Safe use of essential oils
Essential oils are highly concentrated substances with strong action, so we must use them very carefully.
Before use, check:
- purity and quality of essential oil, dosing amount (how many drops),
- how it is used (for inhalation, as an ointment, as massage oil),
- who is the end-user; risk groups that need professional advice are infants, pregnant women, patients with asthma, epilepsy, or skin problems,
- expiration date, essential oils of citrus, tea tree, and conifer have a shelf life of one year, after which they like to oxidize and therefore irritate the skin.
It is a good idea to take an allergy test before using an individual essential oil. Apply a mixture of essential oil to the inside of the forearm, diluting it in a base oil (e.g., olive, jojoba, avocado oil).
