I am often asked about dilution. Because of the potency and purity of these oils, dilution will be necessary this is great as it means your oils will last longer and be able to be applied to your skin.
Different oils have a warming or cooling effects on the skins such as oregano, or peppermint. This can feel like a burning sensation on sensitive skin so always dilute and test before applying. Whereas other oils such as Lavender are more soothing to the skin, and can be used with little or no dilution depending on age, and area of the body.
Other things to consider with oil blends are the sun sensitive oils (Citrus) that can amplify the effects of the sun and cause burning if used on the skin before sun expose.
Please keep in mind these charts are only a guideline to follow. When counting drops I tend to get that stubborn drop that won’t come out and then 2 drops come out It’s OK if your blend does not have the exact drops the chart is recommending (remember it is a guideline). Essential oil drops are really an inaccurate measure because the viscosity differs in oils and not all droppers used are the exact same, meaning drops are not a uniform measurement. So again, these are guidelines.
