    Explanation
    Styrofoam, baby oil, and petroleum jelly should never be used when working with essential oils because they can react with the oils and cause damage or contamination. Styrofoam is a type of plastic that can dissolve or break down when it comes into contact with essential oils. Baby oil and petroleum jelly are derived from petroleum and can also react with essential oils, altering their properties and potentially causing skin irritation or other adverse effects. It is important to use appropriate containers and carrier oils when working with essential oils to ensure their effectiveness and safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Essential oils and their carriers should be stored 

    • A.

      In the refrigerator

    • B.

      In the freezer

    • C.

      In a hazardous materials locker

    • D.

      In a cool dark place

    Correct Answer
    D. In a cool dark place
    Explanation
    Essential oils and their carriers should be stored in a cool dark place because exposure to light and heat can degrade the quality and potency of the oils. Storing them in a cool dark place helps to maintain their chemical composition and extend their shelf life. Refrigerating or freezing essential oils is not recommended as it can cause the oils to solidify or crystallize, altering their consistency and potentially damaging their therapeutic properties. Storing them in a hazardous materials locker is not necessary unless they are being stored in a professional setting where strict safety regulations apply.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When blending essential oils, for "direct site application" the general proportion to keep in mind is

    • A.

      10% oil to 90% carrier

    • B.

      3% oil to 97% carrier

    • C.

      1% oil to 99% carrier

    • D.

      50% oil to 50% carrier

    Correct Answer
    B. 3% oil to 97% carrier
    Explanation
    When blending essential oils for direct site application, it is generally recommended to use a low concentration of oil to carrier. This is because essential oils are highly concentrated and can be irritating or even harmful when applied directly to the skin. By using a 3% oil to 97% carrier ratio, the essential oil is diluted enough to be safe for direct application while still providing its therapeutic benefits.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

      Ingest ANY oil

      Apply oils directly to skin without a carrier

    • C.

      Inhale the fumes from the oils

    • D.

      Put oils on the bottoms of your feet

    Correct Answer
    A. Ingest ANY oil
    Explanation
    It is important to exercise great care when ingesting any oil because some essential oils can be toxic when consumed orally. Ingesting oils without proper knowledge and guidance can lead to adverse effects on health. Therefore, it is crucial to consult a professional or do thorough research before ingesting any essential oil.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Only certified Aromatherapists should work with essential oils

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect because it is not necessary for only certified Aromatherapists to work with essential oils. While certification can provide a higher level of knowledge and expertise, it is not a requirement. Many individuals, such as enthusiasts and individuals practicing self-care, can safely and effectively use essential oils with proper education and guidance. However, it is important to note that essential oils should be used with caution and understanding of their potential risks and proper usage guidelines.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Some essential oils are up to 100 times more powerful than pharmaceutical alternatives

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that contain volatile compounds with various therapeutic properties. Due to their high concentration, some essential oils can be much more potent than pharmaceutical alternatives. This is because pharmaceutical drugs often contain synthesized or isolated compounds, whereas essential oils contain a wide range of natural compounds that work synergistically. Additionally, essential oils can have multiple benefits and can be used for various purposes, such as aromatherapy, skincare, and natural remedies. Therefore, it is true that some essential oils can be up to 100 times more powerful than pharmaceutical alternatives.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The healing properties of essential oils get into the body by means of (select all that are applicable)

    • A.

      Inhaling the airborne particles disbursed into the air

    • B.

      Absorbed through the skin into the blood stream

    • C.

      Consummed by eating the foods that produce the oils

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Inhaling the airborne particles disbursed into the air
    B. Absorbed through the skin into the blood stream
    Explanation
    Essential oils have healing properties that can be absorbed into the body through two different methods: inhaling the airborne particles disbursed into the air and absorbing them through the skin into the bloodstream. When essential oils are inhaled, the particles enter the respiratory system and can have therapeutic effects on the body. Additionally, when essential oils are applied topically, they can be absorbed through the skin and enter the bloodstream, allowing their healing properties to take effect. Consuming foods that produce essential oils does not directly introduce the oils into the body, therefore it is not a correct method of getting the healing properties of essential oils into the body.

    • A.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Some essential oils have antimicrobial properties that can effectively kill certain viruses and bacteria. These oils contain compounds such as terpenes and phenols that have been shown to have potent antimicrobial effects. In some cases, these oils have been found to be even more effective than certain pharmaceutical drugs in killing certain strains of bacteria and viruses. Therefore, it is true that some essential oils can be used to kill virus and bacteria that even powerful pharmaceutical drugs cannot kill.
