Essential oils are incredibly concentrated and powerful so ensure safe use by properly diluting with a carrier oil. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Keep oils tightly closed and out of the reach of children. Do not ingest essential oils unless guided by a trained professional.
