Consult a knowledgeable reference for indications and contra-indications before use. If you are uncertain, it is always advisable to use a smaller amount or consult a knowledgeable professional. In the interest of safety, please do not take essential oils internally or use essential oils on children under six years without the advice of a health care professional. Please keep all essential oils out of the reach of children.
