Scientists Confirm: Essential Oils Unrelated to Hormone Disruption Article Date: 23 Nov 2021

Epidemiological Research Debunks the Long-Held Myth That Lavender and Tea Tree Oils Cause Endocrine Disruption in Children.

Results of a study by Franklin Health Research Centre (USA) conclusively rule out Tea Tree Oil as an endocrine disrupter.
The results of this large prospective epidemiological study conducted in the USA conclusively rules out any purported links between Tea Tree Oil and breast development in young boys, a medical condition called gynecomastia, also known as premature thelarche in young girls.

The study confirmed the following:

  1.  Prevalence of endocrine disorders among children exposed to these ingredients (Tea Tree and Lavender) is consistent with the general population and proposed links between these ingredients and endocrine disruption cannot be substantiated in an epidemiological study.
  2. Warnings raised by Henley, Ramsey, Diaz, and Korach (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences) in publications since 2007 purporting the link between endocrine disruption and essential oils (and their individual constituents) were premature, caused undue concern, and erroneously misled the medical community and countless concerned parents.
