**Many essential oils are recommended by others for use on children as young as 3 months. These may be safe; but, I do not recommend the topical use of essential oils under the age of 6 years, and only then with great caution and at 1/4-1/2 the strength of that used by adults. Exercise similar caution when diffusing oils near young children and pets.

**Please do all necessary research in advance and proceed with caution. Even though I am required to market the use of essential oils only for their aromas, they do have "drug" properties because they are derived from herbs, flowers, etc. and it would be irresponsible and dangerous for me to pretend otherwise. Thus, the same regulation requires that I advise you of risks, to the best of my ability. Before pharmaceuticals came into being, humans used herbs, oils, and various other foods. Many still do. In all things, please research carefully and talk to your healthcare provider. If you're on any prescription or over-the-counter drugs, exercise extreme caution with essential oils.

**All properties to do with bacteria, viruses, fungi, anti-inflammatory properties, etc. are understood to be possible in a laboratory setting. I can make no claims about their effectiveness as such in my products. If you are on antibiotics, probiotics, or anti-inflammatory drugs or diet, please exercise caution in the use of these essential oils.

**You are welcome to custom order according to your understanding regarding reported therapeutic properties. However, while I believe in purchasing the highest quality oils possible, I accept no liability for their effectiveness.
