Essential Oil Safety Guidelines

Be sure to follow these safety guidelines when you’re using essential oils for allergies (or any other reason):

  • For children under 10: I recommend avoiding oils rich in the component 1,8 cineole.
  • For people with asthma and other breathing conditions: Have them sniff the bottle first. If their chest feels tighter, I don’t use that oil for them.
  • Use oils from reputable companies: Make sure you buy from companies that are transparent about their practices. Offer products that are 100% pure, sustainably harvested, and either certified organic, organically grown, or wildcrafted. 
  • Do not use essential oils directly on the skin: Dilute essential oils before using on skin. I never recommend undiluted topical use of essential oils, unless you’re a certified aromatherapist. Some oils can actually harm the skin if they’re used in this way. Be sure to dilute your essential oils in a carrier before applying them topically.
  • Do not consume essential oils: never recommend consuming essential oils, unless you’re a certified aromatherapist. Without the proper knowledge and education, consuming essential oils is not advisable.
