SAFE USE OF AROMATHERAPY OILS – ADVICE FROM IAHS

In response to the extremely unsafe advice from some U.S. based aromatherapy companies whose reps in Ireland are promoting the ingestion of essential oils orally ~

  • Advising untrained individuals to ingest essential oils orally is hazardous and illegal in Ireland
  • Claiming it is safe practice due to an oil being “Therapeutic Grade Certified” is completely false
  • There is no such industry standard as “Therapeutic Grade” or “Medical Grade Certified”
  • Orally ingesting essential oils poses genuine hazards and possible toxicity

For accurate advice on how to use Aromatherapy essential oils safely please refer to an accredited Aromatherapist, The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (the largest aromatherapy specific association in the world) or trained staff in any IAHS Store.
