All of our single essential oils have a 2-5 year shelf life and our blends have 2 years of shelf life. Our bottles are designed to keep light from reaching the oils however we still advise storing them at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Keep in mind that citrus oils are more sensitive and have the tendancy to oxidise more easily than other essential oils. As essential oils are volatile compounds and evaporate fast, always make sure to close the lids after each use.




Can I use the roller blends in a diffuser?


No, you are only able to use our single oils or undiluted essential oils blends.




What essential oils cause photosensitivity?


Please keep in mind that any citrus essential oils will be photosensitive. We recommend to stay out of the sun for 12 hours after application, or to use the essential oils on a section of your body that will not be exposed. Please be sure to wear sunscreen and do not use any form of tanning beds as you can burn and damage your skin. As a precaution, each of our bottles, blends and purefumes indicate a warning for sun exposure. Essential oils to avoid in direct sunlight or prior to a sunbed treatment are all citrus oils, ginger, cinamon, citronella, lemongrass and clove. Note that we are speaking only for the essential oils that we carry, and recommend for you to do further research in regards to other types of essentail oils available on the market.




Does essential oil stain skin or fabric?


If you have a white pillow case, make sure the oil is completely absorbed by your skin before laying down for the night!





Diffusers

Does my diffuser come with a warranty?


All diffusers come with a 1 year warranty.




Are the diffusers BPA-free?


The plastic reservoir of our diffuser is made from high quality, BPA-free plastic.




Are the diffusers ultrasonic?


Yes! This means that they emit no heat and run through vibrations. Because of this, the plastic, water and oils are not heated while diffusing and the plastic has no interaction with the essential oils. Our diffusers are designed and built to diffuse essential oils, covering approximately a 500 square foot space. Due to its ultrasonic nature, it mists into the air and adds some moisture to the surrounding environment, but not as much as a traditional humidifier does.




How do I clean my diffuser?


We recommend cleaning your diffuser once a week by adding a little bit of vinegar into the water and running it for 10-15 minutes. Empty our the water and wipe off clean after.
