  • Essential oils are highly flammable substances and should be kept away from direct contact of any kind of flames, such as candles, fire, matches, cigarettes, and gas cookers.
  • Do not use photosensitising essential oils prior to going into a tanning booth or the sun. We recommend that the client stay out of the sun or a tanning booth for at least twenty-four hours after treatment, if photosensitising essential oils were applied to the skin.
  • Avoid prolonged use of the same essential oils.
  • Research the oil before using it on others. Avoid the use of essential oils on your clients without any prior knowledge of the same.
  • Avoid the use of undiluted essential oils on the skin, unless otherwise prescribed.
  • Perform a skin patch test, if you suspect or are aware that your client may be sensitive/have allergies to a specific essential oil. 
  • Use caution while using the product on a client who suspects she is pregnant or has been trying to become pregnant.
  • Make sure your treatment room has good ventilation.
  • Do not use essential oils internally unless properly trained in the safety issues of doing so.
  1. Is it safe to use undiluted essential oil on the skin?
  • Essential oils are concentrated substances, and because of this we do not recommend using them without diluting them first. We recommend adding essential oils to a carrier oil such as jojoba, coconut, almond, or others, before using them. Diluting them in this manner provides a measure of protection from skin irritation, allergic reactions, and even sensitization. 
  • A general rule of thumb for diluting is to use 1% dilution for children (aged 6 years and older), pregnant women, elderly adults, those with compromised immune systems, sensitive skin, or other serious health issues. A 2% dilution is acceptable for the average adult with no health issues. Higher dilutions can be used, depending on the situation and the health of the person the oils will be applied on. We recommend that you use the lowest dilution possible that provides effective results. 

Note: A 1% dilution would be by adding 3 drops of essential oil per tablespoon of the carrier.

  1. General Safety Guidelines (Storage, Dilutions, How Used)
  • Essential oils are highly concentrated substances and should always be diluted before applying to skin. It is important to be aware of the chemistry and the quality of the oils being used. Use only high quality oils from reputable sources. 
  • Store oils in a cool, dark place.
  • Dosage is another important factor in aromatherapy- too much of certain oils can irritate skin or cause other side effects. Essential oils are always applied to the skin in combination with vegetable and nuts oils, gels, lotions, butters, salts or other herbal ingredients. Always lower the dosage for children, elderly, pregnant women or anyone with serious health conditions.
