Frequently Asked Questions

General Information

Floracopeia was built on ethics -- they make up the core values of our company. Our strong ecological commitments were set by our Owner/Founder David Crow, and the rest of our team, and have become the driving force behind everything we do. We go to great lengths to make sure that everything down to the sourcing of the plant materials that are then distilled to create these wonderful essential oils are done so ethically and humanely with sustainability always in mind. We have built this company through strong relationships with our source distillers to ensure the quality and humanity behind each part of our manufacturing and sourcing.

We also find it important to help and develop organizations that fit within our ethics, like our Ecuador Palo Santo Project or the Women's Co-Op that produces Argan Oil from Morocco. We believe in providing quality essential oils that are completely pure, unadulterated, and ethically sourced, with the environment and sustainability in mind. We do not test anything on animals ever. I hope this helps to answer your questions about our quality and ethical point of view.

    The orifice reducers on our bottles are meant to protect our precious oils from leaking out of the bottle, while also allowing you to remove a controlled amount drop by drop. The best way to get a measured drop out of our bottles is to hold a bottle between your thumb and middle finger upside down. Gently tap the bottom of the bottle with your pointer finger. A measured drop will come out.

    Body and Skin Care

    Using Your Bountiful Beauty Collection:

    Cleansing the Face:

    Follow these instructions to remove dirt, debris and makeup in the morning and evening: Place a small amount (about the size of a quarter) of Rosehip Seed Oil in the palm of your hand. Warm the oil in the palm of your hand with your fingertips then apply in a circular motion onto your face, neck and chest. Next, remove excess oil by dipping a soft facial cloth in spring water and gently rubbing the cloth in a circular motion on your face, neck, and chest.

    Applying the Nectar of Immortelle:

    Pump about a half pump of Nectar of Immortelle in the palm of your hand and warm it with your fingertips. Then gently pat the serum onto face, neck, and chest.

    Applying the Radiant Glow Serum:

    The Radiant Glow Serum is a hydrating, antioxidant-rich serum that works to seal in moisture, protect the skin and produce a radiant glow. Warm a pump or two in the palm of your hand with your fingertips. Apply to your face, neck and chest by gently patting the serum into the skin.

    Customizing Your Routine:

    Both the Rosehip Seed Oil and the Radiant Glow Serum can be customized by blending with any or all of the oils included with the Bountiful Beauty Collection. You can customize each application or save time by adding the oils directly to the bottle. Below is a list of optional customizations that will help you achieve the exact results you are looking for:

    Optional Customizations:

    To restore youth, smooth lines, hydrate and plump, add a drop of Geranium Sur Fleur Rose Essential Oil to one pump of Radiant Glow Serum. To customize the entire bottle, add 5 - 10 drops to the bottle and shake well to blend.

    To support a healthy inflammatory response, add a drop of Blue Chamomile Essential Oil to one pump of Radiant Glow Serum. To customize the entire bottle, add 5 - 10 drops to the bottle and shake well to blend.

    To support facial rejuvenation and improve tone, add a drop of Carrot Seed Oil to one pump of Radiant Glow Serum. To customize the entire bottle, add 5 - 10 drops to the bottle and shake well to blend.

    To promote clarity and luster to the skin, add a drop of Frankincense Serrata Oil to one pump of Radiant Glow Serum. To customize the entire bottle, add 5 - 10 drops to the bottle and shake well to blend.

    Additional Steps to Support Your Beauty Routine:

    In between cleansing the face and applying the Nectar of Immortelle, spritz your face with your favorite hydrosol to tone, hydrate and prep the skin for the serums.

    Spritz the ends of your hair with your favorite hydrosol to create definition and keep hair feeling moisturized and healthy.

    Once or twice a week, use the Radiance Skin Clay Mask to purify, hydrate and draw out toxins before starting your daily beauty routine.

    If irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately. Contact Floracopeia with any questions atsupport@floracopeia.com or (866) 417 - 1149

    Diffusers

    We carry three different ultrasonic diffusers that are quiet and efficient. A minimal amount of oil will last a long time and fill a room up to about 800 sq feet in an open area. They are easy to use and affordable. They all have a bowl in the center where you add about a quarter cup of water and as much essential oil as you like to whatever strength you desire -- usually between 5-20 drops.

