We always recommend diluting essential oils with a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO)  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.

Great for dry skin.
Fractionated coconut oil is so much easier to use then regular coconut oil. I use the fractionated on my dry skin right after a shower and NEVER have a greasy feel. Love it!

I love this carrier oil. It has no smell, has a smoothe application and doesn't leave an oily residue on the skin. My ONLY complaint is that the bottle leaks. I have to keep it on a glass coaster otherwise it will ruin whatever it sits on. Not sure if I just have a defective pump or not. This would not deter me from purchasing again. I would probably just not use the pump next time.

Great customer service!
I love the oils I've tried from this company. I recently had a problem with a leaky bottle of fractionated coconut oil, and when I contacted the company, they sent a replacement by priority mail. I highly recommend this company for both quality of products and customer service.

hi can you dilute calming and brainstorm Essence oils with Fractionated coconut oil because i want to know they are to strong for me and I want to know if you can dilute with Fractionated coconut oil and how much do you put in it?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can definitely dilute these blends. We recommend diluting before applying topically. For adult topical application, the recommended starting ratio is 1 tsp of carrier oil for every 3-4 drops of essential oil. We provide a great dilution guide on our website as well as topical information for children:
