It is extremely rare that a person would be allergic to an essential oil because there are no protein molecules in a pure essential oil, according to Dr. David Stewart in The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple. It is more likely that the person is experiencing a detox response or that the essential oils or product contains additional substances that are not 100% plant based. Normally, drinking more water and cleansing the colon can eliminate annoying responses. However, if there is a rash, it may be better to apply oils on other parts of the body rather than directly over the rash.
JET LAG PREVENTION
When traveling, apply 1 drop of pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil of CEDARWOOD to the rims of your ears and the base of your skull, and then cup hands over nose, inhaling the aroma deeply several times. Apply frequently during the flight. This will rapidly oxygenate the cells of your brain, allowing you to arrive fresh and alert. I also like to use LAVENDER before or after cedarwood. It relaxes everyone! NOTE: It is far easier to PREVENT jet lag than to get over it! -Frances Fuller