    The Aromamist diffuser is about 6" across and 3 1/2 " tall. It has a very cool illumination system that offers very mellow changing colored lights and runs for about 3 hours.

    The Illumamist diffuser is made from real wood and glass, emits a soft, golden light and has a timer that runs for 30, 60 or 90 min. and is about 7' tall and 5 1/12" wide.

    The Ultramist diffuser is a ceramic diffuser that can run intermittently for 6 hours at 30-second intervals or continuously for 3 hours. It has a white porcelain exterior. It is approximately 9 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches in diameter.

    Every one of our diffusers has an interior made of a high grade plastic specifically designed to withstand the nature of essential oils and will shut off automatically when they run out of water. Our diffusers come with a 90 day return policy on the diffuser if there are any issues with it's functionality.

    The main issue that we have experienced with this device involves the amount of water being used. In order for the device to function properly, the water level must be above the lower, minimum fill line, and below the upper max fill line. If there is too little or too much water in the device, it will not function, and the lights may blink on and off. If the blue timer light comes on, but no mist comes out, there may be an issue with air flow through the opening in the top of glass portion of the diffuser. Inside this opening is a silicone piece that will hold the small plastic dome inside. Sometimes this piece will become compromised which will block the mist from coming out. This will make it seem as though the device is not diffusing at all. To ensure that this opening is unobstructed, please make sure the device is turned off and then remove the glass lid. Turn the glass lid upside down and remove the plastic dome that may be attached inside. Please then look through the opening within the glass lid and make sure that the silicone piece is unobstructed and that you can see directly through the opening.

    If you have followed these troubleshooting tips and are still experiencing an issue with this device, the diffuser is covered under a 90-day manufacturer’s warranty, and may be replaced. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and welcome any questions or concerns you may have.

    Here are some basic diffuser troubleshooting techniques:

    First, make sure that you are using it on a flat, hard, level surface and that nothing is blocking the fan vent on the bottom of the diffuser. Also, unplug the power cord from the unit, then plug it back in.

    Second, you want to make sure that the appropriate amount of water is being used. Fill the diffuser with water up to just below the max fill line. Then check the device by pressing the power button.

    It's also important to regularly clean the device to prevent any oil residue from building up inside the device. It may be helpful to use a small amount of white vinegar with the cleaning brush or a cotton swab, and cleaning the inner basin. Pay special attention to the small circular ceramic disc in the center of the inner basin of the device, as this is where the water and oil is diffused.

    Essential Oils

    Our essential oils fall into 3 categories; certified organic, organic (non-certified) or wild-crafted. The wild-harvested oils are not cultivated and therefore ineligible for certification. We only order from distillers who wild harvest from "clean,” unsprayed areas. We order directly from small farms and distilleries in rural areas where sometimes the services to certify an oil as organic are not available. We rely on our relationship with the distiller and knowledge of their good practices to ensure that the product is grown organically.

    You are absolutely right to do your research, as there is a lot of opportunity for adulterated and sub-par product out there on the world market. Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade is a marketing term that has been coined by another company in the industry. This term does not represent a quality that is any way tested or approved by any nationally recognized body or governance. We believe in standing behind the quality and purity of our oils without using marketing labels, and so we have decided not to use this term.

    We appreciate your interest in our oils. We are quite proud of our product and want all of our customers to understand our dedication to ensuring that we provide only the best!

    Most of our oils are steam distilled. Others are pressed (such as our citrus oils). Certain plants such as jasmine cannot be steam distilled, and those are extracted with food-grade hexane. For those extracts, there is no hexane present in the final product. The plants are grown around the world using zero chemicals, either on a plantation or wild harvested. The oils are pure and have no impurities or adulterants.

    Thank you so much for considering Floracopeia. It is incredibly important to research and find quality products in today's world.

    Unfortunately, we are a small company and don't have the means of testing our own oils. We'd like to establish our own testing, but until we grow to that point, we have several ways of ensuring that what is in our bottles is exactly what it's supposed to be -- pure essential oil of the highest quality!

    First, almost all of our suppliers are able to supply us with their own tests. We do have some distillers who are too small to do their own testing, but it is generally easier for the distillers, as they are working with large batches that will last a long time. We are generally purchasing only small batches to last us around 3 months at a time. We have absolute confidence in the test results that our distillers provide.

