Application Suggestions (See Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Topical: Dilute with a carrier oil, unscented lotion or unscented cream and apply on area of concern or as desired. Consider using a roll-on applicator for ease of application of prediluted oil. To avoid skin irritation risk due to Ylang Ylang, the maximum dilution should be 4% Citrus Quench and 96% carrier.
Caution: To avoid photosensitization risk due to Grapefruit and Lemon, maximum diultion is 24% Citrus Quench to 76% carrier.
Citrus Quench can be applied as perfume. This works well in a roll-on applicator with the carrier oil of your choice.
Inhalation: Diffuse or use a personal Nasal Inhaler
Internal: No suggestions.
1. This is one of my favorite oils to diffuse, and I also make a hand sanitizer with aloe vera and Citrus Quench.
Linda's Favorite Hand Sanitizer Gel
2 oz spray or flip-top bottle (60 ml)
54 ml pure aloe gel
6 ml essential oils - there are about 30 drops per ml. (Citrus Quench is our favorite blend)
1 drop GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract) optional
(Refrigerate when not in use to increase shelf life)
*If you feel to add alcohol, Vodka works well, but Everclear does not, as the proof is too high and causes clumping issues with the aloe vera.
2. We got a new RV that smelled very toxic (new man-made materials). We only had it a week before our trip, and I felt desperate to do what I could to deal with the off-gassing. I diffused Purify 24/7 until I ran out, and then I diffused Citrus Quench, which is one of our family's favorites. This seemed to help a lot. I continued to diffuse Citrus Quench everytime we stopped and set up the RV. - Leigh
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. 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. Tisserand suggests: "With essential oils, fatty oil has been suggested as an appropriate first aid treatment, though the advantage of saline [eyewash] is that the eyes can be continually flushed, and this is less easy with fatty oil.” We are not aware of a case where essential oil in the eyes caused permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your health care provider.
