Essential Oil Tips

  • Before using your essential oils, read the directions on the label carefully. Essential oils are potent substances; they often will need to be diluted before use. They can burn or irritate the skin, eyes and mucous membranes if not handled properly.
  • Use small quantities of oils; only a few drops are needed.
  • Store your oils in a dark, cool place.
  • Children or pregnant/breastfeeding women should not use essential oils without first talking to their doctor or an integrative physician.
  • If you have a respiratory condition such as asthma, avoid inhaling the oils.

  • Lemon is the go to fragrance for me that in aromatherapy uses is uplifting and energizing. It also helps me to be able to concentrate better.

  • I studied with the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy about 20 years ago and besides being a certified aesthetician and authoring a number of books on skin care and beauty, I developed my own 100% ORGANIC moisturizer made of 11 different organic essential oils.

  • Oh how awesome – can you give us the name of your ORGANIC Moisturizer and where we can get it???

  • I like to use lavender oil in my dryer to give my clothes a pleasant smell without all of the chemicals.
