Essential Oil – Safety First

Essential Oil – Safety First

Are you curious about incorporating the germ fighting benefits of aromatherapy into your lifestyle when you have pets, young children or medical issues which need to be considered? It’s pretty easy actually, when you have issues like this it’s important to treat the environment, and not the individuals who live in it.

A good example of this practice is when teachers are concerned about germs in the classroom but should never, ever expose their students to the chemicals in essential oils What they do is diffuse a blend of essential oils which have scientifically proven effects on killing germs, after the children have gone home for the day. Then the classroom is aired out with fresh air before the students return. So the environment is treated, not the children who may have allergies, asthma, or be subject to adverse reactions to direct inhalation.

In the home especially, parents really need to be aware that direct inhalation of essential oils should only be done after careful research and not casually!

Until a couple of years ago we had both a bird and a dog as pets, so I did not actively diffuse any EOs in the living room where the bird lived. Our dog was elderly so he stayed only on the main level so in those rooms I only used DIY cleaning products or passively diffused EOs which were “food” based essential oils like lemon or orange. That way the dog would not be exposed to concentrations higher than if we were peeling oranges or squeezing lemons for foods we ate.

Passive diffusing of essential oils is a really simple, gentle and easy way to get started with aromatherapy environmental fragrance.

You can put a cotton ball into a ceramic dish and just drip a few drops onto the cotton ball and allow the warmth of the room to cause them to evaporate into the room. Another alternative is a bowl of warm water with EOs floating on top.

To learn more please watch this video. NOTE: if you are planning to move beyond passive diffusion in a room and want to try direct inhalation, please read more about the essential oil you are thinking about using first, some are not appropriate for direct inhalation as they may irritate the mucus membranes or lungs. Direct inhalation as an essential oil application method is contraindicated for asthmatics and those with respiratory allergies.
