Cautions & Contraindications
It can be seen elsewhere on the internet that Tisserand & Young recommend a dermal maximum of 0.3% for Elemi Essential Oil as it may contain methyl eugenol. However, in the latest edition of the Essential Oil Safety Manual they state “No Limit”.
Whilst Tisserand & Young don’t recommend any dermal limits for Elemi Essential Oil, IFRA and the EU recommend even lower amounts than 0.3%… more than halving this amount, in fact.
The methyl eugenol content will vary from one batch of Elemi Essential Oil to another. So, this advice for such low dilutions of Elemi Essential Oil is effectively to restrict the dermal dilution to contend with the highest levels of methyl eugenol for this aromatherapy oil.
However, the reasoning of Tisserand & Young is that the constituents needed to counter any ill-effects from the methyl eugenol are more than adequately present in this very beneficial oil.
Elemi Essential Oil should not be used if it is oxidised, (exposed to excessive sunlight and air).
