PRODUCT Q&A

Q How do I search which oils are best for which condition?
A Head to your essential oils page. Click Control F or Command F (F is for find). A search window will appear at the edge of your screen. Key in the body part you wish to support. For example: head, respiratory, skin, etc. Then click enter. The first oil used to support that part of the body will appear. Click enter again and the second oil used for that condition will appear.

Q Can you taste the Stevia in Super Reds Powder or 7.365 pH Shake? What is stevia and what are the health benefits? What form or format of stevia does Essanté Organics use? Why does Essanté Organics use Stevia instead of Sucralose or Aspartame? Is stevia safe for pregnant moms, nursing moms and children of all ages?
A

You cannot taste stevia or any stevia aftertaste in our products, guaranteed. If you experience an aftertaste with another company's product, it's typically because they are using a cheap, pesticide laden form of the stevia plant (read below). 

Essanté Organics understands there are many health benefits of raw, organic stevia leaves. This .pdf by Food Insight shares the safety of stevia: CLICK HERE (right click to copy link address). Multiple board certified doctors share stevia is safe for pregnant / breast feeding / nursing moms and children of all ages: CLICK HERE (right click to copy link address).  Discover the health benefits of stevia, the most alkaline sweetener in the world, as shared inside our 7.365 pH Shake document: CLICK HERE (right click to copy link address).

What is stevia and what form, format, or kind of stevia does Essanté Organics use?

The stevia plant is an herb (plant) that comes from the sunflower family. It helps reduce appetite and improve blood sugar levels. Stevia comes in many forms, from fresh leaves, to dried leaves, to powder extracts, to liquids. Most formulators base their choice on the amount of sweetness desired, versatility, and the amount they wish to spend on the ingredient. Our raw, cold-pressed, wildcrafted or organic stevia extract powder is the finest, sweetest, healthiest, most nutrient dense, and delicious form of Stevia.  When you taste the right stevia, it tastes like a million bucks. High quality stevia, like ours, is known for having zero aftertaste. Whole leaf stevia is not FDA approved for use in foods, however stevia extract is FDA approved.

Essanté Organics starts with fresh, indigenously wildcrafted or certified organic, raw stevia leaves which are cold-pressed to gain pure raw stevia leaf extract. This fine powder is an extract of the sweet glycosides (natural sweetening agents) within the stevia leaf.  We use stevia leaf extract in all of our formulations including 7.365 pH Shakes, Super Reds Powder, and Sparkle Tooth Polish. 

Raw stevia extract does not raise blood insulin levels, it scores a zero on the glycemic index, and it is far sweeter and healthier than honey or sugar. Stevia extract is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar by weight.  The cold-pressed extraction process makes stevia far sweeter than the leaf itself, and it allows our stevia to retain all of its nutritional content and healthy benefits, including its ability to help reduce appetite.  We also choose stevia because it is the most alkaline sweetener on earth and naturally has zero calories. 

The fresh, raw, wildcrafted or organic stevia leaves we start with are an unrefined herb. A leaf picked from a stevia plant and chewed will deliver an extremely long lasting sweet taste. Yet for stevia to be used in practical applications, as a sweetener for tea, food, or products like ours, the leaves must be dried and extracted, and this amplifies the sweet taste. Drying and crushing is necessary in order for the leaves to release the constituents (sweet glycosides) that offer a more sweet flavor. A dried leaf is intensely sweeter than a fresh one, much like a raisin is to its former plump grape form. And it's worth mentioning again, that the FDA does not approve whole leaf stevia, they approve the form we use: stevia extract.

In closing, it's important to know not all stevia extract powders are the same. The taste, sweetness, and cost depend on the growing method, the processing method, the degree of refinement, and the quality of the original stevia plant used. You may find that cheaper, syrupy, black or dark colored stevia liquids and cheaper powders have a metallic aftertaste. We use the highest quality stevia plants and cold-pressing method, this is why our products are known for having zero stevia aftertaste. 

We do not use liquid stevia concentrates because they are made by boiling or steeping the leaves in water or a water and grain alcohol mix, and both methods can negate the nutritional value of the raw leaf. 

What are the health benefits of stevia? 

We could write a book yet here's the "skinny": Stevia leaves contain potassium, zinc, magnesium and vitamin B3. Based on nutrition facts, stevia is fibrous and, its fiber can help reduce slow or hard bowel movements and it can promote healthy, proper digestion. Stevia contains 702 ppm (parts per million) of iron, which can stimulate the production of hemoglobin. Studies suggest large doses of stevioside, one of the sweet compounds in stevia, can help reduce unnaturally high blood pressure. Stevioside can also help improve hormone and insulin function, resulting in lower blood sugar levels. If you have type 2 diabetes, consult your physician because s/he may share stevia can be useful in helping to maintain normal insulin levels. Stevia has an outstanding safety profile and no adverse effects have been reported in human studies. This cannot be said for most synthetic options and ingredients on the market today. 


The FDA has not evaluated this statement. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. Consult your physician before beginning any exercise, food or diet program. 

Why doesn't Essanté Organics use aspartame, is it dangerous?

Essanté Organics does not believe in the use of synthetic ingredients including Aspartame. Aspartame is one of the most common artificial sweeteners used today and it is sold under the brand names NutraSweet® and Equal®. There is great controversy over the safety of this synthetic sweetener. Many claim it is completely safe and many claim is has a long list of serious side effects. This FDA.gov document is particularly interesting: CLICK HERE (right click to copy link address).

Why doesn't Essanté Organics use sucralose, is it dangerous?

Essanté Organics does not believe in the use of synthetic ingredients including Sucralose. Sucralose is a common artificial sweetener used today and it is made by Johnson & Johnson and sold under the brand name Splenda®. There is great controversy over the safety of this synthetic sweetener. Many claim it is completely safe and many claim is has serious side effects including a possible link to leukemia. This article outlines an interesting italian study and the point of view of The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI): CLICK HERE (right click to copy link address).

Q Can I premix Super Reds and / or Earth Greens with juice or will the juice kill the live enzymes?
A Anything cold or hot (including refrigeration or cooking) can reduce the enzymatic and nutrient potency of all fruits and vegetables, including Earth Greens Powder and Super Reds Powder. Mixing our powders in room temperature liquid is recommended. Sprinkling our powers onto salads or fruits, etc. is also recommended. Many enjoy Super Reds Powder "straight", like a delicious and healthy pixy stick. Incidentally, orange juice, apple juice, cranberry juice and prune juice are all acidic juices, thus we recommend water. While there is organic cranberry in Super Reds, Super Reds is an alkaline and pH balanced product. Of course, if your little tike will only accept Earth Greens inside his favorite juice and sippy cup.... by all means share it with him, because a juice with Earth Greens is better than a juice without Earth Greens.
Q My doctor advised me to take 2000 units of vitamin B each day. Which Essanté Organics product would be the best B vitamin supplement? Is Bee Natural a sublingual B vitamin for energy? And how much sugar is in Bee Natural? 
A

Yes. Bee Natural is a prebiotic and a sublingual B vitamin that improves energy. There are no added sugars in Bee Natural.  There are naturally occurring sugars in the Bee Pollen and Honey however, and for this reason each Bee Natural Tablet, there are 0.28g of naturally occurring sugars.

The Royal Jelly in Essanté Organics Bee Natural (dissolvable tablets) is a complete protein, an excellent source of all the B vitamins, and so much more. Royal Jelly contains all of the B-complex vitamins in significant enough proportions to act as a supplement, according to Leigh Broadhurst in the book, "User's Guide to Propolis, Royal Jelly, Honey and Bee Pollen."

Royal Jelly is a nutritional and vitamin powerhouse containing the following:

  • Vitamin A
  • All of the B-vitamins
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • 17 Amino Acids (including 8 essential for humans that the body cannot manufacture)
  • Essential Fatty Acids & the following minerals
  • calcium
  • copper
  • iron
  • phosphorous
  • potassium
  • manganese
  • silicon
  • sulfur

Royal Jelly is particularly high in all of the B vitamins: B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, B-7, B-9 and B-12. The formal names of these B vitamins are thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, biotin, folate or folic acid and cobalamin. The B-complex vitamins are derived from food and plant sources and they are necessary for energy and chemical synthesis, protein regulation, enzymatic activity, and other bodily functions. For example, the B vitamin pantothenic acid, is recognized for its ability to reduce stress levels and reverse the graying of hair, according to several published studies at pubmed.org. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, one gram of Royal Jelly contains the following amounts of vitamins:

  • Vitamin B1 - 1.5 to 7.4 mcg (micrograms)
  • Vitamin B2 - 5.3 to 10 mcg
  • Vitamin B3 - 91 to 149 mcg
  • Vitamin B5 - 65 to 200 mcg
  • Vitamin B6 - 2.2 to 10.2 mcg
  • Biotin - 0.9 to 3.7 mcg
  • Inositol - 78 to 150 mcg
  • Folic Acid - 0.16 to 0.5 mcg

There are approximately 60,000 micrograms (60 milligrams or mg) of Royal Jelly in just two tablets of Essanté Organics Bee Natural. Again, a significant B vitamin supplement according to the sources listed in the User's Guide to Propolis, Royal Jelly, Honey and Bee Pollen. All of these vital nutrients are the ingredients that make up Essanté Organics Bee Natural.

Royal Jelly is created by bees as the exclusive food source for the queen bee. It is naturally high in protein. Royal Jelly is well known as a complete protein and perfectly balanced food because of the many vital compounds it contains including: 12.3% protein, 5.5% fat and 12 - 15% carbohydrates. It contains natural hormones which can support libido and normalize body temperature. Royal Jelly shines brightly as a nutritional superstar because it also contains a network of dense nutritive elements including: essential sugars, nucleic acids, vegetable gelatin, gamma globulin, flavonoids, phytosterols, collagen, human growth hormone, and other fascinating nutrients, 3 percent worth, that are pronounced "unidentifiable" by modern day scientists.

You may also enjoy this audio on Bee Natural properties with testimonials: 

All products containing honey, including Bee Natural, should not be consumed by children under 1 year of age, as they do not yet have a developed digestive system capable of processing botulism spores sometimes present in honey. Only a mature intestinal tract, in humans over 12 months old, can safely process honey that may contain botulism spores. The FDA has not evaluated these statements.

Q

If someone is showing a very high (highest) alkaline level, is that a problem? Does he/she need to lower their alkaline level to the range or level recommended for the human body?

A Yes. Every organic entity has a uniquely perfect pH for optimal homeostasis, including water, soil, plants, birds, bees, fish, humans, etc. Many scientists share 7.365 is perfect pH for humans. They also share it's very difficult for disease to grow in an alkaline environment, yet it can flourish in an acidic environment. The National Institute of Health states being alkaline is vital to health. Buy one pH Test Kit for $10 and test 100 people. If they are less than 7.365 share your catalog and the health benefits of your pH & Fitness products. Ask each person if they'd like to order at Retail, Wholesale or Below Wholesale. Direct them to your JOIN page. That was easy!
Q What is Magnesium Stearate and why is it used?
A Magnesium stearate is a natural substance also known as magnesium salt. It is used by our formulators to facilitate nutrient absorption and has helpful lubricating qualities, which prevent ingredients from sticking together during the manufacturing process. Studies have shown magnesium stearate may assist with the release-time of active ingredients without reducing the bioavailability of those ingredients. Our magnesium stearate is specifically sourced from organic or wildcrafted vegetables, is 100% water soluble, 100% free from toxins and it earns a perfect zero score at www.EWG.Org/SkinDeep (a highly credited 3rd party database which rates ingredients on a zero to 10 scale, zero indicates zero toxicity).
Q Is it more expensive to diffuse essential oils directly from the bottle vs. diluting in a diffuser that uses water?
A The Attach-An-Oil Diffuser is proven to be more cost effective than diffusers that use water, due to the settings dial. Customers may set the amount of oil diffused to a very low emission. One 15 ml bottle, diffused on the lowest setting, often lasts well over a 2 months (depending on the frequency of emissions). Diffusers using water need changed and cleaned daily to avoid bacteria and fungal growth. Plus many do not have settings for low emission. They also diffuse more oil because the oil is emitted with the water.
Q Will going into and staying in the sun speed up or facilitate or make Sun Shine Lotion work faster? I know it does not protect from the sun.
A

No, staying in the sun does not speed up Sun Shine Lotion's ability to work and bronze your skin. While Sun Shine is not a sun screen, you may apply Sun Shine Lotion and, of you choose to also go into the sun, you'd receive tanning in two ways:

  1. Through our product
  2. Through the UV rays of the sun
Q Is it ok to send someone a sample container that I fill from my stock? Is it ok that it is not prepackaged? Am I liable?
A Please enjoy the prepackaged samples on your website if you're concerned about offing a sample to someone: 1. Mini Earth Greens 2. Mini Super Reds 3. Mini NaPCA Mist 4. Lip Balms 5. Mini Sanitizer.  6. New Sample Coming Soon! Most Wellness Warriors enjoy ordering our sample containers and passing samples of the products that have impacted their life positively. Or they enjoy making a 7.365 pH Shake or shot glass of Super Reds for people in their kitchen. They enjoy sharing in this way just as much as they enjoy cooking a good meal in their kitchen and serving it to dinner guests.
Q I have been using the Laundry Liquid to clean the house. Will it kill all the germs like the Sanitizer? Can I use it as a pet shampoo or dish washer detergent?
A Laundry Liquid and Hand Candy are both excellent choices to clean home surfaces and dishes, etc. yet neither contain safe, pure, Stabilized Oxygen, the active ingredient in Sanitizer and Baby Shampoo & Body Foam. Stabilized Oxygen is the key to disinfecting and killing the germs, bacteria, viruses and fungi listed on the Efficacy Sheet that is on your website next to these 2 products. Yes you may use it as a pet shampoo because it is extremely mild, yet our Shower Gel smells wonderful and works well as a bubble bath for pets and infants. No do not use it as a dish washer detergent or gel because it will cause your machine to overflow with bubbles. 
Q What is Sodium Chlorite aka Stabilized Oxygen and is it safe?
A We fondly refer to this ingredient as “The Alkaline Antimicrobial”. It is safe, pure and highly effective. Stabilized Oxygen is the key to disinfecting and killing the germs, bacteria, viruses and fungi listed on the Efficacy Sheet. Read about this ingredient here: Sodium-Chlorite-Stabilized-Oxygen.pdf These pdfs are posted on your website, next to each product that contains Stabilized Oxygen.
Q What is the nutrition value of 7.365 pH Shake?
A The nutrition value of 7.365 pH Shake is so deep it's mind blowing. Enjoy the good! We offer an in depth look at the vegan protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and nutrient dense benefits of 7.365 pH Shake inside the 7.365 pH Shake Ingredient Guide and Recipe Book. Avoid the bad! This book also describes why soy, wheat, gluten, whey and dairy can be unhealthy for the human digestive system. This book is located next to 7.365 pH Shake on your website.
Q What is the best brand of Almond Milk to use for the 7.365 Shake?
A Did you know most almond milk has 50% more calcium than cow’s milk? Did you know humans are the only species to drink milk from a different species and continue to drink milk after being weened? We recommend choosing an organic almond milk, without additives, that blends well to create a creamy, smooth shake. An organic certification ensures the brand is automatically non-GMO. The secret ingredient to making a rich, creamy, smooth shake is the undetectable, tasteless addition of avocado. Use about 1/8 of an avocado per shake. Ensure you tell your guests which ingredients are in the shakes you serve. Prominently display a list of all ingredients used. This will help guests who avoid certain foods like nuts (almond milk) or avocados or strawberries, etc. due to allergies.
Q How old does a baby have to be to start using Essante Organics 7.365 pH Shake? May a newborn enjoy the shake or must they be a few months old?
A We of course cannot give medical advice regarding infants, instead we refer all new parents to their pediatrician for medical advice. Yet, as most of us know, breast feeding a newborn infant is best, because this allows the infant to receive immune factors as well as ideal & proper nutrition, exactly as nature intends. Mothers who are breast feeding, and enjoying 7.365 pH Shake as part of their healthy diet, can pass the organic, non-heat dehydrated, nutrient dense, whole food nutrition in 7.365 pH Shake from their breast milk to their baby. 7.365 pH Shake is the healthiest meal of the day; babies who receive 7.365 pH Shake, second hand from their mother's milk, are receiving excellent nutrition. Consult your pediatrician and nutritionist regarding studies on difficult to ingest proteins used in baby formulas including soy, wheat, whey and gluten. Ask your pediatrician to review the simple to digest proteins in 7.365 pH Shake including yellow pea and sprouted brown rice. Studies indicate the latter proteins are superior, healthier and far easier to digest and assimilate. Consult your pediatrician and nutritionist regarding studies on sweeteners used in baby formulas including processed, refined and bleached sugars or synthetic, carcinogenic sweeteners.Ask your pediatrician to review the healthy stevia leaf sweetener used in 7.365 pH Shake. Consult your pediatrician and nutritionist regarding the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and complete nutrition that is vital to an infant's development and ensure your infant is receiving all of those nutrients. Once an infant is old enough to ingest formula, most pediatricians and nutritionists will share the infant is then also old enough to enjoy 7.365 pH Shake, blended well with purified water. 7.365 pH Shake is not an infant formula, yet many pediatricians, nutritionists, doctors & parents, enjoy the organic, non-heat hydrated, nutrient dense, whole food, nutrition 7.365 pH Shake provides growing babies, toddlers, adolescents, teenagers and busy adults, alike. Yet we do not recommend this product for infants or toddlers, instead we leave that up to the child's pediatrician. The FDA has not evaluated these statements. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. Consult your doctor before making any changes to any diet, exercise or any health regime.
Q Which toxic free ingredient makes our shampoo lather so nicely?
A Most other brands of shampoo (and toothpaste and bubble bath, etc.) use Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS), the #1 cheap, toxic filler responsible for creating lather and foam (and health issues). Yet with Essanté Organics, our formulation team uses an ultimate trifecta blend of ingredients to create the rich, healthy lather in MangoBerry Shampoo. This ingredient trio also imparts creaminess and body, cleanses, and ultimately delivers organic bodybuilding proteins. First we use Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate: this ingredient is derived from 100% pure wild crafted coconut oil and it is our primary fatty acid surfactant. Secondly we add Coco-Betaine: this ingredient is derived from 100% pure wild crafted coconut oil and it is our secondary mineral salt surfactant. And thirdly we add Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate: this ingredient is derived from 100% pure wild crafted coconut oil and it is the coconut fatty acid of N-methyltaurine sodium salt. These and all the non-toxic ingredients in MangoBerry Shampoo are formulated with care and precision, to deliver a rich lather you’ll love and noticeably fuller hair you’ll love showing off. Unlike baby shampoos with hard chemicals MangoBerry Shampoo is mild enough to use as a baby shampoo on baby's first hair and it won't cause tears or harm the eyes. Yet we recommend Essanté Organics Baby Foam for Body and Hair.  
Q Are all complicated sounding ingredients truly bad for you?
A Typically, a good rule and funny saying to live by is, "If you can't pronounce it's not healthy, except for quinoa". Yet some of our toxic free ingredients, while a little hard to pronounce, are very healthy. So perhaps, a better phrase to live by might be, "Don't judge the book by its title". If anyone wishes to know about an ingredient have them email it to ProductQuestions@EssanteWorldwide.com. We will share the phonetic spelling of the ingredient, the botanical or mineral it is derived from and its key benefits.
Q Are all Essanté Organics ingredients 100% free from all harmful toxins, and do all ingredients rate 0 (zero) on ewg.org/skindeep?
A Yes. All Essanté Organics ingredients are 100% certified ToxicFreeTM, organic, wild crafted and/or EcoCertTM. Each ingredient is guaranteed to be 100% non-GMO plant or mineral derived*.  All ingredients are sourced only from plants or minerals which have zero harmful, manmade toxins or chemicals present.  

*ToxicFree® Citrus Body Butter and USDA Organic Lip Balms contain Bees Wax.
*Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils & Kids Pops contain Omega oils sourced from Deep Sea Atlantic Fish.
*Capsules use gelatin sourced from Deep Sea Atlantic Fish.

Essanté Organics Titanium Dioxide is a 100% certified ToxicFreeTM and certified EcoCertTM mineral pigment which occurs in nature. Minerals cannot be classified as organic. This 100% pure mineral, Titanium Dioxide, provides brightness and whitening power and functions as a stain remover and tooth whitener. Essanté Organics mines Titanium Dioxide in the wild, untouched regions of South America, where the land is never treated with pesticide chemicals and the entire region is clear of acid rain. Our double certified ingredient is unique from most other Titanium Dioxide ingredients on the market, which, if mined in commercial areas with acid rain, can be toxic.

Due to perception and feedback on Titanium Dioxide as "appearing" to be above 0 (zero) at ewg.org/skindeep it was removed. EWG rates the cheap, uncertified Titanium Dioxide used by most companies, they do not show a rating for our double certified ToxicFreeTM and EcoCertTM Titanium Dioxide, for this reason Essanté Organics removed it from Sparkle Tooth Polish in 2014.

Q

Are Power Pops just for people who want to lose weight and are they a good choice for people looking to gain healthy weight?

A Power Pops are specifically designed to facilitate metabolism, weight loss and curb appetite. Anyone looking to loose weight or maintain their weight can greatly benefit from Power Pops. Yet someone who is looking to gain weight should not use Power Pops. If they are looking for a candy to enjoy, we recommend Kids Pops, which contain vitamins and minerals without weight loss ingredients. If they are looking to gain weight (read below).
Q Is 7.365 pH Shake just for people who want to lose weight or maintain weight or is it a healthy choice for people looking to gain healthy weight too?
A 7.365 pH Shake is great for those looking to loose, maintain or gain healthy muscle weight. It's the healthiest, most nutrient dense meal of the day so people of all sizes and ages (from non-nursing age and beyond) should make it a part of their healthy diet. For those looking to gain weight with 7.365 pH Shake, we recommend adding one or more of the following ingredients to the blender as you mix your 7.365 ph Shake. The top healthy foods that facilitate weight gain include: olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, peanut butter, almond butter, nuts, oatmeal, granola, yogurt, bananas or your favorite skinless fruit (removing the skin removes fiber). PS: nursing moms who ingest 7.365 pH Shake can pass the nutrition on from their breast milk to baby.... even nursing age kids deserve the best!
Q Why does my product look / smell / taste different from the last time I ordered it?
A When ordering products with organic ingredients, inconsistency is often commonplace. Your first product differed from your second due to season changes in relation to the whole food content and raw ingredients we use. Sometimes nutrition powders, etc. differ in color, texture, taste etc. because they are not bleached to be the same color, nor are they synthetic (reproducible). They are cultivated organically or wild crafted and therefore product batches can vary, especially from season to season. Here is a great analogy: next time you're at the grocery store compare all of the brands of organic celery stalks. You will see some are darker and some are lighter. No imagine we purchase and dry those same stalks and place them into Earth Greens Powder. Sometimes the powder may appear lighter and sometimes the powder may appear darker, based on the batch of organic celery we purchase and use during formulation.
Q Can Shine Self Bronzing & Tanning Lotion also be used as sunscreen to protect against UV rays while out in the sun?
A

No. This product is not a sun screen and we cannot guarantee it will stop all UV rays. About Sun Shine: Welcome to simple, quick, dazzling, 100% Certified Toxic Free tanning! Sun Shine is the first of its kind; it is the very first chemical free self tanning lotion in the world!

