Oh for fuxake!

If you're afraid of having an autistic or non-neurotypical kid, don't have any farking children!
If you're afraid of having a gay/lesbian kid, don't have any farking children!
If you're afraid of having a downs/developmentally delayed kid, don't have any farking children!
If you're afraid of having a trans kid, don't have any farking children!

Basically, if you're so worried about how you'd handle your progeny not fitting with the definition of what society considers "normal" that you'll turn to some unproven, radical process in order to "fix" them, DON'T HAVE ANY FARKING CHILDREN!

...you farking numpties!

Oh, geez, colloidal silver.  I'm friends with this old hippie guy who makes a living as a massage therapist, and in addition to these copper plates he uses to "focus your body's subtle energies for a mind-body balance" and this fanny pack full of little vials of essential oils that he carries around to cure all ills, he also loves to make and hawk his own bottles of colloidal silver.  I once made the mistake of asking him why he makes the colloidal silver at home himself, and he talked my ear off for over an hour about how you can't trust what you can't read on the internet about the purity of things, while simultaneously directing me to online sources for where he gets his mystic knowledge.  He's a little wacky and probably misguided, but he's kind and gentle and genuinely cares about helping people, so I like the guy even if he seems a little nuts.

At least essential oils have some uses. Eucalyptus oil can be calming, and tea-tree oil is good for mild skin irritation.

Also, apparently for flavoring french macarons. Tasty, tasty macarons.

I've heard of using peppermint to soothe an upset stomach, but in the context of drinking a cup of peppermint tea. Do those people really think the skin is a good conduit for internal stuff?  If so, our veins and arteries would be clogged by cotton lint from our shirts and undergarments.

I've often used peppermint or ginger tea to soothe my tummy, but never just rubbing it on. She's....kind, but easily swayed to some views.  Also, she believes a special mix of these oils that she made herself (she's a dealer in said oils) cured her of Morgellon's Disease.

She does usually smell very nice however. :)

Essential oils have their uses. Not generally medicinal, though, I got swimmers itch on my arms from one of those crazy mud races once and tea tree oil stopped the itch immediately and helped it clear up faster (than the internet said it would.)

Smelly Pirate Hooker: Proof that some people (dumb people, to be clear, not any particular ethnicity or nationality) should be discouraged from reproducing. Not forcibly via sterilization, but just ... discouraged.

"Hey, parenthood, like everything else, isn't for everybody. If you think drinking bleach is OK, just don't have kids. Stick with pets."

Also, how about -- instead of acting like nothing can be done about it -- we start actually prosecuting people for disseminating harmful shiat like this, both products and the marketing. Telling people to poison their kids to cure autism isn't a First Amendment issue. It's enabling child abuse. It should be pursued and prosecuted as a crime.


This. There needs to be consequences for creating/spreading fake bullshiat that harms people.

Oh I know, I guess I was more all inclusive than I should have been. Tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, camphor, all have verified external uses.  Just not the oils that the "healthy essential oils" people are shilling for everything.  Argan oil is a wonderful treatment if you've fried your hair in saltwater/pool/sun.

Essential oils pretty much need to be ingested or inhaled for benefits. Except things like antiseptic/analgesic or bug repellents, rubbing on the skin does nothing. Also, they should never be used full strength but must be mixed with an oil to avoid irritating or even burning the skin. Same thing with ingesting them. They should never be ingested at full strength which is why peppermint or ginger would be made into a tea to calm nausea.

Unfortunately I had the opposite reaction. Tea Tree oil (very diluted in sweet almond oil) burned my skin. I use almond oil in a lot of things so it definitely was the tea tree.

Peppermint oil is a great pain reliever for sore muscles and headaches (it works wonders for my mom's pain related to her Parkinson's). I also will put a drop or two on my tongue for nausea and upset stomach but that is about the extent of its medicinal properties.

I drink ginger ale to sooth tummy burbles.  As for rubbing stuff on the skin, isn't unbroken skin pretty much impervious to a lot of stuff?  As in, keep open wounds covered to reduce infection risk.  I thought rubbing Vick's vapor rub on your chest was more so the vapors would be near your mouth and nose to inhale, and not so much soaking into your lungs.  Maybe I'm too stupid to understand all this modern magic, I'll keep going to my local minute clinic and let the nurse tell me what to do.

Argan oil (a carrier oil, not an essential oil BTW) is also great on the face. I have been using it for years. One drop on the outer corner of the eyelid nightly. I am in my 60's and still have no crows' feet.
