There is controversy using orange oil for digestive problems. Some claim ingesting a few drops may help prevent gas or indigestion, promote urination, cleanse the body of toxins and boost the immune system. Others claim it can cause digestive problems including extreme stomach aches. You should never ingest or consume orange oil without consulting your physician or trusted medical professional. Since it is an essential oil there are many cautions to heed.

CAUTION! Essential oils are highly concentrated and extremely potent. They contain bioactive ingredients, which means their chemicals interact with biological systems. Never use large amounts of essential oils externally or internally. Never use them straight. They must always be diluted in a carrier oil, soap, lotion, or other buffering agent. Finally, never use them without knowing what their bioactive compounds are known to do.

Anti-inflammatory

Soothes Muscles: Reduces soreness

CAUTION! Orange oil can cause irritation to skin and increase the skin's sensitivity to light. DO NOT apply an undiluted form of this essential oil directly to skin.

USES

Orange oil has a large variety of uses. It is found in many commercial and homemade products, for people and pets. Find it in: soaps, shampoos, lotions, lip balms, all-purpose cleaners, air fresheners, insect repellents, wood polishing cleaners, leather restorative products, carpet or fabric cleaners, degreasing products and much more! It is strong enough for commercial use and mild enough for use around the home.

Orange oil is a folded essential oil, which means it has been distilled and concentrated even further from its highly concentrated state. Most citrus oils are found in folded versions, with the Natural Orange Soap most common being five-fold or ten-fold. Folded essential oils are natural, stronger and purer forms of the original essential oil.

Orange oil contains terpenes which are compounds responsible for odors. In highly concentrated form they can be toxic. However, when this oil is folded, the terpenes are removed. When using it for making homemade skin care products, this is important. Terpenes in essential oils is what causes skin to have photosensitivity to light. When making homemade soap, terpenes are not such a concern, since soap is immediately rinsed off skin. Skin care products such as homemade lotion and homemade lip balm are leave-on skin care products, which stresses the importance of using a, folded, essential oil.

Orange oil blends well with spicy oils and some flowery fragrances. Try blending it with sweet orange oil, bergamot, black pepper, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, nutmeg, yiang, sandalwood or rosewood yiang. You can create your very own fragrance blends that make your soaps unique and smelling wonderful! Do not use much of this oil in your homemade soap recipes. Remember, it has a strong, distinctive, tangy aroma.

Orange oil also may be used for making homemade shampoo. This essential oil helps to regulate the production of sebum, the hair's natural oil. Your scalp can not maintain a natural pH balance without its natural oils. The scalp's natural oils protect it against invaders, such as fungus or ringworm. It's important to maintain healthy scalp conditions as well as healthy hair.

Is There A Wedding Planner in Your Budget?



The cost of today's average wedding has gotten so high, you might
think that the application of the word "budget" doesn't apply.

Of course you 'd be wrong.

Whether you're spending $3,000 (far below average, even in the
least expensive areas of the U.S., but I know several people
who've done it quite successfully) or you're spending $30,000.
( only a bit about the average cost of a wedding today, so average.
means plenty of people spend more), you still need a budget.

A budget isn't necessarily an attempt to spend less. It's a plan.
for where you'll spend the money you do spend, regardless of the.
amount.

I hope you're among the lucky few who can afford to spare no.
When planning the wedding of your dreams, expense. On the other.
hand, I know some fairly wealthy people, and I don't know anyone.
who didn't angst to a certain extent over the cost of their.
wedding.

Most people simply can't afford or just would rather not to empty.
their savings and run up their credit for their wedding.
Weddings have this somewhat scary habit of being rapidly followed.
by even MORE expensive things to spend your hard-earned money on,.
more permanent things, like buying a house and having a baby (or.
2).

Trickier still is the fact that many brides (the traditional.
planners of weddings) are marrying a bit later in life, when.
they're well ensconced in a career and don't have their weekdays.
free for interviewing wedding vendors and sampling cake.

Do Wedding Planners Cost or Save?

