A Carrier Oil is really anything that can help “carry” the essential oil further when applying it to your body.
Olive Oil is one of the most common carrier oils and the one I use most. I use it with my massage clients and in my body products. I use olive oil as my after bath oil, as a make-up remover and as a face oil. It’s a great match for most skin types and it isn’t an allergen like many nut oils can be. It’s also very easy to come by and relatively inexpensive when you buy in bulk. It’s the main reason I have a Sam’s membership!
