Stress Management

Stress Management

When I was released from the hospital last year, I had a lot of trouble getting back into my normal sleep routine. I did some research and asked my oncologist whether it would be “OKAY” for me to try CBD Oil. He said yes! So I ordered some from an herbalist friend of mine. Honestly, I didn’t give it much time to see if it helped me get balanced out because it tasted like what I imagine old “bong water” would taste like. But I recently learned about Vitalibis CBD Oil which is extracted using short bursts of heat in a patent-pending method, and no solvents. Now that I am an Ambassador with the company (meaning I sell the products from my affiliate website) I have to be very careful even sharing my personal experiences as testimony for how well the product works, because doing so might be considered making a medical claim and one of the things that helps this company stand apart, is they follow the rules for marketing dietary supplements and do not make any implied medical claims. The thing about holistic medicine is, there is no one size fits all treatment. I might do well with CBD OIl to balance out my bodily functions and feelings, someone else might like an herbal tea, or perhaps a flower remedy! I put my herbal studies on hold when I learned my cancer had spread and I am just getting back into that again, but I wanted to share an Affiliate Link for the Herbal Academy, which is where I have been studying herbs and where people can learn how to care for themselves with herbs!

Vitalibis Signature 300 CBD Oil

Vitalibis Signature 300 CBD Oil

Vitalibis full spectrum, hemp cannabidiol (CBD) oil is extracted using a patent pending extraction method which uses short bursts of heat instead of CO2 or other solvents. The result is, instead of tasting like (I imagine) old bong water tastes, it tastes like toasted pine nuts! So we don’t need any flavorings to mask the taste like other brands.

When comparing things like strength, dosage and price it is important to know exactly what is in the bottle. Our CBD Oil is not an isolate but a full spectrum oil containing beneficial elements like other phytocannabinoids, terpines, fatty acids, chlorophyll, flavonoids, etc. Each bottle has 300mg of naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD), which means the 30 ml size bottle with 30 servings per bottle, delivers 10mg of cannabidiol per dose.

Aromatics International Essential Oil Collection

Right after my hospitalization from the adverse effects of immunotherapy treatment, I walked away from my essential oil hobby. I gave my website EssentialAromatherapy away to someone I knew would care for it and evolve it to their own special place online.  I gave away all my aromatherapy books, courses, and most of my essential oils to friends who I knew would appreciate them. I think without realizing it, I was preparing not to be here today.

But I am here and I am not done fighting to survive this cancer! In the cancer community, there is an acronym NED, for the health status “No Evidence of Disease“. Well, I still have cancer tumors in my liver, so I still have stage IV cancer, but what I also have is “No Expiration Date“!  So I coined term #NED2 to symbolize that!

When I first considered joining Vitalibis as a Brand Ambassador to sell CBD Oil products, part of the reason I took the leap and jumped right in, was the fact that the company also has a small selection of curated products which include essential oils from a brand with an exceptional reputation, Aromatics International.

“All of Aromatics International’s essential oils are either certified organic, wildcrafted, or organically crafted. “

I am going to continue writing articles about CBD Oil and hemp oil products in addition to other health and wellness topics, but I feel it is important for my new #sidegig as a Vitalibis Brand Ambassador to have a separate Facebook Business Page.  Check it out – I hope you “LIKE” it!

20% Discount Plan!

A year ago this month, I was released from 8 days in the hospital. I was unable to sleep through the night, and had trouble falling asleep. Here is a screen shot from my FitBit.

Even when I was asleep, I wasn’t able to fall into a deep sleep, and it is during the deep sleep stage that the body heals. I started to research dietary supplements which might be helpful. My oncologist said “No” to melatonin. I asked about CBD Oil and he said that was fine!

I immediately contacted an herbalist friend of mine who recently started selling CBD Oil. I was confused about the laws since growing hemp was not legal in many states in the USA*, I didn’t understand how selling an extract from hemp was legal. I did a LOT of research! I’m in the process of adding some of those links to my blog. I ordered some CBD Oil but honestly, the taste was so “pot” tasting and smelling that I could not tolerate it.

So last week, read about Vitalibis full spectrum CBD Oil and learned that it is produced using a new patent pending extraction method which does not use any solvents. The result is a product that does not have that “taste” and smell that I dislike. I wanted to learn more! I contacted my friend who is an Ambassador with the company and I was so impressed with what I heard, I immediately ordered!

I chose the Vitalibis 20 for 20 Program – for a one time enrollment fee of $20, customers become an “Ambassador” and receive a 20% savings on all their personal product purchases. The company also offers free shipping on $50+ orders. This 20% discount is not just for a month, or for a year, but the $20 “membership” fee entitles customers to a 20% discount on the products forever! And there are no monthly minimums to retain your membership.

What happens is, you get your own web page to log into in the future. The product pages all display the discounted prices. It’s that simple!

And for someone like me who knows a lot of people who themselves either use CBD Oil or who are interested in trying it, all I have to do is share my website address and when these people order from my website, I earn a small commission! Most customers will choose this Ambassador program just for future discounted ordering and not for the income earning opportunity, but I like to be able to earn a little extra money from a “side gig” social sharing program.

Potential customers can of course, choose to order and pay full retail price, but as an Ambassador I can offer new customers a $10 Discount coupon off your first order [of $50 or more, everyone gets free shipping on orders $50+]! Just email and I will send you an email like the one below.
