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.
