carrier oils because they carry the essential oil onto the skin.

Grapeseed oil is truly superb in every regard. It has a mild green color with a pleasant odor, silken texture, and great absorbtion rate. Generally employed as a base oil for many creams, lotions and as a general carrier oil.
Grapeseed is especially useful for skin types that do not absorb oils too well, and it does not leave a greasy feeling. Wonderful for those with skin sensitivities because of its natural non-allergenic properties.
Jojoba oil comes from the beans of the shrub like plant, simmondsia chinensis. This is the highest grade certified organic. It is bright and golden in color and is regarded as the most favored in the carrier oil family because of its advanced molecular stability.