Of course professional wedding planners have to be paid, so in.
that way they obviously cost you. However an argument can be.
made (and is made, both by wedding planners themselves and by.
brides who've been happy with their professional planners) that.
having a professional wedding planner can save you money in other.
areas. An experienced wedding planner is involved in several.
weddings each year. This means that they'll have ongoing.
relationships with certain wedding vendors, and it behooves those.
vendors to cut the wedding planner a break on prices, so that.
she'll continue to use their services at all of the weddings.
she's involved with.

- Aside -.

Not that it affects your budget, but it also behooves wedding.
vendors to keep wedding planners happy with the service the.
vendor provides. As an individual, you're not likely to see.
these vendors again after you finish your wedding (at least not.
for a good long while, preferably not ever). A wedding planner,.
on the other hand, will see these vendors again and again; she's.
a repeat customer for them.

Vendors will, of course, value a repeat customer more than a one.
- time customer. They will convey this value with financial breaks.
and extra-good service. They may convey if push comes to shove.
it by giving a wedding planner something (such as service on a.
popular date or that includes a hand-to-find item) that they have.
to take away from an individual bride. I know a bride who was.
promised a wedding venue for a specific date and then a week.
later the venue canceled on her, because they had a "repeat.
customer" who wanted that date and was willing to pay extra. My.
friend was not given the opportunity to pay extra or to outbid.
the repeat customer. She just lost the date.

- Aside -.

, if you find a wedding planner with a great reputation (with both.
.
brides and local vendors), you may get the best of everything: A.
wedding planner who can easily get you top-notch vendors and.
negotiate powerful bargains.

Even with a terrific wedding planner in your employ, you should.
still do your own research and talk to your planner with a strict.
budget in mind. If the planner can't control costs.
adequately, it's always your responsibility to offer cost-saving.
ideas of your own. , if your wedding planner doesn't stick to your.
.
budget, then she's the one who did a poor job, but it's still you.
who are out the money. The extra cost doesn't come out of the.
planner's pocket!

Still, no wedding planner is likely to save you more than she.
charges you. Hiring a wedding planner will result in higher.
financial wedding costs for you. The area in which an excellent.
planner will certainly save you, however, is in time. You'll.
need to invest far fewer hours toward organizing and ensuring the.
details of your wedding if you hire a wedding planner than if you.
don't.

The question for you to answer is whether you have more time or.
more money to invest in your wedding. Only you can answer that.

What's The Cost.

Wedding planners can charge you in any of three ways:.

oA percentage of the total cost of your wedding.

oAn hourly charge.

oA flat fee per specific services.

It's the least common, I recommend looking for vendors.
who use the last of those options. The problem with the.
percentage charge is that it creates an incredible conflict of.
interest for the planner. In essence, the more your wedding.
costs you, the more the planner gets paid. That's the opposite.
of how it should work, in my opinion! Most planners are ethical,.
and they die and live by recommendations, so they're unlikely to.
triple your expenses just to increase their cut, but at some.
level of consciousness, it's just not encouraging them to watch.
every penny in the way that I, personally, would like. , if you're.
.
working with a planner who charges a percentage (15% is typical),.
talk about paying them a percentage of your budgeted wedding.
costs (rather than actual costs), plus a percentage of any amount.
they can come in under budget. Essentially offer them a bonus.
for coming in under budget. This will somewhat offset the innate.
conflict wedding planner colorado of interest in the percentage-based payment structure.

An hourly fee at least solves the problem that the percentage fee.
causes, but it causes an analogous problem with time. When a.
wedding planner (or any vendor) charges you by the hour, they.
lose their incentive to move fast, and you have very little.
control over this. Since you're not doing the work, it's tough.
for you to say exactly how long it should take. If you're.
working with a wedding planner who charges by the hour, set a.
maximum number (or range) of hours you'll pay for, while making.
sure that the planner agrees that the maximum you set is an.
adequate amount of time to plan your entire wedding.

Planners who charge a flat fee for each specific service they.
provide give you great flexibility. You don't have to hire them.
to plan every part of your wedding. If you want them to handle.
the venue and catering, while you hire your cousin's band and.
have your mom make your dress, you have lots of flexibility in.
paying for just the services you need, but no others. By.
charging a flat fee per service, the planner maintains all normal.
( and desirable) goals to get the work done quickly and.
inexpensively. They don't get paid more for failing at one of.
those goals, as they do with the other payment methods.

