The use of essential oils should be made according to the type of oil in question, but none of the recommendations is a substitute for the test that should be done on you. Everyone has different ways of reacting on contact with oils.
Essential oils are extremely concentrated products and therefore require some wisdom. Despite some recommendations for the quantities we make, you should test with yourself and see if the dilution is appropriate. And so see if you can increase the concentration or have to increase the dilution.