About Sun Shine: Sun Shine is a stand alone moisturizing and self tanning product that can be used by itself all over the body including the face. It is 100% Certified Toxic Free, odorless, colorless (white), will not streak and it will not come off in the shower.

Yet, even just one application will typically last up to 4 days. Prior to using Sun Shine: We recommend using Essanté Organics Bamboo Experience Liquid Luffa, to exfoliate and remove any flaky dead skin cells, prior to applying Sun Shine, yet it is not necessary. We also recommend taking your bath or shower first, then applying Sun Shine afterwards. After using Sun Shine: We recommend applying Rejuvenate Facial Moisturizer or z3 Facial Moisturizer after you apply Sun Shine. Sun Shine is 100% certified Toxic Free without harmful chemical ingredients found in other self tanners. It helps increase your skin's vitamin D receptors & in turn can boost immunity.

Q Does the z3 Trio, Rejuvenate, Sun Shine or any other Essanté Organics product have SPF; are any considered a sun screen?
A

No none of our products have SPF or are considered sun screens. Yet we do use ingredients from nature which are scientifically proven to have UV sun ray blocking abilities & which are know to assist with reversing the signs of sun damaged skin:

  • Green tea leaf - Rejuvenate Moisturizer
  • White tea leaf - z3 Anti-aging Repair Cream Moisturizer
  • Coconut oil - inside Sweet & Shower Gel and multiple products
  • Omegas - inside Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils
  • Leafy greens - inside Earth Greens Power and Capsules
  • Raspberry seed - inside Super Reds Powder
Q

Will there be new Below Wholesale Packs / Go-Green Packs created, for example an Essential Oils or Baby Care Below Wholesale Pack or will we have the option to customize a Below Wholesale Pack?

A

No. We only offer a few Below Wholesale Packs (BWPs), by design, for the following reasons:

  1. Each allows the new Executive to enjoy our most popular daily-use products, the products they are most likely to re-order monthly.
  2. Each offers products the majority of population and people of all ages use regularly (every single day).
  3. All other products, such as essential oils and baby care (which are not used by everyone or all ages) can be ordered a-la-carte.
  4. We will launch new categories for example, pet care & makeup (make up), yet we will not create more Below Wholesale Packs based on categories.
  5. Offering too many Below Wholesale Pack options creates a confused mind & a confused mind will not make a decision (your prospect won't JOIN).
  6. All Below Wholesale Packs are offered at an extreme, one-time-only, introductory discount, therefore each contains our most cost effective products.
  7. Essante Organics profits very little on BWPs, they're offered as an incentive so Executives may easily begin living Toxic Free ASAP.
Q

Why is Essanté Organics Jojoba Carrier / Massage Oil the finest in the world with a high end price point?

A

There is a critical shortage of jojoba oil at present and we have a limited supply. Other suppliers may not be aware of the shortage, and thus have not adjusted their pricing accordingly. As more organic wild crafted regions and organic farms become available, our supply of this revered oil will also increase. We batch in smaller quantities, and while this is more expensive, it ensures the freshest quality possible. In addition our method of extraction is unrefined, the most expensive, yet pure method possible for extraction. The properties of our sacred Jojoba Oil are exceptional: odorless, easy to apply, golden color, rich antioxidant makeup, does not stain sheets or clothing, does not leave a residue on the skin, absorbs fully, has a 36 month shelf life and is safe for infants to elderly. Unscented Essanté Organics sacred, premier grade, golden Jojoba oil is 100% USDA Certified Organic. Jojoba Oil is the #1 used carrier and massage oil recommended by massage and aroma therapists to dilute and apply essential oils to the skin. Perhaps the exceptional glide, perfect silky feel, and full absorption is due to Jojoba's fatty acid profile; it is almost identical to ours. The Jojoba shrub grows in the most arid regions of the world including Arizona, where corporate is headquartered. Our organic Jojoba seeds, made of 50% precious oil, are harvested at the peak of the season, then meticulously pressed by our artisan pressers to create one of the most antioxidant rich massage and carrier oils in the world. As you experience Essanté Organics USDA Certified Organic Jojoba oil, it will be forever remembered and requested often.

The Fatty Acid Composition of Essante Organics Jojoba Oil is superior:

  • Palmitic Acid C16:0 max. 3.0%
  • Palmitoieic Acid C16:1 max.1.0%
  • Oleic Acid C18:1 5.0-15.0%
  • Gadoleic Acid C20:1 65.0-80%
  • Behenic Acid C22:0 max. 1.0%
  • Erucic Acid C22:1 10.0-22.0%
  • Nervonic Acid C24:1 max 3.5%
  • Other Fatty Acids max. 3.0%
Q Many times Stevia has an unpleasant aftertaste. Does Essanté Organics Super Reds Powder and 7.365 pH Shakes have this issue?
A

No, Stevia, the healthiest most alkaline sweetener in the world, typically does have an aftertaste, yet it does not transfer to our products. Our CMO personally dislikes the taste of Stevia greatly, yet our Super Reds Powder and 7.365 pH Shakes are outstandingly delicious and Stevia is not a detectable taste within our products. All products using Stevia are formulated in a way which the aftertaste is 100% not present. We offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee if you or your customer wish to try our products first, to determine if the taste is truly one they will love. Our guarantee allows customers to judge us based on our products, not based on what they have encountered in other company's formulations in the past. See the bottom of the JOIN page for our guarantee.

Q What is the ingredient cocamidopropyl betaine made of, is it safe, where does it come from, and why is it used?
A Cocamidopropyl betaine (CB), is a surfactant of choice, used by Essanté Organics’ formulators, for its mildness and its superior cleansing, foaming and moisturizing properties. This ingredient, unlike Sodium Laurel Sulfate, is a gentle ingredient used in many liquid skin & hair cleansers (for both adults & babies). This ingredient is derived from coconut an is clinically proven not to cause any toxicity or irritation.
Q What is the ingredient cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine made of, is it safe, where does it come from, and why is it used?
A Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine (CAHS) is a surfactant of choice, used by Essanté Organics’ formulators, for its mild cleansing and conditioning benefits and its uncommon ability to reduce static. This ingredient, unlike commonly used Sodium Laurel Sulfate, is ultra mild and clinically proven not harm or dry out the skin or hair. The Environment Canada Domestic Substance List classifies CAHS as a low health priority, not suspected to be potentially toxic or harmful to humans or the environment and it has no known adverse health effects.
Q What is a surfactant?
A

Surfactants are cleansing compounds that allow water to wash away oil and dirt, by lowering the surface tension between the water and the ingredient, making it easier to wet and cleanse your face, body and hair. For example, the surfactant cocamidopropyl betaine is like a beautiful coin with two sides: it is lipophilic (oil loving) as well as hydrophilic (water loving). This unique property gives this ingredient the ability to remove dirt and oil from skin & hair. Some surfactants are known to be much harsher on the skin than others, yet Essanté Organics only chooses surfactants / cleansers that are mild, effective and 100% free from toxins. Some surfactants contain contaminants that can be harsh on skin. Yet our surfactants are unique because they are derived from wild crafted plants, minerals, etc., which are free from toxins.

For example Our surfactants cocamidopropyl betaine (CB) and cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine (CAHS) are unique because each is derived from wild crafted coconut oil: sourced from regions where coconuts are wild grown, 100% free from toxins and untouched by man-made farming practices. In addition, all Essanté Organics ingredients, including our surfactants, are micro tested twice: at the raw ingredient level (the raw ingredient is tested at the purchase level) and at the batched product level (the completed product is tested before shipping). Our extensive testing, from the sourcing level through the production of the end product, ensures each product is 100% free from contamination and harmful toxins.

Q Which essential oils / products are best to repel, get rid or kill grasshoppers, crickets, beetles, flees, ticks, bedbugs, dust mites, mold, & mildew & how do I use it?
A

Eradicate grasshoppers, beetles, dust mites and crickets by killing them, their eggs and the mold, mildew and fungus they feed on, by using Cedarwood oil. Cedarwood oil is a natural fungicide and microbicide that kills mold and mildew spores on all surfaces, even porous materials. Direct treatment kills bugs on contact, so you can avoid using dangerous chemical sprays that can cause lung disorders in adults, children and pets. Cedarwood oil has a long term repellent effect also, insects hate the smell and the killing effect. Wide area treatment establishes a lasting barrier that discourages new crickets from entering the sprayed area. Crickets nest in dark, damp places where there’s plenty of mold to eat, typically under elevated structures where sunlight cannot penetrate and moisture is trapped. On hot days, they may jump into your home to escape the extreme heat.

Hotels:

hotels often use Cedarwood oil to eradicate bedbugs, dust mites and mold.

Pet owners and Veterinarians:

both use Cedarwood oil to kill fleas, ticks and mites on dogs and other large animals.

Indoor insect spray:

Add 20 drops of Cedarwood oil to a 4oz spray bottle of NaPCA Mist. Order our trigger sprayer and attach the trigger sprayer to the bottle of NaPCA Mist for easy, quick spraying. Spray the perimeter of your basement or baseboards, and the seams where walls and ceilings and window frames meet. We recommend ordering our trigger sprayer.

Outdoor insect spray:

Add 40 drops of Cedarwood oil to a 4oz spray bottle of NaPCA Mist. Order our trigger sprayer and attach the trigger sprayer to the bottle of NaPCA Mist for easy, quick spraying. Spray the perimeter of your home and all dark damp places. A good treatment early in the spring can prevent future infestation. Do not spray on grass or plants as it may be too strong and can kill foliage.

Animal use:

Use Cedarwood oil on dogs older than 6 months of age & large animals only. Do not use Cedarwood oil in households with cats. While our essential oils are 100 % organic and environmentally safe, and although allergic reactions are rare, Cedarwood oil is NOT to be used on cats, either directly or indirectly, due to their missing liver enzymes which prevent proper metabolizing of this and many oils (see safe oils for cats below). Nor is Cedarwood oil recommended for use on very small pets such as: Hamsters, Gerbils, Rodents, Guinea Pigs, Spiders, Tarantulas, Snakes and many other small animals. For these small animals, consult your veterinarian for more appropriate methods. Only use Cedarwood oil on humans, horses, cattle, and dogs older than 6 months of age. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Cedarwood oil has been registered as pesticide since 1960. The EPA defines a pesticide as any substance intended for preventing, destroying, repelling or mitigating the effect of any pest. Cedarwood oil does not kill fleas; it only works as a natural agent to repel them. You may add Cedarwood oil to pet shampoo or our 4oz NaPCA Mist (to spray bedding, etc.). You should add Cedarwood oil drops according to your animal's weight. For a 10 pound animal, use 1 drop of Cedarwood oil per 50 drops of carrier oil or mist. Some animals are allergic to Cedarwood oil. As a pet owner, you will discover if this is true of your pet if he is exposed to Cedarwood oil. Take a moderate approach when beginning to use Cedarwood oil to determine if your pet is susceptible. Possible symptoms to watch for are watery eyes, runny nose and excessive scratching. Discontinue the use of Cedarwood oil if you believe your pet may be allergic.

Q Which Essential Oils, when diluted or diffused are safe for cats?
A

Clary Sage

Elemi

Frankincense

Geranium

Helichrysum

Idaho Balsam Fir

Lavender

Roman Chamomile

Rosemary

Valerian

Consult your aromatherapist for proper dilution and application. Consult your veterinarian before using any product on any pet.

Q Which products and essential oils are best to use for dandruff or cradle cap?
A

These are medical conditions and diagnoses, and per the FDA we are not able to use these terms, so let’s talk about supporting a healthy scalp and skin and eliminating itchy, flakey skin.

What is dandruff:

dandruff (also seborrheic dermatitis, seborrhea, seborrheic eczma, sebopsoriasis, pityriasis capitis) is a common dry scalp condition which usually includes irritation and inflammation resulting in the shedding of dead skin cells or flaking of white to yellowish skin scales, often followed by itching and occasionally reddened skin. Dandruff can occur in other places besides the scalp such as the ears, face, chest and skin folds. Even bald heads can be afflicted. Dandruff can occur at any age, in any race or ethnicity, and it has touched almost every global region. Dandruff is primarily a cosmetic problem and is not considered a serious condition. Cradle cap is the term used when this condition affects the scalp of infants. It is more common in men, and individuals with Parkinson’s Disease and AIDS.

What causes dandruff:

the hair itself does not cause dandruff, it is caused when the scalp becomes over dry. Scientists are not sure what causes dandruff, yet they theorize one or more of the following causes it: over washing hair, the use of harsh chemicals, yeast-like organisms, hormones and/or stress.

Problem #1: Dandruff is caused by excessive shampooing (and use of other products) especially products containing harsh chemicals. Using shampoos, hairsprays, gels and coloring agents with harsh chemicals, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), is proven to irritate the scalp and dry it out, exacerbating many skin conditions, including dandruff. Over shampooing or daily shampooing often robs the scalp of its naturally occurring oils.

Solution #1: Use chemical free products and allow them time to work. To allow the scalp to produce its healthy essential oils it is best to shampoo less, 2-3 times a week. In between shampoos, to avoid looking oily, rub pH balanced baking soda or organic corn starch into the roots of your hair. This will also give you lift and volume. Use Essanté Organics 100% chemical free Shampoo, Conditioner, Restore Leave-In Hair Serum and Captivate Hair Gel. Allow time for treatments to penetrate and work. Apply NourishMint Conditioner (with organic Peppermint Essential Oil) to your scalp and hair and leave it in for 5 minutes before rinsing. Continue use for at least 90 days. All Essanté Organics hair care products contain powerful toxic free botanicals proven to minimize or eliminate skin conditions. Enjoy the testimonials at www.Facebook.com/EssanteOrganicsLLCAs you follow this regimen your scalp should begin producing its own natural essential oils, leaving the skin on your head well moisturized and free from flakes. The organic Peppermint Essential Oil in NourishMint Conditioner will initially tingle greatly if you are not pH balanced. Over time, as your skin becomes pH balanced, the tingle will lessen, a telling sign that you are becoming healthier.

Problem #2: Dandruff is caused by hormonal imbalances and low pH levels. Products containing hormone disrupting ingredients and chemicals including parabens and soy can lead to hormonal imbalance. A poor diet including fatty, sugary and acidic foods and beverages can result in a low pH level.

Solution #2: Use pH balanced nutrition products and allow them time to work. Use Essanté Organics Bee Natural Tabs. They are sweet, melt-in-your-mouth tablets and they are excellent for hormone support. Enjoy the testimonials on www.Facebook.com/EssanteOrganicsLLC Use Essanté Organics Supreme pH Drops and pH Test Kit to monitor and regulate your pH level. 7.365 is perfect pH or Alkalinity for humans. Read about the health benefits of all Essanté Organics pH Nutrition Products (see the online catalog or shop).

Problem #3: Dandruff is caused by 2 fungi, pitrosporum ovale and malassezia globosa. These fungi usually live on our body at all times without causing issues. However, if they become overgrown, they cause skin conditions including dandruff.

Solution #3: Use chemical free anti-fungal agents to kill excess fungi.

Use Essanté Organics Sanitizer Spray to instantly kill fungi, bacteria and viruses on contact. In addition, use Super Reds Powder as a delicious yet powerful internal anti-fungal. And use Essanté Organics USDA Organic Essential Oils with anti-fungal properties including: Clove Bud and Tea Tree and Cedarwood Atlas. Add 5 drops of each directly into your shampoo or conditioner or both. Or add 5 drops of each into a 4oz Jojoba carrier oil or 4oz NaPCA Mist and rub well into the scalp (avoid getting it in the rest of your hair). Leave in for one hour, remove by shampooing. Shampoos with at least 5% tea tree oil have been shown to effectively treat dandruff according to several medical studies at pubmed.org.

Brush your hair more frequently from the scalp to the tips. Brushing your hair after you shower, midday and before bed will help stimulate and distribute the oils which naturally occur in your scalp, and it will distribute the oils over the entire surface of your head.

Avoid stress and stressful situations. Stress can cause dandruff so take healthy measures that are proven to relieve stress including morning exercise, a midday walk after lunch, enjoying Happiness Essential Oil in a diffuser at night, getting plenty of sleep, etc.

Eat healthy foods. What you put into your body has an impact on what your body produces and how it responds. Eating an overabundance of unhealthy fast foods and sugary foods, etc. will often result in many skin conditions including acne, dandruff, psoriasis, etc.

How can I treat my dandruff: Medical treatment of dandruff usually consists of shampoos containing toxic chemicals including: salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione, or coal tar. Medical doctors also recommend steroid creams, yet these cannot be used long term due to the many cumulative side effects. Essanté Organics USDA organic essential oils are a natural alternative, which allow many people to experience a healthy scalp. Essential oils are the concentrated “immune system” of plants and herbs. Essential oils with properties that support a healthy scalp and assist with flakey skin include: tea tree, cedarwood, lavender, rosemary, peppermint, patchouli, and Roman chamomile essential oil. These oils can be used individually or in combination to reverse your scalp condition(s).

Do not use the following essential oils on newborns, infants or any child under the age of 10. Consult your pediatrician and aromatherapist before using essential oils on children under 10. Please refer to the instant answer for “Which oils are safe for children” or “age chart”:

Clove Bud essential oil has powerful anti-fungal properties

Tea Tree essential oil has powerful anti-fungal properties

Cedarwood Atlas essential oil has powerful anti-fungal properties

Peppermint can calm inflammation, relieve itching, & has a cooling effect

Lavender has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, & revitalizing properties. It is used for all types of skin disorders.

Patchouli has anti-fungal properties and is great on dry skin. It also helps to stimulate new tissue growth.

Rosemary increases circulation to the scalp and is a common component of commercial shampoos.

Roman chamomile can be used to clam dry itchy skin. It also has a calming effect on the psyche.

Stop the fungal frenzy recipe: use Essanté Organics USDA Organic Essential Oils with anti-fungal properties including Clove Bud and Tea Tree and Cedarwood Atlas. Add 5 drops of each directly into your shampoo or conditioner or both. Or add 5 drops of each into a 4oz Jojoba carrier oil or 4oz NaPCA Mist and rub well into the scalp (avoid getting it in the rest of your hair). Leave in for one hour, remove by shampooing. Shampoos with at least 5% tea tree oil have been shown to effectively treat dandruff according to several medical studies at pubmed.org.

3x a week recipe: add 4 drops of each of the above essential oils into your 8 oz MangoBerry Shampoo or 8 oz NourishMint Conditioner and use 3x a week (if you don’t like the smell of one you may increase the drops of your preferred choice – simply add 16 drops of any combination of the essential oils listed above).

Overnight recipe: Add 4 drops of any of the above essential oils to 1 ounce of Jojoba carrier oil and massage into your scalp. Leave the treatment on overnight. In the morning, shampoo using MangoBerry Shampoo Concentrate and condition using NourishMint Conditioner.

Apple cider vinegar recipe: Add three drops of any of the above essential oils per each one ounce of apple cider vinegar, soak hair and scalp then rinse. After rinsing, leave it sit on your hair and scalp for 5 minutes, then shampoo and condition as usual.

Recipe for skin conditions seborrhea dermatitis on the face or body: make a bath oil or a massage oil by mixing three to four drops of each therapeutic essential oil (above) to one ounce of Jojoba carrier oil, then add to bath water or massage directly into areas of concern (no need to rinse off, allow the bath oil or massage oil to remain on your skin).

With scalp conditions practice persistence and patience: you can expect these recipes to deliver improvement and often times correction within 3-4 weeks. It’s important to avoid other issues that may be exacerbating an unhealthy scalp including: shampooing too frequently or infrequently (2-3 times a week is best) or using heavy, oil-based products that clog hair follicles.

Children are smaller in size and have more permeable skin, thus therapeutic essential oils have a quicker and far stronger effect on children. Some powerful oils, including Peppermint and Eucalyptus, can trigger a child’s autonomic reflex and can significantly slow down the child’s brain, heart, lungs, circulation and breathing. In addition, the child’s liver and kidneys should not be overtaxed with anything in excess, including but not limited to essential oils, because much of what goes into their small bodies is processed through the liver and kidneys and, over time, damage can occur to one or both of these organs if they are overtaxed. For these reasons, practice extra caution and understand “less-is-best” when using essential oils on newborns, infants, babies, toddlers, children and adolescents.

Essential oils are safe for children 10+ years:

By this age, most essential oils are safe for topical use or diffusion for children, though you should always be sure to slowly introduce each oil individually, to be sure there are no adverse reactions or allergies. Peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils are all avoided in younger children because they contain a chemical constituent called cineol 1,8 and menthol. According to Robert Tisserand, in the newest edition of Essential Oil Safety.

Diaper Rash:

• Add 5 drops Essanté Organics USDA Organic Lavender Essential Oil to 2 oz. Essante Organics Baby Lotion: apply to skin
• Add 20 drops of Lavender Oil to 8 oz. Essanté Organics Baby Wash & Body Foam: apply to skin
• Baby Wash & Body Foam includes Stabilized Oxygen which can help kill bacteria: see the efficacy sheet next the to product inside "Info & Studies"

Congestion:

When choosing a healthy alternative to aid with congestion, for children over age 2, Pine, Spruce, Fir, and Cypress essential oils are good alternatives to Eucalyptus and Peppermint essential oils. Avoid Ponderosa (Huon) Pine.

Teething:

Mist diluted German Chamomile straight on baby’s gums for teething relief. Or diluted Lavender essential oil can be applied externally to baby’s jaw line or cheek for teething relief.

