Melaleuca Product Stories
Upon enrolling with Melaleuca, I ordered the VITALITY PACK with my initial order, but discontinued taking it due to, what I perceived as, the expense.  I wasn’t really paying attention to my health at the time and decided to sacrifice them for cleaning/beauty supplies. Unfortunately (but in retrospect fortunately), I received a Back Up Order last month and the vitamins were included, so I started taking them again. Two days later I felt more energetic, less lethargic, well-rested and even happier! I fall asleep faster and wake easier. It is remarkable. I haven’t changed anything else in my daily routine other than taking the vitamins. The biggest difference for me is that I don’t have the 4pm slump anymore. I used to drive home to get the kids and begin the hectic routine of dinner, evening activities, baths, etc. and would feel overwhelmed to have to do all of this with such low energy.  For the past few days, I have not experienced this lethargic period at all! I am amazed. T.A.- New York

I have been taking medication for several years now for high cholesterol and very high triglycerides.  Unfortunately the prescription prices kept going up and I could not afford to keep taking the medication.  Last January I opened an account with Melaleuca and started taking the vitamins.  At my doctor visit in January my triglycerides were 400!  So I became aggressive and added the COLD WATER OMEGA-3 capsules and I switched to the VITALITY 6 HEART HEALTH Packs.  I added regular exercise, continued with a healthy diet and started drinking the ATTAIN SHAKES to lose some weight.  On my May visit to the doctor, my triglycerides were down to 325.  The LIQUID OMEGA-3’s came out so I added them also.  I went back in August and my triglycerides were down to 165! The doctor said he wanted to see them below 100, but no prescription drugs for now! How amazing our products are! Karen R.

Product Highlight
The detergents found in many common household cleaners have the potential to disrupt the health of rivers and lakes across the globe.  With so many cleaners containing so many dangerous chemicals, DIAMOND BRITE’S all-natural ingredients are a breath of fresh air. Its super-concentrated formula delivers four times the cleaning power while helping to protect your family, home and the environment.

The Problem with Dishwasher Detergents
Most leading dishwasher detergents contain two harmful ingredients- phosphates and chlorine bleach.

  • Phosphates- Phosphates are inexpensive water-softening agents, but the environment can pay a heavy price. Phosphorus is an essential element in the metabolic activities of plants and animals.  It’s found in natural waterways in the form of phosphates. Unfortunately, large amounts of phosphates also enter our lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams through the many detergents that we wash down our sinks, dishwashers, and washing machines.  Just one 45 ounce bottle of the leading automatic dishwasher detergent has enough phosphates to produce 200 pounds of algae.  Too much algae has dire effects on the environment.  The overgrowth of algae on the surface reduces the penetration of light which eventually leads to a lowering of oxygen in the water.  This results in the death of fish which disrupts the entire aquatic ecosystem.

  • Chlorine –Many dishwasher detergents use chlorine bleach as a relatively cheap way to clean dishes. But as the detergent mixes with hot water, toxic volatized chlorine fumes can be created, which may then be released into the air as a steamy mist.  Common symptoms from breathing chlorine fumes include headaches, fatigue, burning eyes, and respiratory irritation.

  • Alkaline- High alkaline formulas can burn skin, mouth and eyes.  The law requires prominent warnings and child-resistant caps on high alkaline formulas. The high alkaline in chlorine can actually etch dishes and “cloud” glassware.  DIAMOND BRITE has a pH nearly identical to water, so it doesn’t require a child resistant cap and is gentler on your dishes and dishwasher.

An Earth-Conscious Solution
Why do so many detergent manufactures use ingredients like phosphates and chlorine?  Because they are cheap and effective.  It took years of research and hundreds of formulations to discover a natural alternative, but Melaleuca has it- DIAMOND BRITE.  Instead of relying on phosphates and chlorine to clean dishes, DIAMOND BRITE uses a synergistic combination of natural water softeners, natural enzymes and a breakthrough cleansing formula called Opti-Shine to leave dishes sparkling clean.

Why isn’t the bottle bigger?
DIAMOND BRITE is super-concentrated so it can clean up to three times as many loads as the leading detergent.  This reduces the impact on recycling and landfills. So DIAMOND BRITE can not only keep your dishes cleaner, but also the environment healthier. DIAMOND BRITE carries a patent because the U.S. Patent Office recognizes it as truly unique.

