Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Essential oils are flammable and a good example would be the orange.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts from plants, which contain volatile compounds that can easily catch fire. This is because they have low flash points, meaning they ignite at relatively low temperatures. Oranges are commonly used to extract essential oils, and their oil is indeed flammable. Therefore, it is true that essential oils, including orange oil, are flammable.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A  blend would include the following ingredients:  (Select Four)

    • A.

      Carrier oil

    • B.

      Two drops of a Top note oil

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Carrier oil
    B. Two drops of a Top note oil
    C. Two drops of a Middle note oil
    D. Two drops of a Base note oil
    Explanation
    A blend typically consists of a carrier oil, which serves as a base for diluting the essential oils. Additionally, a blend would include two drops of a top note oil, which provides the initial scent and is usually light and refreshing. Two drops of a middle note oil would also be included, which provides the body of the scent and is typically warm and balancing. Finally, two drops of a base note oil would be added, which provides depth and longevity to the scent. Therefore, the correct answer is carrier oil, two drops of a top note oil, two drops of a middle note oil, and two drops of a base note oil.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The top note oil plays an important role in "fixing" the blend as it holds back the oils that are the quickest evaporating, and Its function is also to maintain the aroma of the blend.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer "False" is that the statement is incorrect. The top note oil does not hold back the oils that are the quickest evaporating, but rather it is the opposite. Top note oils are the quickest evaporating oils in a blend. Additionally, the function of top note oils is not to maintain the aroma of the blend, but rather to provide the initial burst of fragrance.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Avocado
    C. Sweet almond
    D. Grapeseed
    Explanation
    Avocado, sweet almond, and grapeseed are commonly used carrier oils in aromatherapy. These oils are preferred because they have a neutral scent and a long shelf life. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, making it beneficial for dry and mature skin. Sweet almond oil is lightweight and easily absorbed, making it suitable for all skin types. Grapeseed oil is known for its moisturizing properties and is often used in massage oils. These three carrier oils provide a good base for diluting essential oils and delivering their therapeutic properties to the skin.

  • 6. 

    Essential oils must not be used on broken skin or cuts, wounds or abrasions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Essential oils should not be used on broken skin or cuts, wounds, or abrasions because they can cause further irritation or infection. The concentrated nature of essential oils may be too harsh for damaged skin and can delay the healing process. It is important to allow the skin to heal before applying any essential oils to prevent any adverse reactions. Therefore, the statement "Essential oils must not be used on broken skin or cuts, wounds, or abrasions" is true.
