    Essential Oils are up to  _________times more concentrated than raw plant material. 

    Correct Answer
    70
    Explanation
    Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts obtained from plants. They are made by distilling or extracting the volatile compounds from plant material. These volatile compounds are responsible for the characteristic aroma and therapeutic properties of the plants. The concentration of these compounds in essential oils is significantly higher compared to the raw plant material. Therefore, essential oils can be up to 70 times more concentrated than the original plant material.

    What would you do if you accidentally got peppermint essential oil near your eyes? 

    • A.

      Dilute the area with vegetable oil, preferably coconut oil

    • B.

      Dilute the oil with water only

    • C.

      Rub with a dry towel

    Correct Answer
    A. Dilute the area with vegetable oil, preferably coconut oil
    Explanation
    If peppermint essential oil accidentally gets near your eyes, it is important to dilute the area with a vegetable oil, preferably coconut oil. This is because vegetable oils can help to dilute the essential oil and reduce any potential irritation or burning sensation. Coconut oil is a popular choice as it is gentle on the skin and has soothing properties. Diluting with water alone may not be as effective in reducing the intensity of the essential oil. Rubbing with a dry towel may further irritate the eyes, so it is not recommended in this situation.
