    Stupid EU bureaucrats may ban LAVENDER

    This is yet another example of stupid EU bureaucrats passing too many regulations, without giving much thought to the consequences.

    First of all, the thing to understand is that lavender is something that is very French. To an American, it would be like apple pie or hot dogs.
    The French make all sorts of scented washing products, cosmetic products, soaps and perfumes with lavender.

    Yet the regulators are trying to single out "harmful chemicals", and this includes in natural products, specifically a chemical called linalool which is responsible for most of the smell of natural lavender.

    There are some French people who are outraged that some bureaucrats could just casually pass some regulation and then it would make lavender products illegal to sell.

    For one thing, it would be devastating to certain areas of France that focus on lavender farming. It's a long tradition that stretches back more than 1000 years.

    The article is in French:
    https://france3-regions.francetvinfo..._b3gdnogNTu8Xg

    Totalitarians don't seem to think about the possible unintended consequences of all the laws they keep on passing. Or they just don't care.
    Have to keep everyone "safe" and keep on banning more things.

    It would be almost totally unimaginable if lavender scented things became banned in France, the place where lavender is most famous for coming from.
    But sadly with the politics in France and the European Union today, it wouldn't really be all that surprising.

    Is it too little, too early to hope for a Frexit?

    Not yet , but its building up. The Yellow Vests movement is still alive and kicking ,and has joined forces with the Yellow Star Movement ( the French anti lockdown and anti vaxxers). And Marine le Penn is slowly gaining in support.

    Hey if there's a shortage I just planted 2 (actually 3, one died) lavender plants in our back yard. But I'm not going to count on making money on them. It was 103 degrees here today & plants just burn up even if you water them.

    On the other hand Jalapeno's love this heat. I've already had 3 different crops on 2 plants. I love those Jalapeno's!

    Lavender is magnificent. No one should mess with it.

    Leftists are mentally ill.
    Freedom takes NO. No to one Party rule, no to election fraud, no to political fear mongering, no to lockdowns and mandates that violate your Civil Rights.
    Say no and mean it.

    The Eu is famous for this sort of thing, and you can g'tee anything that they ban isnt being banned for the reasons they state.

    Take Creosote.

    Used for centuries as a wood preservative, the EU banned it on 'environmental grounds'


    OFC what they didnt mention was the alternatives suggested were all made by german companies, and cost twice as much.

    Frenchixt maybe?

    The Poles are already starting to think about their own exit.

    It is a shame, really, as the EU looks wonderful on paper. But, again, just as in our own nation, just as per historical record: Those who get themselves into positions of power, just can't stop.

    I think Power is more addictive than any chemical humans may use. It's just that the victims are never the person addicted, nor his enablers.
