    Just because someone says you can take internally doesn't mean you should. I would not advocate it to anyone to try. Remember DoTerra and YL got into all kinds of trouble for telling folks to take their EO's internally.

    Every case of illness or trouble due to misuse of essential oils is reported by the er doctor to the FDA...we do not want the use of essential oils to be regulated by govnt, or essential oils be by pharmacy prescription only...! Ghaa!

    What is your source? I cannot find anything about mandatory reporting by ER physicians of EO related incidents. I do see the wisdom of it, but am not finding anything verify this statement, however. There are a number of mechanisms within hospital settings for documenting, investigating and reporting many types of incidents, so I wonder if what you heard was something about an internal mechanism, rather than a national reporting mandate.

    For others outside the US, the FDA - it is the Food & Drug Administration, which is a regulating agency in the US, and they loosely regulate essential oils only as pertains to aromatherapy. But of course, they do investigate any drug claims of EOs.

    Edit: https://www.fda.gov/cosmetics/productsingredients/products/ucm127054.htm

    FDA Adverse Event Reporting: https://www.fda.gov/drugs/guidancec...n/surveillance/adversedrugeffects/default.Htm

    I don't see EO's listed, therein.

    I looked up reports of Adverse Events related to essential oils in their database and found only 3 cases reporting; one in 2005, one in 2012, one in 2018. So that doesn't sound like they are all being reported.

    It may work but I don't know if I could stomach it!

    My information was from a class on aromatherapy and essential oils for therapeutic use. I did have a file on many reports of adverse reactions with essential oils due to improper use but now I cant find it and in all honesty I dont know who these reports were reported to-class was 2016. Since the FDA has decided that it has no interest in essential oils medical applications and considers them a cosmetic perhaps reports arent reported to the public. Or, as you pointed out, these reports arent sent to the FDA but rather kept internally. I would really be interested in finding out exactly....what is reported, how and to whom.

    I work in an ED and asked a couple physicians and that is false. They are not required to report EO use .

    Ok, then I am mistaken--please accept my apologies for disseminating false information! I think our hearts are all in the right place anyway in the larger picture--making sure what we do is safe for our friends, family, us, customers or whoever uses what we make.

    Absolutely. That’s why I make no claims.
