Although essential oils are generally seen as safe to use, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Essential oils shouldn’t be ingested. These oils are super potent, and even a few drops can cause you to experience severe gastrointestinal discomfort. If you do ingest essential oil and have an adverse reaction, seek medical assistance.

Never use undiluted essential oil, as it may cause inflammation and irritation. You should always do a patch test to determine how your skin will react to the diluted essential oil.

If you are pregnant or nursing, be sure to consult with your doctor before use.
