When applied to the skin, essential oils pass through the pores of the skin, enter the blood capillaries which guide them to the target organ and can thus act in depth throughout the body. After absorption, they are then eliminated by the emunctories (organs which ensure the elimination of toxins) such as the lungs via sputum or mucus, the skin via sebum and perspiration, the kidneys via the urine and the intestine via the stool. It is therefore essential to use quality essential oils , 100% pure and natural, of controlled origin and chemotype, not terpeneless, with the name HEBBD (which means that the Essential Oil is Botanically and Biochemically Defined), of Store them in good conditions (tightly closed bottle protected from light) and always use them diluted and at low doses. Most essential oils need to be diluted 1/5 (high concentration, reserved for medical practice), most often 1/10 or even 1/20 or 1/100 (low concentration, common for use of essential oils in cosmetology It is not recommended to mix more than 3 EO in the same preparation.

As a general rule, it is not recommended to use essential oils on pregnant or breastfeeding women, especially during the first three months of pregnancy when fetal tissue is forming, as well as in children because of enzymatic immaturity. infantile. For production animals and pets, aromatherapy should be adapted, as some species do not have certain enzymatic metabolic systems.

Certain essential oils can be toxic and dangerous without controlling their precautions for use. It is recommended to go then towards homeopathy , phytotherapy or hydrolatherapy (floral waters) for pregnant or breastfeeding women, as well as for children.

It is not recommended to take an essential oil orally systematically, despite some received ideas.

Use Essential Oils certified 100% Organic, Natural and Chemotyped

A quality essential oil should be natural, that is to say, ideally, from organic farming. In this way, you can be assured that your essential oil will not contain pesticides or GMOs ... Organic essential oils called "organic" (at least 95%) are stamped AB, Cosmebio or Ecocert.

An essential oil " 100% pure, natural and total " bears the words " HEBBD . ”( HECT essential oil and biochemically defined). It is the guarantee of a product without additions, with real traceability and strict control. On the bottle, we find, in addition to the Latin name and the botanical family of the plant, the chemotype - which defines the biochemically active molecule (s) and the majority (s) -, the expiry date. .

  • Checking "100% natural" does not mean certified organic production. It just means that the essential oils are not diluted or modified. On the other hand, the legislative framework on the term "natural" simply requires that the product contains less than 30% of synthetic molecules.
  • Check “100% pure” : means that the essential oil is neither diluted nor cut with another component or another essential oil.
  • Checking "complete" or "whole" means that the plant has been distilled long enough to recover all of its aromatic molecules.
  • Learn about the biochemical composition of essential oil, and more particularly, if it lends itself to it, its chemotype , which makes it possible to differentiate the properties of essential oils from the same plant that lives in different conditions. Thus, a plant can give different molecules, with also different properties.

How to recognize a potentially dangerous essential oil?

There is one essential thing to know; an essential oil is a liquid, concentrated and complex aromatic plant extract 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:

  • 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, irritation, and even skin necrosis 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.
  • 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 sensitivity of the skin 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 exposure 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!
  • 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.
  • 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, mammary gland, skeleton, cardiovascular system, brain, digestive system, skin and mucous membranes. However, 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, “It's 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. Better to avoid playing with your health by mixing essential oils without knowing their molecular content as well as the appropriate dosages.
