What is carrier Oil?
Carrier oil, also known as base oil or vegetable oil, is used to dilute essential oils before they are applied to the skin in massage and aromatherapy. They are so named because they carry the essential oil onto the skin. Carrier oils do not have aroma though some have a mild distinctive smell. Soulflower cold processed carrier oils are as natural and unadulterated as possible. Cold-pressing is the purist method of producing carrier oils. Mineral oil should not be used as it is not absorbed by the skin.
How to Choose right carrier Oil?
There is a range of different carrier oils, each with a various therapeutic properties. Choosing oil will depend on the area being massaged, the presenting conditions & your sensitivity & requirements. For massage, viscosity is a major consideration; like grape seed oil is typically very thin, while wheatgerm oil is much thicker. Avocado & hazelnut have viscosities midway between these extremes. Carrier oils can be easily blended to combine their properties of viscosity, acceptability, lubrication, absorption, aroma & so forth.
