Essential oils have some amazing medicinal and therapeutic properties if used properly, but they can also be dangerous if not used properly.
Every plant and every human body are different. You cannot be sure how your own or another’s body will react to exposure to materials foreign to it, including pure and natural materials such as essential oils and other plant derivatives. It is therefore important always to test the application of body care items in small amounts and on limited areas before full or repeated application. You should make yourself aware of any indications of irritation or adverse reactions.
In the unlikely event of irritation or adverse reactions, stop application and immediately remove from your body. If adverse reactions continue after removal seek the assistance of a trained healthcare provider.
For adult use only. Avoid if pregnant or nursing.
If you suffer from a siesure disorder it’s best to avoid Basil, Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
If you have cancer, you can certainly benefit from the use of essential oils. However, you will have to take some precautions and avoid some essential oils all together.
When you have cancer, there are essential oils that you’ll want to avoid at all costs. These essential oils include aniseed, basil, bay, clove, cinnamon, fennel, laurel, nutmeg and star anise.
Although many of these essential oils are safe to use on healthy persons, people with cancers of any kind should take care not to use them. They could cause adverse affects, depending on the type of cancer. Remember, it’s always better safe than sorry!
When you have estrogen dependant cancer, there are even more essential oils you should avoid. These essential oils include citronella, eucalyptus, lemongrass, verbena and the essential oils listed above for general cancers.
Using Essential Oils with Cancer – Essential Oils to Avoid with Skin Cancers
When you have skin cancer, there are still more essential oils that shouldn’t be used at all. These oils include bergamot and all sun sensitizing oils. Sun sensitizing essential oils will cause the skin to be more sensitive to sunlight, which of course you don’t want with skin cancer. These essential oils also cause sunburn and skin damage to occur much more rapidly when applied to the skin.
Essential oils that may cause sun sensitivity include angelica, dill, lemon verbena, orange and mandarin. There are other essential oils that may cause sun sensitivity but only when they are cold pressed. These cold-pressed phototoxic oils include bitter orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime and tangerine.