Bath Tub Time:

It is important to note, when adding essential oils to a child’s (or adult’s) bath water, the essential oil must first be diluted in a water-soluble carrier, such as raw unfiltered honey or vegetable glycerin. Adding essential oils straight to bathing water, without a carrier, can cause skin irritation, as the oil will sit on top of the water.

Only massage the feet:

For safest topical application, it is ideal to massage a young baby’s feet with a diluted essential oil. Avoid applying oils to the neck, chest and back.

One essential oil at a time:

Slowly introduce one essential oil at a time. With all babies, most parents have not yet discovered possible allergies or sensitivities yet. Do not introduce more than one essential oil in one day. Signs of sensitivity, if present, will appear around 15 - 30 minutes after inhaling or applying a diluted essential oil.

How and when to use Coat of Armor:

Renowned author and Aromatherapist, Robert Tisserand, recommends the oils inside "Coat of Armor" not be used on children under 10 years old. The oils in this blend may be used after age 10, yet they must be diffused or diluted for safe topical application. For example, cinnamon bark essential oil, inside Coat of armor, should be avoided for dermal use in all ages, as it is too irritating to the skin. Dilute Coat of Armor and use it with your 10 year old (or older child) in one of the following ways:

  • Use 1 oz of carrier oil with 5-10 drops of Coat of armor & massage feet. Do not apply to the neck, chest or back.
  • Diffuse Coat of Armor for 15 minutes at a time.
  • Mist Coat of Armor and inhale using 4 oz of Essanté Organics NaPCA Mist (or distilled water) and 15-30 drops maximum of Coat of Armor. This mist makes a great disinfectant. Mist the air, bed linens, etc. Yet remember, less-is-more.
  • Apply the mist to a clean, dry washcloth and wipe down: phones, bathrooms, doorknobs, countertops, etc. Yet remember, less-is-more.

How and when to use Eucalyptus:

For adults, eucalyptus oil is generally safe when applied to the skin and it’s wonderful when diffused. Do not apply eucalyptus oil, eucalyptus salve or eucalyptus chest rub on the face or nose or chest of any child under the age of 2. People with asthma, seizures, liver disease, kidney disease, or low blood pressure should not use eucalyptus without first talking to their doctor and Aromatherapist. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should not use eucalyptus. Eucalyptus oil is toxic when taken by mouth.

Consult your pediatrician and aromatherapist before using essential oils on children under 10 years of age.

Q What are the best products / essential oils for Cellulitis?
A

Cellulitis is a medical condition and per the FDA we cannot refer to medical conditions, so let's talk about stopping bacteria. Sanitizer is the best product to use to kill many bacteria, fungi and viruses including the 2 bacteria that typically cause Cellulitis; streptococcus and staphylococcus. Refer to the efficacy sheet next to Sanitizer inside the "Info & Studies" tab. The best essential oils to use topically for cellulitis are Tee Tree oil and Frankincense, due to their antibacterial qualities. Refer to the pdf document "info & Studies" tab titled "How To Use Essential Oils". In addition one capsule of vitamin D each day is helpful in supporting immunity. Cellulitis is a bacterial infection that forms on the skin when certain types of bacteria enter the skin through a lesion or crack in the skin. Typically cellulitis affects the skin on the lower legs, yet it can occur on any part of the body and may range in depth from the surface tissue, to the dermis layers, to the lymph nodes, and even the bloodstream. No matter the severity, symptoms include redness, swelling, tenderness, pain, warmth or heat to the touch, and fever. If the condition worsens, the area of redness may expand. Additionally, small red spots or broken blisters may appear on the affected skin. Complication can occur if left untreated. Implementing healthy lifestyle choices including Sanitizer, Tea Tree and Frankincense Essential Oils and Vitamin D can benefit and support a healthy body.

Q How do I use Essential oils, including Cedarwood for conditions including UTI (Uterine Tract Infection)?
A

UTI or Uterine Tract Infection is a medical condition and per the FDA we cannot refer to medical conditions, so let's talk about female infections. Place several drops of Cedarwood oil in Jojoba Oil or Citrus Body Butter & rub onto belly or add to NaPCA and mist the belly. Please refer to the PDF titled "How to Use Essential Oils" next to each oil inside the tab titled "Info and Studies" for drops per carrier ratio.

The FDA has not evaluated these statements. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. Ask your medical doctor, health care provider, nutritionist, and certified aroma therapist for their professional advise on the above.

Q What are Essanté Organics farming practices and inspection practices?
A We take great care to never deplete the organic soils of our farms or negatively disrupt the regions where ingredients are sourced. Our raw ingredient farms and wild crafted locations are in geographical areas where the plant species is indigenous and therefore proven to be the most potent. For example, we obtain Lavender from the high altitude mountains of Bulgaria. We obtain our Frankincense from Ethiopia. We obtain Bergamot from Italy. Essanté Organics’ scientists & formulation team members select herbs, plants, flowers bark & roots from their ingenious lands, because it allows superior delivery of true therapeutic grade oils, the finest, most potent oils on earth. We harvest each ingredient at its optimal time, for peak potency. Here are two examples: Ylang-Ylang complete essential oil begins with the picking process. The Ylang- Ylang flower is picked at the peak hour, between 3:30am and 4:30am, then it is distilled that very same morning. Bulgarian, high-altitude Lavender is not distilled for at least 6 hours because distilling lavender too soon after harvest creates a poor grade Lavender. Distillation must be cold pressed unless our patented warming process is necessary (where heating never exceeds 115 degrees). We never high heat pasteurize because it is proven to degrade the nutritional potency of the ingredient. This is why our essential oils are not for consumption: consumable oils, by law, must be high heat pasteurized 3 times to make them “food grade”. In addition, each raw ingredient is tested by reputable 3rd party inspectors at the cultivation level, harvesting level, transport level, and entry level into our facilities. Once all ingredients are combined, the finished product is then micro tested by a reputable 3rd party inspector. All ingredients are are 100% raw, toxic free, wild crafted and organic. For these reasons our products deliver superior results. In closing, it’s important to note we never test on animals. Enjoy the detailed answers located on your website inside Quality Commitment and inside the pdf documents next to each product.
Q Q: Does warming or heating honey make it toxic?
A No. According to an AYU study at the US National Library Of Medicine dated April 2010, the heating of pure honey increases its pH and antioxidant levels, and by itself is not toxic when heated. However, when honey is mixed with ghee (a butter primarily used in India which comes from buffalos or cows) that is another story (and the basis for the rumor). Honey mixed with ghee that is heated to 140 degrees produces HMF (hydroxyl-methyl furfuraldehyde) which may produce harmful effects in due course. This is a personal opinion gathered from the study referenced. This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA & it is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. We recommend only gaining medical advice from your physician and health care providers. Do not feed honey or products containing honey to children under 1 year of age. Search botulism for more information.
Q What is the shelf life of all products?
A We have a 2 year minimum shelf life on all products. Each product is coded on the bottom of the package to maintain quality control. Enjoy!
Q What's the best way to store products, in the refrigerator or at room temperature?
A Room temperature is best. Refrigeration can degrade nutrient content of all fruits, vegetables and products containing nutrient dense ingredients.
Q Can a pregnant or nursing mother eat honey and Bee Natural Tabs?
A Honey and Bee Natural Tabs are not a problem for mom to eat. The gut flora of adults and children over a year old are able to fend off the botulism spores that may be present in honey, and render them harmless. Since the spores would be killed in your gastrointestinal tract, they would not make it into your bloodstream, and therefore cannot be present in your breast milk.
Q Which Essanté Organics products can and cannot be applied / used / taken / ingested during pregnancy or nursing? Which products are safe for a mother who is pregnant or nursing?
A We recommend all pregnant and nursing mothers consult their certified aromatherapist for which USDA organic essential oils to use and which ones not to use during pregnancy and nursing. Some essential oils are not safe to use during these times. In addition, many pregnant and nursing mothers use Earth Greens Powder, Super Reds Powder, 7.365 pH Shake, Bee Natural, Supreme pH Drops and our supplements after consulting their OBGYN. Each woman's body and level of health is unique, therefore it's important your physician evaluates your health history and the supplement facts on each label of every product you enjoy from fast food, to candy at the movie theater, to healthy, pH balanced, nutrient dense Essante Organics products. With Essanté Organics everyone can "Enjoy The Good" and "Avoid The Bad". The nutrients a pregnant or nursing mother applies to her skin or consumes orally will pass to her baby and that's great news.
Q Can an infant or baby under 1 year of age eat honey and Bee Natural Tabs?
A No. A baby’s gut can’t defend itself against the botulism spores that may be present in honey (an ingredient in Bee Tabs), and so the spores can colonize the baby’s intestinal tract, germinate and release botulinum neurotoxin. As a result, honey is not recommended for babies under one year old. It’s recommended that you avoid giving a baby under one year of age any product that contains honey, for example Honey Nut Cheerios, Honey Oatmeal, Honey/Nut bars, Bee Natural Tabs, etc. or make sure the cooking process kills any botulism spores that might be present. Botulism spores are very heat resistant – the toxin is less resistant. This is why there is a FDA warning label on all products containing honey.

For children over 1 year of age: Offer 1/2 to a 1/3 of the adult dosage shown on the packaging of Bee Natural.

Q Is it normal or have other people experienced a rash or peeling when using lotions including Citrus Body Butter, Rejuvenate or z3 products?
A We've not had anyone report peeling of skin while using Citrus Body Butter. We've not had anyone report a rash regarding Rejuvenate. We have had people report initial, temporary redness or "blotchy" skin when beginning the use of one or more of the z3 products. This is a result of extra circulation, blood flow and collagen production which allows the skin to heal and look more youthful. If a reaction persists, please ask your doctor about possible sensitivities to certain citrus ingredients in Citrus Body Butter or the Almond Nut ingredient in our z3 products.
Q What is Gelatin?
A

Gelatin is a distinctive collagen protein that contains an unusually high level of the cyclic amino acids; proline and hydroxyproline. Collagen consists of three helical polypeptide chains connected by intermolecular cross links.

What is our Gelatin sourced from?
Ours is sourced from USA deep sea Atlantic fish. Gelatin is obtained by the partial hydrolysis of collagen derived from the skin, connective tissue and bones of animals. The top four commercial sources of gelatin are Cowhide, Pork Skin, Fish Skin & Bones (ossein). Our gelatin is sourced and obtained from fish skin and fish bone, it is Kosher and Gluten Free.

Does Gelatin occur in nature?
Gelatin does not occur freely in nature, and cannot be recovered from horns, hoofs and other non-collagen parts. There are no plant sources of gelatin, and there is no relationship between gelatin and vegetable gelatin (such as seaweed extracts), they are completely different.

How is our Gelatin made?
Gelatin is recovered from collagen by partial purified hydrolysis. The purified form Gelatin is colorless, transparent, odorless and tasteless. It dissolves in hot water and forms a gel or jelly upon cooling. When placed in cold water, gelatin takes up five to ten times its own weight and swells to an elastic transparent mass.

Is all Gelatin the same?
No. Our gelatin is Food Grade, Kosher, Gluten Free and meets regulations established by the U.S.A Food & Drug Administration and Health Canada. In addition, our "high bloom" gelatin is tested and “Graded” according to strength. The Grade is based on the “Bloom” test and the higher the Bloom number the higher the gel set. The Bloom is the measurement of force, in grams, required to depress a standard plunger 4mm into the surface of a 6.67% gelatin sample at 10ºC (50ºF). The firmer the set of gelatin, the higher the bloom strength. Gelatin is usually priced according to the gelling ability; consequently the higher the bloom, the higher the price. Gelatin can also be classified according to its ability to meet various testing standards. Our gelatin testing standards are established by the most current US Pharmacopoeia / National Formulary and the G.M.I.A. The N.F.

Tests Include:

  1. Identification
  2. Microbial Limits (Total Count, E.Coli, Salmonella)
  3. Residue on Ignition (Ash)
  4. Odor & Water - Insoluble Substances
  5. Sulfur Dioxide (Optimized Monier - Williams)
  6. Arsenic
  7. Heavy Metals
Q Has the FDA approved Sparkle Tooth Polish / Toothpaste or any of our products?
A No, at present the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) does not regulate any personal care products, supplements, nutrition products, essential oils, etc. Currently they only regulate foods and drugs. However the FDA does regulate all labels on these products.
Q Has Sparkle Tooth Polish / Toothpaste been analyzed?
A Yes. Enjoy the Efficacy Sheet on the active ingredient Stabilized Oxygen, next to the product on the website - see "Info/Studies".
Q Is there a difference between Tooth Polish and Toothpaste?
A No. There is no difference, the word polish and paste are interchangeable.
Q What are the ingredients (components) of Sparkle Tooth Polish Paste?
A The ingredients (components) of each product are shared next to the product on the website - see "Label Facts".
Q Which essential oils assist with strength, courage, self esteem and balanced feelings?
A

Happiness Blend - relaxing, calming, anxiety, hyper children, stress, depression, uplifting

Bergamot - self love, self acceptance, self approval (see website for details)

Clove Bud - confidence, inner strength (see website for details)

Energy Blend - delivers strength, uplifts mood, euphoric (see website for details)

Q Does pHreshen Up Deodorant use baking soda or corn starch or bees wax as a drying agent and wetness shield?
A All three. the first two are drying agents and bees wax provides a shield against wetness between your underarm and clothing. All ingredients (labels) are posted next to each product. Here is the Phreshen Up Deodorant label for your convenience. pHreshen Up is not an antiperspirant, as perspiring is a vital body function to release toxins. We do not use the toxic and carcinogenic (cancer causing) ingredient aluminum as all antiperspirants do. pHreshen Up is a toxic free and certified organic product.
Q Do any ingredients in Essanté Organics Laundry Liquid kill bacteria, viruses or fungus?
A No. None of the ingredients kill bacteria. Laundry Liquid is excellent to remove stains and refresh clothing. Often times, high heat water or dryer temperatures can kill bacteria. If this is a concern, we recommending first spraying an inconspicuous (unseen) area of the item with Sanitizer, to ensure it won't discolor the item. The efficacy sheet next to Sanitizer (inside the "Info. & Studies" tab) shares the many bacteria, fungi and viruses it kills.
Q Are all Essanté Organics products / ingredients USDA certified organic?
A

No. The term "Certified Organic" is owned by the US Government, specifically the USDA. For a product to legally use the term “Certified Organic”, all of the ingredients must be 100% USDA Organic certified ingredients. There are other organic certifiers around the world. When creating a product with a few ingredients it's not difficult to keep production going with all USDA ingredients (like our Essential Oils). Yet, when creating products which require more ingredients, to consistently depend only on certified USDA organic ingredients, is a challenge. We use other reputable, 3rd party organic certifiers, including the QAI, NOP, Vermont Organic Farmers, Clemson University, etc. to maintain the quality of each ingredient and keep up with production. We also use certified Toxic Free ingredients and wild crafted ingredients. All ingredients are non-GMO plant or mineral derived, 100% free from toxic chemicals and are never tested on animals. Please enjoy the Products - Quality Commitment Page on your website to view what we use and what we stand for.

Q How much iron is in Essanté Organics Earth Greens Powder and Capsules?
A The individual leafy green ingredients in Earth Greens are extremely high in iron. We do not heat pasteurize our raw organic ingredneits, therefore all mineral content, including iron, in Earth Greens is minimally diminished. It is a whole food product, therefore exact measurement is not possible. Yet, as you Google search the iron level of each ingredient in Earth Greens.
Q Which essential oils are safe for my dog and how do I use /apply them?
A

Many essential oils are too strong for animals because animals are smaller that humans and their systems are more sensitive. Do not use essential oils on animals without consulting your aromatherapist. The following oils are safe for dogs according to our aromatherapists:

Peace and Calming for dogs:

Mandarin and Frankincense are great for calming dogs. (Both Geranium and Peace and Harmony oils are not recommended for use with dogs). Frankincense is great to calm down dogs who are visiting the vet or experiencing a change in enviornment. Place one drop on the outer part of their ear with a q-tip swab. Or add a few drops to coconut oil and massage pads of feet.

Flea Repellent Spray for dogs / Warts on dogs:

Lemon is helpful in addressing warts on dogs. Add a few drops of lemon oil in a carrier such as jojoba oil. Also add to NcPCA Mist and use as a natural flea repellent spray.

Swelling / Spasms / Antiseptic / Aches / Circulation / Internal Cooling for dogs:

Peppermint oil placed into a carrier oil is helpful. It must be diluted with a carrier oil or spray.

Please enjoy the product replay titled “Safe Essential Oils For Animals” - located at www.goGreenGetPaid.com/Training (bottom of the screen).

Q Is 7.365 pH Shake safe to consume while breastfeeding / breast feeding / nursing?
A Yes. 7.365 pH Shake it is one of the healthiest meals on earth. It is a wonderful nutrient dense meal for all humans, of all ages, especially breast feeding moms, who often need more nutrition. The nutrition within 7.365 pH Shake can be passed in breast milk to the infant. Plus it’s easy for mom, and in turn the nursing baby, to digest. We recommend all moms and expecting moms share Essanté Organics' labels and other label brands with their gynecologist and pediatrician.  Many doctors agree, we have the healthiest ingredients on earth, especially when compared to other products and packaged foods that contain toxic harmful fillers. 
Q Are essential oils preventative? How do I help my family prevent getting sick this winter / this flu season / during change of seasons?
A Essential oils are used as preventative measures and they are used to assist during times of need. To support and raise immunity, we recommend diffusing Coat of Armor in homes where all occupants are 10 years old or older. To discover which essential oils are safe for which ages: Enter “safe oils for newborns, infants, toddlers” and refer to the chart.
Q Does cooking an Essanté Organics raw, whole food, no-heat hydrated / pasteurized /processed nutritional product reduce its nutrient value or content, for example 7.365 pH Shake, Earth Greens Powder or Super Reds Powder? May I use these products inside pancakes, or hot oatmeal or other cooked foods and still enjoy all the nutrition? If a product is frozen (shipped during winter months) does freezing affect integrity or performance? 
A

Yes and no. Some nutrients are lost when we cook any food, including our whole food products. This is one reason why Essanté Organics does not use heat during formulation. Yet, simple strategies such as steaming food rather than boiling, or broiling rather than frying, can significantly reduce the loss of nutrients when cooking food. The good news is, virtually all minerals stay in tact when you cook food. Cooked foods, even 7.365 pH Shake, Earth Greens and Super Reds will retain the same amount of almost every mineral including: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc iodine, selenium, copper, manganese, and chromium. The only mineral that will decrease, if boiled, is potassium. Potassium is the the lone "rebel" mineral that will escape into boiling water. Knowing this, you are now aware cooked foods that contain our mineral rich pH balanced powders are indeed far more nutritious. The bad news however, is this: most vitamins are not strong enough to stand their ground or stick around once cooked. Here's the skinny:

HEAT destroys vitamins: A, E, C, Thiamin, B6, B12, Folate, and Pantothenic Acid.

BOILING destroys vitamins: C, B6, B12, Thiamin, Riboflavin, and Biotin (& mineral potassium).

OIL / BUTTER (FAT) destroys vitamins: A, D, and E.

If you want the full nutrient spectrum from our powders simply sprinkle them on top of any cooked or raw food just prior to serving. Sprinkling Super Reds Powder or 7.365 pH Shake after the oatmeal is boiled vs. during the boiling process will make a healthy difference. Adding Super Reds Powder on top of cookies or pancakes after they are baked or fried vs. during the cooking process is best: Reds make a great substitute for "sprinkles". Adding Earth Greens Powder on top of cooked veggies as an add-a-spice, like "salt" or "pepper" is best.

Just remember, if you serve 2 stacks of pancakes to our corporate staff; stack #1 where the batter was mixed with 7.365 pH Shake then cooked, vs. stack #2 made without it... We will race each other, and dive fork over knife into stack #1. We bet your family will too! Please bring the organic maple syrup.

FREEZING OR FROZEN UPON DELIVERY IN WINTER MONTHS Freezing and flash freezing are popular ways to sustain high nutrient value in fruits and vegetables. For this reason we recommend frozen organic fruits and vegetables over canned.  If one of our products is frozen (during shipping in the winter months) the quality, performance and integrity is not effected.  Our universal product testing includes boiling point and freezing point testing, upon which we ensure each product still performs optimally after each.  In the even any product is not performing to your satisfaction, please visit our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, located at the base of your website's JOIN page. We will gladly facilitate an exchange or refund with an RMA#, as outlined.  

Q How do I make my own organic perfume / cologne / body spray with a scent that lasts, using essential oils?
A

Perfume, like clothing and posture, is an extension of our selves. Cologne often boosts our confidence, enhances our mood, sheds our inhibitions and further defines us. Yet most on-the-shelf perfumes and colognes are comprised of neurotoxins and carcinogenic ingredients. So if you’re ready to stop giving your money to Ulta Cosmetics, Nordstroms, etc. If you’re ready to venture into your own, healthy Essanté Organics Store… here’s what to do:

  1. Choose your 3 favorite oils: choose scents that move you, and avoid scents that offend you. You either love rose or you don’t. To begin, decide if you like clean scents (citrus), woody scents (cedarwood, clove, etc.), or floral scents (geranium, ylang ylang, etc.)
  2. Be patient & mindful of choices & amounts: as you begin to combine oils the pairing and the amount of each can change your creation from amazing to awful in an instant. So remember be a patient, yet playful, mad scientist & enjoy the creative journey.
  3. Take “notes”: The intriguing scents that dance in your head, long after they are gone - like mandarin, orange, musk, or clove are called notes. Notes, when strung together, create a chord.
  4. Create your chord: choose a base note, a heart note, and a head note. The base note lasts the longest and is usually something that lingers, like vanilla or sandalwood or cedarwood. The heart note is the middle note and it is generally clean and crisp, or light and floral. The head note is exactly that: it’s intoxicating and heady and it hits you like cupid’s arrow. Many organic perfumers use mandarin green, cedarwood or ylang ylang as the head note because they are impactful and leave an impression.
  5. Chord example: if you choose cedarwood as your base note, geranium as your heart note and orange as your head note, the orange head note will be the most fleeting. Head notes have an explosive scent that evaporates quickly. Over time, you will notice the scent takes on a life of it’s own; the head note will melt into the heart and base notes, becoming a subtle, beautiful intriguing, lingering scent.
  6. Mix and match: how do you choose the right oils that go together? Ahhh, it’s up to the mad scientist, it’s up to you and you alone. Every scent is unique and will create it’s own followers. First, think about what on-the-shelf perfume or cologne you gravitate toward. Woody, citrus, floral, musky…? Start by imagining the scents you like most and pick a few.
  7. Recommendations for the not-so-mad scientists:
    • Woody: Cedarwood, Pine, Sandalwood, Clove bud
    • Floral: Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Geranium
    • Fresh: Mandarin Green, Grapefruit, Lemongrass
    • Fruity: Orange, Bergamot
    • Earthy: Vetiver, Musk
    • Herbal: Rosemary, Lavender, Chamomile
    • Spicy / Leathery: Black pepper, Clove Bud, Ginger, Patchouli
    • Sugary: Amber, Vanilla
    • Universal: Think & Sexy is used “as is” by both sexes (base, heart & head)
  8. Mix it up right in the kitchen sink: make sure you add base first, heart second and head last. Begin by using a nice a bottle of perfume oil like Jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is an excellent perfume oil, because it contains no alcohol. Jojoba carrier oil creates a subtle, “lean-in-a-little-closer” perfume scent, as opposed to a “bowl-everyone-over-when-you-enter-a-room” perfume scent. Jojoba is also known for it’s extensive health benefits and it does not contribute to headaches, as most petroleum based cologne carrier oils do (typically unbeknownst to the user). Perfume oils, like Essanté Organics USDA organic Jojoba, also delivers more bang for your buck, because it lasts between 5-12 hours, depending on the strength of ingredients (# of essential oil drops) you add. Compare this to “eau de toilette parfum” (perfumes with standard alcohol-based carriers) found on-the-shelf, which typically last only 2-4 hours.
  9. Essential oil ratio to carrier oil ratio: the artistry of perfumery requires a touch of mathematics.
    Concentration levels vary across perfume brands yet generally:
    • Light scent perfumes have 20% essential oil / 80% carrier oil.
    • Light scent: 20 drops of essential oils / 80 drops of carrier oil.

