We recommend diffusing these oils in one of your favorite Radha Beauty diffusers or taking it a step further to using the oils in a sensual massage. Please keep in mind the potency of the oils may cause irritation if applied directly to your skin. Be sure to dilute any essential oils in a carrier base such as Fractionated Coconut, Argan, Jojoba or Rosehip oil. Use a diluted mixture of 2 drops of carrier oil to every 1 drop of essential oil, and you’re all set. Your mixture can be applied, ready for a relaxing and invigorating massage!
