How to Determine How Much Essential Oil to Use

Are you confused on how much essential oil you need to use for a particular recipe?  Then I would recommend reading the article, How to Determine How Much Essential Oil to Use by DiDill, eHow Member.

In this article, the author gives good tips diluting your essential oils with a carrier oil and more. Pay particular attention to the tips and warnings section on how much should be actually used because it can be confusing trying to figure out how much to use, particularly because they may be sold in ounces, millimeters or by the pound. It's difficult because different writers use different measurements when describing formulas for blending Essential Oils. 

And it is also important to find out if certain essential oils should not be used for certain people.  That would be best to consult an aromatherapist or a good aromatherapy book on essential oils.
