All Spice Oil Side Effects
While it’s a powerful substance, we do recommend that you look into the ingredient list within. It’s got a rich blend of things like pepper, cloves, and cinnamon within it; hence the name. Make sure you read the ingredients list of any All Spice Oil that you intend to take, as this would help you to understand how strong it is.
Always dilute your oil with a carrier oil, too, as it can be quite intense on the skin if put on at full strength. As ever, speak to a medical professional and see if they think that using All Spice Oil would benefit you.
