Carrier Oils & Their Uses:

What Are Carrier Oils? 
Carrier oils are oils made from the seed, nuts, or kernels of their respective plants. Some Essential Oils cannot be applied directly to the skin, and some people have more sensitive skin than others – so there is an occasional need to dilute your pure Essential Oils with a carrier oil for safety and to avoid irritation. Carrier Oils are also used frequently in sugar scrub recipes, lotions, balms, and salves. Carrier Oils do not have strong odors, and won’t effect the rich aromas of your pure Essential Oils. Here are Spark Naturals’ Carrier Oils, and their benefits:

    1. Each carrier oil is just that, an oil. When an oil gets on a fabric there is potential the oil may discolor the fabric, or it might leave that “oil mark”.
