    Carrier Oils for Skin

    I've posted an essential oil list separately. The following are carrier oils for the essential oils.

    This is not a be-all end-all list. Everyone has different skin and some oils in a different category might work for your type of skin, even if it's not listed in under your skin type. Remember, it's possible that some of the oils lists for your skin type may not work as well as others. It's a matter of trial and error. I also didn't list every possible oil available.

    Is is a great oil, but it also depends on how you plan to use it.

    Andiroba has similar properties to that of Neem oil but *without* the characteristic unfriendly scent. Avocado, babassu, camellia, castor, coconut, grapeseed, jojoba, and hempseed are suppose to help stimulate hair growth. Virtually all the oils are good for moisturizing and strengthening the hair shafts.

    I've read that Sapote Seed oil and Brahmi oil help with hair loss, but I've not used them.

    Work with what you've got. Try mixing grapeseed and jojoba and add rosemary and juniper EOs.

    Thanks I will give it a go^^!!

    Darn and I saw Brahmi oil today when I was out and about. I just might have to go get that tomorrow and try it as well. I have been applying Skinactives Hair serum but also wanted to try a few oils and see how I do with them.

    The Skinactives product is nice, it just makes my hair SUPER crusty and I can't stand it. I only apply it at night when my hair is wet, but still, it makes my head almost stick to my pillow case- when I wake in the AM Mr Gymrat goes-

    I don't know what's in their hair serum, so I'm unsure why it leaves your hair crusty.

    You can use the oils lightly, like a leave in conditioner or in a heavier application, similar to a hot oil treatment. It won't happen overnight, though, so give it time.

    What carrier oil works best with Frankincense. Also, can you tell me how much of each to mix. I'd like to use on my face. What do you think about that? The oil was given to me for my pet who had tumors and I was desperate to try anything. He has since passed and I wasn't sure what to do with the leftover oil. Thanks!
