Essential oils brush with the UK Police in London!

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

This was emailed to the school by a graduate of the Welsh School of Aromatherapy and I thought that it was worth posting up for all to enjoy.

(My son) D. has been down to London on his first week of in-house university lecture days (for a herbal medicine degree) and enjoyed it hugely. On the first morning, he was wandering around the streets, trying to find his way to the campus, when he was stopped by the police, doing their spot checks for drugs. It was all very amicable, but the little bottle of essential oils that I had provided Dafydd with, to help him concentrate, got them quite excited. The officers in question decided to test the oil like the drugs. (I had given D. Rosemary, Sweet Marjoram, Lavender and Chamomile, to also help keep him relaxed and free of headaches) Now, apparently, cannabis turns their tester blue, speed turns it red, ecstacy green…. but one drop of my oils turned it all colours of the rainbow…. and then they all simply disappeared! The police were amazed… D. was trying hard not to laugh. I thought that it was an absolute hoot when he told me, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!

Love and blessings,
G.
