For many people, vegetable oils are simply something to have in the kitchen for cooking or perhaps used for massage as means of lubrication and as carrier oils for essential oils. In fact, most aromatherapists and massage therapists usually focus on the 2% of what goes onto the skin and into the bloodstream during a massage and don’t pay much attention to the remaining 98%. The 2% being of course the essential oils, on which more and more legal restrictions are being placed, and the 98%, the carrier oils or the vegetable oils.
Vegetable Oils are used as carrier oils and are added to Creams, Lotions and used for massage, as well as Skin, Eye and Hair Care. By learning each Oil's unique properties you can tailor-make blends for different skin types and conditions. They can also be used in hair care products very effectively. Just by adding different vegetable oils together you can make synergistic healing blends - add other fat-soluble raw materials and active ingredients such as Botanical CO2 Extracts, Remodelling Intense, Vitamins A and E, Q10 plus E, etc and you can have a very powerful healing or skin rejuvenating blend - ready in minutes. Simply add Essential Oils
and bottle - no heating required!
