Pregnant women, epileptics, and children may choose to avoid the use of coriander, even though its 4% camphor is not enough to be concerned over. The real concern with camphor is associated with internal use or neat use of an oil high in camphor.

If pregnant, nursing or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician or clinical certified aromatherapist. For external use only. Keep away from mucous membranes & eyes. Test a small amount on skin for allergic reaction. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid using on infants and small children under the age of five years old.

Always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil.
