Summer Essential Oil Safety

Outdoor Essential Oil Safety
The sun is inviting and it’s often a boost to go outside and get that natural vitamin D. However, be aware that some of your family’s favorite citrus oils should be avoided topically before direct sunlight or exposure to artificial UV rays.

When ultraviolet (UV) radiation, a form of radiation which makes up approximately 10 percent of sunlight, comes in contact with particular substances it can initiate a series of chemical and biological reactions. This immune system reaction is known as photosensitization. Some essential oils contain organic compounds known as furocoumarins that make some people’s skin more sensitive to the effects of UV radiation. When photosensitive skin is exposed to UV radiation, it may cause the formation of free radicals, inflicting damage to cellular membranes, organelles, and proteins. Acutely, this may result in temporary darkening of skin pigment and irritation, much like a sunburn. More extreme exposure may cause hives or burns. Keep reading to find out which oils and blends to be aware of.

Michael and Carol Wilhelmi, Wellness Consultants, share information about essential oils. As Wellness Consultants, we also serve as a resource for people who are interested in buying essential oils once they have learned how essential oils can help maintain and support their health and the health of their family. Mike and Carol share their knowledge of essential oils with people in other ways including free classes, phone calls, texts, books, and emails. Carol is a homeschooling mom with two young children, ages 7 and 4. Carol and Michael use essential oils daily in the normal routines of the day and night with their family. Some examples of our own usage are: Essential oils are diffused in our home to support our respiratory system. Essential oils are applied topically to our bodies to help boost the immune system and a variety of other ways to support and maintain our health. Essential oils are diffused in the home in order to improve the quality of the indoor air (to eliminate odors and to disinfect). Essential oils are used to clean and disinfect our floors and bathrooms and other areas in the home naturally. Essential oils are used by our family to naturally support our respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems. If any of these ways that we use essential oils in our family sound like something you are interested in starting for yourself or your family please reach out to us. We would be glad to share our knowledge and resources with you.
