Folks are always asking:
Do you make all your own essential oils?
Where are your oils from?
Are your essential oils ‘pure therapeutic grade’?
Can I take them internally?
No we do not make essential oils, we buy essential oils from ethical suppliers who buy directly from farms and producers within the country of origin where the plants are grown, harvested and often distilled or extracted on site.
There is no governing or licensing body that certifies that a particular brand of essential oils are of a ‘Pure Therapeutic Grade’. Please refer to one of my earlier posts.
Professional Aromatherapists in North America who adhere to professional standards (as stipulated by their college or member association) do not promote the use of essential oils for ingestion or for internal use.
The internet is full of chatter making reference to using essential oils internally and that certain essential oils will cure a disease (specifically cancer). Please take the time to peruse the following links which may help you to debunk some of the myths and develop a better understanding of how to use essential oils safely.
