Dilution Chart

This essential oil dilution chart is a valuable tool for safely and effectively using essential oils. It guides how to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil to ensure proper usage and avoid potential skin irritation or sensitization.

To use a dilution chart, locate the essential oil you want to use on the chart. The chart typically provides different dilution ratios based on the intended purpose or application. Common ratios include 1%, 2%, 3%, and 5%, indicating the percentage of essential oil to carrier oil.

For example, if the chart suggests a 2% dilution ratio and you want to create a massage oil, mix 2 drops of essential oil with 1 teaspoon (5 mL) of carrier oil. This ensures a safe and appropriate concentration for topical use.

It's important to note that certain essential oils may require lower dilution ratios, especially for sensitive individuals, children, or the elderly. The dilution chart will often provide specific guidelines for these cases.

Using this essential oil dilution chart, you can confidently and accurately dilute essential oils for various applications, such as massage, skincare, or personal care. It helps you strike the right balance between enjoying the benefits of essential oils while ensuring safety and skin compatibility.
