KEEPING SAFE WITH MELELEUCA
Meleleuca is a powerful oil and not safe to be ingested. For that reason, please keep out of reach of children. Before using the oil, use a little in a small area of your skin as a patch test, and stop use if you get a reaction within 24 hours. For children or those with sensitive skin it is best to dilute the oil before use. doTERRA Meleleuca Touch is ideal for this as it has already been diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Avoid using Meleleuca on skin if you are going directly into the sun, as it can cause a sensitivity, and always keep it away from the eyes, inner ear and other sensitive areas.
