On March 30, 2015, Lea began putting the Using Essential Oils Safely website together, as the information was getting too big to be organized in the facebook group.
On June 30, 2015, Using Essential Oils Safely reached 70,000 members.
In July, 2015, Facebook decided to delete our group (!!). While I contacted them numerous times about why, I never got a response. There have been other large groups which have also disappeared, leading to the assumption facebook just can't handle large groups. We started a forum, but after many of your requests, we started a new facebook group (which grew to 60,000 members as of October 2016, hit 100,000 May 2017, and as of September 2020 is home to 175,000 members). A month later, our the original group came back!
Lea has written guests posts, magazine articles, interviews with natural health and aromatherapy websites, and educates many on using essential oils safely via e-mail, her facebook pages and groups, worked as a consultant for natural health bloggers, reviewing information and recipes before they are published, as well as teleseminars and essential oil profile information for companies which provide essential oils for their customers, such as Lemongrass Spa, Edens Garden, and others.
