New research on essential oils and stomach ulcers

Poor lab mice.

They are subject to all kinds of humiliations and injuries, all in the name of science.

The latest report is of a group of mice that were given stomach ulcers.

This was to determine whether lemongrass essential oil would help in the healing of said ulcers.

Here’s what the scientists and their mice discovered:

New Research on Essential Oils and Nicotine

New Research on Essential Oils and Nicotine

Can essential oils reduce problems caused by smoking?

A while ago, I wrote about how essential oils can help with quitting smoking.

Well, I just found a new research paper that also deals with smoking and essential oils.

This new article shows essential oils might help reduce damage to the body that’s caused by nicotine.

In other words, if you smoke but cannot quit (or don’t want to)…

Then you might be able to use aromatherapy to control and even neutralize some of the negative health effects of smoking.

Essential Oil Pioneers

Essential Oil Pioneers

New online course to turn you into a constructive member of the aromatherapy world and a beacon for reasonable essential oil use. Click to find out more.

When I started elementary school about 30 years ago, my life wasn’t quite complete.

Sure, starting school was a very big step. It made me feel like more of a human being than I was back in kindergarten.

But there was still something missing, and that was the status of “pioneer.”

You see, where I grew up (Zagreb in Croatia, in what was then Yugoslavia), all first-graders went through a ceremony in November where they would wear a little uniform and make a solemn oath to study hard and listen to their parents and be constructive members of society.

After you took the oath, you became a pioneer, which meant something back when I was six.

Here’s why I bring this up.

On Tuesday, June 27th, I’ll be kicking off a 5-week online course about essential oils.

Abstinence-Only Aromatherapy Education

Abstinence-Only Aromatherapy Education


Imagine yourself back in high school.

You’re sitting restlessly, waiting for the bell to ring so you can rush on home.

The minutes are dragging by, and this last class is the most boring — Mrs. Hoffenpot, teaching the deadly dull subject “Essential Oil Safety.”

Here she goes again with the same old line, “EOs should not be ingested, unless under the supervision of a qualified and practicing professional.”

Fortunately, the bell rings and you are finally free!

You rush home, where behind closed doors, you and your best friend pour yourselves a tall glass of water.

“Should we do it?” she asks as she takes out her little bottle of lemon essential oil.

“Well, I did hear it’s good for detoxing and weight loss,” you hear yourself say.

And the next thing you know, you’ve put a few drops of lemon oil in your water, and you’re both gulping it down and waiting to see how your bodies react.

New Sheriff Takes On Essential Oil Highway Robbers

New Sheriff Takes On Essential Oil Highway Robbers

The essential oil marketplace still has a touch of the Wild West to it.

You’re riding around safely in your stagecoach and suddenly, some highway robbers stop you and say,

“Here, buy our lavender oil. It’s very cheap and yet it’s therapeutic grade.”

Since the highway robbers are making you an offer you can’t refuse, you fork over your money.

The only problem is, the oil you got was a synthetic mix that never saw a lavender field and has potentially toxic properties.

That’s the trouble when there’s no independent body that offers third-party testing, regulation, or certification of essential oils.

Well, there might be some good news on that front, thanks a new non-profit organization, started by dr. Robert Pappas and Roxanne Benton.
