In The Lab...
I won't lie to you and tell you that I know what carminative and cholagogue mean. Okay, now I do. Carminative is a fancy term for gas reliever and cholagogue is an agent that promotes the discharge of bile from the liver and gallbladder. This is serious stuff and not to be taken or handled lightly. For that reason, I am studying like a chemistry student and taking meticulous notes-what can be tolerated by pregnant women, those with hypertension (like myself), pets...It's an exciting yet daunting venture, but I love to learn, and I cannot wait to start creating with essential oils!
