    I understand what you are saying but I am allergic to many Essential Oils. My DH is allergic to some EOs. There is no "this is the right way" when fragrances are concerned.
    You have to understand that everyone is different and that "natural" doesn't necessarily mean "good" or "best" or "safe".

    I had a shocking "aha" moment when studying botany a couple years ago - one that obliterated my guilty feelings for not being vegetarian.
    You know how trees and plants clean the air - therefore we should plant more of them? They clean the air all right - because those particle of pollution are stored in the plant! So much for clean eating!

    There's also the new revelation from science that plants/veggies produce toxins in response to being cut, torn, eaten; that includes toxins that are harmful to us if in large amounts. Science can't answer the question of how much it takes i.e., eat a bucket of chopped cabbage in a day, or eat if there's an accumulation, i.e., eat half a head of cabbage every day for a year.

    Yes and if you are especially intolerant of those substances (like salicylates) you can make yourself extremely sick by eating a “healthy” high vegetable and fruit diet.

    Everyone is different.
    Vive la différence!
