PHOTOSENSITIVITY

 

As the nice sunny weather is upon us (finally), it’s time to talk about some precautions.  Photosensitivity applies to the topical use of essential oils only, not ones that are taken internally.

When using photosensitive oils topically avoid the sun, tanning beds or any UV light for at least 12 hours.

Please be vigilant and check your warning labels well, some oils such as Bergamot can cause the skin to burn severely up to 72 hours after applied topically and align yourself with a leader who can properly guide you in safe usage of your essential oils.

Why does this happen? It’s something called furocoumarins in citrus oils applied topically, bind to the skin and when exposed to prolonged direct UV light, can cause a reaction resulting in burns.
