6 Best Carrier Oils & Its Benefits For Your Skin At Home

A Carrier oil is an oil that is made from plants. The safest and effective form of a carrier oil are the ones farmed organically and pesticide free.

 

Carrier oils are used to dilute or thin out essential oil before applying them to your skin. Because essential oils can be harmful and can cause an allergic reaction, carrier oils are the base that carries the essential oil in order to apply them safely to your skin.

 

Most carrier oils are unscented or very lightly scented so that it will not interfere with the essential oil scent or its therapeutic properties.

Choosing the right carrier oil depends on the underlying benefits that you want the carrier oil to perform. Keep in mind that scented carrier oils can slightly alter the essential oil aroma when blended together.

 

Some carrier oils absorb faster within your skin depending on your skin type. As a reminder, some people may have allergies to certain oils such as almond oil if you’re allergic to peanut products. While other carrier oil aids in skin reddening or acne. And lastly, think about how long this oil can be stored on your shelf life before going bad.
