CARRIER OILS FOR ESSENTIAL OILS | WHAT ARE CARRIER OILS? | HOW TO USE CARRIER OILS?
Carrier Oils are nothing mysterious. In fact, Carrier Oils are simply vegetable oils derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually the seed, nut, or kernels. Carrier Oils also have their own different therapeutic properties, and so the Carrier Oil used depends on your purpose.
Essentials Oils must be diluted in Carrier Oils if you are applying Essentials Oils to your skin, which is called Topical Application. Read why we have to dilute Essential Oils in Carrier Oils for application.
