As people are choosing more and more often to make their own household and personal products the safety of preservatives is a hot topic. As Plant Therapy continues to share DIY products to show how to safely and effectively use different essential oils, we will be using preservatives in some of these products.
However, we are not experts in preservatives. We are experts in aromatherapy. If you have any questions on the ingredients we choose to use or any other questions related to the specific DIY recipes we share, we are more than happy to help! But, if you have any questions regarding preservatives, we recommend you do your own research and/or contact an expert in preservatives.
Here are some links and a couple charts that have helped answer some of our questions on preservatives. Hopefully these get you looking in the right direction on preservatives and why they are sometimes needed and recommended. Thanks!