Pantry Pack (2 bottles)  5018 $14.79  9pts

Awesome Alternatives
Did you know you can use…
MELAMAGIC and SOL-U-MEL to easily clean oily car or bike parts.   Mix 4 ounces MELAMAGIC and 1 capful of SOL-U-MEL in a 16 ounce bottle of water.  Generously spray the surfaces and wipe away the oil.

MELASOFT fabric softener to control static hair.  Spray some diluted MELASOFT liquid fabric softener on your hairbrush or comb.  It works wonders to calm a bad hair day.

Melaleuca- Above and Beyond
Melaleuca sells enough MELAPOWER LAUNDRY DETERGENT to do 175 million loads of laundry in a year.  MELAPOWER does not have any bleach, phosphates or harsh chemicals in it.

Melaleuca introduced SOL-U-MEL in 1986.  Back then a 16 oz. bottle cost $22.95.  In 2013 that same bottle costs $19.99!   What company do you know has actually lowered the cost of one of its most popular products!  Melaleuca is able to control their costs because they research, develop and manufacture all their own products. They do not distribute through stores and they rely completely on word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied customers for their advertising.

Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods for benefits no other supplement can match:

Good health allows you to make a living, to pursue your passions, to be there for those who need you most.
But good health depends on you.
The small choices you make every day can add up to a lifetime of health and vitality. Choices like which vitamin and mineral supplement you take.
Good health is built on proper nutrition, and it depends on you to provide it. Melaleuca takes the guesswork out of nutrition with simple packs and specialized supplements that provide the critical nutrition you need–delivered Just Like Nature® thanks to the revolutionary power of Oligo®
Melaleuca Oligo logoWhat makes Oligo so unique?
Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds (amino acids and oligofructose) to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods for benefits no other supplement can match:
  • Up to 4-times greater absorption
  • Superior antioxidant protection
  • Maximum protection against free radicals

Oligo: Powering Superior Nutrition
for enhanced vitality at every stage of life.


What does Oligo mean to your family?

Not all minerals are equal.
The mineral forms found in the earth and in traditional multivitamins (gluconates, oxides, sulfates, etc.) dissolve easily in the acidic environment of the stomach, but as they pass into the intestines where absorption takes place, they crystallize (or solidify), making them very difficult, if not impossible, for the human body to absorb—drastically reducing their benefit to the body.
Superior absorption.
Oligo was created to be Just Like Nature.® Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds (amino acids and oligofructose) to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods to maximize solubility. In fact, Oligo minerals are scientifically proven to provide up to 4 times greater absorption than the minerals in the leading brands.*
Maximum antioxidant protection.
Formulating minerals Just Like Nature® has another important benefit. Minerals in traditional supplements can trigger massive free radical activity during digestion. These free radicals can actually cancel out the benefits of antioxidants like vitamins C and E. Oligo minerals are different. Oligo protects these critical antioxidants up to 5 times better than the leading brands. It also extends that free radical protection throughout the entire body! As a result, your body gets more of the nutrition it needs most for more energy every day and a lifetime of better health.

A helping hand in a time of need.


On May 20, a deadly tornado tore through the suburbs of Oklahoma City. Picking up strength as it sped toward Moore, Okla., the twister unleashed 200 mph winds on nearly 4,000 homes, offices and other buildings across five counties, cutting a path 17 miles long and 1.3 miles wide. In just 40 minutes, it took the lives of 24 people and injured 377 others.

