Does the ingestion of Young Living’s essential oils scare you? I’ll admit, I rarely ingest and even then it has only been a citrus oil. If I had a chronic condition or feel a sickness coming on, I don’t think I would hesitate. I’m sure the debate is hundreds of years old whether it is ok or not. The British form of aromatherapy says never ever ever. The French says yes, it’s good to do so. So what should you do? Research and more research. There are many books out there written by well trained doctors (naturopaths or MDs). I know of one British style aromatherapist that everyone uses his name to say the ingestion of oils isn’t safe. I found a FB comment of his that says it is ok, to a certain degree, as long a carrier oil is added to the capsule.
I found this article today and she sums it up WAY better than I can. (and she’s a Harvard trained doctor.) :) I encourage you to read the full article.
In conclusion, remember…Young Living oils TRULY are the purest essential oils in the world. I would never ingest another brand (and most cheap bottles say not to ingest.) Remember, there are huge benefits to inhalation and topical application, as well as ingestion.
