    Hi i believe in them 100% aswel as crystals.

    Essential oils have an immediate impact on our sense of smell, also known as "olfaction". When an essential oil is inhaled, olfactory receptor cells are stimulated and the impulse is transmitted to the emotional center of the brain, or "limbic system". Also when rubbed into areas of the body the oil is absorbed through the skin and travels to the reqiured area to be treated.

    ALL pure essential oils will say this on the bottle and ONLY come in a dark bottle. They are cheap to buy and can be brought from some chemists and most health stores.

    Some oils require being diluted in a carrier oil before use. (Another form of carrier oil is sunflower oil).

    You question is vague... Are you looking to cure an illness or just start a general conversation? If you are interested in learning more about alternative med in a general way you can read up on line or buy books. If you are looking at a specific medicine modality or looking a treat an illness you'll have to be more definitive.

    Hello Alison R,

    No one can make any claims because of the FDA.

    The only way you will find out is to go to different websites read about the product/ products and, if they have them, read the testimonials. Do some research on the company and the product/products.

    Testimonials are important. Now, if they don't have a way you can contact them to get more information, get off the site as it is not something you really want. There are many many scams and junk products out there. You want to be able to contact real live people who have experienced first hand what the product or products can do.

    Try this:

    Look at everything closely. Read the testimony.

    Vitamin C cures Scurvy.

    Vitamin B1 cures Beri Beri.

    Vitamin B3 cures Pellagra.

    Vitamins B6, B12 and/or folate cure their deficiency caused anemias.

    Iron cures iron deficiency anemia (present in 25% of the world's women of child-bearing age.

    Vitamin D cures rickets and/or ostemalacia and helps to prevent osteoporosis.

    Vitamin A prevents childhood blindness.

    Calcium and Vitamin D help to prevent osteoporosis and are beneficial in its treatment.

    Omega-3 fatty acids (e.g. fish oils) help to prevent a plethora of disorders including heart attacks, diabetes, depression, and more.

    N-acetyl Csyteine (NAC) is the treatment of choice for tylenol overdose.

    Optimum intakes of vitamins B6, B12, folate, B2 and B3 are critical for preventing DNA double strand breaks that can contribute to the process of carcinogenesis (double strand breaks are the same mechanism of action as caused radiation and chemical carcinogens).

    Zinc is a critical cofactor for Tumor Suppressor P53 the 'Guardian of the Genome'. Adequate zinc intake can help prevent carcinogenesis. (Note: more than 70% of U.S. adults consume less than the RDA for zinc and thus are at risk for disrupting the function of this critical cancer fighting protein.)

    etc. etc. etc.

    Note: NO PRESCRIPTION DRUG can do any of the things noted above!
