Essential Oils

Essential Oils

Pure Essential Oils are used in Aromatherapy and healing and in fine perfumery.  They are the natural odorous, volatile oils derived from plant material.  These may be herbs, shrubs or trees and all parts of the plant may be used.  Most essential oils are obtained by a steam distillation process.  Many citrus oils are obtained by cold pressing, and also contain the natural colour from the fruit.  Essential Oils should be diluted in a carrier before use on the skin and should be researched for Essential Oil Safety.  We only stock 100% Pure Natural Essential Oils that conform to Australian Standards.  If you are looking at these ingredients for use in LIP PRODUCTS OR FOOD, please read this page.

You can also download our Dilutions Guide PDF Here which has guidelines for Fragrance and Essential Oil usage amounts.  If you are short on confidence, ideas or experience, why not check our Scent Blending Page for suggestions. It is useful to use a solubiliser with essential oils, especially if using in the Bath.  Use Polysorbate Solubiliser PEG Free or CCG Solubiliser to help disperse oils in the water.
