Forgot to answer this. Phototoxic means that if it's on your skin and you come into contact w/ the sun it can cause you to burn easily.

Thank you!

I already use lavendar for lots and lots - I bath my son in water with a few drops of it to settle his excema.
Tea tree oil is too harsh for me mostly, but good for the really yucky infection.
