For cutaneous use, the dilution of essential oils in a vegetable oil will vary according to the use and the targeted organ. It is traditionally accepted to use the following dilutions:

  • 1% essential oil: Cosmetic action (skin care)
  • 3% essential oil: Restorative action of the skin (stretch marks, …)
  • 5% essential oil: Action on the nervous system (stress, anxiety, sleep)
  • 7% essential oil: Circulatory action (heavy legs)
  • 10% essential oil: Action on muscles and joints dilution for irritating essential oils (Chinese cinnamon)
  • 15% essential oil: Action sport and competition
  • 20% essential oil: Dilution for dermocaustic essential oils (sweet orange, common oregano, wintergreen, …)
  • 30% essential oil: Very powerful local action
  • From 50% to 100% essential oil: Therapeutic action (time-limited use)
The 4 rules of formulation:
  • Identify the therapeutic properties sought (what is my need?)
  • Select essential oils recognized for the desired effects (which essential oils to select?)
  • Choose a synergistic vegetable oil
  • Determine the concentration needed to optimize the desired effect