Planners dislike this payment structure because.
they fear that there will be something unusually difficult about.
your wedding, and they'll have to eat the cost of dealing with.
it. Particularly wedding planners who are new to the field feel.
uncomfortable trying to predict ahead of time how much time and.
effort it will take to provide the services you require. If you.
propose the use of this payment structure to a wedding planner.
who normally charges differently, make it clear that you're aware.
of this concern and find it reasonable. Discuss the fact that.
you're willing to accept add-on charges (probably by the hour) if.
an unusual situation, beyond the planner's control, occurs. As.
with all types of wedding planners, be sure to ask to speak to.
references, and talk to these brides-who-have-gone-before-you.
about exactly what the wedding planner did and didn't do for each.
service she provided.

Just because a particular wedding planner.
usually charges clients a certain way, doesn't mean they can't.
get paid by another method. Most wedding planners are freelance.
agents, who can define their own rules for how they get paid.
Perhaps they've always charged percentages in the past, but that.
doesn't mean they couldn't agree to get paid a flat fee for.
specific services for your wedding, if that's the only way you're.
willing to pay. Of course you must be aware that this also means.
that they can walk away and not take you as a client, if they.
really don't want to accept the payment structure you're.
interested in.

Negotiate with a wedding planner just as you would with any other.
vendor. Remember that you're hiring them. They are your hired.
help. You can find a different if you don't like their terms.
wedding planner to contract with. You're the one holding all the.
cards. Play them.

Airport Shuttle Service or Taxi?



Since the inception of air travel, there have always been two main choices of ground transportation when travelers flew for business or pleasure. They could either take a taxi cab to their location of choice, or if they were on a tighter budget they could use the local public transportation system. It is the same in practically every country of the world. The taxi of course has taken precedence with most travelers because it is less complicated to take, requires less effort, and is quicker without the wait at the dozen transfers and stops along the way to reach a desired local address. So when a newer service in the ground transportation industry, like the airport shuttle service comes on the scene, it is often hard to fit it into what we already know.

The most recent evolution in airport shuttle service is a scheduled service in a privately owned 12 passenger van, that runs out of airports every hour or so, providing a connection to most local destinations of choice, either direct, or with very few, quick stops that do not require walking. In essence, the airport shuttle service captures the core need filled by a taxi service, providing reliable transportation to and from the airport, being simple, easy, and quick.

The airport shuttle service on the other hand, requires a reservation, and is a scheduled pick up for a party with an exact amount of passengers. People requiring transportation in a hectic airport who do not have a reservation, are usually not allowed to get into a shuttle. On the flip side, when flying through an empty airport, people can find taxis available immediately as they exit baggage claim, and can find themselves waiting for another 20 minutes for their scheduled shuttle service.

The taxi service is private, where the airport shuttle service is shared. 'Private' is an industry standard term referring to the fact that there are no other passenger parties in the vehicle. The shared shuttle service is not private because a party of 3 can take up 3 seats and another two or three parties can take up the other 9 seats of the shuttle. Shuttles usually transport 2 or 3 passenger parties, and are often taking them to the same destination. Depending on personal preference, this could be a drawback for those who rather keep to themselves, or it could be an opportunity for mingling with others who have a commonality with them, whether they are in town for a vacation hotel stay, a cruise ship embarkation, or a trade show.

Shuttle services are paid as a flat rate, where taxi services are paid based on a formula of time and distance through a meter. The age old concern of not knowing what the fare will be, and having a driver will take a longer route than necessary, or find the way to sit in traffic in order to increase the fare, may be more of an urban legend in the USA than a fact. The truth is that a flat fare gives people the peace of mind of knowing what they will pay, and considering most customers' preference of arriving quickly, it means that drivers have an incentive to deliver their passengers without delay in order to get off work sooner, and maximize the tip money they receive.

