How To Apply Essential Oils To Skin
Essential oils are fat soluble, which means they are immediately absorbed by the skin. Some essential oils have stronger qualities than others and affect us in different ways, and some can be milder than others. Carrier oils serve to dilute the essential oil before applying it to your skin. They act as the base for “carrying” the essential oil that is being mixed into it.
All oils require dilution with a carrier oil when used topically on the skin. You can use any of these carrier oils: Olive oil, Jojoba, Fractionated Coconut, Sweet Almond, Avocado, Argan and Rosehip Seed
