Pure essential oils are very potent plant based products. Because we do not offer each oil or blend prediluted, we recommend that our essential oils be diluted before applying them to the skin. We recommend this so that you can get the same wonderful benefits of our essential oils and get more value out of your bottle.
Since every essential oil, cold pressed extract, absolute, and CO2 offers a different chemistry and set of safety standards it is important to know the dilution rate for each oil. Every oil is as unique as you are!
We offer safety based information on each of our product pages with respect to what method of use to utilize and in many cases a dilution rate for that oil. For any essential oil we do not have one listed for, please reference Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young's Essential Oil Safety 2nd E. If you don't have a copy of this amazing book, you can always ask us using the "Ask an aromatherapist."
We do have a few dilution charts here that you can download/print. Click on the image at the bottom for those charts.
