Meet Améo CBD Squares!

What are AMÉO ENTUNE CBD Oil Squares?

Full-Spectrum Hemp-Derived Dual Release Transdermal CBD Oil Squares (transdermal patch).

  • Promotes a general sense of well-being
  • Helps encourage calm, collected feelings
  • Combines CBD with key botanicals for enhanced benefits
  • Provides CBD to support normal cannabinoid function 

What are the key benefits of using ENTUNE?

  • Helps support multiple key physiological systems to promote a general sense of well-being
  • Dual delivery system provides fast and sustained distribution of CBD for 24 hours
  • Helps encourage calm, collected feelings during periods of stress or nervousness
  • Influences the endocannabinoid system for fast-acting comfort of muscles and joints
  • Helps promote restful sleep
  • Calms an overactive mind to encourage greater focus on the present
  • Aids normal immune and nervous system responses
  • CBD combined with CoQ10 helps support natural mitochondrial homeostasis to calm the nervous system
  • Cat’s claw and willow bark help to quiet and soothe the musculoskeletal system and support a normal inflammatory response and helps support immune equilibrium

What makes ENTUNE different from the rest?

One of the biggest differences is the transdermal delivery system. One of the well known challenges with CBD is the poor bio-availability when ingested. A covered transdermal application helps improve absorption of CBD. It also bypasses first metabolism in the liver, making it a more gentle option.

Transdermal absorption also provides a more sustained delivery, lasting up to 24 hours, so you get continuous benefits vs a “big hit” followed by very little impact.

In addition, ENTUNE has several other botanicals that when combined create a synergy that is more impactful than any one of the ingredients alone.

What are the key ingredients?

  • White Willow Bark Extract
  • Cat’s Claw Extract
  • Hemp CBD Oil (0.3% THC Certified)
  • Water-Soluble Hemp CBD powder (0.3 THC Certified)
  • CoQ10
  • Black Pepper Extract
  • Dermal Approved Acrylic Co-Polymer Adhesive

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

The endocannabinoid system is a group of enzymes, receptors, and molecules that help regulate myriad physiological functions. It has been called the “master regulator” of the human body. Cannabidiol (CBD) influences receptors found throughout the body that are associated with multiple cellular and physiological responses to hormones, neurotransmitters, and environmental stimulants. 

Through this interaction with cell receptors, CBD helps support the endocannabinoid system to promote calm feelings, aid normal cognitive function, encourage a positive mood, support restful sleep, and quiet everyday aches, leading to improved overall well-being. 

What is the difference between hemp oil, CBD and marijuana?

Hemp oil, CBD and marijuana all come from the Cannabis Sativa plant family. However, each of the these substances are very different from each other. Hemp oil, also called hemp seed oil, is a vegetable oil obtained by cold-pressing the seeds of the plant. CBD (cannabidiol) comes from brother plants of Cannabis Sativa that have higher CBD content and very low THC content. Marijuana comes from sister plants of Cannabis Sativa that contain higher THC content and very little CBD content. 

What is THC? Does ENTUNE contain THC?

THC is one of the dominant cannabinoids present in cannabis plants. THC is considered psychoactive and interacts with receptors in the brain that can produce a euphoric feeling or a “high”. 

ENTUNE CBD Squares may contain permissible trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%) that easily conforms with Federal regulations. The level is minuscule and insufficient to produce a “high”. CBD is non-psychoactive and does not produce the “high” associated with marijuana. 

Will ENTUNE CBD Squares produce a euphoric state or “high”?

No. CBD is non-psychoactive and does NOT produce a “high”.  

Is Zija CBD natural or synthetic?

Zija’s uses natural CBD that is extracted from industrial hemp plants. It is not synthetic. 

Will CBD affect your appetite?

Research suggests that only very large amounts (more than 25 times what is contained in ENTUNE) of CBD will affect your appetite.  

Can I use more than one ENTUNE patch at a time, or can I cut one in half?

