A pure essential oil is 100% true to the plant from which it is sourced. It is a pure plant extract; a volatile liquid taken from a single botanical source mostly extracted by steam distillation. As a result, they retain the fragrance of the part of the plant used which is always earthy. A synthetic oil is made by blending synthetic chemical compounds in a laboratory in an endeavor to duplicate the scent of the flower not of the pure essential oil. This results in loss of some of the natural properties of the plant. However, this is will give very strong fragrance.

Essential oils are extracts from specific plant parts such as petal, bark, peel, stem etc…. There is only a very small amount of oil in the plant part from which the oil is taken. Some oils such as Lavender produce a high yield of oil whereas Rose requires 30 to 40 rose heads to produce 1 drop of pure essential oil. Hence the cost of pure Rose makes it an investment and a worthwhile one at that. Other factors which contribute to the final delivery and price of a pure essential oils include cultivation, farming methods, distillation and finally storage.

Essential oils are highly concentrated and potent liquids and are therefore not recommended to be used directly on the skin. Cold pressed oils are the natural carriers for pure essential oils. Base oils or Carrier oils facilitate absorption of essential oils in the body without causing any damage, when mixed in correct proportions.

Certain oils are not recommended for use during the full term of pregnancy, especially the herbs. As there is a lack of research in this area, the best course of action is to err on the side of caution. In case you are drawn to a specific oil during this time, do consult your doctor or a qualified aromatherapist for guidance.

Essential oils should not be ingested unless prescribed by a healthcare practitioner because ingestion if administered incorrectly may carry health risks. Given their concentration levels, essential oils can be toxic if swallowed.

It is not recommended to use essential oils internally. These are not to used inside eyes, ears, nose or any other internal areas.

The lifespan of an essential oil varies as oxygen, heat and light affect the overall degradation of the oil so storage is critical to its preservation. For example, Orange oxidizes very quickly and has a shelf life of about 18-24 months while Patchouli which is thick and viscose gets better with age. All our products have expiry dates recorded on the bottle. Despite this date use your own judgment before discarding an expired oil. You just may be discarding a perfectly good oil which has matured over time!

The way you apply aromatherapy blends have an impact on their healing capabilities. You will experience better results if you use small amounts of the oils diluted in a carrier oil or massage lotion. Check out our "How to Use" section under Aromatherapy page for more details.

Our blends come in the dark glass bottles that meet all the safety requirements. Ensure that the caps are screwed tight after every use and keep them in a cool, dry space, preferably out of the direct sunlight.
