Please remember, that anyone can have a different reaction to different natural products. Just becasue they are natural doesn't not mean you may not be allergic. The best way to check is to test on a small dot on the inside of your forearm, cover with a bandaid, check after 10 min, 1 hour, 1day, and then for a few days, before using on a daily basis. If you notice any signs of redness, swelling, itching, or any unusual side effects, discontinue use immediately and call your doctor or hospital. And as always never injest anything unless you have done your own reasearch and feel totally safe with the product. All recipes are given as ideas and are no way intended as a subsitute for a professional Doctor's care.
