Essential Oils are most often
derived by the steam distillation of fresh herbal materials from around
the world: leaves, stems, fruits and flowers. Essential oils are highly
concentrated and should always be treated with care and respect. Quality
oils are never adulterated or diluted. Like the herbal material from
which the oils are derived, essential oils should be stored properly.
They should be diluted before using them in any manner, as irritations
can occur. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes and keep out of
the reach of children.
It is advisable to consult a naturopath, chiropractic or medical doctor,
or other alternative medical practitioner before attempting a
traditional or folk remedy.
Enjoy the natural, fragrant, sensual experience of essential oils. Make
candles, soaps, potpourris, perfumes, massage oils, bath oils, etc. But
remember, a little goes a long way! Use with care!
