Use with caution.
Essential oils are highly concentrated, and they can be harmful if not used carefully.
Dilute with a carrier oil.
Essential oils should not be used undiluted on the skin without proper knowledge and cautions.
Less really is more.
Essential oils are very concentrated. For most applications, 1-2 drops are all you need. Use the smallest amount of essential oil that will get the job done.
Don't apply to sensitive areas.
Avoid getting near eyes, face, ears, underarms, and mucous membranes.
Never use water if you experience irritation.
If essential oils get in your eyes or causes skin irritation, flush and dilute the area with a carrier oil (unscented lotion, butter, or olive oil can also help) to alleviate discomfort.
Do not add directly to water.
Essential oils do not stay mixed with water and should never be added to bathwater without first being mixed with bath salts or other emulsifiers. Essential oils that are at higher risk of causing irritation and sensitization should be avoided or used sparingly in the bath.
Know the safety precautions for each essential oil that you use.
Not all essential oils are appropriate for all applications.
Use care around pets.
The same essential oils and blends that we use on ourselves are not always safe to use on our dogs, cats, birds, horses or other pets. Research the essential oils before exposing your pets.
Keep out of childrens' reach.
Use extreme caution when using essential oils with children and follow the recommended dilution ratios. Never let children use essential oils unsupervised.
External use only.
Essential oils are highly concentrated and should not be ingested without thorough understanding of appropriate usage and risks for each oil.
