Replacing Medications with Essential Oils is Dangerous
Play • 3 min

Someone contacted me this evening asking if it was safe for her daughter (breastfeeding a 3-month-old) to take copaiba softgels instead of Z0l0ft. I was able to share with her how dangerous it is to replace medications (especially strong mental health ones) with essential oils.

PLEASE do not replace strong medications with essential oils!

PLEASE do not listen to people who sell you essential oils who tell you that you can.

You could rebound! You could feel worse! 

This must be done under supervision by a medical professional (like your doctor, or a naturopath or someone who can monitor you).

Essential oils are amazing! But PLEASE use responsibly.
