The Freiburg Study: The findings are profound, but explaining it can be simple.


Though the full, detailed results of the Freiburg Study are available at, explaining it can be simple. As you talk to customers about the Freiburg Study, here are the key points to remember:

  1. The results are profound.
    The landmark Freiburg Study proved—for the first time ever—that nutritional supplements can have a significant impact on multiple health markers in healthy people in as little as 60 minutes.* To our knowledge, no other supplement has ever produced results like these!
  2. The formulas can only be found at Melaleuca.
    Melaleuca’s Peak Performance Pack—the focus of the Freiburg Study—contains a unique combination of six patented or proprietary nutritional supplements.
  3. Improvements were measured throughout the body.
    In healthy study participants, the Freiburg Study showed a significant reduction in:
    • Free radicals
    • Inflammation
    Reducing these two key factors resulted in substantial improvements to major health markers like cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels, and more.*
  4. The Peak Performance Pack is available in six customized packs.
    • Peak Performance Nutrition Pack
    • Heart Health
    • Bone & Joint

The Power of One


The power of one is a reality. One seed results in a single tree, shade to sit under, oxygen to breathe, and additional seeds that lead to even more trees that beautify our planet. Likewise, one person can provide encouragement or offer assistance, share new insight or needed advice, and change the course of your life for the better.

Sometimes, like a tiny seed, the initial power and influence that we can have upon each other is imperceptible. But often it is those little things that lead to setting bigger things in motion—similar to the ripple effect.

Every day you make a difference in the lives of others simply by sharing who you are and what you know. It doesn’t always require a lot of effort, but it does require awareness. And with that awareness comes power, individual power. The power to see needs, gaps, and things to improve in ourselves, in our communities, and in the world as a whole.

It can be overwhelming to consider trying to change the world. But when we focus on changing ourselves, it gets a whole lot easier. Mahatma Gandhi wisely taught, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Change starts with us, on an individual level; then spreads outward to others.

Just like you, Melaleuca has a distinctive power to influence and bring about change for good. You’ve already experienced many of the ways Melaleuca enhances lives—time freedom, residual income, and a healthier lifestyle, to name a few. As a result of those enhancements in your life, you get to focus more on improving yourself and then on lifting others!

This month, you can do exactly that with our focus on the power of one. People everywhere are looking for ways to get out of debt, have more time with their families, and lead happier, healthier, more vibrant lives. And you have a lot of the answers.

At Melaleuca, we have over 450 wellness products. Each of those products is designed to help establish a lifestyle of wellness. Imagine the good that would come of your sharing even one of those products with someone looking for more endurance, relief from pain, or a toxin-free home? The positive outcomes are endless and it only takes one to reach them—you.

For us here at Melaleuca, August is the month to really focus on the power of one. Join us in this endeavor to be the difference. As we do so together, we’ll have the opportunity to influence others for good individually, and in turn, be changed for the better.

Essential Oils and the “Therapeutic Grade” Myth


The launch of PURE™ Essential Oils at Convention 2015 in May was met with tremendous enthusiasm, and Melaleuca has been absolutely thrilled with the phenomenal customer response. Tens of thousands of customers, many of whom were already familiar with and using essential oils, are now enjoying the uncompromising purity, guaranteed quality, and aromatic excellence of PURE Essential Oils.

While the use of essential oils is commonplace for many people, others are new to the experience. It stands to reason that customers would have questions about essential oils: What are they exactly? Where do they come from? What are their benefits? How are they used? Since May, Melaleuca has fielded numerous questions like these.

One of the most common questions customers have asked, is whether or not Melaleuca’s essential oils are “therapeutic grade.” Others have heard the term “therapeutic grade” and want to know what it means.


The term “therapeutic grade” sounds technical, official, and impressive, as if it were an industry-recognized certification reserved only for the highest-quality essential oils. If that were the case, and this term was in fact used to grade essential oils, then Melaleuca PURE Essential Oils—which are 100% pure—would easily qualify for the distinction.

The problem is that the term “therapeutic grade” and another like it, “CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade,” are nothing but marketing ploys. They were made-up by essential oil companies to help sell their own products.

Differentiating one product from another is a critical aspect of marketing. However, there are times when this differentiation is a “certification” fabricated in an attempt to elevate a product as the market’s “gold standard.” This was the tactic used in 2007 to create the term “therapeutic grade.”


Prior to 2007, the term “therapeutic grade” did not exist in the essential oil market. This term is not an independent or third party endorsement of purity and quality, but a trademarked marketing term created by a company selling essential oils. This 2007 creation spurred a greater fallacy, the term “CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.” Again, this term sounds technical, implying the product has been “certified” to be pure and of therapeutic grade. But, like its predecessor, it is nothing more than a made up, trademarked phrase.

What’s more, these fabricated terms are defined by the very companies who invented them. Where there should be consistency, “therapeutic grade” seems to have different definitions. For example, some sources list as many as seven tests to determine “therapeutic grade,” while other sources list only two tests for the same “certification.”

Currently, there is no governing body that certifies essential oil quality and production, or designates a standardized grading system for essential oils. Making up terms like “therapeutic grade” and “CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade” implies that there is such a controlling entity, and Melaleuca believes that this practice is deceitful and unethical.

To put it succinctly, these terms have no real certification or quality value. They are complete myths.

