🔥What is a Hot Essential Oil?🔥
A few essential oils may feel “hot” to your skin, or spicy hot if taken straight internally, or, especially if it gets into your eye.
These include Cassia oil, Cinnamon oil, Black Pepper oil, Thyme, & Oregano oil.
If you experience a “hot” sensation when using an oil — flush the area thoroughly with a carrier oil — I recommend fractionated coconut oil or in a pinch, pure olive will do the trick— this includes your eye. Do not flush with water, this will push the oil deeper and cause a greater depth of “hot” sensation to the area. Flush only with a carrier oil as the fat of the oil will draw the essential oil to it.
