Ask An Aromatherapist Answer
When using sandalwood essential oil keep the following safety precautions in mind:
1. Avoid using sandalwood essential oil if you are allergic to balsams.
2. Do not use it alone for more than 2-3 months as it may lead to sensitization.
3. Always buy your essential oils from a reputable vender to ensure you use high quality therapeutic grade essential oils in your blends.
