As long as you’re not allergic to them, essential oils are generally safe. You just need to use them correctly and heed the manufacturer’s warnings. Vegan essential oils may be all-natural and offer a variety of health benefits, there is no getting around the fact that these are highly-concentrated substances. Essential oils are often meant to be diluted inside a diffuser or before being applied to the skin. If you happen to ingest or spill the concentrated oil on your skin, you risk a variety of adverse effects. From skin irritation to headaches and nausea.
These risk factors are especially relevant when dealing with pets or children. Their smaller body mass makes them more susceptible to experiencing adverse effects from contact with concentrated oils, which is why B Calm and other responsible brands make sure to package their essential oils in child-proof bottles
