Dilution ratios vary according to age. For adults 2 to 2.5% is the standard rate, whereas for children under 12 or the elderly it is 1%, or, about 1/3 that of an adult. Always seek professional advice first when blending essential oils for children under the age of 12 or the elderly.
*Drops are a general guideline only. The actual number depends on the specific essential oil viscosity, temperature and size of dropper aperture opening.
**Drams rounded up to nearest fraction
***Not practical for smaller amounts. Use tsp or Tbps.
