When applying essential oils topically, it’s important to dilute

Essential oils are very strong and potent.  They much more concentrated than the herbs, flowers, and fruits in their original form.  So when I use essential oils topically, I always dilute them with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut.  The roller bottle blends in this post are all designed for occasional use by a healthy adult.  Most are 5% dilutions, meaning that 5% of the blend is essential oils and 95% of the blend is carrier oil.  For the standard size 10ml roller bottles, that means 10 drops of essential oil and the rest of the 10ml bottle is filled with carrier oil (like fractionated coconut oil).

 

“Bug Repellent” Roller Bottle Recipe

Help keep mosquitoes, flies, ticks, and other bugs away with this blend of lemon eucalyptus, geranium, and lavender essential oils.

8 drops lemon eucalyptus essential oil

4 drops geranium essential oil

3 drops lavender essential oil

Then fill rest of  a 10 ml roller bottle with fractionated coconut oil.  Snap on the rollerball and shake well to mix.

To use:  apply a little to top of head, back of neck, arms, and calves/ankles.  Rub in well.  Reapply as needed.
