Can you overdose on essential oils?

With many products using essential oils, is it possible to actually OD from them or is it always safe?

“Most essential oils are not to be used directly to the body unless you use a carrier oil. We always use carrier oils in all of our products so you can directly apply the product to your body and should not be concerned about overdoses,” Danielle Cuccio, the CEO/Founder of Cuccio Somatology, one of the fastest growing, women-led beauty businesses with a global reach of over 120 countries, says.

But why we’re talking to her about it is not only because she’s an expert in the field but also because you can try out their Calm Hand + Body Roller Oil in your Out’n’Proud pack this month. It’s made of essential oils and helps to calm the mind whenever you need it. The perfect blend of Lavender Oil, Eucalyptus Oil and Rosemary Oil will keep you feeling calm all day long.

But how does it work?

“Aromatherapy has been known to help reduce stress, decrease anxiety, and help improve sleep for centuries,” she explains. “When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the brain’s emotional centre.” she points out.

Not bad! but how long does it last and how much can you use it?

Danielle Cuccio: “You can re-apply as needed whenever you feel tense or notice that you need a moment of calm. The beauty of this product is that it’s small, and you can keep it with you all day long, reapplying when needed. Keep next to your desk for a moment of calm in the middle of your workday, next to your bed to use before bed to help you get a restful night of sleep or in your gym bag to help you find calm after a workout.”

Sounds like a fab solution, doesn’t it?
