Bug season is approaching, so sharing my essential oils recipes: Remember that essential oils are very strong and should never be used full strength on the skin. In addition, use essential oils sparingly, on children, and understand that children skin is far more sensitive than adults. Not all essential oils an be applied to small children or pets. Ex… never use eucalyptus, rosemary, or clove oils on small children or pets/its known cause of respiratory failure. So very very important to understand the strength of essential oils on all age creatures and age groups.
