Essential Oils UsageAn essential oil is a concentrated extract of a flower or herb. Essential oils are absorbed into the body (through the nose or skin) therefore it is normally advised that you consult with an aromatherapist before using essential oils if you suffer from a medical condition or take medication. This is also advisable if you are pregnant, or when using oils with children under 18 months.
Essential oils are concentrated extracts and should always be used with care and must be diluted before applying to the skin.
Essential oils should not be taken internally, unless on the advice of a professional, after a consultation.
