A frequent and considerable concern regarding use of essentials oils in a clinical setting is that they are not FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) regulated and cannot claim to treat disease. In a medical setting, they may be used only for specific indications, and the language surrounding their use must be monitored. For example, essential oils can be said to “minimize comfort” but not “treat pain”; they can be used to “promote a sense of calm and well- being”, but not “treat anxiety”.
Since essentials oils manufactures are not regulated by FAD or any other regulatory body, it is the responsibility of the practitioner to investigate any supplier from witch an essential oil is obtained to ensure that the oil has a known botanical origin, is of high quality, and has been tested for chemical makeup between batches. Without standardization, it’s impossible to guarantee the therapeutic value and safety of any product.
You must always be sure that you are using high quality essential oils, and not oils that were intended for perfume or flavoring. Most oils can be safely used at home without special training. If you want to try essential oils I strongly recommend the same company as I use: Click here!
