FAQ: Purpose of a Carrier Oil

seed oil

 

Q: What is the Purpose of a Carrier Oil?

A : A carrier oil is a fatty oil produced in the seed of the plant.

This fatty oil is loaded with nutrients and is metabolized during a seedling’s germination- before the young shoot pokes its head above the soil to harness the sunlight and produce it’s own food (photosynthesis,) the baby plant must survive off the fatty oil inside the seed.

seed germination

We know these oils primarily as kitchen oils, such as olive oil, avacado oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil almond oil, etc. These fatty oils are NOT essential oils because they serve an entirely different purpose in the life of the plant. Carrier oils, or seed oils, are  the plant’s way of providing “food” and ensuring the survival of future generations. Essential oils are actually manufactured INSIDE the plant, for all the plant’s current needs.

But what do carrier oils DO? And why do you hear so much about them in the world of essential oils?

In short, Carrier Oils CARRY OILS. I know, shocker right? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Let me explain :)

Carrier oils are, in a sense, a way of diluting an essential oil. You probably remember from elementary school science that oil and water don’t mix. But oils blend delightfully with other oils (lipids with lipids) so we use a carrier oil to “stretch” or dilute an essential oil.  There are many reasons why we would want to do this.

  1. Essential oils are extremely concentrated and incredibly POWERFUL. Some oils are so powerful, in fact, that one drop can cause a reaction on sensitive skin. Take Oregano, for example. Oregano works wonders for the immune system, respiratory system, muscles and bones… but we don’t want to go slathering ourselves with pure Oregano oil, or things will get mighty uncomfortable… REAL FAST! But we do want to harness the power of this oil, so we dilute it with a carrier. One drop of Oregano in a 1/4 tsp of carrier should do the trick- the dilution ratios are up to you.
  2. Essential oil drops are SMALL! Let’s say you’ve had an amazing arm workout at the gym… a little TOO amazing (if you catch my drift) and you are needing a little PanAway or Peppermint to help those overworked arms feel less like undercooked spaghetti. Add a few drops f essential oil to a carrier and VOILA, you’ve made a virtual  massage oil that will ease your achs and pans (👈see what I did there?) Basically, a carrier oil allows you to increase the surface area (the spread) of an oil over a larger area without draining your entire PanAway bottle!
  3. On that note, Carrier oils are UH-MAZING massage oils… just add in your favorite EO and you’re whisked away to cloud 9
  4. Carrier Oils help dilute oils taken internally. Yes, you heard me right- Young Living has an entire line of oils (called Vitality) that are safe for ingestion. While you can place a drop in your water or a drop under the tongue, many YL members love to make veggie capsules with their oils. By adding a carrier oil, you will decrease the chance of an oil hitting your stomach and feeling too “strong,” Sometimes our systems can be sensitive to essential oils, especially if we are new to ingesting them. Remember, EOs are suuuuuuuuuuper concentrated! One drop of Lemon is the equivalent of 70 lemon rinds! Fatty oils help “soften the blow” to our digestive tract and ease the metabolic process.
  5. Carrier oils help ease any contact sensitization. If you ever apply an oil topically and feel discomfort, simply start applying a carrier oil over that area and massage until the sensitivity goes away. This is really just another form of dilution. Also, if you accidentally get essential oils in the eyes, rinse your eye with CARRIER OIL (not water!) The fatty oil will literally “carry” the essential oil away. Water would drive the oil in deeper.
  6. Roller Balls-  when you want to make your oils stretch further, place several drops of your favorite EO into a rollerball and fill the rest up with a liquid carrier oil (coconut hardens at room temperature) Roller Balls are an easy and convenient way to carry oils with you and apply on the go.

** One small note- just because you are diluting the essential oil does NOT mean you are diluting its therapeutic effect!!! Those tiny oil molecules will enter your body and get to work just the same as if the oil was applied at full concentration. The ONLY difference is that the effect on the skin won’t feel as intense. That’s the beautiful thing about using a carrier- the oils will get busy working and you won’t even notice they are there! 👊

These are the main uses for a carrier oil. Young Living had a WONDERFUL blend of fatty oils called V-6. It has a very neutral smell, and is not greasy. I highly recommend it as you start your oils journey. Of course, you will also want to experiment with your favorite carrier- I happen to LOVE coconut oil!!! So have fun, experiment and find out which carrier works best for you!

