  • Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) oil supports normal immune system function and is known to be elevating to the mind*.

How to Use:

Historical Information:

As individuals, we often sell ourselves short. We don't believe we have the ability within ourselves to improve our surroundings. BelieveTM oil blend is designed to help bring out the power to create and develop our beliefs, a gift that all of us inherently have.

Comments by Russell Louie

I have used Idaho Balsam Fir and BelieveTM since last June. I was suffering from depression over my mother’s death, getting laid off three times in less than one year and the loss of my career. I found that using these oils before any of the other emotional oils (e.g., InspirationTM, Magnify Your PurposeTM, AbundanceTM) for depression was the key for me.


One must believe they have the right to exist and that there is a mission and purpose for their existence before moving out of depression. So many of us receive childhood and daily messages that we don’t count in life. Society and current economic conditions tend to invalidate the needs of the individual. I found that using BelieveTM helped me validate my natural skills and talents and showed me the reason I was on this earth was to make use of those skills and talents in service to humanity. Each person has a unique set of abilities and we only must find the right outlet to blossom.


BelieveTM oil blend would be an excellent oil to use for anyone who has been laid off, starting a new job, changing careers, starting a new business or contemplating any other lifestyle change.


Idaho Balsam Fir is used for more than just sore muscles. I have found it uplifts my spirits and calms my nerves. A feeling of contentment is produced.

Videos of the Month

Instead of books, we are featuring two new videos this month by Kate Solisti-Mattelon and Patrice Mattelon: Save Your Dog! Nourish Him the Way He's Built to Eat and Save Your Cat! Nourish Her the Way She's Built to Eat:


To order, click here or call us at 303-271-1649 or 866-305-2306 toll free. Cost is $21.95 per video plus shipping.

These videos show how to prepare raw homemade diets for your dog or cat. While Optimum Choices offers a super premium, all-natural dry pet food for convenience, we recognize that the best food for your dog or cat's health is homemade raw food. These videos demonstrate creating a raw diet for your pet that is nutritionally balanced and complete, while being easy to prepare. The cat video also explains how to transition your cat gradually to the raw food diet. We are currently working on this with our own cat Connie and have just worked her up after several months to 50% raw/50% canned. Her coat is now very soft and silky—in better condition than it has ever been. She is losing fat and gaining muscle mass. We are hopeful that by feeding her a healthier diet, we can avoid the old age kidney disease that killed our previous two cats. If you look closely in the cat video, you may see Margaret in the audience.
