Q. What is patch test?
If you have sensitive skin or have never used an essential oil on your skin, we advise conducting a patch test prior to using the essential oil. Apply a small amount of diluted essential oil on to your inner arm. Watch for redness or irritation over the next 24 hours. If either occurs, do not continue to use the essential oil topically.
Q. Should I go in sun after the application of the oils?
Certain essential oils, such as citrus oils, contain molecules that react with sunlight or UV light from tanning beds. When applying these oils topically, it is important to avoid direct sunlight for 12-48 hours.
Q: What is an absolute?
Absolutes are not true essential oils, although they are aromatic, volatile and used in aromatherapy and perfumery. They are produced by alcohol extraction, after which the alcohol is removed by vacuum distillation. The extraction is done on something called the concrete — a thick, fragrant material extracted from the plant with a hydrocarbon solvent such as hexane. The concrete contains the essential oil as well as fatty acids and waxes. Alcohol dissolves the essential oil, and the non-fragrant components either precipitate or are filtered out. This method is used for delicate plants (usually flowers), where heat distillation would damage or distort the essential oil, or for plants with a very low essential oil content that makes distillation impractical. The most used aromatherapy absolutes are jasmine and rose. Absolutes such as carnation, hyacinth and gardenia are used in high quality perfumery.
Q. What are the various application areas of essential oils?
Essential oils can be widely used in different ways. Some of the major areas are:
- The therapeutic powers of essentail oil can be used best for massages
- Highly beneficial for curing respiratory disorders and thus can be used during inhalation
- Can be mixed in bath water
Q. Please guide me on storage of oils?
It is always best to store oils at room temperature and keep them away from direct sunlight. Refrigeration after opening is always recommended.
Q. How is an essential oil different from a fragrant oil?
Essential oils are obtained from plants or different parts of a plant and obtained using steam distillation, while fragrant oils are obtained using CO2 Extraction / Supercritical Extraction.
Q. Are the products 100% pure?
Our 100% pure and natural essential oils are distilled at our govt compliant Factories. This means that once the plant is picked, the oil is extracted, placed in a barrel, sealed, and shipped directly to our warehouse. Many aromatherapy products claim to be 100% pure and natural, but they are not. Whether they are for cosmetic, massage, or aromatic purposes, they often contain harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients and the only way to find is through GCMS test which is done by all reputed laboratories.
Q. What is CO2?
CO2 extracts, like absolutes, are solvent extracted products. The key difference is that the solvent in this case is simply CO2 or Carbon Dioxide (that’s right, the same stuff you exhale with every breath!). Obviously, carbon dioxide is a gas under normal atmospheric conditions, but under certain conditions of low temperature and high pressure we can actually force Carbon Dioxide to become a liquid. In the liquid phase CO2 happens to be a good solvent for extracting out the aromatic molecules from plants.