ENTUNE CBD squares can be customized to individual needs. For smaller size users, or to use in multiple locations at once, the square can be cut in half. In addition, two or more CBD squares can be applied to the same person simultaneously if needed. 

What is the shelf-life of ENTUNE CBD Squares?

For maximum benefits, ENTUNE CBD Squares should be used within two years of their manufacture date. 

How is ENTUNE CBD extracted?

One form is extracted with carbon dioxide (Co2) and the other form is with food-grade alcohol (similar to how herbal tinctures are created). 

Where does ZIJA source its CBD?

Currently, Zija sources its CBD from organically grown industrial hemp plants in the USA and Europe.

Cracked Heel Whipped Butter!

Feet a little rough?  Or maybe you just want to keep them baby soft!  This recipe by my friend, McKenna Gordon, is awesome!  I love the fact that it has magnesium in it too.  So many people are deficient in magnesium.  Enjoy!

Need help with your oils, let me know, or click here.

unnamed-1

Cracked Heel Whipped Butter Ingredients

•¼ cup Shea Butter OR Mango Butter

•¼ cup Coconut Oil

•3 Tablespoons Beeswax

•¼ cup Magnesium Flakes + 2 Tablespoons boiling water

•7 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

•7 drops Cypress Essential Oil

•5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

•5 drops Cell Therapy Essential Oil Blend

Directions:

Scoop the magnesium flakes into a small bowl and pour 2 tablespoons of boiling water over them stirring until it dissolves. This will create a thick liquid. Set aside to cool.

Fill a small sauce pan with 2 inches of water. Then place an empty quart size mason jar inside the sauce pan. Add the coconut oil, beeswax and mango/shea butter to the mason jar and heat it on medium.

The beeswax will be the last thing to melt. When everything is melted, remove the jar from the pan and let the mixture cool to about room temp and slightly opaque. At this point, pour it into a medium sized mixing bowl.

Use a hand blender or immersion blender on medium speed and start blending the oil mixture.

Very slowly, over the course of about a minute, add the dissolved magnesium mixture to the oil mixture while continuing blending until all of the magnesium mix is added and it is well-mixed.

Add the essential oils and whip until combined.

Place in the fridge for 20 minutes and re-blend to get body butter consistency.

Fill your jar and put it on your bedside table, or store it in the fridge for longer shelf life and an amazing cooling effect.

The first three nights: Apply a thick coat and wear socks to bed. After major cracks have gone away, apply less thick and rub in like a lotion before bed, no socks necessary. For even better results, exfoliate dry feet first using a pumice or foot file, then soak your feet in hot epsom salt water, let dry and apply the butter.

The Scientific Case for Ingesting Essential Oils!

Stop the Insanity: The Scientific Case for Ingesting Essential Oils

by Dr. Scott Johnson

juice

The essential oil space has experienced tremendous growth over the last five years. This growth generated hundreds of thousands of new essential oils users that are forced to wade through the conflicting ocean of essential oil information that plagues the internet. One of the most hotly contested subjects is the ingestion of essential oils, with traditional aromatherapists bellowing the “dangers” and progressive essential oil experts championing the benefits.

One side largely relies on customary practices, whereas the progressives seek to find the answer to this divisive discussion through science. When you cut through all the rhetoric and objectively analyze the evidence, this dispute can be encapsulated in to four elements: 1) empowerment versus control, 2) potential, 3) knowledge, and 4) comfort level.

Empowerment Versus Control

Let’s start with the empowerment versus control aspect. Traditional aromatherapists seek to maintain control of an industry that has experienced rapid and dynamic change over the last decade. They seek to uphold the status quo and continue their heavy reliance on an antiquated and conservative aromatherapy paradigm established decades ago. By maintaining the status quo, they preserve their dominion and keep clients at their mercy. Of course, this traditional paradigm has merit that is valuable today, but as with Western medicine, new discoveries have enlarged our understanding of essential oils and how we can use them to reach the highest human potential.

