This vegetable mixture is an emulsifier (EOE) that helps to create a more even consistency between an essential oil and water combination. Applications are vast, ranging from body, facial, and pillow sprays to diffusing heavy essential oils. Does not contain alcohol, polysorbate, or other chemicals so it's safe to use with sensitive skin. The suggested use is 2 drops of emulsifier with 2 drops of essential oil and 1 ounce of water. EOE is in a concentrate form.
What is emulsion? Emulsion is enabling the mixture of two liquids that do not normally mix. Essential oils and water, for example, do not mix naturally. When adding essential oils to water, the mixture separates, and the essential oils float to the top. Adding an emulsifier, however, enables the droplets of essential oil to remain dispersed throughout the water.
Why should I use an emulsifier with my essential oils? Most essential oil sprays (such as body sprays, air freshener sprays, pillow sprays, perfumes, etc.) use water as a base. Because essential oils naturally separate from water, they float to the top, requiring constant shaking to disperse the oils throughout the water before spraying. Even with shaking, the oils quickly separate from the water, and each spray of the bottle may contain a different ratio of essential oil and water. Adding an emulsifier, however, allows the essential oil to be dispersed equally throughout the water in your essential oil spray. This allows each spray from the bottle to contain the same ratio of essential oils and water, ensuring that the intended benefits of the essential oils are the same.
