Whenever using essential oils conduct an allergy test prior to use and never apply directly to your skin or directly stick your nose close to the bottle (dropper, spoon, cover, etc.) Often essential oils are strong enough to burn the thin membranes inside your nose.
Before using any alternative treatments or therapy you should always consult your physician first. If you have medical conditions such as Epilepsy or if you are pregnant you should always consult your physician prior to use.
