Citrus essential oils provide a natural antibiotic effect to cows

Experts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have performed various studies into the non-antibiotic processes to lessen harmful food-borne bacteria (pathogens) which are present in an animal’s gut.

The group of scientists include microbiologist Todd Callaway and animal scientist Jeffery Carroll (team leader) from the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) as well as John Arthington from the University of Florida.

The Agricultural Research Service is the USDA's primary in-house scientific investigation agency who aims to conduct studies which support the Department’s goals of endorsing food security as well as guaranteeing food safety at an international scale.

2012 Chinese New Year Scent

To all my reader who celebrate Chinese new year, I wish you have a prosperous and joyful year ahead.

To have a clean energy and have a positive year ahead, I use patchouli, lavender and pine blends for my room fragrance. This earthy spice blend is perfect to boost confidence same as the dragon's character. According to lunar year, the year 2012 is the year of the water dragon. It will bring luck and prosperity for all of us.

To make it happen perhaps you can make an aromatherapy soap using the scent with a dragon shape mold or perhaps use it as an everyday scent using a small vial in the necklace? Whatever it is I hope you got a good karma each and every day.

Stay healthy and God Bless You All,
