True Wealth Results From Developing Your Own Product
By Stephen Bucaro
Thousands of people are trying to dupe you into thinking the best way to create a successful online
business is to sign up as an affiliate selling someone else's product or fall prey to some pyramid/mlm
scam. In the first case you can make only a small percentage of the profits. In the latter case you
get suckered out of your money.
True wealth only results from developing and marketing your own product. To develop a successful
product you have to target a specific market. Then solve a specific problem for that market. The
largest market demographic today is the baby boomers. If you are a baby boomer you know all too well
what the main problem is. They are aging and concerned about wrinkles.
Many baby boomers are subjecting themselves to plastic surgery. We can create a successful business
by developing a less radical solution to the wrinkle problem. Lets develop a product that is a rich
herbal moisturizing lotion that boosts the water-holding capacity of the skin and helps plump out
wrinkled areas. This is a very good product idea because it's a consumable. Satisfied customers will
be ordering over and over again.
Making your own herbal concoctions is really not that difficult. The first step is to spend a few
hours at an online search engine. Make-Stuff
provides a recipe for herbal moisturizing lotion using comfrey, lanolin, almond oil, and cod liver oil.
We find both comfrey leaf and comfrey root, along with plastic bottles at
[wellnaturally.com parked domain]. Lanolin and almond oil can be obtained from
Aquarius Aromatherapy n Soap.
Cod liver oil is available from Wholsale Essential oils.
Make-Stuff.com recipe for herbal moisturizing lotion:
1 tbsp of an infusion of comfrey leaves OR
1 tbsp of a decoction of comfrey roots
1 tbsp lanolin
2 tsp sweet almond oil
2 tsp water
2 tsp cod liver oil
Making your own herbal concoctions for medicinal purposes is really not that difficult. The following
ways of preparing your fresh herbs are those most commonly used in herbal medicine. Always use an enamel
or non-metallic pot.
• Infusion - this is a beverage made like tea, made by pouring boiled water over the
plants and steeping to extract the active ingredients. The normal amounts are about 1/2 to 1 ounce
of the plant to one pint of boiled water. You should let the mixture steep for five to ten minutes,
covered, and strain the infusion into a cup.
• Decoction - this method or preparation allows you to extract primarily the mineral
salts and bitter principles rather than vitamins and volatile ingredients. Bring ingredients to a boil
(about half an ounce of plant parts per cup of water), then reduce heat and simmer for up to 4 minutes.
Remove from heat and steep the mixture with the cover
on the pot for a few minutes.
Melt lanolin and almond oil in a double boiler. Add water and allow to cool. Mix in cod liver oil and
comfrey. You may want to experiment and adjust this recipe to create your own custom product.

Next design a custom trademark for your bottle's label. Place instructions on the label: "Apply gently
to face and rinse off after 5-10 minutes. Remember that herbal remedies are not one-shot wonder cures.
Their effectiveness is based largely on a gradual cure."
Then create a web site to present the product and take online orders. Now you just promote that web
site and manufacture the product to fill orders. The bucarotechelp.com Web site provides many free
articles and downloads to help you write a business plan, develop a web site and promote a web site.
This is just one example of a product you can make yourself. There are thousands of formulas, recipes,
and patterns available online for free. Choose a product that is compatible with your own special
abilities and interests.
