Tea Recipes

For tea lovers ♥ If you’re vegan and don’t use honey you can substitute with an alternative like coconut blossom, maple, agave syrup etc.

Only pure DoTERRA essential oil is safe to use internally, as they’re tested for purity and many registered food grade (The essential oil industry isn’t regulated by any governing agency. The only requirement is to have at least 8% of the active ingredient inside of a bottle that is labelled 100% pure, and other ingredients do not have to be listed. An essential oil can be labelled as ‘pure’ and still legally contain up to 92% fillers and synthetics. According to the experts at APRC approximately 80% of commercially available essential oils are adulterated in some way).
