Do not apply undiluted essential oils to your skin. Use a carrier oil or solvent to dilute first.
Do not drip undiluted essential oils into eyes as this will cause a chemical burn and may result in temporary blindness. Diluted essential oils may be used close to the eyes. More here.
Undiluted essential oils should not be dripped into the ears, but diluted essential oils may be placed on a cotton wad for partial insertion.
Keep essential oils in a place where young children cannot reach them, and never let them handle essential oils bottles.
