We see this question asked all the time: “can someone be allergic to essential oils?”
There is so much misinformation all over the internet online that we thought you would appreciate hearing the truth straight from the mouth of our favorite pharmacist, Lindsey Elmore.
I strongly encourage you to listen through the video. I know there is a lot of medical terminology, but Lindsey is fantastic at breaking it down in a simple to understand manner.
Events that can increase sensitivity:
- Long-term stress
- Acute stress
- Women experience skin sensitivities more than men
- Poor diets
- Phototoxicity (citrus and cumin oils being applied topically, then exposing the same location to sunlight or UV light)
Sometimes reactions may take 2-3 days to show. For example… if you end up applying oils on your skin that are potentially phototoxic, the sunburn-like rash could show up right away or a few days later.
