What are the Typical Essential Oil to Carrier Oil Ratios?
We advise using a 2% dilution when using essential oils topically. To achieve this dilution we advise using 10-12 drops of your chosen essential oil to 30ml of your carrier oil or body lotion.
As an average, there are 200 drops of essential oil in each 10ml bottle.
