Essential Oil Safety
Essential Oils are highly concentrated and should be treated with
Essential Oils are extremely easy and safe to use at home, for their
beautiful aromas and perfumery qualities as well as their medicinal
soothing and healing properties. BUT, PLEASE BE CAREFUL. Sensible use
and low concentrations are the key. These oils are powerful natural
substances that should be lovingly stored and used, with humility and
- Always dilute in base oil before being applied to the skin.
It is highly recommended to try a variety of pre-mixed blends before
attempting your own. However it is fun and easy to make your own
with base oil and your own mix of essential oils. Just stick to
these two general rules, never too much, never too many. A few
two or three oils with 5 table spoons of base oil will make enough
for an adult to enjoy a full body massage.
- Do not use on infants.
Essential oils are not appropriate for infants. Dilutions for children
and the elderly should be at least half the recommended dose but
we have always recommended that essential oils should only be used
for adults. Under the professional supervision of trained and qualified
Aroma therapists, essential oils play an important medicinal role.
But unless you are suitably qualified, we would strongly recommend
that oils are kept out of contact with, sight of and reach of children.

- Always keep out of
reach of children and away from the eyes.
- Always store in a dark
cupboard away from direct sunlight.

Please seek the advice of a professional aroma therapist or medical
practitioner before use. These conditions are often related to

at an even greater risk. However essential oils are perfectly safe
for the vast majority of healthy adults.
If you are pregnant
Please seek the advice of a qualified aroma therapist if you are pregnant
and uncertain which oils can and can't be used during this time. Certain
essential oils should be avoided altogether (e.g. Cedar wood and Rosemary)
and some are best avoided for the first four months (e.g. Peppermint).
