Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that need to be diluted when being applied to the skin. This will help to prevent skin irritations that can occur when essential oils are applied neat (undiluted).
Infused oils (or macerated oils) are made by placing finely chopped herbs into a cold pressed oil for a period. The oil is then drained and collected, the result is infused oil. Infused oils can be applied directly onto the skin and used as a base to dilute essential oils.
The Oil Garden has a selection of carrier oils (bases) that are suitable to dilute essential oils. The choice of carrier (base) depends upon personal preference and the method of application i.e. massage, bath etc.
The Oil Garden blends are a great way to use 100% pure essential oils, being cost effective and ready to use. Synergistically blended to enhance the properties of each oil, these blends will refresh, relax and arouse your senses.