    For simplicity purposes let’s work with 100 drops of total liquid:

    10 drops base
    5 drops heart
    5 drops head
    80 drops carrier oil
    = 100 drops total

    Once you get the hang of this mathematic equation, you’re welcome to get more creative & increase the strength of your intimate fragrance, for example:
    12 drops base
    5 drops heart
    3 drops head
    80 drops carrier oil
    = 100 drops total

    Now, let the fun begin! Experiment! Take pics and post them on Facebook! Think smart or nerd glasses, a white doctor’s jacket, silly yellow rubber gloves, dry ice smoke or employ tips from the classic 80’s movie titled Weird Science. Seriously… just have FUN!
  10. Supply list, recipe & directions:

    1 kitchen sink & clean countertop workspace
    1 waterproof tablecloth
    1 pair of protective gloves
    3 essential oils (your favorite scents)
    1 carrier oil (Jojoba oil)
    1 empty cologne bottle (consider a small bottle with a dropper vial)
    4 glass droppers/pipettes (1 for each essential oil & carrier oil)
    1 roll of labeling tape (white or masking tape is fine)
    1 permanent marker (to title and date your organic creation)

    1. Label your empty cologne bottle, “My __ Fragrance” & date it
    2. Line countertop w/ waterproof tablecloth to avoid spill damage
    3. Ensure all materials are clean: bottles, droppers, gloves, etc.
    4. Put on your gloves
    5. Insert the following into your empty, labeled cologne bottle:
    • Base oil: using dropper/pipette, add 10 drops into your bottle
    • Heart oil: using dropper/pipette, add 5 drops into your bottle
    • Head oil: using dropper/ pipette add 5 drops into your bottle
    • Tighten cap, shake well, store in a dark place & mark calendar
    6. BE PATIENT: you must wait an entire week before smelling it
    7. AFTER 1 FULL WEEK: sniff… then… ONLY if you’re in love…
    8. Add 80 drops of Jojoba carrier oil, shake, wait 1 month & apply it!

  11. Did you say wait an entire month? Yes. Only after a full month has passed does the moment of truth come. So, after 1 week, open your mine-all-mine cologne bottle (with only the 3 essential oils inside of it) and inhale deeply. Ponder the scent at length. Are you smiling? Does the scent make you feel more energized, sexier, more empowered, desired, and infinitely intrigued? Does it leave you wanting more after you close the bottle and walk away? Good, then half of your alchemy mission is accomplished. Now, you’re almost an official perfumer. Yet official perfumers do not rush perfection. If you answered yes, if your combined 3 essential oils smell like the answer to life, heaven on earth, and a perfect dream that has come to life… you may then add 80 drops of Jojoba carrier oil and toast to your glorious alchemy success! But you cannot apply it… just mark your calendar for 30 days from now.
  12. You are now ready to become a true perfumer, and put it away for a full month to cure: So far, only your 3 chosen essential oils have had a chance to bond, like friends at a party, the full week has allowed them to really get to know each other, to play off of each other, to uplift each other, and to expertly edify each other. And now…. who swaggers into the party, fashionably late, the true star of the show, the headliner…. Jojoba carrier oil, and not only does she want in on the action, she amplifies the action beyond your wildest dreams! Allowing Jojoba, the “headliner”, the opportunity to enhance your perfume party (your cologne cocktail). Allow her to take your creation to a far higher level, way beyond what anyone’s imagination can fathom. Your dream-come-true creation, your organic perfection, your handcrafted symphony, your one-of-a-kind scent…. That one thing in the world that is especially for-you-and-you-alone, the wearable yet unseen marker, that literally has your signature on it, will be ready. So mark your calendar for 30 days out, pretend it’s the Perfumers Holiday Ball, and don’t arrive days early to the ball. Arrive on time, on the day of the ball, and dance the night away with your organic creation (after it has cured for at least 30 days).
  13. Don’t just wear it, own it: Now, the day of the ball has arrived. Your perfectly handcrafted, intoxicating, elixir will now draw people to you, organically. As you apply it to the length of your neck, the pulse points of your wrists, the hollows of your shoulders, and perhaps your hip points…. remember the healthy therapeutic qualities you’ll be enjoying too, privately. Before you go into public and begin luring people to your scent, consider creating a truly noteworthy name for your organic perfume & perhaps design a special label for it. Add: Born on (date), so you remember when you handcrafted your perfume or cologne. It’s a creative work of art, after all, and it’s something you should display and be proud of.
  14. Wait, my mad-scientist moment stinks! Wok, so you’re not the bell of the ball, but it’s not the end of the world. You’re actually entering into the world of creative artists. Artists do not always hit a home run or paint a “Picasso” their first time (or their second time, or even their third time). If after a week your 3 essential oils do not smell amazing, congratulate yourself anyway. You are now in the club where all creators and alchemists mingle. Perhaps you didn’t choose a good trifecta of essential oils. Or perhaps you added one too many drops of one oil versus another. Literally, one drop can make or break perfection. Whatever the reason, this is part of the journey. Like everything else in life, success comes to those who practice. Take notes during your experimentation process and inspect what you expect. If your desire is to truly become a serious perfume alchemist, for yourself at the very least, try and try again. It’s like riding a bike, practice makes perfect. If you fall off, dust yourself off, get back to it, and soon you’ll be flying down the path, with the wind in your hair, and with a unique, head-turning scent that lingers behind you.
  15. Congratulate yourself: you are now inducted into our secret society of perfumers. We trust you will design a cure your signature perfume to perfection and that you cause many raised eyebrows and insight meaningful compliments. And, possibly, your “selfie scent” will become a great conversation starter, which will open the door to a discussion of the many Essanté Organics products and business opportunity. Why not introduce your compliment-or to the next Essanté Organics call, happening at the top of the hour? (Every hour on the hour: 618-35-7333).
  16. Safety note: Some essential oils are phototoxic, meaning they should not be applied to skin that will be exposed to the sun. Some essential oils are not recommended during pregnancy or for people with high blood pressure or epilepsy, etc. Be sure to research each oil choice and ensure each is a healthy choice for you.

Q Which are the best products & essential oils for Candida / Yeast Infections?
A

Candida is a medical condition and diagnosis, and per the FDA, only doctors can use diagnoses and medical terms. So let’s talk about what to do if there is an overproduction or overgrowth of yeast in the body.

Testimonial:

"After years of suffering with uncontrollable yeast infections, and with a futile effort to starve it out with diet alone, I now have zero issues & total control, thanks to fungal reducing and flora boosting Essanté Organics USDA organic essential oils of Bergamot, Lavender, Lemongrass, Tea Tree & Eucalyptus plus Sanitizer. Thanks Essanté Organics for covering all the bases! And you’re a terrific company work with." – Anonymous

What is a Yeast Infection or Candida?

Candida Albicans is the scientific name for a normally peaceful, harmonious and beneficial yeast-like fungus that organically lives throughout our entire digestive tract (from our mouth all the way down to our large intestine and rectum). It aids in digestion and nutrient absorption. Millions of Candida Albicans live, without causing any issues, inside healthy people with properly functioning immune systems and ample gut bacteria. Candida Albicans are harmless parasites, which we need to balance our body's ecosystem. However, if our immune system becomes weak, or if our biochemistry becomes imbalanced, yeast proliferation can occur. When Candida becomes overabundant, it begins to break down the intestinal walls, where it then can enter the bloodstream and organs. When this occurs it can produce toxic byproducts. When Candida Albicans transfers from yeast to a fungus invasion of the body, this issue is called Candidiasis. An overgrowth of Candida can cause Athlete’s Foot, toenail fungus, chronic fatigue, yeast infections, fibromyalgia and other health problems.

What causes Candida?

  1. Taking antibiotics
  2. Consuming refined carbohydrates & sugar that feed yeast
  3. Consuming alcohol regularly
  4. Taking oral contraceptives
  5. Stressful lifestyles

How do I find out if I have Candida? 

 A Gastrointestinal stool sample is the best way to determine if you have a Candida overgrowth.

What / Which Essanté Organics products should I use to reduce yeast? 

We recommend the following products to help bring your immune system back to a healthy, strong state. 

Use the following pH balancing products because according to the National Institute of Health, proper pH balance is necessary for health.  In addition science shows that disease has a hard time growing in a pH balanced environment, yet thrives in an acidic environment. So help your body become perfectly pH balanced.  Perfect pH for humans is 7.365 on the 0-14 pH scale. The following products will help improve your alkalinity (pH balance) and the test strips will help you monitor your progress.  Read about pH balancing on the website or in the catalog and order:

  • Supreme pH Drops
  • Earth Greens Powder or Capsules
  • Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils
  • Calcium
  • pH Test Kit

Use Sanitizer spray topically.  See the Efficacy Sheet showing a 99.99999% kill rate of Candida is posted next to the product on the website. Order: 

  • Sanitizer

Use fungal reducing and flora boosting Essanté Organics USDA organic essential oils:

  • Bergamot
  • Lavender (can be applied neat/directly to the skin)
  • Lemongrass
  • Eucalyptus Globulus
  • Tea Tree (can be applied neat/directly to the skin)
  • Carriers (dilute the above oils into any of these carriers) Jojoba Oil, NaPCA + Mist, Citrus Body Butter

Directions on how to use these essential oils:

Target and reduce the largest colony of yeast:

The colon is the main organ of elimination of excessive Candida. Most of us can visualize a long, smooth, pink, healthy, colon. Yet the picture isn’t pretty when yeast is rampant: this time, visualize millions of white spots dotting the entire colon from top to end (each spot is a colony of rampant Candida organisms in an overgrowth state). How do these millions of colonies end up in your colon? Lymphocytes are the culprit; they are the taxicabs for Candida; picking them up, driving them throughout your bloodstream, into your organs, and ending the ride in your stool. That’s where the Candida congregate, leaning against the walls of your colon wall, and breaking through it and back into your bloodstream, where they go around for another toxic joyride at your expense. Quickly eliminating Lymphocytes from the colon can prevent this toxic re-circulation. Many recommend a daily enema series with essential oils to stop the issue at the largest breeding site, the colon. Consult your physician and certified Aromatherapist before using an enema series with essential oils.

Stay Committed:

Candida is difficult to treat once it becomes a widespread fungal infection. It requires a long-term commitment; dedication to maintaining and supporting optimal cellular and digestive health. Essanté Organics USDA organic essential oils are superior to use for Candida infections because of their: anti-fungal properties, ability to cleanse cells, use in restoring balance and function to receptor sites, tissue rebuilding qualities, blood cleansing abilities, and true value in increasing immunity and regenerating healthy flora in your gut.

What to do:

Remove the overgrowth of Candida, kill the fungus, eliminate the toxic byproducts, repair the colon and rebuild all affected tissue:

  1. Spray the interior of your mouth with Sanitizer:
    One pump three times per day, after meals. Do not exceed this dose. Sanitizer can be used topically on the skin as well.
  2. Spray all undergarments with Sanitizer:
    Before your underwear comes in contact with your private skin parts, spray the cloth generously with Sanitizer. Every time, even after you use the bathroom. Candida can live outside of the body, on your undergarments. Candida can be reintroduced into your body via your underwear if it is not sanitized each and every time, until your infection is cleared. It is also recommended you boil your undergarments (instead washing them in the laundry machine, where Candida can survive).
  3. The best Essanté Organics USDA organic essential oils to use for Candida are listed above.

Optional Enema:
Use these essential oils, sparingly, in a diluted enema blend that is approved by both your physician and certified Aromatherapist. This enema blend, once inside the colon, will provide instant and rapid absorption into the bloodstream, where the therapeutic oils will be carried throughout your entire body, thus eradicating the fungus. Ask your doctor and aromatherapist about the carrier to oil ratio to use and if this regime is best for you:

Once a day for the first 3-4 weeks then

Twice a week for the next 3 months

The above frequency is often recommended, to ensure the Candida infection does not return. Homemade ice cube suppositories may be recommended as well. Consult your certified Aromatherapist on how to make a proper, safe dilution. Use extreme caution with potent, therapeutic essential oils and dosages. Like pharmaceutical drugs, expert care must be used and over use can be dangerous.

Bathtub:

Add 5 drops of each of the above essential oils into a carrier oil to create a bath oil. Do not add oils directly to bath water as they will sit on top of the water and may cause skin irritation. Your skin is the largest organ in the body and therapeutic oils will permeate the skin and enter the bloodstream as you bathe in them. In addition, you’ll be enjoying the benefits of aromatherapy (inhalation); this also allows the therapeutic benefits of each oil to enter your respiratory system and your bloodstream. This method offers great benefit for less severe cases or for people who do not wish to use an enema.

Diffuser:

Enjoy therapeutic inhalation by using the “Attach-An-Oil” diffuser at EssanteOrgnics.com. The healing oils (listed above) will enter your respiratory system and then your bloodstream. This method offers great therapeutic benefit.

Consume alkaline diet choices:
Add Essanté Organics immunity & antioxidant boosting Super Reds Powder, as well as alkalizing & cleansing Earth Greens Powder, to your diet. Double or triple the recommended daily dose for 3 months. Also test your pH level using an Essanté Organics pH Test Kit. If you are not alkaline (7.365 pH is the perfect alkaline level for humans) begin an alkalizing regime including Omega 3,6,9 oils, Calcium, Supreme pH Drops and Earth Greens Powder. Please refer to EssanteOrganics.com to view the extensive health benefits of our pH balanced nutritional products. Consider illuminating or reducing the intake of yeast feeding foods and beverages including: refined carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol.

Therapeutic Benefits of essential oils:
Bergamot breaks down the toxic by-products and mucus formed by Candida. It assists in repairing damaged tissue. Bergamot is one of the strongest citrus essential oils, thus is aggressive in eliminating intestinal infections, in particular Candida. It is also excellent for intestinal parasites and herpes. Bergamot also uplifts the mood, relieves anxiety, relaxes away stress and elevates tension.

Lavender has strong anti-fungal properties and it aids in regenerating tissue. It is also excellent for reducing swelling, itching, burning and discomfort.

Lemongrass feeds healthy flora, regenerates tissue, and strengthens vascular walls. It cleanses, increases antioxidants, purifies the lymphatic system and reduces fluid retention.

Eucalyptus Globulus fights excessive yeast and other related intestinal issues, breaks down mucus produced by Candida, promotes rapid healing and purifies.

Tea Tree is a powerful fungal-infection fighting oil, specifically when it comes to yeast, cold sores and skin conditions. It is excellent for all types of illness.

Sanitizer contains ingredients, which are proven to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. It kills 99.99999% of Candida on contact. As you order Sanitizer, review the website information: all kill rates are listed on the Efficacy Sheet PDF located next to Sanitizer on the website at EssanteOrganics.com.

WARNING: Not all essential oils can be used on children under 10 years of age. See age chart for safe essential oils for children. Not all essential oils should be used if you have a medical condition (for example epilepsy, high blood pressure, etc.). Consult your physician and aromatherapist to ensure the above oils are recommended.

Q Which products / essential oils are best for someone who is anemic or who has anemia?
A

Anemia is a medical condition and diagnosis, and per the FDA individuals who are not doctors are not permitted to use these terms. So let’s talk about iron deficiency and getting more iron into the diet. Iron-deficiency is most common among women, because menstruation depletes the body’s iron supply, and in turn, a body low in iron produces fewer and smaller red blood cells. There is less hemoglobin available, which also means there is less oxygen flowing through the blood, and this will leave the body feeling exhausted. Try natural whole food remedies for iron deficiency. It's easy to get back on track when you discover the top foods, richest in iron, which are included in several of our products. Foods with a high iron content can build the blood and correct iron-deficiency, including: dark leafy green vegetables, pomegranate, almonds, apricots, beans, bee pollen, beets, blackberries, blackstrap molasses, burdock root, cherries, eggs, figs, prunes, raisins, seaweeds, and lean red meat.

The best products, that are richest in iron are:

Bee Natural: due to the high iron in the B complex vitamins naturally found in Bee Pollen.

Earth Greens Powder/Capsules: due to the high iron content in the 5.5 pounds of of raw, non-heat pasteurized, dark leafy green nutrition.

Super Reds Powder: due to the high iron content in pomegranate and blackberries.

7.365 pH Shake: due to the high iron content in Quinoa (& almond milk if you blend with it).

Essential Oils: Lemon, Grapefruit, Peppermint, Lavender, Ylang-Ylang, Cinnamon.

Q I enjoy great benefits from Bee Natural and I consume them regularly. Yet today I noticed a hard, non-disolved particle in my Bee Natural tablet. What is it?
A Pollen is a natural material with granules ranging from light yellow, to red-orange, to dark brownish-black. Many times chunks of raw propolis, or on rare occasions tiny pebbles or stones, find their way into the pollen as it is collected. Even though the pollen is cleaned and inspected, at times these natural particles will make it past the inspection process because they are not detectable by a metal detector. We produce in small batches, to ensure the highest and freshest quality possible. If you wish, please, find the control number for your Bee Natural product and submit it to us so we may review the batch: Submit your batch review request to ustomerSupport@EssanteWorldwide.com and if you'd like us facilitate a return or exchange please contact us for an RMA# by following the directions inside our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee button at the base of the JOIN page. 
Q How do I search my website for the best essential oil for health issues, concerns, conditions or diseases?
A

Once you are on your Essential Oils page press "Control F" or "Command F". F stands for FIND. The search bar will appear at the edge of your screen. Key in what you're looking for, for example "Scalp Imbalances" or "Dry Eyes" or "Itchy Skin" or "sleep issues" or "sinus health" or "respiratory health".

Q What is the vitamin and mineral content in Super Reds Powder and Earth Greens Powder / Capsules?
A The vitamin and mineral content in Super Reds Powder and Earth Greens Powder (and Capsules) is not measurable because they are whole food derived (thus they are not listed on the label). Deriving your nutrition from raw, non-heat dehydrated, ironically charged, organic, whole foods is superior because these are fully absorbable and they cofactor properly. Yet whole food nutrition is not measurable, because each "mangosteen", for example, has a different vitamin and mineral quantity from the next (therefore it cannot be listed on the label). Thus, Super Reds and Earth Greens differ from synthetic vitamins in this way. When a supplement is synthetically created in a laboratory from GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms) etc., the vitamins and minerals can be created in exactly the same way, time and again, and thus the nutrients can be measured and listed on the label in an identical fashion. The FDA has not evaluated these statements. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.
Q Which Essanté Organics products contain corn and is it non-GMO corn? I see only the Power Pops and Kids Pops contain non-GMO corn syrup, is this regular corn syrup or is it high fructose corn syrup and what is the difference?  
A Only 2 products contain non-GMO corn: 

1. Trace amounts of non-GMO corn syrup is used as a binding agent in Power-pops & kidsPops. We use 2 net grams of non-GMO corn syrup in each Pop, as a necessary binding agent. Read below to learn about our non-GMO corn syrup which is different from high fructose corn syrup. 

2. Non-GMO organic corn starch in used as a drying agent in USDA Certified Organic pHreshen Up Deodorant. 

Regarding Power Pops and Kids Pops: If there were a different binding agent for Power Pops and Kids Pops, other than the trace amount of non-GMO corn syrup we currently use, would be open to it. Yet our formulation team, nor any lollipop formulation team, has found a better binding agent. 

High fructose corn syrup vs. Essanté Organics non-GMO corn syrup: High fructose corn syrup is different from Essanté Organics non-GMO corn syrup. Both products are made from corn starch, but regular corn syrup, like ours, is 100 percent glucose. While high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) has had some of its glucose converted into fructose enzymatically. Of course, like all refined sweeteners, corn syrup should be consumed in moderation, thus we use only trace amounts (2 net grams) strictly for binding purposes.


Kids Pops Profile:

  • 100% Toxic Free
  • All ingredients non-GMO plant/Mineral derived
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B1, B2, B3 B5, B6, B12

  • 24 calories
  • 0 fat

  • 6 grams raw sugar

  • Q How does Essante Organics ship / deliver Power-Pops with Hoodia to other countries and do KidsPops have Hoodia too?
    A Our shipping department is well versed in which countries allow / disallow Hoodia. For example, Canada and most other countries outside the USA allow Hoodia, with a government cities permit - which is sent with each order. First the package is sent to the USDA inspection plant, the contents and government permit are authenticated, then the package is cleared and mailed a second time, overseas, where it arrives into customs for a second review. For double clearance, Power-Pop orders, outside the USA, require at least 2 additional weeks shipping time. Hoodia is not used inside KidsPops.
    Q Are Essanté Organics capsules made from vegetable gelatin?
    A No, not yet. We have 4 products that use gelatin capsules (Vitamin D, Calcium, Omega 3,6,9 and Earth Greens Capsules). We continue to research vegetable sources, yet these sources are extremely costly. 
    Q Which Essanté Organics products can help / are best for Eczema?
    A

    Eczema is a medical condition and due to FDA regulations corporate, nor Field Executives are legally permitted to use this term so let's talk about products that promote healthy non-itchy, non-dry, non-blemished skin without rashes. Many have used Sanitizer with rave reviews in eliminating serious skin disorders and issues. See the Sanitizer Efficacy Sheet next to the product on your website. Alkalizing (becoming less acidic and more pH balanced) is also wise. Use our pH nutrition products to alkalize. Moving to products without harsh, skin irritants and toxins can clear skin quickly and easily. Choose products with key ingredients, with clinical studies showing dramatic results (see below). Essanté Organics Products use 100% certified Toxic Free, wild crafted and organic ingredients (see labels) and each ingredient is chosen by design, many of which may assist with dry, itchy, rash-like issues and serious skin disorders:

    Stabilized Oxygen: in Sanitizer (most fungi and bacteria cannot live in stabilized oxygen)

    Top Essential Oils: Lavender, Frankincense, Geranium, Rosemary (check this page for "essential oils safe for children / what ages". For example Lavender is safe for all ages from newborn up and it can be applied neat or directly to the skin).

