A common thread among AVers is their absolute adoration of essential oils. After all, they’re all “natural” so they should go blindly unquestioned. But I wonder, what if we applied some of the most popular AVer's concerns about vaccines directly to the products they adore.
Here’s what that might look like.
1. Read the insert
- good point. Hand it over. Oh right..... you can’t because there isn’t one.
Unlike vaccines which are highly regulated by the FDA and mandated to undergo clinical trials and post market analysis, no such requirements are mandated for essential oils. Lack of information appears to be better than honest, well regulated information under these guidelines.
2. Show me the double blind inert placebo peer reviewed gold standard studies on the safety of each and every essential oil and its individual components separate and then together.
- still waiting (Taps fingers)
3. Whaaaaat? you want me to absorb a chemical (with no ingredient list or insert to read) directly into my bloodstream?
- Skin is the largest organ system in the entire human body, and can absorb topically applied chemicals into circulating blood volume.
Learn the difference between absorption and injection!
4. The only studies done on essential oils safety or efficacy are funded directly by the manufacturers themselves, #BigEO. Here's a quote from the second largest EO website: “Unfortunately, there is no regulatory body that oversees the quality or safety of essential oils. con't
It is therefore up to us to ensure that our products are completely pure, free of adulteration, and have the desired beneficial characteristics.”
- That’s right, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander!
If we cannot trust the pharmaceutical companies to conduct adequate testing (even under the heavy scrutiny of a government appointed agency) then why on earth should we trust #BigEO to do theirs with literally nobody overseeing it?
5. Those who push #EO are only doing so because they care about the huge bonuses they’ll receive from #BigEO as kickbacks. Don’t believe me? Just sign up to become a distributor and take a look at your compensation plan.
If they were such good people and only cared about the welfare of their clients, why would they need to make any money from it? The two largest EO companies have annual revenue in the BILLIONS!
- and if we can’t trust doctors because they’ve been “maybe” paid off to shill, then why on earth should we trust distributors who have FOR SURE been paid to shill?
6. Essential oils have never been tested for their safety during pregnancy or for their long term carcinogenic effects.
- I know so because i can’t read about it in the non-existent insert -and if it isn’t in the insert, it wasn’t done!
7. What are the long term cumulative effects of all those essential oils?
- by the time a baby reaches adulthood they would be rubbed him down, diffused his air or given him by mouth over 100 different available types of essential oils.
Some of which are (gasp) blends of multiple types. This is surely going to overwhelm his little system. We need to space these out if we use them at all!
8. Before essential oils, there wasn’t all these chronic diseases. The essential oils are causing more symptoms so that you need more oils to treat them.
- before EO diffusers there were far less children with asthma. Maybe all that inhaling has damaged lung tissue.
-Huh, ever think about that? Eczema? Ever stop to think about all that crazy chemical you’re just slathering your baby’s largest body organ with in their “all natural” night time lotion? Mmmhmmm. You can’t fool me. I’m woke to this. Don’t even get me started on autism
- since the two major EO distributors surfaced in the US in the 1990s autism rates have skyrocketed. Coincidence? I think not. Correlation = causation!
9. Do you know what all of these are?
tricyclene, α-thujene, α-pinene
camphene, β-phellandrene, β-pinene, octen-3-ol, 3-octanone, myrcene, 3-carene, sabinene, p-cymene, o-cymene, limonene
eucalyptol, (E)-β-ocimene, (Z)-β-ocimene
trans-linalool oxide, β-citral,
cis-linalool oxide
trans-sabinene hydrate, linalool, cis-p-menth-2-en-1-ol, trans-pinocarveol, camphor
myrtenol, borneol, p-cymen-8-ol, lavandulol
terpinen-4-ol, sabine ketone, m-cymen-8-ol
α-terpineol, hexyl butyrate, isobornyl formate
geraniol, cumin aldehyde, carvone,
linalyl acetate, α-bisabolol, dihydrocarveol, bornyl acetate, lavendulyl acetate, verbenone
neryl acetate, β-bourbonene, α-trans-bergamotene, α-cederene, β-caryophellene
caryophyllene, α-santalene, α-cis-bergamotene, β-farnesene, germacene D
β-bisabolene, γ-cadinene,
caryophyllene oxide, spathulenol, cubenol, γ-muurolol
τ-cadinol, γ-terpinene, octen-3-yl acetate
norborneol acetate
- These are all of the chemical compounds present in just the breakdown of Lavandula anguvstifolia, the active ingredient of just one essential oil, lavender.
Let’s call them “ingredients” or maybe excipients if you like. Can you tell me the safe amount of each one of these chemicals to absorb, inhale or ingest? No? Didn’t think so., but you’re adamant that it’s ok to put it on my baby?
The bottom line is, you don’t need to be an EO expert to do your own research. I have googled, even in the scholarly article section of online search engines and I know just as much as these so called chemists who come up with these toxic potions. #doyourresearch
Do these talking points sound absurd to you? Yeah, We know.
