Another way to go to try essential oils is to buy a few drops from a friend or an aromatherapist (+some money for her trouble) and put in a roller bottle or spray bottle with fractionated coconut oil. In the past, I have had no money for oils, but I found that I can have a few blends this way and that was the only way I could afford them. This way everyone wins and paying it forward, etc.
I find a rollerball with 6-10 drops of oil will last us about a month, even longer if its not an often used blend. For those who want to share the joy of essential oils with their friends - tell em - you buy the roller balls and fractionated oil - and I'll give you a few drops for each one. Its good too for sharing blends and trying blends that one person has and the other does not (bartering). Sharing the LOVE of essential oils.......

Proper Dilution of oils:
2-6 drops in a rollerbottle full of coconut oil for kids
10-30 drops in a rollerbottle full of coconut oil for adults
Anything more is wasteful (and who wants that?) and can lead to oil sensitivity.
