Is spruce essential oil safe for internal use?
« on: June 29, 2018, 08:38:23 AM »
Hello, new here.
I would like to use spruce (Picea abies) essential oil internally. I do not intend to treat a specific condition and I am a healthy person, but I have a strong intuitive desire to do exactly this  :D However, I read that internal use of essential oils is often discouraged.  So I want to make sure it is safe. If I have Picea abies 100% essential oil, how much/how often is safe to use per os? Assuming some diluted form, of course.  I tried 8  drops in one day and felt no negative effect at all, but long term use would perhaps require caution. Also, would the part of the plant matter in this case? I would prefer leaf extract. I was unable to find any reliable source for this kind of information, could you please help? :)
