There are rules of the trade when using Essential Oils. They should always be diluted with a carrier oil. There are many such as sweet almond oil, grape-seed, rose hip or soybean etc. You cannot use an Essential Oil in its pure form. Mixing 3 or 4 oils together with a carrier oil can be pure heaven!
Investing in an Aromatic Book or just searching for different scents and their qualities can prove most therapeutic when put to use, quite easily!
