Feeling Good with Aromatherapy

by Pena Gaharu

Aromatherapy works by using aromas to enhance the feelings or well being of a person through the process of massaging the body, more specifically around the facial area while using essential oils, which were extracted from fruits, flowers, and herbs. Aromatherapy has been utilized down through the centuries by primarily foreign lands. The aromatic scents however stretched over into the United States, which today the oils are still used to heal the body and mind. However, controversy is present, since skeptics tend to disbelieve the notion that aromatherapy essential oils will promote energy, relax the body in mind, and heal the soul. However, reviews are posted, which the reviews claim otherwise. Who wins, who loses?

The fact is essential oils can aid as an aromatherapy solution, since for decades now people have used candles, including the scented candles to enhance moods, such as romance. In fact, candles are burnt in religious ceremonies, in windows, etc. The candles in the window typically are a welcome to the soldiers off the war, thus spiritually representing a cry to come home.

In addition, before candles were available, people would use fireplaces, brushfires, etc to set moods, including relaxing the body and mind. Now, if this remedy worked down through the years, what makes you think that the same remedies would not work today? Is it simply because someone holds a degree and claims that they do more than anybody else? Or is it because of a fear that perhaps essential oils can heal the body and mind?

The fact is essential oils along aromatherapy product lines comes from 100 percent natural sources, such as herbs, fruits, flowers, bark, etc. Now, if the natural sources are distilled into the essential oils, do not think that nature cannot provide a something that will, at most relax our body and mind?

Now, if you want to get technical we can go right down to the beginning of time and see that Adam and Eve lived off natural resources. The resources included fruits, herbs, vegetables, plants, etc. It wasn’t until we started eating meats from animal carcasses that mankind begun to suffering digestive problems, as well as other problems. Therefore, nature is our best friend, which if man leaves it alone and only adds natural ingredients, what makes you think it will not work?

Indians those nice people, who were violated at one time, had many things to teach us, which included natural remedies. Now, if people would’ve been working with these people instead of against them we may have remedies today that would heal the body and mind. In fact, many of the old timers’ remedies work better than modern medicines. In fact, to modern medicines are responsible for death, severe illnesses, etc. In addition, FDA is allowing so much, additives to our foods, specifically meats which are causing grave damage.

Enjoy a Cup: Organic Tea

by Pena Gaharu

Tea lovers all the world over will enjoy the tasteful, healthful and earth-pleasing benefits of organic tea. In choosing organic tea, the consumer will not only aid in the given benefits to the environment, but also for the working conditions for tea farmers and the consumer themselves. This article provides details of how choosing organic tea is beneficial for all.

Helping the Environment

Sources indicate that, by selecting an organic tea, consumers may be contributing to a healthier environment. Tea farmers who do not adhere to organic produce growing guidelines usually use pesticides. Organic tea farmers, however, are gentler on our environment, therefore when a consumer chooses organic tea they help by cutting back on the dangerous pesticide emissions that are used by non-organic tea-farmers and by contributing to the cut-back of excessive waste.

Promoting Better Working Conditions

Pesticides, it has been said, have shown to have incredibly harmful effects on our environment, and they have also proven possibly harmful to the people who encounter them. Those tea farmers who do not adhere to the proper organic guidelines treat themselves to the possibly devastating effects of pesticide ingestion on a regular basis.

When a consumer chooses organic tea, they are immediately promoting better working conditions for tea farmers, as those tea farmers who grow organic tea do not have to be placed in the way of harmful pesticides and, as a purchaser, organic tea buyers are thus advocating this safer practice.

Benefits for the Consumer

Studies suggest that consumers who select organic products may be more likely to maintain better health, as well. By choosing to use organic tea, consumers are making it less likely for themselves and for their families to ingest dangerous pesticides, and this is incredibly important because it has been said that the consumption of pesticides through food products is responsible for many health ailments. Enjoying organic tea is one way to ensure that you and your family members are at least that much safer from these possible problems.

Tea is a beverage that is enjoyed by people from all walks of life and from all over the globe. Consumers should recognize that, by purchasing organic tea, she or he is contributing all the more to that enjoyment, as they will not only be enjoying the tasty beverage, but will also be assisting in the possibility of a healthier life for themselves, as well as for the farmers who produce the tea, and for the environment. When selecting the white, green, black, chai, oolong or herbal tea to their liking, consumers should also check for an organic label to best enjoy their tea purchase.

Caring For Your Antique Crystal Glassware

by Pena Gaharu

Do you have some antique crystal glassware? Perhaps you inherited a few pieces from your grandmother, or maybe you’re a collector and you’ve accumulated some nice glasses and vases. Or maybe you have an older home with a gorgeous crystal chandelier in the dining room. Do you know how to care for your antique crystal glassware?

Displaying Your Antique Crystal Glassware

Whenever possible, antique crystal should be displayed in a dust-proof display case. It should be kept out of direct sunlight, and high humidity is discouraged. Many crystal pieces have glued components, and sunlight and humidity damage the glue.

Using Your Antique Crystal Glassware

It is all right to use your antique crystal glassware. It was meant to be used; however, because it is valuable and delicate, use it carefully. These are the items you save for special occasions. Use them for romantic dinners for two or special family gatherings and not for the children’s table.

Use only high quality paraffin, soy wax, or beeswax candles in antique crystal glassware candleholders. Low quality waxes can be difficult to remove.

Do not allow juice, wine, or vinegar to sit in antique crystal glassware for long periods of time. Serving wine in your crystal glasses is fine, but rinse them afterward. Acidic liquids can leach the lead out of the crystal.

Speaking of lead, if antique crystal glassware has a white powdery coating, it may be due to lead leaching out of the item. Do not use that item to drink from. Professional grinding and polishing are necessary to remove the residue.

When you use your antique crystal glassware, you must be prepared for breakage. If a broken vase or glass will send you over the edge, don’t use it. Save the item for display only.

Cleaning Your Antique Crystal Glassware

First, remove any dust. It’s best to do this by blowing it off with canned air. Don’t wipe dust away; it may have fine abrasive particles that can scratch the item.

Carefully wash antique crystal in warm soapy water. Crystal chandelier cleaner is the best product for washing, but gentle dish soap or delicates laundry detergent will work, too. Do not use any product that contains ammonia or phosphates. Wash by hand and never put crystal in the dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent and the vigorous cleaning action of dishwashers can chip, crack, or spot the item.

