Common "Scents" Precautions and Disclaimer
essential oils are strong and safe when used as directed. Below
are some preventative precautions that help you have an enjoyable
experience using Young Living Essential Oils.
Read the complete label before using essential oils.
Keep lids securely fastened and out of the reach of children. If
a child swallows an essential oil, administer milk, honey, or another
safe, oil-soluble liquid.
Therapeutic-grade essential oils are normally used at full strength.
However, because of differences, it is wise to test a small amount
of an oil the first time it is used on the soft, underside of your
arms to see if you are allergic. If an oil starts to irritate, rub
the area with vegetable oil. Water will not work. If irritation
persists, discontinue the use of that particular oil.
Keep oils out of your eyes, ears, and away from mucous membranes.
If you get oil in your eye, soothe with a drop of vegetable oil.
Washing the eye with water does not help. It'll only increase the
diffusion and discomfort.
Be aware that citrus oils may cause an increased reaction to the
sun. Avoid prolonged sunbathing after applying pure citrus oils
to the skin.
Research shows that many oils are safe to take internally as supplements.
Some oils however, are for external use only. Consult with an essential
oils expert if there are any questions.
Do not use essential oils when pregnant without the supervision
of a health professional.