Potential

As was mentioned in the previous paragraph, potential is a huge aspect of ingesting essential oils. Progressive essential oil experts advocate the use of all aspects of essential oils to their fullest potential—aromatic, topical, and internal. Oral administration has great advantages and is preferred in certain situations, such as when treating an infection or chronic condition. Waiting for transdermal absorption through the skin could allow an infection to overpower the individual and indeed puts the individual at great risk.

In addition, the number of bacteria in the body eclipses the number of cells, suggesting that human microbiome balance is crucial to overall wellness. It is naïve to think that topical use of essential oils will penetrate inside the stomach to influence any harmful bacteria residing there.

Another important aspect of oral administration is the metabolites (substances produced during metabolism) that are produced when essential oils are ingested. For example, one of the metabolites produced after the ingestion of limonene (found in abundance in citrus essential oils) is the anti-cancer compound perillic acid. Now, not all metabolites are good. Pulegone (found in pennyroyal and other essential oils) is metabolized to menthofuran, which is toxic to the liver and kidneys. This makes it important to understand the chemical make-up of an essential oil before ingesting it.

Knowledge

This leads us right into our third topic — knowledge. Ingesting essential oils requires a greater knowledge of essential oil composition, drug interactions, contraindications, dosage, and metabolism. However, this can all be obtained from advanced essential oil training or found in an evidence-based book. If you choose to take essential oils orally, you should seek this advanced knowledge and understanding first.

Knowledge from published studies is also telling. A review of the literature in PubMed shows that essential oils are administered orally safely and effectively in dozens of clinical studies, with burp back being the most common side-effect.

Comfort Level

Along with knowledge, an individual’s comfort level must be considered. If you are uncomfortable with ingesting essential oils, then limit your use to aromatic and topical use. These two methods still offer fantastic benefits depending on what you are striving to accomplish.

The bottom line is, the overwhelming evidence suggests that many essential oils are safe to ingest, and they produce remarkable systemic benefits that could not be achieved through other methods. It’s time to stop the insanity and endless debate over essential oil ingestion, and embrace the future of essential oils, which includes internal usage.

Be Prepared When You Travel

AMÉO LIVING SERIES: ESSENTIAL OILS FOR TRAVELING

The following is one in a series of practical Améo Essential Oil uses from healthy lifestyle expert Karen A. Jensen

Time to hit the road! Just remember that as you travel a few things can make your trip memorable in several ways. Your wellbeing might be enhanced with the use of items such as Ameo Aroma Necklace, Aerify Diffuser, Beadlets, even a cotton hanky onto which one can place oils such as Gest Calm – a terrific aid for travel tummies. Peppermint and Life Unlimited can help you keep up with vacation schedules.  Think about keeping Pure Tranquility, in your travel bags to maintain that mellow and laid-back attitude. Soothing Air can make sure the dry airplane atmosphere remains a non-factor as you travel.

Recently my husband and I traveled to India. It was an amazing trip and in order to make sure we were able to enjoy every moment, oils such as Proshield were diffused, placed on face cloths and taken internally. Ameo Hand Purifier is easy to carry and actually makes hands feel softer and more pleasant than other such products.

If your trip includes roller coasters you might consider the Cooling Mint beadlets, just place one between lip and gum then board the ride certain that your stomach stays where it belongs. The use of Muscle Rub may also be a good idea for those sporting trips, even to work into the feet when heading to the ski slopes.

Remember that any of the citrus oils – Lemon, Tangerine, Orange or Bergamot, can be added to drink bottles. Simply add the oil to the powdered SuperMix or SmartMix, work in well then add water and shake vigorously. A drop on a slice of fruit or spritzed from your 4mil sprayer onto salad can keep you functioning at top levels.

Sometimes the stresses of travel can result in blisters that make you feel awkward and uncomfortable. A combination of equal parts Black Pepper, Sweet Fennel and Copiaba can make a difference. This is also a great blend to add to your Zija Oil for dry or problematic skin. Of course AGX Skin is one of my favorites for addition to fractionated coconut oil and use in massage.
