Essential oil blends can be very effective and safe when used appropriately. Be sure to follow all label warnings and instructions. Never apply oils directly to the eyes or inside the ear canal. After applying essential oils, avoid touching any sensitive areas such as eyes, inner ears, genitals or broken skin. After applying essential oils the residue can be enjoyed and massaged into the palms for therapeutic benefit or be sure to wash hands thoroughly if contact with sensitive areas is predicted. If redness or irritation occurs when using the essential oil topically, simply apply fractionated coconut oil to the affected area- water will not dilute essential oils. Consult your physician before using essential oils if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care.
It is also recommended to avoid exposing the area of application to sunlight for 12 hours after using blends with citrus oils, such as the Breathe Easy, Immune Support and Thyroid Support blends.
