Maleleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil)

Well, I’ve been researching out the wazoo…very technical term there… about tea tree oil and the more I read, the more fascinated I become! I am using peer-reviewed articles so this isn’t just some stuff off the internet either! These articles are from medical journals, scientific journals… and it is so amazing! I wanted to research tea tree oil before I started to use it on myself… and wanted to know why it worked for some and not for some others… I am learning all about that! I can’t wait to start writing the article that I plan to and I will post it here! You will be amazed at how much this oil can do for you and your family! Wow!


Additional Information I forgot I wanted to Post

I forgot there were some things that I wanted to post so that I don’t forget them…. I signed up to be an independent consultant for doTERRA if anyone is interested in purchasing their products…very good essential oils, beauty and spa products, supplements, etc. I have been using the facial products for about two weeks now and I like what it is doing…still working on the essential oil stuff so will have to get back about how well it is doing. If interested check  out my site – http://www.mydoterra.com/thymeinmygarden/

I am also going to create another page on this blog for writing articles, posting article links, and such. I am collecting so much information – especially about essential oils and cats – that I want to write an article myself with information I am reading about, what I am learning, and what I can find. If anyone is interested in writing an article for this page, I will also post a link for you to submit your article for review before posting. Please include all references, preferably in APA format. Happy writing!

TMI – Too Much Information!

I am overwhelmed! I have been researching essential oils for pets, especially cats, and there is so much information out there! Much of it is controversial, contradictive, or just ranting about what a business says that isn’t true. It is going to take me forever to weed through it all. To add to that, I went to B&N today and got a “few” books. One I really can’t wait to read…The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Claire Davies. Its for humans…not pets…but is still very useful. Then I have “The Cat Herbal” by Claire Nahmad, and the books I already have on essential oils to read… and still do schoolwork. Hmmmm… when will I ever get the reading I want to do…educational…done and GET my school reading done…AND get my recreational reading done… Like i said, TMI!!

Aromatherapy for Pets

I have been researching essential oils since I bought some…very expensive by the way… and wanted to know if they were safe to use around my pets…of course, after I spent all that money! Anyway, the more I research eo’s for pets the more I am worried about using them, much less using them on the animals. I know they are good for me, and many are good for my dog, Checkers, but I worry about using them around my DSH, Parker. Its gonna take a LOT of research and maybe even a class in aromatherapy for pets…but I will find out what is safe, what isn’t, and what I can do to help myself and my pets using essential oil! Another crusade! Yahoooooooo
