Updated: Jun 28, 2023

Part 3 of a 3 Part Series

Educating yourself before using Essential oils is so important.  Using them properly will not only save you money but also you will get the right benefits from them.  It is important that you use the very best quality oils when using them in all 3 ways.  Aromatically, Topically and internally.  You need to know you are getting 100% pure oils. To read more about why Doterra is the leader in Essential oil safety

Internal Use of Doterra Essential oils?  Where to start.

There is a lot of different opinions about taking Essential oils internally.  First things First and the most important advice I have to give you.  NOT ALL OILS are safe to take INTERNALLY!  You must be sure your oils are safe.  I ONLY recommend Doterra oils and even some of those are not meant for internal use.  How do you tell if it has a supplement facts label on the side of the doterra bottle.  That means it is safe for internal use.  Below you will find a list of oils that should not be taken internally.

Oils that should NEVER be take internally are.

Wintergreen, White Fir, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, Arborvitae.

Blends: Peace, Passion  Cheer, Console, Forgive and Motivate.  Breathe, Intune, Holiday Joy or Holiday Peace, Citrus Bliss, Elevation, Aromatouch, Terrashield, Serenity, Clear skin, Deep Blue, Past Tense, Clary Calm andWhisper.

Serenity is one most people think they can ingest.  The oil is a no but the soft gels are very different.  You of course can ingest the soft gels.

There are several reasons to ingest Doterra Essential oils.

Cellular support, digestive support, cardiovascular support, immunity support, tension management, sleep support.

Taking oils internally can be done several ways.  A drop under your tongue, in a glass of water, in a soft gel or adding to a recipe. It really depends are if you want to taste them or not.  Adding oils to water is a quick way to ge them in your system of under your tongue.  When using soft gels I usually put a drop or 2 of the oils and then fill with olive oil as a carrier and tummy protector.  NEVER use FCO (fractionated coconut oil) in gel caps it is not a consumable oil. Solid refined coconut oil can be ingested.

So lets talk about some oils to take for certain support?

DDR Prime, Frankincense, Wild Orange, Lemongrass, Thyme, Clove, Cinnamon and Sandal wood.
