Internally: Only certain oils are suitable for internal use but great care must be taken as they are very potent and can cause harm. Consult your herbalist for safe internal use of essential oils.
How to store essential oils: Essential oils should always be kept in a cold dark place. Keep them out of reach of children. Always keep them in their original glass bottles or in other glass bottles of your preference. Never bottle them in a plastic bottle, as essential oils eat through plastic and will create a mess on your shelves.
