Using Essential Oils
|3 teaspoons (tsp) = 1 tablespoon (tbsp)|
|2 tablespoons (tbsp) = 1 ounce (oz)|
|6 teaspoons (tsp) = 1 ounce (oz)|
|10 milliliter (ml) = 1/3 oz.|
|15 milliliter (ml) = 1/2 oz.|
|30 milliliter (ml) = 1 oz.|
|10 milliliter (ml) = approximately 300 drops|
Generally, two drops of Essential Oil (use only Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils) should be used per tsp of Carrier Oil (but follow individual recipes if available) and it takes about 20-30ml of carrier oil for a full body massage.
Any natural carrier oil except mineral oil is fine to use when preparing a massage blend. There are lots to choose from and each has its own properties. For most applications I prefer to use a base of sweet almond oil. Jojoba and grapeseed oil may be blended to the massage oil base. For 30ml Massage oil base add 1 tsp. jojoba, 2 tsp. grapeseed and 1 tbsp of sweet almond oil.
