How Carrier Oils Are Used?
Most Essential oils are too strong to be applied directly to skin; most would cause serious burns. So when using essential oils for aromatherapy purposes, you can mix drops of the concentrated essential oil into the carrier oils to make a suitable, diluted mix. Think of mixing essential oils with carrier oils as adding green food coloring to a glass of water. It only takes a few drops to make the glass completely green.
What Are Carrier Oils?
Most carrier oils are cold-pressed vegetable oils processed from certain parts of plants. They are generally stable and mostly free from any aroma to keep from mixing with the concentrated aroma of the essential oil.
So Why Have Different Kinds?
While carrier oils don't normally give off a strong aroma, they will give off some aroma, and this differs with each type of carrier oil. Avocado oil might give off a faint, but sweet and nutty aroma, while the Apricot oil aroma is barely even detectable. The textures and colors are different, as well.
