It is best to dilute essential oil in a carrier oil (i.e. Sweet Almond, Grapeseed, even supermarket Olive Oil) if you intend to prepare a massage oil. Don’t use essential oils neat onto your skin. Start with 1% essential oil to 99% carrier and increase essential oil until you have desired aroma strength.
Alternatively, use only 4 drops of each oil on a tissue, in the bath or dripped onto a radiator or sink. The oils will evaporate naturally and so you can also remove the cap and place on a high shelf (away from children and pets), to diffuse fragrance into a room.
We suggest using your oil within 12 months of purchase. Some will last longer and some scents mature with age.
