Safety

Phototoxic. May cause skin irritation. Use in low dilution (1%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Older, oxidized oils increase the potential for skin irritation. It is considered best to buy citrus oils that are from organically grown fruit as citrus trees can be heavily sprayed with pesticides.