It’s safest to line your sinks with soft towels before washing antique crystal glassware. Some people recommend putting a rubber cap over the faucet, too, to prevent chipping if you accidentally hit a glass with the faucet.

Antique crystal glassware should be air-dried, not wiped with a cloth. Wear lint-free cotton gloves when handling the freshly washed glassware.

Display your antique crystal glassware where you can enjoy it, use it carefully and clean it gently. You’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful pieces for years, and pass them down to future generations.

Kayaking is similar to canoeing; only you have a small space to fit the lower part of the body. Kayaking requires balance, since you can flip the canoe with little effort. In words, kayaking is a sport canoe, which is light in weight and often made of fiberglass. Kayaking is in aspect for leisure time, or else competitive sports. Sometimes kayaks are made of animal skin. This type is more of the traditional models, which the Inuit boats fit one or two people, while utilizing a double-blade paddle. You can use kayaks in both travel and/or racing.

Kayaking is a sport, which if you ask questions before purchasing or adventuring on a kayak you will stay a step ahead of the sport. To help you understand more about kayaking we can consider a few details.

How do I choose a kayak?
First, realize that canoes stem from the Indian creation one hundred years earlier. Today, more than sixty producers distribute kayaks and canoes. Kayaks like vehicles have a variety of models; as well kayaks are made from a variety of materials. The questions you should consider then include:

What shape of kayak would I like best?
What size or length is idea for me?
How many people do I intend to ride in my kayak?
Do I need a one passenger seat? Do I need a two seat kayak?
How do I intend to use the kayak?
What skills do I possess to maneuver a kayak? What degree of skills do other passengers have to operate the kayak?

You can purchase smaller kayaks, which the length is around 12 feet, and up to sixteen feet in size. Keep in mind that kayaks come with paddles, which often is easier to control with the 18 feet kayaks.

Beginners, or those who have employed kayaks, but it has been a while may benefit from the fifteen to 17 feet kayaks. You can carry more than one person in the larger kayaks.

Smaller kayaks or canoes move slower than the larger kayaks. However, the rate of maneuvering the smaller kayaks rate higher than the larger kayaks. The sixteen foot kayaks or canoes are often lighter, which two people can ride comfortably. If the water conditions are safe, you can carry another person in particular kayaks.

Seventeen footers can carry three people along with your gear comfortably. The longer kayaks generally are employed in sporting events, such as races, or in recreational programs. If you want a kayak for cruising, thus the seventeen or 18 footers will suffice.

Do the kayaks have adjustable seats?
It depends on what you buy. Some kayaks may have adjustable seats, while others may have non-adjustable seats. Still, the seats maybe divided with a thigh brace. A knee brace maybe available as well.

Riding the Corners in How to Be an Ace Athlete

Peak Performance Secrets Every Aspiring Athlete Should Know)

by Pena Gaharu

If you are riding the corners in how to be an ace athlete, go on about your business, since you will ride the walls until something hits you in the head and wakes you up. Life is short. I said, life is short, and if you do not feel good now about self, what makes you think you will feel good later if you haven’t put forth the effort to move ahead. Mind over matter brings forth power to move ahead. Move your mind.

If you are riding the corners now, you will miss out on what’s really going on inside of you. The secret of athletes with aspiring minds or not, to become better, is that the athletics work hard to achieve. These people have a goal in mind with plans to back their goals. Thus, goals, plans, and action are what it takes to reach peak performance.

The goal is to reach peak performance while applying effort in a plan to achieve the mission. In other words, set your goals, make your plans, and put forth the efforts to achieve the goals and plans. Reverse that role and use the plan to work toward the goal. Learn what it takes by looking at the aim, goals, and the like while working to get it. One of the biggest problems I see in the world is that most people have no clue to the words they use. In other words, definition means nothing. We need meaning to make aims, goals, and the like. Now let’s look at aim first while moving ahead.

Aim is an intended goal, which endeavor involves self to meet want. The person will strive for what he or she wants by applying effort to achieve.

Goals back the aims. Since goals become an objective that drives the person to ambition to achieve the goal, i.e. purpose is behind the goal and aim to achieve. What we have is aspiration to reach a target when we conform, the mind to think accordingly.

Effort is an attempt to do something you put in the mind. Effort is trying to achieve what you want to happen. Effort brings forth trying and attempting while endeavoring to achieve. Not only do you take a crack at what you want to do, you put power behind the efforts while struggling through trials and errors to achieve. Notice I said struggle. This means you put forth force, power, energy, and strength to get what you want.

It’s funny that most people think that exercise is what makes them strong. The truth is, the mind is what makes the body works, and the body is what makes the mind work properly. You have to go with the mind first to make the body, work in harmony with the mind.

I am sitting here talking to myself, aren’t I? What did I say you would need to reach peak performance? What did I say would take to make you an ace athlete? If you think I am going to sit here all night telling you what it takes, and telling you the secrets of become an ace athlete, you better think again. I said, mind over matter, efforts, body and work toward your goal. Goal, did I say that? Did I say goes help you to reach your end? Did I say you have a target in mind when you set goals? Did I say behind goals is ambition, drive, hope, and desires? You know what, if you haven’t got it by now, what makes me think you will get it later. Give me some action!

Sustaining Life in how you can become an Ace Athlete

Secretes of Peak Performing Athletes

by Pena Gaharu

Athletes sustain life, since athletics work the body while adhering to a diet plan. Ace athletes often avoid harmful chemicals and substances while working toward their goals. Thus, they realize hazards lead to failure.

Ace athletes realize that their existence brings them energy and excitement. Thus, it gives them verve to get-up-and-go. Learning life and what it means to you can, help you achieve ace performance peaks. Thus, ask self, what does life mean to you? What is death verses life?

Non-exercise, diet plans: This is death, since it leads to bereavement, loss, demise, and decreases your energy, which is your life-sustaining force.

Life is exercise and diet, since it enhances your life by adding years and days to your existence. How does it work?

It works with exercise and diet, while sticking to goals and plans. People often experience lethargy when failing to exercise or diet. This brings the mind down, which leads to stupors, weariness, lassitude, tiredness, exhaustion, laziness, indolence, and sluggishness. Thus, ace athletes are aware that lack of exercise and diet will lead them to frustration, thus failing to reach their goals.

Still, ace athletes realize that exercise and diet builds staying power, strength, and so forth. Exercises endorse power, which drops exhaustion to the floor. When you exercise, it increases energy, which helps you to feel vivacious. To sustain life then, you have to keep metabolism at a level.

