Frequently Asked Questions

Let us know if you would like additional information.

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.
Essential oils, or aromatherapy oils, are the fragrant essence of a plant. These highly concentrated liquid oils are the foundation of aromatherapy, which is based on the idea that the aromatic oil from a plant has healing properties.
Essential oils are extracted one of two ways – either by steam distillation or expression, or pressing. Distillation is the most prominent method used to extract aromatherapy oils, however. This technique involves steaming the plant matter until it breaks down. The byproduct of this breakdown phase is the plant’s fragrant oil, which is cooled, separated from the water and finally filtered into its pure essential oil.
It is not generally recommended. In their pure form, essential oils are highly concentrated and can burn your skin, or some oils will even pass through the skin and into the bloodstream. It is suggested that you mix them with a base or carrier oil which decreases the possibility of skin irritation.
It is not recommended to use essential oils internally. Given their concentration levels, essential oils can be toxic if swallowed.
How you apply essential, or aromatherapy, oils has an impact on their healing capabilities. You will experience better results if you use small amounts of the oils diluted in water or with a carrier oil or massage lotion. Check out our application page for more detailed methods.
Yes, but do so with caution. We recommend avoiding the use of essential oils during the first trimester, and then light use (no more than 1% dilution) through term.Oils like geranium, grapefruit, jasmine, mandarin, neroli, tangerine, and ylang ylang are considered safe oils to use during pregnancy.
Essential oils are best kept in dark glass bottles with screw tops. They should be kept in a cool, dry space, preferably out of the direct sunlight.
Certain essential oils can trigger physical or emotional effects on their own. For instance, lavender is a widely known calming agent, whereas peppermint is a mood lifter. Other oils are blended to achieve a desired physiological or psychological effect. Blending ylang ylang with grapefruit relieves stress, for example. Each oil has its own special benefit.

It’s Absolutely Amazing!

I have another advance in my regaining health in that I am not cold this winter. Usually I am bone-chilled cold. I hated to get out of the covers in the morning. I hated to wash my face with water because it is always cold and it goes right through me. But, I don’t have any of those feelings this year at all. It’s absolutely amazing!

My hands and feet used to be frozen all the time no matter what shoes or socks I wore, and I would do layers. Normally I would have had a turtle neck, additional shirts, and anything to keep myself warm. Now I have just a little tank top on and this shirt.

Since we’ve been working on the thyroid, the lump is also going down significantly. It feels good. I’m excited!

I run to DayStar Natural instead!

My son had Lyme’s disease. So, I went running to the pediatrician. He put him on two different antibiotics, which had terrible side effects including severe sun sensitivity and vomiting. Then my daughter was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease after that. I brought her to DayStar Natural instead and treated her naturally. She recovered completely with no side effects. So, now instead of running to the doctor for antibiotics, I run to DayStar Natural!
