Should you perform a "skin patch test?" 


Skin Patch Test: As with all new products, it is best to do a skin patch test to test for possible allergic reactions.  Some people are sensitive to essential oils. When in doubt, test. Apply a small amount of the product you are testing to the inside of your elbow or any other sensitive area. Best to cover it with a band-aide. Leave it overnight. In the morning check for signs of irritation or other skin sensitivity.


What is the shelf life of an unopened Earth Ease Products? 


Our products have a shelf life of about a year. The oils we use are all stable for at least a year and the antioxidants and essential oils, add to that. Since Earth Ease does not use ay chemical stabilizers, factors such as storage temperature, as well as how clean the fingers are that scoop out the product impact the life span of your product. Using Earth Ease products when they are fresh is the ultimate.

If your products don’t contain preservatives how do they stay free of bacteria?
