Jen suggests using Young Living Essential Oils only in food as they are distilled in food grade distillers and bottled in food grade bottles with no chemicals added from seed to seal. DO NOT ingest any other essential without checking whether it is food grade and grown and bottled without ANY chemicals or preservatives. Please visit my store for more information.
