How is my credit card handled?
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on our website, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). When Credit Card details are collected, we simply pass them on in order to be processed as required. We never permanently store complete Credit Card details. As an example, if you select the “Credit Card” option on the checkout page, you will be able to enter your credit card details directly through our website. When you submit this information the details are sent and processed by Shopify and PayPal.
Australian Oils of Nature uses the Shopify payment Gateway for its online credit card transactions. We conducted a lot of research when building this website and found Shopify and PayPal to be the most trusted and most secure form of collecting online payments.

Can you ingest these essential oils?
Our oils are all 100% pure and untouched, however, the jury is still out on whether essential oils can be safely ingested. As a general rule (and certainly our recommendation) is that no essential oils should be ingested without advice from a medical / clinical professional.
Essential oils are profoundly powerful, which makes them capable of both great good and great harm. One of the main concerns is the effect it can have on our natural gut flora which may have other impacts on our health, in some cases worse than what we were trying to fix in the first place. Studies are continuing as more people take an interest in natural alternatives, but there is not enough information available yet to support the endorsement of internal use. Certainly not trying to scare you off ingesting them, it’s just that we can’t legally or responsibly promote it with the limited evidence available at the moment. There are lots of people using them this way, some with amazing results, but there is also very limited evidence about side effects or long term usage risks. So to summarise…. Our official recommendation is that no essential oils should be ingested without proper medical consultation.
Use your own best judgement and if you do decide to use the products in this way, my advice would be to try a small amount first…. they are very potent in pure form.
Are the oils therapeutic grade?
There is no such thing as ‘therapeutic grade’ in measuring essential oil quality or purity. It is used by some of the big marketing companies as a sales pitch, but there is no standard by which they are measured.
All our oils are 100% pure and natural, nothing added or taken away…. just as nature intended.
