Grapeseed Oil

Essential oils can be mixed with vegetable oils. Any vegetable oil can thus be used to dilute essential oils. You can use any vegetable oil adapted to your skin to dilute essential oils.
Vegetal oils, frequently used for home meals, such as olive oil or sunflower oil are a common substitute for diluting. Some vegetable oils are well suited for aromatherapy because they are good carriers of essential oils into the bloodstream (such as grape seed oil, sesame oil, argan oil, …).
You can choose vegetable oil for its cosmetic or therapeutic properties. For example, some oils are antioxidants (grape seed), nourishing (sweet almond) or cell regenerative (wheat germ).
We recommend that you use only virgin, organic, first cold-pressed vegetable oils.