    On occasion, we have sent out samples to be tested by an independent French laboratory, but with the size of our company, we can't do that with every batch.

    We do have MSDS and GCM documentation available for many of our oils, and you can email us a request for any specific oil's documentation at: suppot@floracopeia.com.

    While testing oils in a lab can provide some security in the quality of an oil, we ensure quality even more reliably through personal connection and direct sourcing. We do not source from middlemen or the global market.

    Instead, Floracopeia's founder, David Crow, buys directly from small scale "mom and pop" sized producers, often flying across the globe to personally vet the source before we commit to a purchase.

    A few oils, such as Geranium and Neem, solidify in colder temperatures. If you keep the lid on the bottle and submerge it in some warm water for 5 to 10 minutes, it should soften back up into a regular oil consistency. Alternatively, you can simply place the oil in your pocket to warm it up. 10 minutes in your pocket, and your body heat should warm up the oil enough to liquify.

    There are several reasons why we can not recommend essential oils, in general, for internal use. FDA regulations state that promoting any substance as being safe for internal use suggests that it is a food, supplement or medication and essential oils have not been deemed any of these things. If a company is promoting oils as being safe for internal use, they are in violation of FDA regulations and are at risk of being sued, fined, or shut down. Our essential oils are highly concentrated, and some plants are not safe to take internally, so a higher concentrated amount of the volatile oil would be very unsafe. For example, one drop of an essential oil is the equivalent of 25-75 cups of the herbal tea of the same plant.

    All of this being said, our oils fall into three categories; certified organic, organic(non-certified) or wild-crafted. All of our oils are completely unadulterated and free of chemicals. The wild-harvested oils can't be organically certified, as they are not cultivated. We do order from distillers who wild harvest from "clean,” un-sprayed areas. We have a small selection of oils that are grown organically but don't have organic certification, because they come from a very small farm and distillery in a rural area where the services to certify an oil as organic are not available. In those cases, we rely on our relationship with the distiller and knowledge of their good practices to ensure that the product is grown organically. The product page of each oil will let you know how it is grown.

    This is an excerpt from a very important article David Crow wrote on How to Use Essential Oils Effectively. You can view the entire article here.

    Do not use essential oils internally:



    There are two exceptions to this rule.

    The first is properly administered dosages of essential oil medications prescribed by a licensed physician. This is now occurring in certain European clinics, but is rarely available in the US. People should avoid using essential oils internally if prescribed by a lay practitioner, especially if the practitioner’s education is primarily from a marketing perspective rather than clinical.

    The second exception is biocompatible levels of essential oil ingestion when taken as part of the diet. A good example of this is oregano oil. Oregano oil is widely marketed for internal consumption, with numerous claims made about its therapeutic efficacy. In actual practice, the internal consumption of this oil frequently causes the typical symptoms associated with the ingestion of essential oils, such as extreme gastric hyperacidity. On the other hand, the use of oregano as a fresh herb, steamed at the end of food preparation, provides all the benefits of oregano oil at a biocompatible level, with none of the gastric dangers.

    Should accidental ingestion of any significant amount of an essential oil occur, immediately call your local Poison Control Center. Do not induce vomiting. Do not give water if breathing or swallowing is difficult.

    Here is the National Association of Aromatherapy’s stance on internal use of essential oils:

    Can I take essential oils internally? I have heard that doctors in UK/FRANCE- (maybe other countries) do this, so why not in the US?

    Firstly, it is only a very small minority of prescriptions made out by MDs in Europe which would necessarily involve the internal use of essential oils. Secondly, other methods of application may be preferable to internal use – depending on the condition presented. Internal dosing would be inappropriate, say, for a muscle strain, but an aromatherapist might certainly incorporate one into a massage of the affected area.

    Internal use of essential oils might be medically appropriate for severe gastro-intestinal or respiratory infections, for otitis media (acute inner ear infection), or for other internal problems. If prescribed by an MD, the oils that are used may need to conform to pharmaceutical standards of quality (like conventional medicines) – and so hopefully be free of adulterants, heavy metals, pesticides, dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls and other undesirable substances. In a perfect world, you would expect a qualified medical practitioner to be conversant with the full toxicological safety information for the essential oils, and to administer the appropriate doses under clinical supervision as required, to remedy the problem presented.