    Oat kernel extract: in our z3 Trio, Hollywood's Instant Toxic Free Facelift

    Coconut oil: in most of our personal care products

    Magnesium: in 7.365 pH Shakes and in our Body Bar soaps

    Prebiotics: in Bee Natural

    Beeswax: in Citrus Body Butter & Lip Balms

    Calendula: in pHreshen Up Deodorant and our White Willow Body Bar soap (coming soon)

    Jojoba Oil: it’s molecular structure is almost identical to our skin's natural oil.

    Q How many Earth Green's Capsules equal one (1) scoop of Earth Green's Powder?
    A Welcome to the nutritional equivalent of 5.5 pounds of raw, alkaline, whole food, organic vegetation! 3 capsules emptied into the Earth Green's Powder scoop will almost fill it perfectly. Capsule directions: Take 3 capsules with at least 24 oz of water, 3 times daily. Powder directions: Take 1 scoop, with at least 24 oz of water, 3 times daily. Earth Greens Powder is amazing and often tasteless when sprinkled in omelets, on salads or in dressings, on veggies, and in 7.365 pH Shakes & smoothies! Enjoy! The FDA has not evaluated these statements. Products not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.
    Q I'm not losing weight / I want to lose weight / how do I lose more weight?
    A

    We recommend a daily routine of eating smaller meals more often, for example:

    8:00am: 1 7.365 pH Shakes for breakfast (200 calories)

    10:00am: 1 snack (150 calories)

    12:00pm: 1 7.365 pH Shake for lunch (200 calories)

    2:00pm: 1 snack (150 calories)

    6:00pm: 1 sensible dinner (500 calories)

    The above is a 1200 calorie per day diet (see below)

    A general rule is:

    1200 calories / day = you'll weigh about 120 pounds

    1300 calories / day = you'll weigh about 130 pounds

    1400 calories / day = you'll weigh about 140 pounds

    1500 calories / day = you'll weigh about 150 pounds

    1600 calories / day = you'll weigh about 160 pounds....

    Each 7.365 pH Shake should contain: 1 scoop of 7.365 pH Shake, 1 scoop of reds, 1 scoop of greens, and water (or a low calorie almond or rice milk, etc.).

    Here are more great ways to facilitate weight loss: do not eat anything after dinner, add physical activity into your daily routine and use Power-Pops (as directed on the label) to curb your appetite, increase your metabolism, suppress cravings and feel fuller. Use Earth Greens to cleanse.

    Q How much non-GMO corn syrup and raw sugar are in each Power Pop / Power-Pop? 
    A We use 2 net grams of non-GMO corn syrup and 2 net grams of raw sugar in each Power-Pop®, as necessary binding agents. 

    Q What is Carrageenan, is it safe or not, and does Essanté Organics use Carrageenan?
    A

    No. Essanté Organics does not use Carrageenan in any products because it holds no nutritional value and human studies are inconclusive regarding its safety. 

    Carrageenan is a common processed food additive derived from Chondrus Crispus, a specific red algae seaweed also known as Irish Moss. It is found throughout the coasts of North America and Europe. Carrageenan has no nutritional value, yet it is used to thicken foods and improve their texture. It is most commonly found in ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese, soy, rice & almond milks. Animal studies have linked both un-degraded carrageenan (the type used in food with a heavier molecular weight) as well as degraded carrageenan (the type not used in food) to ulcerations and cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. All forms of carrageenan cause inflammation. Chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious diseases including IBS (Inflammatory Bowel Disease), heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and cancer. For these reasons Essanté Organics does not use carrageenan in any formulations. Continue reading below.

    Un-degraded (food grade) Carrageenan Study: Prominent researcher, Joanne K. Tobacman, M.D., an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, conducted studies linking un-degraded carrageenan (the type widely used in food) with stomach malignancies (cancerous stomach tumors) and other stomach problems. Continue reading below.

    Un-degraded (food grade) and degraded Carrageenan Studies: Dr. Tobacman, a publisher of multiple peer-reviewed studies, noted the biological effects of all forms of carrageenan, and classified all forms as harmful to human health. In April 2012, she addressed the National Organic Standards Board with her findings urging reconsideration of the use of carrageenan in organic foods. She offered documentation showing all forms of carrageenan cause inflammation. In addition, Dr. Tobacman when processed foods containing carrageenan are consumed, typically enough is ingested to cause inflammation in the human body. Dr. Tobacman also reported drug investigators used carrageenan to cause inflammation in tissue in order to test the anti-inflammatory properties of new drugs. She also reported when laboratory mice are exposed to low concentrations of carrageenan for 18 days, they develop "profound" glucose intolerance and impaired insulin action, both of which can lead to diabetes. She maintains both types of carrageenan are harmful. Continue reading below.

    Recommendation from Andrew Weil, M.D.: “All told, I recommend avoiding regular consumption of foods containing carrageenan. This is especially important advice for persons with inflammatory bowel disease”. Continue reading below.

    Harmful or Harmless from Chris Kresser, Acupuncturist, Physician of Integrative Medicine: “ Carrageenan is especially common in non-dairy milks such as almond milk and coconut milk, which means that some people who transition to a Paleo diet might actually be increasing their exposure if they use these products. Food-grade carrageenan has not been shown to cause cancer in animal models. That doesn’t necessarily mean carrageenan is in the clear when it comes to cancer, but contrary to popular belief, it is not a known carcinogen. Carrageenan has produced intestinal damage in some animal studies. Observed effects in rats include epithelial cell loss, increased intestinal permeability, and diarrhea. Still, a more recent rat study found no ulcerations or lesions in the colon after 90 days of carrageenan administration. These studies suggest that the effects of carrageenan are highly species-dependent, which makes it more difficult to extrapolate these results to humans. There are a few other important considerations when determining how applicable these results are to humans. Many of these experiments administered the carrageenan through the animals’ drinking water as opposed to their food, which tends to increase the severity of the resulting symptoms. Because carrageenan interacts with protein molecules, consuming it as part of a solid food is much less harmful than consuming it in water. Experimental evidence on the effects of carrageenan in humans is extremely limited, for obvious ethical reasons. However, a few in vitro experiments have been conducted on isolated human intestinal cells. One study found that in intestinal epithelial tissue, carrageenan exposure increased the expression of two pro-inflammatory transcription factors. This reaction appears to be protective of the intestinal tight junctions, because suppression of either of the inflammatory factors resulted in increased permeability of the isolated epithelial tissue. Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether they used food-grade carrageenan rather than poligeenan in this experiment. Two similar studies that did use food-grade carrageenan also found that isolated intestinal epithelial tissue responded to carrageenan by up regulating inflammation. Another study on human intestinal epithelium found that undegraded carrageenan reduced the activity of many sulfatase enzymes, with potential negative ramifications for the function and vitality of the cell. Finally, another study found that exposing human intestinal epithelial cells to undegraded carrageenan in concentrations lower than what would be found in a typical diet caused increased cell death, reduced cell proliferation, and cell cycle arrest. These studies provide some support for the generalization of the animal studies to humans, implicating carrageenan in the potential for intestinal inflammation. However, it’s important to remember that not only were these studies in vitro (aka not in the human body), they also didn’t administer the carrageenan with any food, so the effects observed may differ significantly from what actually occurs when humans ingest carrageenan in a real-world setting. Conclusion: carrageenan has been frequently portrayed as significantly more harmful than is supported by available evidence. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not a known carcinogen, and although some studies implicate carrageenan in ulceration and inflammation, some show no adverse effects. However, I do still think caution is warranted. If I had to rank additives, I’d say carrageenan is a bit more concerning than some others because of its association with gut issues. Because the evidence isn’t conclusive either way, I recommend avoiding carrageenan, especially if you have a history of digestive problems.”

    Q What is the best / recommended essential oil to use for extreme anxiety / tension? What is the best combination and how to use them? 
    A Happiness and/or Green Mandarin and/or Neroli Essential Oils are best for extreme anxiety, nervousness & tension in people 10 years old or older.  For those younger than age 10 use lavender and consult your certified Aromatherapist on how to best apply and use it.

    Note: Green Mandarin is scientifically proven to contain sedative qualities. 


    How to use:
    1. Use one or a combination of the above oils in the Ultrasonic Diffuser.
    2. Use any oil listed above in the Attach-An-Oil Diffuser.
    3. Add drops of one or all of the above in Jojoba Oil and massage into skin or add to bath water.
    4. Add drops of one or all of the above into 1 oz or 4 oz NaPCA Calming pH Balancing Mist. 

    Please see your catalog or your How To Use Essential Oil document for ratios:
    2 oz carrier oil or carrier mist = 20 drops total of essential oil
    1 oz carrier oil or carrier mist = 10 drops total of essential oil
    (or less if the above is too potent for your preference)
    Q  Are all of Essanté Organics Body & Spa (skin) products mild enough not to burn eyes or cause tears?
    A Essanté Organics Body & Spa products are the most mild products on earth. Not a single tear has been reported. Our CMO has very sensitive eyes and she has personally tested each product with eyes wide open. She's happy to report that even our Vitamin C Cleanser is mild enough to open your eyes while cleansing and rinsing, now that's impressive.   
    Q Does Essanté Organics plan on launching a bubble bath, or make up / makeup / cosmetics / mascara / eye shadow / blush / eyeliner, or pet food, or dish washer detergent / gel? 
    A Yes. We will launch all of these items as the field continues to increase in numbers.  For now you are ground floor and you should enjoy and sell the current 100 or so items currently featured. Eventually you will enjoy a very thick catalog filled with every product most people use on a daily basis (as well as a thick down line filled with 1000's of product users).  For now, use Baby Foam or Sweet & Shower Gel as a bubble bath, and add a pinch of Earth Greens Powder to your pup's food, and don't use anything in place of dish washer detergent / gel, unless you want a bubble-filled kitchen floor.  
    Q  Will you offer empty 1 oz Sanitizer containers as well as filled 1 oz Sanitizers?
    A No. Based on Executive and Customer demand we now only offer 1 oz filled Sanitizers (great for traveling and to pass as samples).  We will not offer empty bottles in the future.  We recommend ordering a few filled 1 oz Sanitizers and as you use them, refill them on your own for personal use. One reason for this policy is to ensure proper handling. Manually filled samples can become contaminated. 
    Q Are all Essanté Organics products including Earth Greens Powder and Capsules gluten free, wheat free, peanut free, soy free, dairy free and whey free? Are wheat grass / wheatgrass and barley grass gluten free / gluten-free? Are all products safe for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity?
    A Yes. All Essanté Organics nutrition products are free from wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, whey and peanuts. (See below for gluten / wheat / wheat grass / barley grass details).

    Essanté Organics uses pure, certified organic, seedless wheat grass and barley grass (just the grass, with absolutely no seeds). Pure, seedless wheat grass (wheatgrass) and barley grass do not contain gluten.  All products featuring a gluten free (gluten-free) label must follow strict U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules. Finished products must contain less than 20 parts per million.  All of our products contain less than 20 PPM. For example our 7.365 pH Shake Chocoholic Kiss contains 18 PPM (18 Parts Per Million). 

    The type of gluten that causes reactions in those with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity occurs in grains (seeds produced by the grass plants of wheat, barley and rye).  Pure wheat grass and barley grass, such as those used by Essanté Organics, do not contain gluten.  In addition it matters how the wheat grass and barley grass are harvested.  For example, farmers who allow grasses to produce seeds prior to harvesting will create a crop that contains gluten.  And farmers who harvest and/or process many grains through the same machinery can cross contaminate crops thus the crop(s) can contain gluten.  Essanté Organics purchases raw ingredients from organic farmers who do not produce crops with seeds and who harvest and process crops without cross contamination.    

     Q Are all of Essanté Organics therapeutic essential oils first (1st) distillation? Are any oils second (2nd) or third (3rd) distillation? 
     A Essanté Organics entire line of therapeutic essential oils are first (1st) distillation. We do not offer oils that are double or triple distilled because this is proven to reduce the therapeutic potency of the oil.
     Q  What is hoodia gordonii, where does it grow or come from, what is it used for and is it safe? What is the active ingredient in Power Pops (PowerPops)? 
    Description and origin:

    Hoodia (pronounced HOO-dee-ah) is the active ingredient in Essanté Organics multi-patented Power Pops, Eat Candy Lose Weight® lollipops. Hoodia gordonii is a  leafless, succulent plant, which contains medicinal properties.  It grows indigenously in the semi-deserts of South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Angola. Hoodia grows in thick, straight, prickly, arm-like clumps and its appearance resembles a cactus. Hoodia takes 5 long years to bloom. Once the light purple flowers appear, only then can the plant can be harvested using wild crafting methods. 

    Hoodia gordonii is known and marketed for its weight loss properties. Its extreme popularity rises from the San Bushmen of the Kalahari desert who began using hoodia thousands of years ago to keep from getting hungry during their long hunting excursions. The San Bushmen would cut the stem and suck or eat the bitter plant slowly, savoring its cucumber-like texture.

    There are over a dozen unique hoodia plants yet only hoodia gordonii contains the active weight loss ingredient, a steroidal glycoside, termed p57.

    History with a happy ending:

    In 1937, a Dutch anthropologist studied the San Bushmen and noted they were using hoodia gordonii to suppress appetite. 

    In 1963, scientists at South Africa’s National Laboratory also known as The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), began studying hoodia, stating lab animals lost weight after ingesting hoodia gordonii.

    In 1995, Phytopharm, a British company that has spent over $20 million researching and isolating the active ingredient in hoodia gordonii, named it p57 and patented it. 

    In 1998, Phytopharm sub-licensed the rights to develop p57 to Pfizer for $21 million dollars. Pfizer was initially interested in developing a hoodia drug, yet they returned the rights to hoodia back to Phytopharm.

    In 2004, the September issue of Brain Research found that the appetite center of the brain in rodents that received p57 injections resulted in altered levels of ATP, an energy molecule that may affect hunger. The animals given p57 also ate less than those given the placebo.

    In 2010, Phytopharm returned the rights of hoodia gordonii to South Africa’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSRI) where it is being further studied and developed in its native land. Phytopharm’s decision was based on a “corporate decision to exit the functional foods business”. Phytopharm felt it was a good business practice to return the rights to South Africa's National Laboratory (CSIR). The South African Sans people now receive 6% royalties from the sale of all products containing hoodia gordonii and they received 8% of the milestone payments CSIR received from Phytopharm. 

     

    Precautions:

    Some believe those with diabetes should be cautious about using hoodia. One of the theories on how hoodia works is this: hoodia tricks the brain into believing it has enough blood sugar. Without proper regulation, it is possible a diabetic’s blood sugar could drop dangerously low while taking hoodia. As with all active ingredients, Hoodia may affect liver function and it may interact with other medications.  It is important to consult your physician prior to beginning any weight loss program.


     Q  Is yellow pea protein the same as chickpea protein? Is the yellow pea the same as the chickpea aka the garbanzo? 
     A Yes. Many people do not want to be bothered with the long cooking time nor removing the outer skin of chickpeas / garbanzos, for this reason there are split peas. Both green and yellow chickpeas are sold in split pea form.  Both cook in under half the time as whole chickpeas and both have fewer calories, fat and sodium. For this reason 7.365 pH Shake uses split yellow pea protein. Yet split peas are not the same as lentils despite their similarity in appearance. Check labels carefully when buying split peas so you don’t end up with lentils instead.  7.365 pH Shake does not taste like chickpeas or peas at all. It's guaranteed to be equally delicious and nutritious. Enjoy!  
     Q  What is the fiber, protein, sugar, cholesterol in 7.265 pH Shake?
     A All products have website tabs titled Details and Info./Studies where all information is at your and your customer's fingertips, including the following:  

    7.365 pH Shake Vanilla Ice Cream Rave:

    Iron 8 mg



     Q  Why does chocolate 7.365 pH Shake have more calories, fat, carbohydrates, protein, iron & calcium that vanilla 7.365 pH Shake?
     A Because cocoa powder is an antioxidant that is rich in minerals including iron, zinc & calcium. It also contains protein. These factors make the chocolate shake a little higher in calories, carbs and fat, yet is is also higher in protein vs. the vanilla shake.  
     Q Is 7.365 is an excellent choice for a liquid diet?
     A Yes, 7.365 pH Shake is a complete protein meal replacement shake, rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, fiber and whole food nutrition. 7.365 pH Shake is known as "The Healthiest Meal Of The Day". 
     Q  Is 7.365 pH Shake an excellent choice for a low fiber diet?
     A It depends how much fiber is being consumed in one's daily diet.  7.365 pH Shake does contain fiber. The cocoa in the Chocolate shake contains more fiber than Vanilla. If a low fiber diet is recommended by a doctor it is important to share the fiber content of 7.365 pH Shake, along with all other foods they are consuming, with the doctor and gain their opinion prior to making any dietary changes whatsoever.  7.365 pH Shake Vanilla Ice Cream Rave contains 2.13 grams of fiber. 7.365 pH Shake Chocoholic kiss contains 4 grams of fiber. 
     Q  What are the appetite suppressants in 7.365 pH Shake?
     A
    7.365 pH Shake contains two appetite suppressant ingredients: Inulin and Stevia.  

    Inulin is a heart healthy, low carbohydrate, prebiotic, dietary plant-based fiber food, and known appetite suppressant. Inulin curbs the appetite because it's not digested in the stomach or small intestine but gives the feeling of fullness in both places.  Inulin helps develop a low pH level in the large intestine which helps reduce bad bacteria.  Inulin has 62.5% fewer calories than other carbohydrates and it helps improve the absorption of vitamins and minerals from other foods. It also supports a healthy circulatory system because it can help reduce total cholesterol and triglycerides. 

    Stevia is a zero calorie sweet leaf and known appetite suppressant that supports healthy blood sugar levels and a healthy digestion. Stevia is the most alkaline sweeter in the world and it boasts a zero on the glycemic index. Stevia helps improve energy and blood sugar levels while promoting a feeling of overall well-being. 
     Q What is phototoxicity (phototoxic / photo toxic / photo-toxic / photo toxicity) and which essential oils are known photo toxins?
     A
    Therapeutic essential oils are special, powerful and complex.  They should always be diffused or diluted and handled with as much care as medicines. Some essential oils have a photo sensitive effect on skin that is important to understand. 

    Phototoxicity (photo sensitivity or photosensitization), refers to substances, including natural agents in some essential oils, that absorb sunlight intensely and amplify the effect of the sun on your skin. Phototoxicity is sun sensitivity that occurs when something, like undiluted bergamot essential oil, is applied to the skin causing the skin to become more sensitive to the ultra violet (UV) rays of the sun. If a photo sensitive or photo toxic agent is placed on skin and then exposed to UV sunlight, the skin can burn more easily. Essential oils themselves do not cause skin sensitivity, but when the following list of oils is applied to directly to the skin, especially without dilution, and then the oiled skin is exposed to UV sun rays, sensitivity can occur. The result often looks like an exaggerated sunburn. 

    The easiest way to avoid this dilemma, is to dilute and apply the following essential oils on skin that is covered by clothing. For example applying diluted oils to the soles of the feet is ideal. Typically, with proper dilution (as shared below) phototoxicity is completely avoidable. 

    The main group of phototoxic essential oils come from the citrus family when they are extracted by direct expression instead of distillation. There are some oils, like lemon essential oil, which remain photo toxic even after distillation. There are other citrus oils that are not phototoxic, for example blood orange, mandarin and the oils inside Happiness Blend are not photo toxic.

    Bergaptene is the phytotoxic agent inside essential oils that causes sun sensitivity. Oils that contain a very small amount of bergaptene or 5 methoxypsolaren (5 MOP), approximately  0.000075% or less, will have a minimal phototoxic effect if applied to skin that is then exposed to UV sun rays.  For example sweet orange oil, which contains only 0.00005% bergaptene, will have a minimal photo toxic effect if any. Blood orange and mandarin green also have a very minimal phototoxic effect if any. The following oils can be very phototoxic when used undiluted, yet when used in a very low dilution the sun sensitizing effect is negated to a large degree. 

    Essential oils that may cause sun sensitivity when applied to skin that is then exposed to sunlight: 
    • Angelica
    • Bergamot 
    • Cumin
    • Dill
    • Grapefruit (cold pressed)
    • Lemon (cold pressed as well as distilled)
    • Lemon verbena
    • Lime (cold pressed as well as distilled)

    Robert Tisserand’s book Essential Oil Safety has very useful guidelines for using citrus oils and avoiding phototoxicity. The information below is directly from Robert’s book:

    Safe Use of Citrus Essential Oils Per Ounce of Carrier Oil:

    • Cold Pressed/Expressed Bergamot — 2 drops per oz
    • Cold Pressed/Expressed Lemon — 12 drops per oz
    • Cold Pressed/Expressed Lime — 4 drops per oz
    • Cold Pressed/Expressed Grapefruit — 24 drops per oz
    If any of the above oils are used during an aromatherapy massage, do not sun bathe or sun tan for at least 12 hours after the massage. Do not include any of the above oils in sun tanning lotions.  These oils do not promote tanning, instead they can cause skin damage and burning when undiluted and applied to skin that is exposed to sunlight.  

