Add 5-15 drops of truDEFENSE to water and diffuse. Do not apply to the skin without proper dilution.
Advanced Use Directions
Adults: The essential oils in this blend are very hot oils and may burn the skin (other than the bottoms of the feet) if not diluted properly. Apply 1 drop to the bottoms of the feet diluted or undiluted. For use on areas other than the bottoms of the feet, apply a carrier oil such as olive oil (never water) to dilute the oils and soothe any irritation. We recommend 1 drop of truDEFENSE, to at least 4 drops of carrier oil. If excessive tingling or discomfort occurs, simply apply more carrier oil to dilute the oils and soothe any irritation.
Children: In a dark glass container, combine 3-6 drops of truDEFENSE with 1 ounce (6 tsp) carrier oil and mix well. Apply a few drops of this mixture to the child’s chest, back, or bottoms of feet. Not recommended for infants.

HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL
ONLY IN ROLL-ON BLEND
Sunflower seed oil has been formulated into this blend for two purposes. 1) Sunflower oil absorbs quickly into the skin and does not evaporate like essential oils do – aiding in the absorption of the blend into the bloodstream. 2) Clove and cinnamon oils are very “hot” oils that can irritate the skin if not diluted. Sunflower oil is used as a light carrier oil to dilute these hot oils down so they may be used safely on the skin. Those with sensitive skin may dilute this blend further by applying a layer of any carrier oil to the surface of the skin before and after the application of truDEFENSE (if used on areas other than the bottoms of the feet).
