I have used essential oils for over ten years. I started, like most of us do, with the ‘gateway’ oil, lavender. I would use it with my psychotherapy clients if they were feeling anxious, or before doing a guided imagery or visualization to calm their central nervous system.
At the time, I didn’t know much about essential oils, and would simply purchase the lavender from my local Whole Foods.
It wasn’t until I became a yoga teacher and deepened my own personal wellness journey, that I became more educated about essential oils. And unfortunately what I found out was quite concerning. Not all essential oils are created equal. Even the brands you find in your health food store can contain additives and adulterants.
For example, why would Aura Cacia’s grapefruit essential oil state “Not For Internal Use” if the only thing in that bottle was purely grapefruit???
ALL of Young Living’s essential oils can be used internally — so much so — that they all come with food-grade labeling on them.
This informative article provides some important questions to ask when purchasing essential oils.
