A carrier oil is also known as a fixed oil as they do not evaporate when exposed to heat and light. They are extracted from plants, flowers, seeds, nuts and vegetables. They have a light smell and have varying properties. Carrier oils that are cold-pressed are purer and have a higher vitamin content. Where possible Absolute Aromas select only cold-pressed carrier oils.
Carrier oils have different properties and uses. But generally are good all round skin conditioners. They can be used alone or in a blend with other carrier oils.
