It is a safe non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing oil, yet care must be taken with it since it can have a phototoxic effect. It should therefore preferably not be applied before going out into sunlight for prolonged periods.
Orange oil may irritate sensitive skin and cause dermatitis in certain individuals. It is best to always dilute orange oil with a base or carrier oil, lotion or water before applying or spraying it to the skin and to refrain for applying it pure on the skin. Our essential oils are 100% pure.
However, we do NOT recommend the ingestion of essential oils. They are highly concentrated and have the capacity to cause serious damage if used internally without the necessary expertise required. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or having a medical condition, consult a doctor before use.
