While research suggests there are health benefits, the FDA *DOES NOT* monitor or regulate the purity or quality of essential oils. It’s important to talk with a healthcare professional before you begin using essential oils and be sure to research the quality of a brand’s products. Always do a patch test before trying a new essential oil.
If administered improperly, rash and other side effects may occur. Some essential oils can even be poisonous if absorbed directly through the skin. Others, like orange, lime, and lemon, can cause phototoxicity if applied before exposure to sun.
Essential oils require dilution to prevent adverse reactions. You can easily dilute your essential oils by blending a few drops with a carrier oil. Carrier oils are typically vegetable-based. They carry the essential oil safely onto your skin and help you spread it over a large surface area.
You shouldn’t use essential oils internally unless you’ve undergone advanced training and certification or are acting under the guidance of a trained professional. Avoid oral ingestion and internal application, such as in the mouth, vagina, or other mucus membranes.
Essential oils are natural, but that doesn’t mean they can be used without taking precautions. Before using any essential oil, you should ask yourself — and be able to answer — the following questions:
What method do you want to use?
Does the oil need to be diluted?
Does the oil increase photosensitivity?
Does the oil have any clinical interactions?
Is the oil safe to use around infants, children, or pets?
Is the oil safe to ingest?
