Hey guys!! The third and final way to use essential oils is by ingesting them.
I N G E S T I N G your oils means to swallow them – either in your food or drink, or by filling an empty vegetable capsule. Until recently, I didn’t know that essential oils could be ingested, and to be honest, I wasn’t completely comfortable with it at first. Now that I’ve done the research, I’ve realized the benefits of ingesting, and am confident that Young Living’s essential oils are safe to do this (personally, I would not trust any other brand).
It’s important to know that not all oils are made to be ingested, so please refer to the label of each oil for proper usage instructions. All “Vitality” oils are part of Young Living’s dietary oils line and are GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) and can be ingested if you choose to do so.
When essential oils are ingested, they are processed through the digestive tract, and additional filtration occurs through the liver, kidneys, intestines, and other organs.
Try making some Thieves Tea next time you are feeling under the weather. It always perks me up during the colder months!
1 drop Thieves
1 drop Peppermint
1 drop Lemon
1 cup of your favorite herbal tea
Drop oils on the tea bag (so that they don’t just float on top) and drink when you need an immunity boost.
