Hi Lulu,


In answer to your question, yes, the oils with Young Living can be consumed.  Many oils, touted as essential oils, are derived with harsh chemicals, diluted, or copied and produced in a lab.  Cheap copies bring cheap results and have the potential to be toxic.  So it is vital to take great in choosing high-quality essential oils and you are right to question.


Research has indicated that some oils are more effective when taken orally.  Only pure essential oils, proven safe and labeled as dietary supplements, should be used internally.  Dilution and dosage is dependent on the age, size, and the health constitution of the individual.

There are a few suggested internal consumption methods, here are a few:


1. Add 1-2 drops to a glass of water or rice milk.

2. Put several drops of oil into an empty capsule and swallow with water.

3. Put 1-2 drops onto a piece of bread or add to your meals when cooking.


I have a Free library and training on my website, Passion 4 Oils, to find out more,

I'm happy to help with any questions on using YL essential oils and products.


Have a great day!
