PROTECTING YOUR OILS
❖ Do not leave oils in extreme temperatures (hot cars, freezer, near windows)
❖ Do not place oils in direct sunlight
❖ Do not leave the lids off your oil bottles (this will speed up the oxidation causing the oil to lose its potency.)
❖ Do not boil or heat your oils in any way to distribute them aromatically. They will lose all therapeutic value
