Choose your essential oils

Due to the increasing popularity of aromatherapy, you can find many essential oils on the market. But there is nothing mandatory informing the customer about the quality of the oil contained in the bottle.

You can rely on the seller's reputation, and the prices displayed. According to their different production costs, differences in pricing can be huge, from one oil to another.

The word "oil" does not necessarily mean that an essential oil has an oily consistency. On the contrary, for most species, the pure product is of a rather watery appearance. Normally, if you pour a drop of essential oil on a paper towel, it must evaporate and leave no trace. An oily stain may be a sign that the product is not pure, but cut with another vegetable oil, for more quantity at a lesser cost.

Experts will rely primarily on the smell of the finished product. With years of experience, they are able to distinguish the good products from the bad ones. Some prefer this method to the gas chromatography analyses performed in the laboratory.


Store your essential oils


Keep your essential oils in amber glass vials, labeled, tightly closed, away from light, heat and moisture.

They thus retain their properties for a period of about two years.


Use your essential oils

Essential oils can be used for their aroma, in perfumery, often diluted with alcohol.

For therapeutic indications, they can be inhaled, or included in the composition of massage oils. You simply follow the directions of your doctor or aromatherapist.

They can also be used for the daily care of the body in the bath, in the shower, by spraying, or included in the composition of shampoos or soaps.


They can be diffused in the home, using heat provided by diffusers, light bulbs, or mixed with steam, generated by humidifiers, or used in sprays.


They can also enter into the composition of sprays for use outdoors, in your garden or on your pets.



Each of these methods has preparation steps, and a dosage, to respect in order to obtain the expected results.



Each essential oil formulation described on this website is accompanied by a description of the most appropriate methods to achieve its goals.  A good knowledge of all of these instructions will allow you to achieve excellent results in no time.
