Firstly it's always best to check if you are sensitive to any oil you want to use on your skin. To test if you’re sensitive to lavender oil, place a drop on the fleshy part between your hand and thumb. If no redness or itching develops, you’re most likely not sensitive to the oil. It is also important to keep all essential oils out of the reach of children and avoid contact with your eyes.

Some of the essential oils that are widely acknowledged as safe to use undiluted on the skin are: Lavender, Tea Tree and Sandalwood.

Lavender Oil can be combined with carrier oils, lotions, or other diluting measures to use directly on the skin.

The oil in the Rollerballs and Dropets is considered the best option for direct use on your body; it is less concentrated but no less potent. Rub the Rollerball oil on your feet, temples, insect bites or scars, grazes and burns.

It is also important that you never use an undiluted essential oil on a baby or child, as children have much thinner, more delicate skin than adults have, and tend to be very sensitive to the potency of essential oils.

If you are pregnant or nursing (we also advise avoiding Essential oils completely in your first trimester)
