They offer the option of using lemon essential oil or pure organic lemon extract. There’s an ongoing debate over ingesting essential oils. Some people say that food grade essential oils that are GRAS (Generally regarded as safe by the FDA) are safe to consume.
Other people say there are risks that even a small amount of an essential oil can accumulate in the liver and cause problems. Or that essential oils can interact with other medications. It’s important to research the particular essential oil you’re considering using and discuss it with your doctor.
So I like the fact that Brittany and Kristin offer the option to use pure, organic lemon extract.
