Can you use a Carrier oil as your moisturizer?

  Yes absolutely! In fact all of our carrier oils are fantastic to use as moisturizers alone. 

 What are Carrier oils?

Carrier oils serve to dilute the essential oil before applying it to your skin. They act as the base for “carrying” the essential oil that is being mixed into it. Compared to essential oils. Because our essential oils are authentic and pure, their high levels of concentration can irritate the skin when applied without a carrier oil, so the essential oil must be blended with a carrier oil properly. It is not hard to do, see ratios below.

Why should certain oils be avoided during pregnancy?

 

Certain essentials oils are considered too powerful for use during pregnancy as they may stimulate the production of certain hormones, and can encourage bleeding. Please consult your physician or a reputable aromatherapist before using any essential oil.
What is an essential oil's Shelf Life?

 

Many essential oils do not have expiration dates. Essential oils like Patchouli and Sandalwood actually get better with age.  However, there are always exceptions to every rule. For example, cold-pressed citrus oils such as Grapefruit, Sweet Orange, Lemon and some pine oils have a much shorter shelf life and generally run their course in about 6 months to one year. We encourage our customers to store essential oils in consistent temperatures with little light to ensure the longest life possible. However, most essential oils shelf life are on average 2 years.
