CARRIER OILS VS ESSENTIAL OILS What’s the difference?

 

This picture is a great visual of the difference between essential oils and carrier oils. The dispenser on the left is used to dispense an ointment that contains a carrier oil (grape seed oil). The dispenser on the right is used to dispense a pure essential oil. Carrier oils are fatty oils and become sticky as they sit and are exposed to the air. Essential oils are pure and evaporate away. There are only a few essential oils that will leave a sticky resin over time, these oils are usually ones that are distilled from woody, sappy plants, one that comes to mind is Patchouli Essential Oil.

This example is why we tell our customers not to put carrier oils or blends that include carrier oils in their infusers. Carrier oils will, over time, and usually very quickly, destroy your infuser. Carrier oils arecarrier vs essential oil oils such as olive oil, grape seed oil, almond oil, etc. If you need a carrier oil in a quick pinch you will properly find one or two in your kitchen cupboard.

About krameratmarket

My life starts with family; they are my motivation for self-worth and achievement. I accomplish self-worth and achievement through career, self-directed study, and interacting with people. I own Kramer at market, I currently have two market locations, products in local retail establishments, and sell online. I sell spices, herbs, teas, and essential oils; but most of all, I interact with people. They teach me and I teach them. This blog is for teaching, learning, and sharing. My writings are based on my learned knowledge, as well as my opinions, from research, reading, talking, sharing, trial and error, and life experiences. Nothing you read here should be considered fact. Each of us is different, with different needs and reactions, each of us has experienced life uniquely. See you at market!
