This dark blue oil is simply divine! Highly anti-inflammatory it also is calming, soothing, and just plain wonderful! Great for skin conditions and for attention and emotional issues. If you have never experienced it...it is a must have in my opinion!
This Lime oil is Cold Pressed so it retains more of the plants natural chemicals - however this does mean that it is photosensitive. Do not apply to skin within 12 hours of sun exposure. For some in aromatherapy, the complete Lime Essential Oil is preferred to the Steam Distilled - however cold pressed oils can spoil faster, and refrigeration and proper storage is recommended for the longest storage potential. Most cold pressed oils have an average shelf life of 1-2 years.
An uplifting oil, it is reported to have benefits for skin and the cardiovascular system.
Although use of this oil can be controversial in the animal world, there are distinct properties that can be incredibly helpful in some situations. As Tea Tree oil has intense popularity in cleaning products and other household goods, I feel it is important that you have access to a Tea Tree that I feel is safe for use around animals if you select to use it. This is the best we have ever found, and it has been used in our household, around our animals, and with patients in need of its unique characteristics when other essential oils have failed.
Single essential oils are desired by many people for a variety of needs - from cleaning creations to home crafts and recipes. Although we urge you to use the specially created blends and products for your animals, we feel it is important to provide access to high quality single oils that are appropriate for use in animal homes.
For additional information on the properties of various single essential oils - we recommend reading various books such as The Animal Desk Reference, Essential Oil Safety by Tisserand & Young, The Practice of Aromatherapy by Jean Valnet M.D., Medical Aromatherapy, The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils, or Advanced Aromatherapy by Kurt Schnaubelt.
While no book is perfect, and the world of essential oils is continually changing and growing - these books, as well as many others will give you a nice platform for understanding individual properties of essential oils beyond just our website.
In general - single oils will not have instructions for their use. These are purely provided for your own personal creations or household applications.
