The world of essential oils is a crazy place rife with expert and not so expert opinions but in the case of good essential oil storage practices I defer to a chemist who offers practical information on the matter of temp, light, colored or clear. #1 Essential Oil Storage Tip - Colored glass or clear glass? Essential oil chemist Dr. Robert Pappas, Ph.D. chemist has this to say about "colored or clear" and more...
In summary, if you just take extra measures to keep the airspace to a minimum and the temp at 75 or below (lower for citrus and chamazulene containing oils) you can keep the oils smelling nicer for longer periods as well as extend their effectiveness and these two things will contribute far more to the preserving of the oil than any colored bottle will do.

I RECENTLY GOT A BURN ( FROM BOILING LIQUID) ON MY FOOT. I IMMEDIATELY WIPED THE LIQUID FROM MY FOOT AND GRAB LAVENDER SALVE. APPLIED THE
SALVE SEVERAL TIMES THE FIRST DAY THEN WENT TO BASICALLY 3X A DAY,
BY THE SECOND DAY THE ONLY BLISTERING I HAD LEFT WAS JUST THE RIM OF THE BURN AND ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT..HEALED OUT COMPLETELY IN 5 DAYS..
THAT IS UNHEARD OF..ALL MY FAMILY IS IN AWE..THEY ARE ALL GETTING LAVENDER FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!
Love your recipes and info thanks!!!
I have stumbled across your website accidentally. Now I feel I came get enough information quick enough! This is wonderful!
I got several small burns on my hand recently and just happened to have a roller bottle of Lavender & Hemp Seed Oil handy. I rolled some of that on the burns right after they happened and then again before bed that night. Not only did the initial application of the Lavender & Hemp Seed Oil sooth the burns & took away the sting, after the second application I had no more discomfort and none of the burns blistered. I love that stuff lol.
I received nerve pain and block and lavender thieves for Christmas and I am so pleased with them. I have arthritis in my knee and have been living in pain for four months. It helps so very much. Thank you. I will be buying from you now. I Believe in oils and want to learn so much more.
Yes, I only refrigerate my bulk bottles. However, know that it’s best to keep Hemp and RHSO on the cool side and direct sunlight on your bottles is never a good idea!
Is rose hip seed oil and hemp oil ok to keep at room temp?
I keep a bottle of lavender in the kitchen and also in the bathroom in case I or someone else gets a burn. It takes the burn away pretty quickly and the burn also heals without a scar. I was curling my shoulder length hair and burned the back of my neck. I applied a few drops of lavender and the burn never hurt at all! I love essential oils.
Patsy, if you don’t go through your citrus oil quickly it’s a good idea to refrigerate them and, keep airspace in the bottle to a minimum – this should extend their life a little longer however, generally citrus EOs and, citrus EOs begin to lose their therapeutic potency after a year – when that time comes, use them for cleaning!
Do I need to keep my 5, 10 & 15ml bottles of citrus oils refrigerated if I don’t used them a lot? What other oils should I refrigerate? I wish I knew which book to buy to learn the basics & everyday use of EO’s, there are so many books it’s hard to know which ones have the best information for us newbies to the world of EO’s. Also, if there are oils that should be refrigerated, wouldn’t it be best if it said so in the product information of the EO’s in your store? If refrigeration is necessary that information would be very useful for newbies like me. Thank you.
