Another case of taking matters into our own hands, eh, Possum??  or . . should I say 'possum paws'?

Hi Possum. Did you ever get to the bottom of your nose bleeds? When I read this thread, (only just now), the thing that jumped out at me was that you are or were taking Evening Primrose oil. On BTD, that is an avoid for O secretors and nonnies. Can't find it in GTD lists, and don't know what Swami says about it. If you haven't found the culprit yet, could this be it?

Can't find it in GTD lists,


When it is not neutral, is is listed under "Fats and Oils"

Quoted Text
and don't know what Swami says about it.


SWAMI is going to say something different for each individual.

It is an avoid for the most recent O Gatherer that I did, but it could be rated differently for Possom and others.

Hi snazzy - wow, didn't expect this thread to come up again Re the nose bleeds...I figured it was initially the combo of too many blood thinners - evening primrose, Vit E & fish oil - (all in one capsule), as well as occasionally garlic...
Then compounded by the heater at work having its plastic fume producing sticker still on it

I am hyper sensitive to fumes, essential oils etc (especially if heating or burning)had hay fever for over a week after exposure to lemongrass at work...but no hint of more nosebleeds for quite some months now...except for a nearly threatened one when sitting next to someone eating peanuts on a plane in September)

I don't normally use the microwave at work & just last Thursday, working at another branch, I couldn't believe it, to discover the plastic coating was still attached to their microwave over 14 months later!!! It clearly had a sign on top: "important; remove before use" & it's not like it was on a high shelf not able to be seen

With everything you'd shared with us about your work place I'm convinced that you work in the worst "health food" store ever. They don't want you to drink water cause you'll have to pee more? That's insane.

If they are burning "essential oils" or even heating them.... they are not essential oils. Essential oils are therapeutic grade oils. Those should never be burned or heated as it destroys their sesquiterpenes and other natural healing properties. What they are selling is aromatherapy oils. Those are cut with chemicals and totally give me headaches. I wouldn't touch aromatherapy oils ever! Or smell them for that matter. lol

Wow, time to look for a better health food store to work for. I'd totally hire you if you lived here.



O positive baby boy.

Aww shucks!! That would be fantastic!!! If I ever move to Canada (which I would totally love to do - but is not gonna happen in the foreseeable future) I will keep that in mind

Yeah aromatherapy is probably what they are but strangely enough the company makes both but calls these particular ones essential oils to be used in a burner??!!
Their advertising blurb says "Dolphin Clinic essential oils are certified pure quality.  We source our oils from the very finest producing regions all around the world to get the best quality therapeutic grade oils, and ensure every oil meets our strict quality requirements."

I think I am just weird with my reactions tbh... As well as being a nonnie, I am salicylate sensitive so that may explain it

I heard the boss tell a sales rep today how she liked a particular product they supplied & said (quote) "it's nice that it works & I don't have to lie to a customer about it"  
Oh My Goodness - I so couldn't & never do lie to a customer!!! We are dealing with their health here & she was a nurse???!!!  

I would so love to work somewhere I could make a real difference in ppl's lives!!! Today I had a lady in that was nursing her husband with incurable melanoma cancer & I just had to tell her about the BTD!!!!!

I was again, over exposed at work to essential oils & have had sinus problems for more than a week...Not overly serious, but a hacking cough that worsened on re-exposure (while at work) & nasal problems - blocked nose that I had to keep blowing to be able to breathe, but which would never stay clear & a bit of a drip - (causing cough) I know - sounds just like a cold but every time I was away from problems I would be fine...

I was despairing of getting back to normal (due to constant re-exposure) & was researching the effects of these oils on allergies, especially after I tried to clear my nose with eucalyptus, which made the allergy worse

I re-read something I had previously posted, that detoxing can be achieved from bathing in Epsom salts & bicarb...I then realised I had started to feel better today, after inadvertently doing an internal detox by drinking the ES & Bicarb last night

Also found this interesting article in my search...It's a bit of a worry considering the age of our shop & it's 6 years of oil burning...

Contact allergy to various essential oils used in aromatherapy was demonstrated on patch testing in a 53-year-old patient suffering from relapsing eczema resistant to therapy on various uncovered parts of the skin, in particular the scalp, neck and hands.
Sensitization was due to previous exposure to lavender, jasmine and rosewood. Laurel, eucalyptus and pomerance also produced positive tests...
A diagnosis of allergic airborne contact dermatitis was thus established. Due to persistence of the volatile essential oils in the patient's home after a year-long use of aroma lamps, complete renewal of the interior of the patient's flat was considered essential. Due to changing self-medication habits, with increasing orientation to 'natural' modes of treatment, increasing numbers of such sensitizations might be on the horizon....

so often I come back to say that food is the best medicine.. there seem to be just enough of whatever to make as healthy as can be..

Be getting all well ..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Interesting but not surprising ... the cleaner the air  (that includes clean of perfumes, sprays, oil burnings ...), the better chances we give our bodies to do the job of keeping us healthy ... moderation and balance is the key here too, a little specific sprays here and there (lavender and tea tree oils in water for hair lice for example)  should be OK though ...  Hope you are able to clear that head cold soon ...