In the weeks since the tornado, countless inspiring stories have emerged: of people ushering neighbors and strangers alike into underground shelters, of families reuniting and of communities vowing to rebuild. In the following paragraphs, Melaleuca Marketing Executives share their experiences with the devastating Moore tornado.
Running for Their Lives
Executive Director Michael Ivery lives several miles from Moore, but his daughter Micah and granddaughter Gabriella live within blocks of the area that sustained the most damage. When Michael offered to pick them up early on May 20, Micah was confident that she and her daughter would be fine. But as the warnings became more urgent, she called Michael for help.
“I was immediately on the road to pick them up,” Michael says. “The rain was getting heavier, and as I exited the freeway onto the frontage road, the hail started coming down like something out of a movie. I got to Micah’s apartment, and that’s when the siren sounded a citywide warning that the tornado was coming our way. It was a bone-chilling sound. 
“Micah jumped into the back with Gabriella, and we took off, listening to the radio so I could navigate to safety. Just as we drove beyond Moore, we saw the tornado. We were literally running from it, and I praise God that we stayed on the ground.”
Although their apartment complex sustained significant roof damage, Micah and Gabriella were able to return home two days later.
Finding Family in the Aftermath
Moore-TornadoDirector II Angelina Patterson was with her 8-year-old son at an appointment when the tornado touched down. She had her 3-year-old daughter in tow, but her oldest son was at his high school and her foster daughter was in daycare.
“There was nothing I could do,” Angie remembers. “The tornado was heading straight toward them, but school officials weren’t letting any of the children leave school at that point. I kept calling the school and the daycare, but I couldn’t get through because the power was out.”
When the winds died down, Angie ventured onto the roads to reunite her family. Her usual 20-minute route across town was strewn with debris and clogged with traffic. At one point, she had to drive three miles in the wrong direction to find a gas station that had power.
Meanwhile, Angie asked her husband, Ronnie, to pick up their daughter from daycare; because the streets were blocked off, he had to park and walk several blocks to get there. Along the way, Ronnie helped others dig through the rubble, looking for survivors. Near a 7-Eleven® convenience store that had been ripped off its foundation, Ronnie uncovered a 4-month-old baby who had been killed with his mother, and he cradled the child’s body before paramedics took him away.
“Ronnie will never forget that—he was really shaken up,” Angie says. “And we still had to find a way to get to our oldest son. Because of the traffic and everything else, we picked him up after 10 p.m. and we finally got to a hotel around midnight. It was a crazy day.
“Our house was still standing, thank goodness, but we didn’t have power and the roads were blocked so we couldn’t get home anyway. Still, we were fortunate compared to many others. My heart goes out to everyone who lost so much.”
Helping Hands
Moore-Melaleuca-TeamAfter the tornado dissipated, countless volunteers poured in from surrounding areas to provide relief. Several Marketing Executives in Oklahoma assembled personal care kits, with products donated by Melaleuca, including MelaGel®, Clear Defense® Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer, the Melaleuca Platinum Bar™, Whitening Tooth Polish and the Melaleuca Toothbrush.
“So many people lost everything they owned,” Executive Director VIII Vicki Pember says. “We just wanted to give them a little ray of hope.”
The Marketing Executives distributed kits in the area that was most impacted. As they neared the site, they remember gasping with disbelief—images on the news hadn’t prepared them for the wreckage they witnessed with their
own eyes.
“We just couldn’t believe the devastation,” Executive Director II Barbara Burditt says. “We saw a car wrapped around a tree, houses that had been turned to debris and families who had lost everything. The people who accepted our kits just hugged and thanked us in gratitude.”
As they distributed kits, the group offered comforting words and support. They prayed with those still recovering, hugged families who miraculously survived and heard inspiring stories of sacrifice and selflessness.
“I was hoping to have a small impact on other people’s lives, but really they had a big impact on my life,” Senior Director VIII Kim Oliver says. “I’ll never forget that experience.”
In addition to being inspired by the tornado victims, the Marketing Executives were impressed by how many individuals came from across the country to volunteer.
“There are a lot of heroes in this story,” Executive Director VIII Merrill Pember says. “It’s remarkable to see people strengthening each other during such a tragedy, and we were grateful to contribute in some small way.”


Axe body wash and many others are very toxic!!!!!!

Axe Body Wash
Review: Rating 1.4/10

Rated a Highly Toxic Skin Care Product in
the Body Wash Category in the
Natural Skin Care Product Review

Cancer Proven
Reproductive Toxins
Safety Violation
Penetration Agent

Violet 2



Axe body wash is a highly toxic skin care product. This product's official name is AXE Revitalizing Shower Gel. The parent company Unilever had sales of 49.9 billion dollars in 2004. In the interests of disclosure this corporate behemoth was recently involved in a mercury scandal.

Unilever Taking the Red Pill?

