Get the most out of aromatherapy with carrier oils
Aromatherapy is an ancient, holistic complementary practice that can help enhance your physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing. The essential oils used in aromatherapy work by harnessing the healing properties of natural plant and botanical compounds and essences to complement a healthy lifestyle and achieve better balance. However, while there are many essential oils known for their therapeutic properties, not all of them can be safely used in their purest form.
That’s where carrier oils come in. Carrier oils are used to dilute the concentrated essential oils to reduce their potency, so they can be used without side effects. Essential oils tend to be extracted from the aromatic leaves, bark, and roots of plants. Because of this, sometimes they are so strong that they can cause irritation or inflammation to the skin when applied. Carrier oils are gentler, more readily absorbed and can be mixed with smaller amounts of pure essential oils to dilute them, so you receive all the health-enhancing benefits with none of the side effects.
Different carrier oils have different properties, which means they can be adapted for a wide range of uses. Coconut oil, for example, is thought to have antimicrobial properties and is rich in fatty acids, which makes it an effective moisturiser. Grapeseed oil, meanwhile, has natural anti-inflammatory properties which can help to promote better healing of skin wounds and burns.
