Blogs and social media are now the main means used
for spreading marketing hype and lies.

Many social media sites and blogs seem to offer helpful advice but are often a mechanism to extract cash from ill and gullible people. Health advisory sites are frequently run by people with no training in health care. Homesteader blogs repeat information from out-of-date books resulting in dangerous advice. Some so called 'doctors' have realised they can make lots of money by selling quack products and services. The title 'Dr' is mainly used in the USA to mislead people into thinking they are medical doctors when they are chiropractors.

With most of these blogs the owners censor anything that would expose their lack of knowledge or integrity. This stops con artists being exposed to scrutiny. I have been horrified at the misinformation on blogs that have sprung up like a cancer in recent years. They are frequently established by people who have no experience in the essential oils trade and their only objective is to make money from ad clicks. They parrot the hype and lies found on similar blogs, yet most readers seem to believe everything they say. Most of them have autolinks to Amazon who care nothing about safety issues and to Google who monitor everything you do on the Internet.

Beware of sites making claims about essential oils and the Bible. In Biblical times distilled essential oils were not available. Beware of those constantly using the word 'God' in their messages, this is a classic selling technique used by con artists to capture the hearts of believers.
