For Children

Children can benefit from aromatherapy through use in a diffuser or properly diluted topical application. Caution should be used as essential oils are heavily concentrated.

Children may have hidden allergies that will make certain essential oils off-limits. Speak to our licensed staff or aromatherapists to get it all necessary information before using the products. You may also consult an essential oil book or talk to your physician. Some essential oils can make the skin more sensitive in the sun and should not be used outdoors. Also, essential oils should

NEVER be applied on or near the face of a child.

New oils should be introduced GRADUALLY deemed safe for kids. Therefore, the dilution ratios for children for both diffusion and topical application are much lower than those for adults, as children are more susceptible to the effects of some essential oils.

 

Easy Reminders:

  • Ensure diffuser is used in an open, well-ventilated area of your
  • If diffusing an oil for the first time, carefully monitor your child for the first several minutes to see how they react to the scent. If they show signs of discomfort cease diffusion immediately and air out the area by opening windows and doors.
  • Never leave a running diffuser and a child
  • Keep your essential oils in a secure place and out of reach for

For Pets

We have to pay special attention on how we use essential oils on animals in a safe manner. So before using essential oils for your ferry friends, you need to know a couple of important information. If your pet is a dog, cat, or another animal; dosages and best way of introduction can vary greatly. We put general recommendations, tips and suggestions together. At the same time, we highly recommend consulting your veterinarian, as your pet may experience a medical condition, is pregnant, or is nursing.

 

General Recommendations

Be careful not to get any essential oils in an animal’s eyes. No essential oil should be used on dogs and cats under 8 weeks of age. It is easy to miscalculate the correct dilution measurements as the puppies and kittens grow at a much faster rate. Animals usually are more sensitive to essential oils than humans. We highly recommend heavily dilute and conservatively use the oil before introducing them to the pet. Since every animal is different, carefully observe your animals reactions. Watch for signs of irritation such as whining, sniffing, nervousness, or excessive scratching. Essential oils such as Clove, Oregano, Savory, Thyme, or Wintergreen should be avoided, especially with cats. For cats: Do not use citrus oils topically. When diffusing any oil, always give your cat the possibility to leave the room. If they cannot leave they will ingest the scented air.

 

For Pets

External / Topical Use

You may use topical application of essential oils once your pets are used to them. So starting with diffusing essential oils is first good step.

We suggest applying to the back of the dog or cat; rub your hands together until they no longer are shiny. Then rub on your pet. We don’t recommend using essential oils with cats on a daily basis. Please consult your veterinarian for further directions.

Apply to the spin and flanks for animals with hooves and put oils in places where they can evaporate. No oils should be rubbed in under any tack or saddles. We suggest using a spray bottle to get to those hard-to-reach places.

 

Internal Use

Before putting essential oils in your pet’s meal, we urge you to speak to a veterinarian first. Be reminded that animals have a very distinct sense of smell. When essential oils are added to a meal, your pet might not eat it. Make sure you heavily dilute the amount of essential oil before applying to places your animal licks as they groom or play. Observe your pet and ensure that the licks are minimal.

Please contact one of our licensed aromatherapists before using any products.

Science

 

Do essential oils really work? Here’s what Science says: The use of essential oils is cross-cultural and dates back thousands of years. It is well known that ancient Greek, Egyptians used essential oils on a regular basis and for many different reasons.

The National Institute of Health provides a thorough summary via the US National Library of Medicine of research conducted into the efficacy of essential oils. One of the scientific studies that have revealed positive results from essential oils involves patients with dementia. There is evidence that balm from lemon oil reduces agitation in patients with dementia according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

There are other proven success stories for essential oils, such as the treatment of acne with tea tree oil and the treatment of alopecia areata or hair loss with oils like thyme, rosemary, lavender and cedarwood. In the United States, essential oils do not need to be FDA approved.

Safety Notice

Essential oils are highly concentrated and powerful liquids. They can be toxic if used incorrectly and their power must not be underestimated. It is therefore very important that the way essential oils are handled and used is fully understood. This safety advice had been written to help ensure that the use of essential oils is safe and effective. Please note that this list does not constitute a complete safety reference. Contact us or a qualified local aromatherapist for more advice.

