    what is a “carrier oil”?

    • Roberta says:

      It is a milder oil that you mix your essential oil for topical use. It can be olive oil, almond oil and others that I can’t remember. Look it up and there are some other options I cant remember now.

        It sure is! Thanks Roberta! A carrier oil is an oil that is moisturizing and is used to “carry” the essential oils so that they don’t harshly irritate the skin. There are a TON of carrier oils that you can choose from some from your pantry (coconut, olive, hemp seed, avocado, almond) and some a little more expensive but extremely healing (raspberry seed, rosehip seed, jojoba, etc.). It is very important to use a carrier oil with essential oils, when applying topically as there are only a handful of essential oils that do not cause irritation when applied neat (alone, without a carrier oil).

    Hi Christina :) I was just wondering, I have been using Cinnamon Leaf EO and not Cinnamon Bark as shown here. There is a pretty big difference in price. Is there a significant difference in functionality between the two?

    • though both are antibacterial and antiseptic cinnamon leaf oil is the better option for skin contact than cinnamon bark essential oil. Both should be avoided during pregnancy but cinnamon leaf is the one you would also be able to utilize in body butters and lip balms whereas the cinnamon bark essential oil works great in diffusion, cleaning, room/air sprays etc. So, to answer your question you can use the cinnamon leaf essential oil! :)

  4. [...] to protect and defend against bacteria and fungus growth. I personally make my own mixture of Thieves oil as I find buying the oil can be rather expensive. Oregano oil is also said to be very effective [...]

  5. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different website
    and thought I might as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to looking into your web page yet again.
