You can only use them on your skin if they are diluted with a carrier oil like grape seed oil or jojoba oil. You can only benefit from the topical use of essential oils when they are diluted. Although it is safe to use diluted, some people still experience side effects with topical use so if you want to determine if you are allergic, use the patch test by applying a small amount of oil on your inner forearm, and if nothing happens then you are safe to use it topically.
