Oils are for prayer and ritual use in anointing candles, mojos, and other objects; they are not cosmetics or perfumes and are not sold or labeled as such. We accept no responsibility for allergies or adverse reactions if customers choose to wear them anyway.
You are advised to exercise caution, do an allergy patch test, and research essential oils and proper dilution levels with carrier oils if you want to wear any spiritual oil, manufactured by anyone, *especially* if it is not properly labeled and sold as a cosmetic. Any U.S. seller advertising their oils as products for skin application who doesn't label them and list the ingredients according to FDA regulations can be shut down by the FDA for violation of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. Among other things, this means every ingredient, including individual herbs, essential oils, and colorants, must be listed on the label, and you know hardly any maker of condition oils does that!
My bath crystals ARE formulated specifically with skin-safe levels of essential oils and ARE labeled in accordance with FDA rules for cosmetics. While you can also use them as floor washes, I formulated them for bodily use and make them in accordance with IFRA safety profiles and FDA guidelines. I suggest you *only* buy bath crystals from creators who do the same. That means listing every single ingredient individually, including botanicals and colorants.
Why? Y'all, if you could see even a fraction of the comments I've seen on forums and blogs and sites frequented by DIYers and wannabe soapmakers and new formula creators, you would be *utterly horrified.* The ignorance is widespread, the official oversight is entirely inadequate, and statistically speaking, your chances are excellent of buying body products from someone who has no idea how to create a safe product and label it accurately.
And if they aren't familiar with the labeling laws, can you count on them to be familiar with the intricacies of various essential oils, botanicals, and preservatives? A *lot* of people confuse antioxidants and preservatives - this should concern you greatly, unless you don't mind getting a nice helping of gram positive bacteria along with your Van Van bubble bath. (No, vitamin E is NOT a preservative.)
Can you be sure their blends don't contain any dangerous herbs or essential oils? Any that cause photosensitivity? Any that should be avoided during pregnancy? While accurate and legally compliant product labeling is no guarantee of anything, it's a good first thing to look for when assessing whether the creator of a product has sufficient knowledge of laws and safety profiles and industry standards and herbal profiles to warrant your trust.
(Just FYI, real soap - the kind made with lye and oils/fats, not the kind that is actually a detergent that they're calling soap - is exempt from cosmetic labeling laws, so don't judge artisan soapmakers by the labeling standard. But lotions, scrubs, bath salts, ritual oils if advertised as being wearable, all that stuff needs FDA-compliant labeling.)
All-natural does not equal hypoallergenic, and many essential oils are dangerous if ingested and/or applied to the skin. Even oils that are generally considered skin safe can cause reactions in sensitive individuals, and new allergies can develop in a person's lifetime unexpectedly. Thus, even if you do your research, you should still do a skin test with any new container of any kind of formula, sold by anyone, if you intend to wear it.
