How to use Essential Oils for Natural Skin Care Recipes, best essential oils for skin care
When it comes to using essential oils in homemade natural bath and body products there's one saying that means a lot... Less is Best. Just because these little miracle oils are loaded with health benefits doesn't mean the more the better.
These are highly concentrated formulas that must be used with care and with plenty of knowledge. Some shouldn't be used on pregnant women. Some need to be avoided if you have certain health concerns. You must always do your research on a particular oil you wish to use to find out if there are any precautions or advisories.

Below are some great tips and advice when using essential oils in your skin care recipes and blends.
When using EOs in skin care blends, less is best! Normal dilution" is 2.5%, or 15 drops essential oil to one ounce ( 2 tablespoons) of carrier oil. Read all about using carrier oils in skin care recipes.
How much Essential oils to use in homemade skin care recipes
The above is a general guideline. Some EOs must be used in lesser amounts. Some you can use in generous amount. But no more then 15 drops per 2 tablespoons in a guideline that is widely used. Always read the bottle for suggested use.
Precautions when using Essential Oils:
  • Please remember that almost no essential oil should be applied undiluted to the skin. They should be diluted with a carrier oil, cream or water depending on your skin care recipe or product.
  • Always do a patch test before trying your homemade recipe on your skin. Test for skin sensitivity by doing a patch test. Put a little bit of diluted oil in the bend of your elbow and wait 24 hours to see if itching or redness develop
  • Be cautious about putting essential oils on your skin, particularly citrus oils. They are highly concentrated and can cause serious reactions
  • Store your essential oils away from heat and light. Refrigerate all vegetable oils.. Essential oils don't last forever - a maximum of two years usually. Keep your oils in bottles with tightly closed lids and out of direct light.
  • Particular care must be taken when using essential oils on the young, especially babies, pregnant women and the elderly. The very young and the elderly are probably more likely to be sensitive to essential oils.
