Re: Incense can it be bad for people with epilepsy

You say you have never heard that sleepiness can be bad for some people with Epilepsy, my husband has suffered with Grand Mal epilepsy since he was a teenager & is in his mid 40,s now, when he is over tired & very sleepy or been asleep & wakes he goes into a seizure,

It is a known fact that people that suffer from epilepsy should be careful when using ... Rosemary, sage, camphor and spike lavender oils contain camphor,
when using certain essential oils in aromatherapy, since some contain neurotoxins which have a convulsant effect.

Hope this has helped

Regards

Lelou :-)
