    Hi Kara! You can use any carrier oil to dilute an essential oil, but it’s mostly recommended that you diffuse this oil to help with allergy symptoms. When using topically, apply to the wrists.

    Hi! My father has sleep apnea and also suffers from hypersensitive nasal passages. I want to get him oil/oil blend for nighttime diffusing to help relieve his symptoms, hopefully cutting down on his snoring, and allowing him to sleep better. What suggestions do you have to help him? Thank you!
