‘Hot’ oils and Photo-sensitive oils

What are “hot oils”?

“Hot oils” are oils that can cause a hot or warming sensation when applied to the skin.
In your Premium Starter Kit, these are the hot oils
(use V-6 carrier oil when using for babies and young toddlers):
Young Living recommends using a patch test procedure prior to first use. To perform a patch test, apply 1–2 drops of essential oil to a patch of skin such as the forearm.
Observe that area of skin over the course of 1–2 hours for any noticeable reaction; however, reactions occur usually within 5–10 minutes. If you experience a hot or burning sensation or develop a rash, add V-6 carrier oil to the affected area as often as needed. If you do not have V-6, you can grab your kitchen’s cooking oil or wash the affected area with milk.
Cinnamon, Clove, Lemongrass, Oregano, Thyme, Lemon Mrytle, Exodus II™, Peppermint, Wintergreen, PanAway, ImmuPower and Thieves®.

What are Photo-sensitive oils?

Citrus oils or blends containing a large portion of citrus oils are photosensitive. If you have sensitive skin or get burnt easily, avoid applying these oils to exposed skin before you head out into the sunshine.
