Certified Organic Backhousia Citriodora (Lemon Myrtle) Leaf Oil.
Add 3-4 drops to the diffuser of your choice.
Dilute essential oils with Carrier Oils to protect your skin and for longer lasting scents. Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be patch tested on skin prior to use. If you are using a phototoxic essential oil, be careful to avoid sunlight and tanning beds for 12 hours after use.
Note: 20 drops of essential oil is equal to approximately 1ml. 1 drop of essential oil added to a 5ml teaspoon of carrier oil equals approximately 1% dilution.
We recommend the following dilutions:
- Face, body and massage oils: 1-5%
- Perfume: 10-15%
