Uses

Carrier oils are used to suspend and dilute essential oils so that they can be applied to the skin - either as bath or massage oils, anointing oils, lotions or as natural perfume blends. The recommended dilution rate for essential oils is 1 - 3%, (e.g. 1-3ml per 100ml of carrier oil), though some may be used in stronger dilutions. Familiarize yourself with all the oils you intend to use and take note of all cautions. If in doubt test your blend on a small area of the inner arm first. If you notice any kind of allergic reaction, stop immediately and wipe off the oil. Essential oils are very potent indeed and should never be underestimated. Allergic reactions may occur as a result of exposure to any substance - even base oils. In particular people with nut allergies should be cautious and avoid certain oils entirely.
