Aromatherapy associations suggest dilution in a carrier oil of your choice, such as House of Aromatics organic cold-pressed Jojoba oil. Add 8-12 drops essential oil to 1 one ounce carrier oil.  Do not over do! Diffuse via steam or gentle heat, generally NOT all the time (especially around children). Herbal formulas & teas can be best during pregnancy, nursing & child/elderhood, so if pregnant/nursing/etc. consult your wellness practitioner before incorporating essential oils into your life style. Handle carefully around children, elders and pets. Use with Wisdom & Intention.

Avoid eyes and orifices. Always do a small test drop on the back of your hand to check for allergic reaction or skin irritation before further application. Should irritation occur, apply any vegetable type oil such as olive to diffuse the chemical reactions. 

External use only! Do not add to water and drink!!

Our Essential Oils contain No Carrier Oils, No Alcohol, and guaranteed NO Synthetics