Metabolism is chemicals that include substances, which compose our living organisms. Metabolism is our life-sustaining chemicals that promote activity. Through reactions and interrelations, the chemicals promote living organism, which provide energy, thus sustaining life. Diet is essential, since nutrients promote metabolism. What does it take?

It takes staying power, which is the ability or drive to continue working toward goals. The staying power provides energy, which is necessary to keep forcefulness and liveliness in action. We find ability to work while applying efforts to reach the goals. Staying power brings us vigor, which helps us to move to action, while concentrating on the energy we spend to achieve a mission. How do I get staying power?

You exercise and eat right. What types of exercises should I consider? You should consider strength training, resistance workouts, endurance training, and balance overall. What type of diet should I consider? The bodies require carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, fat, calories, and the like to continue working properly, and require balance.

Setting up exercises and diet requires equilibrium. Equilibrium gives you poise, which you maintain your sense of balance. Thus, equilibrium diets and exercise promote steadfast and stability. Thus, it is a remainder, which you consider often while evaluating intake and exercise regimens. You learn to calculate and estimate the balance.

To sustain life you need balance, and effort. Effort keeps you in the front seat, while you attempt to achieve, try hard to reach your goals, and take cracks at your mission. You sweat and struggle, however as you grow to enhance life, you learn that worries, concerns and the like are a part of life that you can conquer. Your endeavors move you to venture or gamble while undertaking various tries and attempts to achieve.

Various aspects of the mind can help you to see how you can become an ace athlete. The fact is you have to set goals, plans, while applying efforts to achieve. You need determination, strength, power, and energy to strive toward your goals. Your goals is the end of a race, which you will feel life sustaining your future.

Where is your Peak in How to be an Ace Athlete?

Peak Performance Secrets Every Aspiring Athlete Should Know)

by Pena Gaharu

The questions in your mind will rob you of the answers that follow behind if you do not search deep within you. Peak performance is based on mind, rather than body. In other words, athletics put in their mind, a goal that leads or drives them to achieve their mission. Therefore, you must ask you, what is your goal? What is your determination? How do the two work, hand in hand? Do you know?

I am a firm believer in making someone think before making him or her act: let’s think and then act:

Determination: I have strength of mind to do what I want to do. I have the willpower to stand up for what I believe in and I will not fall, no matter who knocks me down. I have resolves, since I search my mind to find answers, drawing from my experiences, knowledge, intelligence, and the like, I will not fall. I have fortitude, since my purpose is to move ahead while working to better myself. I am not weak. I am strong and I will not fall.

Look at the definition and draw from it. Fortitude, first of all is strength that we draw from the mind, thus it is the staying power. Fortitude then is staying power. Hello! Definition is the strength, courage, and guts to do what you want to do. Definition brings you stamina, which works toward endurance.

If you want to be an athlete or ace in athlete, you have to train the mind to work in harmony with the body. If you fail to bring the two together, I have mercy on you. The biggest problem with people today, which includes famous sport stars, is that they fail to connect the mind with the body. They think, “Oh, I have determination,” but they fail to understand what determination means to them.

Determination means to make up your mind as to what you want to do. Determination is the process of deciding what you want to do, while coming to a closure and work steadfastly to achieve your mission. You have power.

You can sit on a weight bench all-day and think about peak performance, but until you get in your mind you are going to achieve a goal, you will never make a step to achieve the goal you have in mind. In other words, if you do not put in your mind that you want to be an ace athlete first to reach your peak performance, you will not have a start. Still, once you put in your mind that you want to be an ace athlete, you must plant plans in your mind.

Plans fall back on goals, since plans draw a diagram in your mind, thus mapping out the preparations you will take to achieve the goal. Plans give proposals that prove you an arrangement of the mind, which leads to a meaning. If you do not have a meaning, what’s the purpose? As you sketch in your mind what you want to do, you will draw on the goal, thus making it happen.

If you missed the point, what I am saying is that you have to establish a goal, plan, and work to achieve the goal while working through your plans. The life of an athlete is based on the mind. While many will tell you their failures are based on their performance, the fact is, it is a state of mind that makes them peak, or creep.

Types of Exercises in how you can become an Ace Athlete

Secrets to Peak Performance through workout

by Pena Gaharu

Various types of exercises can help you reach peak performance. It depends on your goal, i.e. do you want to ace out in athletic, or do you want to reach good health while firming, toning, and enhancing your body. Regardless of your answer, you can do exercise routines that will help you swing one way or the other.

Some of the older routines of exercises include dance and aerobics. The exercises enable you to have fun while working toward fitness. The exercises we can work with will help you to reduce stress. Before we get started however, I want you to put on a nice comfortable and fitting pair of tennis shoes to protect your ankles and other parts of the body from injury. Wearing proper attire and shoes is a strong recommendation you should always adhere to before exercising.

If you do any slide exercises, which involve the feet, you may want to take off your tennis shoes, since it will add weight. It also makes it difficult to slide. You should always start exercise routines with stretches and warm ups. Once you finish exercise, you should always perform cool down and stretch exercises again. The warms up and stretches will reduce tension, stretch the muscles elasticity, and strengthen the body, preparing for intense workout.

Stretching makes the muscles bigger and longer. Stretching draws out the body by extending the elasticity. The muscles start to elongate, which straightens the muscles, which produces flexibility. Let us stretch the body. Stretch the arms over the head and pull the body upward as you stretch. Feel the tension start to leave your body. You will notice slight pulling in the arms, and will feel the tension leave the stomach area. You might notice discomforts but this is ok. Unless you feel extensive pain, you are stretching and strengthening the body.

The bodies once you continue stretching it will soon move about with ease, since flexibility will have, been restored. After you stretch the arms and back, you can stretch the legs. Sit on the floor. Never bounce while you stretch the muscles. As you sit on the floor spread the legs as far apart as possible. You may feel pulling, but again, unless it is extensive pain, you have nothing to worry about, since the body is only adjusting to changes. Now with the legs apart, stretch to your right while cupping the hands over your foot. Hold in position a few seconds, and stretch up. Sit with the posture straight while stretching up, and make sure the arms are over the head. Now stretch to the left performing the same action you conducted on the right side of the body. I recommend you perform this stretch five times to start, and then perform the same action in between full routine.

