Disclaimer

At My Essential Alchemy, we believe we provide gentle, non-irritating and toxin free products for your skin and home. Our products are 100% natural, and in most cases food based, so edible and safe....however unappetising!

The content on our website is provided for general informational purposes only and should not be considered medical advice. Product information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Comments and feedback about product effectiveness are based on customer, staff and family opinions and should not be substituted for medical care. Whilst we do not make medical claims for our products, the raw ingredients, herbs and essential oils included have many benefits which are well documented in herbal and aroma therapeutic literature. Please ask your naturopath/therapist if you have any concerns.

Allergies

Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil. 

Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.

Patch testing

Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.

It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.

We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.

Variation in natural products

You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
