Can EOL oils be used internally?

Many people use essential oils internally for self-medication; however, as we are not licensed aromatherapists, we cannot recommend internal use. We don’t know what medications, quantities or allergies you might have and as such cannot make recommendation on internal use. Our customers and their health are our top priority.

Our essential oil are labeled “for external use” for our own liability. As essential oils are highly concentrated, they should only be taken internally when under the guidance of a health care professional who is trained in aromatherapy.
