    Frequently asked questions

    Is this safe for use during pregnancy?
    We do not recommend using Melissa during pregnancy. See our full list of pregnancy safe oils in our FAQs.

    Is this safe for children?
    Not recommended for babies and small children. Essential oils are considered too strong for use on babies’ skin (0-24 months) and can be overwhelming on their developing systems. When using in a diffuser, use fewer drops then that for an adult (eg. 2-3 drops). See our ECO. Little range for appropriate, kid-friendly blends. Read more about Aromatherapy for Babies and Children and see our FAQ page for which essential oils to avoid.

    Is this safe to use around pets?
    Use this oil with caution around pets, never use topically and store bottles out of reach. If you have any concerns, please contact your vet. See our full list of pet safe oils in our FAQs.

    Can I ingest this oil?
    Essential oils should not be taken internally unless you have consulted with a health professional or Aromatherapist first.
