A Word On Carrier Oils
Aromatherapists add the essential oils to a carrier oil. Pure essential oils are quite strong. The carrier oils act to dilute the oils and speed absorption into the skin. Aromatherapist recommend that you always add a carrier oil to your essential oils and aromatherapy oils to smooth the entire process. Combine about 10% carrier oil with 90% essential oil. Avoid purchasing carrier oils in your local supermarkets because they generally include chemicals that were added to preserve the oil. Instead, purchase organic carrier oils at your local health food store.
Here are a few of the most popular carrier oils for your consideration.
Grapeseed - Fine, and smooth carrier oil for dry skin. Absorbs into the skin very easily and quickly.
Jojoba - Luxurious oil that is rich in vitamin E.
Wheat Germ- A very nourishing and healing oil that includes minerals and high vitamin E content.
Sunflower - Contains high amount of proteins, minerals, and Vitamin E.

Try mixing a few of the oils together with carrier oils for healing and soothing treatments. However, those with sensitive skin should use caution. Test mixture on a patch of skin before applying fully to the body. Some oils might irritate sensitive skin.
Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it with use.
