Always ensure that you use essential oils safely by diluting them in a carrier oil before applying them to the skin, and perform a patch test to check for sensitivities. If you have specific health concerns or conditions, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before using essential oils.


Here's a guide on how to perform a patch test


  1. Select a Carrier Oil: Begin by choosing a mild, skin-friendly carrier oil such as coconut, jojoba, or sweet almond oil. Carrier oils help dilute the essential oil to minimize the risk of irritation.

  2. Dilute the Essential Oil: Mix a small amount of the essential oil with the carrier oil. A good starting ratio is 1 drop of essential oil to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil, creating a 1% dilution, which is generally safe for most adults, elderly, and kids. For very sensitive skin, you might want to start with a more diluted mix, such as 1 drop of essential oil in 2 teaspoons of carrier oil (0.5% dilution).

  3. Choose a Test Spot: Select a small, discreet area of skin to apply the oil. The inside of your forearm or the back of your wrist are good choices, as the skin is relatively sensitive and easily observed for reactions.

  4. Apply the Mixture: Use a cotton swab or a clean fingertip to apply a small amount of the diluted essential oil to the chosen spot.

  5. Cover the Spot: Optionally, you can cover the test spot with a bandage or a piece of gauze to keep the area undisturbed.

  6. Wait: Leave the oil on your skin for at least 24 hours, unless you start to feel irritation sooner. If you experience any discomfort, such as itching, redness, swelling, or burning, remove the oil immediately with a carrier oil, followed by soap and water. Using a carrier oil first helps to lift the essential oil off the skin more effectively than soap and water alone.

  7. Observe: After 24 hours, check the area for any signs of irritation or allergic reaction. If your skin looks clear and feels fine, it's likely safe to use the oil more broadly.
