Essential oils can enhance our day with the magic of aromatherapy, but essential oils can be harmful if used incorrectly.
Please take note of the following points.
Do not take essential oils internally. There has been much said in the media with certain essential oil companies, stating it is safe to ingest essential oils to kick start your day or to help heal a health issue your may have. Let me tell you it is not safe at all! Any health issue should be seen to by your family doctor.
Never apply essential oils directly to your skin.
If you suffer an allergic reaction, discontinue its use immediately.
Keep oils out of reach from children and animals.
Never dilute more than 6-8 drops of essential oils in your diffuser.
Always use your diffuser in a well ventilated area.
Always check the label before purchasing essential oils and make sure it reads 100% pure essential oil.
Many essential oils are harmful to pregnant women and I do not recommend using essential oils unless you speak to your doctor or an qualified aromatherapist.
Do not use essential oils as a replacement for medical treatments recommended by healthcare professionals.
