Application Suggestions (See Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Topical: Dilute with a carrier oil, unscented lotion or unscented cream and apply on area of concern or as desired. Consider using a roll-on applicator for ease of application of prediluted oil. Maximum dermal use level for Briar Rose should be 25%. Skin test for sensitivity.
SPRAY: We also offer Briar Rose as a moisturizing spray. To make your own spray, simply decide on the appropriate dilution ratio you prefer, add the number of drops to the spray bottle, and then fill with the carrier oil of your choice. For example, for 3% Briar Rose in a 1oz bottle, put 30 drops Briar Rose blend in the bottle then fill with carrier oil. We offer printed cap labels if you'd like to label the cap.
Inhalation: Diffuse or use a personal Nasal Inhaler
1. Briar Rose has a lovely fragrance. I read the label that it was great for skin conditions, and I had a skin tag on my neck that had become inflamed because of the seat belt in my car. I dabbed a little on it a couple times that day and the pain left. The next day I dabbed a little more on a couple of times, and it was much smaller. By the fourth day it was completely gone! Thank you! - Sue
2. The Briar Rose is heavenly. The smell is so intoxicating! - Mario
3. Briar Rose smells just like rose, but at a fraction of the cost! We love this one. It can easily be worn as perfume and it really relaxes anyone who smells it. I find that people like to hang out by me to enjoy it. Not only is it nice smelling, but it is great for anyone who is grieving a loss of any sort. - Sandy
Ylang Ylang Dermal Caution: Potential skin sensitization issues. Use sparingly if you have low blood pressure.
Clove Stem Drug interaction Caution (oral): anticoagulant medication, major surgery, peptic ulcer, hemophilia and other bleeding disorders (Tisserand p. 255). Tisserand notes that "since eugenol significantly inhibits human MAO-A (Tao et al 2005), oral doses of eugenol-rich essential oils may interact with pethidine, indirect sympathomimetics, MAOIs or SSRIs."
Dermal Caution: Hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin, children under 2 years of age. Repeated use can result in contact sensitization. Maximum dermal use level for Briar Rose should be 25%. Skin test for sensitivity.
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat— like the membranes of your eyes and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eyes or skin. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil.” We are not aware of a case where essential oil in the eyes caused permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
