Essential Oils

The Candle Company essential oils are sourced around the world and offer you the highest quality. Because of their concentrated nature, we strongly recommend that they should be diluted in oil or water before use.

Precautions

  • Children under two years of age should not be treated with essential oils.
  • Essential oils should not be taken internally without professional advice.
  • We do not recommend the use of essential oils during pregnancy or if breast-feeding.
  • Most essential oils should be diluted when using on the skin, normally in a carrier oil such as Grapeseed or Sweet Almond oil.
