Eating Essential Oils

on June 27, 2017

I’m not sure if it’s just me but there seems to be a lot going around just now about eating or drinking essential oils. It’s mainly from doterra suppliers and users so I’m not sure if this is something that they’re pushing just now. 

It seems a bit wrong to me. I love using essential oils both on my skin and in an aromatherapy sense. I have a water based unit in the studio that gives it a great smell and atmosphere. 


But drinking them mixed in water or adding them to food? Nope. To me no matter how pure you think your oil is, it’s still an unregulated industry. I’m sure that detorra oils are good quality and come from great ingredients but am I going to ingest it. Nope. 

I lived with an awesome aromatherapist after university and she was extremely cautious about using mixing up her good quality undiluted oils with carrier oils to ensure that none got on her skin due to the damage it could cause to her skin. Can you imagine what’d happen to your mouth if you left a drop on the side of a cup and drank it? Ekk! 

I’m sure most people who drink and eat essential oils come to no harm but it’s not something that I’m willing to do.
