Essential Oils Safety & Guidelines
“The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual journeys for people are all different. If I can help one person vibrate at a higher frequency through vitality; every person’s path they cross will also be affected in a positive way because that person will have a better sense of health, love and gratitude and that state is contagious” – Dr. Debrah Zepf
Rules for Essential Oils Safety by Dr. Debrah Zepf PhD IMD
- Essential Oils MUST be diluted with some type of vegetable oil. Oils and water don’t mix.
- Essential oils must NEVER come in contact with mucous membranes and sensitive skin areas
- NEVER add undiluted essential oils to bath water. Always blend with milk and/or bath salts
- Never go into the sun with any citrus oil. It may cause skin sensitivity or burns. Some essential oils are light sensitive.
- ALL essential oils are flammable. USE CAUTION.
- Ensure that your essential oils are of impeccable quality for internal use and use under the direction of a qualified practitioner.
- ALWAYS keep essential oils out of reach of children.
- ALWAYS close all essential oil bottles tightly after use and ensure that the bottles have a reducer to avoid accidents. The oils are volatile and will evaporate into the air quickly.
- Children under 30 months should NEVER HAVE MENTHOLS used near the throat, neck or mucous membranes.
- ALWAYS have a carrier oil (veggie or olive) of good quality, available for emergency dilution of an essential oil.
- Generally, people with allergies and/or sensitivities, must be very cautious with essential oils. The least sensitive area for almost all people is the SOLES OF THE FEET, so try a patch text of the essential oil there first.
- Some essential oils have strong caustic/phenol characteristics and should be used in a diluted form. e.g.: savory, clove, cinnamon.
