Centuries of Research

on the uses and effectiveness of essential oils helps us to understand what they are and how they work..

Lavender

is calming and soothing. It may be used aromatically, topically, or in some cases, internally.

Most Essential Oils

are safe for the whole family to use. Be sure to dilute oils when used topically, especially for small children and infants.

Essential Oils

are aromatic plant compounds, extracted from the leaves, bark and flowers of specific plants.

Our Lavender

is sourced from France, where it grows indigenously in optimal climate conditions.



Ten Things You Should Know Essential Oils

1. Essential Oils are not oils at all, rather they are plant extracts (typically cold pressed or steam distilled). Some are oily, some are thin, others are more viscous, all are pure and potent when you buy them from a reputable company. Contact me if you would like to know the brand that I buy and recommend..

2. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.

3. If mold is a problem in your home or school, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.

4. Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.

5. Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60%) to decrease mold growth by:
a. venting bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside;
b. using air conditioners and de-humidifiers;
c. increasing ventilation;
d. and using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing, and cleaning.

6. Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.

7. Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent, and dry completely. Absorbent materials such as ceiling tiles, that are moldy, may need to be replaced.

8. Prevent condensation: Reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (i.e., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.

9. In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting (i.e., by drinking fountains, by classroom sinks, or on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).

10. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.
