Propper dilution of essential oils is incredibly important, when it comes to using essential oils topically. Learning about dilution and safe ratios is how we can use essential oils both effectively, and safely, helping us avoid any issues that can arise by applying essential oils “neat” to the skin. Neat application, as well as the “raindrop method” used by some, is when you apply essential oils directly to the skin, without diluting them properly first.
I highly suggest against neat application, as well as the raindrop method, and will explain some common skin issues that can occur, if proper dilution methods are not used, in my next post.
Below, I have included a handy chart for suggestions on safe dilution ratios. CLICK HERE for my next post: EO Safety- Common Skin Issues that can Pop Up with Topical EO Use
