Caution: For external use only. Always dilute with a carrier oil. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care. Always do a patch test* in the inside of the forearm to check for skin irritation and sensitivity before using any of our products.
If pregnant, breastfeeding or taking medication, we recommend consulting with your health care practitioner before using.
Certain essential oils (such as ginger, cumin and citrus essential oils) are phototoxic which means they can cause a skin reaction when exposed to the sun. This Bergamot Furocoumarin-free essential oil has had its furocoumarin compounds (mainly bergapten and 8-methoxypsoralen) removed which makes this essential oil safer to use on the skin before sun exposure.
* Patch test with essential oils: Dilute 1-2 drops of essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil…) and place a pea size amount of the diluted mixture to your inner forearm. Place a bandage over it and wait for 24 hours. If there is a reaction within that time frame, discontinue use of essential oil.
