We always recommend diluting essential oils with a carrier oil like Almond 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.
