- Never put the oils in your ear canals, eyes, or up your nose.
- If you apply the oils to your skin and experience sensitivity or burning (or if you get the oils somewhere that they should not be) apply vegetable oil to the area to dilute the concentration of the essential oil. DO NOT try to wash it off with water; water will actually drive the oils further into the skin. Do not put hot oils such as Cinnamon or Oregano directly on the skin without diluting them.
- Children under the age of 6 are not to take essential oils internally without being under a doctor’s care.
- Pregnant women need to educate themselves on what oils are safe and beneficial for use during pregnancy. There are many resources available and when in doubt, check with your doctor.
- DO NOT consume other brands of essential oils that you might find at a drug store. These are not certified pure therapeutic grade oils and the labels often indicate to call poison control if consumed. Many times essential oils will have harmful pesticides or a chemical solvent will be used to lower the cost of the distillation process. These are toxic and should not be consumed. Internal consumption should only be considered safe with bottles that have the FDA Food Supplement Facts label.