Now move into the tuck and sit-up balance routine. Position to change your seating with the legs coming together then tuck inward with your head coming forward and the arms cupped about your calves. Your back should extend slowly backwards while holding balance. Now straighten with the legs lifted, hands cupped under the higher thigh at the back, and balance. Tuck the body inward again in the first position and then lay straight back on the floor, relax.

The stretching exercises will work you into a full routine, however if you continue the exercises you will soon feel stress relief, strength in the body, and so forth. Each time you perform the exercise you will start to feel good, the mind will start to work in harmony, and in time, you will work to peak performance.

Working Hard in How to Be an Ace Athlete

Peak Performance Secrets Every Aspiring Athlete Should Know)

by Pena Gaharu

Everyday I get up in the morning, go to work, come home, and take care of my family. When do I ever find time for myself? Let me take you into reality. What is your goal? Do you ever find time to exercise? When do I find time for self and better health?

I know scores of people with different types of backgrounds. I watch people work in schools, construction, doctor offices, and the like, and I often hear them telling me what to do as they work, but never do they tell what they tell me to do themselves. In other words, to them exercise, fitness and diet is important only for those seeking advice. Ha, ha, I think, I can laugh forever. If I will never laugh at all, because I fail to see what they are saying to me: What they are you saying is to, never think someone is doing better than you are. This is a big mistake many people make and hinders them from achieving. Most people aspiring to reach peak performance in athlete will dream about the famous football stars and so on, and say it only happens for people like them. This is not true. If you apply hard work, you too can become an ace athlete.

Look at Michael Jordon. This multiple player winner took off and won many games, until someone told him he had a disease. Once he had a disease, you stopped hearing about him. Notice I said you. The sad part is this is a peak performance, ace in the game of sports, which lost in the game of society. What a magnificent man that was turned out by media, I said media>>> While many may have their opinions of him, Michael is one of the most inspiring stars in basketball and will live on. Once you heard he had AIDS, you stopped hearing from him. My point. Did you ask him? This man continued to practice and work toward bettering his health, although he was at risk of death. In other words, stopping is only adding burden to burden. Therefore, when you start exercise, you must continue the journey to become an ace athlete.

The point is where are you heading? Michael Jordon was heading down a lost past because the media danced with him. This outstanding athlete danced with death. So what are you going to do?

I love Michael and I think he is one of the most aspiring athletics in the world. The man stood up against death and told it like it was while continuing his fight to ace out in sports. If you want inspiring and want an example, take it from Michael Jordon. This man is one of the most inspiring athletics in the world, and no one can come close to him.

Yet, what did Michael do? He applied himself to a battle against others to ace out in his career. Michael Jordon took on exercise routines that will keep in excellent performance status. He worked toward endurance, stamina, intensity, muscle, and the like, while maintaining balance.

You too can become an ace athlete if you learn to balance your diet and exercise. Even if you are not considering a career in sports, you can better your health by conforming to the ace athletic rules. The downside is many trainers fail to teach you that regimens combined with aerobics and weights will help you reach peak performance, providing balance exists. Start now!

Ace Athlete in how to be a Star

(Peak Performance Secrets Every Aspiring Athlete Should Know)

by Pena Gaharu

We can sit here all day and talk about you reaching peak performance in the goal to become an ace athlete, but until you put forth the efforts, we would have accomplished nothing. Therefore, I will go work out while you read, and we see who gets to the finish line first. Not, I have to write the article, thus the only exercise I am getting at the moment, is the weight I am loosing on my fat fingers and wrists.

The first thing you have to do is put your plans and goals in motion while working toward peak performance in fitness. Exercise and diet is essential, yet you must also stop smoking, drinking, taking drugs, and cussing if possible. I have a sense of humor, so if you want to cuss sometimes, do not worry you will not lose out on reaching your goal. While working toward peak performance you have to setup a balanced regimen of exercises. The goal is to work all parts of the body, while achieving intensity, endurance, stamina, muscle, and so forth. The first set of exercises we can start then are the upper back tactics, which can help you start building strength in your back.

Ready, set, go: First, you want to get the joint actions to work toward building the shoulders horizontal extensions. In other words, you are starting the rowing back process, which requires weights. If you do not have weights, sit on the floor bring your arms up and elbows in an I Dream of Genie style. If you have, weights place your arms and elbows in the same position. Now, blink your eyes and make a wish. Just kidding! Now, I am not sure if you have weights or not, but either way work toward the chief mover muscles, i.e. the posterior deltoid, including the latissimus dorsi, and the teres majors. You will outstretch your arms to the side with the elbows bent backwards and the forearms coming forward. Keep your legs planted on the floor. In aerobics, the action is similar to the torso lift combined with the torso twist, yet you will not twist the arms to from side to side, rather you will extend with the elbows bent to both sides.

Now you will start an exercise training technique. The technique will include sitting with your shoulders joints in alignment. If you have the axis weight machine, thus rotate the machine in the red dot alignment and work in harmony. Next, place the upper arms within the pads of movement, corresponding to the floor. In position, pull the movement pads in a backward position as far as your body will allow and hold. Return to position slowly, while starting in the same position and repeating the course of action.

As you exercise on the axis machine, keep your back planted on the seats back to avoid injury. You should also keep the head in a maintained position, as well as positioning self properly so that the upper arms will move correspondingly to the floors level.

Ok, wait, where are you going? You have more work to achieve peak performance, since all we did was strengthening your back. You have arms, legs, a mouth, thighs, waist, and so forth you also have to work on. We are not finished by any means, therefore get that body pumping. Oh shucks, I forgot. We are suppose to warm up, stretch, cool down, exercise, stretch, and cool down before starting the workout process.

Traveling to the Bahamas will take you across selected islands. Instead of going to one foreign land, you will explore many areas. Uninhibited areas are also in the Bahamas, which you would have to explore the lands to discover. Throughout the inhabited lands scores of desolate cays and islets reside. Cays are small islands, or reefs located near the sea, specifically located around the Caribbean. The deserted islands are situated between Great INAGUA and the Grand Bahamas.

Currently, there are more than 290,000 residences in the Bahamas. The predominant group is the West African descendants. West Africans were shipped over when sold into slavery, which later Britain had abolished slavery during 1800s; consequently the Africans chose to remain in the Bahamas. English settlers also settled in the Bahamas, which these people arrived from Bermuda during the 1600s. This was at the time the Englishman attempted to gain freedom of religion. In addition, few of the English settlers came from the South during the revolutionary war, which the settlers constructed and built large size plantations.

