A note of Caution:
Let me tell my dear friends, that if you wish to use any of these essential oils you must first consult a licensed professional because these oils are said to be quite strong in nature than the rest of the oils. And if you are using on your own then always remember to dilute them. Whenever you go to buy these essential oils, it is a must that you should read the label and check out whether they are pre-diluted or not. However you can add some of the effective carrier oils to these essential oils if you want them to be diluted. Carrier oils include jojoba oil, carrot oil, almond oil, avocado oil, hazelnut.
