Tracy, they're using tinctures, not essential oils.

This is not a complete recipe! If you use essential oils you would need to have them either in a carrier oil or some other kind of base for dilution purposes. Water as I’m sure you know will not work as oil and water do not mix. The net result is still a direct application. There would be negative consequences of using the EOs undiluted. What would be the base and how much would you need?
