Some Notes About Safety

Be Careful Using them Around the Eyes

Essential Oils are very potent and concentrated, so be careful about getting them in and around your eyes. They shouldn't do any permanent damage, but they can definitely burn and cause irritation for thirty minutes or more.

Citrus Oils are Photosensitive

Citrus essential oils are photosensitive, which means that if you go out in the sunlight within 30 minutes of putting it on skin that's exposed to sunlight, you're much more like getting sunburned. Citrus essential oils include but are not limited to lemon, bergamot, grapefruit, orange, and tangerine.

Make Sure to Dilute Your Essential Oils

Add them to Your Face Lotion

Once you get your lotion out of the jar or bottle, add a drop or two of the essential oil you'd like to choose and mix it into your lotion, then rub it on your face.
