During the use of essential oils, due to the relatively high concentration of essential oils, the irritation is relatively large, except for a few essential oils that can be used directly, most of the essential oils need to be diluted before use; compound essential oils are formulated from a variety of different types of essential oils However, it is still a pure essential oil, so it needs to be diluted before use.

The rich vitamins in it have a good effect even if they are not matched with essential oils, and when used with appropriate essential oils, it will have a "plus" effect. The base oil used for aromatherapy is extracted by cold pressing below 60°C, which can fully absorb the minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and other nutrients in plants, and give the skin nourishment and help in addition to the function of essential oils.
In addition to vitamins, carrier oils contain the most fatty acids. Therefore, the combination of carrier oils and essential oils, fatty acid content is also the focus of consideration. Fatty acids are essential components for building the body. Some fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the human body and must be ingested through diet. They are called essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids are important components for building cells. Once lacking, health problems are prone to occur. Grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, and jojoba oil are the three most common carrier oils, which are widely used.
