AUTHOR’S NOTE: When Michael passed on I felt as though I had lost a member of my family; he had been a major part of my entire life. Way before we had met he had been the biggest influence on me for as long as I can remember, getting me through so many bad experiences that I had as a child. I took his death badly and I felt so lost and confused that I needed to do something for him. I took it upon myself to organize a tree planting for him. I felt that wasn’t enough though, so on the 8th of August 2009, alongside the tree planting, I organized a Michael Jackson Memorial / Fun day, with all proceeds going to a children’s hospital that I myself had attended throughout my childhood. I also did the same this June, the day after his first anniversary, and I will continue to do so every single year for as long as I can. It’s my way of giving back and saying “Thank you!” to Michael for all that he has done for me and millions of others worldwide. Michael's tree stands proudly in a park in Dublin, surrounded by a children’s play-area. I think he would have liked it
One last thought for those concerned about taking EO’s internally. First, there’s no need to as there’s little to no nutritional value in an essential oil. However, if a product is not 100% pure, organic or wild crafted, using cold pressed or the lowest temperatures possible for processing, than there can be questionable, undesirable and / or possibly toxic ingredients that we would not want to ingest. And if you truly understand the workings of our 50 to 100 trillion cells, you wouldn’t want to put something toxic on your skin, not ingest it through our olfactory system – our nose.
