Essential oils - page 2

Because it has been almost a year. I have a student who keeps a bottle in my office, with doctor's orders, for ADHD. I came in last Friday to find it broken on my desk, smelling to high heaven.... Read More

    I do not care for the smell of patchouli. That sucks.

    My sister-in-law, does not look/act like a hippie (and there is nothing wrong with hippies and or patchouli) loves patchouli. I gave her a patchouli scented deodorant, don't know if she wears it or if she has better focus.

    This is amazing

    I feel like we should have a sit-in in MrNurse's office. Who has a guitar? I'll go get my tie-dyed shirt. <Wanders off singing "The answer my friend, is blowin' in the the wind, the answer is blowin' in the wind...">

    I prefer "if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with"

    I do not feel more focused, it's smells like patchouli oil, which I hate! My office smells like a head shop. He applies it to his neck, really needs prescribed meds, but no, let's frustrate the kid and make him stink.
    Look at yourself in the mirror. I bet you LOOK more focused and "far out."

    I love patchouli !

    I vividly recall opening up my brand new copy of Madonna's "Like A Prayer" album, and inhaling the lovely scent. Beautiful!

    We're not supposed to allow anything that' is not FDA cleared here. That being said, I just decided to end the argument I was having with a parent over her child getting a lactose intolerance supplement. I figured if she could get the doc to write for it, then i'd just give it. his was after she started sneaking the tablets into her child's lunchbox. Silly mother, doesn't she know that the kids always get found out because they make a big show of taking something.
    Lactose intolerance is a real condition! More than 1 or 2 tablets should be used with a meal containing any dairy product. I've lived with this for 15 years. Give the kid the stuff to save her the pain and discomfort of gas/diarrhea.

    Nobody is denying that it's a real condition, we're just saying that parents shouldn't attempt to sneak medications into their children's lunch boxes to circumvent the rules. No licensed nurse can just "give the the kid the stuff" without a physician's order

    I thought that intolerance meant that you cannot tolerate something. Maybe she should stop giving her child Dairy.

    Maybe they want the kid to smell like patchouli to cover up the smell of pot on his clothes!

    We are starting that next year. The nurse before me accepted this small vial of belladonna pearls (its not labeled so i honestly have no idea WHAT it is) that they parents wanted us to keep for coughs. One of the other nurses in the district was asked to administer drops of an EO into a students belly button to help with gas...he's the reason for our new FDA only push lol
