What about internal use of essential oil? NAHA, one of the top aromatherapy schools in the US, doesn’t advocate essential oils for internal use. Why? Most oils companies don’t carry any GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) essential oils which have been cleared by the FDA. NAHA also bases a lot of their decisions on the British model, which advocates topical use only. Many of the British studies are flawed, for example, done at extremely high doses or in ways the oils aren’t used, like pouring a bottle inside the body. Young Living uses all three methods, British, French, and German. The French have been safely using some essential oils internally for decades. Young Living has created a Vitality line with distinctive labels so you can easily recognize which oils are safe to take internally.
Is all this a bit overwhelming? The best way to get started in a Young Living Essential Oils business: with a Young Living Premium Starter Kit. It’s the only thing on the Young Living website that’s over 50% off—that’s a $341.08 value for $160, plus shipping and tax. That’s quite a value. It comes with 11 bottles of essential oils, a diffuser and a lifetime wholesale membership which gets you 24% off of all Young Living oils and products for life.
