Essential Oil Disclaimer

DISCLAIMER: 

I have read, researched and put into practice the methods in Valerie Ann Worwood’s The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy. The concoctions posted on my website are directly cited from this resource. With over 640 pages of 800 natural, nontoxic and fragrant recipes, I have selected those that are most relevant to me and my following. If you desire further information, please refer to the book.
I was skeptical, at first, at how effective essential oils can be and the vast variety at which their use can remedy. Much to my surprise, not only are they potent and fast acting, but the plain fact that they offer a natural solution is an immeasurable benefit. Although collecting the various types of essential oils can seem pricey, no oil will go to waste. Each will be used a multitude of times in different combinations, or even alone. See it as an investment in your health and well-being—whether you’re using essential oils as a household cleaner, to relieve stress, air freshener, or face mask. The exciting world of essential oils awaits you…


WHERE TO PURCHASE:

You can purchase your bottles from any craft store or online. I, personally, use a set collection of amber bottles from Amazon. I prefer dark glass, as it better preserves the shelf life of the essential oil mixtures in which they will contain.

As for essential oils, I mostly source from Young Living and Mountain Rose Herbs. If you are new to essential oils and would like to learn more before incorporating them into your life, Essential Oil Haven is a great quick and easy resource that covers what to look for in terms of quality control and standards, as well as a guide to the top 10 brands and their reviews.


CARRIER OILS:

Carrier oils, also known as base oils, are used to diffuse essential oils and absolutes before they are applied to the skin. They are named so because they, quite literally, carry the essential oil onto the skin and into your system. Diluting essential oils is a critical safety practice when using essential oils.
