I get asked a lot of the same questions by different people so I thought I’d jot down some of the most popular frequently asked questions on this blog. Let’s start with a common one…’How many drops of essential oil should I be putting in my diffuser for the best results?’ Well, it depends on the oil. If you are diffusing Wild Orange, I recommend only using 4 drops because the scent is so bold and strong. But if you are diffusing Roman Chamomile or Sandalwood, you may need to add a couple more drops since these don’t have as strong of a scent. You can go by your own nose on this since we all have different senses of smell. Just know that a little goes a long way when you are using doTERRA’s oils! ~ ‘When making DIY roller-ball bottles of blends, how much scented oil do you use compared to the carrier oil?’ This one is easy because you can add drops as you go, looking for the scent that is right for you. I’ve actually been making a lot of these lately and I find that 7 to 9 drops of the scented oil is enough to add to the 10ml bottle filled with the carrier oil. ~ ‘Is Correct-X safe to use on chapped lips for soothing them?’ Yes, you can use this ointment safely on your lips. I have heard wonderful feedback from people on this and I’ve tried it myself. The one thing to know though is that it doesn’t taste very good so try not to lick your lips after you apply it if possible. ~ ‘Can you use the On Guard Concentrated Cleaner not diluted as a spot cleaner for wood surfaces and clothing?’ Yes, you can, but just use a tiny amount because it will foam up and if you use too much it will take a lot of water to get rid of it. Wood surfaces are porous so they soak everything right in so just use a very small amount. ~ Tomorrow I’ll continue on this topic because there are so many more questions to get to…
Have a great day! Jana
