A: Dark amber¬†glass bottles provide the best protection from light sources that may damage the oil’s sensitive nature over a period of time.¬†The attention and care that goes along with providing a premium brand cannot be compromised for the sake of cost savings and profiteering. Translucent plastic bottles may be easier to ship and handle but the damaging exposure to plastic and harmful light can taint the product leaving it ineffective.
