Safety & Contraindications

Are you sure you're using essential oils safely and effectively? Are you confused by dilutions and conversions?

 Let me help take out the guesswork and download my FREE roller bottle guide HERE.

Essential Oil Roller Bottle Dilution Guide

When it comes to drug interactions and contraindications, there are literally textbooks devoted to the study of essential oil safety and, as a trained researcher and doctor, I think it’s important to note that there is virtually no research out there discussing how essential oils interact with drugs in human clinical trials. This means that essential oil safety is still a wild frontier in the science community and no one really knows (for certain) how essential oils will interact with drugs or your body.

Nonetheless, properly diluting your essential oils is fundamental to safety and effectiveness because they are highly concentrated plant compounds. To help you along your journey, I have a created an easy-to-use dilution guide that you can download for FREE to make sure that all of your topical applications are safe and effective for the entire family.

As with as medicine and natural therapies, this is only a guide and be sure to discontinue use if any adverse reactions occur and consult your physician immediately.

    Is the first group of essential oils safe for use with children? My 10 year old daughter has extremely dry skin, and I am making the body butter for her.

      When it comes to children, especially those as old as your daughter, it’s more about dilution than it is not using certain oils because they are dangerous for kids.

      To be sure, there is no definitive list of oils that are safe for adults, but not safe for children. The scientists disagree and there’s a lot of confusion about this. As long as they are diluted 1%-2% (depending on age), then you should be fine.
