Before applying any EOs to the skin we suggest a patch test prior to use. This means that you apply 1-2 drops of oil to a patch of skin such as the forearm. Observe the skin for 1-2 hours for any reaction. If you experience a hot or burning sensation apply a carrier oil such as the V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex to the affected area.
Do not use water to remove the oil from skin as can cause more irritation, a carrier oil is best to alleviate the discomfort. Before using the EO again, dilute the oil with a carrier oil and try a patch test again.
