Many people turn to topical uses of essential oils for their skin-healing or pain-relieving. You can apply essential oils to where you have a localized need, or apply them topically to experience them aromatically by putting the oil on places like your palms, wrists, or neck. However, they must be applied properly. Most essential oils require dilution to prevent adverse reactions. You can easily dilute your essential oils by blending a few drops with a carrier oil such as coconut, rosehip, or jojoba oil - they carry the essential oil safely onto your skin and help you spread it over a larger surface area. It’s best to test a little bit on a small area and see how your skin responds. Keep fractionated coconut oil on hand to reduce the effects should a reaction occur.
