Be safe in the sun!
When using essential oils, there are a few necessary precautions. Some essential oils, including many citrus oils, are photo toxic or photosensitive which means that they are sensitive to sunlight. When you use them, you will also be sensitive to sunlight. If you use these oils before being exposed to sunlight, you can easily burn or develop a rash. It is recommended that you simply stay out of the sun after using these oils. The general recommendation is to avoid sunlight for at least 12 hours. Also avoid UV light and tanning beds.
Just to be safe, avoid the sun after using these doTERRA oils:
- Citrus Bliss
- Elevation blend
- Ginger (mild)
- Melissa (mild)
- Wild orange
“I’m in the sun all the time! I want to use photosensitive oil in the summer. How?”
- Diffuse. Using your diffuser is a much safer alternative to experiencing pure essential oils during sunny days. Unless you were to sit with your face directly over the diffuser (not recommended), by diffusing essential oils aromatically, the particles of the oils are not concentrated enough in one spot to cause the same level of photosensitivity as when you apply those oils topically to the skin.
- Apply topically on feet. Be advised! Your feet get sun exposure too. Only apply if you are very careful to keep the oil on the very bottoms of the feet. If you are wearing socks, then you are good to go!
