What’s the best way to look after essential oils?
Essential oils should be stored in a dark-coloured container/bottle and be kept away from direct sunlight. These oils will oxidize, deteriorate and loose their beneficial properties over time if stored in direct sunlight or be exposed to oxidization. If essential oils have sun shining directly onto them, the exposure over a period of months will dramatically speed up the process of oxidization due to the oil continually heating up and cooling down. Best to store these oils in a dark-coloured bottle, in a cool dark place and in a tight, air-sealed container to prevent oxidization.
