Aromatherapy Essential Oil Chart Tips

  • Before using any products on the essential oil chart, read the directions on the label carefully. Essential oils are potent substances; they often will need to be diluted before use. They can burn or irritate the skin, eyes and mucous membranes if not handled properly.
  • Use small quantities of oils; only a few drops are needed.
  • Store your oils in a dark, cool place.
  • Children or pregnant/breastfeeding women should not use essential oils without first talking to their doctor or an integrative physician.
  • If you have a respiratory condition such as asthma, avoid inhaling the oils.

  • Lemon is the go to fragrance for me that in aromatherapy uses is uplifting and energizing. It also helps me to be able to concentrate better.

  • I studied with the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy about 20 years ago and besides being a certified aesthetician and authoring a number of books on skin care and beauty, I developed my own 100% ORGANIC moisturizer made of 11 different organic essential oils.

  • I have lemon grass oil, wanting to put it into a bottle with the sticks, for nice fragrance in the bathroom, and how many drops of the oil do I mix with the other oil I put into the bottle?
