I have been taking Plavix for a couple of years. This year I’ve started using essential oils for various things. I have been using wintergreen for arthritis but not on a daily basis. I’ve been diffusing a lot of cinnamon and clove the last few weeks for the fall smell. Had a cold last week and have used oregano as well on bottom of my feet. I’ve noticed some bruising marks showing up on my legs in various areas the last few days. Should I be concerned?
