Notes: Jojoba "oil" is actually a liquid wax. It is a higher priced oil and is frequently blended in a small dilution (10%) with other oils. It has a very long shelf-life and is the closest to the skins own naturally occurring oils. It dissolves sebum which makes it great for acne. It is also great for nourishing the hair and is beneficial with hair loss conditions. Jojoba is usually the base oil for many oil-based perfume blends and can also be used to extend very expensive essential oils such as jasmine, rose and sandalwood. Jojoba contains myristic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties.

Carrier oils, also referred to as base oils or vegetable oils, are used to dilute essential oils, CO2s and absolutes before applying to the skin. Each carrier oil offers different properties and the choice depends on the therapeutic benefit being sought. Unlike essential oils, carrier oils do not evaporate or impart their aroma as strongly as essential oils. However, they usually have a shorter shelf life and can be mixed with a natural preservative such as vitamin E or wheatgerm oil for longer storage. Carrier oils should be natural and preferably cold-pressed. This ensures that the therapeutic qualities remain in the oil and have not been damaged by heat or chemicals. People allergic to nuts should not use any nut-based oils.
