Many of dōTERRA®'s essential oils are safe for ingestion.  In fact, all essential oils that are identified as Safe For Consumption can be taken as a dietary supplement, to promote physical well-being.

Some oils (e.g.: valerian, lemon, grapefruit, orange, nutmeg, tangerine, etc.) are even more effective when taken orally.

Things to remember when using essential oils as dietery supplements:

But, please bear this in mind: dōTERRA® Essential Oils have always been CPTG®, certified-pure-therapeutic-grade.  Most other essential oils on the market today are not produced to such high standards, and may pose serious risks if taken internally. 

The information here was developed specifically for dōTERRA®'s oils, using GC (gas chromatography) analysis and MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) information.  However, sensitivity is highly individualized, so you need to test the oils first, to see how you will respond to them.
