First, what are essential oils?

Essential oils come from the compounds found in all parts of a plant – seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts. They are harvested by experts and distilled to extract the oils by using precise pressures and temperatures. These precise measurements protect the plants and oils from being oxidized or destroyed by heat. read more details

  • Feather-light emollient provides a soothing barrier without clogging pores.
  • Ideal for combining with essential oils before applying topically to the skin.
  • Completely soluble with all essential oils; odorless, colorless, and non-staining.

Other carrier oils include:
