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 Base Formula or a qualified local aromatherapist for more advice.

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. Please seek professional advice prior to using aromatherapy whilst pregnant.

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 sensitization and skin discoloration in bright sunlight. Use of these oils should be avoided in sunny weather.
