Essential Oils- Dilution Hack!

Essential oils need to be diluted for safe use! I have a stock of all my favorite oils in My medicine cabinet. But I found that each time I wanted to use one, I was struggling to dilute it on the fly for safe use. So I came up with this idea. I made a small container of carrier oil with a dropper.

Each time you want to use one of your oils, you just squeeze out one dropper full of carrier oil into your palm followed by one drop of the oil do you want to use.

My dropper squeezes out 1.3ml. Therefore, if you do two droppers + 1 drop of essential oil, you have a 2% solution. If you do one dropper and one drop of essential oil, you have a 2% solution.

Remember, kids should not have anything stronger than 1%! So you’d have to double dilute for kids!
