However, just like regular perfume, most of these products will contain synthetic scents and can give people headaches.

Please note- It is important to take great care when using essential oils and always go with your instinct. For some the scent may be too strong so we always recommend to start with smaller dosages and work your way up. Pregnant women, elderly, young children and animals are more sensitive to scent and therefore smaller amounts should be used.
