However, if inhaled directly, may irritate nasal membranes (e.g. if sniffing from undiluted bottle directly). (I) Internal: suitable for internal use with proper guidance from health care or medical practitioner. NOTE: this is a "hot" blend and should not be used beyond the recommended dermal use levels to avoid irritation/sensitization. If irritation occurs, immediately dilute with more carrier oil. The maximum dermal use level is 1 drop per 8mL carrier due to potential skin irritation issues. Maximum adult daily dose not to exceed 36 drops.
