Part 5: The Appropriate Dose

(Topical Application) - Sensitive Areas

Some areas of the skin are especially sensitive, so use of essential oils should be avoided in these areas. It is also important to remember that essential oils are very potent and may linger on the hands or fingers after topical application. After applying oils with your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. Avoid rubbing or touching the face and eyes after applying oil as these areas tend to be very sensitive to essential oils.

Sensitive Areas to be Avoided:

  • Some facial areas, such as the skin around the eyes
  • Eyes
  • Inner ears
  • Genitals
  • Broken, damaged, or otherwise injured skin
