    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The production of an essential oil and therefore its quality, can be affected by:

    • A.

      When it's harvested, where it's grown, altitude, and climate.

      The cost of the plant.

    • C.

      The size of the plant.

    Explanation
    The quality of an essential oil is influenced by several factors, including when it is harvested, where it is grown, the altitude of the region, and the climate conditions. The timing of the harvest can affect the concentration of active compounds in the plant, while the location and altitude can impact the soil composition and sunlight exposure, which in turn affects the plant's chemical composition. Additionally, the climate conditions during growth can influence the overall health and vitality of the plant, ultimately affecting the quality of the essential oil produced.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Smells are interpreted by....

    • A.

      Olfaction in the nasal cavity.

      The epithelium cells in the nose.

    • C.

      The limbic portion of the brain.

    Correct Answer
    C. The limbic portion of the brain.
    Explanation
    Smells are interpreted by the limbic portion of the brain. This is because the limbic system, which includes structures like the amygdala and hippocampus, is responsible for processing emotions, memories, and behaviors. When we smell something, the olfactory receptors in the nose send signals to the olfactory bulb, which then transmits information to the limbic system. This allows the brain to associate smells with certain emotions or memories, leading to the interpretation and recognition of different odors.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

      Has been proven to have a minimal affect on hormones.

    Correct Answer
    B. Has been shown to stimulate the secretion of antibodies.
    Explanation
    Inhaling essential oils has been shown to stimulate the secretion of antibodies. This means that when essential oils are inhaled, they can trigger the immune system to produce antibodies, which are proteins that help to fight off infections and protect the body from harmful pathogens. This suggests that inhaling essential oils may have a positive effect on the immune system and can potentially enhance its ability to defend against illnesses.

    Explanation
    Adding a base oil such as olive oil or almond oil is the recommended action if an essential oil accidentally gets in your eyes. Base oils have a higher viscosity than essential oils, so they can help to dilute and remove the essential oil from the eyes. Additionally, base oils can help to soothe any irritation or discomfort caused by the essential oil.

    Correct Answer
    A. Has levels of toxicity in their body which would need to be addressed by a qualified healthcare practitioner.
    Explanation
    If a client has a severe reaction to an essential oil, it is more likely that they have levels of toxicity in their body that need to be addressed by a qualified healthcare practitioner. This suggests that the client may have accumulated toxins in their body, which can lead to adverse reactions when exposed to certain substances, such as essential oils. It is important for a healthcare professional to assess and address the client's toxicity levels to prevent further reactions and ensure their well-being.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    According to the text, a carrier oil....

    • A.

      Helps dilute the oil for your client's skin.

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. Helps dilute the oil for your client's skin.
    Explanation
    A carrier oil helps dilute the oil for your client's skin. This means that it is used to reduce the concentration of an essential oil before applying it to the skin. Essential oils are highly concentrated and can cause skin irritation if used undiluted. By mixing the essential oil with a carrier oil, it becomes safer and more suitable for direct application to the skin.

    Correct Answer
    C. After the session if you sense they've had a good experience.
    Explanation
    A good time to ask for a referral is after the session if you sense they've had a good experience. This is because the client is likely to be in a positive state of mind and satisfied with the service they received. By asking for a referral at this time, you increase the chances of receiving a positive recommendation from the client. Additionally, waiting until after the session allows the client to fully experience the service and form an opinion before being asked for a referral.
