    Because of their widespread use in perfumery, research has been required by the government on EOs. We know the LD50 for all of them. We know the constituent chemistry. For many of them, we have in vivo studies.
    You've got me curious sethmctenn. I didn't realize there had been in vivo work done on EO's ... care to share ?

    I was curious, too. A quick google search results in many articles.

    You could search docguide.com or medline. Thousands of articles will come up. The best journals are the Journal of Essential Oil Research (mainly constituent research), the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy Journal (fluffy but practical), and the International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy.
    It's interesting when you start wading into the research you see that the "common knowledge" that there is no high quality research on alternative medicine is simply not valid. There's a ton of it on medline

    Sounds like that company wants to get sued in the near future.

    essential oils have the ability to penetrate the walls of viruses and bacteria....so many EOs have anti-everything capabilities and can eliminate such things as MRSA....I put a few drops in a spray bottle and disinfect my work area...It's proven through research to kill different strains of "super bugs"...it's basically a blend of clove, cinnamon, and a few others. Lot less toxic than the heavy duty cleaners hospitals use.

    trying is believing.... I burned my hand on the oven door last Thanksgiving. It was a pretty large and serious burn...after immersing my hand in cold water for the pain, I tried something...I applied Silvadene cream to one half of the burn and Lavender essential oil to the other half. About 3 days later the side with the lavender healed completely leaving not a mark...the SSD side took 2 weeks to heal...it truly was a testament to "seeing is believing". I always have lavender and peppermint in a spray bottle with water in case of sunburn too

    So after seeing that the lavender-treated side was healed completely in three days, why would you not then treat the other side? Doesn't make sense that you'd hold an experiment like that on your own hand, waiting two WEEKS for healing...?

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHA what a bunch of crap!
    ....AND the new cure for the common cold?! WOW. Sales people playing on the paranoia of the general public. Akin to "please send me your account number, I want to wire money to you".

    Interesting. Don't let the FDA know about it or we'll be paying 30$ copay for eucalyptus leaves and seeking a prior auth!
