Usage FAQs

Where I see how to do I use the products?

Each essential oil formula has a direction for how to use it. Please consult the product label for appropriate usage directions.

What I do if I have experience skin discomfort or irritation?

We recommend using a patch test procedure prior to first use. To perform a patch test, apply 1–2 drops of essential oil formula to a skin area such as the forearm. Observe that area of skin for any noticeable reaction; however, reactions occur usually within 5–10 minutes. If you experience a hot or burning sensation or develop a rash, discontinued the use and apply any carrier-oil (olive, coconut) and consult your doctor.

Never attempt to dilute the oil with water, but water actually drives oil into the skin and eyes. If essential oil gets in your eye, flush with carrier oil (olive, coconut) as quickly as possible to alleviate any discomfort. If eye discomfort does not subside within 5 minutes, seek medical attention.
