Save your money and please, please, please don’t ingest oils.
So if you’re thinking about spending loads of money investing into the massively popular pyramid selling oils (that shall remain nameless but we know you know who they are), then think again. Honestly considering the quality of their oils it certainly isn’t worth it, don’t believe the sales hype, because that is all it is sales hype.
I found this great article by Katherine Maslen (and another by the fabulous author of The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy S. Battaglia) which explains why you shouldn’t believe everything you’re told. Honestly considering the quality of their oils it certainly isn’t worth it.
My note to add: Please, please don’t ingest essential oils unless a fully qualified Aromatherapy practitioner advises it. My sister recently went to one of the selling parties and I was horrified to hear that the lady running the event said to a pregnant woman it was fine to ingest essential oils. She could poison her baby!! and herself! Essential Oils are incredibly concentrated volatile compounds that are often the basis of modern medicine drugs today, so please seek professional advise if you’re thinking about ingesting it and especially if you’re pregnant.
Another example is an acquaintance of mine had been ingesting a couple of eucalyptus oil drops a day for years to help combat colds and boost his immune system, so he thought. Turns out this poor guy who rarely drank and lead a healthy life now has liver cirrhosis, you guessed it from the eucalyptus oils.
These wonderful volatile oils are an amazing gift to the world, but they need to be treated with respect and handled with care and love for your body.
