                                      Skin-patch Test for Undiluted Oil
                                      * Never drop 100% pure essential oil onto the skin as it has stinging and dryness effect to your skin. Customer can smell the scent from a distance.
                                      * If you wish to test before massage/or apply on the skin, you need to mix 1 drop of the essential and a teaspoon (5 ml) of carrier oil - example grape seed oil.
                                      * Place one drop in the crook of your arm, at the elbow. Then bring your hand up to your shoulder and hold it for 3-5 minutes. If there is no redness or itching, it is safe to use the oil.
                                      * If you have never used any form of carrier oil on your skin, it would be advisable to first do a skin patch test using only the carrier oil.

                                      What to do if you have a reaction to essential oil?
                                      Gently swab the affected area with carrier oil or vegetable oil or milk & then wash with soap & water do not continue to use the product.

                                      Storage for Essential Oil
                                      * Do not put near warm/spot light area, heat, strong light or sunlight, moisture and extended exposure to oxygen which will cause essential oils and blends to degrade.
                                      * Keep essential oil in a dark, cool area, with the lid tightly on as soon as you are finished using them.
                                      * All straight citrus oils (Lemon, Lime should be refrigerated) as they have short shelf-life and are the most susceptible to being compromised.
                                      * Do not tilt the bottle; it should be standing position all time, as oil snip out easily even it is closed tight.  
                                       
                                      Precaution:  
                                      * Do not apply directly to skin; always dilute with carrier oil. Essential oils are very concentrated. Dilute all essential oils before applying to the skin, used carrier oil,  or in water as when used on a compress. Take special precautions with applications near delicate skin or eyes area.
                                      * Overexposure to essential oils, especially in confined areas, can cause dizziness, nausea, light headedness, headache, blood sugar imbalances, irritability, euphoria.
                                      * Store essential oils out of sun & extreme weather conditions
                                      * Keep away from children, eyes, mucous membranes, open flames & treasured surfaces
                                      Should you have any questions or concerns, please consult with a trusted wellness consultant or aestheticians before taking or using any essential oils
