Therapeutic grade essential oils are non-toxic concentrated botanical substances that are extracted through a process of distillation and expression. Extractions come from woods, roots, fruits, leaves, and flowers each containing various particularized compounds making up their aromatic characteristics that are often recognizable.
For instance, Citrus oils: sweet orang, grapefruit, lime, lemongrass and lemon; Flower oils: rose, ylang-ylang, jasmine and neroli; Herbs and Leaves: spearmint, peppermint, rosemary, juniper and cypress; Woody, Resinous oils: frankincense and cinnamon.
Additive free oils in an undiluted state are highly potent and should be used with care and kept away from mucus membranes and areas of the eyes. To protect them from light and oxidation damage the oils are to be stored in air tight amber or blue glass bottles or metal canisters and kept away from sunlight in a cool dry place.
Direct application to the skin should be avoided to prevent skin irritations. When applying essential oils topically to the skin they are to be paired with a carrier oil, such as, coconut, olive, sweet almond or grape seed to name a few. These oils may also be distributed with the use of a diffuser.
Citrus oils cause photosensitivity and should not be applied topically when in the sun and pregnant women should avoid using basil, almond, black pepper, cedar wood, chamomile, cinnamon, clove, rosemary and clary sage. When in doubt the user should seek advice. Moss & Palm distributes Young Living essential oils which are 100 percent pure grade and never expire.
