The popularity of essential oils has increased 100 fold since I began my studies in the early 90’s. Twenty five years ago the field of aromatherapy was beginning to emerge into the lives of everyday folks. Back in the day I could have conducted workshops on a daily basis because there were very few of us who were qualified to work with essential oils, and there simply wasn’t enough hours in the day to tackle all the queries from the general public when I started selling essential oils.
Twenty years forward with the advancement of the internet and the unlimited resources about anything and everything at our fingertips – it now appears that Everyone is an expert when it come to essential oils.
There is a great deal of anecdotal information on the internet pointing to the use of essential oils internally. This concerns me terribly, because as we all know – good information becomes diluted and convoluted. Please take the time to thoroughly familiarize yourself with Essential Oil Safety at the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy or at The Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists.
Note: Aromatherapy, like any other natural therapy, is intended to complement not replace traditional medicine. When in doubt about any medical condition, always seek medical advice. See legal
