Aromatherapy Precautions

  • Do not use essential oils without mixing them in a carrier oil.  Essential oils are powerful and may irritate the skin.

  • If you are pregnant, suffer from epilepsy or high blood pressure, you should always seek expert advice before using any essential oils.

  • Keep out of eyes and mucous membranes. (Flush with olive oil in case of contact.)

  • Use essential oils externally; do not ingest.

  • Keep essential oils away from children.

  •   Essential oils are contra-indicated during pregnancy and breast-feeding. It is strongly advised to consult a qualified practitioner before use.

  • Essential oils are highly volatile (flammable). Use only in burners designed for this purpose.

  • Oxidization and rancidity can cause toxicity
