First rule of diluting essential oils, NEVER DILUTE IN WATER IN CASE OF SKINCARE.Reason being, essential oils are drawn towards fats and mix well with other oils. If a water solution is applied on the skin, then the skin membrane will absorb all the natural oil as the water evaporates, which is basically applying pure essential oil directly onto the skin, which can result in burning sensation, irritation, redness etc.
It is highly advised to dilute essential oils with oil-based carriers. Try Vedic Bloom’s carrier oils for best results.
30ML = 1 OUNCE
6 Tablespoons = 1 OUNCE
2 Tablespoons = 1 OUNCE
We always recommend to starting with a lower dilution & adding more when needed
Recommended: Start with less dilution and add more when needed Standard dilution ratios are: 1%, 2% or 3%.
Elaborately, 1% dilution means 5-6 drops of essential oil, 2% means 10-12 drops of essential oil, and 3% means 15-18 drops of essential oil. These percentages are meant to be diluted in 30ml or 1oz of carrier oil.
In 60ml or 2oz of carrier oil, diluting 1% means 10-12 drops of essential oil, 2% means 20-24 drops of essential oil, and 3% means 30-36 drops of essential oil.DOWNLOAD THE DILUTION CHART
