Guidelines

Essential oils are very highly concentrated and potent and it is important to always check the specific safety data provided. Keep out of reach of children, the elderly, and pets. For external use only. Avoid contact with mucus membranes and eyes. If any essential oils have contacted your eye, wash out with a vegetable oil such as olive oil, not water.

Some oils may cause skin irritation in people with sensitive skin. It is recommended to perform a patch test before use. To patch test, place one drop on the back of your wrist and leave for an hour or more. If irritation or redness occurs wash the area with olive oil then cold water and do not use the oil.

We do not recommend the ingestion of essential oils except while under the care and direction of a qualified health practitioner.

Special Considerations

Please note: If you have underlying health issues please consult with a licensed medical health practitioner before using essential oils. Anyone with the following health issues is advised to contact their health care provider before using essential oil products: Cancer, Epilepsy, High Blood Pressure, high doses of medications for any other illness not listed here if you are Pregnant or trying to become Pregnant. 

Sun Sensitization

Some essential oils, especially those of the citrus family, may increase your skin’s sensitivity to sun and UV light. If using these oils avoid sunlight and UV light exposure of the treated area for 12-24 hrs.
