I read your blog on liver and kidney and was surprised to read “avoid essential oils” because they can impair liver function? Are you mistakenly meaning Frangrance oils vs plant essential oils?
I found this very odd as it very much contradicts publish research and well and naturopathic studies. Compounds in essential oils, certain ones and within reason can be very beneficial. Just wanted to ask why you might suggest otherwise?
Yes, this is quite shocking for many people to hear. Based on research that is being done essential oils destroy mitochondria in the body. Essential oils are more effective at killing bacteria in the body than antibiotics. Yes, just as drugs impair liver and kidney function essential oils do to. Essential oils are extremely concentrated and are made by extracting and concentrating the volatile oils from the plant. Why do you feel you need to use them? One drop of peppermint essential oil is equal to the amount of volatile oils you would get from 25-30 cups of peppermint tea. Does this seem safe to you? Then there is the way the plants are treated when they do harvesting for essential oils and how much plant material is used.
