My buddy and his family use them
He talked me into taking 2 drops of oregano oil on the tongue.

Donít do that

What do you want to know?

Wife uses them for everything from bathing to dietary.

I put them in our deer feed. Makes deer healthier with fewer ticks.

I use them to coat my pea gravel it puts the deer in such a stress free attitude I can shoot 4-5 arrows at them before they run off. They’re great.

I don't know anything about them except my wife has a whole box of those little bottles of stuff. She puts different ones on her neck if she has allergies/cold/whatever, and does the same for our son. He's missed one day of school in 2 years and she is rarely sick. She also puts drops in a little machine that makes mist out of it, not sure what that does but it makes the house smell good.

She puts stuff in the dogs water too. I told her if she found one to keep skeeters away that I'd buy in....

Same at my house. Mrs uses them for all kinds of stuff.

I have learned that cottonballs soaked in peppermint oil will keep mice out of the blind and cabin at the lease. It doesn't seem to upset the wildlife either.

My MIL made up a concoction for me that takes care of headaches. Put a drop on your thumb, and press it against the roof of your mouth for a few seconds. Headache gone in minutes. Works pretty darn good.


Oh - Cedar Oil will keep the skeeters away. You can get it in a spray bottle on Amazon. Works pretty darn good.

I’ve got a really bad case of neuropathy in one of my feet. My wife is into Young Living essential oils and there is one for nerve pain. It doesn’t stop the nerve pain completely but it dulls it enough that I can get some sleep. When our 3 year old daughter gets sick she say “Mommy, a oils please?”. It is cute, and it helps her too.

I dunno what they put in them, or what is to be used when something ails you, but they seem to actually work.

Essential oils are sold through multi-level marketing crap like Keep Jewelry, 31 bags, and all that other crap. MLM has figured out that women will buy **** near anything and SOME women will convince themselves they should spend even more in a guaranteed to fail attempt to sell more of the same crap they just bought.

Granted, if there were ever MLM where you could sell hunting and fishing gear, Iíd probably be neck deep in it.

Come on now Bisch. Essential oil could be as simple as scent control. It just depends on what your goal is. Oil makes my truck happy. It makes my food happy. It makes my muscles happy. It makes my bowstring happy. It makes my dogs skin happy. It makes my wife happy.

you nay sayer's can jabber all you want but some of them do work,,,, i did not believe it it at all but to appease my daughter and my wife, i let my daughter mix me a bottle of roll on snake oil , and in 10 minutes it was able to do what the doctors and their prescriptions could not,,,,,,, i had been suffering from "tennis elbow" for a couple of months wasting money at the dr office,,, her pain blend worked and it worked fast and i still doubted it was the oil,,,, a reocurrence a few months later i tried it first and it worked again...

over the last 2 years i have been willing to give them a chance because i saw how well some of them worked on my grand kids and myself!!

i am also a firm believer that the creator put everything on this earth we needed,,,, and some home remedies are actually real .... i am not saying they are fool proof but some of them proved to be effective to my disbelief ///

just a reminder to all of us,, we make paper out of trees, and pine sap has been a household cleaner for many decades, we run our cars on thick black useless gooy goop out of the ground and diamonds are made from coal,,,, so why is it hard to believe oils can and do actually work?????

Wife uses quite a few in a sideline soap-making business. Orders in quantity not through multi-level schemes. I don't know specific purported uses of particular oils other than a bug spray she made with cedar oil and some others. It works, and, in fact was tested in the jungles of Guatemala by a friend who took a 3-week trek.

Also, I know that commercial insecticides marketed by the likes of Ortho use cinnamon oil, clove oil and other oils as the active ingredients.

I have had back and neck pain every day since 1983.

My daughter sells the EO's and to appease her I tried some on my back and neck.......Instant pain relief!!!

It helps with the nephropathy in my feet but not as well.
