Most of your post is great, but the following is a dangerous statement:
..This has something to do with the frequency of essential oils. I am sorry I donít have more information concerning what happens when these oils are put down into the ear. They can safely be used on the outside of the ear.
Second, Melaleuca alternifolia, also known as tea tree essential oil can be very toxic and dangerous but this is only true when the source of the oil is adulterated in some way or is not a therapeutic-grade essential oil labeled for internal use. Unless your essential oil label states clearly that it is for INTERNAL/ORAL USE it should not be taken internally or for that matter applied to the body. No essential oil should ever be put down into the ear.
A true therapeutic-grade Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) essential oil is safe to apply topically as well as taken orally.
No it is not safe to be taken orally at any time.
With all due respect, you sound like a Young Living (Brand of essential oils) distributor..
The reason for this has nothing to do with the frequency. It has to do with the delicate inner tissue of the ear canal and the thin membranes and villi which it consists of, and which can be wrecked by the oil. The essential oil is too strong for the tissues there.
It would be like running a freight train into a wall in order to kill a gnat that is sitting on the wall.
Since this essential oil (Like all essential oils) works by vaporization, the delicate tissue cannot hold it back, and it will burn them on the way through unless the essential oil has been very, very attenuated by the addition of a benign carrier oil.
Since it is more effective and far safer to simply apply it outside around the *outer* ear and let it vaporize its way in through the epithelium, which it will do, no one who knows this oil well enough to use it would drop it into the inside of the ear, it's too risky.
Inside the Mouth/Stomach/Esophagus tissues and their mucous membranes are even more delicate.
No responsible essential oil producer would label an undiluted essential oil for internal or oral use. Unless they have made the buyer sign a release of liability first.
Melaleuca Alternifolia Pure Essential Oil of *any* grade is NOT safe to be taken orally.
It's scary to me how many folks think essential oils are safe to ingest if they're organic, or pure, or fill-in-the-blank. They are not. You can burn your throat and lung tissue inhaling them also, if it is improperly done.
Please understand that my reason for posting this is not to upset you W01, but is because someone may read your post and think it is safe to ingest Tea Tree essential oil. It is not.
