The Myth of Oxygenation

This is another great article by Robert Tisserand debunking the “oxygenation” myth:

To believe that essential oils, because they sometimes contain oxygen, are therefore able to beneficially oxygenate tissues and stimulate the immune system shows an ignorance of basic biology, and the way in which essential oils interact with the body.

Oppose H.R. 2359: Safe Cosmetics Act of 2011

We ask that all small business owners takes the time to thoroughly read the entire bill, not just the exemptions in a vacuum, and understands all aspects of the legislation prior to supporting it. 

Please go to this page, read what it is all about and please, sign the petition. I did, will you ??

We all want safe cosmetics, but this will not help and is geared for the ‘big business’ not the small business folks.

Knowledge is power, don’t wait til it’s to late and this is a done deal.
