Hazardous Shipping Information for Essential Oils
Shipments of our products that have a flash point below 61.7 degrees Celsius (°C) but above 38.0 degrees Celsius (°C) are considered hazardous materials (Dangerous Goods, DG) when shipped via air or ocean transportation. Shipments of our products that have a flash point of 38.0 degrees Celsius (°C) or less are considered hazardous materials when shipped via any mode of transportation.
Some international countries do not accept hazardous material shipments via any mode of transportation. Any products designated as a hazardous material must be packed according to regulations and may incur higher packaging and shipping costs as well as longer shipping times. This is a US Department of Transportation policy which can incur significant fines for breaches.
Since some hazardous classes can only be shipped using specific carriers and shipping modes Down Under Enterprises reserves the right to choose the carrier & mode of transportation for hazardous shipments. To find out the flash points of the products you are purchasing, please log onto our web site and source the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) related to your product of interest. Law requires you to have a MSDS on file for any products you buy and store in your facility.
Proper Storage of Essential Oils
Essential oils have a limited shelf life. Proper storage of these oils will ensure your inventory does not prematurely deteriorate. Oils should be stored in full, tightly sealed containers and away from direct light at room temperate. For long-term storage of oils (more than 180 days) we recommend applying a nitrogen or argon layer to the headspace of your opened containers to reduce potential oxidation of your oils.
