Day 3: Essential Oil Basics

Lindsay GrimesOils, Premium Starter Kit

Safety Tips!!

Essential oils are potent plant concentrates, so let’s talk safety. Here’s the 4-1-1:

* Keep oils out of your eyes and ears. Those are both REALLY sensitive areas. Take it from me – Frankincense in the eye is no fun (especially when you do it more than once! Yow!). If you get oil in your eyes, don’t splash rinse it. Instead, apply a fatty carrier oil around the area.

  • Photosensitivity (the fancy term for sunburning easier) is no fun! But citrus oils can cause it. So apply citrus oils where the sun won’t be shining.

* Notice an oil getting too warm on your skin? No problem! Apply a carrier oil right over top to cut the heat. Pre-dilute oils for young children, the elderly, or sensitive skin.

* Use glass or stainless steel when adding citrus (Vitality) oils to your water. Citrus oils can break down plastic, and you wouldn’t want to drink part of your cup with your water.
