You may have heard the term “carrier oil” used when talking about Essential Oils. Simply put, a carrier oil is a vegetable oil that you use for diluting your essential oils! There are a ton of different options for carrier oils to use such as (but not limited to) coconut oil, olive oil, or grapeseed oil, and Young Living’s V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex.
Dilution with a carrier oil does not dilute the effect of the essential oil. In fact, it prevents waste due to excessive application. Look for dilution ratios on Young Living essential oil bottles.
Below you’ll find one of my favorite infographics on what carrier oils are, and which ones to use!
If you have ever wondered how much to dilute an oil if you’re applying it to your kids (or even yourself) this little chart is super helpful!
When in doubt, check your labels to see how Young Living suggests using them safely!
