advices

Skin application is recommended. However, pure essential oil of gaultheria may sometimes irritate the skin, especially in sensitive persons, and should be used preferably diluted in carrier oil (maximum 25% of essential oil concentration). It may be used pure on a small surface, but one should be prepared for its revulsive, vaso-dilator and heating effect which may be irritant. Test on skin prior to use.

Do not use in: pregnant or breast-feeding women, children under the age of six years, persons allergic to aspirin or to salicylates in general, in case of anticoagulant treatment.
