My partner and I were discussing what we could do for a Black Friday special on coconut oil, and he got completely nuts on me. My jaw about hit the floor when he told me we should offer case packs of twelve 16oz jars of organic virgin coconut oil for $59.99 with free shipping. This is a HUGE savings over normal prices. That’s the equivalent of 1.5 gallons of oil in individual jars for $59.99. This is a great size to use as gifts to others who may never have tried coconut oil before. Offer ends 12/1/2010. No other offers or coupons apply. Here’s the link: http://www.providentessentials.com/o…k-12-16oz.html We bring this oil over from the Philippines. Unlike RBD oil, which is made from dried copra (coconut meat) that is unsuitable for human consumption and needs additional processing before being eaten, our oil is made from freshly picked organic coconuts that are cold pressed. The tree, farm, process, and final product are all certified organic. There are no chemicals involved in bringing the product to market. It is also considered a raw food because it isn’t subjected to any high heat during processing. My virgin coconut oil is much more stable than other oils, even virgin olive oil, and has a much longer shelf life. The cold press process keeps the moisture content of the oil extremely low, so this assists in keeping the oil fresher longer. It has a long shelf life compared to other oils. Usually 2-5 years. It is primarily used as a replacement for your cooking oil, but there are MANY other uses. It really is a perfect item for food storage. Here are some other uses (many of which my family does): Taken from Natural News… Colds and Sore Throats – Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties that can help you recover from a cold. Mix it with warm tea and honey for a very soothing throat remedy. Cuts and Scrapes – Coconut oil can be used as a topical cream for common cuts and scrapes, protecting against infection while conditioning the skin to heal faster. It may also prevent scarring. Dandruff – Several times per week, coat your fingertips with coconut oil and massage it into your scalp for an easy dandruff cure. This is an effective yet gentle method, suitable for young children or babies with cradle cap, too. Deodorant – You can use coconut oil by itself as a deodorant that leaves underarms feeling silky soft, or you can add baking soda and cornstarch for advanced odor protection. Detoxification – There are many methods for detoxifying the body, but coconut oil is unique because it can provide energy while cleansing the body. One popular method is to take 1-2 tablespoon of coconut oil seven times per day for one to seven days to cleanse the body from toxins, impurities and candida. Fungal Infections – Coconut oil contains strong antifungal agents, and can be used to treat fungal infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, thrush and vaginal yeast infections. You can use it internally and topically for these conditions. Hair Conditioner – Apply a thin layer of coconut oil to your scalp and hair. Allow it to soak for several minutes and then wash as usual. There is no need to use other conditioners with this method, even after washing with shampoo. Lip Balm – Lip moisturizers are filled with chemicals, and natural products are often pricey. If you need a moisturizer for your lips, try coconut oil in a commercial lip balm container. Make-up Remover – Coconut oil is a very effective make-up remover, so you can toss out all the chemical-laden products from the drug store. It’s also a natural moisturizer, so it won’t cause dryness or irritation. Skin Conditions – Since coconut oil is moisturizing, antimicrobial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, it’s a great natural remedy for all kinds of skin problems ranging from eczema to acne to diaper rash. Sun screen – Coconut oil provides effective and natural sun protection without exposing your body to the toxic chemicals and metals in conventional sun block. Coconut oil protects against free radicals, which provides added protection against skin cancer. Toothpaste – Mix an equal amount of coconut oil and baking soda for an all-natural, fluoride-free toothpaste. Add spearmint or peppermint oil with stevia for a fresh, sweet flavor.

  • Do you understand what this means for you?

  • Are you ready?

  • Do you have Heirloom (Non-hybrid) seeds in your food storage?

…It is similar to what India faced with imposition of the salt tax during British rule, only S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

Monsanto says it has no interest in the bill and would not benefit from it, but Monsanto’s Michael Taylor who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed it and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — if it passes.  S 510 would give Monsanto unlimited power over all US seed, food supplements, food and farming….

LISTEN HERE: Sanitation

I found a great blogTALKradio preparedness station that has some excellent topics. They present live and then they can be downloaded.  I’m adding the one I listened to tonight on Sanitation and the importance of having a good plan.  It’s a “If you get this wrong you die” type of topic in an emergency and he does a great job.

It’s very interesting and worth your time to listen to.
