Rare Condition In Boys Caused By Hormonal Imbalance

Results of a preliminary study show lavender and tea tree oils found in some shampoos, soaps and lotions can temporarily leave boys with enlarged breasts.
Researchers say this only happens in rare cases, when the hormone balance is disrupted.
The study focused on three boys, ages four, seven and ten.
Researchers say they all went back to normal when they stopped using the products with the natural, or essential oils.
