It is not safe to ingest essential oils, either straight into the mouth or diluting in water, cooking, smoothies, making raw foods etc. This is a high-risk and potentially dangerous practice that has adverse effects and lead to a possible lifetime of sensitisation - I do not encourage in my practice in any form, nor do I use essential oils in this way myself. The use of various inhalation methods & applying topically is more effective and safe when used as directed. Never use neat, especially for babies, toddlers & children. Essential oils should be used under the strict guidelines of a qualified Aromascience Practitioner / Aromatherapist / Aromatologist.
A recent book called 'The Unspoken Truth About Essential Oils' by Stacey Haluka & Kayla Fioravanti s an insightful read on what can happen if essential oils are used with these current trends of high-risk methods. Available in hard copy or at the Kindle Store

Aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils to promote and maintain health and vitality to the body, mind and spirit. By using specific blends, the oils are applied to the body and then absorbed into the blood, lymphatic & nervous systems. These oils can last in the body for up to a week, depending on the blend used.
