****As with any new product, or products containing essential oils, always perform a patch test before using on large areas of skin. Essential oils are volatile and extremely concentrated. As a general rule, they are not to be used directly on the skin, but should be diluted in a carrier oil.
To perform a patch test, simply rub a small amount of the products on a small area of skin. Wait 24 hours to check for a reaction. If there is redness, itching or swelling, wash area with soap and water and discontinue use.
