Essential oils are powerful plant essences that can be used in many ways. From massage oils to room sprays, to skincare to aromatherapeutic blends, these oils are as versatile as they are diverse. When using essential oils by breathing/inhaling their aromas, they are normally used at full strength. Yet when applying them directly on the skin, the large majority of them MUST be diluted. Because essential oils are so powerful, we do not recommend using them internally.
Essential oils are also the basis of natural perfumery and can be used to make aromatic, bespoke blends for every individual who wishes to embark into the world of natural essences.

Here is a link to Kolya's ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDING CHART, to understand basic blending ratios.
Storage: Always keep tightly sealed in a cool, dark place. Heat, oxygen, and light degrade the product.
General Usage: We recommend doing a patch test before using an essential oil for the first time. Do not use essential oils on sensitive areas of the skin & keep away from eyes. If any negative reaction occurs, DO NOT RINSE WITH WATER, but rather dilute the area immediately by applying any vegetable oil /carrier oil (coconut, olive oil, etc) to the affected area.
Please avoid the use of essential oils with babies. Before using essential oils with children, ensure each oil is age appropriate and is used responsibly. Many authors have different opinions on this subject, so we suggest you research multiple sources.
General Precautions: Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. In general, when using essential oils, use caution when dealing with epilepsy & asthma. We highly recommend caution using essential oils during pregnancy. Avoid use of essential oils in the first trimester.
Specific Oil Precautions: Possible skin irritant. Oxidized oils can cause skin sensitization. Avoid use of old or oxidized essential oil.
Though we have provided the aforementioned precautions, they may not be comprehensive and therefore it is each individuals responsibility to research any oils they choose to use.
