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

  1. Essential Oils MUST be diluted with some type of vegetable oil. Oils and water don’t mix.
  2. Essential oils must NEVER come in contact with mucous membranes and sensitive skin areas
  3. NEVER add undiluted essential oils to bath water. Always blend with milk and/or bath salts
  4. Never go into the sun with any citrus oil. It may cause skin sensitivity or burns. Some essential oils are light sensitive.
  5. ALL essential oils are flammable. USE CAUTION.
  6. Ensure that your essential oils are of impeccable quality for internal use and use under the direction of a qualified practitioner.
  7. ALWAYS keep essential oils out of reach of children.
  8. 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.
  9. Children under 30 months should NEVER HAVE MENTHOLS used near the throat, neck or mucous membranes.
  10. ALWAYS have a carrier oil (veggie or olive) of good quality, available for emergency dilution of an essential oil.
  11. 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.
  12. Some essential oils have strong caustic/phenol characteristics and should be used in a diluted form. e.g.: savory, clove, cinnamon.
