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.

Arrived as advertised. Read lots of reviews before purchasing. First time using any FCO product, so was not sure what to expect. Oil has no odor. No issues w/bottle leaking. Pump works well. Excited to purchase other products.

I have bought this FCO before. It is the best. I like that it is a pump bottle it is easier for me to use. Every thing that I have bought from Rocky Mountain Oils has been the best.
Thank you for all of your great products.

Whats the difference between using this and regular coconut oil ?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The main difference is that Fractionated coconut oil has no scent, does not stain fabrics, has an indefinite shelf life and remains a stable liquid consistency for easy blending.

Does it smell like coconut? Sadly, my family and I don't like coconut smell and taste.
A shopper on Apr 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Fractionated Coconut Oil actually does not have a scent at all. This is the reason that we do commonly use it in our blends as it does not interfere with the natural aroma of essential oils.

What is the preferred method for preparing dilutions, in advance or as needed? Does the dilution lose its essential oil potency or evaporate if made in advance in a small jar?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For adult topical application, the recommended starting ratio is 1/2 tsp of carrier oil for every 1-3 drops of essential oil. For more dilution rate click here: https://www.rockymountainoils.com/dilution-rate/

The dilution of the blends with the carrier oil does not hinder the therapeutic value of the single essential oils in the blend.

BEST ANSWER: You can definitely dilute these blends. We recommend diluting before applying topically.

I'm new to RMO and still figuring out how to best utilized the oils. I plan to diffuse, but am also interested in topical applications. I'd like to mix a couple of drops of EO with Fractionated Coconut Oil for topical application, however can you explain how to measure the Fractionated Coconut Oil (ie. 2 tspns) to then pour into a 5ml or 15ml bottle and mix with the drops of EO?
Jeanne C on Sep 7, 2018

Why isn't the large 12 oz bottle of Factuonated Coconut Oil available anymore? I don't like the little 4 0z squeeze bottle, I like the pump. Never had a problem with it. Will it be available in the future???? Very disappointed.
Michelle M on Mar 18, 2018
