  1. Unfortunately essential oils do not have a strong enough antimicrobial action on their own to preserve creams and lotions that are water based. Many oils will help but you also need a preservative too.

  2. Thank you very much for this information. I was just wondering, if you add (real) essential oils to your creams, would’n t they act as a preservative as well as they have considerable antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
