Are essential oils safe?
The short answer is yes, when talking about doTERRA essential oils.
There are some essential oil safety guidelines that you should follow:
1. Always read the label before you use an essential oil for the first time.
2. Citrus oils, specifically, can be photosensitive - again check labels for sun sensitivity warnings.
3. Dilute (using a carrier oil - like fractionated coconut oil) with sensitivity skin and when using "hot" oils, like Oregano, Clove, Cinnamon, Thyme, etc.
4. Avoid using essential oils in nose, ears, and eyes
