Exposure & symptoms: Theoretically, if a product is only oil without protein or carbohydrate, it would be highly unlikely to have trigger an allergic reaction. If symptoms occurred after ingestion or application and improved with avoidance of the product, then this is suspicious for an adverse reaction. An allergist can review the other ingredients as it may be a hidden allergen.
