Operating and Safety Instructions

Regardless you are planning to use a cold air diffuser  "or" an ultrasonic diffuser, any diffuser must not be kept on for 24 hours. As essential oils are highly concentrated extracts of plants material, its exposure to human has to be kept at minimum. There are no FDA regulated guidelines around what is considered safe vs. harmful to humans, therefore everyone must use caution while using any essential oil products purchased from us or from any other source.

Air diffusers must be operated in a highly ventilated areas.

Why Young Children Should Avoid Certain Essential Oils

While research on the effects of essential oils on children is thin, and the ethics of which is widely debated in the alternative and complementary healthcare community, two small studies have shown some oils may be potentially harmful to hormone production in youth. For example:

Many experts also warn against lavender and tea tree essential oils, as both have been found to contain chemicals that have physiological effects similar to estrogen.

 What’s more, they inhibit the effects of androgen, the sex hormone that controls male characteristics. Past research suggests that the lavender and tea tree oil in personal care products may have been responsible for prepubertal gynecomastia (enlarged breast tissue in boys prior to puberty) in three young boys.

More recent case studies found similar effects in three prepubertal girls and one boy who used fragrances containing lavender essential oil.

While more research is needed to determine how lavender and tea tree oil may affect hormones, Davila recommends approaching both with caution. Avoid using them daily at high doses. Occasional use (once or twice a week) for short period of time (several weeks) may be fine, for adults.

Who Might Want to Try (and Avoid) Essential Oils

Essential oils show promise as a therapeutic modality for a wide range of health concerns, including anxiety, sleep issues, nausea, and pain.

That said, they’re not appropriate for everyone. Pregnant women, for example, should speak with a professional healthcare provider before using essential oils, as essential oils can cross the placental barrier.

“Typically, it’s recommended not to use them during the first trimester. If you use them in the second or third trimesters, limit yourself to the floral or citrus oils and use them for aromatherapy versus topical use,” Davila says.

And while essential oils aren’t off-limits for people with allergies and sensitive skin, these folks should approach them with caution when it comes to physical application, Davila warns. 

Dechen doesn’t recommend using essential oils on infants or children younger than 5 years old, and being careful when using them with a chronic condition or medication. “There has been a lot of research over the last 10 to 15 years about how people taking medications can get reactions from different essential oils,” she says.

For example, past research suggests frankincense oil (Boswellia serrata) may interact with blood thinners like warfarin.

 Check with your doctor before using essential oils if you take any medications.

Tips for Getting Started With Essential Oils

Before you get started with essential oils, you should determine your purpose for using them, as this will inform which oils you use. For example, if better sleep and stress relief are your wellness goals, you’ll want to opt for a calming essential oil like lavender, chamomile, basil, or frankincense. Meanwhile, stimulating oils like bergamot and peppermint oil may be better suited to people with depression or lower energy levels.

That said, choosing an essential oil is highly individual, so you may benefit from consulting a qualified aromatherapist.

What’s more, when and how often you use the essential oil may vary depending on your intended use. But no matter which essential oil(s) you choose, it’s important to use each with caution. Check that there are no contraindications for the essential oils you plan to use.

Once you’ve landed on the oils you want to try — and checked that there are no safety issues — head online or visit a holistic healthcare store. (Essential oils are available at aromatherapy shops, grocery stores, and supplement stores.)

The quality of essential oils vary widely, and there are a number of factors that affect it, including the plants used, processing methods, packaging and handling, and storage. Therefore, you should research to ensure the oils you choose are of quality, as advertised.

Here are a few things to look for when shopping for an essential oil:

  • The Latin name of the plant
  • The name of the country where the plants where grown
  • A statement about the purity of the oil

You should also determine what application method you’d like to use. Inhalation via diffuser, steam, bath, aroma stick, or dry evaporation tends to be less irritating to the skin and works faster than topical applications.
