Precautions to take to enjoy the benefits of organic essential oils:

There is one essential thing to know; an organic essential oil is a liquid aromatic plant extract, concentrated and complex, obtained by distillation by steam distillation of aromatic plants or organ of this plant (flower, leaf, wood, root, bark, fruit, etc.). It is the distilled essence of the aromatic plant. As a result, they concentrate active molecules of which it would be interesting to know certain biochemical families to be used with caution:

  • Organic essential oils rich in phenols (phenic acids), aldehydes and terpenes such as lemon beds, thyme and thymol, ylang-ylang, etc. are considered potentially dangerous oils because they are dermocaustic, allergenic and irritating to the mucous membranes and to the skin. They are potentially dangerous since they can cause burns, irritations and even necrosis of the skin in their pure state. This is why it is essential to always dilute them to a maximum of 20% in a fatty substance (vegetable oil, vegetable butter, etc.). Namely that oral phenols are hepatotoxic.
  • Organic essential oils rich in coumarins such as parsley, angelica, celery, bergamot, bitter orange, etc. are considered potentially dangerous because they are essential oils that are generally photosensitizing to the skin, which means that they can cause an increase in the skin's sensitivity to solar radiation, especially ultraviolet, resulting in a rash. This reaction due to the sun would cause mutations in the epidermis leading to skin cancer. This is why it is essential to apply a photosensitizing essential oil about 6 hours before being exposed to the sun; prefer the evening at bedtime for example. In case of burn with an essential oil, it is not recommended to put water on it, dilute immediately with vegetable oil!
  • Organic essential oils rich in lactones and ketones such as peppermint, aspic lavender, rosemary ct verbenone, mugwort, etc. are considered potentially dangerous because they are oils which, depending on the wrong dosage, can have neurological toxicity. Some can also be abortive (risk of miscarriage), depending on the ketone level they contain.
  • Organic essential oils rich in sesquiterpenols such as cypress, sage, niaouli, carrot, etc. are considered potentially dangerous because they are oils that are qualified as estrogen-like; that is to say, they will stimulate female hormones which act on the urogenital system, the mammary gland, the skeleton, the cardiovascular system, the brain, the digestive system, the skin and the mucous membranes. Only, they are contraindicated in cases of hormone-dependent cancers, mastosis, fibrosis, prostate cancer or a history of hormone-dependent cancers.

Aromatherapy is certainly a natural medicine, but it is far from being a soft medicine as we are used to qualifying it. For the aromatherapist doctor Jean-Pierre Willem, “This is not alternative medicine. It is not possible to self-medicate ”. A single teaspoon of thuja essential oil, for example, can be enough to cause death.
