Yesterday I began a series in which I shared with our readers the CRITICAL  information needed to know about essential oils in order to make an educated decision as to whether or not they should be a part of your self-reliance efforts, how to properly select them, and how to use them effectively.  Unfortunately, the way the deck is stacked against Americans today, making these decisions is a lot harder than you might realize. Knowing this, I’ve been cringing a LOT lately as I’ve watched...

Should essential oils be a part of your health and wellness care supplies? Is there a big difference between a bottle of essential oils that costs $90 and a bottle that costs $12? Is there a way to determine whether or not I’m really getting a quality product? Are they safe to use without side effects? Is there a big difference between essential oils and dried herbs of the same name?     Preparedness Pro's Essential Oil Collection All Rights Reserved Copyright 2012 Preparedness Pro     The...

Food Storage Mistakes 11: Paying Too Much for Food The number one reason why people pay too much for their food is because they impulse buy. That impulse may be triggered by some slick mail campaign from one of those companies that prides itself on instilling fear, or it may be caused by a lack of planning and discipline. However, paying too much for food also happens because of a lack of education. I look at my food supplies as my own personal Wall Street—except I have a success record for...

Like many, I tend to be an emotional eater. And dog-gone-it, if I want a fried egg, I want a fried egg. And no amount of seasoning of French name-calling will sufficiently entice me to mentally switch from the envisioned savor of a fried egg to settle for an omelet made from powdered eggs. Yes, this certainly is a problem if I find myself completely out of real, honest to goodness eggs!  Powdered eggs and other egg substitutes are great for baking and such, but there’s just nothing else that...

by Kellene With a significant background in marketing, I have become convinced time and time again that just about anything—good or bad—can be promoted successfully with the right kind of marketing.  As I’ve watched the political, consumer goods, and news industries over the past year more keenly, I have realized that in some cases strategic marketing is the only reason why some celebrities, consumer products, pharmaceuticals and politicians are familiar to the general populace.  The reason I...

Hello Folks, I just wanted to take a second and let you all know about the group buy at Five Star, especially in light of the Coconut Oil article I’ve written. They’ve got a gallon of extra virgin, cold pressed on sale for less than you can get it from the manufacturer and that is even in consideration of the shipping! They also have some steep  markdowns on a couple of Shirley J products that are two of my favorites as well as the high quality Redmond RealSalt. So I thought it would definitely...

by Kellene You may be too young to know this, but a long time ago, coconut oil (and some palm oils) was in virtually everything you ate.  Your French fries were cooked in it, your mayonnaise was made with it, and it was used in many of your processed foods as well.  So what changed? How did coconut oil fall from grace in the food industry? Well, like most instances such as this, the secret behind this switch has to do with money, power, and greed. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate...

While the topic may sound a bit “ho hum” I assure you that if you’ve ever made bread—successfully or not—you will benefit from this these vital bread making tips. Last night I took a little “me time” and attended a bread making class. I love to see how other folks do things and I always hope to learn something to “sharpen my saw” along the way as well. I’m happy to say the time spent was well worth my while and a successful addition to my Mental Preparedness aspect. However, while I was...

If you’ve read my articles in the past, then you know that I usually take issue with folks who are naïve and spread their ill-informed opinions around—usually to the demise or hindrance of other’s preparedness efforts. Well, yesterday I was commenting on a couponing forum to a gal about how her addiction to brownies no longer needed to be hindered by the expiration dates on her mixes if she was properly equipped with a FoodSaver. Unfortunately, a naïve, very ill-informed person got after me...
