Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Always dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. Always test a small amount for skin sensitivity before regular use. See additional precautions below.
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
Use a glass or ceramic tea pot, french press or electric kettle with loose leaf infuser for optimal flavor.
Add boiling hot water or 212°F to your herbal tea and let steep 5-10 minutes. You can steep for up to 15 minutes for stronger potency.
To make a long infusion, let your tea pot or french press fall to room temperature after steeping and place in the fridge with the herbs still in the pot and let steep overnight or until desired temperature.
