Depending on the consistency of the oils the drops per ml will vary. The essential oils are both thin and light weight or thick and heavy weight i.e. Patchouli weighs more in less space than Tea-tree.

ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION - ALWAYS DILUTE ESSENTIAL OILS WITH A CARRIER BASE

1 drop of an essential oil will not go far, by using a vegetable oil the essential oil will cover a larger area as well as reducing the risk of any sensitivities.
