Essential Oils Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS)

Many of dōTERRA's oils are safe for ingestion.  In fact, all essential oils that are identified by the FDA as Safe For Consumption (that is: Generally Recognized as Safe or GRAS) can be taken as a dietary supplement, to promote physical well-being.

Some oils (e.g.: lemon, grapefruit, wild orange,etc.) are even more effective when taken orally.

Things to remember when using essential oils as dietery supplements:

Please note: dōTERRA's oils are certified pure therapeutic-grade®, making them very safe.  Most other essential oils on the market today are not produced to such high standards, and some may pose serious risks, if taken internally.

The information here was developed specifically for dōTERRA®'s oils.  However, sensitivity is highly individualized, so you need to test the oils first, to see how you will respond to them.  Also, there are special circumstances under which more care should be given to the use of the oils.  If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.  Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears and sensitive areas.
