Essential Oils and Absolutes Safety Information and Disclaimer

  1. Our essential oils and absolutes are intended for external/topical use only. They are NOT intended for ingestion (internal consumption), as the concentrated essential oils/absolutes can cause damage internally if administered without expertise.
  2. Do not use essential oils/absolutes on your skin without diluting the them with a carrier oil or other cosmetic base such as cream/lotion/shampoo etc. A skin test is recommended prior to use. Place a small amount of the blended oil on the inside of your elbow, cover with a bandage and check in 24 hours. If you experience any soreness, redness or irritation do not use the blend.
  3. Keep essential oils in a secure place away from children and pets.
  4. The term ‘natural’ does not guarantee safety, read and follow instructions carefully.
