Essential Oils / Aromatherapy

Essential oils (EO) are concentrated extracts of plant parts.
They are most commonly derived through steam distillation or, often in the case of citrus oils, cold pressed from the rind. Steam distilled citrus oils are also available. CO2 (carbon dioxide) extracts are becoming more widely available through reputable purveyors of essential oils.

The most important things to know about using essential oils safely are:

1. Essential oils have a shelf life.
Keep your oils in a cool dark place and know your source so you can trust the dates your oils were created.

2. DO not drink EO in your water.

3. Dilute your essential oils.
