What Kind of Essential Oils Do you Source?
The Essential Oils we use are of the highest quality and most tightly regulated in the industry. They are in compliance with ISO 9001:2008, come with Material Safety Data Sheets, Certificates of Analysis, GC Reports, and the ingredients that are Certified Organic are certified by the leading Independent Organic Certification Company, QAI.
Is Palo Santo Endangered?
Palo Santo is the common name of multiple different species of trees. Bursera Graveolens, the type of Palo Santo we use in Everyday Oil, is NOT endangered. There is a lot of misinformation about this circulating, because there is another species commonly called Palo Santo, Bulnesia Sarmientoi, that is endangered. CITES, (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) has updated lists that are available to reference. If Bursera Graveolens ever does become endangered we will not continue to use it and the Palo Santo we use is sustainably harvested.
Are Your Ingredients Cruelty Free?
Yes, absolutely, always
Is Your Packaging Zero Waste?
Yes, when you receive a shipment from Everyday Oil every element is recyclable, from the box and shipping materials to the bottle itself, which is glass.
Do you have a Re-Use Program for Everyday Oil Bottles? Can I Send My Bottle Back to You?
At this point, we are not able to re-use bottles, but we highly encourage you to recycle your bottle by re-using it for another purpose or by recycling it just as you would any other glass bottle
Do you have a Refill Program?
We currently have a refill program in NY and LA at Otherwild General, and will be expanding the program. Thank you for your interest in this!
Can I Use Sunscreen with Everyday Oil? Should I put it on over or under EO?
Here at Everyday Oil, we only recommend using sunscreen when you will be in direct sunlight for over 20 minutes. Vitamin D is important, and unless you are using zinc or titanium dioxide, the toxins in mainstream sunscreen are, in our opinion, more dangerous than a small amount of sun exposure. When applying sunscreen, we recommend applying it after applying Everyday Oil.
Can I use Everyday Oil While pregnant?
Yes, we have many friends and customers who have reported safely using Everyday Oil during pregnancy. According to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, none of the essential oils in Everyday Oil are contra-indicated during pregnancy and there have been no recorded serious incidents related to normal essential oil use during pregnancy.

If you have any concerns at all, always check with your physician.
Can I Use Everyday Oil On Infants?
There is conflicting research on this, but we don't recommend using products containing essential oils (or scents of any kind) on infants under 1 year old. Essential Oils are powerful and while many people have safely used essential oils in safe dilutions, we feel they are a bit too strong for newborns. Always do what you feel is right for your family, but we recommend our Unscented blend for newborns and anyone that might be sensitive to essential oils. As always, use your discretion and check with your physician if you have any concerns
Is Everyday Oil Good For Acne?
Skin issues can be incredibly stressful, and we completely understand the anxiety you might feel about using a product like Everyday Oil on your skin. While it may seem extremely counter-intuitive to use oil on acne-prone skin, some of our most loyal customers have "problem skin" and we highly recommend using Everyday Oil exclusively (as a cleanser and moisturizer) if you are experiencing breakouts. We have also received reports from customers on acne medication that using Everyday Oil in conjunction with those medications was helpful with the dryness and irritation that those medicines can cause. Please keep in touch about your skin's progress, we love hearing from you and wish you all the best with your skin.
What Is The Shelf Life of Everyday Oil?
The shelf life for Everyday Oil is 2+ years. We recommend storing your Everyday Oil out of direct sunlight, as light can break down organic materials slowly over time.
My Everyday Oil Smells Different Than My Last Bottle, Is There Something Wrong With It?
We use 100% natural ingredients, meaning everything comes directly from plants. Like a plum from the same tree may taste slightly different, essential oils from different harvests can vary slightly due to the weather, soil, rain, etc. Almost all scented products on the mainstream market use synthetic scents, or use elements from pure essential oils that have been altered to "stabilize" them. We are committed to never using synthetic scents and we prefer the most natural form of the essential oils. We think the variation is beautiful, and we hope our customers will embrace the slight differences between blends. Synthetic fragrances will never have the same therapeutic benefits that pure essential oils have.
We use a very specific recipe that is measured to the 100th of an oz, and we make fresh batches of oil every two weeks. We stand by our products and quality control. If you ever have any issues email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the batch number from the bottom of your bottle.