    Note: the essential oils used in all of Essanté Organics body care products are diluted by the other ingredients present and thus they are delivered at safe, non-phototoxic levels or they are bergaptene-free. You may use all body products in the sun without issue. 
     Q  Which essential oils are best for Bell's Palsy?
     A

    According to the FDA we cannot legally refer to any diagnosis, including Bell's Palsy (commonly referred to as Bells Palsy) in relation to our products because our products are not drugs. So let's talk about a droopy / drooping / half numb / paralyzed / nerve damaged face. This can occur overnight and while it can be frightening and embarrassing to wake up this way, it is not life threatening nor does it have anything to do with a stroke. It is uncomfortable to experience yet many people have lived through a swollen or damaged facial nerve that controls the facial muscles including: Pierce Brosnan, Sylvester Stallone, George Clooney and Katie Holme's (the reason behind her signature smirk). Doctors believe in most cases, the facial nerve becomes inflamed from a viral infection, possibly the herpes virus, which also causes cold sores.  As the virus spreads the body's response is inflammation, which in turn puts pressure on the facial nerves leading to a drooping eye or face, difficulty chewing, loss of taste, difficulty speaking, drooling, dry eyes, tearing eyes, pain around the ear, etc. Most physicians will prescribe a steroid and anti-viral medication for these symptoms, yet all prescriptions have adverse and sometimes extreme side effects. Essanté Organics safe, 3rd party tested, therapeutic essentials oils can be a holistic option if your physician and aromatherapist agree. Our therapeutic essential oils are a less expensive regime used to help increase immunity and help reduce swelling without adverse side effects. Use the following potent oils by diffusing them in a diffuser or diluting them in a carrier oil, like Jojoba oil, and applying them directly to the skin. 

    Recommended therapeutic essential oils for numbness / swelling / nerve health / immunity: 
    • Frankincense
    • Geranium
    • Peppermint
    • Helichrysum Infused In Coconut Oil (apply as is without dilution)
    • Coat of Armor (immunity blend)
    Remember some oils are extremely potent and therefore not recommended for children under 10, elderly, pregnant mothers or nursing mothers (see the list of safe oils for infants and dilution ratios inside the FAQ or catalog). The FDA has not evaluated these statements. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.  
     Q  Do your products contain fructose?
     A  We do not add fructose to any of our products.  The only fructose present would be from what occurs naturally in the superfruits we use. We sweeten some of our pH Nutrition & Fitness products with Stevia, the most alkaline sweetener in the world. Stevia is a sweet leaf with zero calories, a perfect zero on the glycemic index, a natural appetite suppressant. Stevia also helps reduce high blood sugar levels and bad bacteria in the gut. Stevia also helps improve teeth, gums, digestion & pH levels while promoting an overall feeling of well-being.  
     What is stevia and what form, format, or kind of stevia does Essanté Organics use? 
    A The stevia plant is an herb (plant) that comes from the sunflower family. It helps reduce appetite and improve blood sugar levels. Stevia comes in many forms, from fresh leaves, to dried leaves, to powder extracts, to liquids. Most formulators base their choice on the amount of sweetness desired, versatility, and the amount they wish to spend on the ingredient. Our raw, cold-pressed, wildcrafted or organic stevia extract powder is the finest, sweetest, healthiest, most nutrient dense, and delicious form of Stevia.  When you taste the right stevia, it tastes like a million bucks. High quality stevia, like ours, is known for having zero aftertaste. Whole leaf stevia is not FDA approved for use in foods, however stevia extract is FDA approved. 

    Essanté Organics starts with fresh, indigenously wildcrafted or certified organic, raw stevia leaves which are cold-pressed to gain pure raw stevia leaf extract. This fine powder is an extract of the sweet glycosides (natural sweetening agents) within the stevia leaf.  We use stevia leaf extract in all of our formulations including 7.365 pH Shakes, Super Reds Powder, and Sparkle Tooth Polish. 

    Raw stevia extract does not raise blood insulin levels, it scores a zero on the glycemic index, and it is far sweeter and healthier than honey or sugar. Stevia extract is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar by weight.  The cold-pressed extraction process makes stevia far sweeter than the leaf itself, and it allows our stevia to retain all of its nutritional content and healthy benefits, including its ability to help reduce appetite.  We also choose stevia because it is the most alkaline sweetener on earth and naturally has zero calories. 

    The fresh, raw, wildcrafted or organic stevia leaves we start with are an unrefined herb. A leaf picked from a stevia plant and chewed will deliver an extremely long lasting sweet taste. Yet for stevia to be used in practical applications, as a sweetener for tea, food, or products like ours, the leaves must be dried and extracted, and this amplifies the sweet taste. Drying and crushing is necessary in order for the leaves to release the constituents (sweet glycosides) that offer a more sweet flavor. A dried leaf is intensely sweeter than a fresh one, much like a raisin is to its former plump grape form. And it's worth mentioning again, that the FDA does not approve whole leaf stevia, they approve the form we use: stevia extract.

    In closing, it's important to know not all stevia extract powders are the same. The taste, sweetness, and cost depend on the growing method, the processing method, the degree of refinement, and the quality of the original stevia plant used. You may find that cheaper, syrupy, black or dark colored stevia liquids and cheaper powders have a metallic aftertaste. We use the highest quality stevia plants and cold-pressing method, this is why our products are known for having zero stevia aftertaste. 

    We do not use liquid stevia concentrates because they are made by boiling or steeping the leaves in water or a water and grain alcohol mix, and both methods can negate the nutritional value of the raw leaf. 

    What are the health benefits of stevia? We could write a book yet here's the "skinny": Stevia leaves contain potassium, zinc, magnesium and vitamin B3. Based on nutrition facts, stevia is fibrous and, its fiber can help reduce slow or hard bowel movements and it can promote healthy, proper digestion. Stevia contains 702 ppm (parts per million) of iron, which can stimulate the production of hemoglobin. Studies suggest large doses of stevioside, one of the sweet compounds in stevia, can help reduce unnaturally high blood pressure. Stevioside can also help improve hormone and insulin function, resulting in lower blood sugar levels. If you have type 2 diabetes, consult your physician because s/he may share stevia can be useful in helping to maintain normal insulin levels. Stevia has an outstanding safety profile and no adverse effects have been reported in human studies. This cannot be said for most synthetic options and ingredients on the market today. 

    The FDA has not evaluated this statement. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. Consult your physician before beginning any exercise, food or diet program.

     Q What are the best products or essential oils for earwax, ear aches, ear pressure, clogged ears?
    A Impacted earwax can cause difficulty hearing, infections, aches, pressure, dizziness, itching, ringing and discharge.  ENT's (Ear, Nose & Throat Doctors) believe earwax buildup may stem from a deficiency in essential fatty acids. Supplementing with a high quality omega-3 like Krill oil, found in Essanté Organics Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils may help reduce earwax buildup and improve elimination of earwax.

    In addition, many enjoy this homemade recipe for ear excellence: place Essanté Organics Lavender Essential Oil and Tea Tree Essential Oil into warmed organic olive oil. Using a dropper place the warm drops into the ear canal. This will instantly soften the ceruman allowing the wax to come out of the ear canal easily. Wipe away the wax with a soft cloth. Initially, adding warm olive oil may give the sensation of additional blockage or pressure, yet this is a normal sensation, because the wax expands as it softens inside the ear canal. Adding organic Lavender essential oil adds anti-microbial benefits, in other words this substance is known to help reduce bacteria (germs) and fungus (spore producing organisms). 
    Ingredients.

    What to do:
    Order Essanté Organics Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils.
    Take this dietary supplement as directed on the bottle. 

    Earwax Removal Recipe:
    4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
    4 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil 
    15 ml  or 1 Tablespoon Organic Olive Oil (warmed to body temperature)
    1/2 Organic Cotton Ball
    15 ml glass bottle with dropper 

    Overnight Instructions:
    Add the drops of essential oils into the bottle or on the spoon.
    Fill bottle or spoon with organic olive oil.
    Dip cotton ball into the liquid and saturate the cotton ball.
    Place bottle under your arm for 5 minutes to heat the liquid to body temperature. 
    Place the cotton ball into the blocked ear, leave overnight, each night, until earwax has loosened and makes it's way out of the ear canal.

    Instant Drip Instructions:
    Lie down on your side with the affected ear facing up toward the ceiling. 
    Ask a family member or friend to carefully place 2-3 two drops of the liquid into the ear (or use a mirror if you don't have a partner).
    Let the liquid sit for 7-10 minutes to loosen the earwax and help target any infection. 
    Now turn onto your opposite side, so your affected ear is now facing down, and allow it to drain onto a soft folded cloth. 
    Typically after 1 application the ear will function better, yet if the wax buildup is excessive 2-3 repeat applications may be needed.

    Do not use sharp tools, sticks or cotton swabs inside the ear canal. 
    This can push wax further into the canal and up against the ear drum.

     Q What are the best essential oils for cancer?
     A The best essential oils for cancer, per the National Cancer Institute are listed within their link: http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/aromatherapy-pdq

    The FDA has not evaluated this statement. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. Consult your physician and aromatherapist prior to using supplements or essential oils.  

     Q  What are the best products for inflammation or arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or joint pain? 
    Per the FDA only health care providers can use the terms arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, & pain so let's talk about how to effectively reduce swelling. Essanté Organics Helichrysum Infused In Coconut Oil is a ready-to-apply roll-on, and it's the top choice by our aromatherapists to reduce swelling. They recommend rolling it directly on the area of concern each night. They also recommend adding Frankincense, Lavender and our Relief Blend essential oils into our Jojoba Carrier Oil and using it as a rub to help reduce swelling. Bee Natural and Super Reds are sweet treats that help reduce swelling too.  Swelling is one common warning symptom of acidosis, therefore it is vital to alkalize your body. To reduce acidity in your body and return to a healthy alkaline state (7.365 is perfect pH or alkalinity for humans) drink plenty of water and add Supreme pH Drops, Earth Greens Powder or Capsules, Calcium and Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils to your diet. Be sure to read the online catalog section titled "Alkalinity For Life" to discover the difference between Acidity and Alkalinity, the roll the pH scale plays in the health of all living beings, and why our pH nutrition products help support alkalinity. 
     Q  Is it necessary to mix Earth Greens Powder into exactly 24 ounces of water as recommended? 
     A No. Earth Greens Powder mixed into 24 ounces of water is just an average recommendation to sip on throughout the day.
    You may enjoy Earth Greens with less or more water than is recommended on the label, depending on your preference. 
    You may also enjoy Earth Greens Powder sprinkled on vegetables, in salads, or blended into a 7.365 pH Shake.
    8 ounces = 1 cup. 
    A common recommendation is to drink 6 to 8 cups (or 48 to 64 ounces) of water daily.
    Another common recommendation is for men to drink 13 cups / 104 ounces & women to drink 9 cups / 72 ounces daily.  
    Some adults may need more or less, depending on how healthy they are, how much they exercise, and how hot &/or dry the climate is in which they live. 
    Cheers! 

     Q  What is the ingredient Tocopherol, where is it derived from, and does it contain gluten? 
     A Tocopherol is scientific name for Vitamin E. The vegetable plant source from which our Vitamin E Tocopherol is obtained is Sunflower Oil, thus it is 100% gluten and soy free. Other companies that use Tocopherol (Vitamin E) sourced from wheat must disclose the word wheat on their label, because disclosing wheat and gluten allergens is an FDA labeling requirement. Essanté Organics does not use Vitamin E Tocopherol that is sourced from wheat or soy. 
     Q  My son has grand mal or myoclonic tonic seizures, where should I look for holistic information on this, myoclonic seizures, and absence / petit mal seizures?
     A Here is a link from the University of Maryland on a 3 types of seizures. It has valuable chiropractic, nutritional, herbal and aromatherapy information including which herbs and essential oils to use and avoid:  http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/condition/seizure-disorders

     Q Are there any essential oils you absolutely should not mix or blend?
     A
    Blending or mixing essential oils can be a complex business. This is why Essanté Organics creates professionally made therapeutic blends, so you don't have to blend oils or mix oils on your own.  Our team of certified aromatherapists research and combine USDA organic and wildcrafted oils in proper ratios and in proper sequence, to create highly effective therapeutic blends (oils that enhance each other and work synergistically together). 

    Yet, if you desire to make your own essential oil blend it is possible.  You may safely blend any oils together, as you wish, without worrying you'll blow up the kitchen sink. Any and all oils can be blended together, yet the main risks are: 

    1. your blend may not be effective (oils can counteract each other).
    2. your blend may be too potent (like medications, oils are to be used with great care and caution).
    3. your blend may be photo toxic (not usable on the skin in sunlight). 

    To achieve an effective oil blend, on your own, consider employing at least some of the many criteria our team of credentialed Aromatherapists consider: 

    1. The chemistry of each oil: The chemistry of the oil refers to its volatility, viscosity, and properties. Ensure you begin by using Essanté Organics essential oils, because they are certified by credible 3rd party regulators to be 100% free from pesticides, GMO's, and all man made toxins.  Other oils, without 3rd party accreditation and certifications absolutely contain dangerous pesticides.  Plus other oils are often cut, meaning they contain cheap additives (in order to generate more profit). Other oils can also be improperly harvested and improperly distilled. It's important to beware of the terms "self regulation" or "in house testing" or "self certified" or "better than organic". In our expert opinion, essential oil companies that "certify their own oils" are as errant as parents who would let their own toddlers babysit themselves. 

    2. The desired objective and action: Blending oils correctly allows for a synergistic effect, meaning the action and objective of each individual oil is increased and enhanced, when scientifically mixed with additional oils.

    3. The sequence: The order in which the each oil is blended together can often change the properties of each oil.

    4. Oils with lighter, smaller molecules: produce thinner oils (less viscous) that are more volatile (aromatic). These oils absorb into the body more quickly. These oils are called top notes.

    5. Oils with heavier, larger molecules: produce thicker oils (more viscous) that are less volatile (aromatic). These absorb into the body more slowly. These are called based notes. 

    6. Combine lighter molecules with heavier molecules: this creates a synergistic effect, allowing the lighter molecules (top notes) to last for an extended period of time. Heavier oils or base notes are also referred to as fixatives or fixing oils.  These oils extend the life of lighter, more volatile, top note oils. Popular fixing oils are Sandalwood & Ylang Ylang.  Ylang Ylang is the base note / fixative used in the popular perfume Chanel No. 5. Sadly, most popular commercial perfumes and colognes contain toxic synthetic chemicals known to disrupt hormone balance and cause other serious health concerns. 

    7. Positive and negative ionic charge: Just like soil, plants and water, our bodies also hold an electrical charge.  We instinctively know we feel better when digging in the soil or sand, or padding barefoot on the beach, or inhaling the sent of pine trees as we walk through the forest, yet we rarely ponder why we feel better. The earth is covered with healthy negative ions.  Negative ions are in abundance in forests, in plants, at the beach, and near moving water like rivers and waterfalls. Recent studies show energies, or electrical charges, from the earth have a measurable effect on improved body function and health. Research shows negative ions have a net positive effect. Negative ions are invisible, odorless, tasteless molecules found on earth and they are also abundant in many essential oils, because essential oils are the concentrated immune system of the plant.   

    Sadly, all of the electrical devices we come in contact with daily also hold an electrical charge. Most of us are being pelted by positive ions all day long, as we sit in the glow of our computer screen or scroll down through our "endless" smart phone screen. Healthy negative ions magnetize and stick to our screen, while their counterparts, positive ions, magnetize and stick to our body. Positive ions are also prevalent in pollution, static, heating systems, smoke particles, lightening, dry wind, dust, and pet dander. Too many positive ions will make us feel anxious, irritable, tired, listless and depressed. When you have that sudden and overwhelming yet undefinable I-don't-feel-right feeling, you can bet you've had an overdose of positive ions and your body's in a state of imbalance.  When positive ions attack our system, they can create free radicals, which upset our body's state of homeostasis or well-being. Just like reconnecting with outdoor areas that are rich in healthy negative ions, essential oils can help neutralize feelings of listlessness or tiredness too; essential oils including rosemary, peppermint, basil, geranium, tea tree, euclayptus or ginger. Some essential oils that can help reduce feelings of deep sadness or anxiousness are chamomile, lavender, geranium, marjoram, bergamot, frankincense, neroli, and sandalwood. 

    Conversely, research has discovered a deprivation of healthy negative ions on lab subjects resulted in an accelerated rate of death due possibly to disturbances in neurohormonal regulation and pituitary insufficiency. Research shows negative ions may increase oxygen flow to the brain while helping stimulate the endocrine system and balance hormonal output. The endocrine system maintains a complex yet innate balancing act, yet without the assistance of negative ions, it can malfunction, and lead to chronic immune issues. Using a diffuser with earth's essential oils, in a daily routine, can help reduce the effects of being bombarded with positive ions, and in turn reestablish better immune function and strengthen all of the body's systems and overall organ function. Healthy negative ionic atmospheres have also been proven to reduce poor lung and histamine function, as well as reduce bacteria growth and minimize airborne contaminants including pollen, dust, smoke, animal dander, chemicals and viruses. "There is another dimension to the healing powers of essentials oils. This has to do with their electrical properties. All essential oils carry electrical charges, usually electrons or negative ions, which are healing and healthful." Dr. David Stewart - Healing Oils of the Bible. 

    The key to human health is balance. A balanced approach using essential oils with positive ions (oils containing terpenes and phenols) and using cooling essential oils with negative ions (oils containing sesquiterpenes and esters), can reduce swelling and stress and help you feel invigorated, refreshed, energized, and mentally sharp. 
      
    8. Use a carrier oil to dilute your blend if applying it to skin or bathwater: Only Lavender and Tea Tree oils can be applied neat (undiluted) directly to the skin or added directly to bathwater. Adding undiluted oils to bathwater will cause the oils to sit on the surface of the water.  If you are diffusing oils there is no need to dilute them. However, it is imperative you dilute all other oils, prior to applying them to the skin or adding them to bathwater, because essential oils are extremely potent and the liver can be taxed if they are not properly diluted. We recommend USDA organic Jojoba Oil as a carrier oil. Take your carrier oil and "layer" or "sandwich" your essential oil choice(s) "in between" the carrier oil.  For example: if you are using 4 ounces of carrier oil, fill a glass container with 2 ounces of carrier oil, then add your essential oil choice(s), and finally top off your creation by pouring the remaining 2 ounces of your carrier oil on top. Secure the cap on your glass container and turn your glass container over several times to mix. General rules for diluting oils are: 

    Children 6 months old to 6 years old:
    .25% Dilution
    1 drop per 4 teaspoons of carrier oil.
    Essanté Organics recommends avoiding essential oils altogether for children under 2.
    Please only use if you absolutely must, and then only if a licensed aromatherapist and pediatrician have been consulted.

    Children over 6 years old, pregnant women, elderly adults, those with sensitive skin, compromised immune systems, serious health issues:
    1% dilution

    1 drop per teaspoon of carrier oil.
    5-6 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil.

    Most adults:
    2% dilution

    2 drops of essential oil(s) per teaspoon of carrier oil.
    Or if you wish to create a more potent blend use 12-60 drops of essential oil(s) per 1 ounce of carrier oil or 45-55 drops per 4 ounces of carrier oil.

    9. Check for photo sensitivity / photo toxicity / irritation by using a skin patch test:  Some oils, including most citrus oils, are naturally photo toxic or photosensitive, meaning they are sensitive to sunlight. When these oils are applied to the skin they can cause a rash or burn when exposed to sunlight. After applying the following oils, it is recommend you stay out of the sun (UV rays) for 72 hours. However, if you apply these oils to your feet or under clothing, you will be fine. When creating your own blend with oils that are photosensitive, consider doing a small skin patch test on your skin, somewhere unnoticeable, and see how your blend reacts in the sunlight. Oils that are photosensitive or phytotoxic are: Lemon, Lime, Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Cumin,  Angelica, Ginger, White Angelica.

    10. Use glass or wood tools: Use a hair net, protective gloves for your hands, and non-metallic tools for blending. Glass is best. Use glass droppers or glass stir stick rods. If you need a minute amount of oil, you may use a toothpick, yet throw it away after you've used it once, and don't use it again.  Avoid using plastic tools for blending. Store your blend properly, in a dark glass container out of direct sunlight, and leave air space in the bottle so your oil creation can breathe.  

    Happy blending! 

     Q Are there any dairy products in any of Essanté Organics nutrition products, including Butter Pecan Power Pops?
     A There are no dairy ingredients in Essanté Organics Butter Pecan Power Pops or any of our nutrition products. All Essanté Organics nutrition products are 100% dairy free, meaning they are also lactose free and whey free. Enjoy!
     Q Is alkalizing, consuming 7.365 pH Shakes, PowerPops and all other Essanté Organics nutrition products safe for pregnant and nursing mothers?  
    We recommend each pregnant and nursing mother bring all labels (ours and other brands) to their gynecologist and pediatrician, for expert review. Many expecting moms and new moms have done this with great success. Many doctors agree, Essanté Organics pH nutrition and Body & Spa product labels are not only safe, they contain healthy & beneficial ingredients. (especially when compared to other body products, other shakes, and other packaged & fast foods on the market, which typically contain toxic synthetic fillers).

    There are a few Essential Oils to avoid when pregnant or nursing. For a list please see the FAQ.

    If I were pregnant (by Angie Levine):

    1. Essanté Organics 7.365 pH Shake, Super Reds Powder, Earth Greens Powder & Omega 3,6,9 Vital Oils would be in my daily regime, because nutrition fortifies the pregnant mom and it passes to the baby. 

    2. Essanté Organics Body & Spa products would be in my daily regime too, because everything applied to the skin transfers to the bloodstream and passes to the baby.  

    3. Essanté Organics Home Care products would be in my daily regime too, because toxic cleaning supply fumes transfer to the lungs, bloodstream and pass to the baby.

    4. I would buy only organic foods at the grocery store.

    Of course, this is how I live now, without being pregnant. This is how Dr. J. J. Levine and our son, Chandler, both live too. Our son was born in 1995 by home birth, because I did not want synthetic drugs injected into my body or his. It was one of the most healthy, serene, beautiful, and touching experiences of my life because Chandler and I were both 100% aware of, and in tune with, each other, without the dangerous side effects of drugs. At every age, Chandler has been, and continues to be, the healthiest person among his friends, and we attribute this to healthy, organic product choices and nervous system maintenance through chiropractic care. 

    What you put in and on your body is a direct result of how your body will support you, at every stage of life. For this reason, it's best to avoid as many toxic ingredients as possible, when pregnant and at all times. 

