Hi Aaron, and welcome to the forum. Some oils can be applied directly to the skin without causing reactions (e.g. lavender), but it is always best to test a very small amount first.

A basic concept relative to essential oils is that a little goes a long way. Adding a small percentage of eos to carrier oil(s) works very well. As an example, a 1% dilution of helichrysum has been shown to work wonders in treating old scar tissue.
