Allergic to Lavender

Post by crazywmfriz » Wed Sep 07, 2011 5:51 am

I am reluctantly coming to the conclusion that I must be allergic to Lavender. I have a itchy rash everywhere that I have used Lavender. Have you ever heard of this?

Hi Shazellediki,

I was just about to answer your email as well. It's been shown in research that some folks can be allergic, and it's TYPICALLY from lavender that's been sitting on store shelves for quite some time -- though that needn't be the case for sure -- one could simply have a contact dermatitis with the oil.

Are you creating your own blends? What sort of concentration are you using?

Cheers!
Eric
