Q. How to calculate pre-dilute essential oil for use in a recipe? 

A. If you want to know how many drops to use of a diluted oil in a bath/body recipes (never use carrier oil mixed essential oils in a diffuser), simply divide the number of full strength drops needed by the amount of dilution of the oil you are using – Rose Otto or Sandalwood in the case of the oils I have here. 

Say you need 3 drops of full strength rose or sandalwood, this is how it works: 3/.28=10.71, so you could round down to 10 or up to 11 drops from the bottle.
