Always use caution when trying ingredients that are unknown to you. Persons who are allergic to nuts should ask a medical doctor before coming in contact with oils from nuts.
Remember essential oils are extremely concentrated. A large amount can cause harm- a burn or an allergic reaction.
Store oils in a cool, dark place. They have shelf-life of about two years. Do make sure that they are safely shut away from children and animals.
If you are unsure how your skin will react to an essential oil, apply one drop of the oil to the inside of your wrist or forearm. Check the spot for any redness or irritation after a few hours. If you have very delicate skin and wish to be extremely careful, you can cover the spot with a bandage and leave it for 24-hours.
