Do not use with small children, elders, epileptics, pregnant and/or nursing women.

Thujone (a neurotoxic ketone) shows evidence of a cumulative effect that can result in convulsions, therefore we recommend short-term (less than 7 days) or occasional topical use only in very low dilution (no more than 0.25 percent). Do not use with small children, elders, epileptics, pregnant and/or nursing women. Dilute before using. A patch test should be performed before use for those with sensitive skin.
