    Safety Advice- Essential Oil & Oil Blends

Essential oils are highly concentrated, powerful liquids. Their potency must be respected and they can be toxic if used incorrectly. The way you handle and use essential oils is very important. Please read the following advice to help ensure that you use essential oils safely and effectively. Please note that this list does not constitute a complete safety reference. If you are unsure please contact us or a qualified local aromatherapist for more advice.

  • Certain essential oils are flammable liquids.

  • Keep out of the reach of children.

  • If you have a medical condition and are taking any medication or undergoing any type of medical treatment you should check with your doctor and a qualified aromatherapist to ensure that it is safe to use aromatherapy in conjunction with your prescribed treatment.

  • Certain essential oils should be avoided during pregnancy

  • Always consult a qualified aromatherapist before using essential oils with babies and children.

  • Never take essential oils orally and avoid all contact with the mouth area and eyes.

  • Essential oils should never be applied undiluted to the skin as they can cause irritation (there are only a couple of exceptions to this rule i.e. Lavender and Tea Tree). Follow all recipes and methods carefully and do not increase the amount of essential oil quoted.

  • Certain essential oils (i.e. spices) can cause skin irritation for people with sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin we recommend performing a small patch test prior to using any new oil or product.

  • A few essential oils such as Bergamot and other citrus oils are phototoxic which means they can cause skin sensitisation and skin discolouration in bright sunlight. These oils should be not be applied to the skin before direct exposure to sunlight.

  • Certain essential oils should be avoided at all times

More Information on Safe Use of Essential Oils


Many essential oils are flammable, so never use or put your bottles of essential oil near a naked flame, fire, or any source of ignition.

Undiluted essential oils

Do not apply undiluted essential oils directly to the skin except in an emergency; for example to cuts, burns or insect bites. A single drop of undiluted Lavender, Tea Tree or Chamomile Roman oil can be used to soothe and protect from infection – but you should only apply them neat once or twice. Some individuals can become sensitised to the oil if it is applied repeatedly.

Never use undiluted oils on children under the age of 3. Their under-developed and delicate organs cannot excrete the oils or deal with their metabolites efficiently.


If you are pregnant you should seek the advice of a medical practitioner, mid-wife or aromatherapist before using any essential oils. Once the use of essential oils has been endorsed by the medical practitioner, midwife or aromatherapist then they should be used only after the first trimester, and at a 1% concentration only, being half the normal strength.

It is a good idea to seek the advice of your supplier or aromatherapist to ensure that the essential oils you are thinking of using are not contraindicated during pregnancy. There is a lot of misinformation about precisely which essential oils should not be used and some aromatherapy books produce a huge list of contraindicated oils that are completely out of proportion to the facts.

Much of this misinformation is based on the internal use of the plant in herbal preparations, and this is certainly not the same as the external use of a diluted essential oil in massage. Most essential oil experts argue that since many contraindicated essential oils are used as food additives they can hardly be considered dangerous.

If you have a history of miscarriage do not use any essential oils at any time during your pregnancy. 

Essential oils best avoided throughout your pregnancy include:

  • Camphor (Cinnamomum camphora)

  • Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis)

  • Sage (Salvia officinalis)

  • Savin oil (Juniperus sabina) – Never use in aromatherapy

Babies, infants and young children

As already stated, NEVER use any essential oils undiluted on babies or children.

Internal use

Never take essential oils internally, unless under the guidance of a qualified aromatherapist who has received the necessary training in this very specialised mode of administration. Most aromatherapists have not had this training, so be sure to check this out first.

You may read articles in magazines and books extolling the virtues of taking essential oils internally, but you should absolutely never attempt this without expert guidance.

Irritants and sensitisers

Some essential oils can irritate the skin if used in too high a concentration or for a long period of time. The essential oils below represent the most commonly known among this group.

  • Bay Leaf oil (Pimenta racemosa)

  • Cinnamon bark oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum)

  • Clove oils (stem, leaf, bud) Syzygium aromaticum

  • Litsea Cubeba aka May Chang oil (Litsea cubeba)

  • Origanum oil (Origanum vulgar)

  • Tagette oil (Tagetes minuta)

  • Thyme white and red oil (Thymus vulgaris)

  • Use no more than 3 or 4 drops of citrus oils in the bath since some may irritate sensitive skin.


Photosensitivity, also known as photoirritation or phototoxicity, is a chemically induced skin irritation that can occur when you topically apply certain essential oils and expose your skin to UV light too soon. 

Some examples of the irritation you can experience are:

  • Redness

  • Burning

  • Itching

  • Blistering

  • Skin discoloration

  • Inflammation
