Did you know?
Many citrus oils contain the constituent bergapten: a compound known for having anti-inflammatory properties, but also potential phototoxic reaction when applied to the skin. Unless a citrus essential oil is specifically labeled non-phototoxic (bergapten free), it’s best to err on the side of caution.
We recommend a 5% (45 drops in 1oz carrier) or less dilution rate for skin preparations. If you are going to use more than this, simply apply in the evening when you will be out of direct sunlight for at least 12 hours.
