      For one thing, the Amazon and eBay ads that you included have nothing to do with pennyroyal.

      Not good - you list benefits of ingesting this herb and only at the end do you post a warning. It is doubtful that any responsible person reviewing your hub for the QAP will approve it. Hubs can be read by people of any age... and someone in a desperate situation might act on the information you provide.

      "Pennyroyal essential oil is extremely concentrated, it should not ever be taken internally because it is highly toxic; even in small doses, the poison can lead to death."

      Your photo is stolen from WiseGeek, which is a 'competitor' of HubPages.

    My 2c: Your overall message is very unclear.  The first half of the hub promotes various uses (mostly oral), but the end says to never ingest it.  I would also note that promoting therapeutic uses of a non GRAS (generally regarded as safe) substance can cause issues with the FDA even with your disclaimers.  Finally, you seem to be using a stock image that is watermarked and without appropriate permission .

    Guys, am now in the state of confusion. The hub that you guys felt that was very bad is now "featured". I don't understand. What could have changed hubpages' mind?

      If you are advocating something dangerous, it would be responsible to take it down.
