Dilute Properly

With essential oils, less is more. Enjoy your essential oils for longer by starting at the maximum recommended dilution rate, 6 drops per 1 oz of carrier oil. Only decrease dilution if you feel you are not experiencing the benefits of the essential oil. Never decrease dilution if you have a negative physical reaction to the oil. Download our Dilution Chart for more help diluting your oils.

Store For Longevity

Store your essentials oils in a cool, dark place like a portfolio case. For easy travel with your essential oils, check out the Eden’s Garden Essential Oil Bag. Keep oils away from sunlight, and be sure to always replace the caps tightly. Proper storage gives your essential oils a longer shelf life and keeps that precious oil working for you. If stored correctly, citrus oils usually last about 1-2 years, while woodier oils that are high in sesquiterpines can last up to 7 years! If you’re not sure how long your oil will last, contact us at with your purchase date and information on how you store your oil.

    I’ve seen it go both ways, but I definitely think Edens is correct in saying decrease. They also start off by saying “less is more.” I think people have enough common sense to figure that one out…

  • Edens Garden says...

    Hi Jordis! It would be “decrease” dilution because you are adding more essential oil than carrier oil. Thus, the essential oil would be less diluted.

  • Jordis Kessler says...

    I think someone should be editing these blogs a bit better. For example, it should read ‘increase’ and NOT ‘decrease’ when referring to concentration of essential oil per carrier oil. Some people could misunderstand very easily what you are trying to say, here.
