  • Is rosemary safe to use in a bath? I thought that it was a warming oil and shouldn’t be used in a bath? And is it even safe to use a carrier oil? Shouldn’t it be something like castile soap?

    “”(Have a backache? Combine 3-4 drops Lavender and 2-3 drops Rosemary with 1/2 c Epsom salt and 1 tablespoon of your favorite carrier oil. Stir to combine, then add to warm bath! Relaxation is just a few minutes away)””

    1. Hi Gwen, rosemary is not a hot oil and it can be used in the bath. You can use carriers to dilute the oil but it will make the tub slippery. Castile soap would definitely help prevent a slippery tub but it doesn’t make it wrong to choose to use a carrier oil if desired.

    1. Mary, thank you for that catch! The recipe has been updated to include carrier oil. Some of our older blogs contain information that was relevant at the time it was published, but should now be updated. We have been going through these older blogs to correct these issues, and appreciate your careful eye on this one! 🙂

  • Is Rosemary safe to diffuse around children (8 and 10 years old)? I know not to use it topically on them, but wasn’t sure about diffusing.

    1. Hi Stacie,

      We do not recommend using any non-KidSafe oils on/around children under the age of 10. This includes topical application as well as diffusion. I hope this helps!

  • Are the profiles available somewhere for all of Plant Therapy’s oils? I would love to print them out and put them in a binder for my personal use.
