ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY
Do not apply essential oils to your skin undiluted. Some essential oils, when diluted are suitable for use in skincare formulations. Please contact us for more information if you are using essential oils on your skin for safe dilution ratios. Generally 1-2% of essential oil diluted in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil is considered safe. Some essential oils can cause irritation even in dilution and are not suitable in skincare.
We do not recommend ingesting essential oils. Essential oils are very potent plant extractions and can cause irritation and damage to your mucous membranes as well as other health risks such as poisoning. Ask our Herbalists about safe plant extracts for internal use. Store essential oils away from children at all times. Seek advice before using essential oils for children. If you have a skin condition, are pregnant, have epilepsy or asthma, or are in any doubt about any condition you may have please contact us or a suitable health practitioner for further guidance.
