Chairman of the bored
We actually have a diffuser and a little kit filled with a dozen or so different essential oils at home that was given to us by a coworker following some surgery Mrs. Maister had. I place no stock whatsoever into any purported curative properties this offers, but I do really enjoy the nifty scents.gtpeach said:I have some oils that people have given me. I would never spend money on them, but sometimes I'll diffuse them because they smell good (I was also gifted the diffuser). I'm incredibly skeptical of them, but it's possible they have some very, very minor benefits. Some of the claimed benefits like helping with sleep or stress relief I believe are more psychosomatic than anything. But if it works for people, who am I to judge?
I had a friend that started talking about how she needed to stock up on oregano oil when the ebola outbreak was at its height. That one made me angry.
