I love being a scientist because you can get away with doing stupid things – like soaking my feet in a tub of vodka for an hour on New Year’s Day to get drunk!
Why did I do this seemingly stupid stunt? In my Reflexology practice I have been using
essential oils on the feet in the hope of further benefit to my pain patients. My clients report that the use of the oils does not reduce pain but what-the-heck.
Did I get drunk? NO! I didn’t even get a buzz. So why would using essential oils on the feet be of any benefit? I don’t think they are when used on the feet alone. Aromatherapy is Aromatherapy. Period.
The debate rages on…..
Yours in Health!
