" If you ever decide to print the entire site on paper, you will realize that it contains more than 300 pages of data on plants, manufacturing of essential oils, their properties, and their most common traditional uses.
And I stayed away from Aromatherapy, and therapeutic uses of essential oils... My goal is not to treat disease, but to seek to preserve the environment, food quality, in order to minimize the occurrence of pollution-related diseases.
If it became more convenient and efficient to manufacture petrochemical products to reduce the imperfections of natural botanical products used for generations, it's now become obvious that these chemicals have left their mark on our environment. Nature lives in harmony, which is described by ecology, and in places, this balance has been broken.
By trying to influence nature using fast-acting strong products, we have polluted and flooded our soils with non-biodegradable materials. We have changed their organic characteristics, have impoverished, and, further, deprived them of elements that were necessary for their maintenance. This is reflected in the quality of food produced on these soils, and especially in the effects of the use of these foods in our diet.
Even the spot-on products used for treating fleas in Pets, although accepted by the US FDA and other regulatory agencies, before being wisely pulled from the market, and replaced by new ones, every couple of years, are today under scrutiny by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
At this point, it seems well advised to try to reduce the use of polluting products wherever possible. The various all natural formulations on this site have been tested extensively. I myself have used these products successfully, often surpassing the results obtained using chemicals.
It is primarily an educational website. I have spent a lot of time choosing my sources, comparing information, derived either from transcriptions of ancient methods, or from recent work of scientific authorities in the fields of phytochemistry and ethnobotany. I have given a special attention to the drafting and presentation of preparations intended for use in animals, giving you the benefit of my professional experience as a DVM.
I hope you will not hesitate to browse all the pages that concern you, and take the information you need to help preserve the planet in changing some of your habits.
Do not hesitate to email me to share your experiences, tips and expertise.
Thank you in advance. "
