    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...?

    ....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!
