Safety Tips

Never put essential oils directly into your eyes or ears, as this could cause damage. Placing a few drops of oil on a cotton ball, then placing the cotton ball in your ear is recommended. You can also apply diluted oils around the outside of your ears.

Our citrus oils are photosensitive. If you apply them topically, you will want to avoid direct sunlight for 12 hours so that you don’t burn.

If you add any oils to your water, please make sure to drink out of a glass or stainless steel water bottle (not plastic).

We always recommend a carrier oil when applying oils topically to children, until you feel comfortable doing otherwise.

When using essential oils in your bath, add a few drops to Epsom salt first, then put salt into bath water. This will help the oils adhere to something, so that they disperse nicely throughout the water.

If you apply an oil topically and it feels uncomfortable, apply a carrier oil over it, then wipe away with a cloth. The carrier oil will carry the essential oil off of your skin.

Please keep your oils stored in a cool, dark place and avoid extreme temperatures, hot or cold. This will ensure your oils don’t go bad.
