      Hi Bengal,

      I have several favorite places. My most favorite is Aromatics International. But, i also like Plant Therapy and Edens Garden. Whoever you buy from, make sure you can see a GCMS report for the oil(s) you buy. There are lots of scoundrels out there selling impure oils.

      I also buy from Simply Earth, mainly because I get their kit every month - it is fun to get recipes and supplies all at one time. I look forward to my box arriving like a kid anticipates Christmas!

      I just remembered ... there's a free 3-part class coming up called Your Essential Oil Pantry for Immune Support: Live.aromahead.com might get you to the link if you are interested in it... (if that link doesn't work and you're interested, i will try again...

      Thanks so much LWC. Not sure if I will actually do anything with it but at least I have the information if I decide to give it a try. I've been doing something as simple as soaking in the tub with lavender scented bath salts. Really helps me relax and feels great on aching joints.

      Do you make your own lavender-scented bath salts, @Bengal? If not, I can find a recipe for you - bath salts are super easy to make and probably a lot cheaper than buying them. I get a bunch of recipes for bath salts, but I only take showers so never use them.

      Thanks for posting this, it's crazy that we are in the richest country in the world and here we are looking at methods of making your own homemade TP, hand sanitizer, and disinfectants.

      I've never seen or heard of any of the products mentioned by the EPA.
      Lysol and bleach products are not available in my area.
      But, soap & water still is. As are homemade masks.

      One needs to use common sense these days since the "advice" from our government is non-sense in some cases; in some cases it changes hourly.

      @po18guy thanks for posting the video. I've found it more informative than a lot of things that I've seen. I think our government should watch it. South Korea has learned a lot that can be shared.
      @Molly72 I've seen a much longer list from the CDC but I don't remember where.

      I asked if I could go ring the bell. My Chemo was stopped in the middle of getting them as my body couldn't take it. I was in my oncologists office and she told me and I asked if I could still go down to the Chemo lab and ring the bell. She was all for it!! The staff there all were happy to see me ring the bell. For me it just felt good.

      There was a bell to ring when you finished treatment but it wasn't offered to my husband. I don't know why but he might have broken the thing or given a very anemic ring. I don't know.

      Very ironic, since he has hosted fund raisers (and personally contributed) for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to the tune of 15 million dollars over the years. From the web: "Limbaugh holds an annual fundraising telethon called the "EIB Cure-a-Thon"[194] for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.[195] In 2006, the EIB Cure-a-Thon conducted its 16th annual telethon, raising $1.7 million,[196] totaling over $15 million since the first cure-a-thon."

      Smoking has claimed so many we know - including my dad.

      po18guy, anyone can get lung cancer. 20% of smokers develop lung cancer. Only 20%.

      An earlier quote by him referring to smoking:
      "That is a myth. That has been disproven at the World Health Organization and the report was suppressed. There is no fatality whatsoever. There's no even major sickness component associated with secondhand smoke. It may irritate you, and you may not like it, but it will not make you sick, and it will not kill you...Firsthand smoke takes 50 years to kill people, if it does. Not everybody that smokes gets cancer. Now, it's true that everybody who smokes dies, but so does everyone who eats carrots ... I would like a medal for smoking cigars, is what I'm saying."
