SAFETY

If oxidized it can cause skin irritation or sensitization. The literature suggests that people with epilepsy, high blood pressure, and pregnant women should avoid Rosemary because of the camphor content. It can be a stimulating oil; avoid nighttime use. With children, use at no more than 1% (5-6 drops total in 1 ounce of carrier).  According to Robert Tisserand, however, he believes that there is no case for contraindicating any essential oil in someone with high blood pressure.
