Your trust and confidence is very important to us. As part of our S.A.A.F.E. Promise™ to you, we provide FAMES (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) test results from a verified third party, independent lab for each one of our essential oil products.
FAMES tests verify purity and quality of the oils we sell, so you can be sure you’re using the highest quality oils available on the market today.

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

I have loved the Almond Oil...as a carrier oil for other oils, or just directly for my skin. I've read that it works great for dark eye circles and eye area, so I'm using it mostly for that. So far it does seem to be helping, so I'm encouraged. Just got it though, we'll see how we do over the next months!
I've only used the Almond oil a couple of times, so far, but I am very pleased with it! And I really love RMO essential oils! I have changed the way I do a lot of things. I make all my own DIY hand wipes, personal wipes and bathroom and toilet cleaning wipes, room sprays, etc. using your products!
