Edens Essentials 100% pure essential oils are highly concentrated botanical oils and are never adulterated. We source our ingredients by quality, not price, to ensure the best grade of aroma therapeutic use.
Essential Oils Food Grade Statement:
The following essential oils are considered Food Grade based on their listing in the Food Chemical Codex (FCC) and/or Gras (Generally Regarded as Safe) status with the FDA. Food Grade means they are suitable for use in cooking and flavoring applications.
Essential oils should never be ingested or taken orally undiluted.
To make some of the more costly oils affordable, we have blended them with jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is a highly stable mixture of wax esters extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant, Simmondsia chinensis. Due to the chemical structure of jojoba oil, it does not oxidize easily or turn rancid (unlike other, less expensive oils) which makes it an excellent choice for blending with our quality essential oils.
Applications: Massage is one of the most common applications of essential oils. The essential oils are added at 1-3% into a carrier oil such as jojoba, sweet almond, or olive oil. Essential oils are diluted into carrier oils or lotions and can be used as a daily part of your routine. Adding essential oils to baths are another excellent way to enjoy their benefits, however, all of the oils should be diluted into a carrier oil (with the exception of lavender) before adding to the bath. Burners and diffusers are also a great way to enjoy the therapeutic properties of essential oils. Usually the oils are used undiluted for this purpose. Other methods utilized to experience the properties of essential oils include room sprays, saunas, inhalations, compresses, perfumery, and many more.
