Strong odor makes it more useful with strongly scented EO's. Use 10 to 50% dilution. Traditionally used to produce macerated oils. Olive Oil's heavy viscosity, oily texture and aroma makes it less preferred than other oils for skin care and aromatherapy applications. If not carefully used or used in a small dilution with another carrier, it may overpower a blend. When purchasing Olive Oil, be sure that you are purchasing a cold pressed, virgin oil.
