Q.How Do I Dilute An Essential Oil, Absolute Or Extract In A Carrier Oil (Eg, Fractionated Coconut Oil)?
First thing you want to do, determine to what percent you want to dilute an essential oil, absolute, or extract.
How Do I Dilute An Essential Oil, Absolute Or Extract In A Carrier Oil (Eg, Fractionated Coconut Oil)?
If you are working with a strongly scented material, it is recommended that you dilute it to 10%, which is nine parts stable carrier oil with one-part scented material. If you need to dilute very thick extracts, absolutes, or essential oils, you should ensure that the carrier oil is pre-heated to almost the same temperature as the heated essential oil, extract, or absolute.
For example, if you are working with a very strongly scented material, you may want to dilute it to 10%, or one part scented material plus 9 parts stable carrier oil. You can use drops, milliliters, ounces, etc. as the measuring unit, e.g., one drop Tobacco Absolute, 9 drops jojoba oil.
Second step, determine how much diluted material you want.
For example, for one ounce (30 milliliters) of a 10% dilution, measure 3 milliliters of the scented material and 27 milliliters of carrier oil into a one ounce bottle.
