GENERAL USAGE GUIDE: Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy and are intended for use as room deodorizers (fresheners), as additive to massage oils (from 1 – 3%), and also for baths, inhalations and sauna. Some essential oils could be also used for preparation of homemade cosmetics or remedies (external).
Caution: – Do not use undiluted oils on the skin, dilute with vegetable oil. There are a very few exceptions to this rule, for example non-irritating oils like Lavender or Tea Tree oils undiluted on burns, insect bites, pimples and other minor skin eruptions so long as you do not have sensitive skin. – Skin test essential oil for sensitivity. Many people who are sensitive or allergic to say synthetic fragrances will not be sensitive to natural oils. Do a patch test with a 2% dilution (with a pure vegetable oil) in the crook of the arm, 12 hours will be sample time to check for a reaction. If redness or irritation occur try a weaker dilution (1%) or try an alternative oil. – Keep all essential oils out of the reach of young children. – Don’t take essential oils orally for therapeutic purposes. Safe ingestion of oils requires a great deal of training and is therefore not recommended for beginners. – Be cautious about using essential oils during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester. Even oils that are generally safe during this time may be too stimulating for women who are prone to miscarriage. – Overexposure to an essential oil, either through the skin or through inhalation, may result in nausea, headache, skin irritation, emotional unease or a “spaced-out” feeling. Getting some fresh air will help overcome these symptoms. If you ever experience skin irritation or accidentally get essential oils in the eyes, dilute with straight vegetable oil, not water.
