Internal: There is no discernable reason to use Cananga for internal applications.
Precautions: This oil, as well as Ylang Ylang essential oil, are prone to inducing headaches in some users, especially if too much is diffused for too long. This oil should also not be applied topically in too high of doses, or for too long, as there's a risk of sensitization to the oil.
Essential Oils should never be consumed without first consulting your doctor/aromatherapist/naturopath, etc. Skin Patch Tests should always be conducted when applying an essential oil topically for the first time.
