Synergies | Recipes - Refreshing Basil & Citrus Massage Oil
- 10 ml Basil essential oil (Ocimum basilicum)
- 20 ml Sweet Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis)
- 5 ml Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon)
- 60 ml Jojoba carrier oil (Simmondsia chinensis)
How to mix: Combine all ingredients in a dark glass bottle. Shake gently to blend the oils together. Store the mixture in a cool, dark place.
Caution: When using essential oils, it is crucial to always dilute them with a carrier oil or in a diffuser, as applying undiluted oils directly to the skin may cause irritation or adverse reactions.
Additionally, it is highly recommended to perform a patch test before using any essential oil for the first time.
To conduct a patch test, dilute a small amount of the essential oil in a carrier oil and apply it to a small area of your skin. Wait for 24 hours to observe any signs of redness, itching, or irritation.
If you experience any adverse reactions, discontinue use immediately and consult a healthcare professional. Remember, essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts and should be used with caution to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
