Preserving Essential Oils For Long: A Strategy That Works!

Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on

How to preserve Essential Oils? The simple answer to the question is to store your EOs:  

  • In an airtight container 
  • In a dark colored glass bottle
  • Away from heat or sunlight 
  • Somewhere cool, like in the fridge 

These are aromatherapy basics by the way. If you store them in plastic containers, the EOs will melt it and your money will flush down the toilet. If you don't keep them in an airtight container, they'll oxidize, losing all their therapeutic benefits. So, get done with the BASICS, and be ready for some ADVANCED level preservation - To increase their shelf life without losing their therapeutic properties over time.   

Preserving Essential Oils For Long: A Strategy That Works!

For that you can try incorporating the following habits, while you're using these potent compounds and use them for longer periods. 

  • Don't let your EO bottle stay uncapped for a longer period. It'll help you reduce chances of exposing them to oxygen.  
  • Use smaller containers to store your oils and blends to further limit exposure to heat. 
  • Make sure, your EOs are stored at an ideal temperature of 2 to 4 degrees centigrade or 36 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Don't keep them even near the stove as they're inflammable. 
  • Store your containers in wooden boxes where they can easily maintain the temperature. 

When you go from basic to advanced level of preserving your EOs you're automatically doing good for increasing their shelf life.  

Preserve more. Use more.
