Essential Therapeutics began in 1988 as the first professional-only range of essential oils and related products, specifically for use by trained complementary therapists and health care professionals. In 1994, they were amongst the first group of Aromatherapy companies to apply for registration with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Only 100% TGEO guaranteed essential oils are used in their essential oils or blends – no common extending agents such as dipropylene glycol or isopropyl myristate are ever used.

Topical application: For adults with sensitive skin use a 2.5% dilution or less. For many applications, a 0.5% to 1% concentration can be sufficient. People with a history or allergies, especially eczema, are more likely to possibly react to some essential oils.
Bath: 5 – 10 drops to a full bath. Mix drops of essential oil with Essential Solubilizer and then add this mixture under running bath water.
Can I use an essential oil neat on my skin?
The first general rule is not to use essential oils indiscriminately on the skin. The majority of essential oils are not suitable for neat application. People with a history of sensitivity should always dilute with a carrier oil or base lotion such as Essential Base Lotion, Organic Massage Oil or Organic Jojoba Oil. Do not apply essential oils inside ears, anywhere near the eyes, or other sensitive areas of the body.
Should any irritation occur from using essential oils, remove the oil from the skin by applying any vegetable oil and repeat a few times. This will quickly relieve irritation reactions. Do not wash with water as this will make the essential oil penetrate further into the skin and may cause a greater reaction. The essential oils are drawn into the carrier oil and become diluted.
Photo-sensitisation: The following oils may cause the skin to burn if exposed to strong ultra-violet light from sunlight or a sun bed – Angelica Root, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lemon Verbena, Lime, Bitter Orange, Sweet Orange & Tagetes.
Are there any instances when essential oils would be dangerous to use?
Some essential oils have properties that are considered dangerous for certain conditions. Pregnancy, asthma, epilepsy, high blood pressure or infants and children.
