    I just rubbed some peppermint essential oil on my gums after reading that it could help with stomach issues. Then I kind of freaked out wondering if I got the right kind…thanks for the info

    All of the cases mentioned the people were using FAR too much of the product. Of course they are going to have an adverse reaction!!!

  4. Vanille Fatale on May 24, 2021 at 3:29 am

    Don’t ever do this

  5. Guillermo Boxing on May 24, 2021 at 3:29 am

    You talk to much

    People who sell DoTerra are so freaking dumb. They seriously think they are doctors. Example: They recommend peppermint for acid reflux. Peppermint relaxes the LES, which makes acid reflux worse!!

    Wow..that’s so many drops..and it’s not for everyone..

    You didn’t say what to drink with Oregano oil

    Except for the allergic reaction, the people’s negative reaction can be explained by body toxic overload caused by the essential oils, not poisoning. I’ve drunk essential oils of all types, including grapefruit oil, with never any problems after my body was used to them over a long period of time. I began gradually because when I first began my body was so toxic that just a small amount of any essential oil was a problem. In fact even aromatherapy was toxic: coughing, gagging, etc. Other than allergies taking essential oils orally proved no problem as long as I started slowly beginning with aromatherapy first. Yes, oil does not mix with water, but the oil forms droplets in water and spreads out thus weakening its effects. I haven’t been ill for 6 years using essential oils. Before that I was ill with sinus, flus, colds every year.

    I have been taking essential oils from young living for years and my family and all my friends also, and never have they or I had anything. If it’s pure without stuff in them and water is not an absorbent. In food or mixed in other oils. In this day and age oils are seen like this none essential danger. In the old days they were used as medicine. There are ways to use cloves and other oils as medicine. Dilution in other oils is key. Cloves mixed with coconut oil or olive oil is perfect dabbed on a teething gums or a tooth ache or just a whole clove in general which has been used for thousands of years as a treatment. Dilution in water is a joke.

    Oils mix with oils. Or in food. Added to your food is not gonna harm you. Dropping straight oils in your water or mouth… Not a good idea

    great info!

  13. Ahmad Qagi on May 24, 2021 at 3:39 am

    I drink one drop by accident and I am really worried
    That’s why I looked up this video I drink one Drop of eucalyptus oil

  14. Brett hastings on May 24, 2021 at 3:42 am

    So if you can’t drink essential oils then why are the majority of them made of edible things?

  15. William T. Dudley on May 24, 2021 at 3:43 am

    Thanks for the info. What about mixing certain essential oils and hot water like for a tea? It seems that they mix better with hot water. I was sipping on a cup of hot water with one drop of lemon essential oil while watching your video and stopped immediately 🙂 as this was my first time and I thought I should look into it.

  16. Freshta Mohamady on May 24, 2021 at 3:43 am

    What about peppermint oil? I see people putting two drops under their tongue abs also one or two drops in the water with fresh lemons. ? Is this safe ? It’s also used for cancer patients according to The Truth About Cancer please give me some feedback

  17. Teecee Cam on May 24, 2021 at 3:44 am

    Ok.i thought that essential oils.werent actually oils at all???

  18. Henna Soda on May 24, 2021 at 3:44 am

    I have drank Water and lemon essential oil and nothing happened to me

  19. Fighting Quads on May 24, 2021 at 3:46 am

    No one sees a common theme here, this Doterra company and the fact that these people used an incorrect carrier. Infuse am organic non gmo oil from a reputable source with organic honey and dissolve in hot water with tea, and you will have no issues, I do it all the time,. What you’re saying is completely untrue. How is consuming essential oil harmful when there are literally dozens of recipes online utilizing essential oils as an ingredient ingredient to the dish. Additionally there are dozens of ready to eat prepared foods that contain essential oils. Thousands of people, if not more people consume oil oregano daily with only positive health benefits. If a plant is distilled down to it’s essential oil, how does it then become toxic?

  20. Freedom Educator on May 24, 2021 at 3:49 am

    Did you do the other episodes how to dissolve with milk and in a bath? Thank you

  21. Tiggy Taggy on May 24, 2021 at 3:49 am

    I am taking peppermint oil without even mixing with water…..I feel burning sensation in my throat which I enjoy…..after watching this I will never touch it

  22. Beb on May 24, 2021 at 3:51 am

  23. Lillian Bryne on May 24, 2021 at 3:53 am

  24. Sheesh Neeshh on May 24, 2021 at 3:53 am

    I bought oil of oregano in the pill form a year ago & it burned my stomach SOO bad. I regret taking it. I’m still working to get my intestines back to normal.

