Full Answer

Essential oils reportedly contain cosmetic and medicinal qualities. They are sometimes used to replace over-the-counter remedies when a more natural healing method is desired. Essential oils are easily absorbed into the skin, but they are not meant to be ingested. They are very potent and can last a long time. Usually only small drops are necessary for any type of treatment. It is not uncommon for some essential oils to last up to 10 years. Citrus oils, however, don't last quite as long. Their shelf life is usually about two years. Some essential oils require the use of a carrier oil which helps dilute the oil's potency and serves as a product base. Almond and coconut oils are often used as carrier oils.

For an essential oil to be considered pure, the isolation process must be done by physical means only. The methods used in the physical process are expression, also known as cold pressing, and distillation with water and steam.

    How do you use essential oils?

    A:

    According to the University of Minnesota, essential oils can be applied to the skin, inhaled or ingested. However, it is important to consult with an aromatherapy book or professional before getting started, as different oils have different properties and all oils cannot be used in the same ways. The application method used typically depends on the effects desired from the oils, as well as the type of oil being used.
