General precautions
As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep out of reach of children. If applying an essential oil to the skin it is recommended to first dilute the oil and to conduct a small skin test on a non-sensitive part of the body. This will clarify whether or not you have a sensitivity to the oil in question.
