Essential Oils and Absolutes Safety Information

  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.
  5. Consulting an Aromatherapist to obtain assistance to determine what essential oil you should use is recommended.
  6. If an essential oil or essential oil blend gets into your eye, flush the eye immediately with clean water or cold milk. Seek medical attention if the stinging and/or irritation continues.
  7. If allergic to certain foods, do not use essential oils or carrier oils that come from those foods.
  8. Do not use essential oils if pregnant, nursing, diabetic if noted on the essential oil page or blend page. Consult your physician and other reference guides for complete information.
  9. Many essential oils have not been tested on humans, thus always take precautions with using aromatherapy.
  10. Essential oils do not necessarily have the same healing properties of the plant it comes from. Herbal products sometimes contain different chemical constituents than the essential oil derived from the same plant. Therapeutic results may be experienced when using an herbal product from that of a blended essential oil.
  11. Do not use more than 2 drops of the following essential oils when used in a bath: Black pepper, Juniper, Camphor (rectified), Peppermint, Citronella, Sage, Clove, Spearmint, Eucalyptus Globus, Thyme, Ginger.
  12. The following essential oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Basil, Marjoram, Cedarwood, Myrrh, Clary Sage, Rose, Fennel, Rosemary, Jasmine, Lavender, and Thyme.
  13. The following essential oils should be avoided if you have epilepsy: Cajeput, Fennel, Camphor, Hyssop, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Rosemary.
  14. Use a variety of essential oils and make sure you take breaks from the essential oils you use often. This is to avoid sensitization and irritation. The norm would be to use a blend for 4 days, take a minimum of 4 days off and use a different blend which provides the same relief.
  15. Customers may purchase products from our store only with the clear understanding that all products must be used at their own discretion and risk.
