Essential oil safety is important because each doTERRA essential oil is pure and potent. With the summer months upon us, here are a few safety tips to keep your essential oil experiences positive.
With school out, young children have more time at home. They often are bored and spend their time exploring the home. Keep your oils in a safe place out of the reach of children. Remind your children that essential oils should be used with a parent. A great way to include your children is to let them pick the oil you are going to diffuse. The uplifting or calming scents that fill your home can contribute to keeping a positive atmosphere and can help dispel hard feelings after an argument.
Look at the labels and follow direction closely, especially if you are trying oils for the first time. Many oils need to be diluted with a carrier oil. For application convenience, many of doTERRA’s most popular oils are prediluted with a carrier oil as part of our Touch line. The Peppermint touch roller is a summer favorite for many because of its cooling effects on the skin. When applying to your face, avoid contact with your eyes, nose, or ears.
