Can You Apply Essential Oils Directly to the Skin?
For centuries, essential oils have been in existence and highly regarded for their therapeutic and aromatic advantages. These potent extracts derived from plants are renowned for their calming, curative, and soothing properties. Nevertheless, due to the overwhelming variety of essential oils available, it is easy to become overwhelmed and overlook safety precautions.
One of the most frequently asked questions about essential oils is whether they can be directly applied to the skin or if they require dilution. The answer is not straightforward and varies depending on several factors. In this blog, we explore why dilution is often necessary, learn how to dilute essential oils safely and discover which oils may be suitable for direct application on the skin.
Essential Oil Safety for Children
If you share our enthusiasm for essential oils and the art of aromatherapy, you probably have a collection of oils ready for any occasion in your medicine cabinet. When it comes to using essential oils for yourself, you likely don't think twice. However, when it comes to your children, you may feel a bit more hesitant.
There is a wealth of information, as well as misinformation, surrounding aromatherapy and its impact on children. We aim to help you navigate this abundance of information and provide accurate guidance on essential oil safety.
The good news is that when used responsibly, aromatherapy can complement traditional medicine. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend consulting your child's primary care physician before using essential oils to ensure they won't interact with any medications or treatments your child may be receiving. In this blog, you will find everything you need to know about ensuring the safety of your children when using essential oils.

Considering our diffusers' invaluable role in supporting our holistic well-being, it's only fair that we show them some tender love and care in return. After all, we want to ensure that our diffusers continue to operate smoothly and maximize their lifespan.
