Safety Data

Cypress Non-toxic and non-irritating. If oxidized, it may cause skin irritation or sensitization. Some sources recommend avoiding Cypress essential oil during pregnancy, but there is no research to support this statement. To be extra cautious, take care when using with asthmatics. Cypress can be either very helpful with bronchial asthma or a potential irritant.

Frankincense Non-toxic and generally non-irritating. Can be skin irritating if oxidized.

Opopanax Non-toxic and generally non-irritating, but may cause sensitization and skin irritation in some people. Caution against using it on children under 2 years, and hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin. IFRA (International Fragrance Association) used to claim that Opoponax was photo-toxic. Tisserand states that recently, IFRA has dropped the idea of Opopanax being photo-toxic.  

Juniper Berry Non-toxic, though it may cause skin irritation or sensitization if oxidized. Use in low dilution when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Some sources claim Juniper is contraindicated in pregnancy and kidney disease. These sources are likely referring to an oil extracted from a different species of Juniper, Juniperus Sabina, also called Savin. Tisserand states that the claims against Juniperus communis are not supported by research, nor the specific oil's chemistry.

Rosemary  Non-toxic and non-irritating. If oxidized, may cause skin irritation or sensitization.  Epilepsy— Tisserand and Young's Essential Oils Safety suggests avoiding rosemary ct camphor at levels higher than 16% topically. Blood pressure— there is no evidence that Rosemary poses risk to people with hypertension when used topically or via inhalation.  Pregnancy— according to Tisserand and Young, the camphor content is not high enough to be contraindicated during pregnancy. As an extra safe precaution, however, you may choose to avoid Rosemary ct. camphor during pregnancy. Children— do not apply any rosemary chemo-type to or near the face of infants or children under 5 years old. Use with caution for children between 5-10 years old.   

Lavender Non-toxic, non-irritating.

Lemon  Photo-toxic (when used in a blend at more than 12 drops per 1 ounce/30 ml). Otherwise non-toxic, though it may cause skin irritation. Use in low dilution (1-2%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Older, oxidized oils increase the potential for skin irritation. It's best to buy citrus oils from organically grown fruit, as citrus trees are heavily sprayed. The citrus oils are cold-pressed, and the pesticides come through the process and are found in the oils.  

Siberian Fir  Non-toxic, but may cause sensitization if the oil is older and oxidized, resulting in contact dermatitis and eczema.  

Cedar wood  Non-toxic. Many sources tell us to avoid Cedar wood oil during pregnancy. There is no research to support this claim with Cedrus atlantica, Cedrus deodara or Juniperus virginiana. The existing uncertainty may be due in part to the many different types of cedar wood trees. Reference Tisserand, R. and Young, R. (2014) Essential Oil Safety 2nd Edition.
