ALERT is an all-natural, aromatherapy pick-me-up. It’s a blend of pure essential oils that help boost physical energy and jumpstart brain power. Use it anytime you want to feel awake, aware, and mentally focused – for a job interview, important meeting, final  exam, big date, or to stay sharp despite lack of sleep. Non-habit forming, ALERT is 100% safe for healthy adults and teens.

It's easy. Inside the pocket-size inhaler is a cotton spine soaked in pure essential oils. Just unscrew the cap, place the inhaler below one nostril and then the other, inhaling once or twice on each side.

Aromatherapy is an ancient healing art. It is based on the idea that illness and upset happen when unhealthy behaviors or environmental contaminants disrupt the body's natural balance. Aromatherapy uses essential oils (extracted from blossoms, leaves, barks, or roots) to restore that balance to the body and the mind.

As the name suggests, you inhale the aroma of an essential oil (or a blend of oils) to correct an occasional physical or emotional imbalance. French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefossee coined the phrase in the 1930's. He found that essential oil vapors enter the lungs when they're inhaled, and then make their way into the bloodstream. During inhalation, they also strike tiny olfactory nerve receptors inside the nose. These receptors take them directly to the limbic system, the part of the brain that controls metabolism, stress responses, and mental activity.

Yes, some do. In fact, researchers and doctors have been using aromatherapy for nearly a century. In the early 1920's, for example, Italian scientists documented the power of essential oil in destroying harmful bacteria. During the 1940's, French physician Jean Valnet successfully used essential oils to disinfect and heal war injuries. More recently, studies have shown that inhalation aromatherapy can help in the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and overeating.

ALERT contains pure essential oil of basil which should not be used in large amounts during pregnancy. If you are expecting a baby and want to use the product, be sure to check first with your doctor or midwife. Also, people with asthma and other respiratory ailments should start by using very small amounts of any essential oil. Then gradually increase if no adverse reaction occurs. Finally, children under 5 should not use aromatherapy.

Generally, essential oils do not interfere with prescription medication. But it is always wise to consult your doctor before adding any new remedy to your health regimen.
