Although safe for the skin, essential oils must be used in precise concentrations to be beneficial for the skin. The effectiveness of an essential oil relates to the purity, quality, stability and oxidization when being used topically. If essential oils are used at very high concentration it can be incredibly irritating to the skin and cause long term damage. Dilution is the first most important factor to safely using essential oils and can be done through a carrier oil.
In our range of Pure Body Luxe face and body oils, we use a variety of carrier oils to dilute essential oils to a level of concentration that is safe for the skin (around 1%). The main carrier oils we use include Apricot oil, Coconut oil, Castor oil, Almond oil and Organic Sunflower oil.
