Contents of each bottle:
It is best to dilute essential oil in a carrier oil (i.e. Grapeseed) if you intend to prepare a massage oil. Don't use essential oils neat onto your skin. For an absolute oil, start with 10% of this blend to 90% carrier and increase absolute oil until you have desired aroma strength.
Alternatively, use only 4 drops of each oil on a tissue, in the bath or dripped onto a radiator or sink. The oils will evaporate naturally and so you can also remove the cap and place on a high shelf (away from children and pets), to diffuse fragrance into a room.
Note: There is no such thing as Blue Lotus Essential Oil, only Blue Lotus Absolute. The extraction method is expensive and this is why we dilute the oil to 10% to make it economical to buy and use. The scent is very strong even though it's at a 10% dilution.
For external use only, avoid contact with eyes. Do not use on children, or when pregnant or while using medication. Keep out of reach of children.
An essential oil should not be used instead of seeing a doctor for medical advice. Never self prescribe and if in doubt please ask your doctor. Do not use on sensitive skin and always do a small test of the oil before use. This product contains Sweet Almond Oil which is a Nut. If an allergic reaction occurs, wash off the oil with soap and water and then seek medical attention.
You might smell the oil before you open the package but this is common with strong oils that have come from an essential oil supplier.
We now use new 10ml green glass pharmaceutical bottles.
These bottles are designed for pharmaceutical use, they are impact resistant but care should be taken with glass bottles on hard surfaces. They are designed in Austria and use green natural glass, they are not sprayed. They can be recycled over and over again. The bottles weigh 23.5 grams and all bottles come with 10ml (equiv. of 10 grams) of content. The lids weigh 2.5 grams. So each bottle weighs around 36 grams total.
A dropper cap is inside the bottle for easy usage, this can be removed if you need the oil to drip quicker. Thicker oils, like Patchouli have a different dropper cap to allow the oil to drip quicker. The cap is tamper evident.
If you are testing a scent for the first time, please do not ask for refunds or leave negative feedback because you dislike a scent. i.e. Patchouli is a good example, many would consider it the Marmite of Essential oils.
We are unable to refund open bottles for hygiene reasons. Any damaged bottles will be refunded or replaced.
We suggest using your oil within 12 months of purchase. Some will last longer and some scents mature with age.
