For the best effects, it is advisable to buy pure essential oils. Products containing synthetic ingredients will not provide the same degree of benefit.

A word of caution about essential oils: The essential oils supplied with Aroma4U products are 100% pure and natural, but even natural products can have side effects if not used properly, and some degree of care is needed when handling them. Pure undiluted essential oils should not (in general) be used directly on the skin. Do not take essential oils internally. Essential oils should be kept away from children, pets and the eyes. Essential oils are also very volatile and, therefore flammable – keep them away from naked flames. Aromatherapy products are never to be used in place of medical treatment. If you are pregnant, epileptic, suffering from high blood pressure or already taking medication consult your medical practitioner or a qualified aromatherapist.

The essential oils info provided above is for general information, and are not intended to substitute for informed professional medical, psychiatric, psychological, legal, or other professional advice.
