Why do we need to dilute the oils when using topically?

Diluting oils in a carrier oil is an excellent way to minimize a sensitivity to the oils, some oils are stronger than others and it may only take a drop of oil  to obtain the desired effect, by using a carrier it may make the oil go much farther.  The oils by themselves evaporate very quickly, by also incorporating a carrier oil it slows down the evaporation, giving the body more time to absorb and in some cases expedite the therapeutic desired effect.
