My rule of thumb is do the opposite of what the FDA, CDC and HHS recommends and you'll be fine-too many examples to cite.

Exactly, and I am doing it right now! I have used essential oils to enhance my health over the past 8 or 9 years...since starting to use them, my personal health has improved many times over. So yes, I have already found what works for me, and I'm sticking to it. The FDA's pants are on fire!
