++ SAFETY GUIDELINES ++
The essential oils in all Under Aurora products have been diluted to levels generally regarded as safe for adults. This being said, it's always a good idea to do a patch test before applying any product to your entire body. If there is any irritation, immediately wash the area with a gentle soap and water and discontinue use of the product. Never use any of the products very near to the eyes, inside the ears or any other orifice.
Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Essential oils should be used with caution during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Particularly during the first trimester many think that it is better to err on the side of caution and discontinue use of essential oils all together.
The scent The Rebel (available in both the Botanical Body Spritz and Botanical Perfume Oil) and the Nico scent of the Women We Love Organic Hand Lotion both contain Cassia, an oil that is contraindicated for pregnancy. We recommend discontinuing use of those products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Cassia's primary constituent is Cinnamaldehyde, an organic chemical that studies have found signs of possible reproductive toxicity in higher doses. The aforementioned products contain cassia that has been diluted to a rate of 0.00125%.
If you are interested in ordering product with no essential oils added, please write to Tina at firstname.lastname@example.org after placing your order.
Under Aurora products are not blended with the intention of use on children. Please store the products in a location that is out of the reach of children. You should always use caution when applying products that contain essential oils on to children. To err on the side of caution, hydrosols are a safe alternative for very young children. The Balancing Facial Toner doubles as a wonderful calming hydrosol spray.
If you are using essential oil based products on children, please follow these dilution rates:
0-3 months – 0.1 - 0.2%
3-24 months – 0.25 – 0.5%
2-6 years – 0.5 – 1.5%
If you need to know the essential oil dilution rate for any of the Under Aurora products please write to Tina at email@example.com.
