Is this safe to ingest? I’d like to add it to my drinking water if possible.

BEST ANSWER: Great question!

Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly.

All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. They are of the quality to be taken internally. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance. Follow the link below for help finding an aromatherapist.

Is this a cold-pressed essential oil or a steam-distilled essential oil?
