High-Blood-Pressure(Avoid-if-you-have-HBP)  --   The idea of essential oils raising blood pressure is controversial... After reading several aromatherapy books by various authors and literature by Jean Valnet and Robert Tisserand I have decided not to list any oils here. But what about Sage, Hyssop, Rosemary, and Thyme??   To better understand where I am coming from please read Essential Oils and Hypertension by Robert Tisserand.

 Basically none... until proven otherwise.

Not-For-Internal-Consumption  --   Don't eat or drink essential oils! Yes, some authors suggest it. I don't! Benefits from eating or drinking essential oils are often slim to non-existent as the stomach acids will usually destroy many of their properties before the oils make it down to the intestines were they will be absorbed into the blood.   Yes, some essential oils can be ingested and some may even be very helpful when ingested in certain circumstances. But, this can be a very tricky business and a highly skilled aromatherapy practitioner will need to be consulted to get the facts straight - and even then, I would suggest getting a second opinion.   Some of the consequences for injesting the wrong oil (or even the right oil in the wrong amount) can have serious consequences - like kidney damage! For this reason I am not going to even attempt to cover this topic. As far as I'm concerned and as far as this site is concerned - Don't drink the oil!     References: b-73

Phototoxic(high)  --   According to David Stewart (The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple: God's Love Manifest in Molecules  pgs 382-383) phototoxicity only occurs when the oil is applied to the skin. Sniffing an oil will not create any problems as far as exposure to UV-rays is concerned. Think of it like rubbing on a UV-ray attracting magnifying glass oil onto your skin. As long as the UV-rays never see the oil soaked skin (the skin is covered with clothing) then there is no problem - don't forget your hands! If UV-rays do see the oil soaked skin, the rays will be magnified thus burning the skin - in some cases severely - possibly resulting in permanent scaring. Once applied to the skin, washing will not remove the phototoxic components...   Stewart also warns that phototoxicity can exist for up to 12 hours after the oil has been applied to the skin. In addition, fairer type skin is more susceptible to phototoxicity.
