It’s very easy to print a sticker that says “100% Pure” on a bottle of essential oil. If you’re using a brand that says “for external” or “topical use only,” doesn’t that make you wonder how pure it really is? Shouldn’t you be able to ingest lemon oil? Orange oil? Peppermint? After all, you eat an orange, I’m sure you’ve had fresh lemon juice….
One of the reasons I LOVE Dōterra oils is that they ARE pure enough to ingest….well many of them! If an oil is ingest-able, it has dietary info, just like “regular food.” If it is not, it does not have that label. Every bottle has a batch number that you can put into the system to learn about its purity and quality. EVERY. ONE. All of the products are also tested 3rd party.
I have a particular love of citrus, and thus often use lemon, grapefruit, lime, and wild orange in my water. These fruits are great for immunity boosting, stomach health, depression and stress. Of course they taste yummy as well! Just a few drops of each makes for a refreshing summer drink, minus chemicals and dyes.
It’s also important to note to mix your oils in a stainless steel or glass as it is unsafe to use them in plastic. Let’s be honest, I’m sure many of you have read the many dangers and issues with drinking from plastic. My friend Ashley over at Planning Made Easy makes these fabulous glitter tumblers! She has a number of glitter and design options, as well as ceramic or stainless steel.
You can also take your oils in veggie caps! I’m not a fan of how all of the oils taste, so I will put them in the caps so that I can still reap their benefits!
