You are a brave soul. When I am not absolutely sure what a person
who tells me that they had a reaction and therefore removed the paste
actually reacted to...I never reapply. I have to be absolutely sure
that it is the oil...the lemon...their reaction to the heat...some
medication they are taking...some skin problem they just
developed...and on and on and whatever it may be.

My thoughts about liability would be that a person who signs a waiver
and states they have no know allergies or reactions to any of the
ingredients in my paste, but then has a reaction has held me not
responsible if he/she has a reaction. But, if I know they had a
reaction and then apply the paste...even with some subltle
change...and the person has a reaction, then I applied the paste with
some knowledge that the person has a sensitivity or allergy to
something in my paste. I think I bite the bullet on that one in case
something serious takes place. I am not sure if even having the
person sign a waiver the second time would protect you since you have
knowledge that there could be a problem the second time the paste is
applied. You have no reason to have such knowledge the first time
and therefore, the waiver should protect you.

Anyway, at best it is tricky without knowing exactly what caused the
person to have the first reaction. It is also good to have some
knowledge of what certain types of reactions look like. Not that you
can do anything about it...just you can rule certain things out.
Like if someone tells you their reaction to your paste made their
entire arm swell up...their glands swell...and face breakout. You
know that is not your paste...LOL!!!

Take care.
