Is carrier oil good for skin?

If you’re interested in harnessing the healing powers of essential oils, you need to mix them with a carrier oil before you apply them topically to the skin or to your hair. Unlike essential oils, carrier oils can be applied directly to your skin. They are also sometimes known as vegetable oils.

Since an essential oil could pose a risk of irritation when applied on its own, carrier oils like sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and fractionated coconut oil are all used to protect us from their effects and make them safe for topical use.

Carrier oils can be used to make massage oils, soaps, bath oils, body oils, and so much more. If you want to see the benefits of aromatherapy on your skin, find the best carrier oil for your skin type and mix a small amount of essential oils with it.
