Which essential oils are safe to ingest?

With so many options on the essential oils landscape, it may be difficult to know which oils are safe to ingest. But fear not, Young Living makes it really easy to decipher what is safe to put in our food, drinks, and capsules!

Welcome to Young Living’s Vitality Dietary Essential Oils, the only collection of over 40 certified non-GMO essential oils specifically dedicated for dietary use. These little bottles are labeled with a white “Vitality” label, meaning that they are labeled to be used as supplements and therefore safe to ingest. How easy is that?!

Now that doesn’t mean you should toss in a teaspoon of Lemon Vitality Oil in your next lemon cake recipe. Essential Oils are HIGHLY concentrated, so a little bit goes a long way! Follow the instructions on the label and do not exceed the amount listed on the label. Remember, too much of a good thing is a bad thing.

One more thing I’d like to mention is that quality of oils really matters here – you want to be sure you have 100% therapeutic grade oils with no fillers or toxic chemicals added. I mention this, because in the US, essential oils can be labeled as “100% Pure Essential Oils” while containing only 5% essential oil and up to 95% fillers, extenders, and toxic chemicals. I’m saying it again because it is SO important – quality matters!! I personally use Young Living Essential Oils because of their transparency in production, quality, and their Seed to Seal commitment.

Once you order some Vitality Essential Oils, take a look at our growing recipe collection for fun ways to add a little vitality to your life! (See what I did there? LOL)
