Our Favorite Carrier Oils:
Carrier oils are a must have when you’re using essential oils topically on your skin. These are our favorites:
A carrier oil can be any cold-pressed, seed-based oil (ideally organic and unrefined). This includes most cooking oil, like coconut, avocado, and olive oils. Personally, we LOVE using sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, and Young Living’s V6 Carrier oil.
Need empty bottles? You can order them from any bottle supply shop that offers essential oil bottles, or even off of Amazon. Personally, we save our old essential oil bottles, remove the labels, and reuse the bottles. To reuse your bottles, ensure they are clean by soaking the empty bottle disassembled, and boil it for at least 15 minutes. Then let dry. Need a fun roller bottle? Here are some of our favorite essential oil roller bottles on Amazon.
References if you decide to use essential oils with or around animals:
If you’re using essential oils around your family pets, be sure to allow them access out of the room and into a room where you’re not diffusing. This way they’re able to escape when they feel they’ve had enough. Please also consider picking up a reference guide specific to using essential oils with animals.
