Can I ingest Mt Retour Essential Oils? These essential oils are certified organic and 100% pure. Essential oils can be used in many different therapeutic ways, however, we do not recommend ingesting essential oils without consulting a professional who has suitable training in either pharmacology, physiology, aromatherapy chemistry, medical herbalism or a GP. This is due to the fact that without proper training or knowledge, ingesting essential oils can cause serious health issues. We understand that there are some companies advertising the fact that their oils can be ingested, however, we feel this is irresponsible. Without knowing someone’s health, both present and historically, no company can accurately advise a client on what oils to ingest and in what quantities. True essential oils are extremely potent and as with anything ingested, certain amounts and certain oils can be hazardous including but not limited to burning your oesophagus and damaging or putting undue stress on internal organs such as the liver and kidneys. Please seek the advice of a professional as listed above.
Are the Mt Retour Certified Organic Essential oils water soluable? The quick answer is no. No pure Essential oil is water soluble. To create a water soluble oil the oil must be rectified and have a solublising agent added (making it no longer pure). Most fragrant oils are water soluble, however, if you come across an Essential oil that claims to be ‘water soluble’ you can be guaranteed it isn’t pure. You can add an additional solubliser or dispersant yourself.
These oils should not be used straight but rather used with a carrier oil for massage or in water for a bath or diffuser. If you have a medical condition or are pregnant or nursing, please check with your naturopath, aromatherapist or medical professional before purchasing.
