Aromatherapy Carrier Oils / Spice & Vegetable Oils

It is important that vegetable oils are pure, unadulterated and naturally extracted just like the essential oils. They are an important link in the massage process because;

They possess therapeutic properties of their own

They enhance the absorption of the essential oil into the skin

They are rich in fatty acids and other nutrients.

Natural vegetable oils, extracted from nuts and seeds, have played an important role in many cultures as medicines, beauty treatments and food supplements. Typically used as a base or ‘carrier’ to dilute the essential oils when using in massage. Use approx 3-10 drops per 10ml. For babies of the elderly please consult an Aromatherapist.

  • Extraction methods
  • Expeller pressing
  • Solvent extraction
  • Cold pressing
  • Super Critical extraction (CO2)
