Emergency Situations
By James F. Balch, M.D. and Mark Stengler, N.D.
 
  • Irritated Skin: To relieve skin irritated from ­ essential oils, wash with soap and water or a mild detergent. If the rash does not clear up in
    a few days, seek medical attention. If there is blistering, seek medical attention right away.
  • Essential oil in the eyes: Place a small drop of plain carrier oil (e.g., olive oil) into the affected eye(s). The carrier oil helps to absorb the essential oil. Rinse with water and pat with a cloth. Seek medical attention immediately to have the eyes examined.
  • Sick and nauseated: If you become sick, nauseated, confused, or get a headache from the essential oils, then breathe some fresh air. Your symptoms should improve immediately and over the next couple of hours. If there is no improvement, seek medical attention.
  • If a child swallows an essential oil: Call 911 immediately. Do not try to induce vomiting.
