Essential oil is almost always accompanied by the phrase “carrier oils”. Why? Because carrier oils help carry safely diluted amounts of oil to your skin! The best news? You likely have a carrier oil already, right in your kitchen! The most basic carrier oils can be found in the kitchen, for cooking, or in your closet, for your hair.