How Asthma Inhalers Work

by Pena Gaharu

What are Asthma Inhalers?
Asthma inhalers are devices which are used for treating asthma, and they are considered as having truly transformed asthma treatment. Asthma inhalers allow for both children and adults who suffer from asthma to be able to deliver the medicine that they require directly to their lungs, and there is a variety of asthma inhalers available, with the two most common being that of the metered-dose inhalers and the dry powder inhalers.

Metered-dose asthma inhalers are those which use a chemical propellant in order to push the medication out of the inhaler, and the medication itself may be released either by squeezing the canister or by that of direct inhalation. The dry powder asthma inhalers, on the other hand, are ones which don’t use that of a chemical propellant to push the medication out, but rather the medication is released by the patient inhaling more rapidly than they would with a traditional metered-dose inhaler.

These inhalers can be used to deliver that of a wide variety of different medications, with the most common being: short-acting bronchodilators, long-acting bronchodilators, corticosteroids, cromolyn or nedocromil, and corticosteroid plus long-acting bronchodilator.

Dependant upon which type of inhaler you are dealing with, either the more traditional metered-dose or the dry powder inhaler, will result in the instructions and basic working methods that you will have. For instance, with the metered-dose inhalers, and these work by including that of a pressurized canister which contains measured doses of medication inside of it, and by squeezing the top of the canister for use you will then convert the medication into a fine mist, which goes down the throat.

The dry powder inhalers, on the other hand, work by requiring the patient to place their lips on the mouthpiece and then inhale extremely rapidly, and in fact, some people find these types of inhalers easier because of the fact that hand-lung coordination is not required with the dry powder inhalers, but it is with the metered-dose inhalers.

However, one factor that is incredibly important and yet surprisingly overlooked, is the importance of using the inhalers properly. Many people find it difficult to take their asthma medication regularly, and however it should be known that even though it may be difficult, for one not to take their asthma medication regularly means that they may have more serious problems later on. If necessary, you can always consult your physician and ask them for a demonstration on how to use the inhaler properly.

The Basics on Asthma Information

by Pena Gaharu

What is Asthma?
There are many factors in regards to asthma information that must be taken into account when discussing the matter of asthma, and with so much asthma information out there, it can be hard to understand even the basics of the disease.

Asthma is a chronic disease which affects the airways of a person, and if you are a person who is asthmatic, generally the inside walls of your airways are always inflamed, and it is this inflammation which creates a heightened sensitivity to the airways, and as the airways react, they then get narrower, and then less air will be able to flow through to your lung tissue.

Asthma Information on Asthma Attacks
In regards to asthma attacks, the most important asthma information that anyone should know is that not all asthma attacks are the same. If you are diagnosed with having asthma, you need to take care of it and yourself in this regards, and this means doing such things as working closely with your doctor to learn what to do, staying away from the things that bothers or irritates your asthma, and as well you can learn how to properly monitor your asthma so that you can then be able to respond quickly to the signs of an attack.

In regards to asthma information on asthma attacks, this is incredibly important information to know, especially obviously if you are an asthmatic. Asthma attacks can occur at any time, and can range in severity quite widely, anywhere from mild to life threatening. Some of the factors that are considered to possibly trigger an asthma attack are: exertion, cold, smoke, air pollution, airway infection, and allergies.

There are also certain factors which every asthmatic should know, in order to be able to treat their asthma on a daily basis which is obviously necessary, as well as when they are experiencing an attack. These factors include that of: avoid the substances you are allergic to, such as tobacco smoke; take your prescribed preventive medicines, even if you are feeling perfectly fine; if you get a serious attack, make sure to call your doctor or an emergency service; discuss your present treatment with your doctor, and ask them any questions at all that you may have; and make sure that you are familiar with the use of a peak flow meter, and that you are using your inhaler device correctly.

A Sense of Urgency: An Asthma Cure

by Pena Gaharu

What is Asthma?
Asthma is a chronic disease and there is as of yet no asthma cure, however it can be controlled and relieved with the use of the proper medications and treatments. Asthma is so common among the population in fact, that it is estimated that there are over 17 million people living with asthma in the United States alone, and that out of these 17 million, 5 million are under the age of 18. The actual diagnosis of asthma is based on that of repetitive and careful measurements of how efficiently a particular patient can force air out of their lungs, as well as through that of a medical history examination.

Is There an Asthma Cure?
There are many available treatments that are used to control and help relieve asthma, but as for an actual asthma cure, there is unfortunately nothing as of yet. In fact, what is considered as the key to effective and long-term treatment of asthma is that of the finding of drugs and a dosage plan which is most effective and resulting in the dealing with or preventing of acute episodes.

Although there is no asthma cure, there are asthma medications which are the most common form of treatment, and most of these work by relaxing the smooth tissue and opening up the airways, thus allowing the asthma sufferer to breathe at least remotely normally again. As well, inhaled medications are more preferred over that of tablet or liquid medications, as these are able to act directly on the airway surface and airway muscles, which is where the majority of asthma problems initiate.

The most commonly used form of asthma treatment is that of beta-agonists, and when symptoms of asthma are hard to control even with these, inhaled corticosteroids are often added to the treatment regime. These corticosteroids are able to not only improve lung function, but also reduce airway obstruction over time, and examples of inhaled corticosteroids include that of: beclomethasone dipropionate, triamcinolone acetonide, and flunisolide. Although the ideal dose of these corticosteroids is actually still unknown, the common side effects are known, and this includes loss of voice and oral yeast infections.

Although there is no asthma cure as of yet, we never know what will happen in the future, and one can only hope that there will be a cure for asthma sufferers sometime in the near future.

Is my Asthma Drug a First or a Last Resort?

by Pena Gaharu

In this short article we will look at the growing use of asthma medications, specifically the drugs that are commonly prescribed and hence prevalent in the marketplace.

In addition, the viability of alternative or natural based asthma drugs, also referred to as bio-ceuticals or nutri-ceuticals, will be considered.
Webster’s Dictionary defines pharmaceutical as a “medicinal drug”. In the United States the legal status of such drugs is left to the FDA to determine. Then the doctors who prescribe them and pharmacists who issue them play their part and finally the private citizens who take the asthma drugs have to determine the ultimate efficacy.

