This is especially important when using Citrus Oils and some of the hot oils like Cinnamon, Thyme and Oregano.
Glass and metal containers are always your best bet, but there are some plastics that can hold up the potency of doTERRA's pure essential oils. #1 and #2 plastics are okay, but the main one being:
HDPE plastic (High Density Polyethylene).
For example, the plastic reducers used in essential oils bottles, and the spray nozzles on the glass containers we buy from our oil distributors are made of this hard thick plastic. They are acceptable when making your homemade recipes.
Do not ever use:
Plastic Drinking Straws
Plastic Kitchenware and Flatware
Styrofoam Cups and their equivalent
Disposable Water Bottles
Thin Plastic Containers
Solo Cups and their equivalent
Drinking water with my Lemon every day is a must for me. I not only drink more water, like we all should, but I get that daily detox dose from the doTERRA Lemon Essential Oil, too.
