Experts weigh in: Are essential oils safe?
(KUTV) — Monika Menke suffered from debilitating pain driven by migraines, fibromyalgia, and auto immune diseases.
At one point, the pain became too much.
"You just get to a point where you just get tired of everything," Menke said.
Out of sheer desperation, she tried essential oils and finally started feeling some relief, and slowly started weaning herself off of medications.
"I don't use any more prescription medication," she said. "So that's a huge deal for me."
Millions of people worldwide apparently feel the same way.
Essential oils is a 5-billion dollar industry, according to a spokesperson for doTERRA, an essential oils company based in Pleasant Grove.
"It's a growing industry because people are really looking for solutions. They're looking for overall ways to supplement their health and wellness," said Missy Larsen, VP of Corporate Communications for doTERRA.
But, some doctors have concerns.
