More info

This kit contains 4 - 1oz bottles of various carrier oils. 

Essential oils should never be used undiluted on the skin, and needs to be mixed with a carrier oil (also referred to as a base oil) to dilute the concentrated molecules, helps spread them over the surface of the skin, and helps deliver into the skin.  This is done by diluting them in carrier oils. These oils are normally obtained by cold pressing and is inert - and not volatile as essential oils.

Each carrier oil have different therapeutic properties and should be chosen for the benefit being sought.

Natural creams, lotions, gels and other moisturizing skin care products are also made with carrier oils and can be used as a means to deliver the essential oils to the skin.

Here is a brief description of the uses and properties of the oils in this kit.

Almond Sweet

Sweet almond oil is pressed from the dried kernel of sweet almonds and is rich in omega-9 and omega-6 fatty acids. Traditionally used by massage therapists to enhance their client’s experience, it also makes the external layers of skin softer and more pliable. It increases skin’s moisture level by limiting evaporation and is rich in Vitamin E and other nutrient rich lipids.

Apricot Kernel

Pure Apricot Kernel Oil is a light weight oil that is high in Vitamin A and is very rich in Oleic and Linoleic Acid. It has excellent texture that is fantastic for all skin types. Apricot Kernal Oil exhibits skin softening and moisturizing properties which makes it particularly good for skin that is dry, irritated or has prematurely aged. This oil is all natural and expeller pressed.

Coconut Oil - fractionated

Or MCT (medium chain triglycerides) is actually a fraction of the entire oil. More specifically it is the medium chain fatty acids that are separated for specific uses. The fractionation of coconut oil may be used to make caprylic/capric tryglycerides. Medium chain triglycerides such as caprylic/capric’s are most commonly used for medical applications, special diets and cosmetics. Another common use of fractionated coconut oil is a carrier oil for fragrance oil manufacturing.

Jojoba

Pure Golden Jojoba oil is very unique, known for its high vitamin E content that gives it an almost indefinite shelf life. This makes Golden Jojoba Oil great for diluting essential oils. Furthermore, jojoba offers amazing moisturizing properties making it ideal for massage oils, lotions, lip balms, soaps and more.
