My name is Celina Thomas. I live in Pullman, Washington and I’ve known about my oil intolerance/oil allergy since 2011.  You can read about how I discovered it here. I’ve been surprised over the past few years how many other people have similar issues with processed oils. It’s been nice to know I’m not the only one.

I’m currently writing a pamphlet for kindle about how to avoid processed oils.  It has everything I wish I had known about how to avoid oils all in one convenient place.  If you are interested in knowing when that is coming out sign up for an e-mail here.

I try and write a new post on Mondays, although sometimes my health prevents me. Mostly I post about writing and living with an oil intolerance. Living oil free isn’t easy but it is possible. Hopefully my experiences will help other people avoid some of the mistakes I have made.

    Hi Celina,
    I had a Cyrex test show CANOLA OLEOSIN as an issue for me. I haven’t seen the dr yet to get an explanation.
    Do you know what that is?
    Thanks, I love all the info on your site. Sad to read about coconut oil. I use it everyday topically, and as a hair treatment a few times a month.
    What are your thoughts on using essential oils for aromatherapy, topically, diffused, and internally?

    • So glad you found my site! You’ll have to confirm it with your doctor but I would imagine that CANOLA OLEOSIN is the protein found in canola plants.They call it rape seed in the UK.
      I would hope that coconut oil is not an issue for you. If it turns out to be, you could try straight coconut milk for your hair. I use it and honey as a pre conditioner very successfully. You might also see if making your own coconut oil at home works for you. There are some very simple recipes on WikiHow. Hope you find out what works for you.

    Hi Celina,
    I just found your blog and it gives me hope! I recently started testing for possible food intolerance in addition to being on a GF diet, and I’ve become aware of bloating/nausea and tenderness in the stomach whenever I eat foods with sunflower and possibly safflower oils. I also know I have a certain intolerance to soy where I can eat some soy, but not a lot (but then again, maybe I shouldn’t be eating any??). I was beginning to worry about what I was going to eat because these oils are in everything. But then I found your blog. Thank you for your help! I’m at the beginning of my research and still confused, but I feel better now.
