Safety and Dangers of Essential Oils

Dangers of Essential Oils

Essential Oils can be dangerous. People selling the essential oils for companies create articles and guides in order to sell more oils. This can make it difficult to find good truthful information about safe ways to use oils. Additionally, members selling dōTERRA and Young Living will often falsely claim that oils can treat conditions or cure diseases.

It can be difficult to find the truth about essential oils even if you do careful research. This is because of the way search engines and ranking algorithms work. They surface articles and websites based on how large numbers of people act — but in this case, large numbers of people are working to sell more oil.
