I was in your amazing and extremely interesting Intensive at the Green Nations Gathering! After your class, I threw out my favorite Bronner's Peppermint Soap that I had been using for years. Upon arriving home, I also dispensed of all my essential oils. I never knew that the essential oil was volatile or that it could affect hormones and kidney function.
I was so grateful for that information regarding essential oils. What I'm confused about is that you recommend the use of essential oils in your book, "The New Menopausal Years, The Wise Woman Way".
Is it only certain essential oils that are dangerous? Is it just safer to stay away from all of them?
Susun does offer some suggestions in regards to the use of EO’s … Like about any strong and powerful medicine (which is what EO’s are…) they can have their place and purpose within Susun’s six steps of healing:
As you can see from the article, you start from the most nourishing and gentle ideas and work up to the most extreme… EO’s belong with the latter steps and if you’ve gone thru the others and are comfortable with it, then EO’s can come into play… The big problem is that EO’s are everywhere and people use them indiscriminately – the soaps, the candles, the body washes, the detergents, perfumes, etc. Way too much exposure …
