  1. please advise how much drops to be added to beverages of the single oil, also for synergy please?

    1. There are several ways to take oils internally; you can blend them with organic honey, or put them in a veggie capsule to swallow. Personally I use 5 to 10 drops in a veggie capsule that I swallow 30 mins to 1hr before a meal. Other times I blend 5 to 10 drops of essential oils with honey. For the first time I recommend to use a smaller quantity (3 to 5 drops) and then increase it gradually.
