Hello, and welcome to Using Essential Oils Safely. My name is Lea Jacobson, a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and Scholar's Program graduate of Aromahead Institute. My goal and the purpose of this website is to help educate you on the proper use of various essential oils so you and your families can stay safe no matter which brand you use.
Seeing a need for such resources in the industry, I have put my education and experience to use and created safety labels to wrap around any brand essential oil bottle, the UEOS app so you can access the profiles of the 60 most popular essential oils from any of your devices, and these free classes and this certification course to help teach you about essential oils – including original, reliable family-safe blend recipes.
You can read more about me here: about Lea Jacobson.

Essential oils are very concentrated substances. One drop can be powerful enough to relieve an itchy bug bite, soothe a burn, or stop a cold in its tracks. It is natural to assume that because essential oils originate from plant sources they are without risk, but this is not always the case.
Essential oils have the potential to cause minor reactions, such as skin irritation, or more serious consequences like respiratory distress and liver failure, when not used appropriately.
Learn how to use them safely with my app, labels, or free classes!
Whether you need first aid remedies, therapeutic personal care products, or chemical-free cleaning solutions, essential oils are a wonderful choice. I am glad essential oils are easily accessible to anyone who wishes to purchase them – I only wish they each came with educational material so consumers could learn about the oil and how it is best used. UPDATE: I created this app so you can empower yourself with education, making this wish a reality! There is no regulated standard, and because of this, it is up to us as consumers to educate ourselves on the proper use of each essential oil before we use them. I hope this website can help you on your journey as you begin using essential oils safely.
