  2. We would not advise experimenting with ingesting essential oils (which are highly concentrated) without the guidance of a Certified Aromatherapist. You can find plenty of informative books on aromatherapy for how to use them, what their properties are and how to safely create your own blends for topical or aromatic use. You can also look on-line for courses offered in your area.