  25. Koriander Yander on May 24, 2021 at 3:54 am

    But a dr told me I can use one drop of essential cinnamon oil to drink. A single drop.

  26. Benji_ on May 24, 2021 at 3:56 am

    I told my mom this when she told me to drink digestzen for my heartburn, "you wouldnt tell me to chew on poison ivy would you?"

  27. Joanna Julep on May 24, 2021 at 4:00 am

    HI GUYS MY NAME IS KENNA

    Hahahaha so fun. Why so fun

  28. Raymond Saldana on May 24, 2021 at 4:01 am

    You may have saved my life. I was just about to try some frankincense.

  29. whysosirius on May 24, 2021 at 4:02 am

    Cannabis oil is an essential oil

  30. RoTary PoWer - RX7 on May 24, 2021 at 4:02 am

    She has a lot to learn

  31. Eo12 124 on May 24, 2021 at 4:03 am

    Essential oil MLM hunbots will tell you, “You’re just detoxing. If you’re sick, the oils are not hurting you, it’s that these oils are detoxing you to heal you.”

  32. Achibokikoy EATS on May 24, 2021 at 4:03 am

    One drop is enough because its very potent. One drop of lemon EO goes a long way with 1 liter of water.

  33. mike camfield on May 24, 2021 at 4:03 am

    I would argue that ingestion of essential oils works really well. Only 1 drop does it. I’d be willing to bet 100% of these people took too much

  34. TheAwakenedINFJ on May 24, 2021 at 4:08 am

    2:10 No shit?
    We do this while eating, living the "normal life" ALL THE TIME, mixing oil and water, drinking and eating cooked foods or cold raw food with oil on.

  35. Ruben Whitter on May 24, 2021 at 4:09 am

    Isn’t Star Anise used in cooking? And absinthe? Menthol is literally peppermint aswell.

  36. Kayla Marie on May 24, 2021 at 4:09 am

    I put clove oil mixed with grape seed oil on my chest and have been having problems with my mucous membranes in my chest for over a year it is getting better but very slow

  37. Lora Macks on May 24, 2021 at 4:10 am

    Young Living essential oils are safe for ingestion! They’re big difference is Seed to Seal. They plant, harvest and process all ingredients for they’re oils. They control everything that goes into them and are the purist form

  38. Tasha Tasha on May 24, 2021 at 4:12 am

    It sounds like the oil from the company she is mentioning is the problem not the oils

  39. John Pickett on May 24, 2021 at 4:15 am

    I’m very glad I came across this. There is another person promoting ingesting of essential oils. She said she puts it in capsules or mix "hot " oils with a " carrier" oil …like coconut oil ,olive oil ,etc..

  40. Earmuff Hugger on May 24, 2021 at 4:15 am

    The oregano oil tincture I use has alcohol in it so it mixes with the water.
    I use it for digestive issues.

  41. Elisee Rudahigwa Nshimyumuremyi on May 24, 2021 at 4:16 am

    Swallow them responsibly!! I don’t wanna burn my stomachHhhhh

  42. MalcolmShadowban on May 24, 2021 at 4:16 am

    Thank you baby, I was about to do it. (FreshThyme lemon oil) I’m kinda embarrassed….

  43. dohoodratstuff withfriends on May 24, 2021 at 4:18 am

    How about Boswellia with a Carrier oil to fight cancer cells

  44. Brad Morehouse on May 24, 2021 at 4:18 am

    peppermint oil is used in mint chocolate. peppermint oil is fine in small amounts. They are meds and this video is not 100% accurate

  45. Kei on May 24, 2021 at 4:20 am

    Clove oil is what’s used in fishkeeping to humanely sedate and euthanize very sick or mortally injured fish. People should definitely never, ever attempt to drink it. That’s scary.

  46. Kayla Marie on May 24, 2021 at 4:21 am

    I’ve heard the only one you can drink is frankensense

  47. MarJam Esquire on May 24, 2021 at 4:26 am

    I took two packets of Young Living’s NingXia and had diarrhea for four days. It does have lemon oil in it. Only rice and Imodium stopped my diarrhea
