For a lot of people, roses are the epitome of love. As Valentine's Day swoops closer, lovers rush to buy bundles of these beautiful flowers. But did you know that most roses are bred for beauty, and don't give off the aroma that they should?
It's true! There are over 250 species of rose, and over 10,000 different hybrid varieties. Of these, only three are commonly used for oil extraction. But lucky for us, we get several varieties in the form of essential oils and rose absolute! Here are some ways you can use rose this Valentine's day, besides buying the bouquet.
We are continuing our "Top 10 Worst Injuries from Essential Oils" from the past year of collecting injury reports. These we have listed are the top 5 worst cases from our upcoming report, due out in February 2015. This is Part 2 of a two-part series.
Here is a short version sample of some of the adverse effects from our new Injury Report, scheduled to come out in February 2015.

This is why we believe that education is the key to safety.

I decided to play with adding essential oils to see what may work best.
Sometimes we get excited about something only to find out it can't happen after all. Ever felt that? But sometimes we come to realize we are getting something better after all. We just did.
I've used aromatherapy for 40 years for myself and my family as preventive care. Over those years, I've also used them as internal remedies when the need arose, which was usually because of the flu, viruses, or systemic infections. I do not, however, use or promote the daily use of essential oils internally for preventive care.
