"Super Body Care" is a natural skin care line, that uses Peppermint, Tea Tree, Rosemary, Lavender and Bergamot throughout to consistently create the healthiest skin ever.  Certified Aromatherapist Cheri, is a stickler for sourcing high quality essential oils and imports her oils from the best places they grow on Earth.  For example, Lavender is sourced from France, Bergamot is sourced from Italy, Tea Tree is sourced from Australia, Rosemary is sourced from Hungary, and Peppermint grows well in the backyards of Washington State. Earth-Friendly Body Wipes are biodegradable, as is their 3 in1 Shower Gel. 


EO Safety: 

EO definition - oil soluble components made up of volatile compounds

Steam distillation (most common)

Oil soluble vs water soluble (EO vs hydrosol)

Volatile compound, it evaporates

How much plant matter does it take to make essential oil

Essential Oils you can put "neat" or undiluted on the skin

Lavender

Testing for reactions - inside of forearm - quick class exercise

Test on inside of arm using lavender and tea tree. Each person will observe and measure their specific reaction. 

Special Safety tips: 

What to do if you get in the eye

Photosynthesizing oils
