I am sure that the person who wrote this article knows nothing about essential oils, the therapeutic properties associated with them, their mechanisms of action, or methods of application. Essential oils can not be accurately measured by putting someone through make believe stress like pulling tape off skin or putting one's feet in cold water.

Appropriate application depends on the kind of stress involved, the health of the individual, & the use of the proper essential oils. They are natural compounds that offer gentle support to all parts of our bodies.

The premise of this article, it seems, is to discredit aromatherapy & how it possibly threatens
the pharmaceutical industry and it's profits.

Do not be fooled, those big corporations would lose power if the American people lost faith in the supremacy of western medicine. The industry has its motives, motives that are based around MONEY.

That is just my opinion..do your own research, with an open mind.

I agree with Natural Sundae...the big multi nationals are panicking...something effective that they cant trademark??? Oh no!!
They will do ANYTHING, anything to get us to believe plant essences are ineffective.Its all about money and power, boys and girls. Capitalism 101. As if you didn't know.
Plant products have been used since time immemorial, even the pharmaceutical industries products are mostly based on plant products...where would we be without Aspirin,(willow)Digoxin,(foxgl ove)Morphine,(poppy) vincristine,(periwinkle)?? there are too many to mention.
We know the truth. Our clients know the truth. Let them shout their lies.
We know whats good for us.

Natural Sundae, I couldn't agree with you more. I was going to make the same argument but then I saw that you had beat me to it. Aroma therapy is doing so well with the whole 'going green' conversion. I'm oh so very proud. As a matter of fact, here is my favorite website just in case whoever wrote this has a change of heart :) http://www.handsonaromatherapy.com
