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.
Never use pure on the skin, as carvacrol is irritating (dermocaustic). In this case, dilute in vegetable oil or oily macerate of St. John's wort or calendula.
Internally, medium or long-term use requires protection of the liver, for example by taking rosemary verbenone essential oil, lemon oil or rosemary verbenone hydrolate at the same time.
Avoid contact with the eyes.
Keep out of reach of children.
