The Gnostic Store offers essential oils by Rocky Mountain Oils (RMO), created by a collection of wellness enthusiasts who were determined to provide essential oils that are pure and safe to use at a cost-effective price. Rocky Mountain Oils' essential oils are the highest quality available.
They are called "essential" because they contain the essence of a plant, including its aromatic and wellness properties.
Essential oils are becoming extremely popular worldwide, but what exactly are they? In short, essential oils are concentrated, liquid plant extracts used for aromatic and wellness purposes. They are called “essential” because they contain the essence of a plant. Essential oils come from a variety of plant sources, including flowers, grasses, fruits, roots, trees, and leaves.
There are several main ways to use essential oils.
One of the most effective ways to use essential oils is with diffusion. A diffuser is an inexpensive device that uses water vapor to "diffuse" the oil into the air.
If your essential oil is right for diffusing, you’ll notice a Diffuse icon on the label. We do not recommend diffusing oils that do not have this icon.
Using a diffuser is easy: Fill the diffuser with water to the recommended line, put 5-10 drops (more or less as needed) into the diffuser and then turn it on. The ultrasonic technology produces vibrations at a high frequency, turning the water into mist. As you breathe in the aromatic mist, the oil's beneficial properties are immediately absorbed into your body.
Another effective way to use essential oils is to apply them topically. Make sure your oil has the Topical Application icon on its label before applying. This method works best when you have a specific area of the body that needs relief. After you've diluted your essential oil with a carrier oil, apply it to the desired area and the oil will be absorbed into the body. Do not apply essential oils to sensitive parts of the body.
When applying essential oils topically, we recommend that you always use a carrier oil to protect your skin. Because our essential oils are authentic and pure, their high levels of concentration can irritate the skin when applied without a carrier oil. Olive, jojoba, avocado, sweet almond, grapeseed and fractionated coconut oil are a few great options. Remember, carrier oils do not limit the effectiveness of the essential oil in any way; they just safely transfer the oil to your skin.
Essential oils are volatile compounds. They are sensitive to heat and oxygen, and they can lose their potency if they are not cared for properly. Always store your oils in a cool, dark place, with the lid tightly capped.
