It’s wise to assume that you will have to dilute your essential oils before using them. As a rule, keep the concentration levels of essential oils below 5%. To give you an idea of what this means in practice: diluting at 1% is equivalent to adding 6 drops of essential oil to 1 oz. of carrier oil such as sweet almond oil.
Body scrubs are very easy to make, you simply mix the ingredients together store and store them in a sterilized glass container. Sterilized plastic containers are fine as long as you use your scrub within a couple of months. Essential oils will start to break down the plastic.
Adding one or two capsules of vitamin E oil will preserve your product longer. You can even put some in small jars for gifts or retail.
