Diluting Essential Oils in a carrier oil before application is an excellent way to reduce sensitive skin reactions to certain Essential Oils, but will it reduce the oils’ effectiveness? The answer may surprise you. Recent research suggests that diluting Essential Oils for topical applications not only does not reduce effectiveness but may actually have certain advantages.
Evaporation is the primary issue in topical application. One of the most important benefits of dilution is that it decreases the surface area of a substance exposed to air, which reduces the rate of evaporation. When diluted, Essential Oil chemical constituents have been shown to pass through the skin more efficiently than when applied neat (no dilution).
