Buyer beware.


My husband and I recently traveled to Boston, where we took participated in a whale-watching cruise. The boat was enormous, and it took a good hour for all the passengers to embark. The entire time, the boat engine was left idling, and the wind blew the fumes from the back of the boat to the front.

It was impossible to get away from the thick toxic fumes. After breathing them for 20-30 minutes until the boat finished loading, I felt nauseated.

Then, on our return flight home a few days later, our plane's takeoff was delayed on the runway. In the process of waiting for takeoff, the pilot backed into the jet fumes then braked. And there we sat, breathing jet fumes in a closed cabin for the next 10 to 15 minutes.

I had most of my oils with me on the trip, and during our visit we had been applying the Longevity oil blend and the various anti-infectious oils such as the Thieves blend, Oregano and Thyme to our feet. We also took them internally by capsules. Nevertheless, our lungs suffered, and by the time we returned home we both had a cough we could not shake, coupled with a general lethargy. It acted like bronchitis, but it wasn't.

Each night during the lung meridian's "awake" time, we would awaken, coughing uncontrollably. Peppermint, the RC, Raven, and Longevity oil blends did not touch it.

Finally, my mom suggested that I use my last few drops of the JuvaCleanse oil blend on our feet. About 2 applications was all it took to end our cough and ease our lethargy! After that we gained energy steadily until we were able to get back to our regular schedules.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: cough — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: fatigue — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
3.Associated topics: fatigue — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
4.Associated topics: liver — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
6.Associated topics: liver — "D-limonene is a major constituent in citrus essential oil.... Recently, d-limonene has been reported to alleviate fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing and ameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
7.Associated topics: liver — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
8.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[L]avender oil inhibits immediate-type allergic reactions [anaphylaxis] by inhibition of mast cell degranulation in-vivo and in-vitro."Link
