Eating Essential Oils: How to Stay Healthy

Please note that not all essential oils can be consumed! We use therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living Essential Oils. You can learn more about the oils or order them here.

We might not look like your average alchemists, but when it comes to our bodies and our health, we like taking matters into our own hands. That's why we were downright giddy to discover edible essential oils. 

For those unfamiliar with nature's most potent juice, essential oils are the purest form of any plant that is extracted through steam distillation, cold pressed and bottled. 

Not only can these little potions be spread all over your body or diffused into the air to help relax, energize or heal you -- they can be dropped into capsules for change that comes from the inside out. 

At the start of a particularly busy week or when we sense the first signs of a cold, sore throat, ache, we tap our essential oils into the clear vegetable capsules and gulp them down daily to absorb these powerful liquids.

If swallowing is not your thing, a few drops of these oils can also be dropped into your palms, rubbed together and inhaled for similar effects. 

>> Thieves essential oil maintains a healthy immune system. Inspired by a historic blend of clove, rosemary and other botanicals, this oil clears the body of bacteria and boosts immunity and overall health.

>> Lemon essential oil supports, clears and boosts the lungs and sinuses. It is 100% pure and comes directly from the peel. It takes 75 lemons to make one 15-mL bottle of lemon oil.

>> Lavender essential oil is soothing and refreshing. It helps relax the nervous system and can be used alongside many beauty products. 

>> Peppermint essential oil is one of the most well-known herbs for supporting digestion. It keeps the intestines healthy and soothes gastrointestinal action.

Again, please note that not all essential oils can be consumed! We use therapeutic-grade essential oils from Young Living Essential Oils. You can learn more about the oils or order them here.
