WHAT ARE THE CAUTIONARY MEASURES
WHEN HANDLING ESSENTIAL OILS?
To get the best results from your use of 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.
2. Never apply undiluted essential oils on the skin unless under the direct supervision of a qualified aromatherapist.
3. Never put essential oils in the eyes. Always close your eyes when inhaling them. If they enter your eyes accidentally, rinse it with copious amounts of water or milk.
