Most websites/blogs mention about diluting essential oils before topical application. While this is correct, it is not sufficient!
Use the guide below to get started on your DIY blending journey.
Interpreting the charts
Step 1: As per age group, please take note of the recommended and maximum dilution percentages.
Step 2: Based on the amount of carrier oil, you can find the corresponding number of essential oil drops to be used to achieve the dilution you require e.g., for 1% dilution in 30ml of carrier oil, use 8 drops of same/different essential oils.
Always perform a 24 hour period patch test at the recommended dilution levels or lesser, as per the age group to check for any allergic reaction or skin sensitivities.
While the dilution percentages work for most of our essential oils, we strongly recommend that you read the safety precautions listed for each oil before you craft the blend.
