Are Citrus Oils Safe For You Teeth?

I recently read an article from Young Living about the effects Citrus Fruits can have on the teeth. Many people have raised concern that Citrus Oils may have the same effect so Young Living had a test done to show exactly how these oils effect your teeth.

Pretty cool how they have little to no change in PH compared to the actual fruit itself. Wondering how that can be if these are "pure" oils right? Well, it all goes back to the Seed to Seal process. Lemon (as well as other citrus oils) are cold pressed from the rind of 'Citrus limon fruit'. This results in essential oil with a bright citrus aroma comparable to the flesh of the fresh fruit. The actual flesh of the fruit contains higher levels of PH compared to the essential oils derived from the rind.
