Shelf Life of Essential Oils

I am often asked what the shelf life of essential oils is. In order to help people remember, I usually say, “Well, I wouldn’t keep mine any longer than two or three thousand years!” Why would I say that? When archeologists opened tombs in Egypt, they discovered sealed jars of essential oils that were still pure and unspoiled.

But there are things that CAN cause oils to “go bad.”

  • For example, if the essential oil has been diluted with a fatty oil, the fatty oil could go rancid. Often blends will be “cut” with a carrier oil, so this is one thing you will want to be aware of.
  • If an essential oil is not 100% pure and has been adulterated with some other chemical or additive, it would have the potential of going bad.
  • If you do not close your bottle of essential oil tightly, or if it gets exposed to excessive heat or sunlight, the properties of the oil could change. It might not go bad, but it may be different than it was when you first purchased it. Even a little evaporation or polymerization can change the chemistry of an essential oil.

So I suggest you always close your bottles tightly and store them in a cool environment away from direct sunlight. I keep mine in a cabinet or in a case designed to hold my bottles upright. Your storage box or cabinet does not need to be expensive. Use your imagination to re-purpose something that will fit your needs.

Be particular about the oils you purchase and use. I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils, which I have found to be consistently pure unadulterated therapeutic grade. Do your research and don’t compromise on quality. Enjoy your oils! They are a gift from God.

Oh, and by the way, my oils are not 2,000 years old!

Cedarwood — A breath of fresh air!

Cedarwood

Sometimes I go to my oil cabinet and just pick an oil. As I sat down to write I remembered being drawn to Cedarwood this morning. It is one of my favorite oils. I really can’t tell you why, but it is! Perhaps it is because I always think of how good it made me feel when I used to have trouble breathing. Within minutes after applying Cedarwood and breathing it in deeply, my Oxygen saturation would jump dramatically and soon my lungs would relax and I would feel so much more calm!

What essential oil were you drawn to today? How did it make you feel?

Prepare for wellness!

Fall is here prepare

Where I live, the fall colors are at their peak and folks are gathering the last of their garden produce. Thoughts turn to preparing for a long winter.

One thing I do is stock up on my bottles of NingXia Red before I have to worry about the bottles freezing in the sub-zero temperatures while in transit to my home. I double up on my NingXia orders in the late summer and fall and then order other items during the winter months.

NingXia Red is a very powerful antioxidant juice drink. It is packed with nutrition and is a mainstay in my personal wellness regimen. Click here to learn more about NingXia!

NingXia Starter Kit value

Dust Allergies

Dust Mites be gone

Are you allergic to dust? Actually, if you are, you probably already know a lot about dust mites and their itty-bitty poop droppings, which are actually the problem! But did you know there is a natural and safe way to control and eliminate dust mites in your mattresses, carpet and furniture?

A 2014 study conducted in Thailand is very interesting. The researchers used a 2% solution of Clove essential oil in a 95% solution of ethyl alcohol. They concluded that Clove oil is “effective against all stages of live mites including mature and immature mites, larvae and egg stages when direct contact is made.”

Clove oil is a scent I enjoy. It is one of the ingredients in Thieves Spray. So I got to thinking that Thieves Spray would be a simple way to deal the death blow to those nasty mites!  So easy and safe, yet effective! Of course you could also make your own Dust Mite Spray with clove oil and alcohol. I prefer using grain alcohol like Vodka, because it is safer than rubbing alcohol.

So if you have a dust allergy, here are some ways to incorporate clove oil into your cleaning routine!

  • Try adding Thieves Household Cleaner to the washer when laundering bedding.
  • Dust with a solution of Thieves Household Cleaner instead of using commercial dusting products.
  • Clean your carpets with Thieves Household Cleaner.
  • Add clove oil to the carpet shampoo.
  • Spray your mattress once a week with a few sprays of Thieves Spray.
  • Diffuse Thieves or Clove oil in your home regularly.

Can you tell I love Thieves? Well, these are just a few ideas that come to mind. Perhaps you can think of others.
