Excessive use of essential oils is not cosmetic and disfiguring
Essential oils are inconsistent with ordinary cosmetics and are even as toxic as drugs. Therefore, although the effect is magical, the operation must be very careful.
At present, there are too many pure essential oils on the market. Too many beauticians use impure essential oils as an excuse and use them excessively for a long time. Anyway, “just three or five drops won’t do any good.”
■ The key is the amount of aroma magic VS aroma poison in advance. Aromatic essential oil is also called “aroma magic” because it has magical effects, but it must adhere to operating rules. If you do not understand the toxicity of essential oils, they will become “aromaticpoison”.
Because essential oils are toxic, in the promotion of the effectiveness of essential oils, beauty salons should operate within their own capabilities. Those who do not understand how to operate correctly should absolutely prohibit the testing of guests.
First of all, it is best to be formulated and massaged by a professionally trained beautician.
In addition, when using aromatic essential oils, individual formulas are used. Experienced aroma therapists will mix and match some essential oils from person to person. It is irresponsible to use the same formula uniformly.
Due to physical differences, individual people will have toxic reactions, so the same formula should not be more than 6 times a course of treatment.
The use of essential oils must also be strictly controlled.
When used in facial care, the amount of unilateral essential oil must not exceed 1% of the base oil. When used in body care, it cannot exceed 3% for women, 5% for men, and 2% for children.It is also necessary to strictly control the individual’s weight, age, height, and signs.
For domestic use, no more than 8 drops of essential oil in a bathtub and no more than 3 drops in a basin of water.
If there is no standard and standardized operation and safe matching according to different ingredients and effects, it will inevitably cause damage to the skin and body during the use of essential oils.
And even according to the instructions “drop 1 to 3 drops”, a unilateral essential oil may become a “troublemaker”.
For example, rose essential oil can soften the skin and generally does not cause allergies, but in the spring, because the skin is in the susceptible period, red spots may also appear on the skin with rose essential oil.
And lemon, grapefruit, bergamot and other citrus essential oils, although having a whitening effect, are used in summer. Some of the essential oils will produce a “phototoxic reaction” after contact with the sun, and the body will be toxic by biotransformation and make the skin allergic.
For some essential oils, two different effects may occur in different amounts.
When you take a hot bath, 5 drops of lavender oil can be used as a sleeping bedtime, but if you accidentally drop more than 15 drops, it becomes a stimulant, so you don’t even want to fall asleep all night.
Geranium essential oil is used when you are irritable and has a calming and calming effect, but if you use it more, it will “fuel your fire”.
There is also peppermint essential oil. Putting peppermint essential oil in the summer bath can accelerate perspiration and cool the skin, but in winter, it can shrink the pores on the skin surface and warm up.
Generally speaking, uncommon essential oils such as elan essential oil should be used with caution. Due to the strong and weak toxicity of essential oils, the same type of vegetable oil is also important. For example, sage is more common than sage, and thyme is safer than sweet thyme.The calming and anti-inflammatory effect of orange essential oil, although the blue German orange is more effective, but improper use will also over-suppress the nervous system, but Roman orange is safer.
For sensitive skin and pruritus, grapefruit and elan essential oil should be used with caution.
■ Expert opinion Excessive use of liver damage essential oil is an essence extracted from natural plants, but natural does not mean non-toxic.
The concentration of essential oils is very high, and excessive use will cause the skin surface to fail to metabolize, form burns, and darken the skin.
In addition, essential oils can quickly penetrate into the body through the skin and enter the blood circulation.
According to foreign human experiments, venous blood was detected after the essential oil was massaged for 20 minutes, and it was found to contain essential oil.
Among the lavender unilateral essential oils, linalool acetate and linalool account for 88%. Alcohols, like alcohol, cause insulin damage caused by excessive use, resulting in decreased liver function, paralysis of the sympathetic nerves by excessive suppression, and performance as a person’s motionlessness and blood pressureAnd other symptoms.
In addition, as a unilateral essential oil, it cannot be directly applied to the skin, and must be replaced by a base oil composed of various vegetable oils after cold pressing, otherwise it will burn the skin.
In order to prevent the excessive use of essential oils, the essential oil products of the distance must be stated on the bottle packaging that the amount used should not exceed 3 to 5 drops. If the essential oil is a unilateral pure essential oil, the bottle mouth will be designed as a dripper, not wideMouth, so 1 drop is difficult to be regarded as 50 drops.
Only with safe and suitable packaging and instructions is the genuine oil.
Essential oil beauty must be in order. Essential oil beauty belongs to the life beauty part and does not belong to the central branch.
According to international consensus, aromatherapy is between preventive medicine and rehabilitation medicine. In the United States, aromatherapy is the same as acupuncture and hypnosis and is called “alternative therapy”.
Because the danger coefficient of essential oil beauty is much higher than that of ordinary cosmetics, there are many taboos, and the aroma therapist Xiang Yanli overlaps. He should “make rules” for essential oil beauty, and qualify the aroma beautician or the beauty salon that provides essential oil services.
With reference to the qualification examination of foreign aromatherapy therapists, it is the same as the doctor’s qualification. It requires annual rotation training and reapproves the professional standards of members every year.
At present, relevant departments have taken the lead in conducting vocational qualification training for aroma beauticians in China, and cooperated with aromatherapy training institutions in the United Kingdom to provide scientific guidance on massage techniques of essential oils and specific operating procedures. It is expected that aromatherapy and beauty of Shanghai residents will be guaranteed soon.
