Carrier Oils

Carrier oil, also known as base oil or vegetable oil,derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually from the seeds, kernels or the nuts, is used to dilute essential oils and absolutes before they are applied to the skin in massage and aromatherapy. They are so named because they carry the essential oil onto the skin. Carrier oils do not contain a concentrated aroma, unlike essential oils, though some, such as olive, have a mild distinctive smell. Cold-pressing and maceration are the two main methods of producing carrier oils.
