We love essential oils, you love essential oils, everybody else should love essential oils (I mean, right?)….but sometimes it can be easy to get carried away. With all of the holiday gatherings coming up, we here at Plant Therapy want to send out a friendly safe-usage reminder: Don’t diffuse in public!
When you diffuse in public, unpredictable reactions may occur. Why is this? Well, everyone has to breathe. And just because you respond well to an essential oil diffused into the air, doesn’t mean everyone else will, too. Babies, pregnant or nursing women, pets, and individuals on certain medications or who have medical conditions can be at risk of adverse reactions to what’s being publicly diffused.
Some people have specific allergies to certain chemical components in essential oils as well! Inhaling specific oils can make them feel nauseous, light-headed, irritable – honestly, the list of symptoms could go on and on.
You just don’t know how everyone will respond, so why take the risk? It’s always best to err on the side of caution so that you don’t unintentionally harm your party guests.
But don’t worry!
We know you still want to use your oils, especially with the overwhelming demands this season can bring. Personal aromatherapy inhalers are ideal for public situations, especially since you can use whatever oil or blend is personally best for you. Aromatherapy diffuser lockets are also a nice option to enjoy your favorite oils whenever you want!
Thank you to all of our amazing customers making safe and conscientious essential oil choices!
