Essential oils are powerful and highly concentrated. They can be harmful if not used carefully so it is important to use them safely. Do not take any oils internally and do not apply to the skin undiluted. Do not use any oils during pregnancy or if you have any medical issues without taking medical advice or under the guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils on children.
Bergamot contains bergapten which is highly phototoxic - if skin is exposed to bergamot oil and then to UV radiation from the sun (or tanning bed) a potentially serious skin condition called photodermatitis may occur which can cause redness, pain, swelling, blistering and rash.
