GRAS companies:

Some More Practical Tips: Gentle oils like frankincense and lemon can usually be taken directly under the tongue for quick access into the bloodstream. More volatile oils like oregano and clove should ALWAYS be diluted with a carrier oil. 1 drop per teaspoon is usually safe for people. Putting 1-2 drops in a capsule can help you avoid esophageal irritation. Putting 1 drop of a citrus oil in your water is generally safe and quite enjoyable. My family and I regularly enjoy a drop of lemon/lime + some liquid stevia in sparkling water as our soda pop alternative. Include 1 drop of your favorite oils in your food. Cooking with essential oils is an extremely effective way to enjoy the health benefits as well as the wonderful experience through your taste buds. 1-2 drops of cilantro or coriander with 1-2 drops of lime, for example, goes wonderfully with your homemade guacamole. Dry 1 drop of cumin in your curry next time. Or 1-2 drops of black pepper in virtually anything savory!
