SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

To get the best results when using essential oils and to avoid developing hazardous side effects you should:

1. Always conduct a skin patch test before using a new essential oil.

Do this by applying the essential oil that has been diluted with a  carrier oil on the inner aspect of your elbow, bandage it and wait for 24 hours to see if you will develop rashes or itchiness or swelling or any other sign of an allergic reaction. If you do, do not use that essential oil.

2. Always buy your essential oils from a reputable vender to ensure you use high quality therapeutic grade essential oils in your blends.

3. Do not confuse essential oils with fragrance oils since the latter do not have the natural healing benefits of essential oils.