     Q Will Essanté Organics create larger bulk size containers / products to refill smaller products like Hand Candy & Laundry Liquid, etc.?
     A We produce and package all products in 30 day supply only, because our business model is based on recurring monthly Easy-Orders. In the very distant future, we may decide to create re-fill size products, yet this is not something you will see for many years. 
     Q  I have a friend with herpes. What is the best essential oil for cold sores?
    Per the FDA, we cannot say the word Herpes, because it is a medical diagnosis. So let's talk about cold scores.
    Essanté Organics USDA Organic Peppermint, Lemon and Tea Tree Essential Oils may help reduce cold sores. 
    Here are two ways to use Essential Oils:
    Add 5 drops of each into a 1 oz NaPCA Mist, spray and inhale deeply. 
    Add 10 drops of each to 1 oz of Essanté Organics USDA Organic Jojoba Carrier Oil, add to warm running bath water, and soak in the tub.   
    The FDA has not evaluated these statements. Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease. 
     Q Is the iron content in the chocolate or vanilla 7.365 pH Shake an issue?
     A No. The 8mg of iron in Chocoholic Kiss 7.365 pH Shake, nor the 6.20mg of iron in the Vanilla Ice Cream Rave 7.365 pH shake is an issue.  Per WebMD: Children need more iron than adults. Menstruating women need 18mg of iron a day. Non-menstruating women and men need the same amount, 8mg of iron a day minimum, and neither should exceed 45mg of iron a day. Details are inside the WebMD link: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-and-supplements/lifestyle-guide-11/iron-supplements
     Q Please explain Suffused In or Infused In.  Infusion in aromatherapy terms can often refer to double boiling, diluting, or adding scent. How is Essanté Organics infusion or suffusion process different?  How does Essanté Organics infuse or suffuse Helichrysum and Neroli into Coconut Oil? 

    The definition of infused or suffused is to fill, imbue, penetrate, pervade, permeate, suffuse and/or spread through every part of. Thus our certified USDA Organic Helichrysum Oil is infused or suffused into our wildcrafted coconut carrier oil. 

    We start and end with only 2 ingredients:

    First, our Corsica distiller harvests the entire Helichrysum plant at critical bloom, at 5am, prior to steam distilling. Second, our 100% organic Helichrysum oil is then combined with our 100% wildcrafted, fractionated coconut oil, and poured.

    All roll-ons (infusions) include a fractionated carrier oil & the process is special:

    Our distiller's fractionated process ensures our carrier oil does not separate, or coagulate in temperatures below 70 degrees. This process is not certified organic yet, however we are working on it. Our process begins with solid, certified USDA organic coconuts. Compounds are removed from the coconut, to move it into a constant liquid form. Nothing is added during this process, thus zero dilution and zero devaluation occurs. The organic coconut is warmed (not heated) in a drum warmer. Then, our Certified USDA Organic Helichrysum oil is added, with mixers and blenders, and finally it is poured.

    The final result is the world's finest, purest, most potent, ready-to-apply: 

    1. Certified USDA Organic Helichrysum Infused in Wildcrafted Coconut Oil.

    2. Certified USDA Organic Neroli Infused in Wildcrafted Coconut Oil.

     Q  Which USDA organic essential oil and additional Essanté Organics products are best to use for Shingles? 

    According to the FDA only doctors can state diseases and diagnoses including shingles. So let’s talk about 5 natural remedies that help reduce swelling, lesions and discomfort associated with nerve and skin issues.

    Gary S. Goldman  Ph.D., a seasoned Research Analyst with the LA, California Varicella (Shingles) Active Surveillance Project, with funding from the CDC, reported higher rates of Shingles in Americans since the government’s 1995 recommendation that all children receive the chickenpox vaccine. The vaccine is is not mandatory, or proven, and many parents exercise their freedom of health choice by printing the online personal vaccine waiver and furnishing it to their child’s public or private school.  Many researchers believe, since the mass use of the chickenpox vaccine began, there are signs of a Shingles epidemic underway. In addition, the lack of naturally occurring chickenpox (due to the vaccine) is resulting in Shingles occurring in younger people.   

    Shingles (herpes zoster or varicella-zoster virus) is a disease caused by the same virus responsible for chickenpox. 20% of adults who had childhood chickenpox will develop shingles.  The 80% who had childhood chickenpox yet avoid adult onset shingles, likely have their strong immune systems and less stressful lifestyles to thank.  Diseases including HIV and diabetes, and invasive medical protocols including chemotherapy, radiation and immunosuppressive drugs can also increase the risk of developing shingles.

     

    Shingles lives in the spinal column and is an infection of the nerves, yet it often travels to the skin of the face and/or torso, where it can cause inflammation and extreme pain.  It can remain dormant for decades. Shingles is a member of the same family of viruses that cause genital herpes and cold sores.  

     

    The vast majority of both shingles and chickenpox cases are uneventful and resolve themselves in about 4-6 weeks on their own, without any major complications.  Yet occurrences of shingles around the eyes or forehead can cause blindness and therefore it’s imperative to consult an eye doctor immediately if an outbreak occurs near the eyes. 

    There are many, natural, non-invasive options to consider while the shingles virus runs it’s course. 

     

    5 natural remedies for poor immunity, swelling, pustules, discomfort, rashes, burning, blisters and nerve issues: 

    Purple Mountain Lavender & Oatmeal Bar: a warm bath once a day with this exceptionally soothing  body bar can help reduce inflammation and discomfort and help improve broken skin. 

     

    Essential oils: Topical diluted applications of anti-viral USDA Organic lemon, sandalwood, peppermint, bergamot, grapefruit, tea tree, and lavender essential oils in USDA Organic Jojoba Carrier Oil can help significantly reduce swelling, pustules, and discomfort and help improve immunity and recovery time.  See the catalog or FAQ for dilution recommendations. 

     

    Supplementation: Bee Natural are sweet tasting dissolvable tablets filled with immune boosting B and C Vitamins. And one small capsule of Essanté Organics Vitamin D daily can significantly improve immunity. 

    Reduce stress: this is one of the most important factors to overall health.  Stress reduces your immune system’s ability to fight off viruses such as Shingles.  Many outbreaks of Shingles occur after situations involving extreme stress.

     

    Chiropractic adjustments: The Shingles virus resides in the spinal column, where it can remain dormant for decades. Misalignments of the spinal column are a strong factor in Shingles outbreaks and the duration of the virus. Chiropractic adjustments may dramatically speed up recovery time. Ask the President of Essanté Organics, Dr. Jonathan James Levine, about his extensive experience as a highly successful doctor of Chiropractic and leading expert in the field of organic products, and he will share how to best improve the health of the body through these means.

     Q Are all preservatives bad? Which healthy preservatives does Essanté Organics use? Do Natural preservatives work? Are preservatives necessary in organic products? Why do other companies not use preservatives?
     A

    The word preservative has received a bad reputation, mainly because of the industrial chemical companies who create cheap, toxic preservatives to extend a product’s shelf life. Essante Organics receives many inquiries from discerning customers who want to know if preservatives are necessary, and if they are, do we use safe preservatives?   

     

    Q WHICH HEALTHY PRESERVATIVES DOES ESSANTÉ ORGANICS USE?
    A

    Being a company committed to certified ToxicFree®, wildcrafted, and organic products, you might be surprised to know Essanté Organics supports the use of healthy, safe, effective and proven preservatives, that come straight from Mother Nature, including the following list.

     

    The following is a list of 100% all natural preservatives:

    • Grapeseed extract - antibiotic, anti-septic, preservative 
    • Neem oil - antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitic
    • Rosemary oil - anti-oxidant, prevents decomposition, preserves product
    • Grapefruit oil - anti-microbial, disinfectant, preserves product
    • Orange oil - anti-bacterial
    • Lemon oil
    • Tea Tree Oil
    • Bergamot Oil
    • Castor Oil
    • Hickory Bark
    • Honey - anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, natural humectant 
    • Vinegar - extends product life
    • Sugar 
    • Stabilized Oxygen - kills molds, bacteria, yeasts, viruses, fungi
    • Sodium chloride (salt) 
    • Citric acid (derived from citrus fruits)
    • Alpha tocopherol (vitamin E) -  anti-oxidant, prevents degradation, extends product life 
    • Vitamin C - slows bacterial growth
    • Potassium sorbate (Potassium salt of sorbic acid) - supports prevention of mold and yeast
    • Organic Grain Alcohol (Denatured with Organic Orange) 

     

    Q

    DO NATURAL PRESERVATIVES WORK? 

    A

    Yes.  There are many healthy, antioxidant rich substances which deliver serious antibacterial, antimicrobial,and antifungal benefits.  The substances listed above  are proven to help slow or reduce many forms of bacteria, molds, fungi, and yeasts, when used in ideal concentrations and conditions. 

     

    Q

    SHELF LIFE

    A

    All Essanté Organics products have a 2 year shelf life. 

     

    Q

    DO ALL PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS REQUIRE A PRESERVATIVE?

    A

    No. Here’s a fascinating fact: only personal care products that contain water need a preservative. Powdered, dry, and 100% oil products do not require a preservative. 

     

    Some ingredients, including honey, when used without the addition of water, are fully self-preserving. 

     

    Q

    WHICH PRESERVATIVES ARE USED IN WHICH ESSANTÉ ORGANICS PRODUCTS? 

    A

    Essanté Organics handmade USDA certified organic soap Body Bars (organic soaps) use rosemary as the preservative.  Essanté Organics organic disinfectant Sanitizer, organic Baby Foam (shampoo and body wash) and Sparkle Organic Toothpaste Polish all use stabilized oxygen as the preservative. View stabilized oxygen's efficacy sheet online next to each product to see the 99.9% - 100% kill rate of all molds, fungi, bacteria and viruses listed. Essanté Organics USDA certified organic hairspray, Selfie Style, uses organic grain alcohol denatured with organic orange as the preservative. Many of our products use essential oils as preservatives. 

     

    Q

    WHY DO PRODUCTS CONTAINING WATER NEED A PRESERVATIVE?  

    A

    Water is one of the most important, life creating and sustaining substances on earth. Thus, a product made with water that does not contain a preservative, would naturally breed mold, bacteria, fungi and yeasts. These living creatures flourish in a water-based environment, thus a preservative is needed, otherwise the unfit product could put the user at risk. 

     

    Even if the word water is not on the ingredient list, there are other ingredients that have water present, including organic aloe vera leaf juice, distillates and hydrosols (water infused with organic essential oils, herbs or botanicals).

       

    The process of water contamination can happen quickly, in under two weeks, so Essanté Organics takes healthy ingredients, from Mother Nature, to preserve all products containing water, allow vera leaf juice, and infusions.  An unpreserved product can fool even the best formulator. A product that has gone bad may look, smell and feel great, yet it can be teaming with dangerous microorganisms. Thus Essanté Organics micro-tests every product batch to ensure each is 100% free from bacteria, yeasts, fungi, molds and contaminants. 

     

    Q

    WHY DO OTHER BRANDS NOT USE PRESERVATIVES? 

    A

    Our world renowned formulators conclude that:

    1. Companies producing “preservative free” product(s) may not have access to expensive micro-testing equipment and thus are unable to test and certify their products as being free from yeasts, molds, bacteria, fungi and contaminants.

     

    2. Companies producing “preservative free” product(s) may not be aware of labeling laws, that require all ingredients to be listed using the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) name. For example: Sucrose (Sugar). Or they may hide the preservative within an ingredient. For example: they may use an Aloe Vera Juice that is already preserved (contains a preservative), yet only disclose the Aloe Vera Juice, and not the preservative. Or they may break the law, and not not fully disclose their complete ingredient list, omitting the preservative(s).  If a product passes micro testing, showing it has the amazing, broad-spectrum preservation abilities, yet their is not preservative ingredient lists, 

     

    3.  Companies producing products with “healthy” preservatives could be using extracts in one or two ways: Healthy ingredients, used at the right percentage, can create an effective preservative option. Yet be aware some companies may use a high content of alcohol, which is very drying to the skin and hair and it can cause improper pH balance of the hair and skin.  In addition some companies use “extracts” made in a propylene glycol or butyl glycol base and preserved with urea, parabens, or triclosan, yet they do not disclose the processing of the extract, making it appear to be preservative free. 

     

    4. Companies producing “preservative free” product(s) may be using ingredients that do not require preservatives. As we explained above, a product that does not contain water does not require preservatives.

    Essanté Organics does NOT use preservatives where it is not necessary.  Essanté Organics only uses Mohter Nature’s preservatives when water, or an ingredient infused with water is present in the formula.  Essanté Organics natural preservatives are certified and do not contain any additional preservatives. 

     

    Q

    ADDITIONAL ESSENTIAL OILS WITH ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES:

    A Essential oils are the most natural antimicrobials available on earth.  According to Preservatives for Cosmetics, by David C. Steinberg, essential oils that have demonstrated antimicrobial activity include caraway, cinnamon, clove, cumin, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, rose, rosemary, sage, sandalwood and thyme. In conclusion, Mr. Steinberg states many natural product manufacturers have successfully used oils, such as tea tree or combinations of various essential oils, to maintain product integrity. 
     Q I noticed DoTerra has their own essential oil certification, CPTG. Is CPTG really a certification and how is Essanté Organics USDA Organic certification different from CPTG?
    CPTG is a registered trademark of DoTerra.  CPTG is DoTerra's personal in-house certification method. 
    DoTerra self certifies (self regulates) their own oils by their own means, without outside authentication or verification.

    Any company can create their own certification yet self-certifications, and the means by which the company certifies their own product(s), is not regulated.  Essanté Organics: 

    • Respects DoTerra because they share Essanté Organics' passion for essential oils and the networking industry.
    • Respects third party certifications earned by proven regulatory agencies that test and either pass or reject ingredients.
    • Does not agree with the practice of self-certification for its ingredients or products. 
    In-house, self certification, in some instances, can often be similar to printing "all natural" on a product that may not be all natural.  Like self-certifying, using the terms "all natural" or "pesticide free" can sometimes be a loop hole used in a currently flawed system. Many companies can and do place cheap harmful ingredients into their personal care products and label them "all natural" without legal consequence.  Many companies can and do produce products with pesticides and label them "self-certified" or "pesticide free" without legal consequence. While these practices are legal, they can sometimes create confusion: there is no way to tell truthful from untruthful self-certifications because they are not regulated.  

    Essanté Organics believes self certification is not an objective or viable method of keeping one's product(s) or ingredients legally in check.
    It is impossible to prove the authenticity of a "self-certified" or "all natural" product without securing credentialed third party testing of that product. 

    Certified organic ingredients are far more expensive than non-organic ingredients and many companies choose the latter to increase their profits.

    Many companies also choose to take advantage of the unregulated use of the above legal loop holes to make their product appear safe when it may not be. 

    If an oil or an ingredient is certified organic, or certified ToxicFree®, etc. by law, an authentic certification comes with the oil or the ingredient. 

    If there is no genuine third party certification present: 
    • the likelihood of pesticide contamination is extremely high.
    • there is no proof the oil or ingredient is not contaminated with pesticides, toxic chemicals, fillers, etc.   
    For these reasons, Essanté Organics Essential Oils are certified USDA Organic. 
    Essanté Organics Essential Oils are proven to be free from all harmful toxins and pesticides 
    by a proven, third party certifier: The United States Department of Agriculture Organic Program.
    Each oil has earned the USDA Organic Certification.
    All of Essanté Organics' third party organic certifications are posted online in the Back Office.

      Is better tha the vegetable glycerine and other ingredients in Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste Polish healthy and are they proven to workn other brands?  
     

    Yes. Essanté Organics was established in 2009 and is proud to share that Sparkle Toothpaste Polish is a top 5 best seller within the entire product line. Essanté Organics toothpaste receives rave reviews and testimonials, several which are featured below and more are online inside "albums" at www.Facebook.com/EssanteOrganicsLLC. Essanté Organics toothpaste is certified ToxicFree®, assuring every user, from infant to elderly it is 100% free from all harmful, health-impairing chemicals and toxins including fluoride.  The safe and effective ingredients in Essanté Organics toothpaste kill the bacteria that cause plaque, gum disease, gingivitis, infections and cavities. Essanté Organics toothpaste contains Stabilized Oxygen; the safest, most powerful, FDA approved, active, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial ingredient on earth. Essanté Organics uses safe BPA free containers, has a strict no animal testing policy, and all products also showcase the Essanté Organics trademark: Leaves Green Footprint®. For details on what Essanté Organics stands for visit Quality Commitment on the website. All Essanté Organics ingredients are 100% non-GMO plant or mineral derived. See the label for all toxic free and organic toothpaste ingredients. 


    pH balanced, ToxicFree®, and Organic Toothpaste Ingredients in Sparkle Tooth Polish: 


    Organic Vegetable Glycerine / Glycerin / Glycerol (all 3 scientific terms are interchangeable and refer to the same ingredient) is a certified ToxicFree® humectant that keeps toothpaste polish moist, and adds a pleasant sweet flavor.  Essanté Organics obtains all glycerine from non-GMO vegetable sources, versus the more common sourcing practice from animal by-products. Clinical studies show vegetable glycerine is soluble in water and does not cause demineralization of the teeth as bleaching agents do (demineralization occurs when the pH balance of plaque is lowered). Glycerine is not acidic it a base, and an excellent ingredient choice clinically proven to help improve overly sensitive teeth.   


    Sodium Chlorite (Stabilized Oxygen) is by far nature’s and scientist’s safest, most powerful, and number one antimicrobial on earth. See Essanté Organics Stabilized Oxygen Antimicrobial Efficacy Sheet (on line) for a list of all the bacteria, fungi, and viruses it kills including strep, staph, Salmonella, Hep C, HIV, E Coli, Candida, Herpes and more. Essanté Organics Sodium Chlorite is certified ToxicFree®, FDA approved, and it breaks down into a form of table salt.  


    Calcium Carbonate is a certified ToxicFree® mineral that delivers strong cleaning power to help remove stains and plaque, as well as polish teeth.  Calcium carbonate provides enough abrasion to remove plaque and stains, yet protects and keeps tooth enamel in tact. Note: minerals cannot be classified as organic. 


    Sorbitol is a certified ToxicFree®, non-GMO, slow-metabolizing glucose derived from fruit or seaweed.  It adds a healthy sweetness and sustains a good pH balance in the mouth.  It does not lower the pH of plaque like sugar, which causes the demineralization of tooth enamel. 


    Organic Mentha piperita (Peppermint) Oil Essanté Organics begins with fresh, organic mint leaves and applies a proprietary triple distillation process.  This extra step yields a very smooth, refreshing, sweet taste and scent, especially compared with most sharp, harsh peppermint tastes from processed leaves sprayed with pesticides. Essanté Organics' organic peppermint ingredient holds a multitude of scientifically proven properties including: analgesic, anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-viral.  


    Xylitol is a certified ToxicFree® natural sugar found in plums, strawberries, raspberries, and birch trees. Essanté Organics sources all Xylitol from non-GMO birch trees.  Xylitol replaces synthetic saccharine that can cause health issues.  Xylitol also replaces sugars that can lead to tooth decay.  Xylitol helps prevent cavities by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, including Streptococcus. 

    Organic Xanthan Gum is a natural gum plant thickener that thickens Essanté Organics toothpaste and helps keep Sparkle Tooth Polish moist for a 2-year shelf life.


    Organic Stevia is an unrefined powder Essanté Organics derives from dried, organic, green stevia leaves. It is an extremely useful herb in oral hygiene formulations, and is one of the organic Sparkle Toothpaste Polish ingredients. Essanté Organics uses grade A organic stevia, due to it’s highly effective antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.  Research shows organic stevia can stop dental decay and bleeding gums when used for an extended period of time, primarily due to its capability to kill bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum diseases.  Tooth decay and gum diseases are the two most common problems faced by diabetics, therefore using organic stevia in Sparkle Toothpaste Polish is said to be beneficial for diabetic patients. Organic stevia is multi advantageous because it provides zero-calorie sweetness and oral health benefits. Medidart® shares organic stevia’s vast health benefits including its ability to help aid in: diabetic control, weight loss, blood pressure regulation, oral health, bone health, skin health and more.  These benefits go a long way in motivating some of us to brush with Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste Polish more than the average 2 times per day.  In addition, Essanté Organics selects and uses the finest quality organic stevia on earth, because it does not have an aftertaste as lower grade stevia typically does.  


    Decyl Glucoside is a pure, certified ToxicFree® coconut derived glucose cleanser that creates a foam which traps Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste Polish onto the gums and teeth long enough to provide powerful antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory actions.   


    RDA rating of Sparkle Toothpaste Polish, the #1 choice for sensitive teeth: 

    Teeth become sensitive when tooth enamel is worn away, and the permeable tooth layer below, known as dentin, is exposed.  Many toothpastes are overly abrasive and actually strip away tooth enamel, which may not grow back. The 1st protocol a dentist will recommend for patients with sensitive teeth is a less abrasive toothpaste.  Abrasiveness in toothpaste is measured in RDA units or Relative Dentin Abrasivity.  This table demonstrates the RDA rating of Sparkle Toothpaste Polish and other toothpaste brands:

    Tooth enamel and gums:

    Tooth enamel is much like a catacomb of conduit. It conveys nutrients between the outside and the inside of the tooth. Brushing your teeth with Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste Polish, 2-3 times daily helps to prevent plaque & cavities, freshen breath, and restore healthy gums (bleeding gums can be a precursor of heart disease). In addition, Essanté Organics certified ToxicFree® Sparkle Toothpaste Polish formula helps keep tooth enamel safe and restores greater oral health, which is paramount to your body’s overall ability to prevent serious diseases.  It's important to avoid neurotoxic and carcinogenic toothpaste ingredients to assist your body’s overall ability to sustain helath. 


    No Fluoride (why Essanté Organics does not use it) : 

    Most USA toothpastes on the market contain fluoride, despite the many documented health alerts and toxic effects it has on the human body.  Some countries have banned fluoride due to a mass number of health risks. Every toothpaste containing fluoride carries this fluoride warning label on the toothpaste box: WARNING Keep out of the reach of children. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately. If irritation occurs discontinue use.


    No Triclosan (why Essanté Organics does not use it):

    Many toothpastes on the market today contain triclosan, despite the many cancer alerts associated with this dangerous ingredient. Researchers have proven triclosan, a commonly used antibacterial, can react with chlorinated water to produce chloroform gas. If inhaled in large enough quantities, chloroform can cause depression, liver issues and cancer.  

    No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or SLS or SLES (why Essanté Organics does not use it):

    99% of all toothpastes on the market today contains SLS, a toxic and synthetic industrial strength chemical foaming agent (detergent). Research has proven SLS causes:

    1) the break down of protein / gum tissue 

    2) inflammation of gums

    3) gastrointestinal or liver toxicity

    4) recurrent painful mouth ulcers (almost 20% of population suffers with these) 

    5) cell membranes to dissolve & is used in labratories to expose DNA


    No Propylene Glycol (why Essanté Organics does not use it):

    Many toothpastes contain Glycols which are harsh solvents proven to break down gum tissue and are a potential culprit in increasing gum disease. 

