Essential Oil Safety


Essential Oil Safety

Using essential oils can be simple and life-changing.   But there are a few precautions that should be taken:

  1. Use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils.
  2. Follow all label warnings and instructions.
  3. Keep oils out of the reach of children.
  4. Essential oils should not be used in the eyes, in the ear canal or on open wounds.
  5. Keep essential oils away from the eyes.  After applying oils, keep hands away from eyes.
  6. Do not use on a child’s hands as they may transfer oils to the eyes.
  7. Some oils are “hot” such as cassia, cinnamon and oregano.  Always use caution and dilute.
  8. Many essential oils are just as effective when diluted down to 5%.
  9. Dilute oils when using on infants, young children and those with sensitive skin.
  10. If redness or irritation occurs when using topically, apply vegetable oil (olive, coconut or almond oil, etc) to the affected area.
  11. Do NOT consume an essential oil internally unless the product is FDA approved as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe).
  12. Internal use of essential oils should be limited.
  13. Avoid the sun after using citrus oils which cause sun sensitivity.
  14. Consult with your physician before using essential oils,  particularly if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care.
  15. If pregnant, avoid most essential oils without doing further research.

Learn more about Essential Oils

One of the best ways to learn, I believe,  is through using the oils.  But I do understand, they can be somewhat daunting or confusing at first.  I highly encourage all Essential oil users and wanna-be users to purchase The Modern Essentials reference guide.  This is a doTerra specific guide, BUT can be used by anyone that uses essential oils and has even a limited knowledge of oils.  If you are using essentials oils, this is a MUST.
