Ways to use coconut carrier oil - Edens Garden essential oils

If you haven’t joined the Coconut craze yet, it’s time to jump on board! Although many people may be familiar with Coconut oil’s consistency as a solid, our Coconut carrier oil is a “Fractionated Coconut Oil” and is fully liquidized. Its supple texture absorbs effortlessly into the skin, making it ideal for massage therapy. Here’s our favorite uses for this diverse carrier oil:

1. The most common use of Coconut carrier oil is to dilute concentrated essential oils. Mix your favorite Edens Garden oil with Coconut to make it safe to use topically on your skin. 

2. Massage into skin to nourish dry skin. it’s non-greasy and absorbs easily into the skin, so it won’t clog pores. Great for cracked lips too!

3. Apply a few drops to your face and massage to naturally remove makeup, then blot off with a tissue or paper towel. Avoid direct contact with eyes. 

4. Lessen skin discoloration by regularly applying coconut oil to those areas.

5. Use as a natural shaving lotion.

    Hi Marsha! Try this stimulating Rosemary and Peppermint wash recipe: Add 3 drops each Peppermint and Rosemary per ounce of shampoo. For example, to an 8 oz bottle add 24 drops each Peppermint and Rosemary. Shake well and use as normal. Peppermint provides a cooling sensation, while Rosemary increases circulation.

    Hi Sylvia! When using essential oils on the face and scalp, a lower than usual dilution rate is suggested because the skin in these areas is thinner, than say on the arms or torso. Also, heat from a shower or bath will cause EOs to permeate quicker. For this reason, we would recommend about a 1/2% dilution rate.

    0.5% dilution rate = 2 drops Peppermint EO per 2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil

    Be sure that the oil doesn’t get in your eyes when rinsing.
