What does therapeutic grade mean?
Basically, it means the oils are pure enough to be taken internally and they have the chemical constituents in them that provide results that we want, like less anxiety and pain relief, and immune system support.
Young Living never accepts diluted, cut, or adulterated oils.
Below are some guidelines that will help you have an enjoyable experience and provide better overall results.
- Always test for skin sensitivity and keep a bottle of V-6 vegetable oil, coconut oil or , Water does not help.
- Read the complete label before using essential oils.
- Keep bottles of essential oils tightly closed and store them in a cool location away from children. If a child swallows an essential oil, administer milk, honey or another safe, oil-soluble liquid such as milk or almond milk.
- Do not use essential oils rich in menthol (such as Peppermint) on the throat or neck area of children under 30 months (2 1/2 years) of age.
- The citrus-based oils of Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange and Tangerine as well as oil blends with a heavy citrus concentration such as White Angelica and Purification should not be used on areas of the skin that will be exposed to the sun or UV rays within 72 hours. They may cause an increased reaction to the sun.
- Keep essential oils away from the eyes and out of your ears. Do not handle contact lenses or rub your eyes with essential oils on your fingers. If the oils should get into your eyes, soothe with a drop of vegetable oil, not water.
- Oils with a high phenol content (a phenol is an oxygenated compound found in the oil….phenols are also classified as skin and mucus membrane irritants and although they have great antiseptic qualities, like cinnamon and clove oil, they can cause severe skin reactions)- Oregano, Helichrysum, Cinnamon, Thyme, Clove, Lemongrass, Bergamot, Thieves, and ImmuPower – may damage contact lenses and irritate eyes. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before handling contacts. Keep vegetable oil handy in case these oils irritate skin.
- Epileptics and those with high blood pressure should consult their health care professional before using some essential oils. Avoid Hyssop, Fennel and Idaho Tansy oils.
- Before taking GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe by the FDA) essential oils internally, always dilute with an oil soluble liquid like honey, olive oil or milk.
- Do not add undiluted essential oils directly to bath water. Use an oil carrier (adding your drops of essential oil to the base) as a dispersing agent for oils in the bath.
- Pregnant women should consult their health care professional before using essential oils containing constituents with hormone-like activity, such as Clary Sage, Sage, Idaho Tansy, Juniper and Fennel.
