My 6 year old son is currently battling leukemia we use Castor oil packs! He gets a lot of chemo and treatment lasts 3.5 years so its important to detox often. One year into treatment and he is doing well.

Comment on Which Essential Oils Company is Best? Are Multi-Level Marketing Oils Worth It? – Part 5 by Adrienne http://wholenewmom.com/what-to-buy/which-essential-oils-company-is-best-are-multi-level-marketing-oils-worth-it-part-5/comment-page-8/#comment-328836 Thu, 25 Aug 2016 17:56:04 +0000 http://wholenewmom.com/?p=17157#comment-328836 Hello Jenny. Great question! Apparently the testing is done in other countries. The organic industry is pretty prolific now so even if a country doesn’t have it there all the time the certification companies can get there, but especially in Europe there are numerous certification companies there.

As for Neal’s Yard Remedies, they test every batch. At present they are not publishing results but I know that they have passed third party tests with flying colors and have no interest to risk their stellar 30+ year reputation with substandard essential oils.

I am happy to inquire about more details if you would like.

Did you mean that YL’s oils are adulterated or that RMOs are or that in general oils can be adulterated? Thanks!

I am talking to other companies to see if there are others that I can share more information about on my site – but I haven’t gotten to EG yet. I did look at them years ago when I started the series, however.

I was w/ YL back in the early years and then left the essential oil world until this week. Didn’t know where to start w/ all the new companies, so I’m grateful you’ve done a lot of the research for me. I’ll check out Rocky Mtn. and try to order through the link on your site.

I’m sorry you’ve received so much flak after spending so much time and $$ to try to help the rest of us. All the best

I singed up with YL in the beginning and must say that my gratitude for these oils is immense because I was nearly blind from contracting menegitis and encephalitis (viral) with unbearable pain. Healed in two weeks. That said I have watched the business model going so corporate over 20 odd years and any personal interaction has become awful….especially when they make mistakes. I am very disappointed and thus I started searching and found your articles…Thanks so much for your even handed evaluation. I have not come to a final decision yet, but will give RMO a try.

Of course you could add a preservative. Some essential oils will help with that but I don’t have the proportions to share with you. I assume you could find that online. Thanks and hope you enjoy it.

Comment on Are Essential Oils a Scam? ~ A Skeptic Looks at Thieves® Oil by Sabina http://wholenewmom.com/health-concerns/are-essential-oils-a-scam-a-skeptical-look-at-thieves-oil/comment-page-12/#comment-328595 Wed, 24 Aug 2016 17:39:19 +0000 http://wholenewmom.com/?p=11936#comment-328595 Hi, Jordan.

I have set up a YL account but do not openly sell. Never been the type to do any of the “Home Party” gags, ie Tupperware, Avon, Mary Kay, etc…. I have a good friend who was swearing by it and she gave me her rewards so I would try the starter kit even told me she would buy what I didn’t like. Considering her financial situation, I was impressed but being a “thinker” I was still contemplating. Then at Christmas, she gifted me a spiral bond book that gave all the info, (greatly due to my skeptism), on each oil and their usages.

The following Mother’s Day my husband bit the bullet and purchased the starter kit for me, still using the discount and free items my friend did not use hoping I would eventually try the oils.

WOW! I have not met an oil I didn’t like, lol.

There are a few that I absolutely am beyond sold on, such as, I use less than a drop of the peppermint-in my water, pan a way-mixed with my coconut oil for my families aches and pains, tea tree-for my allergies and thieves-for everything. The only time I actually get any of the “expensive” stuff is when it’s free. I’m a frugal!!

I have gone online and pulled recipes to make the oils myself, Lime, Lemon and Satsuma trees are what I have in my yard so that’s what I have made. WOW, even making them myself works very well. If you don’t want to spend the bucks, go to the grocery store and purchase what you like…here is my recipe

1 Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and wash and dry the limes. You need 1 lime for every cup of olive oil. Remove the zest from the limes using a zester or paring knife. I use coconut oil too but it will turn to a solid so I heat it up for 10 seconds in the microwave.
2Add the lime zest and kaffir lime leaves, if using, to the heated oil. Heat the zest and lime leaves for 10 minutes. Remove the saucepan and allow the zest and leaves to steep, covered, for 2 1/2 hours.

All that natural concentrated nutrition is awesome. Plus, since you made it yourself you know what is in it. You can also add it to a little simmer pot with some water and let the aroma refresh your house.

Hope this helped, Good luck and may God Bless and keep you safe 🙂
