Post Help! I added too high a concentration of EO's, how to fix?
HELP! I made my own antiaging facial serum (in a base oil of 20% Rosehip seed oil and 80% grape seed oil). I had read I should keep the concentration of EO's at 3 to 5%, not realizing this was supposed to be the TOTAL EO concentration. So now I realize I need to add A lot more base oil to bring the concentration down, can anyone help me figure out how much more to add? THANKS!

Here is the recipe I used:
(In a 15 ml violet bottle with pump)

32 drops Frankincense (5%)
33 drops helichrysum (5%)
20 drops Neroli (3%)
31 drops carrot seed oil (5%)
32 drops sea buckthorn (5%)
19 drops patchouli (3%)

Hi. Perhaps the easiest solution is to purchase a 100 ml violet bottle with pump. That will reduce the percentage of EO's by more than one-sixth, or a bit more than 4% total.

Pour the contents of your 15 ml bottle into the large one, and then fill it with carrier oil(s).

Thank you so much! This works out perfectly because I have 100 mL bottle with the pump I was going to use for hand sanitizer :D
