Alternative cigarettes have become a booming business, both online and off-line. Over the past decade an increasing amount of media attention has been given to the negative health effects, which happens to people when they continued to smoke tobacco. In response to this others have developed alternative cigarettes which can contain anything from a mixture of herbs, to some tobacco with cloves or dried leaves or any other unusual ingredient that may help individuals to gain satisfaction while quitting smoking.

If anything can be rolled up and smoked it is a high probability that it has been tried. Most of these “experiments” don’t get very far but if you have managed to catch on. The biggest selling point is that they’re supposed to be a healthier alternative. They often look exotic and also come in appealing flavors. In fact, some of the advertising implies that smoking alternative cigarettes is smarter and healthier.

Rose oil is one of the most popular essential oils. It has a rich floral fragrance conjuring up images of romance, luxury and pampering. More importantly its properties are said to be:

* Antidepressant
* Calming, Soothing, Relaxing, Restful
* Sensuous, Aphrodisiac
* Uplifting
* Balancing
* Improves confidence
* Reduces fatigue, stress and exhaustion

Rose oil is made from rose petals. As you can imagine it takes a lot of petals to produce a very small amount of oil. Estimates suggest that it may take a ton of petals to produce 300 grams of Rose Oil.

Unfortunately the real McCoy is very expensive, however you can buy the more affordable Rose Geranium (also known as Rose-French oil) which seems to work almost as well at one-tenth of the price. It contains many of the same ingredients as Rose – geraniol, linalool and citronellol – and it has similar properties and scent.

When we create a weight loss plan, we always account for the food that we eat. What about what you drink? Choices here are just as important as eating.

If you look on the back of a soda can or a bottle you’d be astounded at the amount of calories in one glass of soda. And, when buying those value size 20-ounce bottles, you probably didn’t notice that each one contains two and a half servings. So when you drink the entire bottle, you are taking in almost triple the amount of calories.

Here are some alternatives that won’t be adding hundreds of extra calories to your healthy eating plan each day. You are probably familiar with all of them. Maybe it’s time to get reacquainted.

Water is the healthiest drink you can have. It contains no calories. Most people say that it has no flavor, but depending on your region or what type of water you have, some people like the taste of some water over others. Bottle, tap, well or carbonated, water is still good for you.
