  1. Always keep your essential oils in a dark glass container, away from heat, light, and humid conditions. You can also store them in the refrigerator if necessary.
  2. Use a glass or ceramic bowl when mixing ingredients that contain essential oils. The essential oil may ruin certain types of plastic.
  3. Don’t leave the cap off the bottle.
  4. Essential oils have a much longer shelf-life than dried herbs or spices. While oils may be more costly in the initial stages, over the long haul they will prove to be more cost-effective.
  5. Because all essential oils tend to have different viscosity levels, don’t drop the oil directly into your mixture. Drop the required amount on a spoon and then into your mixture to ensure you have the proper amount.
  6. A little goes a long way. Add one drop, stir, and taste. Repeat until you’ve reached your desired result.
  7. Try to avoid touching the insert with your fingers as your natural oils may affect the oil composition.
  8. If you are baking with kids, be sure to keep the oils out of reach. Essential oils are highly concentrated and should always be used with caution.
