Base Oils, also known as Carrier Oils, are derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually from the Seeds, Kernels or Nuts. Base Oils are used to dilute Essential Oils and other Oils prior to topical use.
Premium quality oils are extremely concentrated and in general, should never be applied neat to the skin. Diluting the Essential oils in proper dosage levels in a base oil, will be highly effective in treatment and less likely to irritate the skin.
