Using essential oils can be very beneficial for natural skin care, but when used incorrectly, they can cause severe irritation to the skin. Furthermore, they can cause burning or redness, and all these things happen because the oils themselves can be quite harsh if you don’t dilute them. They are highly concentrated, and as such, they can wreak havoc on your body if you’re not being careful. And that’s where natural carrier oils come to the rescue.

Enter Natural Carrier Oils

Just what are natural carrier oils? Well, the name kind of implies what they do. Natural carrier oils are vegetable oils that are used to dilute essential oils before applying them to the body. They “carry” the essential oils to your body without having to worry about whether the dose of the essential oils is too strong. Thus, they are an important part of our everyday natural skin care.

Types of Natural Carrier Oils

Nowadays, you can find many different types of these oils on the market, including organic carrier oils. They can be a great addition to your natural skin care routine. Here are just some of the oils you can use in your everyday life.

· Sunflower oil

· Coconut oil

· Grape seed oil

· Avocado oil

· Apricot kernel oil

· Emu oil

· Jojoba oil

These are just some of the natural carrier oils that are good for diluting essential oils. What’s also good about them is that they don’t have an overpowering aroma. Most of them, however, do have a faintly sweet and nutty aroma. If you come across oil that has a very strong smell, that’s a good sign that it has gone rancid, and you should avoid it.

How to Use Carrier Oils

Once you’ve selected a carrier oil of your choice and an essential oil to go with it, you need to start mixing them. There are certain rules that you need to follow, and those will depend based on the age of the person that’s using that oil mixture. Improve your natural skin care routine with these simple tips:

For starters, adults should 1 or 2 drops of essential oil with a teaspoon of carrier oil. On the other hand, children can also use the mixture, but in a more mild concentration. For example, children older than 12 should use 1 drop of essential oil per 1 teaspoon of carrier oil. Even newborns and toddlers can use it, but in that case, parents should be very careful. The recommended concentration for them is 1 drop of essential oil per one and a half tablespoon of carrier oil.

Organic Carrier Oils

In this day and age, we pay a lot of attention to organic products when it comes to natural skin care. And the same goes for organic carrier oils. They are quite important for our health, and lucky for us, you can find lots of organic carrier oils, either in stores, or specialized shops.

When talking about organic carrier oils, we should focus on cold-pressed oils. These will be a much better choice, as the process of cold-pressing retains the beneficial properties of the oil, which ultimately means better health effects for you.
