Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. is currently investigating certain essential oil products claiming to be natural and pure. However, in reality, they contain petroleum products, which can be harmful to the skin and body in multiple ways. Young Living and doTerra scams are two getting the most attention.
Even the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) has acknowledged potentially dangerous behavior of brands like Young Living and doTerra. The issue is believing the products you are buying are pure. Then learning that they have trace petroleum contaminants, which can cause harm to the skin and its natural respiratory properties. Plus, petroleum-based products are recognized as potential carcinogens and xenoestrogens, the latter offsetting estrogen levels in our bodies.

For instance, essential oils can be used as a cooling agent for the skin, for beautifying the legs and hips, and for calming the skin.
