If you are still impressed by this force of nature, it takes a more discreet form through its hydrolat. Precautions for use Food supplement. Keep out of reach of young children. Not a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended dose (1 drop twice a day, maximum 80mg). Not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Do not give to children under 12 years of age. Do not use for long periods without specialist advice. Seek advice from a health professional. Store away from heat and light.
