Less is more where essential oils are concerned. Our topical products are diluted specifically for the face and body to be safe and effective.As a general rule avoid undiluted application on the skin. Some pure essential oils can be used sparingly (one drop at at time), such as lavender.Definitely avoid essential oils like cinnamon, clove, thyme,lemongrass and other “spicy oils”which are sensitizing and irritating. Bergamot and similar oils can make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Safety information is noted on each of our bottles for your convenience.