    Some oils are associated with toxicity problems (e.g. a risk of accumulative effects), and so internal use is not entirely hazard or risk-free. It is also important to keep a more worldly view of these matters. For example Western aromatherapists are warned not to use Wormseed oil (from Chenopodium ambrosioides) because of its acute toxicity and skin sensitizing properties; the oil is banned IFRA (International Fragrance Research Association Code of Practice) and not permitted for use in the UK under the Medicines Order 1977. Yet in spite of the acute risks associated with its use, Wormseed oil plays an important role in health matters other nations, as a biocide in veterinary and ethnic medicine (as a helminthic agent: to expel worm infestations), especially those which cannot afford expensive pharmaceutical drugs.

    Storage of your essential oils is key when it comes to shelf life. Most oils will last 2 years or more ( around 5-8 years generally) if kept in a cool, dark place like a medicine cabinet. Keep them out of direct light and never open the bottle when the oil has become above room temp as both scenarios will cause your oils to lose their aroma and therapeutic value.

    Due to their chemical makeup, essential oils do not turn rancid like vegetable oils, they simply degrade gradually into a state where the therapeutic properties become diminished and the aroma is less desirable or distinct. Your nose will tell you that something is wrong, long before the point when the oils become unsuitable to be added to carriers for use on the skin.

    We don't currently sell our oils in bulk, although we do have a wholesale program available.

    To learn more about our wholesale program you can visit our Wholesale Page here.

    Flower Essences

    Yes, essentially they are made in the Bach tradition but we only used the sun method not the boiling method. Our flower essences are never heated.

    A flower essence is a spring water infusion of flowers. It's an energetic remedy that contains the Qi or Life force of a flower captured by water. Flower essences work directly on our energetic system such as the acupuncture meridians to support wellbeing of body, mind and spirit. Primarily, they are used to address concerns involving the emotions and mind. Secondarily, they energetically support healthy physiological function. Flower essences address what Traditional Chinese Medicine calls Shen or Spirit which is considered our psychological health and wellbeing. We invite you to visit our flower essence product pages for specific examples of the therapeutics of each flower essence.

    Ingredients: Floral water infusion containing 80% spring water & 20% organic grape alcohol.

    Similarly, our Flower Essence Tinctures represent the full spectrum on a scale of botanical concentration from very subtle to extremely concentrated. For example, the flower essence component is very subtle, the floral essential oil is highly concentrated and the floral alcohol extract is mid range resulting in a versatile, full spectrum, gentle and effective new botanical product.

    Flower Essence Usage:

    Due to the energetic nature of flower essences, it is important to not let the glass dropper touch anything other than the flower essence itself in order to keep the essence as potent as possible. Flower essences have an extremely high level of safety and can be used by people of all ages without concern. Flower essences are great for animals too.

    Internally: 1-2 drops on the tongue, four times a day or as desired. They can also be added to spring water and sipped on throughout the day.

    Externally: Flower essences can be applied topically to areas of the body, such as the acupuncture or marma points. A few drops can also be added to baths, massage oil, body care products, clearing/room spray (spring water and essential oil blend), and numerous other ways.

    Flower Essence Tincture Usage:

    FlorAlchemy's Flower Essence Tinctures are designed to address body, mind and spirit by way of adjusting the dose depending on what you would like to address.

    To address physical health and well-being primarily, our Lavender Flower Essence Tincture can be used orally 30-40 drops, 2-3 times per day.

    To address emotional, mental and spiritual health, one can use our Lavender Flower Essence Tincture orally 1-2 drops, 3-4 times per day.

    FlorAlchemy's Flower Essence Tinctures taste great and contain no sweeteners. If the taste of the tincture is too strong however, they can be added to a little spring water. It is important to not let the glass dropper touch anything besides the contents of the tincture in order to keep the energetics of the Lavender Flower Essence Tincture clear and potent.

    Sara Crow L.Ac is our licensed practitioner on staff whom formulated these wonderful essences. Sara is a licensed acupuncturist, an herbalist, nutritionist, aromatherapist as well as a flower essence practitioner. She is available for personal consultations and may be contacted here.

    Our flower essences are made via sun infusion. We only used the sun method not the boiling method. Our flower essences are never heated.

