The high potency and volatility of essential oils make it necessary to dilute them with carrier oils in bath and beauty products. Choosing the best carrier oils for your skin is easy when you have basic knowledge about their properties. The distinct quality of each carrier oil makes them more suitable for certain conditions like eczema, dryness or acne. Some are also better for specific skin types.
It is alright to experiment since trial and error will help you to discover the most appropriate carrier oil for your skin type.
