Carrier Oils are vegetable oils derived from the fatty portion of a plant.
They are used to dilute essential and other oils prior to application and carry the essential oil onto the skin.
There are several types of carrier oils. Here is a list of just a few of them:
One way to quickly put a carrier oil to use is to make a massage oil blend. Use ½ of a fluid ounce of the carrier oil of your choice and add 3-4 drops of the essential oil of your choice.

Consult with a physician before using carrier and essential oils.
