In the link below is an Effa allergen calculator for essential oils in excel format which may prove useful to assist anyone trying to work out allergen content in their product.

Obviously, no warranty or responsibility is given for its use, but in any case, you are free to use it to assist your product development / experimentation.

Kestra, I'm finding this resource an excellent tool - I need to ask you something though.

I've posted it somewhere else and I think it got lost.

What does the 'warning' mean when it shows up on the right hand side table? And what PSA means too?

Many thanks for your help with these!

Sorry, must have missed your question.

The PSA levels were in the original data sheet from Effra that I modified to simplify calculation.
I expected they meant something to someone, but not me.

This question has come up before, and by googling I couldn't find any references.

Click across to the tabs at the bottom, the allergens in EOs should be listed there.. use the calculator to work out the % of allergan based on your % use of your EOs.  Sort into %, higher to lower and list according to your formulation, depending on the %.

What do you suggest I do for blends I have more than 5 essential oils in?? could I do 5 and take note of the allergens of those, then do the other, say 3 afterwards and take note of the allergens of these ? or would this not give correct total allergen?? somehow I don't think they would. What is the best way to calculate if I have 7 essential oils (without having to calculate them all longhand  Shocked )
