Many different kinds of fixed oils can be used to dilute essential oils. These are the base oils used in making many natural cosmetic or beauty products. Fixed oils do not evaporate like essential oils and are often called carrier oils. Each oil has different properties and will impart those into the products you make.  Essential oils should be blended with a carrier oil to make it safe for use on the skin. Carrier oils are base oils that are used as solvents to dilute essential oils when they are used for aromatherapy massage.

Aromatherapy carrier oils like sweet almond oil, jojoba or grapeseed oil, when processed properly, contain a considerable amount of vitamins and other beneficial properties. Also, when applied to the skin, they should feel light and smooth and not sticky or greasy. In addition, carrier oils are not only important to the practice of aromatherapy but also to the soap making industry.
