Did you know there’s a good possibility the candy canes you ate this past holiday season contained a very small amount of Peppermint essential oil?
Candy canes aren’t the only food product that contains these wonderful oils; in fact, they’re used fairly frequently to flavor foods we consume on a regular basis.
The thing to keep in mind when determining whether or not you’re going to ingest essential oil blends of your own making is your familiarity with these complicated oils.
Although most commonly used essential oils are safe to use internally in very small doses, I strongly recommend that you meet with a licensed Aromatherapist or health professional prior to use, so together you can determine the right program for you. Your Aromatherapist may discourage you from ingesting essential oils depending on your medical history and the oils you want to use.
As with all things pertaining to essential oils, I encourage you to educate yourself as much as possible either through research (my FAQ and other blog posts are great resources) or if you would like to fully immerse yourself in the world of Aromatherapy, you can enroll in a certification course. Either way, you’ll feel even more comfortable using essential oils as you further explore their vast benefits and fascinating history.
