Use lavender or tea tree oil and watch prepubescent males develop breast!

This is not ‘FAKE’ news nor is this left over from April fools Day. Young boys are vulnerable, according to study data presented at the Endocrine Society annual meeting (ENDO) in Chicago. Study analyzed 8 common components included in lavender and tea tree oils.

Four chemicals present in both oils where placed with human cells in a lab and found to exhibit female hormone (estrogen) and anti-androgenic (male hormone) actions. Hence the gynecomastia in boys.  More bad news, 65 other ‘essential’ oils tested had these chemicals present. I think the name says it all ‘essential’ so other compounds added.

Read careful all labels!
