Words of Caution:

♦Thieves oil falls under the category of hot oils. So you should always mix it with a carrier oil when you apply it topically.

♦Besides these words of caution, I’d like you to know that eucalyptus oil and rosemary oil should not be used on children under the age of 10

♦Never take any essential oil internally unless it is of Food Grade quality and has been advised by your healthcare practitioner.
