SAFETY FIRST

Before we get into this further, we wanted to mention that one AMAZING thing about grabbing your oils from someone on this team means that you have back-up!! And you don't have to remember all these details - we're always here to chat with you about all things oily!

Safety is very important when it comes to using essential oils. It's easy to get overwhelmed with all of the information available, but using common sense and starting gradually will help ease any sort of intimidation you might feel as you begin using essential oils in your everyday life on yourself and your family. 

A reference guide, the suggestion of an oily friend, and books like “Gentle Babies” by Debra Raybern and “The Essential Oil Truth” by Jen O’Sullivan are all ways to help us be safe AND boost confidence as we start using essential oils. Due to the fact that Young Living’s purity and grade of oils is so high, they should be used with knowledge and respect.

Here’s a few of their suggestions…⠀

1.When storing essential oils (EOs), it's important to keep them in a cool, dark place with lids tightly closed (and always out of reach of children). You'll also want to keep carrier oils (like coconut, olive, vitamin e, sweet almond oil, etc.) on hand for dilution. Always use and store EOs in glass containers, especially when drinking them in water, since most plastic products contain chemicals that can be broken down by essential oils. ⠀

2. Citrus oils are photosensitive and when applied to skin, they may cause a rash or dark pigmentation on skin exposed to UV rays or direct sunlight within 1-2 days after application. (Applying them to bottoms of your feet is a great alternative when the sunshine is out)

3. Keep EOs away from eyes and never put them directly into the ears. Should irritation or accidental contact with eyes occur, never use water to clear the EO (they are not water-soluble)!! Instead use the V6 vegetable oil complex or other carrier oil (such as coconut oil or sweet almond oil) to cleanse the area and reduce discomfort.

4. Epileptics and people with high blood pressure should use extra caution when using EOs with high ketones like basil, rosemary, sage, or tansy.

5. For people with allergies or sensitive skin, it's best to test a small area (like the inside of the upper arm) then wait 30 minutes before applying to other areas. In general, the bottoms of the feet are safe for topical application.⠀

6. Young Living states right on the bottles if an oil is able to be consumed as a food additive. DO NOT use any Essential Oil internally that is not specifically indicated for that purpose.⠀

7. Trust your gut and ask questions. There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding essential oils, especially on Pintrest or floating around on the internet. When you grab your starter kit, you’ll have access to some really amazing fb communities that have great info & recipes. I highly recommend checking out The Human Body & Essential Oils page on fb as well.
