Essential Oil Tips:

  • Before using your essential oils, read the directions on the label carefully. Essential oils are potent substances; they often will need to be diluted before use. They can burn or irritate the skin, eyes and mucous membranes if not handled properly.
  • Use small quantities of oils; only a few drops are needed.
  • Store your oils in a dark, cool place.
  • Children or pregnant/breastfeeding women should not use essential oils without first talking to their doctor or an integrative physician.
  • If you have a respiratory condition such as asthma, avoid inhaling the oils.
