Why do we only use particular selections? and how they are used?

At Clean Burn Candle we use essential oils that are basic and not complex because it is safer and easier to manage with less combinations. We want them to be relaxing or uplifting but most of all easy to use and not hard to understand. Below are images explaining what we use and there uses too.

Essential oils are so confusing , today I spent the day researching again the 15 Essential Oils I use in my candles and my blends

My conclusion is the same. All essential oils are to be used

  • in a well ventilated room
  • always dilute with water or use a carrier oil
  • Use essential oils in moderation
  • do not ingest
  • consult a doctor for more information
  • keep out of reach from children and pets so they don’t drink the water or eat any candles.
  • all though natural , in nature some things are toxic to pets and humans

When using any new essential oil test a scent when introducing it to the room with pets present and watch for reactions like drooling .When used on or around pets, the following Essential Oils are often reputed to cause skin irritation, breathing difficulties, uncomfortable cooling effects, changes in alertness, weakness or fatigue, stumbling, vomiting, and paralysis, among various other potential effects.
