Have you wondered what in the world a carrier oil is? When I first started to use Young Living and I was reading online I would see words like: neat, carrier oils, c.o., dilute and I would think what in the world does this mean and what do I use!
Then as I started to use I started to ask more and more questions and do some more digging!
Basically some essential oils should be diluted. Instructions may call for it, you may have sensitive skin or you may just want to use all of your Young Living essential oils with a carrier to extend the life of your oil!
There are a lot of different oils you can use for a carrier. Some of those options are YL V-6, Coconut, Olive, Almond, Grapeseed, Jojoba, and Sunflower. Those are not the only options you have but gives you a place to start. No matter what you decide upon for a carrier oil make sure that you are selecting the ones that are unrefined, cold pressed, pure, and organic.
In our home we all have different ones we have a preference for. I love using coconut for anything but my face. On my face I love grapeseed or shea butter. Jack David loves grapeseed oil. Bella loves coconut or olive. As you can see we all have things we prefer. Thankfully in our house we have a lot of them to choose from. We have the ones we use in the kitchen for cooking and then we have the ones we use for personal use in the two main bathrooms!
If you are unsure what oil to start with or how to figure out what would be best for you I suggest visiting this site: Comedogenic Ratings (will it clog pores and give acne). It was very helpful when I was starting out!
