Safety with Essential Oils

  1. Keep essential oils away from eyes and ears (if you do get oil in your eyes, rinse with vegetable oil, not water!).

  2. Essential oils are for external use only.

  3. Dilute essential oils before using. Carrier oils such as Sweet Almond, Grapeseed, Jojoba, or our own blend of Pure are recommended.

  4. Avoid direct sunlight or sunbed rays for 12 hours following use of Bergamot, Orange, Lime, Grapefruit, Lemon or Tangerine.

  5. Do not use for babies and young children without proper dilution rates; follow recipes.

  6. Keep essential oils out of reach of children.

  7. There are many opinions about the use of essential oils during pregnancy. Most oils are best avoided, but the safe ones are: Chamomile, Frankincense, Geranium, Jasmine, Lavender, Neroli, Rose, Sandalwood, Spearmint, Ylang Ylang, and citrus oils. Use only if you are 100% comfortable. Lavender works wonders for birthing, tight back and tension.

  8. Consult an aromatherapist before use with epilepsy, heart disease or high blood pressure.

  9. Keep out of sunlight and store in a cool place in amber or cobalt blue bottles. Cap tightly.

  10. Always remember, more is not better! One does not need to be an aromatherapist to use pure essential oils, but one does need to respect the power of the oils!
