With the increasing popularity of essential oils, the reactions are increasing exponentially. If you have been following me for some time, or even just started, you know I am all about safety. SAFETY FIRST, ALWAYS!
Too many times I have heard the phrase in some form or another, "essential oils are natural, they cannot hurt you". Well, I am here to tell you, that isn't true. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Essential oils are highly concentrated, highly volatile aromatic compounds that are extremely powerful. They can do harm when not used correctly.
Now, with that said, I never want to scare you, or deter you from using these truly wonderful substances. They have helped my family and clients immensely, but we need to always make sure we are using them safely.
