In the case of German Chamomile CO2, Matricine is maintained in the extraction process where it is lost when steam distilled. Matricine is one of the components most sought after for sensitive, dry, or reddened skin.

You can replace the carrier oils with those you prefer however I find that the carrier oils I chose really help with the intended purpose of each recipe.  See recipe options for all skin types at the bottom.

    1. That is correct, Sunny. In case you are curious about how to go about getting such a low dilution: Using 1-2 drops of essential oil per 1 ounce of a carrier oil would leave you with a dilution of 0.1%-0.2%. I hope this helps!

  1. Hi i am having combination skin where my Tzone is oily than my cheek and i tend to have acne near chin during menses or if i were consipate. I am near age 40 and found that my skin started to look dull and less firm with wrinkle seen near eyes and forehead. Any recipe you would suggest for me? Fyi, i am a nursing mom of 10months old baby. Thanks!
