Essential oils make up one of nature’s powerful tools to enhance our living and wellbeing. They really are amazing! However, because these oils are so potent and powerful, they can be dangerous if not used correctly. Luckily, we have this blog to teach us all about essential oil safety (and a few tricks of the trade). So, let’s dig in!
Here at RMO, safety always comes first. Always. To help your family enjoy all of the benefits of essential oils, simply follow the guidelines below:
If you read all of those bullet points, you deserve a high five! *high five here* You can look for more essential oil safety information at www.naha.org. The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) educates health care practitioners and the general public alike on safe and responsible use of essential oils. If you find yourself in an emergency caused by essential oils, please do the following:
Eyes: If any essential oil accidentally makes it to the eye area, rinse with a fatty oil and then flush the eye with cool water.
Burning skin: If dermal irritation occurs after applying an essential oil apply a carrier oil to dilute further. Rinse off with a mild soap and water
While essential oil emergencies are rare, we do want to ensure your safety. Thank you so much for joining in! If you have any additional questions that you’d like to ask, please feel free to contact our customer service department.
