What if I experience skin discomfort or irritation when I apply an oil?

If discomfort or irritation occurs, stop using the essential oil and apply V-6 or another carrier oil to the affected area. Oils are attracted to fat; if you try to wash them off with water, the oil will only drive deeper into the skin. If a rash occurs, this may be a sign of detoxification. Drink adequate water to encourage the release and removal of toxins in your body. Before using the essential oil again, perform a patch test (see above under “What is a “hot oil?”) and dilute with a carrier oil as needed.
