Compare Edens Garden Carrier Oils
Carrier oil and essential oil both contain abundant therapeutic benefits found in nature. Essential oils are incredibly powerful and potent and need to be diluted with a carrier oil when applied topically to avoid skin irritation. To put it simply, carrier oils "carry" 100% pure essential oils into the skin.
What are Carrier Oils?
Carrier oils can be used on their own for their restorative properties or as companions to essential oils. Also known as base oils or fixed oils, carrier oils are made up of essential fatty acids like linoleic and oleic acid which can deeply nourish the skin.
Obtained from plants, nuts, seeds and kernels through a cold-pressing process, carrier oils have an array of therapeutic components. They contain antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and other soothing nutrients that can have a dramatic effect on the body.
As non-volatile compounds, carrier oils do not dissipate when exposed to the air and they have a thicker consistency and more subdued aromas than essential oils. When essential oils are diluted with carrier oils, the efficacy of those essential oils is increased because they are then easily absorbed through the skin.
