This storage shelf worked great if you have the space to use it. I prefer reading the side of my essential bottles to the little labels on the top. Quality was as expected. My only complaint is I wish I could find this angled design storage that was a tad more efficient so I could display a few more oils in the same amount of space. But overall I was pleased with this product.

An essential oil is a volatile material derived from a plant, and it usually bears the aroma or flavor of that plant. Although a few animal-derived aromatic products exist (mainly musk, civet, and ambergris), the ones of botanical origin are far more numerous. Like fixed oils (vegetable oil, motor oil), these substances are generally liquids, they won’t mix with water, and they are soluble in many organic solvents. Unlike fixed oils, however, essential oils are volatile: they evaporate rapidly at room temperature, whereas fixed oils will not. Chemically, an essential oil is a complex mixture of 30 to 100 or more compounds. Only with the advent of modern analytical techniques, particularly gas chromatography, have we fully appreciated the complexity of these mixtures. With gas chromatography, an oil is separated into its components, and the relative proportions of the components are represented graphically as a series of peaks—some large, some small. The area under each peak represents the proportion of each component in the oil, and by experience, structural analysis, and comparison of the chromatogram with others made with pure reference chemicals, we can identify many of the components. Next time you touch and sniff an herb, remember that your nose is being bombarded by a wide array of chemicals.
Add tropical atmosphere to your home with this Real Bamboo Essential Oil Diffuser that uses ultrasonic technology. Harmless pulsating ultra-high frequency sound waves create friction in the water molecules causing the water to evaporate into a cool steam. This nebulizing process eliminates the need for heat and breaks up the water and any added essential oils. A cool mist of delicious micro-particles is released into the air whilst increasing humidity levels for an ambiance of well-being.

Hi Kathy, my name is Christian, and I’m a veterinary technician. My dog has also been going through this, and he has literally tried everything on the market. Apoquel, Zyrtec, topical ointments, shampoos, you name it. The only thing that has ever given him relief was CytoPoint. It is an injection that lasts anywhere from 1 to 4 months, depending on the dog and their allergy. It is pretty pricey, but so worth not seeing your fur baby scratching their heart out. Like Teri said, essential oils can be extremely damaging to your pup’s skin, especially if it’s raw and inflamed from the scratching. But I hope this helps! Take care, and God bless!


Health benefits: Camomile essential oil is known to cure spasms, protect wounds from becoming septic and infected, curb biotic growth and infections, fight depression and uplift mood, cure neuralgic pain by reducing swelling in the effected vessels, and soothe inflammation from fever.   It also eliminates gases, promotes discharge of bile, helps decrease visibility of scars, opens up obstructed menses and regulates them, cures pain, reduces fever, and is good for liver. Furthermore, camomile essential oil sedates inflammation and hyper-reactions, improves nervous system health, aids digestion, reduces spasms, kills bacteria, increases perspiration, improves digestion, and fights infections.

Essential oils have also shown to improve learning, memory and ability to focus. Both stimulating and sedative oils can be useful, as oils like peppermint can improve sustained attention over a longer period of time, while oils like lavender can be useful for people going through tough exercises or situations. Furthermore, they can be useful in relieving agitation in individuals with dementia. This is due to their calming and sedative effects. (10)
Some essential oils have sedative properties, which can be helpful for people who are having trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night. Lavender oil, in particular, is known to be an effective sleep aid because of its ability to leave you feeling relaxed and calm. Some other oils that can be used to promote restful sleep include Roman chamomile, ylang ylang, bergamot and vetiver.
Soothe burns and sunburns. Put two to three drops of lavender oil on a minor burn to help relieve the pain. Applied quickly enough, it should stop the burn from blistering as well. Keep a bottle of lavender oil in the kitchen for those burned fingers. Dilute it as described below and apply to sunburns to relieve pain and hasten healing time. Lavender oil is also wonderful mixed with a little organic Aloe vera gel and applied to the skin after sun exposure.

In fact, the benefits of diffusing essential oils into the air are one of the main reasons I’m loving these essential oil recipes. When you apply heat to essential oils, many studies show it can actually denature many of the most important chemicals and compounds, so you are essentially just diffusing the oils for scent, and not for the beneficial aspects.


I am a moderate oil user, meaning I diffuse every night, sometimes during the day and am not a heavy skin application person. Therefore, my collection is small. I love that this is two separate trays so gives you some wiggle room with the layout (side by side, in front of each other or split into two rooms) and I can see each label clearly. If you have a ton of oils to keep out you'd probably prefer a vertical organizer.

As a digestive aid. Peppermint oil is superb for helping to relieve indigestion and heartburn. Put just one drop of peppermint oil into a glass of water and drink. It works much more quickly than peppermint tea due to the concentrated nature of peppermint oil. If it’s too strong for you, just dilute it (see dilution instructions below) and rub it across the tummy.
How do I go about getting the free book on Essential Oils by Ty Bollinger? Within the past year, I have been reading more and more about essential oils and their amazing benefits. The problem is knowing what brands to purchase that are not toxic even from health food / vitamin stores. I live in Toronto ON Canada so its difficult to get it shipped from the USA.

It helps to reduce lines and wrinkles by tightening and toning skin, accelerates the healing of blemishes, skin ulcers and wounds, and stimulates cell regeneration.

For acne and blemishes, apply it neat directly on the problem area, unless you have very sensitive skin, then dilute as described below.
As an anti-aging antioxidant. Oregano oil’s high antioxidant content makes it perfect for fighting the effects of aging, which is all about free radicals creating havoc throughout the body. If using it topically, be sure to dilute as described below because oregano can be a “hot” oil when applied to the skin. Always avoid the skin around the eyes and other sensitive areas.

Pour water into the tank of your still. If you made your own still, your tank is the pressure cooker. Use clean water; it should be ideally filtered or distilled and as soft as possible. If you're using a manufactured still, follow the manufacturer's direction. Otherwise, just make sure you have enough water to complete the distillation. Depending on the plant and on the quantity, distillation can take anywhere from a half-hour to six hours or more after the water boils.
These shelves are great!! They fit in a drawer and can be customized to fit almost any drawer. I organized my oils alphabetically in the simple shelves and I am able to easily see the labels. It also stores them upright enough so you don't have to worry about spills and because they are being stored in a drawer you don't have to worry about light exposure. If you have a lot of oils to store the shelves are a little pricey but well worth the money. This is the best method I've found to store my oils.

A pilot study published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice found that the use of aromatherapy as a complementary therapy helped to reduce anxiety and depression scales in postpartum women. Women between zero and 18 months postpartum were divided into either a treatment group that inhaled a blend of rose and lavender oils or a control group that didn’t receive any type of aromatherapy. After four weeks, the women using aromatherapy had significant improvements in anxiety and depression symptoms compared to those in the control group. (12)
