The National Association for Hollistic Aromatherapy (NAHA)  recommends the following safety precautions:

*  As with all essential oils, never use undiluted without an appropriate carrier for external usage as described.

*  Avoid contact with eyes or mucus membranes.  

* Women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, should use caution with some essential oils, and should consult a licensed practitioner.

* Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.

* Keep out of reach of children.

* If topically applying an essential oil to skin through carrier, perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body, to determine usability.  

* Essential oils are highly flammable substances and should be kept away from direct contact with flames, such as candles, fire, matches, cigarettes, and gas cookers.


Possible Dermal Reactions
Of primary importance to the aromatherapists is the safety of essential oil application to the skin. Dermal or skin reactions that may occur with essential oils include: irritation, sensitization and phototoxicity/photosensitization.

     Dermal irritant
       A dermal irritant will produce an immediate effect of irritation on the skin. The reaction will be represented on the skin as blotchy or redness, which may be painful to some individuals. The severity of the                 reaction will depend on the concentration (dilution) applied.  Some common essential oils considered to be dermal irritants are as follows:  Cinnamon bark, Cinnamon leaf , Clove bud, Citronella, 

      Lemongrass, Oregano, Thyme

     Dermal sensitization
      Dermal sensitization is a type of allergic reaction. It occurs on first exposure to a substance, but on this occasion, the noticeable effect on the skin will be slight or absent. However, subsequent exposure to the       same material, or to a similar one with which there is cross-sensitization, produces a severe inflammatory reaction brought about by cells of the immune system (T-lymphocytes). The reaction will be

      represented on the skin as blotchy or redness, which may be painful to some individuals. The problem with dermal sensitization is that once it occurs with a specific essential oil the individual is most likely

     going to be sensitive to it for many years and perhaps for the remainder of his/her life. The best way to prevent sensitization is to avoid known dermal sensitizers and avoid applying the same essential oils

     every day for lengthy periods of time. Sensitization is, to an extent, unpredictable, as some individuals will be sensitive to a potential allergen and some will not.  The following oils are considered to be dermal

     sensitizers and are not recommended for use in aromatherapy massage: Cinnamon bark, Cypress.

    Photosensitization
     An essential oil that exhibits this quality will cause burning or skin pigmentation changes, such as tanning, on exposure to sun or similar light (ultraviolet rays). Reactions can range from a mild color change

     through to deep weeping burns. Do not use or recommend the use of photosensitizing essential oils prior to going into a sun tanning booth or the sun. Recommend that the client stay out of the sun or sun

     tanning booth for at least twenty-four hours after treatment if photosensitizing essential oils were applied to the skin. Certain drugs, such as tetracycline, increase the photosensitivity of the skin, thus increasing

     the harmful effects of photosensitizing essential oils under the necessary conditions.  Some common essential oils considered to be photosensitizers:  Bergamot, Grapefruit (low risk), Lemon, Lime, Orange.

     Non-phototoxic citrus oils:  Mandarin, Tangerine

Idiosyncratic irritation or sensitization
Idiosyncratic irritation or sensitization is an uncharacteristic or unusual reaction to a commonly used essential oil. This type of reaction is difficult to predict and rarely occurs but is a possibility.

    Mucous membrane irritant
     A mucous membrane irritant will produce a heating or drying effect on the mucous membranes of the mouth, eyes, nose, and reproductive organs. It is recommended that mucus membrane irritating essential

     oils not be used in a full body bath unless placed in a dispersant first (e.g., milk, vegetable oil). It would also be wise to put the dispersed essential oils into the water after you have gotten into the bath. Clove,

     cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme ct. thymol essential oils should be avoided in baths completely.  Some common essential oils considered to be mucous membrane irritants: Cinnamon bark, Cinnamon

     leaf, Clove bud, Clove leaf, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Thyme.


Pregnancy

The use of essential oils during pregnancy is a controversial topic and one that is yet to be fully understood. The main concern during pregnancy appears to be the risk of  essential oil constituents crossing over into the placenta. The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists has Safety Precaution Guidelines, which can be viewed here
