      They must be stored with a tight lid & in a cool environment.
      They love glass either colored or frosted because they are light sensitive
      They are not an oil in the true sense of the word, they evaporate and will float from our skin into the air yet can penetrate into the blood stream!
      They live active for years if treated with care1
      They do not like extreme temperatures
      They are not uniform, colors from clear to green, light to heavy weight & disperse differently sometimes cloudy!
      They do not mix well with water, they love fatty acid oils, alcohol, soap, honey & eye yolk!

      Distillation: is the number one preferred method of organic & natural gurus.
      Plant Materials
      Container , tube & receptacle with cool water
      Content is heated, plant live droplets are carried by steam to receptacle
      Lighter oils float to the top…voila essential oil
