Q: Can your essential oils be used internally?
A: No, we do not recommend internal use.
Using essential oils aromatically, topically, and other external methods will provide the best and safest results, but ingesting essential oils internally actually will provide neither the most effective nor the safest health benefits.
We understand that some major brands in the current market do promote the internal use of essential oils, but they may very well be making such claims haphazardly simply for money-making motives. But not us at LAGUNAMOON™. There is just too much misguided information being spread by these unethical suppliers, greedy sales agents, and misinformed “ambassadors” of MLM Multi-Level Marketing companies about the supposedly “safe” use of essential oils internally.
No matter who tells you otherwise, essential oils are best used aromatically and through other external methods only, and not internally.
- Essential oils are just too concentrated for ingestion.
- Essential oils can potentially damage our internal organs.
- Taking essential oils internally is one of the least efficient methods of application.
Therefore, for your safe and effective use, we recommend that you use LAGUNAMOON™ Essential Oils externally only.
Q: Can your essential oils be used topically?
A: Yes, our essential oils can be used topically, but they must first be diluted with one of our carrier oils. Lavender and Tea tree oils, for example, are commonly accepted as safe for “neat” application but we recommend doing a test on a small patch of skin prior to use to rule out any sensitivity with each essential oil.
Q: Is it safe to use your essential oils during pregnancy?
A: Educating yourself on using essential oils during pregnancy can be difficult, as there isn’t a lot of information available on the subject. Pregnant and nursing mothers do not want to offer themselves, nor their children up for research in this area. Still, using essential oils in pregnancy and breastfeeding can be beneficial, but there are safety issues which should be assessed. For more information, please see this link:

Q: Can your essential oils really provide health benefits?

Q: What is a carrier oil or base oil?
A: Carrier oil, also known as base oil or vegetable oil, is used to dilute essential oils and absolutes before they are applied to the skin in massage and aromatherapy. They are so named because they carry the essential oil onto the skin. Carrier oils do not contain a concentrated aroma, unlike essential oils, though some, such as olive, have a mild distinctive smell. Neither do they evaporate like essential oils, which are more volatile.
Q: How do I use each specific essential oil for the greatest health benefits?
A: There are just more ways in which we can use our essential oils to give us health benefits than we can describe in just a few sentences. How to use section in product page will give you reasonably good guidance.
