Carrier Oils

Carrier Oils are vegetable oils (typically extracted via expeller or cold pressed from the seeds, nuts, or kernels of plants).

Most Carrier Oils -- also known as non-volatile β€œFixed Oils” -- are unscented or naturally lightly-scented, non-toxic, and non-irritating oils. They are commonly used to β€œcarry” essential oils, which if applied undiluted may irritate the skin. The general rule of thumb is to use a 1% to 3% dilution of essential oil in a carrier oil.

Carrier Oils help to moisturize, nourish, and protect the skin. Moreover, many are used as food ingredients. They are used in many applications including:

Here are some factors to consider when choosing a carrier oil for topical application to the skin or hair

01
    ●  Skin type: Some carrier oils are better suited for certain skin types than others. For example, Jojoba Oil is a good choice for hair care as the wax esters mimic our scalp's natural sebum, whereas marula oil is light and fast absorbing, making it ideal for facial application.
    ●  Essential oil aroma: The properties of the essential oil you are using should also be considered when choosing a carrier oil. For example, if you are using an essential oil with a relatively light scent, such as lavender oil, you may want to choose a carrier oil with a milder aroma, such as Sweet Almond Oil.
    ●  Desired effects: Some carrier oils may have specific benefits that you may be looking for. For example, Rosehip Oil contains Vitamin A, essential for collagen production, collagen being a protein that gives the skin its structure and elasticity. Argan Oil, a rich source of vitamins A, E, and K, as well as essential fatty acids, might a good choice for skin and hair that needs to be moisturized.
