    The study Catherine is referring to only looked at young boys. I don't think there was any suggestion that it applies to adults.

    How on earth can oil you put on your skin change your internal hormones or the way you store fat?!!!! When I last looked my skin was er, water proof and oil proof. I know some hormones can be absorbed through the skin and some drugs such as nicotine but oil?!!

    Hi Blonde

    You're normally better informed about health than this. Skin will absorb a lot of different substances. You can rub vodka on your skin and get drunk, for instance. Pregnant women are advised against using a range of different massage oils as they can affect blood pressure and have other effects.

    Although I think the only cure for manboobs is bigger shirts.

    I just haven't seen any research about this tea tree oil problem myself, so can't comment. It sounds like another OTT health scare based on I don't know what research, so until I've read it I can't take it as read and wont make up my own mind on it. It'll be interesting to see how many overweight people throw out all their tee tree oil stuff and blame it on that though....

    ginger. don't go near pregnant wimmin with any beauty product containing ginger.
    not sure what happens, maybe they explode.
    anyway, natural products do all sorts. Where do you think all the world's drugs come from? They're found in nature and then synthesised, eg NSAIDs from pineapple. Most of the cool treatments for this and that come from the rainforests so it stands to reason that a natural oil may have certain side-effects with certain people.

    Try cutting a hole in a watermelon and pouring the vodka into it instead. Then eat the melon. It's MUCH nicer.

    Well here's the paper so you can make your own mind up (although you'll have to register).

    As I said earlier, the study relates only to boys.
