A Word About the Safety of Essential Oils
When using essential oils, it is very important to understand that all oils are not created equal. Please be sure that you purchase therapeutic grade essential oils that are certified pure from a reputable source. Many oils found in stores and online are filled with cheap filler oils and some are even toxic. Not all oils are suitable for internal use. Please do your homework before using any essential oil brand. Please note that all essential oils are not intended to be used internally.
