Essential Oils Safety Considerations

    Essential oils are safe when used properly, but are concentrated and very potent, so it is
    best to exercise caution with their use.

    Please remember the following:

  • Some oils can be irritating to the skin.  When using a new oil test it first, especially if you have
    sensitive skin or allergies.  Mix one drop of the new oil in a teaspoon of a base oil such a jojoba or
    grape seed oil and dab a small amount on the inside of your arm or wrist as you would with a fine
    perfume.  Wait 24 hours to ensure no irritation occurs.

  • Know your oils. Some oils should not be used during pregnancy.  If you are pregnant or nursing, it
    is best to consult with your doctor before using any essential oils.

  • Some should not be used on children or by persons with certain medical conditions.  When in
    doubt - refrain and consult your doctor before using.

  • Keep oils out of reach of children and pets.

  • Essential oils are flammable. Never expose to open flame or excess heat.  Avoid spills and wipe up
    carefully should a spill occur.

  • Use care around furniture - undiluted oils can damage some furniture finishes.

  • Undiluted oils may remove nail polish or mar artificial nails.

  • Citrus oils are photo-sensitizing – do not use within 12 hours of exposure to sunlight or using a
    tanning bed.

  • Essential oils are very concentrated and can be dangerous if ingested.  Do so only under the
    supervision of a doctor or a qualified practitioner.  Using oils in a massage or by inhalation method
    is much safer and very effective.
