This particular formulation of fragrance oil has been specially crafted to ensure compatibility with soaps, candles, reed diffusers, perfumes, haircare, skincare, and cosmetic preparations. Please be advised that this oil may not be suitable for use in cold air diffusers, as it is an extremely potent formulation. For that specific need, we recommend customers to select our other specially formulated fragrance oils designed for that specific application.

IFRA Guidelines for Maximum Dilution
Maximum dilution for this fragrance oil depends on the products you plan on making.
It should be noted that maximum dilutions are from a safety aspect only, based on the chemical composition of the oil. Sometimes, these are very high because all components are relatively benign. These amounts are not necessarily recommendations of how much to use in your recipe. They may smell too strong or make the item prohibitively expensive to produce. As long as you remain below the advised limits, you can be as generous or parsimonious as you like. Use more, use less. We’ll leave the creative stuff to you.
The following maximum dilutions apply based on the ingredients used, as per the International Fragrance Regulation Authority.
Directions for Use
Candles and related scented items fall under Category 12 of the IFRA safety standards. Lemon Verbena Fragrance oil has no restrictions on use for category 12. Feel free to use as much or as little as pleases your nose.
Soaps and Bathroom Fragrances
Lemon Verbena Fragrance oil lends itself well to bathroom products. Maximum dilution for soaps, shampoos, or any other IFRA category 9 product is 6.9%. This category also covers laundry pretreatment and cleaning products.
Maximum dilution for making an aerosol room spray or any other item that will be propelled using a pump is 24%.
Hand Made Perfumery
Fragrance oils make lovely additions to handmade perfumes. For cologne designed to be applied to freshly shaved skin, a maximum dilution of 0.57% is appropriate. This would apply to both Eau de Toilettes and fine fragrances. You can safely add Lemon Verbena Fragrance Oil to products for unshaved skin t a maximum dilution of 3.45%.
If you use Lemon Verbena Fragrance oil in deodorant or antiperspirant products, the maximum dilution is 3.43%. This applies to either roll-on or body spray products.
As per the IFRA regulations, the maximum safe dilution for Lemon Verbena Fragrance Oil is set at 0.86% if it is used for body creams, foot care products, insect repellents, or talcum powder. Preparations for the face have the same suggested maximum dilution.
For specialized hand creams or fragrance hand sanitizers, the maximum dilution would be 2.85%.
Lemon Verbena Fragrance Oil is not approved under IFRA safety guidelines for lip- or mouth-related products as per their categories 1 and 6.
We recommend testing a small amount before scaling up to more significant size formulations, as with all Vinevida products. These fragrance oils are intended for external use only and should not be ingested under any circumstances.
While Lemon Verbena Fragrance oil will have no therapeutic properties because it is a synthetic product, it’s a beautiful way to scent your home. Have the best time experimenting with Lemon Verbena Fragrance Oil and make your home an ever more beautiful expression of you.
