Contraindications: ‘Opoponax is phytotoxic (it reacts to ultraviolet light, causing possible blistering and inflammation of the skin), so shouldn’t be applied directly to the skin.’
Please note: Essential oils can be used with water in your diffuser. But your essential oils must be blended with a carrier oil before coming into contact with the skin. (Please see further guidelines for use below)
General Guidelines for Using Undiluted Essential Oils: Do not apply undiluted essential oils directly to the skin. Undiluted essential oils should be kept away from the delicate eye area, unattended children, pets and all highly polished surfaces. Do not use undiluted oils on children under the age of three. If you are pregnant you must seek the advice of your doctor, midwife or aromatherapist before using essential oils. Do not take essential oils internally. Do not use or put your bottles of essential oil near a naked flame, fire, or any source of ignition.
