💥ARE OILS SAFE INTERNALLY? DōTERRA- yes, when noted as safe for Internal use. It's on the bottle. It really is! If an oil or blend is safe for internal use, the bottle is labeled in 2 ways so we know. It will be labeled "Essential Oil Supplement" and list supplement facts; AND in the use instructions located at the bottom of the bottle label it will list "for internal use". If the bottle says only "for aromatic and topical use," it is NOT safe to use internally!
💥CAN I BE ALLERGIC? When people react to an oil it is more often because they have too high of a toxic load and need to detoxify their liver and the reaction they are having falls into a detox reaction. If you are still unsure, go with your gut. There are plenty of other oils to use that provide the same support.
💥IS EUCALYPTUS SAFE FOR INGESTION?
doTERRA Eucalyptus single oil is Eucalyptus Radiata. BUT, the Eucalyptus that is in OnGuard and Breathe Drops is Eucalyptus Globus, it is a different species. The Globus variety is GRAS by the FDA. (Ingestible- the eucalyptus in Onguard is ingestible)
💥DO ESSENTIAL OILS EXPIRE? There are expiration dates on the bottom of your bottles as required by the FDA because they are consumable products. Oils lose efficacy over time. To make them last longer:
1. Keep them out of heat
2. Keep them out of direct sunlight
3. Keep the lids on- oxygen makes them evaporate