    A flower essence is the vibrational imprint of a flower that has been transferred and stabilized in water. They have no scent or flavor. Flower essences can help us recognize, resolve, or release different conditioned ways of perceiving the world and can help us experience greater well-being and harmony in our lives. A tincture is an alcoholic extract of the flowers of a plant. It has a flavor of the plant that was used in the process. Both are used in similar ways. You can put them into a glass of water or drop them directly onto the tongue.

    One can bring the alcohol content down to less than .05% per 1/2 bottle through dilution.

    To prepare your own dosage bottle: filled a 1/2 oz dropper bottle with 50% red shiso vinegar and 50% spring water. Add 2 drops of each flower essence desired.

    Take 1-2 drops four times a day.

    Insence & Resins

    Using the Electric Incense Burner

    Using the electric incense burner is easy. Simply plug the burner in and turn it on to the desired heat. Remove the lid with tongs and place a foil cup with your desired incense inside the burner. Replace the lid and enjoy. Once you are done burning the incense, turn off the burner. For more details on the burner, visit the electric incense burner page here or watch our video below.

    Using the Bowl Burner

    To burn the resins you will need incense charcoal and a bowl to burn it in or our new elctric incense burner.

    Here is our available incense charcoal - We also have a bowl burner and white ash to fill the bowl.

    Light one end of the charcoal to get it started, and set it in the bowl burner. You can put a bit of the ash over the hot ember for a little insulation. Then, break up a small amount of the resin and sprinkle it on the hot charcoal.

    Here is a short video showing how to burn the resin as well.

    The biggest difference is that this course is brand new and produced in video format. The general flow and teachings of the course are the same as the first version but it's more dynamic than the original. The videos can be watched online (on any type of device) and also can be downloaded to your computer. We also have the audio version of these new classes in case you prefer to listen on the go.

    There are four question and answer sessions and two new bonus classes with this version of the course as well.

    The main difference between Pharmacy of Flowers and the two certification courses is the depth and detail of the information, as well as how that information is used. The Pharmacy of Flowers course is a perfect introduction for anyone. It covers the safe and effective use of essential oils in a home setting. The certification courses prepare a person to use aromatherapy to help other people, and contain information about more complex topics such as biology and biochemistry.

    Shipping Information

    We do ship internationally, and the pricing and time depends on the country and the quantity of items you are purchasing.

    We ship USPS Priority International which is fine for either street addresses or PO Boxes.

    You can get a shipping estimate by entering the desired items in your cart, click checkout at the upper right hand corner, then changing the country and postal code under Estimate Tax and Shipping.

    We understand that our international shipping rates may seem high. Unfortunately, we can only ship internationally via services that provide us with both insurance and tracking capabilities. The lowest cost method of shipping that we can do with these features is generally Priority Mail. We understand that this is an expensive method, but due to the fragility and usually high value of our product, it is company policy not to use less expensive, less secure shipping methods.

    We are very sorry if this causes you inconvenience, but we are a small company and are unable to absorb the bulk of shipping charges that some online companies do in order to defray costs.

    A tracking number will be emailed to you once your order has been fulfilled. Please allow 24 hours for tracking information to show on the carrier's website. If you have any trouble or questions please contact us at 866-417-1149 or support@floracopeia.com.

    The first step in tracking your order down would be to check around your residence for any area in which the package could have been delivered. Depending on the size of the package and the type of building you live in, there are multiple places to look. If you live in a house, please check around all entry ways (front, side, and back doors). If you live in an apartment building, please check around the mail room area as well as with your neighbors and/or apartment manager, doorman, or other building associate.

    After you have done a thorough search for the package, the next step would be to contact your local Delivery Service's Office. Despite what tracking information says, the Delivery Service will sometimes have your package waiting at their warehouse or office without you knowing it.

    If you are still not able to locate your package after contacting the Office, please contact us so that we can submit an investigation claim with the Delivery Service. After a claim has been created, we will then be able to discuss the options available to you regarding your order with us.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and welcome any questions or concerns you may have. Please feel free to call or email us Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm PST at (866) 417-1149

    The free shipping option you will see and select on check out is USPS Priority Mail. Please note, we reserve the right to choose another option, such as UPS ground, for heavy or bulky shipments. If you place an order and select Free Shipping, and you can't receive the item via UPS or FedEx because of address restrictions, please include a message in the Gift Message section and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
