Essential oils can be safely used to enhance well-being, as part of a healthy lifestyle. They are used by millions of people every day, most of them without incident. However, essential oils are powerful substances and can be harmful if not used with due care and diligence. The essential oil in a bottle is times more concentrated than in the plant, and safety issues apply to essential oils that may not apply to the whole plant or herbal extract. The rise in popularity of essential oils together with, very often, insufficient information on safety precautions in using them, coincides with an increased prevalence of adverse reactions, and it is likely that these are linked. Which is why the Tisserand Institute has these Safety Pages, to help you use essential oils in an efficient and safe manner. Knowing how to calculate dilutions is crucial to the safe practice of aromatherapy.
