I’ve recently seen an uptick in the amount of ingesting advice that I am seeing on social media.

So I just wanted to put it out there that essential oils, as awesome as they are, are potent chemicals. Yes, they are natural, but used inappropriately, can be irritating, and even toxic. I’m not sure of the exact source of this quote, but I read it on one of my favorite blogs from Marge Clark at @naturesgiftaromatherapy. There is a wealth of knowledge to be found in the literature about potential interactions for essential oils, and the risk of interactions go up exponentially if you choose to put the oils inside of your body as opposed to using them topically or aroma-therapeutically.

GRAS status of oils only applies to the flavoring use when considered in parts-per-million. Drops in your water are not only not diluted, but is also a phenomenally higher ratio than us used in any food flavoring.
