Dilution: Add 1 drop Ylang Ylang, 2 drops Sandalwood, and 2 drops Bergamot in two teaspoons (10 mL) carrier oil for a romantic, sensual massage blend. Because of possible skin sensitization, we recommend a maximum dilution of 0.8% for topical applications.
Diffusion: Diffuse Ylang Ylang to help calm the frazzled mind. A drop or two in the diffuser should be sufficient as the scent is powerful and heady.
