It has apparently become a 'thing' to ingest essential oils and/or apply them neat to skin. People are getting hurt because of this dangerous trend and there has even been a rise in children being admitted to poison centers.
I am horrified to see some essential oil purveyors instructing their customers how to 'safely' use essential oils.
One advises to 'dilute 1 drop essential oil with 3 drops of carrier oil for topical use'.
Another recommends applying neat to different areas of the body and have dubbed this 'raindrop technique'.
