Embarrassing problem with 024 besides smell, caution

    Not to alarm anyone, I'm still using 024 :). It helps so much with flexibility, I don't think I could give it up. But I had a bad reaction, and felt I should post.

    We all know that 024 has a very, very strong smell.

    But I have a very sensitive -- well, let's just call it what they call it in lingerie catalogs -- "nether" region.

    I took a shower after using 024 and developed a -- well, let's just say -- a bad reaction in the nether region!

    It's all clearing up now (gentle care,) but it was a clear and immediate reaction to the strong oils in 024.

    Now before entering the shower, I wipe down my shoulders and back with a warm washcloth to rinse off some of the 024. When I get under the shower, I tip to one side, then the other, to "pre-rinse" my back without water running down my spine to the nether region.

    If you have a bath, this probably won't happen. The 024 will probably be dilute enough not to affect that area. But I only have a shower in this tiny place.

    How did I know the 024 caused this? It was easy. I had the exact same reaction when I thought I could rinse my hair -- after coloring it -- in the shower. BIG mistake! I never did that again, LOL.

    This is really embarrassing to post, but I've read that there are others here on the board just as sensitive as I am "there." So I felt I should post a caution :).

    Thank you for taking the time to warn others! I like your picture in your Bio. I love watching the sky! I have read books about Corrie Tenboom. Boy that looks strange, it's been awhile I'm not sure that I spelled right. It is amazing what people went thru in the holocaust & survived with the deepest of faith. It also makes me thankful to be an American!!!! Hugs, Tam

    well that stinks!!
    Thanks for warning us all.
    I was gonna go grab some today.
    I guess I'll be extra careful NOT to get any near my 'you know what' LOL
    I'm very sensitive too.(never use to be)??
    I used a eucalyptus oil in my bath one time for sinus pain/stuffiness,..... I got the same reaction.
    It was'nt fun. (BURN!!??)
