Today id like to discuss a product which alot of us have been using for years. Some people use maybe 1 every so often, others can use up to half a box a day.

Over the years ive noticed a particular thing happen with alot of people, and that is Repitition. They use them over and over, and in some cases abusing
them without realising.

The product you ask?? Is Tissues!! Yes.... Tissues.

Now before you laugh and scroll up and click 'Recent Posts' , i ask you to give me a second.

It was only tonight that i thought id do some research and check it out.

A leading brand


Kleenex® facial tissues are made from wood fibres sourced from sustainably managed eucalypt and pine plantations.


Sounds innocent enough. Then i found;

Pollen Allergy


For example, pine tree pollen is produced in large amounts by a common tree, which would make it a good candidate for causing an allergy. However, the chemical composition of pine pollen appears to make it less allergenic than other types. Moreover, because pine pollen tends to fall straight down and is not widely scattered, it rarely reaches human noses.


Notice it says that large amounts of pollen, and, it rarely reaches human noses.

Thats the Pine side of things....

What about Eucalyptus??

Eucalyptus side effects


Eucalyptus can cause dermatological side-effects. It is concluded that adverse effects of herbal medicines are an important albeit neglected subject in dermatology, which deserves further systematic investigation.


Also goes on to say:


Survey of the literature shows essential oils of 11 plants to be powerful convulsants (eucalyptus, fennel, hyssop, pennyroyal, rosemary, sage, savin, tansy, thuja, turpentine, and wormwood) due to their content of highly reactive monoterpene ketones, such as camphor, pinocamphone, thujone, cineole, pulegone, sabinylacetate, and fenchone. Three cases strongly support the concept of plant-related toxic seizure. Nowadays the wide use of these compounds in certain unconventional medicines makes this severe complication again possible.



Eucalyptus oil is well documented as being extremely toxic if ingested. We report a case of systemic eucalyptus oil toxicity from topical application. A 6-year-old girl presented with slurred speech, ataxia and muscle weakness progressing to unconsciousness following the widespread application of a home remedy for urticaria containing eucalyptus oil. Six hours following removal of the topical preparation her symptoms had resolved, with no long term sequelae.


Having a tissue stuffed in your nose with added essential oils may be harmful in the long run, like i said at the top of my OP, i see the people who use tissues, always seem to use them. If your nose is running, quick, grab a tissue, the tissue may keep it running, what do you do??grab another tissue.

Just a thought Guys and gals...

Now you may Blow me away..........



I could go on,Are something as simple as tissues affecting our everyday lives??

I know it seems minor , but it all adds up.

I doubt there is much pollen in pine chips and if there was, I doubt it would survive the pulping process.

As for eucalyptus, well I guess it could have an adverse effect on people who are allergic to it.

I know mum used to put a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil in a bowl of hot water to help clear sinuses.

Just stick you head under a towel and breathe in, works a treat!

Thanx Chadwickus, i use to do the same thing with the towel and a few drops of Euca, like i stated , not all but some may be affected. I'll check out the pulping process, good point.

Hmmm...

A Tissue CT???

Talk about job security...

Use the tissues for a cold or allergy and the tissue itself becomes the irritant for continued use...

Genius!!!


Wish I'd thought of that!


(Dang you Monsanto and Scott/Pacific!!!)

Shake a tissue right out of the box in front of sunlight and watch how many dust particles fly out of it. I have always thought that these dust particles can make you sneeze and cause an even runnier nose...therefore making you use even more tissues!

Ha lol! That's what I was going to point out!


I mean, it kind of makes sense, though, I guess. Just like the caffeine in soft drinks to make you drink more.

similar, they'll use any tactic, wether toxic or not to gain the ability of trust in the consumers minds, weve all seen it happen before, wether its clothes or foods, there seems to be a fad in a lot of things......

You get a home run for that thought!


I'd like to add that not only is everything addictive, everything is a CONSPIRACY!!! It is, don't go around doubting it either.

I know someone who can't live without kleenex with aloe tissues, has a box in every room and in the car.

I use a tissue once a day after showering when the nostrils are still wet. I wonder what the difference between toilet paper and tissue manufacturing consists of. Is it the same process? Toilet tissue is treated with all kinds of aromatics and additives too, right? So following the logic, using treated tissue of any kind would contribute to ongoing allergic reactions in some people. They seem to have us on both ends of the (t)issue.

Some brands seem to be better than others in the allergen dept.

Kleenex makes me sneeze and I find it dusty as an above poster noted.

Puffs work well for me and Sweetie.


When I'm in the shop - which is most days - I use a paper towel.
The industrial C-fold type as well as the typical kitchen roll type when I need a tissue.

A little rough, but they work well.

Toilet tissue differs slightly to normal tissue in that it is made to decompose in septic tanks better.

Off hand, do you know if that treatment difference consists of a chemical of some kind to make the tissue septic tank friendly?

No idea on that one.

Another thing of interest though is a by-product of bleaching the paper.

Dioxins.

I understand that tissue for allergies and the like have a mild waterproofing added to the formula.

Seems to be true, when soaking wet it doesn't decompose all that fast.
