Do not take essential oils internally unless under the supervision of an expert and qualified practitioner. Many essential oils are not appropriate or safe to ingest under any circumstance. May irritate sensitive skin. Never use undiluted essential oils directly on the skin. Always do a small patch test of diluted essential oil on the inner arm and cover with tape or a small bandage for 24 hours before applying elsewhere on the body.
