Someone complained that my diffusing made her so ill she needed to be off work for three days which included a hospital trip. I sympathized, however, I knew her lifestyle habits were awful and that she used Clorox wipes daily. Turns out, after research, every symptom she had was from the wipes.
I voluntarily did not diffuse when she was in the office but I also felt she was making herself sick.
There are a lot of unknowns w Linda’s situation. What kind of oils, how much oil, what kind of diffuser, how long is diffuser running, what are Linda’s habits…
In one study of 86 people with alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease that causes hair to fall out, often in patches), those who massaged their scalps with lavender and other essential oils daily for 7 months experienced significant hair regrowth compared to those who massaged their scalps without the essential oils. However, there is no way to tell whether it was one or the combination of oils that was effective. On the other hand, preliminary studies also show that lavendar may be effective in treating women with hirsuitism (excessive hair growth).
I’ve recently hopped on the YL wagon. I thought I was given sound advice, as well. I began taking their vitality oils ( ingestable) and some of them I took with water. I’m now having major side effects that can only be contributed to using the oils internally and would NOT suggest doing this without seeking advice from a registered homeopath . Seriously, I’m reading all over the place how I may have ruined my kidneys and liver over the past month. I’m scared, anxious and definitely not going to continue ingesting ANY TYPE OF ESSENTIAL OIL. Inhalation is the safe route to go or dilution with a carrier to apply topically after careful read of cautions. I’m dealing with health issues that do not always get relief from my prescription drugs, OTC drugs suggested by Doctor, etc. All I wanted was some relief and pissibly the ability to live normal days. Now I’m dealing with even more issues I believe to be caused by ingesting the oils.
