05 May Can you possibly overdose on essential oils?
Here’s the thing with essential oils: a little goes a long way.
There’s a reason for the reducer insert on the oil bottles. True, high quality essential oils are pure concentrates. The higher quality the oil the more potent it is and smaller amounts are required. I always err on the side of using SMALL DOSES MORE FREQUENTLY throughout the day. There’s absolutely no need to use high doses (more than 20 drops at a time) of any essential oils because they are highly concentrated. So yes it is possible to overdose on essential oils just as it’s possible to overdose on water and bananas and drugs.
Stick to this rule of thumb with essential oils: more is not always better or less is the new more 😉
