Enviro-Logs Firelogs are recycled and recyclable!

Per package instructions, you are to lay your wrapped firelog, seam side up, on your fire grate or in your fireplace. You can then tear off or open the seam to reveal the firelog. You do not have to remove the wrapper completely. Just open it up. After you have place your firelog where you want it and have it opened, you simply light the ends of the paper wrapper and watch the magic happen.

It's amazing how a waste product can create such a great sustainable product. I love that they are made from recycled waxed cardboard, like those used to transport fresh produce to stores and restaurants across the globe. Cardboard boxes that are essentially destined for a landfill. Enviro-Logs gives new life to the wasted product and turns it into a new product anyone can use. Now companies and business owners can get in on the recycling process as well!

Enviro-Log has worked with over 100 partners throughout North America and diverted over 150 million pounds of waxed cardboard from landfills.
 Retailers who are interested in participating in Enviro-Log’s recycling program can call (866)343-6847 or send an email to

Ross McRoy, president of Enviro-Log, said, “Our recycling program offers a win-win for retailers. Not only are we helping retailers significantly reduce their waste removal costs and improve their environmental impact, Enviro-Log provides value-added services to help retailers improve their sustainability and reach their carbon foot print goals. By forming a closed-loop including diversion of waxed cardboard box recovery and in-turn selling Enviro-Log Firelogs, retailers can achieve more than a 50 percent reduction in green house gases instead of using landfill alternatives. Participating in this closed loop recycling program enables retailers to prove to consumers that they are serious about helping the environment, not just talking about it.”

The #Learning Curve: The Benefits of #Online #Education

The Learning Curve:

The Benefits of Online Education

Recent years have seen the number of people enrolling in online education courses increase significantly. Online learning has really taken off, in fact. Offering everything from higher education degrees to certificate courses and many more, the world of online learning is vast and varied. For many parents, the idea of ‘going back to school’ is something of a pipe dream, entertained between school runs, homework, extracurricular activities and dinner. For people with busy home lives, internet-based learning is the perfect option. Here are just a few of the reasons why:
Attending lectures and seminars at fixed times during the day simply isn't possible for many people. Online courses give students the opportunity to access course content at any time and from anywhere, so that parents, working students and other professionals can ‘attend’ class when it suits them and when they’re able to give the necessary coursework their undivided attention.
Community support
The learning may occur in a digital space, but that doesn't mean that online education isn't filled with people. Online courses are often supported by a range of resources from lecture reviews to discussion boards to additional explanations and comments which provide students with a collaborative, constructive space that allows them to ask questions and get the support that they require. To boot, this is all from the comfort of home.
Online education comes in all forms. Students can learn about anything from economics to plant propagation in supportive, innovative online settings. For many people, these courses provide an avenue to learn about subjects that aren't readily available at nearby institutions, creating dynamic and fascinating curriculum's for students all over the world.
One of the best things about online education is the pace at which each student is able to learn and absorb new information. Slow and steady wins the race, after all! On average, online learning conditions are said to enhance the educational experience and recent studies show that the performance results of online students are now modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction. In assessing these results, studies have determined that time is the key factor in this enhanced performance, as the online model allows students to spend more time on specific tasks than students in more traditional settings.
Personal and professional obligations can make life become rather hectic rather quickly. Online learning gives you the chance to continue learning what you want, when you want. Whether you’re working toward a degree or a one-off course prompted simply by curiosity, online education is flexible, dynamic and interactive. This makes a perfect option for anyone interested in improving themselves.
