WHY ESSENTIAL OIL DILUTION IS IMPORTANT?

There are number of different classes of compounds in essential oils. They can be divided into two groups called hydrocarbons and oxygenated compounds. They can be further broken down into their chemical constituents: terpenes (monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and diterpenes), esters, aldehydes, ketones, alcohols, phenols, and oxides. But there’s really no need to worry about those scientific terms.

All you need to know is that the active chemical constituents found in essential oils are powerful – so powerful that they can cause some very serious health problems if not used correctly including: neuro-toxicity, mucolytic irritation, convulsions, headaches, skin burning & discoloration, dermal sensitivity, danger to pets, infants and pregnant women, preexisting condition aggravation, illness or even death when swallowed (for particular oils). This is why it is so important to use caution when handling and applying the oils.

Specifically, there are compounds found in essential oils that are toxic when ingested: boldo, calamus, camphor, cassia, horseradish, mugwort, mustard, pennyroyal, rue, sassafras,  savin, tansy, thuja, wintergreen, wormseed, and wormwood. These oils can be potentially very harmful if ingested or used improperly.

Dilution 1% 2% 3% 5% 10% 25%
Drops of EO for 1 tsp of carrier oil 1 2 3 5 10 25
Drops of EO for 2 tsp of carrier oil 2 4 6 10 20 50
Drops of EO for 3 tsp of carrier oil 3 6 9 15 30 75
Drops of EO for 4 tsp of carrier oil 4 8 12 20 40 100
Drops of EO for 5 tsp of carrier oil 5 10 15 25 50 125
Drops of EO for 6 tsp of carrier oil 6 12 18 30 60 150

 

CAUTION

While the use of essential oils is considered 100% safe, the compounds found within the plant essences are very concentrated and powerful. If ever you or a loved one ingests an oil, please do not hesitate to contact Poison Control.

Alleviate Depression and Emotional Pain

Put 2 to 3 drops of bergamot oil in your hands, rub them together to warm it up then cup your hands over your nose and mouth. Take some slow, deep breaths.

Reduce Stress and Anxiety

Use bergamot oil to alleviate nervous tension, anxiety and stress. It actually stimulates the production of relaxing, mood enhancing hormones like serotonin and dopamine. Add a few drops of bergamot oil to your diffuser or use it in an oil burner. You will quickly feel a sense of contentment and calm. After a really bad day, put about 10 drops of bergamot EO into a warm bath and take a long, relaxing soak.

Relieve or Reduce Muscle Aches and Pains

Massage about 5 drops of bergamot essential oil right into the source of your pain to get relief. It reduces nerve sensitivity at the source to dull the pain sensation. It can be used on any muscle aches, sprained muscles and headaches. Massage it into your lower back when you have muscle tension and pain there. Rub it into your temples and forehead to eliminate headaches. Try a blend with 5 drops each of bergamot, frankincense and lavender in about a tablespoon of sweet almond oil. Rubbing this blend into painful areas reduces the pain and improves your mood.
