We always recommend diluting essential oils with a carrier oil like Apricot Oil when applied topically on the skin.  Benefits of safe dilution include:

  • Increased absorption into the skin

Essential oils are highly volatile substances.  If applied directly to the skin, a portion of the oil will not be absorbed due to evaporation.  Carrier oils prevent essential oils from evaporating while on the skin, which maximizes absorption time.

  • Prevention of skin irritation or sensitivity to the Essential Oil

Depending on your skin sensitivity, you may experience skin irritation when applying essential oils topically.  Proper dilution reduces the likelihood of skin irritation when an oil is used topically.  Continued use of an essential oil that has not been diluted properly can lead to a developed sensitivity to the oil.  Even if an oil is not causing a reaction when applied undiluted, irreversible damage may occur through repeated exposure.

  • Maximizes the effectiveness of the Essential Oil

Essential oils are so pure and potent, they are intended to be diluted.  Contrary to popular belief, using an oil undiluted does not necessarily mean you will receive better results.  Unless you are using an undiluted oil under the supervision of a trained professional, you will receive maximum benefits from an oil if it is diluted appropriately.  You will also get more applications out of one bottle if you dilute the essential oil when applying topically.

Absorbs so well! Love apricot oil!
Love, love, love this oil! It's so smooth, absorbs really well, and is not greasy. I use this in several of my skin care products.

I like the consistency of this more than fractionated coconut oil. It is a bit thicker and so it doesn't splash out of the bottle like the other does. I find it absorbed well and is great as a body lotion with a few drops of essential oil.

Subtle order soaks easily into the skin with little residue. I think it's a better carrier oil than coconut.

Apricot Oil
I have used the Apricot Oil to dilute custom fragrances for body and hair. It is a light oil that works well with dry skin and hair. I will definitely purchase it again!

It is a nice oil, but previously I used jojoba oil as a carrier oil and I like that better I think, it is almost to early to tell

Greasy even hours after application
I selected this oil to try because the reviews said it moisturizes well and is non-greasy. I found it to moisturize well with a very light scent, but it has remained greasy on arms and legs hours after application. I'm disappointed in this one.
