Using Essential Oils Internally

Be very mindful of the oils you are ingesting. Make sure they are labeled as safe for dietary use.

Essential oils that have been tested and labeled as food-grade are safe to take in a capsule, add to your water, or use to flavor foods.

Essential oils are composed of powerful plant constituents that can benefit many areas of the body, including internal systems.

If your body needs support internally, a few drops of essential oils in a vegetable capsule is the way to go.

4 Essential Oils to Supplement Your Diet

Lemon Vitality

If you’ve been on Pinterest for even a second, you’ve seen the lemon water craze (and maybe even rolled your eyes at it like I did). But this internet fad is actually rooted in ancient medicine. A glass of warm lemon water in the morning can help to cleanse your body and make your digestive system more efficient.

Thieves Vitality

Thieves is a blend of clove, lemon, and cinnamon bark that supports a healthy immune system. Teachers really love this blend! It tastes pretty strong, so I take it inside of a clear vegetable capsule when my immune system needs help.

Peppermint Vitality

Peppermint is especially soothing when you have stomach discomfort; I relied on it when I was pregnant. Just add a drop to a big glass of water or to warm herbal tea to get the benefits of peppermint.

Citrus Fresh Vitality

For people who struggle to stay hydrated, this citrus oil blend flavors your water and gives your body a cleansing boost, too.
