Can anybody recommend a site with a list of lip balm safe EOs? So far I've kept it simple - peppermint, spearmint, lemongrass. I want to know which ones are safe and also what quantities. So far I've been using the BB fragrance calculator, choosing "lotion" as my product, and using between the light and medium amount. No problems. *knock on wood*

Sorry I don't have a list, but I know you want to stay away from citrus ones, bergamont, and ginger since they cause photosensitivity.

I have in my notes (but no reference, grr) that pregnant/nursing folks should avoid:

Aniseed, Angelica, Basil, Black pepper, Camphor, Cinnamon, Chamomile, Clary Sage, clove, fennel, fir, ginger, horseradish, Jasmine, Juniper, Marjoram, Mustard, Mugwart, Myrrh, Nutmeg, Oregano, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage, Thyme, Wintergreen
