When using Essential Oils it is very important to adhere to the recommended dosage to achieve the desired effect. Using too much can result in negative results - for instance, skin damage, headache or nausea. Essential Oils should never be put directly on the skin; instead they should be diluted in a vegetable carrier oil such as Sweet Almond Oil or Grapeseed Oil. Essential Oils should never be ingested. Most Essential Oils should be avoiding during pregnancy - seek more information in an aromatherapy book by looking up each oil for precautions.
