Frequently Asked Questions

Are all the ingredients of the essential oils sourced from Australia?

All our products are bottled in Australia, however not all ingredients are sourced from Australia. Climate, growing conditions and season availability, means we source oils from countries where that plant grows best to ensure they contain the best active constituents to perform according to the high standards we set. We source ingredients from countries aligned with our manufacturing, ethical standards, and Quality Assurance standards.

Are Nurture Our World’s essential oils organic?

Our oils are 100% organic. We promote the benefits of using natural and organic oils in everyday applications including beauty, health, and household remedies. We offer 100% organic essential oils and create signature blends.

What assurance is there for the quality of Nurture Our World’s products?

We are often asked how we can make such high-quality products so affordable. We believe in investing in our ingredients and not fancy packaging or expensive advertising. Therefore our packaging is not pretty or perfect. This in turn allows the customer to be able to purchase quality affordable organic essential oil products.

Can Nurture Our World’s essential oils be taken internally?

Essential oils are natural compounds of the specific plant they are derived from. While they are natural per say, they are highly concentrated and have the capacity to cause serious damage if used internally without the necessary expertise in administering them. And although some essential oils may be consumed safely, such as in cooking, and have wonderful health benefits, we do not recommend unless under advice from a trained aromatherapist or medical practitioner to be sure ingesting the oils are safe and do no harm to persons, just like any medications.

Do I need to dilute Nurture Our World’s essential oils when using topically?

Yes, is the short answer. Essential oils are volatile, which means that they evaporate quickly. When you dilute essential oils the evaporation process is much slower. Using a carrier oil with your essential oil, ensures the essential oil is carried into the skin far safer and you use less of the essential oil. Carrier oils can also have therapeutic benefits.

Are essential oils safe for pets?

Essential oils can be toxic for pets. Please ensure bottles are not left lying around, left unopened or in reach of pets. Each pet will differ, so use caution when diffusing oils around pets. Watch their behaviour, changes in eating or drinking habits, leaving the room when diffusing. If you notice any changes in your pet or they accidentally ingest essential oil, please go to your veterinarian immediately with the essential oil bottle is possible. Peppermint, Citrus oils, Tea Tree, Pine oil, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon and Ylang Ylang are all toxic to cats and dogs.

What is the shipping cost?

The shipping of our products are free Australia wide. Any international shipping will incur an additional fee and this will be disclosed at the check out.

How are your products packaged?

Our product packaging is designed to protect the high-quality products inside. We use glass bottles as we believe they are the most beneficial for quality control, to ensure the essential oils do not degrade or break down. In addition, we take pride in using green materials that can be re-cycled, re-used and composted, to ensure your products arrive safe and sound.

Why does it take so long for a product to be re-stocked?

We prefer to have our shelves sit empty than have them heavily stocked and sell an inferior product that does not meet our high standards. Climate, shipping, crop availability all has an impact on the availability of the organic essential oils that we source. For this reason, some oils may not be readily available.
