GuruNanda Frequently Asked Questions
Have you ever smelled a flower and wished you could keep the scent forever? Have you noticed how certain scents can change your mood and take you back to your childhood? Essential oils capture that magic.
Essential oils play a critical role in protecting plants and helping them flourish, which is part of the reason why they often have powerful therapeutic properties.
When using an essential oil topically, carrier oils allow us to sufficiently dilute essential oils for their safe therapeutic use. Because essential oils are highly concentrated, powerful, and quite aromatic, it is best to mix a small quantity with a plant based oil, like our Sweet Almond or Fractionated Coconut Oil. This reduces the risk of adverse skin reactions and allows the essential oil to be more evenly distributed throughout the skin.
A typical ratio is 1 drop of essential oil to every 10 drops of carrier oil.

Fill your space with therapeutic essential oils and aromas to experience the gentle relaxation and heightened awareness. This balance of awareness and relaxation provides the perfect environment to help our bodies heal and remain healthy.
The more you use essential oils, the more you will discover their multifaceted nature. When applying topically, dilute the essential oil of your choice with a carrier oil like our fractionated coconut oil or almond oil and use them as a massage oil or body oil.
If you have sensitive skin or have never used an essential oil on your skin, we advise conducting a patch test prior to using the essential oil. Apply a small amount of diluted essential oil on to your inner arm. Watch for redness or irritation over the next 24 hours. If either occurs, do not continue to use the essential oil topically.
Certain essential oils, such as citrus oils, contain molecules that react with sunlight or UV light from tanning beds. When applying these oils topically, it is important to avoid direct sunlight for 12-48 hours.
If you are allergic to a certain food, do not use any essential oils or carrier oils that are derived from the same plant as the allergen.
Since essential oils are highly concentrated, it’s highly recommended to dilute them in a carrier oil before applying to the skin. The most common safe dilution rate is 2%. This comes out to about 6 drops of essential oil for every 1 tablespoon of carrier oil. Enjoy your essential oils safely.