The AXE brand marketed by Unilever has penetrated the public consciousness through slick marketing and packaging. Unilever claims AXE is the world's leading male grooming product because men have - like Keanu Reeves - "taken the red pill." The irony is that using this toxic product is the same as taking a poison pill - without the choice of colors!


There is nothing positive about this product according to the ingredient label. The Axe body wash does not meet any natural ingredient parameter. In fact, if you were to inject this chemical concoction into someone's bloodstream you would be locked up. I do not say this lightly, as the penetration agent
- TETRASODIUM EDTA - in this product enables it to pass into your bloodstream unhindered.

Tested on Animals?

It is not certified organic and it uses synthetic chemicals that have been tested on animals. Unilever outsource's animal testers so as not to get their hands dirty. The fact that it is not certified organic - obviously - means that there is a possibility the product contains G.M.O - genetically modified organisms - and pesticides.


The Axe body wash is a chemical soup with many of the ingredients never even tested for safety according to the C.I.R. - Cosmetic Ingredient Review. The chemicals that are certified by the C.I.R have been tested on animals.

Cancer Linkage

This product contains a very toxic ingredient - COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE which has been linked to cancer in animal tests.

Reproductive Toxicity

This product contains one ingredient - ETIDRONIC ACID - linked to reduced fertility and a reduced chance for a full term healthy pregnancy.

Penetration Enhancers

Also present are penetration enhancers: TETRASODIUM EDTA. These agents work to infiltrate the skin membrane - i.e. penetration enhancer - and in doing so may increase exposures to carcinogens.

Untested Chemicals

AXE Revitalizing Shower Gel contains 3 chemicals that have not been assessed for safety in cosmetic formulas by the C.I.R. These chemicals are: PEG-5 COCAMIDE, ETIDRONIC ACID, GLYCERIN.


My advice is this, Don't Believe The Hype or the slick marketing by Unilever. Stay away from
AXE Revitalizing Shower Gel. If you use it now I strongly urge you to throw it in the trash.

Don't fill the coffers of a mega corp that KNOWINGLY uses toxic ingredients in their so called skin care products. Vote with your wallet and maybe Unilever in time will learn not to put their customer's health at risk.

The Unilever corporation reported an operating profit of 4.2 billion dollars in 2004 and they will not suffer if you don't buy this or any of their products again. However, if you use or continue to use this product you may suffer a myriad of health effects in the long term.

Certified Organic Alternative

There are legitimate alternatives to toxic products like these. You can make your own moisturizer products using natural ingredients.

Or, if you are someone who likes the peace of mind that your natural skin care products are certified organic I would refer you to the top rating natural body wash.

I just saw this on the news that tide how now put a double lid to help detour kids

I just saw this on the news that tide how now put a double lid to help detour kids from getting into these!! Wow within minutes of biting into these kids are wheezing and several kids have been on ventilators for days after biting into one!! So sad, thank goodness melaleuca has a detergent that even if swallowed will not harm our children!!!!

CINCINNATI - Children are mistaking brightly colored laundry detergent pods as candy and the problem is not decreasing in spite of manufacturers' measures to curb harm to users.
Almost 1,200 children have been poisoned after eating laundry detergent packets like Tide Pods in the last five months, according to a new report from ABC News . That's an increase of almost 950 cases since reports first surfaced in May about children swallowing the 1-inch cubes that are meant to be dropped into a washing machine in place of liquid or powder detergent.
In May, poison control officials reported about 250 cases of young children eating the brightly colored detergent balls and becoming sick since their introduction earlier this year.
Poison control centers around the country see an average of 10 cases a day where children have eaten the laundry detergent packets, according to the ABC report.
Children have started vomiting, wheezing and gasping for air within minutes of biting into one of the packets and at least 11 children have been placed on ventilators, according to the report. No one has died after swallowing a pod.
Cincinnati-based Proctor & Gamble, which produces Tide Pods, announced in May that it would create a new double-latch lid to deter children from accessing and eating the brightly colored detergent packets. The new contained designs will be on store shelves soon, representatives said. It’s current containers are not childproof.
Also, P&G says they are making the warning label on the container in larger print.
For the mean time, poison control centers are urging parents to put pods on a very high shelf, or better yet, locked up.
