Essential Oil Precautions
Essential Oils should never be consumed. Accidental Ingestion Call 911
Pure and/or Concentrated (Neat) Essential Oils should not be used directly on the skin. Essential oils should always be diluted into an unscented medium or carrier oil before application to the skin.
Children and Infants:
-We do not recommend diffusing essential oils in an infant or young child's bedroom.
-Diffusion of essential oils in a child's bedroom who is over the age of 6 years is up to your own discretion.
-Always choose gentle aroma blends to use in a child's bedroom.
-All essential oils and Diffuser Blends should be kept out of the reach of all children who are under the age of 12 years.
-All children under the age of 12 should be supervised when using essential oils.
-If a parent or guardian chooses to diffuse essential oils in their child's bedroom, we recommend that diffusion in child's bedroom should only be done so for 1 hour at a time and the bedroom door should remain open to all allow for cross ventilation.
Cats & Dogs:
Essential Oils can be used safely in your home via air diffusion in the presence of your cats and dogs as long as the space is large and if there is good cross-ventilation. No animal or small child should be confined to a small or enclosed room while diffusing Essential Oils.
Cats lack an enzyme in their liver to break down Essential Oils if they were to ingest oils. Because cats spend a great deal of time grooming and licking—no Essential Oil product should be applied to the skin or fir of a cat. The application of Essential Oils to a cat could cause a toxic reaction. However, it is still fine to use Essential Oils in the presence of your cat—such as in aromatic diffusers, or when using body care products for yourself or when you have applied an aromatherapy inspired spray to your linens or clothes. However it is best to discourage your cat from licking your skin when you have just applied a product.
If you are pregnant or nursing, have heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other medical condition that might be affected by Essential Oils please seek the advice of a health professional before using.
