About His Drugs
The chemistry of essential oils and herbs are influenced by local geography, weather, season and time of day when plants were harvested and how they are processed, stored and packaged. Each plant is unique in its own chemistry and effect. Essential oils are never exactly the same unlike pharmaceutical drugs that are synthetically reproduced to be identical every time. Research studies have shown that essential oils show positive effects for a variety of health concerns including infection, pain, anxiety, depression, tumors, premenstrual symptoms, nausea and many others ailments.
