Frequently Asked Questions
The short answer is, essential oils come from plants. Essential oils are an oil which has typically been distilled—usually using steam or water—from the bark, leaves, flower, roots, or other parts of the plant. They are highly concentrated oils that contain both the aromatic and chemical properties of the plant.
Most of your essential will be good for up to 3 years if stored properly. They need to be kept cool, and the lid should always be tightly sealed. There are some oils that are good for 10 years or more, such as patchouli.
The exceptions to this rule are tea tree oils and lemon oils. You can expect those to be good for a year or two, but again, only if they’ve been stored properly.
Essential oils expire because of a process called oxidation. Oxidation is caused by oxygen and moisture. You’ve probably seen it happen on old metal that’s been left outside a long time.
If the smell changes or gets weaker, or you notice they’re cloudy or viscous, they’ve probably gone bad.
The takeaway here is to keep your oils in a cool place. Don’t put oils in the freezer. Contrary to some myths about freezing oils to check whether they’re real, all oils will freeze!
Note: if you keep your oils in the refrigerator, be sure you put the bottles in a sealed glass or plastic container or your butter might taste like tea tree oil (yuck)!
Not typically. If you are using a dark oil though, it may stain.
You can! There are great ways to use oils without a diffuser
No, they aren’t. As I mentioned above, essential oils are distilled from plants. Fragrance oils are synthetically created in a laboratory.
A chemist manufactures a scent so it smells like something else. Ever had a candle that smells like apple pie? That was a fragrance oil at work.
