CARRIER  OILS  INFORMATION

Carrier Oils are referred to as base oils or vegetable oils, and are used to dilute essential oils and absolutes before applying to the skin. They “carry” the essential oil onto the skin. Different carrier oils offer different properties and the choice of carrier oil can depend on the therapeutic benefit being sought. Carrier oils are generally vegetable oils derived from the fatty portions of the plant. Unlike essential oils that evaporate and have a concentrated aroma, carrier oils do not evaporate or impart their aroma as strongly as essential oils, if at all (most carrier oils are virtually odourless). Also the colour of carrier oils can vary widely from batch to batch according to the crop and time of year etc.  Essential oils are added to carrier oils to impart both a scent and their healing properties. We would always advise that a ‘patch test’ is carried out before using the carrier oil on the skin to ascertain if your skin is sensitive to it.

SAFETY ADVICE

Carrier Oils should never be taken internally as they are cosmetic grade (for external use only)
Always keep out of reach of children and pets.
Avoid any contact with eyes or mouth.
Oils are flammable and should be kept away from naked flames or heat sources.
 


MASSAGE
Essential Oils are also used by Aromatherapists in a diluted form in carrier oil such as grapeseed oil although many other carrier oils can be used. The usual dilution of Essential oils is about 1 to 2 per cent, (5 drops of essential oil to 10ml of carrier oil), when they may be used as a massage oil or compress for their clients. Do not apply to open cuts or broken skin.
