Essential Oils | Carrier Oils | Skin Care Manufacturer

Before buying any product we all have some queries and doubts related to those. Though pure botanical extracts and essential oils have been invigorating minds for thousands of years, you may still have lots of questions and doubts.

Here are a few commonly asked questions to help solve most of your queries regarding essential oils and carrier oils.

What is the difference between essential oil & carrier oil ?

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid that occurs naturally and is volatile in nature. It is obtained from herbal plants and trees by one of the many processes such as hydro-distillation or cold pressing (expression) or solvent extraction of the characteristic aroma of the plant part from which it is extracted. Obtained in the pure form, essential oil is not been processed, diluted or manipulated and adulterated in any way with solvents or other additives. Essential oils can be extracted from various parts of plants like leaves, barks, roots, seeds, flower & resin. Some of the prime applications of the oils include aromatherapy, cosmetics, household cleaning products, perfumery, medicine, incense, and as a flavouring agent in drinks and food. These oils are also considered valuable in industries like food and fragrance.

CARRIER OILS, on the other hand, are used in aromatherapy, a therapy where various essential oils are applied to the body to aid both physical and emotional health as well as well-being. Carrier oils are used to dilute the concentrated essential oils so they can be applied to the skin without any side effect.

Commonly used carrier oils include vegetable oils like avocado oil or coconut oil. These oils are extracted from nuts, seeds, or kernels of their parent plant.At times, some unscented body lotions as well as Aloe vera gels are also used as carrier oils.

How do I use Essential Oils ?

Essential Oils can be used in the following ways:

  • Medical treatment like Insomnia, headaches, migraine, etc.
  • Massage
  • Inhalations
  • Facial Steam
  • Diffusers
  • Medical treatment

Essential oils can be applied to the body in three ways:

  • Applied directly to the skin
  • Inhaled
  • Ingested

These methods are further subdivided into different usage/application ways. For instance, you can apply essential oils topically using compresses and sprays. However, the choice of essential oil and the results desired affect the method of application. While some essential oils are irritating to the skin because of their chemistry, these would need more dilution or might better be used by inhalation.

Some points to be taken care of, when using essential oils:

  • Do not take the oils internally unless recommended by a qualified and expert practitioner.
  • Keep all the essential oils out of reach of kids and flame since essential oils are highly inflammable.
