"Essential oils" are powerful plant essences. They are 100 times more concentrated than dried herbs and flowers. Essential oils are potent herbal medicines. Most are made by passing steam through plant material and catching the condensation. This is called steam distillation.
The resulting liquid has a small molecular structure that can pass through skin. Most essential oils must be diluted with a carrier to reduce their potency. Other examples of essential oils are jasmine, rose, sandalwood, and patchouli.
"Carrier oils" are other oils used to dilute essential oils. Most are regular cooking and salad oils that are of food grade. The best are cold-pressed from organically grown vegetables, nuts, and flowers. That means that they are not chemically extracted or heated to high temperatures! Each carrier has its own personality. Other examples of carrier oils are avocado, jojoba, sesame, and apricot kernel.
