Application Suggestions (see Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart)
Topical: Dilute with a carrier oil and apply as desired. To avoid skin irritation risk due to Ylang Ylang and/or photosensitization risk due to Grapefruit and Lemon, maximum diultion 4% Citrus Quench to 96% carrier.
Citrus Quench can be applied as perfume. This works well in a roll-on applicator with the carrier oil of your choice.
Internal: No suggestions.
1. This is one of my favorite oils to diffuse, and I also make a hand sanitizer with aloe and Citrus Quench. - Linda
Photosensitization and Irritation Caution: To avoid skin irritation risk due to Ylang Ylang and/or photosensitization risk due to Grapefruit and Lemon, maximum topical dilution is 4% Citrus Quench and 96% carrier.
Avoid contact with the eyes and other sensitive areas. Essential oils are both lipophilic and hydrophobic. Lipophilic means they are attracted to fat—like the membranes of your eyes and skin. They are also hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Applying a carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eyes or skin. We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
