  • Several oils, like bergamot and other citrus, can cause allergic sensitivity to the sun and should be used with caution.

  • Essential oils are flammable, so keep them away from open flames.
  • Never ingest essential oils unless it is under the close supervision and prescription of a clinically-trained medical or aroma therapeutic professional. Some oils can be toxic, and if taken internally may be fatal. If you don’t know the specific chemistry of the oil, do not take it internally.
