Greetings everyone, I just wanted to let you know a small section Titled
Internal and Oral Use as a Dietary Supplement.
All essential oils that are Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) or certified as Food additives (FA) by the FDA may be safely taken internally as dietary supplements (see GRAS and FA lists in Appendix B). <***you be supprised what actual goes into our foods***> But ingesting essential oils should be done under the direction of a Knowledgeable health professional. <*** most doctors haven't got a clue about this stuff, so find someone who knows (most young living persons can tell you from first hand experience) and get the EODR book ASAP.***>
In fact, many oils are actually More Effective when taken Orally in very small amounts. Essential oils should always be Diluted in vegetable oil, agave nectar, or rice milk prior to ingestion. <*** I don't always dilute oils I use for internal use, and when I do dilute I use COCONUT OIL and GHEE most the time because they are most pure and easy on the body. Frankly, my heart warm and relaxed when I use these oils, nest best that I use are HEMP (hemp is more nutritious than any fish oil on the market for essential fatty acids. Most buddist monks live on hemp seed and water only for a couple weeks a year, I do no recomend you do that) and FLAX is good to. ***> More or less dilution may be required, depending on how strong the oil is. MOre potent oils, such as cinnamon, oregano, lemongrass, and thyme, will require for more dilution than relatively mild oils, and very mild oils like lavendar or lemon may not need any dilution at all.
As a general rule, dilute 1 drop of essential oil in 1 teaspoon of agave nectar or in at least 4 ounces of a beverage. <*** Dilute just before use***> if you dilute with this and that oil or what ever, there is great chances of minimises the healing properties of the oil.***>
Usually no more than 2 or 3 drops should be ingested at one time (during any 4-8 hour period). Because essential oils are so concentrated, 1-2 drops are often sufficient to achieve significant benefits. <***I pack around at least 1 .5 ounce bottle of peppermint oil to use as a breath freshener / mouthwash / toothpaste, it is great for digestion and if anyone ever gets to cold or gets a fever, this peppermint will help right away. I have heard of 106 degree fevers breaking and body temperature returning to normal temperatures within minutes.***>
Essential oils should not be given as dietary supplements to children under 6 years of age. Parents should exerices caution before orally administering essential oils to any child, and again, oils should always be diluted prior to ingestion.
Essential oils are extremely Concentrated, so they should be KEPT out of reach of infants and children. If a large Quantity of oil is ingested at one time (more then 5 drops) Contact your physician and a Poison Control Center immediatly.
<***Prevetion first: I would recommend that you do lock up the majority of oils (there are a few I would teach everyone how to use and keep with the first aid kit), some can be very harmful or even fatal in large dose, Also some essential oils are very pricy $$ (for instance 5000 pounds of rose petals are required to make 1 pound of rose oil)(imagine how many roses you give someone when you give a 5ml bottle.) Actually essential oils are priceless and can save lives when used correctly. Essential oils are 100 to 1000 times the potency of the herbs themselves, thus they work faster. Essential oils work better when they are processed better too, for there is a fine Art behind the harvesting and distilling process. ***>
<*** Also have some phone numbers of doctors that regularly use the oils. Chances are in your favor to go to a professional in this field than to go to someone who has never even heard of essential oils, what to speak of knowing the intricacies.***>
<*** Also if you look into every authorized spritual scripture in the world you will witness plenty of accounts related to pure oils. Actually the EODR book has every quote from the Bible related to this essential oils, and it is amazing to see how many quotes refer to the essential oils of plants as Blood. (many people misinterpret this blood as blood from animals and then they try to say meat eating is ok. Be very careful about this subject and please see http://www.DrDay.com to learn more about vegetarian diet. Thank you so much for your patience.***>
