If any oils get into the eye/s, flush with running water for 10 minutes.

 

8/ Q. What do I do if I have a skin reaction to the products?

If a skin reaction to an oil or blend occurs after application, discontinue use and wash off thoroughly with soap and water immediately. Some oils can irritate sensitive skins. If any irritation persists, obtain medical advice.

 

9/ Do you have “hypoallergic” products?

Yes, I would suggest the pure Macadamia Oil or Macadamia Beauty Bar, also the Macadamia Body Butter.  None of these will produce any skin reaction for a sensitive skin. Please refer to the section on Hypoallergic Products. Please refer to the Articles Section for more information.

 

10/ Q. What should I do if I think I may have an allergy to a particular oil in a product?

You can do a skin patch test before using the product by rubbing a small amount into an area of skin on the inner thighs or inner upper arms.  Leave for 5-10 minutes, if there is no skin reaction, you are able to use the product.

 

11/ Q. Can I use aromatherapy products when I am pregnant?

You should not use aromatherapy oils without consulting an Aromatherapist.  Some oils can have a stimulating effect and this is a contraindication with pregnancy. Some oil blends can be used during childbirth. See section on “Women, Babies and Children’s Products”. Please refer to the Articles Section for more information.

 

12/ Q. What do I do if my child accidentally swallows some oils or cream?

Products should always be kept out of reach from children.  Do not induce vomiting, but give a small amount of water and seek immediate medical attention.

 

13/ Q. Do you have a satisfaction guarantee?

Yes, I am very confident in the quality of my products and provide a 21 day satisfaction guarantee from the receipt of your products. If you are unsatisfied with any product purchase, please return to me at PO Box 970, Murwillumbah NSW 2484 and I will replace it immediately.  Please also notify me by email or letter, what the problem is, as I will always endeavour to remedy the situation.  Your feedback is valuable to me and for the quality assurance of my products.

 

14/ Q. How long is the shelf life of your products & how should I store my essential oils and products?

Our oils will last in prime condition for up to 18 months if kept airtight in a cool, dark, dry place, away from direct sunlight.  Some products contain a synthetic preservative which can increase the shelf life to 2 years.  See question 19 below.

 

15/ Q. How much essential oil is actually used in your products?

As raw essential oils are extremely powerful and concentrated they should not be used directly on the skin. I recommend 3% blend for the body and 1% for the face and for children. Any stronger can actually have a burning effect on the skin.

 

16/ Q. Are any of your products tested on animals?

No. I am totally against experimenting on animals and I refuse to use raw ingredients from any suppliers who are involved in such practices.

 

17/ Q. Are your products all Australian?

As far as possible I use and promote Australian raw materials in the making of my products. However some of the pure essential oils I require for my blends are not produced in Australia, so they are carefully sourced from other countries.

 

18/ Q. How do I use these blends in my bath?

Pour a capful into the palms of your hands, massage well into your skin, then relax in a warm bath for 15 minutes. This way the oils can penetrate easily through the layers of your skin, into your blood stream and not be left around the bath for you to clean! ENJOY

 

19/ Q. Do you use any preservatives in your products?

Yes, some of the products contain a synthetic broad spectrum, paraben free, anti-microbial preservative called Propylen Glycol.  This ensures an extended shelf life of 2 years. It is made from propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea &  iodopropynl Butylcarbonate.
