Common "Scents" Precautions and Disclaimer

Therapeutic-grade 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.

1. Read the complete label before using essential oils.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Be aware that citrus oils may cause an increased reaction to the sun. Avoid prolonged sunbathing after applying pure citrus oils to the skin.

6. 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.

7. Do not use essential oils when pregnant without the supervision of a health professional.
