When using essential oils it is important to buy only high quality, 100% pure essential oils. Also remember that they are highly concentrated. Essential oils should not be added directly to water or the skin, first they must be diluted with carrier oils.
A carrier oil, like jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil, helps to dilute the oil so it can be applied to the skin with less risk of skin irritation. Read more about the benefits of diluting essential oils.
