What is a carrier oil?

posted in: Questions | 0

Carrier oils have little or no fragrance and are use to dilute oils before coming into contact with the skin prior to a massage. Essential oils may irritate skin and should not be used directly, mixing with a carrier oil will help to spread further over the body.

Also referred to as base oils, carrier oils can be mixed with an essential oil of the clients preference dependant on the needs of the specific client, I like to use almond oil with lemongrass a very refreshing smell.

If you have a specific essential oil you would like to be used during your massage please make a note in the comment section when making the booking to allow me to have this mixed prior to your arrival and warming for you.
