    General Safety Considerations for Essential Oil Use

    Keep essential oils out of reach of children. Do not leave a bottle which has no fixed integral dropper where a child could take off the cap and consume contents.

    • Do not use directly on or near the eyes; ensure caution with compresses. Most diluted essential oils will sting the eyes; if accidents happen, flush with clean warm water; if NEAT oils get is the eye, immediately flush with cold full fat milk, or vegetable oil to dilute. If stinging is not alleviated, seek medical assistance.
    • Do not, unless otherwise advised by an expert, apply neat essential oil onto the skin.
    • To remove neat oil spills on hands, use cream or vegetable oil to dilute, apply soap, wash with warm water; may need to be repeated.

    • Ingesting any oil should only be undertaken under the supervision of a professional health advisor and never exceed the suggested amount.
    • Essential oils should always be used diluted over a large body area.
    • Excess (of EOs) can cause headaches, nausea and general feeling of uneasiness; drink plenty of water, get fresh air, take frequent breaks.
    • Do not drive a motor vehicle (or allow client to) immediately following a relaxation treatment or after using soporific oils (e.g., clary sage)

    • If any kind of skin rash is observed when using a particular essential oil, stop using it immediately and try another o
