The Aura Cacia bottles are square, and I wasn't sure if they would stay oriented straight or would roll around at funny angles. They sit straight and look great. Be sure to set the back of one on top of the front of the one behind to "lock" them together in place. These come with tacky pad stickers to place on the bottom so they don't slide around in the drawer. Very well thought out product.

This is especially true because essential oils benefits are vast and essential oils uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care and natural medicine treatments.
Pour the oil into a container for storage as quickly as possible. Most essential oils can be kept for at least one or two years, but some have very short shelf lives.[8] To maximize the useful life of your oil, keep it in a dark glass bottle or stainless steel container. Use a clean funnel to pour the oil into the container, and make sure the container is clean before pouring the oil into it. Store it in a cool, dark place.[9]
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)

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.
Oh you’re so welcome!! I LOVE diffusing citrus oils, some of my favorites! I’ve never had an issue with our diffusers that way… but to clean them, fill it with half vinegar and half tap water and let it run a few hours. You can put it outside or in the garage or in a room you’re not using if you don’t like the scent 😉 Then in the morning or whenever you’re done, just wipe clean!! It keeps them running fresh! Hope that helps 😉

Thank you for your lovely article. I am very happy to know about the Crock pot! I have just planted a herb garden with Lavender, Rosemary, Sage, Oregon, Thyme and I also have a very old lemon tree. I have used your recipes to make soap. I can use the lavender in the crockpot Correct? I too am interested if I can make oil out of the lemon? And would I add a branch of a Lavender with flower in the soap after I heated it up, (the soap I mean). Thank you Debra!
As a general rule always mix your essential oils with a carrier oil before applying them to your body!!! There are VERY FEW exceptions to this rule and many company’s out there will lead you to believe it safe and even teach their sales people that it is. Essential Oils even though they are natural are still chemical cocktails and can cause injury and irritation when not used properly. So if you are not a trained Aroma-therapist then always dilute to be safe.

As far as your pup’s skin allergy, I understand how frustrating it must be for the both of you because I have been going through that with my fur baby (Yorkshire Terrier) for a while now, as well. The vet has her taking Apoquel which seems to ease off from scratching herself. Her paws seem to be what bothers her the most. There is a product I have tried before called Natural Dog Company (https://naturaldogcompany.com/) that sell things for their skin, paws, noses, etc. I have bought their Paw Soother stick and it helped my dog’s paws a lot! Maybe you can check them out. Hope these two links help you and your pup out 🙂

After years of carrying around this unasked question, I discovered that the term “essential oil” was coined by the sixteenth-century alchemist Para­cel­sus because, in his mind, these substances contained the quintessence of plants. Centuries earlier, Greek philosophers had proposed that matter appears in four forms (air, earth, fire, and water), and ­Aristotle had proposed a fifth form—in Latin, the quinta essentia—which would represent the essence of things. To Paracelsus, the oils ­represented the most concentrated form of the individual character­istics of the plant—its essence. Today, I often get a blank stare when I tell people that I breed essential oil plants. However, like most people, I love to talk about my intense interests, and given time, comfortable surroundings, maybe a cup of tea, and a willing ear, I’m likely to launch into a discussion of one of my favorite subjects—essential oils.

What are essential oils good for? Well, here are the many oils uses for your body (including oral, hair and skin care), general health (such as for allergies, digestion and sleep), the home (DIY all-purpose cleaner, mold killer, etc.) and recipes (including with healthy foods, drinks and sweets!). And see my handy essential oils uses chart to tell you exactly how much of each oil to utilize.

Essential oils are highly-concentrated essences derived from different parts of aromatic plants, including bark, leaves and flowers 2. The oils are used in a number of ways, from skin-care products to aromatherapy. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of essential oils available and choosing the best one for your needs can be overwhelming 2. Fortunately, there are a handful of commonly-used oils that cover most of your needs and can be found easily at local heath-food stores or specialty shops.
Health benefits: Patients regularly use this essential oil because it reduces spasms, maintains the fluidity of blood, fights allergies, inhibits microbial infections, dissolves and clears blood clots, reduces inflammation from fever, and is good for nervous system health. Furthermore, it reduces various other types of inflammation, clears phlegm and reduces coughs, heals scars, protects wounds from becoming septic, stimulates proper bile discharge into the stomach, makes skin smooth and young, dissolves mucus, and kills fungus. It is also notoriously good for liver and spleen, while stimulating urination and regeneration of new cells.

Improve blood flow to brain. Eucalyptus oil is known to be a vasodilator, meaning it dilates, or opens, blood vessels. In 1994, Austrian researchers discovered that eucalyptol, a phytochemical in eucalyptus oil (also known as 1,8-cineol), improved global blood flow to the brain after only 20 minutes of inhalation.9 A newer study released in 2016 by Korean researchers found that eucalyptol is also able to pass through the blood-brain barrier, a protective membrane that separates potentially harmful substances from harming delicate brain tissues. This research also found eucalyptol’s high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to be helpful in the management of chronic conditions such as respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, and degenerative nerve and brain diseases.10


Health benefits: It can be employed to eliminate spasms, give relief from rheumatism by removing toxins, protect wounds from becoming septic, and it kills bacteria.

Rose oil is a great multi-purpose oil, but it can be very costly due to the difficult extraction process. It can take up to 60,000 roses to produce one ounce of rose oil, according to Rose-Works. “The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils” by Julia Lawless recommends rose oil for treatment of eczema, depression, stress and symptoms of menopause and sexual dysfunction 12.

Making your own pure essential oils at home involves a distilling process and this means purchasing or building your own still! While it is possible to make your own still from various items around the home, it may be safer to purchase a home still from an online store. Something like one of these alcohol stills will set you back over a hundred dollars but could be viewed as a nice investment.
Another researched essential oils benefit is their role in aiding and improving digestion. Some oils help to relieve upset stomach, indigestion, diarrhea, stomach spasms and even conditions of the gastrointestinal system, such as IBS. Oils can also aid your digestion by helping to stimulate digestive enzymes that make it easier to break down and absorb the nutrients, fats and protein that you need.
