Blending of Industries
These products are attempting to marry 'vitamins' and 'supplements' with homeopathy, which will further the MYTHS
about homeopathy. I'm sorry for the way these products are being marketed. The founders of this company are all marketing and cosmetic experts. They are not homeopaths, although they will be posting their advisory board on the website soon.
Benefit of the Doubt
Perhaps, if I give the benefit of the doubt, their intention is good: to bring homeopathy into the public eye much more through the cosmetic and beauty industry. Of course, my concern is that, "homeopathy is medicine" and should not be taken lightly like powder blush or lipstick.
Based on a recent blog written by someone who was proposing these products were simply supplements to take instead of vitamins, I thought to myself and commented, " These are supplements, they are not homeopathic. Homeopathy is medicine and should not be taken lightly. A person must see a professional homeopath or physician to take care of medical problems. If you were overdosing on crude vitamin supplements, it was a wise choice to eliminate them from your diet and see the results. Start with a clean slate to determine what responses your body has to lifestyle, environment and nutrition." This concept is stated in the Organon of Medicine to remove all obstacles to cure.

Sprayology Products Blog Review
| Sprayology products have been like a dream come true for me! For some time now I have felt the need to take vitamins and I did try to take them in pill form for a while. To be honest with you, they made me sick! Not that they gave me a disease or anything like that, but taking a half a dozen pills every morning made me feel sick to my stomach. The pills just did not agree with me especially if I took any that contained iron. I thought that I would give up on the vitamin thing until I stumbled upon some ads for a uniquely different line of vitamin products by Sprayology."
Freedom of Speech
People can have the freedom to post their views and opinions about products and these are called testimonials. However, readers should be aware that complete knowledge and facts about the products may be skewed. These types of opinion pieces also drive the market. When I visited the Sprayology website there were many links to NEWS articles and even major media outlets like CBS television had their "Gadget" reviewer mention the Sprayology products.
Homeopathic Use of Sprays
I've always thought the method of dispersion via sprays for homeopathic remedies have been a wonderful invention. I would like to hear some opinions on the value, ease and other qualities for packaging homeopathy this way. I have even purchased some empty spray bottles myself to fill with my remedy to use as a spritzer or to mist the air, skin or apply to the mucosal membranes of the mouth. A number of articles here on HWC have talked about using the mechanical nebulizer
for bronchitis and asthma treatment.
Lets have a discussion about the pros and cons of spray applications. Can the remedy be tainted through contact? Should the bottle be for one single user? Can an energy remedy be contaminated? Has anyone used a spray bottle for a person who cannot take the remedy by mouth or given to an unruly, fearful, uncooperative child? In the new "How Homeopathy Helps Grow Great Gardens" with Kaviraj he will be teaching us how to use the spray method on our plants.
Mixology of Other Types of Ingredients
What about the concept of mixing many ingredients, both homeopathic and non-homeopathic together in one formula? How does that work for you? As we learn and discuss the mode of action of remedies and the concept that we want a 'clean' mouth when taking remedies, does it make any sense to make a formula, like a Chinese Herbal combination, where all ingredients work synergistically?
I Have My Doubts
I have my doubts and my philosophical problems with creating these blends, where in truth, we do not know or have experience of them having been used out in the field. Are the homeopathic inactivated when put in a bottle with other ingredients or are their properties enhanced? I don't have an answer. Waiting for yours.
