How To Apply Essential Oils Topically
Applying essential oils topically is a safe and effective way to yield the benefits that essential oils hold for your skin and other aspects of the human body. Due to their chemical makeup, essential oils can easily penetrate the skin and offer a localized benefit to the applied area. Essential oils are easily absorbed into the skin; however, you can prolong the benefits of an essential oil by using a carrier oil to slow down the evaporation of the oil, allowing it to moisturize the skin.
What is a carrier oil? Carrier oils are lipid-based substances that can be used to dilute essential oils. The carrier oil will literally help to ‘carry’ your essential oil to the desired area. Using a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil allows you to effectively apply an essential oil topically without altering the potency of the oil. When you dilute an essential oil, it enhances absorption by increasing the surface area of absorption, and helps reduce the chance of skin sensitivities.
Remember, deciding when and how to dilute your essential oils is a personal decision that should be based on a number of factors including the oil’s chemistry, your usage preferences, and any personal sensitivity to certain oils.
