The Safe Use Of Essential Oils at Home

I am often asked about using essential oils safely at home. My first response is always check the oils you are considering using- most modern essential oils should have an expiry date so check this. Essential oils are a natural product and do not contain preservatives so anything out of date should not be used on the skin as there is a risk of skin irritation. 
Once you have established that the oils are in date check where you store them. Essential oils should be kept in their original dark coloured bottles.

My Top Three Essential Oils

The most difficult question you can ask any Aromatherapist is ‘What are your Top Three oils?’, but I’ll give it a go!
My number one oil can change daily depending on my mood and who I am working with at the time. I might open a tiny bottle of an essential not used for a while and think ’this has got to be my favourite, why have I neglected it for so long?’, then that can all change the next day!
Having said that I nearly always return to the classic oil Frankincense, mainly because of its power to visibly calm and comfort.
