■ Some essential oils are very powerful and should always be diluted with a carrier like dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil before putting them on your skin . These oils include : Cassia , Cinnamon , Clove , Geranium , Lemongrass , Oregano and Thyme . These are known as hot oils . When trying these for the first time , consider a dilution ratio of one drop of essential oil to 10 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil .
■ Some essential oils cause photo-sensitivity , which may cause you to sunburn more easily . It ’ s best to stay out of UV light ( sunlight or tanning beds ) for at least 12 hours after applying them to your skin . These oils include : AromaTouch TM , Bergamot , dōTERRA Air TM , dōTERRA Cheer TM , Citrus Bliss TM , Elevation TM , dōTERRA Forgive TM , Grapefruit , InTune TM , Lemon , Lime , dōTERRA Motivate TM , dōTERRA On Guard TM , Purify , Smart & Sassy TM , Wild Orange and Zendocrine TM .

■ If your skin begins to turn red , itch or burn after applying an oil , remove the oil from the skin by gently wiping the area with a soft cloth , then alternate between adding a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil and gently wiping the area .
■ When consuming essential oils internally , a drop or two is all you need at one time . You can add oil directly to water or another liquid or place oil in an empty capsule and swallow .
■ Children are generally more sensitive to essential oils than adults . It ’ s best to dilute an essential oil before applying it topically on a child and to start with the feet for application . For babies under two years of age , aromatic application through a diffuser is a good place to start .
■ Because dōTERRA oils are so powerful , ensure that they are only used under adult supervision . dōTERRA recommends that you keep your oils in a high , out-of-reach place . Store oils with the included orifice reducer in the bottle and the lid tightly closed .
■ If you have any questions about using essential oils for your particular needs , talk to your qualified healthcare provider .
