SAFETY

If oxidized, it may cause irritation or sensitization. It may antidote homeopathic remedies. Tisserand’s recommended dermal maximum is 1.9% due to potential presence of methyl eugenol and estragole content.

Care must be taken if using 1,8 cineole rich oils for people with asthma, as it is possible to set off an attack. This is an individual response to the oil, dose, application, and specific situation. Studies also show that 1,8 cineole can be of benefit in respiratory disorders by its anti-­inflammatory effect on the airways, allowing reduction in oral steroid dosage.

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.

Always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil.
