Safe Internal Use with Pranarom Mini Caps
Internal Use Basics
When taking essential oils internally, you want to remember that our digestive tract is quite sensitive: it has billions of microbiota living there that we don't want to disrupt. Plus, our digestive tract is lined with mucous membranes, which we don't want to irritate.
Because of this, essential oils should always be diluted before ingesting, and they dilute best in carrier oils or other fats. Making sure they are well diluted first will ensure that your mouth and upper digestive tract are not irritated by the essential oils' chemical constituents.
Also, you should always ingest at very low dosages - think fractions of drops. One whole drop can often be too much.
Pranarom Mini Caps
Each Pranarom mini-cap has only 37.5 mg of essential oil. That’s a very low dose - approximately .0375 of one drop! And the gel caps are diluted down in non-GMO, certified organic sunflower oil and encapsulated in a vegetable glycerin and gelatin capsule. That makes for very easy digestion, and a quick delivery of the essential oil’s components into the bloodstream.
Ginger - for warming digestive support and motility.
Lavender - for nervous system and digestive support, calming and soothing.
