WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS ?

They are called "essential" because they contain the essence of a plant, including its aromatic and wellness properties.

Essential oils are becoming extremely popular worldwide, but what exactly are they? In short, essential oils are concentrated, liquid plant extracts used for aromatic and wellness purposes. They are called “essential” because they contain the essence of a plant. Essential oils come from a variety of plant sources, including flowers, grasses, fruits, roots, trees, and leaves.

HOW CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS ?

There are three main ways to use essential oils: diffusion, topical application and household. If you want to know how to use essential oils with children, please consult this helpful article here and be sure to check out our Kids Line that is formulated at a two percent dilution and is safe for topical application on children two years and older.

WHAT'S ON MY BOTTLE ?

NAME - This is the name of your essential oil or blend.

SCIENTIFIC NAME - This section appears on single essential oils, and represents how your essential oil is referred to in nature.

SOURCE COUNTRY - This is where your essential oil was distilled.

SIZE - This number represents the size of the bottle. At RMO, we sell our oils in

5ml or 15ml bottles

ICONS

We have three different icons for recommended use on the RMO essential oils: Diffuse, Topical Application and Household. Some essential oils have one icon, while others can have all three.

CARRIER OILS

When applying essential oils topically, we recommend that you always use a carrier oil to protect your skin. Because our essential oils are authentic and pure, their high levels of concentration can irritate the skin when applied without a carrier oil. Olive, jojoba, avocado, sweet almond, grapeseed and fractionated coconut oil are a few great options. Remember, carrier oils do not limit the effectiveness of the essential oil in any way; they just safely transfer the oil to your skin.