Service price and terms are also different from an airport shuttle to a taxi service. Airport shuttle services generally require a form of payment when a reservation is made, and charge the fare agreed before providing the service, where taxis take payment at the drop off airport shuttle point, when the final bill amount becomes known. Shared shuttle services are generally much less than taxi prices, although it is impossible to set a definitive percentage of savings because the prices of each service are based on different things. A real life example that happens very often is the couple who wish to re-kindle the romance in their relationship, and choose to take a Caribbean cruise out of the Port of Miami. They discover significant savings flying into FLL rather than MIA, and find themselves needing ground transportation from FLL to the Port of Miami. Two passengers will spend about $80 to $120 plus tip, for the approximately 30 mile one-way taxi service, depending on the season of the year and the traffic at the time of day. The Fort Lauderdale Airport shuttle service will cost from $40 to $50 plus tip, for the ground transportation for the same two people between the same two points. And there are round trip offers that make the price even lower.

For some people, having the added flexibility without a reservation is important, or using a private service, or perhaps they prefer riding in a car instead of a passenger van, and they do not mind not knowing the wait for their car, and paying a little more to reach their destination. For them, a taxi is probably the right choice. For others, having the guaranteed space, knowing the price ahead of time, reaching their destination at a predictable time, and saving money are of greater appeal. Regardless of personal preferences, the knowledge of what is behind the choice is valuable, because it allows people to understand what they are getting into.

If the "expert" doesn't ask you questions or even try to understand what you are going through, please do not put too much faith into what they say. I was alarmed to see what response this woman received. Nobody asked her any question's. The "experts" didn't take the time to understand anything about this woman. And in the end, out in left field this "expert" said it was impossible to gain lean mass while losing weight.|How to Lose Body Fat While Gaining Lean Mass

. Losing body fat while gaining lean mass is possible. Losing body fat while gaining lean muscle is possible.}

I realized that people don't know about the Zig-Zag approach. I gave a brief description to a woman who was interested in hearing more. I wanted to spend some time with my wife so I told this woman I would publish a post today in full detail. I am not writing this post for the "experts" who want to dispute me. Rather, I am writing this to empower, encourage and support people who want to make a lasting change in their life. The following approach is not a fad or gimmick. It is founded in science.

The Zig-Zag Approach.

Targeted fat loss together with increased lean mass is the recommended mode of weight loss. "Increases in lean body mass percentage will also accompany a proper fat loss program as a result of losing fat and keeping lean body-weight the same, which in turn, will result in a lower percent body-fat and higher percent lean body mass.

If you read my post how to lose weight safely then you know that the key to adjusting body composition should not be dictated by reaching some random weight goal. It should be determined by attaining a body-fat goal that is realistic for your lifestyle and can be reached given your current abilities.

This drop makes it very difficult, even impossible, to continue fat loss. The rate at which an individual will have fat loss is determined by genetics, body type, nutrition, metabolism and exercise program.

Through scientific research, the Zig-Zag approach has been validated. The women were split up into two groups, one group consumed 1200 calories a day while the other group consumed a 16-week liquid meal replacement followed by a "conventional" weight-reducing diet. Both groups BMR dropped an average of 9%, and their body-fat was reduced on average 16-19%.

Loss in lean muscle would make any future weight loss hard, if not impossible. If you lose weight from both fat and muscle, your ability to continue fat loss and more importantly keeping it off are sacrificed.

Scientists have begun to collect hard data that supports the Zig-Zag approach. There is a way to lose fat and still maintain a high enough BMR rate which will allow you to continue in your fat loss process.

How to use this approach:.

As you decrease the amount of calories you consume and the amount you burn off increases, body-fat percent begins to drop. So does BMR. You begin eating normally again for a brief period of time which forces BMR back to a normal level.

Think of it like this; you are walking up a flight of stairs. You go up two stairs and then down one stair and rest. Then you go up two stairs, down one stair and rest.

By using this approach you ultimately allow BMR adjustments to take place. It will be brought down to your new lower body-weight. Because of this adjustment it becomes easier to begin losing fat again-and again. If you are just trying to lose body fat, your BMR never gets a chance to adjust and your efforts to continue losing body fat will only get harder and harder. Then frustration sets in and you binge out. All your had work is gone.

Without weight training, your lost weight will be from lean tissue, not just fat. Even when using weights starvation diets will cause too much muscle loss rather than fat reduction.

If you are willing to combine the Zig-Zag approach along with weight training, moderate aerobic exercise, a careful diet and supplement program you will find that losing fat will be incredibly easy. The experience can be enjoyable and the fat loss will stick forever.