Most asthma patients are not doctors or scientists. They are struggling consumers who try to do the right thing. In an area of such importance, you would want to do the right thing – the first time. But the proliferation of pharmaceutical asthma drugs in recent years is staggering. A partial list of generic asthma drugs follows that serve as an example to show the extent of product growth that this epidemic of asthmatic cases has spawned.

Budesonide, Beclomethasone, Flunisolide, Fluticasone, Salbutamol or Albutrerol, Salmeterol, Prednisone, Prednisolone, Theophylline and Zileutron are a small number of the products on the market. They come in every conceivable form, under numerous brand and trade names - from tablet to capsule to gel cap to solution to injection and ingestible syrups.

How it Works
In order for an asthma drug to get approved, it goes through the same rigorous testing as other mainstream pharmaceuticals. The United States Food and Drug Administration takes its job very seriously. But so do all the pharmaceutical multi-national corporations that potentially stand to make billions of dollars on a single successful new product.

Here already, before the product ever gets to market, the negotiations are underway. If the signs are promising, lab testing is pushed forward and the layers of bureaucratic requirements are waded through by hoop jumping drug company specialists - with the assistance of lobbyists and attorneys of course. And we thought it was about finding a cure or at least an effective treatment for another crippling disease.

Bio-ceuticals and Nutri-ceuticals
Bio-ceuticals are typically made from biological origin and may include powders, roots, tinctures and concoctions. Nutri-ceuticals are more in the line of vitamins, supplements and the like. Although these are not technically asthma drugs, bio-ceuticals and nutri-ceuticals do represent medicinals and reflect the interest of a growing number of health practitioners, MD’s included. The range of products in the alternative medicine arena is also soaring – driven by sincere efforts and hopes of profit alike.

It’s nice to know there are many asthma drug options; choosing wisely is the challenge for the modern consumer.

Stretching Out With Asthma Exercise

by Pena Gaharu

There is much written with regards to exercise and asthma, but efforts to find a balance is worthy of a longer discussion. Exercise for the whole society – not just people with asthma – is an area of concern and asthma exercises as part of a larger body toning plan is a great start.

Issues range from ability to do rigorous exercise to how best to strengthen the lungs. We think of the lungs as organs but if we look at them as the muscles associated with breathing, then of course regulated exercise makes sense for those with asthma. Now, diet and exercise go hand in hand so to consider asthma exercise is to look at the bigger picture – that of healthy lifestyle and coming up with a formula for successful lifelong management.

Options and Opportunities
There is ample reason for hope. Expanded options include walking and stretching as appropriate asthma exercises – allowing the system time to warm up slowly. The same holds true for cooling down time included in routines. Some forms of yoga and quiet meditation, which may seem like rather passive activities, have been found very useful in finding that balance. These days it is even possible to find a physical trainer that specializes in asthma exercises.

Establishing and maintaining a reasonable weight is essential for maximum success in dealing with asthma. Talk with your doctor to establish some working parameters. It’s not about crash courses and diet fads; it’s about finding positive things to add to the formula that helps shift the averages from fragile and at risk to stable, happy and breathing easy.

Motivational speakers would tell us to press on slowly and steadily with confidence. Find the balance and make a start with asthma exercises, knowing that vital energy gained through healthy activities will yield better working lungs and a higher quality of life in general.

Since the occurrence of asthma in modern society is on the rise, treatment plans, management theories and asthma exercises will get more and more scrutiny. As asthma research advances and new findings emerge we are sure to see pointers to improving habits associated with lifestyle. It is inevitable, so the sooner we get started the better.

A baby crawls before walking and walks before running! And yes, there are a few falls and tears along the way too. It doesn’t matter, just keep walking and success will arrive sooner than anyone thought possible!

Is an Asthma Diet Important?

by Pena Gaharu

The word ‘asthma’ means ‘panting’ in Greek. This refers to its main symptom -breathlessness. This is an ailment, which attacks the respiratory system whereby the airways constrict as a result of inflammation, causing the patient to gasp for air. Asthma is the result of an allergic reaction of the airway in two stages. The initial stage is when the airways constrict in response to certain allergens or triggers blocking the airways. And the second stage is when the reaction worsens causing inflammation, fluid retention and mucus formation.

Does an Asthma Diet Play Any Role?
Food has always been a very important factor in the overall health of a being. People say that the way you feel depends on what you eat. The asthmatic patient does not have too many restrictions in food. However, it has been observed that there are some foods that may cause as asthma attack, and/or aggravate it. An asthma diet would exclude such foods.

Some examples of food not part of an asthma diet would include curd, cucumber, vinegar, tomato sauce and foods which contain preservatives sometimes, trigger asthma. Often this is because the person is prone to a cold, and these foods enhance the effect. The good part is that once the trigger is removed, the asthma will subside to normal, unless the exposure is for a long and consistent period.

Be aware that asthma starts many times as an allergy. Hence, if you feel uncomfortable after eating anything, you should immediately make a note of it and avoid it in the future. It would be excellent if you have a small dairy where you can jot down all such things that irritate your asthma, whether this is food, smells, places and so on. In this way, sooner or later you will know exactly what is likely to bother you and you can avoid that.

The asthma diet has another advantage – once you have identified all the triggers, it makes it easier to keep your asthma under control. You would also be able to identify the exact allergy factors and possibly be treated to become immune to them. Without the triggers, any person suffering from asthma can behave as a completely normal person.

Hence, it is worth identifying and putting together your list for a complete asthma diet so you could enjoy as close to a normal life as possible.

Get to Know Your Asthma Doctor

by Pena Gaharu

If you’ve already done the research or live with an asthma patient, you probably already know that asthma is a debilitating chronic condition that impacts the body - specifically the lungs and their ability to process air flow. With air passages constricted, breathing is labored and also subject to environmental sensitivities. In certain cases, asthma can also be a fatal disease.

Naturally we look to the medical community for help with acute care and in managing chronic asthma. Choosing a good asthma doctor is a necessary first step if management efforts are to succeed.

General Practitioners vs. Asthma Doctors
Whether to stay with your family doctor or pediatrician is a personal decision. Most medical doctors have a good understanding of asthma and asthmatic symptoms. Locating a patient-friendly allergy specialist or even a pulmonologist need not be a big challenge. Your primary doctor can and should assist you in this process.

The main thing is if you have questions – ask them; if you are new to the area ask for a referral or referral list. Resource groups, yellow pages, online search engines can all assist in the process of finding a suitable asthma doctor. Even among asthma doctors there are different specialists and it might take a little time to find the right one for your situation. However, it is well worth the search.

