WHAT IS THE RIGHT DOSAGE OF ESSENTIAL OILS?

Leave with drops

Because recommended dosages for essential oils vary greatly depending on the plant being used. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. If making your own oil, you should thoroughly research safe dosages for your specific variety. 

In general, essential oils should be diluted in another substance (water or oil) at a concentration of no more than 3-5%. It means that, you would add three drops of an essential oil to one teaspoon of water. 

Each inividual can make a patch test to oneself in order to determine a dosage that’s right for you. This involves applying a drop of oil to an innocuous part of your body — often the inner forearm — and covering it with a bandage for up to 24 hours. If any irritation occurs, remove the bandage and wash the affected area thoroughly. 

Importance of Right Dosage

Although essential oils come from nature and have been used for centuries, they’re not without risk. Improper use can cause serious adverse reactions or even poisoning, so they must be used and stored according to manufacturers’ specifications. 

Essential oils should be kept away from children and pets, whose bodies often can’t tolerate the same dosages as an adult. In addition, anyone who is pregnant should consult a doctor before using essential oils. 

Sensitivity to an essential oil can cause responses in the skin, digestive system, respiratory system, and other areas of the body.

Sensitivity  Signs to an Essential Oil

Signs of an essential oil sensitivity or allergic reaction include:

  • Pain, swelling, or tenderness in the skin
  • Skin irritation (such as itching, rash, or hives)
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Stomach upset

In most cases, it is best to start with a single drop and slowly increase the amount over time.

The amount of essential oil you use will depend greatly on your own personal health status and your level of experience with essential oils. To remain within the parameters of safe usage, always consider the advice of your healthcare provider before using essential oils. When using an essential oil, always follow the proper usage guidelines to help you prevent overwhelming the body with incorrect essential oil levels.

Aromatherapy Use

If you’re using a water-based diffuser, it’s generally recommended to use 1–10 drops of oil per diffusion period. Higher drop amounts are appropriate for larger areas, like big rooms or outdoor spaces. Start with short diffusion periods (15–20 minutes), and then increase the time as needed to achieve the desired benefits.

Use of Essential Oils On the Skin

Because essential oils are a lipid-soluble substance, they can easily penetrate the skin.

Essential oils are useful for promoting healthy-looking skin, creating a relaxing massage, and more, but it’s important to follow safety guidelines to ensure proper use. Once you discover how each oil reacts with your body, you can determine how to safely and effectively enjoy the topical benefits each oil has to offer.

Start with the lowest possible dose (one to two drops), and then increase the dose as necessary to achieve the desired benefit. A topical dose can be repeated every four to six hours as needed. If you’re trying an oil for the first time, consider diluting it with a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil before application to see how your skin responds. Because every individual is unique, the dose will vary for each individual based on size, age, and overall health status.

Dilution actually makes for better absorption into the skin—extending the benefits for even longer. By diluting an essential oil with a carrier oil, you slow the rate of evaporation, enhance absorption into the skin, and protect against sensitive or delicate skin.

Internal Use

Because our bodies are designed to metabolize and process compounds found in nature, we are already equipped to metabolize essential oils. Essential oils are merely high concentrations of natural compounds—the parts that give plants their taste and smell. While some essential oils are never appropriate for internal consumption, plenty of oils can be safely taken internally and processed by the body.

When using essential oils internally, it’s important to regard them with as much precaution as any other supplement. Start with the lowest possible dose (one to two drops), and then increase the dose as needed.

It’s better to take a smaller dose, which can be repeated every four to six hours as needed. In total, typically no more than 20 drops, divided into doses, should be consumed in a 24-hour period. The maximum dose may be lower or higher for some oils. A lower daily dose is recommended for extended internal use. Remember, some essential oils are not intended for internal usage—this is why it’s of vital importance to read all labels before consuming.

Therefore, if all the above written is understandable, don’t hesitate to get acquainted with our shop offers of different all  natural essential oils and diffusers.
