Therapeutic Properties

Applications

Topical:

Apply on desired location to keep mosquitos from biting.

Safe for use during pregnancy or lactation.

Ok for children 2+. We are often asked if this is suitable for children younger than two years.  We would not suggest this with children younger than 8 months. For little ones older than that, a skin patch test is recommended.  An ideal application for this young age would be to spray it in your hands and rub them together. Then gently pat your little one's skin and clothes. That will give her the fragrance that deters mosquitoes, but will not overdo it by applying too much directly on the skin.

Do not diffuse this blend.  It could clog your diffuser.

Cautions

All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion. It is not advised to take essential oils internally unless under the guidance of a licensed physician who is also certified in aromatherapy. 

Ylang Ylang:

Repeated use can possibly result in contact sensitization.  Take care when using Ylang Ylang, for too high a concentration or using it for too long a time, can give rise to nausea and/or headache (2. p. 315).  Ylang-ylang essential oil has a deeply relaxing effect and should not be used prior to driving, operating machinery, or doing other tasks that require concentration (3. p. 421).  Use with caution on children under the age of two due to possible skin irritation.

Catnip:

Skin sensitization (low risk); may be psychotropic. (1. p. 237)
