- Aromatherapy and Aromatic Inhalation: Oils are easily diffused into the air, and diffusers provide the perfect way to practice aromatherapy. Essential oils, when diffused, help create greater spiritual, physical, and emotional harmony with therapeutic benefits. See our assortment of diffusers.
- Body and Skin Care products: A therapeutic, fragrant ingredient in personal body and skin care products when added to vegetable/carrier oils, massage oil, lotions, and baths. See our massage oils and our vegetable/carrier oils.
- Synergistic Blends: Essential Oils are commonly blended to create a synergistic therapy, often amplifying the beneficial properties of the oils. Also see Starwest Aromatherapy Blends and Touch-Ons, which are also made with 100% pure essential oils.
Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Highly concentrated, dilute properly before use. Keep away from eyes & mucous membranes. Not for internal use.
Packaging: To preserve and maintain their beneficial properties for years, our essential oils are packaged in light resistant, dark glass amber bottles. Our 1/3 fl oz sizes are fitted with a dropper insert that allows a small amount of product to be dispensed, with a tamper-evident child-resistant lid. Our 4 fl oz and 16 fl oz sizes come with a pressure sealed lid with a taper seal poly liner. These elegant bottles are the perfect way to protect light-sensitive liquids like essential oils, because the dark amber glass helps prevent light degradation.
Storage: Best stored away from light and heat. If stored properly, essential oils will maintain their maximum beneficial properties for many years, with a minimum 5 year shelf life.