    No Artificial Colors or Flavors (why Essanté Organics does not use these):

    Research shows “flavoring” is a way companies can hide cheap, toxic fillers without disclosing them to the consumer.  


    Testimonials:

    “I’ve had severe gum issues since high school. I’ve tried everything & done all the right stuff like brushing & flossing. I almost had no gums left on my top & lost half on bottom. After Essanté Organics Sparkle I started to see a huge improvement on my gums. After 3 weeks, I have 70 % back on bottom and 50% back on my top! I didn't know receding gums could be reversed but my gums are growing back. And my girls have always had a yellow tint to their teeth, and now their teeth are white. All of us see tartar being removed!"

    Wendy A.


    "I went to the dentist for my 6 Month cleaning & I got the best report ever, both my hygienist & dentist said they couldn't believe how much I improved over a 6 month period.  My gums were stronger, no deep pockets & very little calcium build up. They ask me what I changed. I told them I started using Essanté Organics Sparkle Tooth Polish / Toothpaste. He took a stack of my business cards & started passing them out to his staff and said he has patients that can really use Sparkle. I am a happy girl.”

    Barbara B. 


    "Before I started using Essanté Organics Sparkle my two front teeth had white scratches. After using Sparkle for a few months, the discolored marks are totally gone!! I cannot explain how clean my mouth & teeth feel! I love Essanté Organics Sparkle Toothpaste & everything about Essante Organics!!"

    Karla D.

    Cynthia F. 


    “I met a man using Rembrandt as a "natural organic" toothpaste. He wanted a sample of Essanté Organics Sparkle. I checked to see how he liked it. His words exactly, "I am switching my toothpaste, because it works better than Rembrandt & costs less.” 

    Elitia M.

    "Finally! A toothpaste our little girl ASKS for! Essante Organics Sparkle."

    Dianne W.


    "I have noticed my teeth getting whiter & my gums don’t feel sore like when I used regular toothpaste. I've been using Essanté Organics Sparkle for 35 days & we still have yet to use half a tube. That is great news, because it saves my family money & their health."

    Nathan N. 


    "I've been using Essanté Organics Sparkle Tooth for a week & a half now. All I can say is WOW! My teeth feel cleaner & are less sensitive now. My Essanté Organics Sparkle Aha moment: Typically a few days after a cleaning, my teeth are sore & my gums bleed a little while brushing. I had my cleaning 2 days ago & my teeth haven't been sore at all & my gums haven't bled while brushing. As with MANY of Essanté Organics products, Sparkle has become a staple in our household.” 

    Armando C.  


    "When I would brush my teeth with "brand x" the flavor of things I would eat or drink afterwards wouldn't be good. Today I brushed with Essanté Organics Sparkle & went downstairs where hubby had left 1/2 of a peach for me. I thought it wouldn't taste right after having just brushed, but I was delightfully surprised the peach tasted like a peach. Thanks Essanté Organics for not polluting my mouth." 

    Cheryl H.


    "I noticed after Essanté Organics Sparkle my gums felt good and I liked the taste. The peppermint was so clean tasting and fresh, & I didn’t have a coating on my teeth, mouth or throat the way I did with other toothpastes, even “natural” ones. I’m totally sold on Essanté Organics Sparkle & don’t plan on every going back to any other brand. Not when I can get ALL my other organic products at the same place too!"

    Diana E. 


    Directions:

     Q What is cellulitis and how do I treat and get rid of this swollen rash and itchy skin? My doctor prescribed antibiotics but is there another way? What are the best products or oils for cellulitis. 
    Per the FDA we cannot use the medical term, condition and diagnosis cellulitis.  For this reason, let's talk about swollen skin, itchy skin and skin with a rash. 

    According to this WebMD article, cellulitis is an infection usually caused by group A streptococcus, the same bacterium that leads to strep throat. But it may also be due to Staphylococcus aureus, such as MRSA. You may view the article by clicking this link: http://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/cellulitis-directory

    Essanté Organics Sanitizer and Baby Foam products, both with safe Stabilized Oxygen, may support healthy skin because according to each product's Stabilized Oxygen Efficacy Sheet serious bacteria, fungi, and viruses including salmonella, polio, Hep C, strep, staph, MRSA, HIV and more are killed on contact. Essanté Organics Stabilized Oxygen Efficacy Sheet is posted next to Sanitizer and Baby Foam on the website or you may view it by clicking this link: https://www.essanteorganics.com/Portals/2014/docs/Sanitizer_Efficacy_Data.pdf

    Licensed aromatherapists share Tea Tree essential oil and Jojoba carrier oil are both the best essential oils for healthy skin and may support rashes and itchy, bumpy, blemished, red, swollen skin.  Tea Tree and Lavender are the only essential oils that may be applied directly to the skin without the use of a carrier oil. Jojoba carrier oil may be applied directly to the skin without dilution as well, and its fatty acid profile is almost identical to the fatty acid profile of human skin. Or consider adding 5 drops of Tea Tree essential oil to a 1 oz Sanitizer bottle and mist skin. 

    What are the best Essanté Organics supplements to boost immunity naturally?  
     A Essante Organics Bee Natural with propolis and bee pollen may support a healthy and strong immune system. Many studies demonstrate the antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral properties of bee pollen.

     Q Are the results in the Stabilized Oxygen Efficacy Sheet from one test or a higher number of tests? What were the conditions in which the test was done? What are the names of your laboratories and the names of your scientists who performed the testing? 
     A https://www.essanteorganics.com/Portals/2014/docs/Sanitizer_Efficacy_Data.pdf

    Q: Are the results in this table from one test or from a higher number?

    A: Sanitizer's Stabilized Oxygen Efficacy Sheet results are from more than one test.

    Q: What were the conditions in which this test was done? 
    A: Essanté Organics follows GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) protocol during all testing procedures. Essanté Organics uses third party laboratories and QAQC (Quality Assurance Quality Control) chemists to perform ingredient, product and efficacy testing.  Testing facilities are audited and all lighting, plumbing, sewage, washing stations, and calibrated testing equipment are to GMP standards. The accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, and reproducibility of test methods are to GMP standards. 

    Q: Have you got names available of institutes and/or scientists who conducted these studies and can confirm its statistical relevance? 
    A: Just as Essanté Organics' ingredient suppliers are proprietary, so are the testing laboratories used and the names of all associated personnel at each laboratory. Essanté Organics meets with the USDA National Organic Program and Essanté Organics' labeling attorneys each time a product is launched, to ensure ethical delivery of all product information.
     Q Which products including essential oils are the best to use on open unhealed skin wounds? Which oils can be applied neat (without dilution) and which oils require dilution with a carrier oil such as Essanté Organics USDA Organic Jojoba Carrier oil?
     A

    According to PubMed, the following 4 essential oils can be applied to open skin wounds in order to help facilitate the healing process. 


    The only essential oils that can be applied neat (directly without dilution) on open wounds, sores, cuts, bites, lacerations, incisions, etc. are : 

    1. Tea Tree (Melaleuca)

    2. Lavender (Lavandula anguvstifolia)


    1. Essanté Organics Certified USDA Organic Tea Tree (Melaleuca) may be the best essential oil used for open wound care and healing, due to its powerful anti-microbial and cleansing properties, according to PubMed medical studies including:   

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15928624

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10735256

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21564552

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26328444


    2. Essanté Organics Certified USDA Organic Lavender (Lavandula anguvstifolia) may be the best essential oil used to speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, burns, sunburns, open skin ulcers, episiotomy surgeries, and to reduce the pain associated with these issues, due to its ability to improve scar tissue, according to PubMed medical studies including: 

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25384116

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22558691


    3. Essanté Organics Certified USDA Organic Frankincense (Boswellia rivae) may be the best essential oil (to dilute with a carrier oil like Jojoba Oil) and then use for open wound, carcinoma radiotherapy, and contact dermatitis healing due to its effective antiseptic, disinfectant and germ elimination properties, plus it can protect wounds from becoming infected and septic, according to PubMed medical studies including:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25967706

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15373853

    4. Essanté Organics Roll-On Ready Organic Helichrysum Suffused in Coconut Oil may be the best essential oil, already diluted in a carrier oil of Coconut Oil and ready to roll-on, to use for open and persistent wound infections, due to its antibiotic properties and its ability to protect wounds from becoming infected or septic, according to PubMed medical studies including:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26042155

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20490761

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19915741

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11397624


    5. If your medical doctor agrees, consider adding 5-10 drops of your favorite single essential oil(s) listed above to Essanté Organics 1 oz Sanitizer and spray skin and all surfaces you come in contact with, as needed.  Essanté Organics Sanitizer has the safe active ingredient of Stabilized Oxygen and the efficacy sheet and study of this powerful ingredient shows the time lapse kill rate of many viruses, fungi and bacteria including MRSA, Staph, E Coli, Strep and more.  The Stabilized Oxygen Efficacy Sheet is posted next to the product on the website and here for your convenience:

     Q I see folic acid is in KidsPops. What is folic acid and where does Essanté Organics get their folic acid from?  
     A

    Folic acid, a more popular term for folate, is vitamin B9, an essential water-soluble B vitamin naturally found in certain citrus fruits, dark leafy green vegetables, and legumes. Water soluble means the body does not store it. Essanté Organics uses natural folate from citrus, vegetables and legumes as their source of folic acid in all products. Essanté Organics does not formulate products with synthetic vitamins, instead our vitamins are sourced from whole food nutrition, making them more bio-absorbable. Vitamin B9 (or folic acid or folate) is important for many bodily functions, including the synthesis of DNA and RNA, the conversation of carbohydrates into fuel, the production of energy, and the balancing of both mental and emotional brain health. It is recommended for pregnant women, and women who may become pregnant, to fortify their diet with a folic acid supplement to help prevent severe birth defects including spina bifida. Folic acid (folate) supplementation is also recommended for people with nutritional absorption deficiencies, including Crohn’s Disease, Celiac Disease, and IBS. The University of Maryland Medical Center shares vitamin B9 seems to work with vitamins B6 and B12 and other nutrients to protect against the development of some forms of cancer (including colon cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, pancreatic cancer, and stomach cancer).  Synergistically these B vitamins may also help control blood levels associated with heart disease, reduce the risk of age-related hearing and vision loss, and decrease depression. The University of Maryland Medical Center also shares it is fairly common to have low levels of folic acid because alcoholism, nutritional absorption diseases and certain medications can cause folic acid deficiency.  This deficiency can lead to poor growth, tongue inflammation, gingivitis, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, diarrhea, irritability, forgetfulness and mental sluggishness. Popular Essanté Organics supplements that contain natural folic acid (folate) are KidsPops, Bee Natural and 7.365 pH Protein Shake.   

     
     Q How does Essanté Organics certify their organic products? Could you please tell me why Essanté Organics essential oils are USDA Organic but skin care and nutrition products are not? I understand we have several organic certifications but why are some of them not from the USDA? Why are not all Essanté Organics products USDA Organic certified?
     A

    Essanté Organics uses the USDA NOP® as well as multiple other credentialed organic and toxic free certifying agents. 

    In addition Essanté Organics, as most larger operations, primarily certify per ingredient, instead of per product, due to their universal use of ingredients across many products. 

    For example: Essanté Organics can use the same certified organic lavender essential oil in multiple product formulations, thus the ingredient is certified organic. This method of per-ingredient certification often assists in streamlining the research, development and formulation process.  

    It is important to note it is not necessary to "double certify" (certify the product's individual ingredients as well as certify the full end product itself), yet in some instances Essanté Organics will double certify, as long as it does not pass any additional certification costs on to the customer.      

    It's also important to note Essanté Organics uses wildcrafted ingredients in many products due to their pureness, hardiness and extraordinarily rich nutritional composition.  Wildcrafted plants, herbs, roots, barks, berries, nuts, etc. are not planted in rows or hothouses, nor are they irrigated with metal or plastic piping, nor are they given city treated water or organic fertilizers. Botanicals which grow in their indigenous area, find their own natural water, nutrient, and mineral sources by growing a far deeper root structure, thus they are often far more nutrient and mineral dense when compared to most organically farmed botanicals which are not typically allowed the opportunity to grow as nature intended.  Wildcrafted ingredients are not considered organic because the indigenous cultivation of the ingredient is not regulated by any organic certifying agency, thus wildcrafted ingredients (and products containing more than 5% of wildcrafted ingredients) cannot be certified organic. 

    Details:

    Essanté Organics products, including Body & Spa products, are certified by each individual ingredient, especially where the ingredient list is long and extensive. Less complex products, products with short ingredient lists (including single essential oils, it doesn't get shorter than 1 ingredient) are often certified as a complete product. Products with minerals cannot be certified organic. 

    Essanté Organics certifies ingredients and complete products in the following ways:

    Individual ingredients are:
    • Certified USDA Organic® (see all ingredients with an *).
    • Certified to USDA Organic standards by certifying agencies governed by the USDA NOP® (see all ingredients with a single asterisk *).
    • Certified EcoCert® (see all ingredients with a double asterisk **).
    • Certified ToxicFree® (every ingredient inside products that feature a ToxicFree® Seal are each certified ToxicFree®).
    • Wildcrafted (Note: the ToxicFree® Foundation does not certify nutrition products, for this reason you will not see the ToxicFree® Seal on any nutritional product, instead you will see wildcrafted ingredients and organic ingredients in each ingredient deck on the label).
    Complete products are:
    • Certified USDA Organic®  (see products with the USDA Organic® Seal - this complete product seal means 95% of all ingredients within the ingredient deck are certified by the USDA NOP® as Organic). For example Essanté Organics Selfie Style Hairspray, pHreshen Up Deodorant, Lip Balms and more are Certified USDA Organic® products. 
    • Certified to USDA Organic standards by USDA NOP® approved organic certifying agents (See products with Clemson University® Seal, Vermont Organic Farmers® Seal, etc. - this complete product seal means 95% of all ingredients within the ingredient deck are certified Organic). For example Essanté Organics White Willow Body Bar and Purple Mountain Body Bar and more are Certified Organic by Vermont Organic Farmers®. Note: Products containing natural minerals cannot be classified as organic including Blue Springs Body Bar & more. 
    • Certified ToxicFree® (see products with ToxicFree® Seal - this complete product seal means 100% of the ingredients within the ingredient deck are certified ToxicFree®). For example many of Essanté Organics Oral Care Products, Facial Care products, Hair Care products, Home Care products, Baby Care products and more are certified ToxicFree® products. 
    Essanté Organics is committed to using 3rd party credentialed certification agencies, including those listed above (and in your back office), to ensure every ingredient is 100% free from all harmful toxins including pesticides, heavy metals, industrial chemicals, pollutants, etc.

     Q What does saponified mean? What is saponification? Does Essanté Organics use lye / sodium hydroxide to make their Body Bar Soaps? Do Essanté Organics Purple Mountain, White Willow and Blue Springs Body Bar Soaps contain lye / sodium hydroxide? 
    If the question is, “Does Essanté Organics use lye (sodium hydroxide) to make their Body Bars?” The answer is, “Absolutely. No lye, no soap.”

    If the question is, “Do Essanté Organics Body Bars contain lye?” The answer is, “Absolutely not! And we have the organic certifications to prove it.”


    Every TRUE bar of soap must initially form by using lye (sodium hydroxide) and mixing it with liquid, in our case certified organic oils. Any skin cleanser made without sodium hydroxide is a detergent, not a soap. While all real soap must be made with lye, no lye remains in our finished product after saponification (described below).

    At Essanté Organics we take certified organic oils and turn them into gentle, yet high performance, organic cleansing soaps which deliver health benefits. The process of turing oils into soap is called saponification (making soap). First, our soap is boiled in organic grain alcohol and raw organic sugars to form a bar that is as clear as glass. 

    Essanté Organics soap is made from certified organic essential oils and an alkaline solution. The oil and the alkali must be in perfect balance to create the perfect bar of soap.

    Bar soaps have been made for hundreds of years. Just like boiling water and creating fire, saponifying oil and fat into soap is one of the oldest and most simple chemical reactions produced by humans. The very first soaps were discovered accidentally, when fat dripped from the spit into the ashes of cooking fires. In those days, the alkali solution to make soap consisted of rainwater that was filtered through the ashes of hardwoods. In Africa and in the South Pacific coconut husk and plantain ashes were used to make a hydroxide solution. In New England maple ashes were used to make a hydroxide solution. Later, thankfully, the age of electricity was born. Today, bar soaps, including Essanté Organics body bar soaps, are made from the solution created when electricity is run through salt water (sodium hydroxide).

    Essanté Organics oils are carefully chosen, specifically for the qualities each organic oil imparts to the final certified organic body bar soap. Certified organic coconut oil is chosen for its ability to create a great amount of healthy glycerin, which makes rich bubbly lather and is very healthy for the skin. Certified organic olive oil is chosen for its high content of natural antioxidants and its ability to create creamy lather.

    Un-saponified oils are called free fatty acids. Use too many fatty acids, and the soap will not lather or last. Excess alkali (called free alkali) is harsh and drying and irritating to the skin. Approximately 1 out of 4 bar soaps on the market contain harsh free alkali. It’s when oil and alkali fail to merge chemically that alkali salts (sodium hydroxide and oxygen) are left in the product. Alkali salts have a high pH and they over dry and irritate the skin. 

    Essanté Organics uses certified organic oils and zero leftover free alkali remains in our soaps. This why our handmade, cold-pressed body bar soaps are extremely mild and why they pass inspection and are certified organic to USDA organic standards by credentialed organic certifiers including Vermont Organic Farmers.

    Essanté Organics Body Bar Soaps do not contain: alkali salts (sodium hydroxide), alcohol, artificial ingredients, preservatives or toxic chemicals of any kind. Remember Essanté Organics Body Bar Soaps are certified organic, unless minerals are present (minerals cannot be classified as organic). 

    Essante’ Organics bar soaps are made using a modern version of a three hundred year-old european method:

    First, certified organic oils of Palm, Coconut, Olive and Palm Kernel are blended and mixed at exact cold-processing temperatures with an alkali solution made from running electricity through salt water. The batch is mixed for hours, allowing it to thicken slowly. Once the batch is ready organic botanicals, herbs, spices and grains are added. In some bars minerals are added. Afterwards, the batch is poured into wooden molds and kept warm for about three days. As the soap solidifies, alkali salts rise to the top like cream. Around the fourth day the soap, in solid mass block form, is removed from the molds. All alkali salts are fully skimmed and removed. Once this process is complete the large bars are cut into individual bars and placed on stainless steel drying screens and cured for three more weeks. Each certified organic ingredient on the label is noted with an asterisks (*) and the completed end product is also certified organic by organic certifiers (credentialed, non-biased, 3rd party, USDA organic approved certifiers). This process produces the mildest, most deeply moisturizing soaps in the world, soaps that last twice as long as conventional bar soaps, and soaps that pass strict scrutiny and meet all certified organic criteria, ensuring every bar is 100% free from toxins.

     Q Are All Essanté Organics products, including Earth Greens Powder and Capsules gluten free?  
    All Essanté Organics products, including Earth Greens Powder and Earth Greens Capsules, are gluten free. 

    It is important to note grasses are not grains. If you are avoiding barley grass or wheat grass or kamut grass or lemon grass, because you feel you are avoiding the protein called gluten, all of these grasses are safe. Barley grass, wheat grass / wheatgrass, kamut grass, lemon grass / lemongrass, oat grass, and alfalfa are naturally and totally gluten-free. 

    Every ingredient used by Essanté Organics, including grasses, leaves, roots, fruits, and vegetables are naturally and totally gluten free. 

    In order for a product to legally state "Gluten Free" on the label, the product must be tested and pass strict parts per million (ppm) criteria, as monitored by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).  Gluten free products must show 20 ppm or less.  In other words, for every 1 million parts of a product, only a maximum of 20 of those 1 million parts are permitted to be gluten. 

    From The Food and Drug Administration (FDA): 
    The FDA allows manufacturers to label a food "gluten-free" as long as the food does not contain any of the following:
    1. no ingredients that are any type of grain: wheat, rye, barley, or crossbreeds of these.
    2. no ingredients derived from these grains and that have not been processed to remove gluten.
    3. no ingredients derived from these grains and that have been processed to remove gluten, if it results in the food containing 20 or more parts per million (ppm) gluten.
    4. Foods that inherently do not have gluten may be labeled gluten free.
    Foods that inherently do not have gluten can include: 
    Bottled spring water, fruits, vegetables, grasses, leaves, stems, roots and eggs.

    From The Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG):
    The GIG, a national celiac disease support organization, has researched the gluten-free status of barley grass and wheat grass. They concluded, along with The US Department of Agriculture research chemists (who specialize in wheat gluten and cereal proteins), that gluten is only found in the seed kernel and the endosperm, and is not found in the stem or leaves. 

    From The American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC):
    The AACC agrees with the GIG.  The AACC states if the grass is cut from a growing plant, and does not include the seed kernel, it should be safe for those who follow the gluten-free diet. 
     
     Q How do I use the pH Test Kit Strips? May I use them in saliva or urine stream or both?  
    Yes, please enjoy the directions on the back of the insert inside the plastic spool container (on the backside of the color pH chart):

    "Essanté Organics. 7.365 is perfect pH for humans.  FOR IN VITRO USE ONLY. DO NOT USE INTERNALLY. Dip paper into saliva (or 1st urine stream).  Shake off excess fluid and read IMMEDIATELY."
     
     Q  Why does Chocolate / Chocoholic Kiss 7.365 pH Shake have more sugar and healthy fat compared to Vanilla / Vanilla Ice Cream Rave 7.365 pH Shake? 
     A  Cocoa is higher in natural fats and sugar, yet there are no added fats or sugars in any of Essanté Organics 7.365 pH Shakes.
     Q  Why is it recommended we take 1 scoop of Earth Greens Powder in 24 ounces / ounces / oz of water, three (3) times a day?
     A  8 - 8oz glasses of water is the minimum recommended water intake for humans or 64oz per day.  The 8x8 rule is easy to remember. Earth Greens Powder is 3 x 24oz or 72 ounces of water per day. So 1 extra 8oz glass per day, just for good measure. Yet Earth Greens Powder can be taken in less water, based on personal preference. Just remember, flushing out toxins and staying hydrated is important to overall healthy body function.
