It’s a shame that so many of these flower and plant oils are potentially irritating.

Melissa, I agree.

Any ingredient is a possible irriatant to someone somewhere no matter if it is natural or synthetic. I use a serum with Daisy Blossom every day and it never bothers me but does work great on my hyperpigmentation. The medical director at my office uses it as well, not only does it not bother her it works great to fade her freckles. She is very Irish and at one time was one giant freckle as can happen.

Diana, that’s so true. One skin’s saviour can be someone else’s nightmare.
