Lesson 2: Essential Oil Safety
Before we begin to dive into Essential Oils, it’s important to know the safety protocol before you begin use. You can watch the video lead by doTERRA’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. David Hill D.C., or make sure you follow these safety guidelines:
- Yes, essential oils are safe for kids
- Avoid getting oils in eyes or ears. If you do get a little oil in sensitive areas, make sure you wash out the oils with olive, vegetable or fractionated coconut oils. Remember, oil does not mix with water so flushing oils out with water will not help.
- Make sure to wash your hands after applying oils.
- Before using an oil, make sure to look at the label from doTERRA’s product guide for usage or directions.
- Citrus oils such as lemon, lime, orange are photosensitive and cause discoloration of the skin. Avoid being in the sun after applying topically.
After a few uses, you will remember the best way to use your favorite oils but when you’re starting out, it’s good to double-check which oils are labeled:
I – Internal use – safe to swallow in small amounts
T- Topical use – safe to apply on the body and skin
A- Aromatically – safe to diffuse in your diffuser
Note: Make sure to take a look at your sensitivity chart to dilute an oil properly. If you have particularly sensitive skin, I recommend the doTERRA Touch line that has the most beneficial oils already diluted for you.
