When Should I Use a Carrier Oil?

Sharon Stay

Carrier oils are used to dilute the essential oil, before applying it directly to the skin. The carrier oil slows down the body's absorption of the essential oil and will lessen any stinging that may come from the essential oil being applied undiluted to the skin. Not all essential oils require a carrier oil. Each person's needs are different. Usually carrier oils are applied when you are unsure if an essential oil will sting  or irritate the skin.
