    My Favorite Base/Carrier Oils

    Almond Oil

    (Prunus amygdalus var, dulcis): nourishing, similar to the natural sebum of the skin, light aroma – good for blending with essential oils

    Avocado Oil

    (Persea Americana): regenerative skin care, good for dry, itchy or mature skin, antioxidant

    Coconut Oil

    (Cocos nucifera): good for ointment base and preparations for the scalp, shaving creams, soaps, useful for dry skin

    Jojoba Oil

    (Simmondsia chinensis): technically a wax not an oil, rapidly absorbed and leaves the skin feeling smooth, good for all skin types but especially for aging skin, similar to the natural sebum of the skin, use for acne, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, anti-inflammatory, a regenerative skin care oil

    Olive Oil

    (Olea europaea): nurturing and soothing to the skin, softens hard skin, soothes inflamed skin, especially eczema and psoriasis, nice to use with herbal massage and bath oils and ointments

    Sesame Oil

    (Sesamum indicum): warming, regenerative skin care, dry skin, soothing, antioxidant, a natural skin cleanser
