I have not used it. I had never heard of it until this post so I cannot offer any personal information on it.

It says it's for irritation or injury. I see it says it can lower blood sugar, but it is basing that on the cinnamon like qualities of it, and from my research, cinnamon only helps maintain good blood sugars.How exactly did you want to use it?

I also see that the price ranges from $25 to $60 for about 5ml. That is a very small amount and if you are taking 8 drops a day it may be a huge cost.

Have you read and user reviews on it? I found one on Amazon and it was not favorable. But it was only one.

I read that it is for aches and pains as well as injury. Didn't see the one on Amazon. It is made from a tree that grows in Ecuador. Personally, I would not use something that comes from a foriegn country because you have no idea what it is in the bottle.

I just read additional information. Gary Young has been studying this amazing oil for around 3 years. It has shown great potential in lowering blood sugar, lowering cortisol, digestive support, and as a disinfectant, antidiarrheal, antifungal and antiparasitic. Ocotea has the highest level of alpha-humulene of any essential oil. Alpha-humulene can balance the body’s internal response to irritation. Only copaiba essential oil has comparable levels of this natural plant compound.

An oil that lowers blood sugar AND cortisol could theoretically result in weight reduction. That has been the experience of many who were able to have access to the oil prior to its official unveiling last week.

What is even worse is there is no disclaimer and the person who wrote this is just an ordinary everyday person. I do not do supplements as most of them do not contain what is actually in the bottle.
