When using essential oils in perfumes, it’s important to remember to use a carrier oil to dilute the oils. This will help ensure that the essential oils are not too strong, as well as prevent any skin irritation. A good carrier oil to use is jojoba oil, as it is very mild and won’t interfere with the scent of the essential oils.
