Topical Oil Uses
Skin Applications Certain oils can be applied to the skin, though it is very important to use caution when doing so. Almond and Jojoba are two of the most popular carrier oils and are ideal for diluting. For more information on topical applications, we suggest consulting an aromatherapist or a credible aromatherapy book. Cosmetic Additions Some topical oils can be complementary to your favorite cosmetic and personal care products. These include soaps and body wash, shampoos and conditioners, moisturizing lotions and creams, and many others. Always make sure, however, that the oil you are working with is appropriate for topical use. General Cautions Using topical oils properly requires the right mix of knowledge and responsibility. Since most are highly concentrated, it is very important to use caution before allowing an oil to come into contact with the skin to avoid irritation. Never consume or apply any topical oil directly on the skin without first learning whether or not the oil in question is appropriate, and if so, how to do it safely.
