Always dilute all of these essential oils with a carrier oil before applying to your skin. It is a great idea to do a small test patch on your skin to test how much to dilute the essential oil down.  Normally a few drops of an essential oil mixed with a carrier oil is a good guide.

Use topically 2-5 times per day – Apply 2-4 drops mixed with a carrier oil.

Carrier oil options are: Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Peanut Oil, Pecan Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sesame Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Jojoba

Most carrier oils have a faintly sweet, nutty aroma but it it has a strong, bitter aroma it has probably gone rancid and should not be used.
