The following safety precautions are guidelines only. You should consult with any Aromatherapist about essential oil usage and always inform your primary care physician what you are using as they may not be conducive with his/her prescribed therapy and medications.
1. Keep Essential Oils in a secure place away from children and pets.
2. The term ‘natural’ does not guarantee safety, read and follow instructions carefully.
3. Unless otherwise stated, never use essential oils on your skin without diluting the essential oil with a carrier oil. 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. Consulting an Aromatherapist to obtain assistance to determine what essential oil you should use is recommended.
4. 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.
5. If allergic to certain foods, do not use essential oils or carrier oils that come from those foods.
6. The following essentials oils should never be used on the skin:
Alan Root (Inula helenium), Almond bitter, Bergamot expressed, Birch sweet, Birch tar, Boldo leaf, Cade, Calamus, Camphor (brown, yellow, unrectified), Cassis, Cinnamon bark, Colophon, Costos Root, Fig Leaf abs, Horseradish, Mustard (volatile), Opoponax, Peru balsam, Rue abs, Sassafras, Tansy, Tolu, Turpentine, Verbena (from citriodora), Wintergreen (Methyl salicylate)
7. Many essential oils have not been tested on humans, thus always take precautions with using Aromatherapy.
8. Essential oils do not necessarily have the same healing properties of the plant it comes from. Herbal products sometimes contain different chemical components 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.
9. Do not use more than 2 drops of the following essential oils when used in a bath:
Aniseed, Black pepper, Camphor (rectified), Citronella, Clove, Eucalyptus globus, Ginger, Juniper, Peppermint, Pimento, Sage, Savory, Spearmint, Thyme
10. The following essential oils should be avoided during pregnancy:
Basil, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Fennel, Jasmine, Lavender, Marjoram, Myrrh, Rose, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme
11. The following essential oils should be avoided if you have epilepsy:
Cajaput, Champhor, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Hyssop, Peppermint, Rosemary
12. 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.
