Is Ingesting Essential Oils Safe?

Healthy living is a subject dear to me.

  
Essential Oils used daily are amazing when topically applied or diffused into the atmosphere, used in baths, hot tubs, in massage oils and cleaning products – a few drops of Epoch Brisk added to your morning  shower before stepping in to inhale the invigorating eucalyptus pine fragrance and awaken the senses is simply sensational.  The uses of essential oils are many and varied.

I often read and hear people saying EOs can be added to food and drinks for flavour and health benefits like detoxing etc … but unless recommended by a qualified health professional this can be a very dangerous practise. Essential Oils are extremely potent and can be highly toxic if ingested.

A great blog article below explains.

By all means embrace and enjoy essential oils but please don’t ingest them unless recommended by a qualified health professional. 

They may be all natural and come from plants but do not make the mistake of thinking they are mild.

      Thank you! They ARE the new rage and they are divine – and so grounding, I’ve had a few things on my mind keeping me up at night recently and a dab of lavender on the pillow or a dab of citrus on the wrist during the day makes me feel grounded and ok with the world. Thank you for the encouragement! Have a lovely day 🌞
