Carrier Oils & Butters

CLOSER LOOK AT CARRIER OILS

This workshop opens the door to the world of carrier oils, revealing their skin nourishing properties and variety of application methods.

Carrier Oils are natural vegetable oils and butters that play an important role in aromatherapy. Most of the time essential oils require a proper dilution before applied on the skin.  Carrier oils are an excellent medium for essential oils dilution and applications.

However, carrier oils themselves have many therapeutic properties for our skin.  Depending on our intention carrier oils can be used individually or blended together offering skin nourishing benefits often without any addition of essential oils. Carrier oils deserve a special place in skin care for our personal use, in massage therapy, aromatherapy, wound care and other skin care professions.

Join us to explore the texture, properties and blending techniques of carrier oils/butters like Jojoba, Tamanu, Avocado, Baobab, Shea, Coconut, Cocoa, Neem, Argan, Pomegranate Seed, Marula … to create a variety of organic, nourishing body care products and learn how to choose the appropriate carrier(s) for your skin and/or your essential oil blends. (The choice of the carrier oils in the class may vary based on the availability).

We will also discuss the role of the beeswax when creating skin products with a desired texture.

This class is full of hands-on activities making lip balms, skin moisturizing butter-lotions, salves or massage blends for dry skin, scars,  and more…,  Students make variety of skin nourishing products to take home and enjoy.

This is an entry-level, in-depth class, open to all learners including all seeking to improve their body butters blending techniques. Aromatherapists, massage therapists, skin care professionals and all others who care about their healthy skin are welcome.
