WHAT GRADE ARE YOUR OILS?
There is no official grading system for essential oils in the US. However,there is awide range of quality from industrial chemicals to flavor and fragrance and even to therapeutic applications. AromaWell was developed by an aromatherapist and life-long lover of medicinal plants.We consider our oils highly therapeutic and source nothing but the best.
CAN I INGEST ESSENTIAL OILS?
Our quality is ingestible but that doesn’t mean you should be doing it. We believe knowledge is power. This practice should be reserved until one is educated on the topic because essential oils are powerful. Many large companies promote ingestion at will and this is a very unsafe practice we do not endorse
CAN I USE OILS ON CHILDREN?
Aromatherapy is amazing for kids.Think sleep, mood, focus! Research suggests some essential oils should be used with caution around infants and young children including eucalyptus and spicy oils like clove, oregano and cinnamon. It is best to diffuse mildly for short periods using an ultrasonic (water based) diffuser near children under 2. Roll-ons used sparingly on the bottoms of the feet are perfect for younger children and more can be used as they get older. School age children might like inhalers better as they are more discreet.
CAN I USE OILS DIRECTLY ON THE SKIN?
Less is more where essential oils are concerned. Our topical products are diluted specifically for the face and body to be safe and effective.As a general rule avoid undiluted application on the skin. Some pure essential oils can be used sparingly (one drop at at time), such as lavender.Definitely avoid essential oils like cinnamon, clove, thyme,lemongrass and other “spicy oils”which are sensitizing and irritating. Bergamot and similar oils can make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Safety information is noted on each of our bottles for your convenience.
ARE OILS SAFE AROUND MY PETS?
Aromatherapy can be beneficial for pets when the right adjustments are made. Remember animals have extremely sensitive noses so much less is needed and specific protocol should be followed. Never use undiluted oil on an animal’s body.Please contact us if you have specific questions about an oil or animal.
WHAT IF I’M PREGNANT/NURSING?
The essential oils we offer have not proven harmful to a developing fetus when used according to directions. There are reports of some plants carrying risks for pregnant women but we do not use essential oils from those plants. Always consult your physician.
