Keep asking questions
The Netflix documentary UnWell has certainly gotten people talking about essential oils. For some, it has raised concern, for others it has raised more questions, which has caused confusion.
People are asking can I ingest essential oils? Remember, it’s not a case of can you. You need to ask deeper questions.
Can you ingest? Some will tell you no way, others will say of course you can. The better questions would be ‘should I ingest’ or ‘Is this a safe and effective way to support my health concern’.
Asking the right people the deeper questions will illicit a different response as well. When it comes to essential oils, speak with an appropriately qualified aromatherapist.
When we start asking better questions, the quality of the responses we get improves, which will in turn improve the outcomes we receive.
