Carrier Oils for Beginners

carrier-oils1.jpgOne of the most popular ways of using essential oils is in massage. The benefit of the essential oil can be gained both through the nose and also through the skin.

In massage, the essential oils are generally diluted about 3% with a vegetable (that means three parts essential oils with 97 parts carrier oils). These vegetable oils have therefore come to be known as 'carrier oils'. Many have a significant beneficial effect on the skin in their own right.
