ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY TIPS

Please make sure you are using your essential oils safely

- Do not put the oils in eyes, ears or up nose - they are very sensitive areas

- Always drink out of glass or stainless steel when using oil

- Apply a small amount of oil to your skin to test for a skin reaction before using. Should you have irritation, redness, itching, or burning, apply a carrier oil (coconut oil, olive oil, or a natural vegetable based oil) to the area to dilute the essential oil and stop the sensation. Do not use water

- If you get oil in your eye, apply 1-2 drops of a carrier oil to the eye to ease the irritability. Do not use water

- Read the labels on the bottles and in the resource books to be clear about the oils that can be used internally. It will say 'for food flavouring' or 'add 1 drop to 4 fl oz of water' on the bottle. If in doubt, check the www.doterra.com website

- Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity so please do not apply on the skin if you're out in the sunshine. Oils to avoid include single citrus oils as well as blends containing citrus oils: Aromatouch, Bergamot, Citrus Bliss, Cumin, Air, Cheer, Forgive, Motivate, On Guard, Elevation, Grapefruit, In Tune, Kumquat, Lemon, Lime, Purify, Slim and Sassy, Sunny Citrus, Tangerine, Wild Orange, Zendocrine

- Please reference oil/drug interactions in the resource books, caution for Epilepsy

- Please consult your doctor when using oils with medications or if you have any health concerns. Wintergreen oil should not be used if you are on blood thinning medication as it plays the same role.

- Using your oils with a carrier oil will be the most effective way to use your oils. A carrier oil helps to improve absorption, slow evaporation, prevent skin sensitivity and allow for the distribution of oils over a large area

- Particularly dilute for babies, children, pregnant women, the elderly and those with sensitive skin

- Dilute when using the 'hot' oils: Cassia, Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Oregano and Thyme. 1 drop of a hot essential oil to 10 drops of a carrier oil

- When using essential oils in the bath, please add a few drops to a handful of epsom salts to help disperse the oil rather than it floating on the top

- Keep your oils in a dark cool place, keep them out of heat and direct sunlight, keep the lids on - oxygen makes them evaporate. You can keep the citrus oils in the fridge
