LINIMENT: Add to a 2 ounce squeeze bottle: 8 drops of Lavender (Spike), 5 drops of Helichrysum, 2 drops of Peppermint and 5 drops of Copaiba, then fill with Jojoba oil and shake to mix well. Apply enough of this mixture to cover the affected area and massage into the skin. (1.7% dilution)
PROBLEM SKIN: Add to a 2 ounce bottle: 4 drops of Lavender (Spike), 1 drop of Geranium Seed, 4 drops of Frankincense (Frereana) and 3 drops of Orange, then fill with distilled water and Polysorbate 20 (manufacturer's recommended amount).
