No essential oil or absolute should be applied to the skin without being diluted. How are you trying to use it? If it is being added to a bath & body product, then it will be diluted by the other ingredients. Check out the recommended usage rate with the supplier.

So @DomTheDillyHoo that means you need circa 10g for a 2 pound batch ( 1 litre of oils). This may not be enough to scent the batch, so you might want to add another essential oil to boost your fragrance - something complimentary - maybe lemongrass or litsea? Add another 10 - 20g of one of those if the IFRA guidelines allow it.
