    How to Use Essential Oils for Cuts and Scrapes…Safely!

    by Andrea Butje on March 25, 2019

    In Aromahead Institute’s popular class, Aromatherapy for Natural Living, I’ve created an entire lesson about using essential oils safely and effectively for children—including how to use essential oils for cuts and scrapes. 

    I want to share that blend with you. It’s made in a base of aloe vera gel, which is gentle on skin and supports healing.

    The three essential oils for cuts and scrapes in this blend are good at calming pain and inflammation, supporting healing, and cleaning out germs. (In fact, they’re so good at getting rid of germs, I often use these oils in natural cleaning blends. Yet they’re gentle enough for injured skin.)

    I like this blend because it allows you to use essential oils for cuts and scrapes safely—even for kids.

    Citrus Essential Oils: Avoiding Phototoxicity

    March 22, 2010

    Did you know that some citrus essential oils are not phototoxic? If you’ve been avoiding all citrus oils out of concerns over phototoxicity, you can still use a few citrus oils without worrying about potential phototoxic skin reactions. Citrus oils can generally be used without phototoxic concern if you stay within the proper safety guidelines. But for many aromatherapists, client compliance can be an issue--and even with compliance, there may be exceptions (someone might have a phototoxic reaction to a citrus oil even when used in the safe dilutions offered below). Likewise, if you’re a beginner, you may be uncomfortable keeping track of the dilution guidelines needed to ensure that phototoxic oils aren’t posing an issue. […]
