Can Essential Oils Be Too Much of a Good Thing?

Can essential oils ever be too much of a good thing? Absolutely.

Passing along pertinent words of wisdom from Herbalist, Rosalee de la Foret...
"Herbs are generally safe but if used too aggressively for a prolonged period of time they could possibly imbalance someone energetically (e.g. becoming too drying or too cooling). Think of watermelon. It's a healthy safe food, but if you ate a lot of it every day the diuretic properties would be too drying and as the seasons change this cooling food would no longer be appropriate."

Keep this in mind as we move into Fall and Winter when we put our hot oils to work such as, Oregano, Cinnamon Bark, Clove, Rosemary and Ginger. A small daily dose of protective oils may be more protective in the long run than heavy use when we fall ill (heaven forbid).

And this my friends is where CW Essential Oils Salves shine - powerful, potent essential oils and blends that are tempered with nourishing fats that protect against skin sensitivities, moisturize, are spill proof, family friendly and ready for topical use.
