What is the shelf-life of your products?
Some of our products have a longer shelf life than others depending on the ingredients and if they are oil based. As our products are made with natural ingredients, we suggest a shelf-life of 12 months. We also recommend keeping your products away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
Are essential oils safe to use?
All Essentials by Nature products are intended to be used externally and must never be applied to the body without first diluting the oil. We’d also like to remind you that people with allergies and conditions like sensitive skin should always perform a patch test before using.
When used correctly, essential oils are safe to use. For external use only, be sure to dilute. Consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
Using citrus oils on your skin may increase your sensitivity to sunlight. Before or during sun exposure, avoid citrus oils. Rosemary oil should be avoided in hypertension and epilepsy. Clove and Wintergreen oils should be avoided if taking blood thinner If you have respiratory illnesses such as asthma, COPD, and allergies, be cautious when using peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary oil.
Are your products certified organic?
Essentials by Nature uses many organic ingredients in products that are all cruelty, paraben, and toxin-free. All of our products have been extensively tested on our human friends.
Are your products Vegan?
Our products are made with plant-based ingredients, but they are not certified as vegan.
Can I use Essentials by Nature products on my children?
Always dilute your essential oils before using them with children. Just like with any other product, make sure you read and follow the instructions on the label.
I'm pregnant, can I use essential oils?
If you're pregnant or nursing, we suggest that you seek your doctor's advice before using essential oils.
Can I use essential oil products with my pets?
Some essential oils are not safe for your pets. Use essential oils with caution and speak with your veterinarian before use.
