Potential Side Effects of Essential Oils

The side effects depend on what oil you’re using & how you’re using it.

  • Citrus-based oils (orange, lemon, & bergamot) are photo-sensitizers. You can get a sunburn easily.
  • Tea tree & eucalyptus are toxic to the nervous system and liver. Use care around animals, infants, the elderly, and pregnant women.
  • Mugwort, pennyroyal, & wormwood can cause contractions, so don’t use during pregnancy.
  • Be cautious if you have respiratory conditions or strong reactions or allergies to fragrances.
  • They do release off-gases. So limit your use.

Safety testing shows very few risks when used as directed.