💜 FUN FACTS 💜

Many of the single oils in this blend have moved people in a profound way, often bringing them together in a spiritual oneness with God. This blend works to bring together  emotional and spiritual thoughts and feelings for greater focus and clarity. Use it to “gather your mind” by preventing the fracturing of thought energy which often happens when we are distracted, stressed or feeling overwhelmed.

💜 WHAT’S IN IT 💜

  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) oil – traditionally known to balance the body and work wherever there is a need.  Helps promote feelings of consciousness, health, love, and peace
  • Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) flower oil – healing, calming, and balancing- geranium helps open and elevate the mind, and is uplifting to the spirit
  • Galbanum (Ferula galbaniflua) resin oil- used Biblicly (combines with Frankincense) to make a holy incense that would enhance one’s communication with the creator
  • Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) oil – contains sesquiterpenes,  which help oxygenate and pineal gland and the pituitary. A key ingredient of Holy Incense in the Bible, Frankincense is used to enhance ones communication with the creator and promotes a positive attitude
  • Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum) wood oil- like Frankincense, it is high in sesquiterpenes- also alleviates depression, and assists with the removal of negative programming. Sandalwood helps us accept others with an open heart while diminishing one’s own egocentricity
  • Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata) flower oil- YLANG YLANG – helps to balance the male-female energies so one can more easily focus their thought and filter out all the distractions. Ylang Ylang brings about feelings of self- love, confidence, joy and peace and has often been associated as an aphrodisiac
  • Black Spruce (Picea mariana) leaf oil -grounds the body, creating balance necessary to give and receive. Spruce helps release emotional blocks
  • Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) bark oil – part of the formula the Lord gave Moses (Exodus 30:22-27) it is a powerful purifier, oxygenator and it enhances the action of other oils. Cinnamon has a stimulating and tonic affect on the body and mind
  • Rose (Rosa damascena) flower oil- the most highly prized oil of beauty, rose possesses the highest frequency of any essential oil, which helps bring balance and harmony to the body. Rose is said to attract love and enhance self-love, bringing joy to the heart

💜 WHAT IT DOES 💜

Gathering™ helps overcome the chaotic energy that bombards our everyday life and clouds our focus, thus diverting us from the path leading to higher achievement. Gathering combines galbanum and frankincense oils from resins used by Moses for incense with sandalwood to help gather our emotional and spiritual forces so we can achieve greater unity of purpose. This blend is especially designed for emotional support to help one stay focused, grounded, connected and clear- it enables you to stay on task and stay focused on “gathering” yourself to reach your highest potential. This blend works especially well for people who face hurdles, tasks or challenges without a proper nights sleep.

If this isn’t what life’s journey is about, I don’t know what is.🤷🏻‍♀️

Nobody could have ever told me that I would be a stay-at-home military wife, homeschooling two boys. I wouldn’t have listened. 🙇🏻‍♀️

If someone had predicted that I would move 12 times in 15 years (twice overseas and twice into an RV) I would have laughed them out of the room! Not this girl! I had goals and aspirations- none of which was to stay at home wiping little noses, teaching abc’s and hanging broken picture frames in government-issued housing! 🙅🏻‍♀️

But God had different plans- and those plans come with twists and turns, mountains and huge valleys, trials and triumphs.🎢

If I’d had my dream career, I would have never spent four glorious years in Japan. 🇯🇵

I would never have discovered that simple living suits me far better than the palatial home of my dreams. 🚐

I would never have understood the richness of community, the depth of gratitude towards our service members, the appreciation of foreign cultures, the passion for travel… ✈️

Had I not married a Marine, I might never have loved as generously, lost as deeply, prayed as fervently as a military wife is known to do. 🙏🏻

If I’d had my dream career, I would have been too busy to savor the precious and fleeting moments of my children’s youth. If I’d had life my way, I would have missed so much of what really matters in life.
❤️
Through all this time, through all the hardships and sacrifice, through all the dreams and ambitions that have fallen by the wayside- I have not found myself.  Thank God- I have found who I was meant to be. And it’s something far better than anything I could have imagined.
