Video: How the FDA Reacts to Essential Oils


I am not a political person. My husband is. My husband is so deep in politics sometimes I think my head will explode from the intrusion it has on our lives.

Maybe that’s why I don’t really care to read about it, or write about it or hear about it. I’m inundated with it every day via my husband. You would think there is nothing else in the world except the Beltway and what’s going on in politics.

That’s okay. It’s HIS passion, not mine. He writes a political blog and has a column with the Washington Times. It makes him happy.

I’ve stated this before, but I’m a libertarian. I am not a fan of big government. I am not a fan of anyone or anything wanting more control over my life.

I saw a commenter on a site once that summed up my feelings perfectly:

You live your life the way you want, I’ll live my life the way I want, just don’t expect me to pay for your stuff.

Unfortunately, the government always thinks they know better than anyone else. They believe they know how to spend my money better than I do. They think they know what kind of health insurance I should carry and how much I should be willing to pay for it. They want to tell me whether or not I can drink milk from my local farmer if it hasn’t been through their federally-approved pasteurization process.

They think it’s perfectly okay to put Genetically Modified food on the market for us to consume, yet demand a farmer jump through hoops because they choose to raise their food without pesticides.

In short, there will never be a time where those in charge of the government will sit back and say, “You know, we’re too big. We need to cut back on some of this stuff.”

It will never happen. They are addicted to telling us what we can and cannot do. They have committees and debates and back-door negotiations to hammer out deals that have nothing to do with what is best for me and you and everything to do with what is best for the deal-makers.

This brings me to the FDA and their stance on Essential Oils. But before that, did you know the FDA actually tried to shut down walnut farmers from saying their nuts were good for your health? It’s true! The FDA tried to claim walnuts were DRUGS! You can read about that here.

It’s not the first time the FDA has tried to prevent people from making claims that food and alternative, holistic methods are viable solutions to health problems. You can read that here.

As for Essential Oils, the FDA is not happy about the success stories and the increasing momentum that is causing people to take control of their own health in holistic ways. How will Big Pharma, their lobbyists and marketing departments make their money if we are all buying essential oils and dumping their lab-created chemical trash down the toilet where it belongs?

This video is one of the best presentations on Essential Oils I have ever seen. While it is very funny, it is also scary, because it’s true!
