Add 2 to 3 drops of essential oil to approximately 1/8 cup of carrier oil. Mix gently. Keep tightly covered and use as required, preferably at bedtime. Keep out of direct light.

Skin test all products before using. Apply a small amount to the skin on your inner arm. Do not use if redness or irritation occurs. To stop burning, redness, itching or irritation do not add water; instead apply generous amounts of vegetable oil to the area.
