How to apply: (T) Topical: Dilute the oil with a carrier oil (e.g. coconut oil and almond oil are common carriers) and apply to the concerned area. (D) Diffusion: Can be used in diffusers. However, if inhaled directly, may irritate nasal membranes (e.g. if sniffing from an undiluted bottle directly). (I) Internal: Suitable for internal use with proper guidance from a healthcare 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.