Allergy practitioners are a great resource and are generally very competent in critical areas that impact asthma patients. Their particular niche keeps them abreast of what the current challenges are within a particular area or geographic location. And as they are familiar with environmental complications that asthma sufferers are encountering throughout the year (seasonal allergies, outbreaks of flu, pollen blooms, pollution alerts, etc), they hold a frontline position in the army of asthma doctors and practitioners.

Alternative, Holistic and Naturopathic Approaches
It used to be that if an asthma doctor was called in that was it. However, that is not so these days. A whole team of practitioners can produce very positive effects if working in harmony. Natural methods, adjustments to diet, exercise and lifestyle changes in general are looked at as a good thing now rather than restrictions or limitations on life opportunities.

If we take to heart the idea that the whole world lives on hope, then it also applies here and much is possible where human efforts are concerned. Ask you asthma doctor to come to the place where medicine and hope meet success.

The Best Methods of Asthma Control

by Pena Gaharu

Although asthma is a non-curable disease, there are certain forms of asthma control, such as medication and treatment that are available in order to at least help to relieve the symptoms and the onset of asthma attacks.

What is the Best Form of Asthma Control Available Today?
There are many different forms of asthma control that are available today, and there is one which is in fact called the asthma control test; this asthma control test is used to determine how severe your asthma condition is, which in turn will help you and your physician working together to decide which type of treatment will be best and most effective for your particular situation and personal preferences.

The most important form of control, however, in regards to asthma, is that of avoiding the triggers which cause your asthma attacks. The most common trigger is that of allergens and irritants, and there are several good ideas that you should take into consideration, in order to at least attempt to avoid these triggers as best you can. For instance, if you have an air conditioner, you should make sure that the filter is constantly clean, and in order to keep mold down, you should remember to clean your bathrooms, kitchens, and basements often.

As well, you should not allow smoking at all in your house if you are an asthmatic, and you should not have too many pets if possible, as pet dander can be a serious problem and is one of the most common explanations in regards to the triggering of asthma attacks. There are certain other factors that are considered to trigger an asthma attack, including: air pollution, dust, mold, pollen, tobacco smoke, pet dander, exercise, changes in temperature, some foods, sulfites, aspirin or ibuprofen, heartburn, sinus infections, strong emotions and stress, perfume, spray-on deodorants, and viruses – to name a few of the many.

Of course, the best method overall for asthma is that of prevention, and so taking the necessary steps in order to prevent an attack as best you can is the most intelligent and effective way to go. Even if you are on, or planning to go on, forms of asthma medication, you should still consistently stand by all of the precautionary measures, in order to avoid an attack as best as you can. Although no form of treatment for asthma is completely preventive, the best sense obviously says that using these methods will help you incredibly, as you will be able to lower the frequency and severity of your attacks.

What an Asthma Allergy is and How it can be Treated

by Pena Gaharu

What is Asthma?
Asthma is a chronic disease which is non-curable, and which affects the respiratory system of the body. With asthma, what happens is that the airways constrict and become inflamed, and are then lined with excessive amounts of mucous, which is in response usually to triggers, which are factors that irritate or even cause an asthma attack. Triggers can include anything from cold weather, weather changes, stress, emotional anxiety, pet dander, even chalk dust.

In other words, asthma is a recurring inflammatory conditioned disease which causes the airways to develop increased responsiveness to various stimuli, and is a disease which is primarily characterized by that of inflammation, increased mucous production, intermittent airway obstruction, and bronchial hyper-responsiveness.

What is an Asthma Allergy?
It is considered that an asthma allergy – as well as allergies and asthma separately – is the most prevalent of all chronic diseases, and that it affects millions of people every day. An asthma allergy basically consists of anything that causes or triggers that of an asthma attack, and it is incredibly important for all asthmatics to understand and determine what their own personal triggers are, or what their primary asthma allergy is. As well, the specific type of medical treatment which is recommended to a patient will depend on the severity of their condition, and the most common types of treatments for asthma are broadly classified as relievers, preventers, and emergency treatment.

How can an Asthma Allergy be Treated?
Again, the most effective and positive type of treatment for any type of asthma trigger or allergy is that of prevention. In other words, if you are an asthmatic, especially if your condition is severe, you must recognize and determine the factors that trigger attacks with your asthma, and then try to avoid these factors as much as possible, or desensitize yourself completely, if possible. If there is no way that you can do either of these recommendations, say you have a pet that is affecting your asthma but you don’t want to get rid of it, then the best idea is to consult your physician and ask them what you should do about the situation.

There are however also forms of relief medication available, and typically every asthmatic is required to take some form of medication on a frequent basis, even if they do not experience attacks all that often.

The Warning Signs of an Asthma Attack

by Pena Gaharu

What is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic and non-curable disease which involves the respiratory system, and which causes the airways to constrict and become inflamed. However, it is believed by some to be partially inherited, but is also considered to be due to a wide array of other factors, such as environmental, infectious, and chemical factors. Therefore, although there is no definitive cause as of yet for asthma, there are certain presumed factors both in regards to the cause of asthma as well as to the onset of asthma attacks.

What is an Asthma Attack?

There are many factors which are considered to trigger an asthma attack, as well as that of risk factors; although anyone may have an attack, it most commonly occurs in the following persons: children under the age of 5, adults in their 30s, adults over 65, and people living in urban communities. There are certain other factors as well that are considered to be involved, including: family history of asthma, personal medical history of allergies, children with a family history of asthma, children who have allergies and children who have exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke.

There are certain factors that occur during a typical asthma attack, with the most common being: the lungs and airways overreact to certain triggers causing the lining of the airways to become inflamed and swollen, tightening of the muscles that surround the airways, and an increased production of mucous; breathing becomes harder and may hurt; possible coughing; and there may also be a wheezing or whistling sound, and this is especially typical of asthma.

There are certain factors which are typically accused of causing attacks, and which any asthmatic should try their best to stay away from, and this includes that of the following: allergens, such as mold, pollen, animal protein, cockroaches, and certain foods; respiratory infections and sinusitis; irritants, such as strong perfumes, chemicals such as coal or talcum powder, air pollutants, changing weather conditions, and chemical-exposure; sensitivity to medications, such as aspirin or sulfites which are used as preservatives in foods and beverages; exercise; gastroesophageal reflux; smoke; and emotional anxiety and nervous stress.

