FAQs About Southern Comfort Essential Oils

Are any of these oils photosensitive and will burn my skin?
Potentially. Some essential oils may cause burns if your skin is exposed to sunlight after applying the oil, especially citrus oils, like lemon. That's because compounds found in citrus oils—known as furanocoumarins—greatly increase UV sensitivity. Research any essential oil product before applying so you are aware.
Can essential oils be used internally?
Not recommended. Essential oils are extremely concentrated. If taken internally it may cause serious damage. Please consult with a doctor, or someone who is qualified in the internal use of essential oils, before taking internally.
How do I use these?
The most common way to use essential oils is to inhale them. They have amazing scents and therapeutic properties. Essential oils can also be used in diffusers and humidifiers, as well as diluted with a carrier oil and applied to the skin.
How should my essential oils be stored?
Make sure the bottle is tightly sealed and kept stored in an upright position, in a cool, dry location. Some people do store their essential oils in their fridge.
Are Essential Oils Safe For Children?
Children are more at risk from adverse skin reactions and breathing problems because their skin is thinner (not as mature as adults), their metabolism is less effective than adults and they are more susceptible to having respiratory issues. Before applying essential oils to children, please consult with their doctor or medical professional for guidance.
Are Essential Oils Safe If I Am Pregnant?
Consult your physician before applying any essential oils if you are pregnant. Some oils may be dangerous to use when pregnant.
