Essential oils are widely used in cosmetics in highly diluted form. However the essences in their concentrated form are very powerful - powerful enough to be antiseptic - and should be treated with respect and knowledge.
A patch test should be performed before first using essential oils for self help or professional use. A dab of diluted oil is applied to the sensitive skin of the inner elbow.
If skin redness occurs wash the area clean and avoid that essential oil.
Other safety considerations
The citrus ois will oxidise when opened, should be regularly replaced and stored in a fridge or cool dark place out of sunlight.
Some oils are not edible and can be dangerous if ingested. Keep out of reach of babies and small children.
If essential oil is put it the eye flush the eye with milk.
