Application Suggestions (see Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Topical: Dilute with a carrier oil, unscented cream or lotion and apply on area of concern as desired. To avoid potential skin sensitization issues with Ylang Ylang, you will want to dilute Mother's Blend 50% or less. To avoid phototoxicity issues with Bergamot, dilute 6% or less when applying to skin that will be exposed to direct UV light.
This works well in a roll-on applicator with the carrier oil of your choice.
Inhalation: Directly inhale from the bottle, a nasal inhaler or a place a few drops on a handkerchief. Not suitable to diffuse because it has fractionated coconut oil in it.
*Jasmine Grandiflorum is an absolute from India - Premium quality from the freshest flowers. Jasmine is actually an "essence" not an essential oil. Absolutes are solvent extracted products. They are produced by a multi-step process which involves first extracting the flower (or other biomass) with a non-polar solvent such as hexane. After the hexane is evaporated, a waxy product is obtained called the concrete. The concrete is then extracted using a polar solvent such as ethanol. The polarity of ethanol allows extraction of the volatile aromatics from the concrete while leaving behind the non-polar plant waxes which don't dissolve well in ethanol. Finally, the ethanol is evaporated to leave behind the absolute, which will typically have 1-5% ethanol remaining in it and sometimes a trace of hexane, depending on the method used.
Phototoxicity Caution: To avoid phototoxicity issues with Bergamot, dilute 6% or less when applying to skin that will be exposed to direct UV light.
Skin Irritation Caution: To avoid potential skin sensitization issues with Ylang Ylang, you will want to dilute Mother's Blend 50% or less.
Avoid contact with the eye. Essential oils are lipophilic, meaning they are attracted to fat—like the membranes of your eye and skin. Essential oils are hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Wiping with carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eye. We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your doctor if necessary.
