When and How to Use Essential Oils Internally
Whether you use oils for yourself and your family or you are a doTERRA Wellness Advisor, you’ll want to know, understand, and be able to answer questions about using essential oils internally. Among the wide collection of individual or single oils offered by dōTERRA, 37 of the oils are safe to consume internally.
This means that in addition to putting these oils on your skin or in your diffuser, you can consume the oils directly. How you do this may vary as some oils have an application as an ingredient in recipes for cooking, others may be mixed in a favorite non-alcoholic drink, and by using the veggie capsules offered by dōTERRA, you also have the option to take the oils as you would any other capsule.
