"But I heard lavender gives men breasts..."
Perhaps, despite everything you’ve read, your masculinity still feels vulnerable, compromised, maybe even threatened. You read an article, or maybe a little bird said, lavender oil can cause estrogen imbalance in men. Here we laugh at such notions, written by hacks, disproved time and time again. But some are still unnerved by catchy headlines and thoughts of growing breasts, so maybe it’s time we clear the air and lay those thoughts to rest.
Lavender does NOT cause men to grow boobs
An article you may have read that has caused some worry isn’t what it seems. Written in 2007, the study planted deep-seeded fears in minds all around the world, based on vague information, and a sample pool of just three little boys. That’s three little boys in the whole wide world for a study to claim lavender could disrupt hormones and cause men to grow breasts. Three little boys ages four, seven, and ten.
And even if the results were sound, we’re talking about little boys, not men. Which are you again? That’s what I thought. So you can forget growing breasts, because that myth’s busted, long gone, buried six feet under by articles like this one and this one too. Who would’ve thought a little research, digging, and spotlight questions might reveal the truth?
