These are simply wonderful. I keep my oils in drawers to protect them from heat and light. These little racks are perfect. Before I had to pick up each bottle to read the label, now I can easily see the labels without having to go through the bottles one by one. I have a lot of oils and the company I buy from uses squarish bottles, but they fit perfectly on here. Love it. A real convenience and time saver! These are good quality racks and look nice too.
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.
Essential oils are found in various plant parts. The oils of peppermint, patchouli, basil, and geranium come from the leaves and stems, clove oil comes from flower buds, and oils of jasmine, rose, and tuberose come from the open flowers. Oils are produced from the whole dried and crushed fruit of anise and coriander, the peels of citrus fruits, the seeds of cardamom, the wood of cedar, the bark of the cinnamon tree, the roots of vetiver grass, the needles of fir trees, the twigs of ­cypress trees, and the exuded resin of myrrh—in short, just about every anatomical structure. Some plants produce more than one type of oil. The flowers of bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) yield neroli oil; its leaves, pet­itgrain oil; and the fruit peel, orange oil. Cinnamon is just as versatile, supplying different oils from its leaf, bark, and root.

Those include wormwood, rue, oak moss, Lavandula stoechas, camphor, parsley seed, sage, and hyssop. Ask your doctor if you’re unsure.
