Essential oils are all natural, but they can pose risks if not used appropriately.
When I first started working with essential oils, I was in love with the different scents and just wanted to make beautiful smelling lotions and butters. Then I started to look a little deeper into what their real chemical makeups were doing. Did you know that some essential oils can make you more prone to sunburn? Others can help with healing cuts and skin sensitivities. There are some essential oils that should not be used with certain medications (like blood thinners -- pretty important medicine!) The more I studied, the more I came to have a real respect for the power of these little blessings from nature!
