In a bottle, mix 10 to 20 drops of essential oil per ounce of alcohol and apply to the affected area. Do not use oils that are caustic or sensitizing. The use of rubbing alcohol is fine, but vodka is a much better carrier for this application. If sensitivities occur reduce the amount of essential oil or discontinue use. Shake well before every application.
Liniment is one of the many methods of using essential oils.
