World Of Oils

Cultivating peace through natural sensory experiences

Essential oils have been utilised globally for millennia due to their potency and effect. Novenary takes great care to ethically source only the finest essential oils, regarded for their purity and quality.

We know that high-quality oils can transform a ‘pretty candle’ or ‘nice bath salts’ into a sensory experience that soothes the mind, boosts resiliency, and encourages reflection. That’s why we encourage our users to experiment with the right essential oils for their needs.

How to Store Novenary Essential Oils

Our essential oils should be stored in a cool, dry place and kept away from direct sunlight. As light can degrade the active ingredients in many essential oils, we only store ours in recyclable, light-resistant bottles.

While you do not need to keep them cold, many of our customers choose to store theirs in the refrigerator.
