Essential Oils For Good Health / BUGGGGZZZZ
« Last post by Karlfly on April 24, 2019, 10:55:46 AM »
Looking to make less of a bug spray and more specifically MOSQUITO repellent. Nothing else bothers me really. "No see ums" and mosquitos. I know about all the basics. Lemongrass, lemon, citronella, basil, lavender, tea tree. Thinking about a carrier to put them in a spray bottle. Should I just use distilled water or would witch hazel be better?

Introduce Yourself / Houston Texas looking for ideas.
« Last post by Karlfly on April 24, 2019, 10:48:14 AM »
I tried to help my ex-wife start a natural products company because she was insanely talented at putting scents and products together. Unfortunately most artists are terrible marketers so it never went anywhere. I'm a good marketer but not an artist which is why I will be relying on y'alls help here.

The company started due to my lack of tolerance for chemical perfume smells. Now that we are divorced I would like to be able to recreate some of the products for my personal use. Maybe if there' s big enough demand start selling some. I DO have some basic knowledge as I stayed up all night helping to put things together for farmers markets and such. Just hoping to get some basic help about what is good for what and what goes with what.

Thanks, K5

Essential Oils For Animals / Fleas and itchy skin
« Last post by Karlfly on April 24, 2019, 10:33:33 AM »
My dog has a very short coat. And he was scratching before he got fleas but now that summer is here in SE Texas he's got fleas too. I have tea tree cedar wood and lavender. I am getting roman chamomile, lemongrass and peppermint. Because with the fleas come the mosquitos and I'm going to try to make something to stop my itch from the parasitic demons for myself. Any ideas about what I should use for the dog? He's only 7lbs and we like to stay organic as we can. Do I need a carrier? If I make a spray should I use witch hazel? Or just mix the oils together and rub him down? I heard putting ACV in his water helps and I know it's healthy so I do that already. Thanks for any help.

Essential Oils For Good Health / Is it safe to use juniper berry oil internally?
« Last post by Bruce Cook on April 08, 2019, 07:48:34 PM »
I learned that juniper berry was good for several different things including being high in antioxidents, helps kidneys produce more urine and a great detoxifier.

i happened to have organic juniper berry essential oil from plant therapy. i heard on a youtube i can safely use 2 drops of this in a beverage daily for the benefits. I'de like to know ya'lls opinion or knowledge on this subject.

I did experiment doing this yesterday and noticed i did have to  urinate more often, and i found myself sweating a bit. it didnt make me uncomfortable at all, but is this oil brand/type really meant to be ingested?

Essential Oils For Good Health / need advice on buying good diffuser
« Last post by Bruce Cook on April 01, 2019, 03:21:35 AM »
ok, i wanted a diffuser that would fill up my 75sq foot bedroom. i started with an "Essential slr" 110ml diffuser for $11 which was decent but wanted something more powerful, so i just bought a Victsing 150ml,  for $24 just to find out its no more powerful than the slr, if anything it puts out less than it.

what is the most powerful diffuser under or around $50? Can someone point me in the right direction? it can be any size, i prefer something at least 300ml or bigger tho.

im new into using oils, started diffusing 3 weeks ago  and love them. I have anxiety, bipolar, and adhd, and i have to tell you when im diffusing some of these oils, i dont notice any of the sideeffects of my diagnoses. I have yet to feel anxiety, mood swings, or feelings of hyper  ness when running lavender through my diffusers.

Another great perk is that i have been experiencing seizure type symptoms every night when i go to bed this past 2 months before running lavender at bedtime, and sine the very first night i started running a diffuser and lavender next to my bed on night stand, and I have not had a single seizure. i cannot find this coincidence because it was happening every single night within a couple minutes after closing my eyes, and seizures would last up to a few seconds straight at a time and would happen every few minutes and would continue for up to an hour. absolutely no seizures since running this lavender next to my bed.

you know its funny that i was influenced to try Essential oils from listening to one of my favorite youtubers condemn them in several of his videos, someone who never admitted to have tried them, but called them a scam, and placebo effect at best So i came into this a bit skeptical, but not anymore. a placebo doesnt get rid of seizures.

3 nights ago i did go to bed and forgot to turn my diffuser on, and the seizures started, and i remembered i forgot to turn it on so i did, i had one single very weak seizure a couple minutes later, then no more and none since, so i know for a fat now that this hasnt been a placebo effect. I have gone back and corrected that youtuber on every video he made about EO's.  Kinda rediculous that he condemns people for asserting things that they dont know to be fact, and there he was doing it about EO's, and admitted that he knew millions are using oils and called all delusional.

Anyways thats a short story about what brought me here. Hello to all and thanks for having me here.

Essential Oils For Other Uses / Is spruce essential oil safe for internal use?
« Last post by jachymb on June 29, 2018, 08:38:23 AM »
Hello, new here.
I would like to use spruce (Picea abies) essential oil internally. I do not intend to treat a specific condition and I am a healthy person, but I have a strong intuitive desire to do exactly this  :D However, I read that internal use of essential oils is often discouraged.  So I want to make sure it is safe. If I have Picea abies 100% essential oil, how much/how often is safe to use per os? Assuming some diluted form, of course.  I tried 8  drops in one day and felt no negative effect at all, but long term use would perhaps require caution. Also, would the part of the plant matter in this case? I would prefer leaf extract. I was unable to find any reliable source for this kind of information, could you please help? :)
