Standardized Oils

April 22, 2020

QUESTION: What is the difference between standardized and regular lemon verbena?

ANSWER: We offer standardized essential oils sometimes as alternatives for the more expensive oils like Lemon Verbena and especially Melissa. Standardized means the chemical constituents have been altered in various ways. Sometimes these standardized oils are called “Nature Identical”. Sometimes they are altered with natural and chemical constituents. Standardized oils are not desirable for aromatherapy. You want the true essential oil for aromatherapy. We make it very clear in our catalog and on our labels the few we offer that are standardized. We have customers who want to fragrance potpourri and other products which are not really therapeutic and they like to save money on these standardized oils.

I, for one, prefer to not use standardized oils on my skin. Others do and they seem not to experience any negative results from this. Many different chemical fragrances are used in common body care products like hand lotion, for instance. These products are widely used by the public. Standardized essential oils may or may not include chemical additives and compared to the totally synthetic fragrances used in common hand lotions, standardized oils are still much better!!

I’m pretty much willing to try anything (except Ritalin!) at this point.

Boils

April 22, 2020

I would like to know if there is anythng that can be taken for boils, I get these awful things, and they always appear in the same areas, around the bra line under the breasts and armpits and in one spot on the panty line (groin area). I have had them looked at by the GYN. and the family physician and they have both told me that it is an infection in the blood and that some people have it and they have had me on some very strong antibiotics for it but they soon reappear. Is there anything that I can take to cure this?
