Carrier oils are vegetable oils, pressed from the fatty portions of plants (seeds, nuts, kernels).
Essential oils when applied to the skin undiluted may cause severe irritation or reactions in some individuals. As such, carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils prior to topical application.
Our carrier oils are extracted using the cold pressed method. This means that the oil has been pressed from the fatty portions of the botanical without the use of added heat. High temperatures can harm the fragile and precious nutrients in the oil.
