Lavender Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Endocrine Disruption: A Scientific Approach

Are lavender and tea tree oils dangerous for children?

The subject of lavender and tea tree essential oils in children has been hotly debated for over a decade. Each year, more and more preliminary evidence is published, and with each new publication, media hysteria ensues. Is this truly justified? Are these oils dangerous for children? If not, what are we to do with the growing body of evidence in scientific journals?

In this one-hour webinar, you will hear directly from Dr. Jessie Hawkins, the lead researcher on the only epidemiological study being conducted on this topic. Dr. Hawkins will provide a scientific look at what the existing evidence does and does not show, what needs to be done to solve this puzzle, and what is currently taking place.

The purpose of this webinar is to provide an unbiased, objective look at the existing research on the topic through the eyes of a professional trained in epidemiology–the science of determining which factors cause disease in a given population and which factors protect against disease. Through these established scientific methods, Dr. Hawkins will put the existing case study and laboratory research into the proper context for interpretation, providing you clarity on this controversial topic.
