The third and final way we use these little miracle bottles is by taking them internally.
Many oils are labeled safe for internal use, but just like not all plants can safely be to eat and not all essential oils can be used internally.
Internal use can be a heated topic, mostly because there is a wide range of oil quality available on the market, and many are rightly labeled “not for internal use”.
What people don't realize that they already consume essential oils when they eat many foods. For example, lots of bakeries use food--grade essential oils to punch up the flavor of baked goods.
Ever enjoy a lemon bar? You probably ate essential oils.
Our Ningxia Red is power packed with Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, and Yuzu essential oils.
Because essential oils are way more potent than the whole plant material, only a tiny amount is needed when taken internally to get the full flavor and/ or health benefits. When safety guidelines are followed, essential oils can be used internally for incredible benefits.
Only ingest Young Living essential oils purchased directly from the temperature- controlled warehouse at youngliving.com. Nobody can vouch for what's really in those bottles from Amazon, eBay, or anywhere else you picked them up.
There are two ways to ingest oils
The first method of internal use is through food and water. Remember to always use glass, stainless steel, or ceramic when adding oils to the drink of choice. Never use plastic or Styrofoam, since those can leech chemicals. These powerful drops are programmed made by God to purify... Put a citrus oil on a Styrofoam cup and watch them in action!
If you love to cook, you're gonna be excited at the fun recipes you can create! Experiment with adding oils to your smoothies, your fruit and veggie salads, your baked goods, your homemade salad dressings, and so much more! The essential oils have no shelf life, like your herbs, and the potency and taste will amaze you. Such a savings to your pantry!
The second method of internal use is by ingesting capsules. Yes, you read that right, you can make your own capsules, and it's not as daunting as it might sound! Using capsules allows you to not only bypass any unpleasant tastes, but it also enables the oils to reach that correct targeted area of the body before dissolving to allow for greater absorption.
We use these for slimming, seasonal challenges, bodily discomfort, boosting immunity, and more! If you would like to learn more about what we call ‘stomp on it,’ reach out to me for my text class walking you through it.
Here's how to make a capsule
Purchase the vegetable capsules from Young Living (or grab some at your local health food store), open one up and add your essential oils into the longer part, then fill the rest with some carrier oil to help it digest better in your tummy, Close it up until it ‘clicks’ and take it with a glass of water.
When taking oils internally, have a small snack that is rich in healthy fats (nuts, avocados). This will help you avoid burping up the oils. This is especially important when taking Inner Defense or "hot" oils. Adding a carrier oil to the capsule, or putting the oil in the freezer will also make a difference! (watch out because your tummy will feel cold after swallowing them!)
Remember the center hole on the top of your bottle is NOT where the oil comes out. That is an patented airhole. The oil comes out the little hole on the side. So, watch your aim or lean the bottle on the top of the capsule. The more you do it, the easier it gets.
If you can eat a lemon...
There is nothing added to our oils! Smells exactly like cutting open an orange, or lemon, or... because that is what it is! The power of the nutrients in the rind.
In order to comply with FDA regulations in the US, Young Living has specifically labeled oils that can be ingested as dietary supplements as Vitality oils. These white label bottles contain the SAME OIL inside as their color counterpart labeled for aromatic and topical use.
