Getting to know your Essential Oils
What are Carrier Oils?
Carrier Oils don’t receive much attention because in themselves, they do not provide the therapeutic constituents that Essential Oils contain. However, Carrier Oils are an indispensable companion when applying Essential Oils topically.
Carrier oils are naturally derived from vegetarian sources and have a neutral smell. They aren’t volatile like essential oils (they do not evaporate quickly), which makes them an excellent medium for dilution and application.
Common choices for Carrier Oils:
- Grapeseed Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Olive Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Shea Butter
- Cocoa Butter
