Aroma Therapy for Cynics
Aroma Therapy for Cynics – What are Carrier Oils? Carrier oils are another part of aromatherapy treatment. While they are generally considered as base oils or vegetable oils, they have a more generalized purpose.
Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils, CO2, and absolutes before you apply them onto your skin.
This allows you to take a diluted essential oil, combine it with a base oil or carrier oil, and it will then be considered as diluted. This will make it safe for you to put it on your skin.
Different carrier oils offer different types of properties and can have therapeutic benefits of their own or increase the therapeutic benefit of the essential oil you are using.