That being said, Melaleuca is committed to ensuring that PURE Essential Oils are always the highest quality, purist oils available on the market. In the absence of a central governing body, we rely on two entities that provide reputable quality specifications for many essential oils: the Association Française de Normalisation (AFNOR) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In the event that there is no AFNOR or ISO standard upon which to grade our essential oils, we compare them to historical testing data from essential oils experts.
There are other terms used to describe the quality of some essential oils. These terms include “medicinal grade” and “aromatherapy grade.” Again, they do not have any actual certification value.


Until there is a government agency or other official body that certifies or “grades” essential oils, the best and easiest way to determine the purity of any oil is to look at the label on the bottle. Melaleuca’s PURE Essential Oils are labeled as 100% pure. (That should tell you all you need to know, as nothing can be purer than 100%.) Each oil is certified not to contain any impurities or synthetic ingredients.

The other thing to keep in mind when it comes to essential oils, is that purity and quality are two different things. Just because something is pure doesn’t mean it is high quality. Look at it this way: How would you like a glass of 100% pure orange juice…squeezed from unripe, sour oranges?

PURE Essential Oils are also rigorously tested to meet stringent quality specifications. They undergo a battery of seven different quality tests to ensure they are always the highest quality available:

  • Chirality testing
  • Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GCMS) testing
  • Heavy metal/pesticide/herbicide testing
  • Microbial testing
  • Optical rotation and refractive index testing
  • Organoleptic testing
  • Specific gravity testing

In addition, each PURE Essential Oil is harvested through ethical and sustainable practices and traceable to its botanical plant source. The result is a line of essential oils of the highest standards.

7 Simple Steps for Achieving Financial Freedom

The stress that comes from living a life of financial bondage can be absolutely overwhelming. Too many people live in bondage to the debts they owe.

Studies have shown that financial struggles hurt more than just your pocketbook. The stress of financial uncertainty is linked to obesity, digestive tract issues, insulin resistance, ulcers, poor nutrition, poor sleep, marital conflict, and more.

That’s why Melaleuca is such a strong proponent of total financial freedom. It provides options and resources that can improve almost every aspect of life.

Financial wellness—getting out of debt and securing your financial future—along with physical wellness, environmental wellness, and personal wellness, is part of the total wellness concept that Melaleuca teaches and encourages. Indeed, financial freedom is at the heart of Melaleuca’s mission of enhancing lives.

When people stop paying interest and start earning interest, they discover a sense of peace that they’ve never had before. That peace can be achieved by following a simple, step-by-step plan that is focused on aggressively conquering debt, carefully budgeting finances, and wisely building wealth.

If you’ve achieved total financial wellness in your own life, help others achieve what you have achieved. If you’re still living with debt, then it’s time to dump it once and for all.

The following seven simple principles will help you achieve financial wellness. Try implementing a few of them today!

  • Start An Emergency Fund. Debt that spirals out of control usually begins with an emergency. Your car breaks down or your child breaks a leg and you don’t have the means to pay for it. You’re already living paycheck to paycheck, so what do you do? You pay for it with a credit card. Then the monthly credit card bill becomes too much to pay. Avoid that nightmare and instead work over the next 90 days to establish a savings fund of $1,000. If you can save more, that’s great. That money can and should only be used to save you on a rainy day.
  • Reduce Your Expenses. Find ways to cut your spending. You’ll be surprised at how many things you pay for that you don’t really need. Using coupons, giving up cable subscriptions, buying in bulk, and carpooling to work are all easy ways to save money. You can also eat at home instead of going out— which usually comes with health benefits, too!
  • Increase Your Income. Look for ways to find extra income to eliminate your debt. If you already work fulltime, consider a side business or a family paper route to bring in extra cash. Sometimes increasing your income is as simple as asking for a raise. If you work hard at your job, you have a right to discuss compensation with your boss.
  • Power Roll Your Debt. When budgeting, compile a list of all your debts from smallest to largest. Make the minimum payments on all your debts except the smallest. Do everything you can to pay that one off as fast as possible. Once it’s paid off, you can take the money you were paying toward it and put it toward the next debt. Each time you pay off a debt, the amount of money you have to pay off the next debt will continue to grow.
  • Pay Off Your Mortgage Early. This is usually the last debt people have to pay off. If this is your only debt, don’t be fooled into paying the minimum monthly mortgage. Doing so over the course of a 30-year loan means you’ve paid an incredibly large amount toward interest. That’s money wasted. Paying your mortgage off 10, 15 or 20 years early can save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan.
  • Save And Invest Monthly. Having a plan to cover future costs like retirement and medical expenses is the only way to be truly financially free. Begin by investing 10 to 25 percent of your monthly household income. Maximize 401(k) and other low-risk retirement funds.
  • Invest Wisely and Give 10 Percent. Diversify your savings portfolio so you can smooth returns and limit losses. Then give 10 percent of your income to those in need. Doing so will transform the way you view money. It will help you appreciate more the resources you have and allow you to bless the lives of others.

As you celebrate financial freedom, we want to celebrate it with you. If you’ve cut up a credit card, started a savings fund, or paid off a nagging loan, share it on social media with our new “That’s Why I Love Wellness” poster and our official Melaleuca hashtag #whyilovewellness.
