Health Canada has released a report that says essential oils are the “top choice” for disinfectants and is recommending that Canadians use one of three types of disinfectants to treat their body.
The agency said essential oils and botanical extracts were the most popular disinfectants in Canada, with 90 per cent of the country’s people using either of the disinfectants.
However, the report said essential oil products were the only disinfectants that were more commonly used than natural, non-essential oils, which were used in more than 90 per center of Canada.
The essential oil brand is one of the most well-known and widely used essential oils in Canada.
It’s widely used in traditional Chinese medicine, as well as as in the traditional Chinese and African cultures.
The report also recommends that people who do not use essential oils, like seniors, people with chronic illnesses or those who do a lot of work with the environment, use a mineral oil.
The Essential Oil Association of Canada (EAAC) said the findings highlight the importance of keeping essential oils out of the hands of children and the elderly.
“The results of this study highlight the need for parents to educate their children on the dangers of essential oils,” said EAAC president and CEO Paul Mignot.
“These products can cause severe irritation and, when used improperly, can cause allergic reactions.”
Mignot said the report also highlighted the importance to be aware of any chemicals found in essential oils.
“If your children are using essential oils it is important to be able to detect the presence of chemicals, and that is not always easy,” he said.
“It is also important to note that essential oils do not contain all the essential oils used in cooking.
We recommend that they should only use essential oil extracts or extracts from certified organic sources.”
