If not blended, essential oils are way too strong for direct skin application – that's where the best carrier oils come in. These vegetable oils can either be used by themselves, or as bases to dilute essential oils. Hence, they can be used safely for topical purposes (like massages) or aromatherapy. Here are the best carrier oils to get – take your pick from olive oil, sesame oil and coconut oil to almond oil or castor oil. Keep them in cool, dry places away from direct sunlight for a long shelf life.
The 210 ml Omega-3-rich Khadi Omorose Sesame Carrier Oil is one of the best carrier oils made of cold-pressed sesame seeds. It's a 100% natural formulation that's packed with the goodness of Vitamin E (that smooths and nourishes skin) and Vitamin B complex (a magic ingredient for strengthening weakened hair from the roots). Use it by itself, or make it a base for diluting your favourite essential oil concentrates.
Containing 100% organic ingredients sourced from Morocco, this 15 ml Rouh Essentials Organic Moroccan Argan Oil is one of the best carrier oils with a cold-pressed argan oil formulation that's best suited for dry skin. Apply it directly onto your hair, scalp, face or body for instant nourishment, or use it to dilute your favourite essential oil concentrates.
The 200 ml Nature's Absolutes Olive Carrier Oil is one of the best carrier oils in the olive oil segment. Whether you're using it as a makeup remover/cleanser, a scalp moisturizer, a skin hydrator or a cuticle softener, prepare for renewed shine wherever you apply it, since this is a product that's very easily absorbed. Alternatively, use it as a carrier oil to dilute unblended essential oil concentrates.
The 200 ml Kama Ayurveda Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a trusty buy, since it's one of the best carrier oils in the cold-pressed coconut segment. It's 100% organic, fast-absorbing, non-sticky and has a myriad uses – from conditioning damaged hair and smoothening/evening skin to working as a great base for essential oil concentrates.
The 200 ml + 200 ml Wishcare Cold Pressed Castor & Olive Carrier Oil combo is a double bonanza, making it a strong competitor among the best carrier oils. Use these to cleanse your skin, massage in a glowing sheen, promote hair growth, moisturize your eyelashes/eyebrows, fight acne, soften your cuticles and much more. The formulations also double as carrier oils to dilute and make safe essential oil concentrates.
Recommended for dry skin and enriched with Omega-3, Omega-6 and fatty acids, St. Botanica's All-Natural Rosehip Seed Carrier Oil replenishes and repairs your skin. It's one of the best carrier oils with anti-inflammatory properties that helps reduce puffiness, redness, under-eye swelling, lines, wrinkles and other truculent skin issues. And in case you want a fragranced massage, this also doubles as the perfect base for essential oil concentrates.
The 100ml and 100% pure Khadi Natural Sweet Almond Oil is one of the best carrier oils in the almond oil segment. Use this for glowing skin, for long and lustrous hair, or mix it with 2-3 drops of your favourite essential oils for fragranced topical application. Because it's sweet, you can even blend a tablespoon with a milk/hot water drink for anti-inflammatory and pro-gut benefits.
