Palo Santo should not be used for prolonged periods of time as it has potential to tax the liver. When blending, a good guideline is 5-10 drops per 1 ounce of carrier maximum. Skin sensitization is possible if using old and/or oxidized oils. Essential Oils are typically used via inhalation and/or topical application while properly diluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified aromatherapy practitioner to address a specific health need, for a specified period of time. Keep away from children and pets.