Because this condition is not curable, it is incredibly important to take all of the proper precautionary methods that you can, in order to at least attempt and prevent attacks from coming on as best as you can.

Is Asthma Management Really Possible?

by Pena Gaharu

There is always hope – the whole world lives on hope
Asthma management is a relatively recent term encompassing methods, techniques and modalities used to deal with asthma and asthmatic symptoms. The main idea is to assist those suffering with asthma in carrying on with a normal life, or as normal a life as humans aspire towards.

So much has been written about asthma management already and as more is understood about asthma, the available knowledge base grows. In the United States, the National Asthma Council not only compiles but brings together asthma management resources from multiple sources.

Internet search engines further facilitate access to traditional and alternative asthma management techniques. The world of science has opened up new and promising air function research that looks both forward and backward in time to unlock clues to elusive solutions.

Traditional Treatments
Traditional asthma medications play a significant role in management theory. These consist of inhalers that basically treat air availability issues such as airway constriction or obstruction. Primarily anti-inflammatory, prescription drugs act on the body’s adrenal and epinephrine activators related to muscles. Whether to treat the condition daily or on occurrence is a discussion to have with one’s primary doctor or asthma specialist.

Pediatric considerations play a paramount part and require separate asthma management focus. Since philosophies and guidelines keep changing, it is best to stay abreast of medical advances. Simply put this requires maintaining more than a casual monitoring of events. Rightly so as there is nothing casual about an asthma attack.

Alternative Medicine
Modern asthma management takes alternative therapies seriously. With the recent onset of acupuncture, ayurvedic medicine and homeopathy in western society, available options for treatments are more holistic in nature and have flourished.

Each modality has its own strengths and shortcomings but they are worth investigating. Many MD’s are now working these complementary therapies into their treatment regimes for asthma patients. Asthma management has stepped into the 21st century with the addition of ancient remedies.

Action Plan
A discussion would be incomplete without considering the Action Plan – a vital and potentially life-saving element. We are all adding action plans to our lifestyles in preparation for emergencies - floods, hurricanes and other disasters. In the life of one who suffers asthmatic attacks, this is not just for peace of mind. Asthma management means knowing what to do, who to call and which medication to take.

In a nutshell, asthma management is about survival and it’s about working solutions to reach and maintain a normal life. With hope, diligence and determined effort, the asthma sufferer can live and grow, benefiting from the positive approaches modern asthma management offers.

Asthma Medicine and Medications

by Pena Gaharu

Asthma is a very serious disease, and although it is non-curable, there are still certain medicines and such that can be taken in order to help relieve it, and to attempt to relieve the frequency of attacks. The asthma medicine and medications that are available today are incredible, and with the proper asthma medicine a person who is an asthmatic can feel assured in the fact that they will not have to worry constantly about their asthma and about the possible onset of asthma attacks.

What Asthma Medicine is Available?

In regards to what types of asthma medicine is available today the most common type is that of anti-inflammatory drugs. This is considered as being the most crucial in that this type of asthma medicine prevents asthma attacks on a regular basis. As well, these drugs are able to reduce swelling and even that of mucous production in the airways, which is one of the most primary issues that asthmatics deal with.

In regards to anti-inflammatory drugs, inhaled corticosteroids is the most common and most effective type of these drugs, and these of these sorts of medication leads to that of: better asthma control, fewer symptoms and flare-ups, as well as a reduced need for hospitalization. Some of the most commonly used types of corticosteroids are: Advair, Aerobid, Azmacort, Flovent, Pulmicort, and Qvar.

Typically, all of the inhaled corticosteroids have few to no side effects, and they are safe to give to both adults and children. This is because these types of steroids are not the same as the steroids that you hear about all the time, which are called anabolic steroids. Some of the benefits that these corticosteroids produce are: a reduced frequency of asthma attacks, improved lung function, and a decreased use of beta-agonist bronchodilators.

The second most common type of medicine for asthma is that of bronchodilators, which are used to help relieve the symptoms of asthma by relaxing the muscle bands that tighten around the airways, especially during an actual asthma attack. These also help to clear mucous from the lungs, and help the person to breathe more easily. There are three main types of bronchodilator medications, which are: beta 2-agonists, anticholinergics, and theophylline.

The beta 2-agonists are considered as being the best at relieving asthma symptoms quickly, because they are able to relieve the symptoms incredibly fast, as they are able to open the airways quickly. These are also the best in regards to be able to treat sudden and severe or even new asthma symptoms.

Aromatherapy Essential Oils & Scented Oils

by Pena Gaharu

Questions of the day

You’ve probably read many articles relating to scent and essential oils, which appear from aromatherapy. Maybe what you haven’t read is articles telling you how the merchants make a decision on which oils to buy for resell. As, you may have not read such articles then you will not consider theses vendors. Why...sine deciding on how vendors choose can also assist you in making up choices on aromatherapy oils that are right for you.

How do merchants decide which scented and essential oils are best for marketing?
Merchants typically mull over flavor, medium utilized for sell, targeted varieties sold to the public, purpose intended, cost, etc.

Base idea:
Scented and essential oils, for instance the aromatherapy oils work to melt away daily stress. The fragrances succeed in relaxing the body and soul, which gives a healing aid. Aromatherapy essential oils and scented oils are organic oils that come from living plants. The therapeutic oils manage it easy for you so you can take advantage of its scents in a number of fashion.

Merchants and buyers alike tend to check and test the oils through free offers and samples. One of first and leading things that merchants and buyers bear in mind while buying scented or essential oils, apart from the fragrance is the packages. Attractive packages present substandard quality oils, which the products could sell more than the higher quality oils. In addition pricing is an essential practice of the decision making. Merchants typically hunt in the middle, lower-middle, and related sections, targeting society’s favorites. The price and package then is a demand that must meet modest requirements.

The oils do not have to be bundled in fancy package, yet the oils must draw magnetism. The demand for aromatherapy in society is rooted on price driven and high volumes of oils traded. Thus merchants must meet the demand of supplies sold and society’s likings.

Local supermarkets, all-needs stores, flyers, pharmacies, etc are just a few places that customers come frequently. Merchants may also think about targeting the upper middle segment, which they will promote the products, airing them on television or in global and local media. Merchants will also offer free samples in high-fashioned stores. Since the stores tend to sell fashion accessories for the upper middle class, merchants assume that the fragrance will be bought. The elite segments are another section where merchnats promote aromatherapy oils.