Flammability

Certain essential oils are flammable. Never use or put your bottles of essential oil near a naked flame, fire, or any source of ignition. External Use of Undiluted Essential Oils We urge you not to apply undiluted essential oils directly to the skin. However, exceptions are cuts, burns or insect bites, for example. Certain oils, such as Chamomile, Lavender, or Tea Tree can be used to soothe and protect from external infections.

Please consult with any of our staff beforehand.

Never use undiluted oils on children under the age of 3. Their yet to be developed organs cannot excrete the oils or deal with their metabolites efficiently.

 

Internal Use

Unless under the guidance of a qualified aromatherapist who has received the necessary training, do not take essential oils internally. We highly recommend conducting personal research. Using essential oils for internal use should never be attempted without expert guidance.

 

Irritants and Sensitizers

Some essential oils can irritate the skin if used in too high concentration of for a longer period of time, such as Bay Leaf oil (Pimenta racemosa), Cinnamon bark oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Clove oils (Syzygium aromaticum), Litsea Cubeba oil (May Chang), Origanum oil (Origanum vulgar), Tagette oil (Tagetes minuta), and Thyme white and red oil (Thymus vulgaris). No more than 3 or 4 drops of citrus oils in the bath should be used.

Photosensitivity

Photosensitivity is a chemically induced skin irritation. It can occur when certain essential oils are topically applied and your skin gets exposed to UV light too soon. Some examples of the irritation you can experience are: redness, burning, itching, blistering, skin discoloration, inflammation.

Some essential oils contain furocoumarins. Furocoumarins are naturally occurring organic chemical compounds. They act as a defense mechanism that the plant uses to ward off small animals or bugs in nature. Some of the most common furocoumarins are Oxypeucedanin and Bergapten, found in many citrus and cold-pressed oils. The main photosensitizing oils used in aromatherapy include: Angelica root oil (Angelica archangelica), Bergamot oil expressed (Citrus aurantium ssp. bergamia), Bitter Orange oil (Citrus aurantium), Cumin oil (Cuminum cyminum), Lemon oil cold pressed (Citrus limonum), Lime oil expressed (Citrus aurantifolia), Grapefruit oil (Citrus paradisi), and Tagette oil (Tagetes minuta).

We recommend avoiding the sun, tanning beds, or any UV light for 12 – 18 hours after you apply the oil to exposed skin, in order to reduce the effects of photosensitivity

 

 

Pregnancy

If you are pregnant, you should seek the advice of a medical practitioner and aromatherapist before using any essential oils. Once endorsed, the essential oils should only be used after the first trimester at a 1% concentration only. Essential oils that should be avoided be avoided throughout pregnancy are; Camphor (Cinnamomum camphora), Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis), Sage (Salvia officinalis), or Savin oil (Juniperus sabina) which should never be used in aromatherapy. We want to remind you that there is a lot of misinformation about exactly which essential oils should not be used.

Some books produce a huge list of contraindicated oils that are completely out of proportion to the facts. Most misinformation is based on the internal use of the plant in herbal preparations; this is definitely not the same as the external use of a diluted essential oil in massage therapy. Most essential oil experts argue that since many contraindicated essential oils are used as food additives, they can hardly be considered dangerous.

Babies, Infants and Children Never use any essential oils undiluted on babies up to 3 years old. Essential oils should be used at a fraction of the usual concentration. Calculate the amount of essential oil to be used by the bodyweight of the infant. Please contact one of our aromatherapist or your physician before using the products. Oils That Must be Avoided Some essential oils should never be used in aromatherapy due to the danger of toxicity, severe irritation, sensitization or other serious health risk. Those should only ever be used by trained specialists: Parsley herb oil (Petroselenium crispum), Pennyroyal oil (Mentha pulegium), Savin oil (Juniperus sabina), Tansy oil (Tanacetum vulgare), Wintergreen oil (Gaultheria procumbens), and Wormwood oil (Artemisia absinthium).
